Steel defeat 
puts Alliance 

into disarray 



The Liberal Assembly yes- 
terday humiliated their leader, 
Mr David Steel, and threw the 
Alliance with the SDP into 
disarray on the crucial ques- 
tion of nuclear defence policy. 

After a passionate debate 
the Liberals made it plain they 
valued their traditional anti- 
nuclear policy more than the 
need for Alliance unity. They 
rejected Mr Steel’s appeal to 
back him and Dr David 
Owen, the SDP leader, in their 
quest to agree with the French 
on a minimum Europ ean 
deterrent, fbe statagem which 
the two leaders had adopted to 
seek compromise on the two 
parties* differences over the 
future of Polaris. 

The Liberal Assembly 
backed a motion endorsing 
the joint alliance defence 
commission report as a basis 
for negotiations with the SDP 
on a defence policy at the next 
election. But they passed by 
652 votes to 625 an amend- 
ment saying that any Euro- 
pean defence agreement made 
by Mr Steel and Dr Owen 
must be non-nuclear. 

Even Mr Steel's MPs were 
split on the issue, with Mr 
Michael Meadowcroft (Leeds 
West) and Mr Simon Hughes 
(Southwark and Bermondsey) 
making the key speeches 
against the leadership's line. 

Mr Steel said last night the 
vote was “not a serious set- 
back. it was an irritant". He

with talks in West Germany 
on the Alliance initiative.

not ask for a non-nuclear 
policy tomorrow; that would 
be unrealistic although he 
hoped to achieve a minimum 
deterrent lower than the level 
which existed at present. 

But yesterday's surprise re- 
sult was a massive blow to 
Alliance credibility which 
alarmed SDP observers at the 
assembly and raised the spec- 
tre of the Liberals and the SDP 
entering the next election with 
separate defence policies. 

Dr Owen has made it dear 
that he is prepared to go it 
alone if the Liberals do not 
back what he regards as a 
“serious” defence policy, and 
that includes maintaining a 
nuclear deterrent capacity. Mr

Israeli pilots reported ac-

noon when they returned from 
a raid on what was described 
by a military spokesman as “a 
mountaintop terrorist base" 
east of the town of Damur, 
about 10 miles south of Beirut. 

The spokesman said the 
targets were a long way from 
populated areas and were used 
by the Democratic Front as a

The tactics employed by the 
two Alliance leaders came 
badly unstuck. They had both 
emphasized the prospects of a 
spring election, gambling that 
the Liberals would fall into 
line behind Mr Steel rather 
than risk Alliance unity at 
such a time. But a series of 
apeakers turned the debate 
into a test of Liberals' 
commirment to their tra- 
ditional values 

Mr Steers supporters argued 
last night that be had not lost 
his freedom of manoeuvre. Mr 
Paddy Ashdown, the MP for 
Yeovil, sai± “It is difficult but 
it is not a catastrophe. The 
vote was very close ... . 

For Mr Steel and Dr Owen 
the main purpose of this year's 
party conferences was to dem- 
onstrate that the Alliance was 
closing the gap on defence 
policy and heading united into 
the election. That objective 
has now been frustrated. 

Mr Steel was being blamed 
last night by some on his side 
of the argument for overplay- 
ing his hand. He had seemed 
to become more hawkish on 
the defence question with 
every speech and interview 
over the past fortnight.

Russians condemn 
‘space tyranny’ 

From Onr Correspondent, New York 
President Reagan was cir- first strike. The first strike 

cumventing the 1972 Anti- 
ballistic Missile Treaty with 
his “evil designs" in the 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
(SD1). Mr Eduard Shevard- 
nadze, the Soviet Foreign 
Minister, said yesterday. 

H was an attempt to estab- 
lish a military tyranny in 
space. He emphasized the 
need for a nuclear lest ban 
which he said was the corner- 
stone of Moscow's arms con- 
trol policy.

But bis criticism of the US 
was in discemably measured 
tones. He matched Mr Rea- 
gan's conciliatory words of the 
previous day about Moscow’s 
“serious effort" and “move- 
ment" in breaking the dead- 
lock over arms control.

The raid does not appear to 
be connected with an expected 
reprisal for the bombing of a 
synagogue in Istanbul earlier 
this month, which was blamed 
on the radical Abu Nidal 
group. Nor does it seem to 
have anything to do with the 
current tension along the 
Lebanese border, which is 
claimed here to be caused by 
Shia militia. 

The attack is more likely to 
be part of the Israeli policy 
laid down by Mr Yitzhak 
Rabin, the Defence Minister, 
of attacking suspected terror- 
ist bases “anywhere and at any 

time”. . . . 

It is noteworthy that the 
official statement confirming 
the raid went out of its way to 
emphasize that no civilians 
should have been involved. 
This follows strong criticism 
of Israel for earlier raids in 
which civilians have been 
killed, even though the targets 
involved have been described 
as terrorist bases.

Mr Scargill had entered the 
talks, the first between coal 
industry management and 
union leaders for nearly two 
years, seeking back-dated pay 
increases of £350 for 65,000 of 
his members who stayed out 
on strike during the year-long 
miners' dispute. 

The men have been given 
the pay increase, which 
amounts to £8 more a week 1 
backdated to September 1, but 
miners who defied the strike 
call have had their rise back- 
dated to November 1985. 

British Coal has decided to 
withhold the money to make 
up for pension fund contribu- 
tions that strikers did not pay 
during the year-long dispute. 

The pay issue has already 
resulted in an overtime ban by 
South Wales miners for the 
past seven weeks. 

Mr ScargtiPs two other key 
demands were the reinstate- 
ment of 460 workers, sacked 
during the miners* strike, and

US system likely 
to defeat Nimrod 

By Michael Evans, Whitehall Correspondent 

The crucial political choice 
of Britain's airborne early 
warning system has now been 
narrowed down to two op- 
tions. the British Nimrod and 
the American AW AC. 

There is now a growing feel- 
ing in Whitehall that the Gov- 
ernment may be forced to buy 
the Boeing aircraft and scrap 
Nimrod, which has already 
cost .about £900 million of 
taxpayers' money. 

Mr George Younger, the 
Defence Secretary, is studying 
the findings of the Ministry of 
Defence Equipment Procure- 
ment Committee, which has 
drawn up a list of options. 

Chaired by Lord Trcfgame, 
Minister of Defence Procure- 
ment. the committee is under- 
stood to have reduced the list 
of seven tenderers to three. 

The third is the proposal by 
Gruman. the American firm, 
to use Nimrod airframes but 
install its radar, which is used 
in the Haw key e aircraft. It has 

become known as the 
Hawkrod option. 

But senior Whitehall 
sources insist that the only two 
options really on the table are 
Nimrod and AW AC. 

No decision will be taken 
until it has been fully aired in 
Cabinet, but the Prime Min- 
ister and Mr Younger have 
decided there must be only 
one issue at stake: will the 
system work according to 
RAF specifications? 

Whitehall sources said yes- 
terday that Mrs Thatcher 
would be looking at the op- 
tions in a practical way and 
would not be emotionally tied 
to the British Nimrod system, 
which has still nol resolved all 
its technical problems. 

In older to pay for the 
hugely expensive Bc>eing air- 
craft. savings will have to be 
made in the budgets of one of 
the three Services or the 
Treasury will have to find the 
extra cash.

night stepped into the dispute 
over the Football League's 
decision to expel Luton Town 
from the Liulewoods' Cup 
because of the first division 
club's moves to stamp out

Mrs Thatcher said she was 
“deeply concerned" at the 
league's derision. 

Mr Richard Tracey, the 
Minister for Sport, will bring 
forward a scheduled meeting 
with football officials to try to 
persuade the eague to change 
its mind.

Baker pledges 
cash to save 

Bv Mark Dowd. Education Reporter 

Mr Kenneth Baker, the 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion. yesterday pledged that no 
universities would be forced 
to close because of lack of 
cash, but called for a bigger 
private role in funding higher 

Addressing university vice- 
chancellors in Edinburgh. Mr 
Baker gave the most un- 
equivocal indication to date of 
ihe Government’s suspected 
support for a mixed system of 
loans and grams to replace the 
means-tested system for stu- 
dent maintenance which costs 
ihe Government more than 
£500 million a year. 

“We need to find new ways 
of financing higher education 
lo avoid adding to the burdens 
of the taxpayer and the 
ratepayer," he said. One way 
would’ be for employers to 
sponsor students who took out 

.Asking why students should 
not make a real contribution 
, io their support, he said that a 
mixed system would be “more 
! equitable" giving siudems a 
degree of independence more 
appropriate to ihcirage. 

“And it would be a real test 
of motivation and maturity, 
forcing them to think through 
the economic consequences of 
their choices." 

The system of student 
grants and maintenance is 
bring reviewed by the Par- 
liamentary Undcr-Sccretary 
of State for Education and 
Science. Mr George Walden,

pected in the new year. 

However. Mr Baker says he 
expects an “incisive" reply 
from vice-chancellors on 
loans. After years of oppo- 
sition to any scheme involving 
loans, it is predicted that they 
will signal their conversion lo 
a system more in line wiih Mr 
Baker's way of thinking, per- 
haps before the end of their 
meeting tomorrow. 

Mr Baker's no-closure guar- 
antee will end speculation 
about the future of univer- 
sities such as Stirling. Al- 
though Mr Baker assured the 
meeting that the question of 
extra fending for universities 
was high on the agenda he 
asked for patience for a few.

However. Mr Baker was not

more mature students and 
projects such as the one at 
Exeter, which welcomed 
young A-le>cl students on 
residential courses, giving an 
early taste ofum versify life. 

“You will have to sell 
yourselves to a new clientele 
and not just wail for the A

ing on your door. You must be

ing at the target figures from 
Z the international point of 
\ view." 

Mr Kendall, the fust uon- 
„ JFVenchman appointed Sec- 

retary General of Interpol 
since it was reconstituted after 
World War Two, is familiar 
with terrorist tactics. 

The tall, powerfoUy-bmJt 
marksman - he is a crack shot 
with a pistol - spent seven 
years tracking spies and politi- 
cal extremists in the Special 

But he is under no illusions 
about the difficulties of tack- 
ling the new breed of ruthless 
kilters, actively supported by 
some governments, operating 
across national borders. 

Interpol, grouping 138 
states, formally entered the 
battle against ter rorism test 
October when its general 
assembly in Washington clari- 
fied an article m its constitu- 
tion which had prohibited 
intervention la political, re- 
ligions, military of racial mat- 
ters, and decided to set up a 
specialist unit 

Further progress is expected 
at the forthcoming general 
assembly in Yugoslavia. 

Mr Kendall believes the 
vast amount of information! 
gathered by secret agents is 
not being circulated among 
police and other security 
forces the way it should be. 

“When a known terrorist b 
identified, there should be an 
obligation to inform those in 
the front line, that is to say the 

The Interpol chief was 
particularly annoyed when he 
read a report in a French 
newspaper test Sunday that 
Israel had recently passed the 
names and photographs of 
several suspected terrorists to 
the French secret services. 

“That was the first K knew 
about it If it is true, why did 
they do It only recently? And 
why did they give the informa- 
tion only to France?” 

Mr ifpndall is also dis- 
turbed by proposals, particu- 
larly in Europe, to- establish 
mul tilatera l secretariats to 
combat terrorism. 

“Creating new structures on 
a restricted geographical basis 
is not necessarily conducive to 
achieving the best results. 

On the political level, 
greater efforts should be made 
to suppress terrorism though 
dialogue rather than retal- 
iatory strikes, he said. 

But despite the horrific 
images of terrorist outrages, 
Mr Kendall bdfeves people 
should not be unduly alarmed. 

Nevertheless, Interpol has 
good reason to treat the mot- 
ace seriously. French para- 
military police guard its 
headquarters and workmen 
are repairing extensive dam- 
age to the mound floor caused 
by Action Directe who shot a 
guard and bombed the Indu-

yesterday signed “a bench-

a new benchmark." 

The Daily Telegraph, which 
plans to start printing on 
Sunday night at its new £75

has been negotiating with its

Labour pledge 
on drugs 
firms’ profits 

By Sheila Gunn 

A future Labour Govern- 
ment was pledged yesterday 
to bring in tight controls on 
the profits of drug companies 
from sales to the National 
Health Service. 

Mr Michael Meacher, 
Labour’s chief health spokes- 
man said the companies' 
activities would be closely 
scrutinized, and full informa- 
tion on company costs de- 
manded. before setting profit 

He was condemning the 
Government’s relaxation on 
the profits of pharmaceutical 
companies from October 1. 
which will end a three-year 
profit-restricting arrangement 
between the Department of 
Health and Social Security 
and the companies. 

“It is a national disgrace 
that this Government is 
colluding with the drugs in- 
dustry to increase further their 
substantia] profits,” he said. 

“Mr Norman Fowler's de- 
cision to increase drug com- 
pany profits marks the end of 
any attempt to curb the

Prison reforms 

Labour aim to cut crowding 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 

A Labour government 
would drastically reduce the 
number of inmates in 
Britain's overcrowded prisons 
and prevent courts from 
imposing custodial sentences 
on some criminals, Mr Clive 
Soley, a front bench spokes- 
man on law and order said last 

The radical reform of foe 
penal system was immediately 
condemned by Mr David 
Mellor, Minister of State at 
the Home Office, who said it 
showed “scant regard for the 
safety of foe public or the 
independence of the 

Mr Soley told a Howard 
League conference in OxfonL- 
“The key to prison reform is, 
and must be, to reduce 

He set outa number of ways 
of letting people out of jap and 
reducing foe numbers going to 
prison in foe first place. 

In an attempt to reduce the 
overcrowding in prisons, Mr 
Soley advocates introducing a 
conditional release scheme, 
already used in Northern Ire- 
land, whereby most prisoners 
on good behaviour serve only 
half their sentence. He also 
favours foe Home Secretary 
being able to release groups of 
individual inmates at any 

“These schemes would only 
apply to those offenders who 
were not a danger to the 
public," he insisted. 

Other measures would in- 
dude: extra statutory restric- 
tions on the use of 
imprisonment, reduced prison 
' sentences for less serious 
offenders, a big increase in foe 
use of bail, increased use of 
compensation as a punish- 
ment, and finding alternatives 
to prison for fine defaulters, 
such as community service 

“These and other measures 
should result in a significant 
drop in foe prison population 
and we would foe be able to 
embark on a major restructur- 
ing of foe prison service," Mr 
Soley said. 

Tne prison population in 
England and Wales test week 
totalled 46,780. 

- Mr Soley told the 
conference:“The faults in the 
present system are glaringly 
obvious. We send more peo- 
ple to prison than any country 
in Western Europe and we 
have had serious riots in a 
grossly overcrowded system." 

But last night Mr Mellor 
attacked the Labour plan. He 
said: “The real priority is the 
safety of foe public and foe 
protection of foe right of the 
courts in the public interest to 
sentence as they think best” 

• Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, admitted 
yesterday that Britain's pris- 
ons faced problems of 
overcrowding, inadequate 
facilities, restricted regimes 
and inefficient working 

But he told foe National 
Association of Chief Prison 
Officers in Loughborough. 
Leicestershire, that while foe 
difficulties were massive they 
were not new, and he outlined 
the Government's three- 
pronged strategy for. dealing 
with foe crisis. 

He wants to contain and 
reduce demand for prison 
space by encouraging alter- 
natives to custody for minor 
non-violent offenders, 
toincrease resources for the 
probation service, to improve 
foe use and enforcement of 
fines, and to reduce the num- 
ber of remand prisoners. 

Mr Hurd said foe Govern- 
ment was improving prison 
buildings, manpower and re- 
sources. The largest pro- 
gramme of prison building 
and refurbishment since foe 
Victorian era was under way. 
Three new prisons had been 
opened last year, six more 
would be completed by the 
end of the decade, and nine 
more were planned; creating 
9,400 new places. 

Tax plan 


By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

The Equal Opportunities 
Commission has come out 
against the Government's pro- 
posals for reforming income 

The plans to switch to fully 
transferable income tax allow- 
ances, contained in a Green 
Paper published in March, has 
big flaws, the commission said 
in a response published 

“The proposed tax system is 

: proposed tax sj 
not truly independent, does 
not encourage privacy be- 
tween spouses, is extremely 
complex and will .discourage 
married women seeking 
work”, foe response said. 

Mr Anatoly Shcharansky with Mrs Thatcher at 10 Downing 
Street yesterday. 

Shcharansky pleads 
case of Soviet Jews 

It calls instead for com- 
pletely independent taxation 
and increased child benefit, an 
idea that has been urged by 
other organizations, including 
foe Institute for Fiscal Studies. 

Anatoly Shcharansky, foe 
freed Soviet dissident, yes- 
terday appealed to' Mrs 
Thatcher to keep the problems 
of Jews trapped in Russia at 
the top of the political agenda. 

After a 30- minute meeting 
at Downing Street, the Rus- 
sian declared be was very 
happy with the British 
Government's stand. Mrs 
Thatcher was a “very good 
friend of Soviet Jews”, he said. 

Mr Shcharansky, who spent 
nine years as a prisoner of the 
KGB, praised Mrs Thatcher 
for being actively Involved in a 
campaign of quiet diplomacy 
to secure his release. 

“I was satisfied to bear that 
Britain's policy on human 
rights towards Soviet Jews 
who wished to emigrate will be 
high on foe agenda in the next 
round of talks on foe Helsinki 
agreement" be said. 

“I chink Mrs Thatcher Is 
doing a very good job.” 

Mr. Shcharansky, who ft on 
a whistle-stop tonr of Euro- 
pean capitals, pleading the 
case of Soviet ' Jewry, said it 
was essential that in talks on 
the Helsinki agreement in 
Vienna that the West did not 
allow Moscow to divorce the 
issue of their Jewish popula- 
tion from other human rights 

The commission said such a 
form of taxation was indepen- 
dent. non-discrirainatoty with 
regard to sex and marital 
status, gave individuals pri- 
vacy over their tax affairs and 
provided assistance to fam- 
ilies whose need was greatest. 

There is no tax penalty for 
married women returning to 
work after having children, as 
in the Government’s plan. 

The commission said that 
of foe 2.772 tax complaints 
received in the ten years of its 
existence, the majority had 
been on the unfair tax treat- 
ment of married women. The 
reform plans would not re- 
move such objections, the 
commission concluded. 

Drugs battle 

Britain urges European crackdown 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 

Britain is taking urgent 
action to persuade its EEC 
partners to step up the battle 
against foe worldwide net- 
work of heroin and cocaine 
dealers, it was revealed last 

pouring in from South Atner- 

tng m h 

ica ana Pakistan. 


day after a senior 
Scotland Yard officer dis- 
closed that drug traffickers' 
profits in Britain were ex- 
pected to reach £600 million 
this year, and the Home 
Secretary likened foe hard 
drug industry to the slave 
trade, it emerged ministers are 
planning a series of top-level 
meetings with their European 
counterparts to uy to reduce 
the quantity of hard drugs 

Mr David Mellor, foe 
Home Office Minister in 
charge of foe Government’s 
campaign against drugs, will 
address foe European Par- 
liament in Strasbourg next 
month where he will urge the 
rest of foe SEC to strengthen 
foeir efforts to stop foe 
production of cocaine. 

In particular, he wants EEC 
countries to ensure that foeir 
agricultural aid programmes 
do not help finance peasant 
farmers growing cocaine in 
countries like Bolivia. 

Next January. Mr Mellor 
will chair a conference of foe 

Pompidou group of ministers 
and uy to get agreement for 
European-wide seizure of foe 
assets of drug barons, white 
next month a meeting of 
European interior ministers 
will fake place in London. 

In the meantime, Britain is 
pressing for a UN convention 
which would make drug traf- 
ficking an international of- 
fence. A draft convention has 
recently been circulated and a 
meeting will be beld in Vienna 
in February in an attempt to 
reach final agreement. 

Mr Mellor. who recently 

completed a lour of Soi 
American countries which 
produce cocaine, told The 

Times last nighc“7 believe foe 
time is right for a more 
concerted approach with our 
partners in Europe. 

“I will take the opportunity 
when speaking to foe Euro- 
pean Parliament to emphasise 
this with even more vigour, 
having seen foe situation in 
South America.” 

The DHSS is assembling a 
team of experts who will tour 
Britain to check how district 
health authorities are tackling 
drug misuse in their areas.

drugs out of Europe. 

Tunnel ‘a 
threat to 


By Martin Fletcher 

itical Reporter 

The Channel Tunnel would 
lead to redundancies in the 
ferry industry, further decline 
in Britain's merchant fleet, 
and the run-down or closure 
of many south and east coast 
ports, the MPs select commit- 
tee on the Channel Tunnel Bill 
was told yesterday. 

Meanwhile Britain's largest 
transport union, the Trans- 
port and General Workers 
Union said its members in the 

road haulage industry might 

boycott foe rail tun: 

The union is opposed to the 
£3 billion project, which it 
claims is unnecessary, a threat 
to jobs and a potential waste 

of money. It is also concerned 
about foe 

safety and legal 
aspects of drivers remaining 
in their cabs while in foe rati 

“There are precedents for 
the union, on behalf of its 
members, recommending a 
boycott of regulations and 
facilities when we are unhappy 
about them", Mr Regan Scott, 
foe union's national research 
secretary, said yesterday. 

“1 think it would be per- 
fectly legitimate for foe union 
to express concern about driv- 
ers being told to use the tunnel 
by employers.” 

Mr Frank Neve, an export 
consultant, told the commit- 
tee on its final day of hearings 
that hauliers would forsake 
the ferries for foe .tunnel, and 
that this would be disastrous 
for ports as far apart as Hull 
and Bristol. 

Mr Iain Donaldson, a 
Townsend Thoresen emplo- 
yee. representing more than 
700 petitioners, said heavy 
competition between the ferry 
companies and foe tunnel 
would “reduce their labour 
costs and the quality of ser- 
vices would decline until one 
or other went out ofbusiness". 

Mr Alex Fletcher, the 
committee chairman, said foe 
committee would do its ut- 
most to ensure that com- 
petition between foe ferries 
and foe tunnel was fair. “If 
there is fair .competition I 
venture to suggest that there 
will not be foe very great 
amount of distress talked 
about here today", be said. 

Petitioners daimed that foe 
ferries had to adhere to much 
stricter safety regulations than 
foe rail . tunnel. Mr John 
Drinkwaier, QC, representing 
foe Euro-Tunnel consortium, 
said h would be “financially 
disas trous" if safety arrange- 
ments for passengers sta

Law urged 
to regulate 
car dealers 

By Robin Young 

Most car traders mislead 
buyers about the roadworthi- 
ness of cars they sell, the 
Institute of Trading Standards 
Administration (ITSA) 
claimed yesterday. 

After an Office of Fair 
Trading review of the motor 
industry's code of practice, the 
institute claimed that it had 
consistently foiled to regulate 
its members. The industry 
should be made subject to “a 
powerful new law to keep 
garages in order”; 

While Sir Gordon Borne, 
the Director-General of Fair 
Trading, concluded that the 
code had brought benefits but 
still left room for improve- 
ment, ITS A, the organization 
of local authority officers in 
charge of consumer protec- 
tion, claimed that its latest 
spot checks and the OFTs 
own findings proved that self- 
regulation in the motor trade 
was "a force”. 

The motor code came into 
force in 1976 but the latest 
OFT survey carried out in 65 
towns still revealed a high 
degree of non-compliance. 

Only a fifth of the members 
of the motor trade associ- 
ations supporting the code 
even claimed to show pre- 
sales inspection reports, 
detailing the condition of used 
cans on offer, as die code 
requires. More than half 
admitted that they did not 
always give customers a copy 
of the checklist before 

None of the customers 
interviewed by the OFT who 
had complained about a new 
car had been told about their 
right under the code to refer 
their complaint to a trade 

The OFT says that over the 
next few mouths it will be 
discussing with the three trade 
associations means of 
strengthening the code. 

ITSA yesterday sa id that in 
Humberside only 16 per cent 
of traders were displaying the 
3greed checklists. 

By a Staff Reporter 

school books fell by 22 J 2 per 
cent between 1979 and 1985. 

“In these circumstances, is 
it any wonder that commer- 
cial sponsors find Schools so 
eager to snap up their free, or 
heavily subsidized education 
materials?” she said. 

The report proposes: 

• An enforceable code of 
practice to regulate produc- 
tion and distribution of 
materials. Current voluntary 
codes produced by commerce 
were not being adhered to. 

• A checklist so teachers can 
evaluate accuracy and bias 
before educational aids are 
accepted for classroom use. 

• The creation of a national 
WhicK?-Tfpe guide with an 
independent assessment rat- 
ing for each hem.

Call for Lords to 
review curriculum 

A special House of Lords 
committee charged with 
reviewing the school curricu- 
lum for 16-18 year olds was 
proposed yesterday by the 
chairman of the Headmasters' 
Conference, Mr Christopher 

Mr Everett, headmaster of 
Tonbridge School, Kent, was 
Speaking in Leeds to the 200 
member beads of independent 
schools who were gathered for 
their annual meeting. 

Echoing his support for the 
paper published by university 

vice-chancellors - earlier this 
year, which gave a warning 
against the dangers of over- 
specialization at the ‘A* level 
stage, he said: “There .is 
agreement that from 11 to 16 
aD our pupils need to pursue 
die broadest possible curricu- 

“The need for greater 
breadth beyond those years 
may be controversial, but 
there is little in our perfor- 
mance as a nation which 
suggests we can be light- 
heartedly out of step with our 

A welcome start had been 
made with the AS level 
examinations, which would, 
for example, allow a pupD 
pursuing mainly sciences to 
also include a humanities 

However, an authoritative 
review was necessary, and he 
suggested a Lords committee 1 
along the lines of the recent I 
committee on industry and 
overseas trade should carry 
but the task. 

Part of the clue to .Britain’s 
decline, he said, has been the 
emphasis which schools had 
placed on character and tem- 
perament in place of a more 
formal system of training and 
academic education. 

For decades, schools and 
their programmes had re- 
mained the same, but . be

L-plate ‘cowboys’ 
to be outlawed 

By Nicholas Beeston 

Mr Peter Bottom !ey, Min- 1 
ister for Roads and Traffic,- 
yesterday unveiled new laws 
to curb cowboy driving 
instructors and protect 
Britain’s 33 million learner- 

From September 30 all 
qualified driving instructors 
and trainees will be required 
to display certificates from the 
Department of Transport in 
their car windscreens proving 
they are qualified to teach. 

A green octagonal-shaped 
disc would indicate that the 
instructor is fully qualified 
and has passed a three-part 
examination. A pink trian--* 
gular certificate will show that 
the teacher is a trainee and has 
six months to qualify. 

Both documents require a 
photograph of the instructor. 

If foe car does not carry foe 
certificate, it could mean the 
instructor is charging for driv- 
ing lessons illegally and could 
be fined. 

Mr Bottomley said that in 
future if a learner-driver does 
not see either certificate he

New computer 
helps child 
murders hunt 

By Mkbael Horsaell 

Police investigating three 1 
child murder cases announced 
new mows yesterday to help 
ascertain whether a single 
killer was responsible. 

The recently introduced 
Home Office computer sys- 
tem will be brought in to help 
detectives solve the murders 
of Susan Maxwell, aged 11, 
Caroline Hogg, aged five, and 
Sarah Harper, aged 10. 

The information collected 
by detectives will be fed into 
foe computer, called Holmes. 

The Home Office said: 
“The computer allows for 
immediate cross-references 
and picks out words and 
names which a policeman 
looking for a .link might miss”. 

Mr Charles McLachlan, 
Chief Constable of Not- 
tinghamshire, said: “We now 
fed that these murders could 
be by foe same man. One man 
may be respansble but it 
would be quite wrong to 
assume that we have a mur- 
derer at large killing children”. 

Susan Maxwell vanished 
near her home in ComhiJJ-on- 
Tweed, Northumbria, in July, 
1982. Her body was found 13 
days later on foe A5I8 be- 
1 tween Uuoxeter and Stafford.

There are 29,000 fully quali- 
fied instructors and 1,200 
trainees in Britain. The 
Department Of Transport said, 
that foe new law would protect 
them as well as 1.8 million 
learner-drivers who take their 
driving tests each year. 

Only 49 per cent passed 
tests last year and foe depart- 
ment said the new regulations 
should improve the standard 
of training and foe pass rate. 
The system will also mean 
that learners can demand 
cheaper driving rates from 
trainee instructors.

Non-nuclear Nato defence policy sought 

Loud cheering and thunder- 
ous applause greeted the nar- 
row decision at the Liberal 
Party assembly at Eastbourne 
yesterday that the defence 
capability of the European 
pillar of Nato must be non- 

A a and-fludear amend- 
ment to a motion on the 
Alliance joint commission re- 
port on defence and disarma- 
ment was carried try 652 votes 
to 625 - majority, 27. 

The conference thus re- 

jected the views of the party 
leadership put to it by its 

defence spokesman, Mr Jim 
Wallace, MP for Orkney and 
Shetland, and Mr Malcolm 
Bruce, MP for Gordon, and 
upheld those voiced by Mr 
Michael Meadoweroft, MPfor 
Leeds West, and Mr Simon 
Hughes. MP for Southwark 
and Bermondsey. 

Supporters of the anti- 
nuclear posture reminded the 
assembly of the long Liberal 
stance against nuclear weap- 
ons and maintained that that 
principle should not be be- 
trayed in the negotiations that 
must go on with the Social 
Democrats in the search for an 
agreed Alliance policy on 

The assembly also earned 
overwhelmingly on a show of 
hands another amendment 
instructing the party's policy 
committee to use the motion 
together with relevant resolu- 
tions at the 1984 and 1985 
assemblies as the basis of 
-Liberal policy in negotiations 
with the SDP about Alliance 
policy at the not election. 

In moving the resolution, 
Mr Jim Wallace, the Liberal 
defence spokesman and MP 
for Orkney and Shetland, said 
the twin themes of the Alli- 
ance commission report on 
defence and disarmament, 
•vere collective security and 
common security, the former 
achieved through participa- 
tion in Nato and the creation 
of a stronger European pillar 
within the Atlantic Alliance, 
and the latter to be sought on a 
worldwide basis. 

So much had been said or 
written over recent weeks 
about the nuclear element m 
European defence, that other 
important aspects of Euro- 
pean cooperation in defence 
matters had been overlooked. 
Much more might be achieved 
by Europe working together, 
not least in disarmament. 

If the commission agonized 
over whether Polaris should 
be replaced, there was no 
doubt that Polaris must be 
deployed as a European 
contribution to Nato's deter- 
rent They saw no credible 

future for the British indepen- 
dent nuclear deterrent. 

If the anti-nuclear amend- 
ment was passed, the assem- 
bly would be rejecting that key 
and carefully constructed pro- 
posal of the joint commission 
report, and so he could not 
support the amendment 

“We would be foreclosing 
one possible and important 
option and render pointless 
the initiative with our Euro- 
pean allies which David Steel 
and David Owen decided to 
pursue. Thai initiative is not 
an attempt to put together a 
third super power, rather h 

offers the clear possibility of a 
reduction of the existing levels 
of nuclear weapons.” 

Mr John Smithson, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Huddersfield, moving the 
anti-nuclear amendment, said 
the party had always been 
against an independent 
nuclear deterrent and they 

The main points of the 
amended motion on defence 
and disarmament carried by 
the Liberal assembly yes- 
terday are: 

O This assembly believes that 
credible pottdes for defence and 
disarmament mast be based oa 
the key principles of collective 
security- with the creation of a 
stronger “European pillar” 
within Nato. 

• Assembly welcomes the Alli- 
ance Joint Commission report 
on Defence and Disarmament. 
Conunissioa proposals recom- 
mended for incorporation in the 
Alliance joint Programme for 
Government include cancefla- 
tion of die purchase of Trident, 
inclusion of Polaris in arms 
control negotiations; and initia- 
tion of a moratorium on farther 
deployment of inte r med iat e 
endear weapons. 

• Assembly ins tru cts the Stand- 
ing Committee to use this motion 
together with the relevant 
resolutions of the J9S4 and 1985 
assemblies as the basis of 
Liberal policy on Defence and 
Disarmament In negotiations 
with the SDP on the Affiance 
Joint programme. 

could not betray that fun- 
damental principle. They 
must scotch the view that an 
independent European deter- 
rent was different from an 
independent British deterrent 
Indeed it would be an 
Anglo-French deterrent. The 
French had always insisted on 
being totally independent and 
had even left Nato. Those 
were not attractive creden- 
tials. An Anglo-French deter- 
rent would emphasize 
differences within Europe; 
there would be increasing 
tensions. They wanted politi- 
cal strength not nuclear anns- 

strength. They should pass the 
amendment and set the 
Liberal Party on the true road 
to peace and disarmament 

Mr Leighton Andrews, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Gillingham, moved the 
amendment to add at the end 
Of the resolution the instruc- 
tion to the policy committee 
to use the resolution as the 
basis of Liberal policy on 
defence and disarmament in 
negotiations with the SDP. 

' He said the row over the 
nuclear deterrent had drawn 
attention away from their aim 
to scrap Trident and build up 
conventional strength. They 
wanted agreed meaningful 
policy at the next election but 
the issue of a European mini- 
mum deterrent was something 
that had never been folly 
worked out and explained to 
the assembly. 

The key element to put in 
negotiations with die SDP was 
that while defence technology 
might change, the values and 
principles that underlay 
Liberal policy did not. Their 
1984 policy meant they would 
phase out Polaris. They 
should not see it interpreted in 
any other way. 

Miss Frances Thnriway, of 
the Young Liberals, said no 
one could claim the motion 
was in tine with liberal de- 
fence policy; its substance 
represented a major change. 
They were being blackmailed 
by the threat of electoral 

Mr Brian May, Chelsea, 
opposing the motion, said it 
did not mean the SDP leader- 
ship had changed its mind 
since it rejected Paddy 
Ashdown's call for a freeze at 
Torquay last year. It was 
absolutely certain the SOT 
would suck to existing plans 
to deploy Cruise at Moles- 
worth unless the United Stares 
decided otherwise: 

There was no firm commit- 
ment in this report to prevent 
anyone from saying in the 
future when more of the 
Trident money had been 
spent we may as well keep it 
The option at Torquay re- 
mained intact — a deal includ- 
ing Trident could be struck 
with the Conservatives and 

nuclear amendment which he 
described as dangerous. There 
was some hissing and booing 
from the audience when he 
said conventional defence 
could never be an effective 
deterrent. _ ‘ 

Mr Baddy Ashdown, MP 
for Yeovil, said in opposing 
the first amendment “Let me 
be blunt, I do not think we 
can, or frankly that we should, 
use European cooperation as 
an instrument to create a new 

generation of European deter-

They were dithering with a

Mr Viv Bingham, par- 
liamentary candidate for West 
Derbyshire, former liberal 
President and a vice-chairman 
of CND, said the commission 

for hope. 

AD he pleaded for was the 
addition of a few words, in the 
amendment calling for non- 
nuclear defence, which would 
give a little bit more hope to 
the people of this country as 
well as to die people of this 
party and the Alliance, more

Could anyone describe uni- 
lateralism as a danger to the 
electoral chances of the Alli- 
ance after the Newcastle-* 
under-Lyme by-election? 

Mr Richard Ryder, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Teignbrtdge, opposed the non- 

inga European policy in Nato, 
would only be on the basis of 
non-nuclear defence. That 
might not be what those 
moving the amendment in- 
tended but it was the effect of 
the wording and that would be 
the interpretation put on it 
outside the conference halL 

ft could only and 

possibly destroy further dis- 
cussion between the Altiance 
leaders and the French and yet 
those discussions could lead to 
a cordinated policy that would 
reduce nuclear weapons. 

“It is the job of the Liberal 
Party to take every possible 
step we have presented to us 
that mire* a step forward on 
disarmament (for discussions 
with the French on current 
nudear forces presents this 
opportunity. It is the job of the 
Party to open doors. Do not 
slam them by passing this 
amendment, he said.” 

Mr Simon Hughes, MP for 
Southwark and Bermondsey, 
drew prolonged applause after 
supporting the anti-nuclear 
amendment. This would not 
predude discussions about 
any other matter in either the 
short or medium term. 

Mr Mkhmd Meadoweroft, 
MP for Leeds West, said die 
party was in the business of 
coalition and he looked for- 
ward to a joint programme in 
five years time. But the Con- 
ference was to deride Liberal 
policy and that policy should 
be rooted in Liberal values 
and intellectually sustainable. 
The argument against the non- 
nuclear amendment foiled on 
both counts. 

If there was to be a mini- 
mum deterrent in case the 
Americans abandoned us it 
had to be said that Europe 
should become a super-power 
and that was a precarious and 
dangerous proposition in the 
face of existing 'problems in 
central Europe. • 



anger at 

By Phflip Webster 
Chief Political 

An embarrassed Mr David 
Steel yesterday accused the 
South African ambassador of 
“cheek” and undiplomatic 
behaviour over a letter sent to 
delegates at the assembly 
disclosing that Mr Steel is to 
pay a visit soon to South 

Mr Denis Worrall wrote to 
Liberals setting out the South 
African case on sanctions, 
despite the furore over a 
similar letter sent to SDP 
lies in Harrogate last 

But what particularly upset 
Mr Sted was the disclosure by 
Mr Worrall that Mr Sted is to 
go to South Africa next 
month, and his claim, based 
on discussions with the 
Liberal leader, that he under- 
stood the South African 
government's view that there 
was no rapid solution to the 
South Africa crisis. 

The letter, posted to dele- 
gates at their Eastbourne ho- 
tels, led Mr Sted swiftly to put 
out a statement giving details 
of his fact-finding tour as the 
guest of the University of 
Cape Town. 

He said that he had not yet 
publicized it because his pro- 
gramme was not yet complete. 
He is awaitingareply from Mr 
Worrall to his request to be 
allowed to visit Nelson 
Mandela in prison. 

In his letter to delegates Mr 
Worrall referred to the row 
over bis action at the SDP 
conference last week but 
added that diplomats had a 
duty to present their govern- 
ments point of view. 

He wrote: “I know that your 
leader recognizes that im- 
portant changes have taken 
place. In fact South Africa has 
advanced for towards creating 
a society in which social and 
economic opportunities are 
open to all - regardless of 

He added: “There are no 
quick-fix solutions 

In his statement Mr Steel 
saidTlt is cheeky for the South 
African ambassador to send 
fetters to our assembly dele- 
gates. He seems to have 
learned nothing from the 
roasting the SDP gave him for 
doing the same thing; but it is 
even more astonishing that be 
should use this unsolicited 
circular to announce my visit 
to South Africa before I have 
done so myself.” 


Talks with Thatcher ‘out of order’ 

A standing ovation greeted 
the declaration by Mr David 
Alton, MP for Mossley Hffi 
and Liberal Chief Whip, that 
the liberal Party “would not 
treat” with Mrs Thatcher in 
the event of a hung 

It would insist that Mbs 
Thatcher was despatched to 
Dulwich the moment the gen- 
eral election was over, he said. 

His was foe keynote speech 
in a debate under foe theme 
“After the General Election” 
at foe aid of which foe Liberal 
assembly canted a resolution 
setting out die guidelines 
which Liberal MPs with their 
SDP colleagues should follow 
in negotiations with other 
political parties in the event <rf 
a balanced Parliament. 

The resolution called for 
maximum possible implemen- 
tation of Alliance policies, 
negotiations over ministerial 
positions mily when satisfac- 
tory arrangements over work- 
ing practices and polices had 
been readied* 

It also stated that negotia- 
tions should be conducted 
through a negotiating team 
comprising Mr Steel and Dr 
Owen and representatives 
elected by foe two par- 
liamentary parties. 

Mr Alton said he wanted to. 
dispel the myth that after the 
election foe Liberals and So- 
da) Democrats would go their 
separate ways. The Alliance 
was strong and true. 

They would not barter for 
Cabinet seats and ministerial 
limousines in return for drop- 
ping things like electoral re- 
form. Without electoral 
reform, any temporary deal 
spatchcocked together would 
be a gross betrayal and would 
not be worth a candle. 

Another myth was that foe 
other parties would never 
negotiate with them. That was 

CouncOkr Margaret Clay, 
parliamentary candidate for 
Leeds East and general sec- 
retary of the Association of 
Liberal Councillors, said they 
aimed to win the next election 
hot they had to face the 
possibility that no overall 
control could be the outcome. 

Even with this, the task 
would be the same— to 
achieve maximum im- 
plementation of Alliance 

They must insist in a bal- 
anced Farfiament that any- 
thing was posable and that all 

the old conventions were up for 
negotiation. “We will not be 
bought off lightly. The argu- 
ment is about which party or 
parties are prepared to sit 
down and negotiate seriously 
about Affiance policy. 

Mr John Bryant, par- 
liamentary candidate far Bev- 
erley and leader of the Liberal 
group <u Humberside Comity 
Council, a balance contil, 
said radical changes hi par- 
liamentary procedure would be 
demanded by Affiance MPs 
who had had direct experience 
of open local government 

Mr Richard Carden, can- 
didate for Norfolk South, 
thought the motion was too 
late and too cautions. It ra- 
dicated the contmmng exis- 
tence of two separate 
partiaraentary parties. 

Councillor Andrew 
didate for 

foe motion, said they 
not tailor their proposals 
ply to what they thought 
Conservative or Labour back- 
benchers would vote for. 

Mr Garin Grant; par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Southend West, warned that, 
they were setting their sights 
for too low. 

They were interested in only 
one thing' at foe next general 
election and that was not a 
lung, parliament, it 

was victory for the Affiance. 

The Affiance would not 
stand by and be blackmailed 
and railroaded into a Queen's 
speech it had not agreed. It 
would vote against it and bring 
about a second election 

He was concerned that parts 
of tills motion might be inter- 
preted as showing a lack of 
trast in the leadership of foe 
two Davids 

Councillor David Heath, 
leader of Somerset County 
Coancfl, winding ap foe de- 
bate, said foe motion did not 
seek to restrain the flexibility 
of the leadership or par- 
liamentary party after foe next 
general election. 

It was, however, essential to 
set out foe bottom line without 
which they would not co- 
operate with the other parties. 

They were prepared to vote 
against the Queen's speech, 
which was gteng to be very 
difficult for newly elected MPs 
who must have that courage. 
They would vote themselves 
out of office because that was 
what foe country would need. 


International year of aid welcomed 

The programme “Cathy 
Come Horae” bad shocked 
the nation 20 years ago with 
its revelations of foe problems 
of foe homeless; today she still 
had to come home, Mr Mark 
Hayes, parliamentary can- 
didate for Saffron Walden, 

He was, successfully, 
proposing a motion welcom- 
ing foe declaration of 1987 as 
International Year of Shelter 
for the Homeless. 

Mr Hayes said that despite 
;r knowledge of the prob- 
foe plight of foe home- 

less continued to grow. The 
number accepted as homeless 
had doubled between 1978 
and 1 985-Housing cuts meant 
that even those accepted did 
not get adequate housing but 
had to make do with bed and 
breakfast accommodation. 

The horrendous size of foe 
problem was illustrated by foe 
ever increasing number of 
single people living rough, in 
foe streets of our dties,and in 
foe fields in rural areas. 

The Conservative answer 
was cruel changes to the 
benefit regulations which 

forced young people to move 
from town to town. 

Next year would provide an 
unparalleled opportunity to 
campaign for a change in 
policy with more money to be 
invested in new property in 
both public and private sec- 
tors and more done to 
encourage private rented 
accommodation-To loud ap- 
plause he concluded: "“Our 
message must be clear, 'Cathy, 
it is time you had a home’.” 

Mr Stephen ConnoDy, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Derby North, said he had to 

oppose the proposal, not be- 
cause he was against the 
International Year, but be- 
cause foe motion did not offer 
active support 
It was not enough to talk of 

condemning foe present Gov- 
ernment, although there was 
much to condemn it For , that 
was to ignore foe fact there 
had been a century of neglect 
in housing, he said. There 
should be demands for gov- 
ernment action because noth- 
ing could be done to solve foe 
problem without action from 
foe centre. 


A narrow 

over fees 

The Libera] Party national 
executive plans for increased 
affiliation fees from constit- 
uencies survived criticism and 
defeat at the hands of foe rank 
and file by only foe narrowest 
of margins. 

The fees are needed to pay 
for fighting the next general 

The assembly carried by 
283 votes to 255, a majority of 
28, plans for two constituency 
affiliation fees: £400 and 
calculated on valid 

membership cards. 

Mr Andrew Ellis, secretary 
general of the party, said that 
m l 987 they needed £405,000 
from foe constituencies to do 
all foe campaigning work to 
which the party had pledged 
itself three years ago. 

Opponents of the plans 
feared that smaller constit- 
uencies were being asked to 
pay a disproportionate share: 
There were complaints about 
lack of consultation and that 
not much time was being 
given to raise extra funds. 

The assembly also voted to 
increase the recommended 
minimum party membership 
subscription from £7.50 to £10 
and decided that there should 
be a reduced membership fee 
of £3 for the unwaged. 

• The liberal Party had 
reached the limit of its re- 
sources, with heavy expen- 
diture expected in 1987 in 
preparation for foe General 
Eledion and an accumulated 
deficit to date of £1 50,000, Mr 
Anthony Jacobs, joint trea- 
surer, said Mien he asked for 
approval of the annual 

While it had been a reason- 
ably satisfactory financial year 
with foe deficit of £37,602 
slightly m excess of the bud- 
geted defeat, they bad funded 
only 85 per cent of expen- 
diture compared with 92 per 
cent in 1985. 

If there was real determina- 
tion to rive support it would 
be possible to maintain full 
campaign strength up to the 
General Section. 

Although a challenge, it was 
foe sort of difficulty they 
would have to face up to when 
they achieved political power. 
he said. 

Sir Hupb Jones,, joint trea- 
surer. said the one area of 
shortfall in 1985 income had 
been from membership cards 
and that was a repetition of 

The accounts were

best form 
for half 
a century’ 

Big bad wolf Norman 
Tebbit could huff and puff, 
but he was not going to Wow 
foe Liberal house down, Mr 
Paul Tyler. Chairman of foe 
party, said, presenting the 
annual report to the assembly. 

The Liberals were in belter 
shape for the coming general 
election than at any com- 
parable time for foe past 50 
years and their target should 
be nothing less than 12 million 
votes, he said. 

Mr Tebbit, foe Consep- 
vative Party chairman, was 
presiding over a disintegrating 
empire right through the 
country, just as the Labour 
Party had effectively ceased to. 
exist in many parts of south- 
ern England. Labour re- 
mained in third place in the 
ballot box since foe last gen- 
eral had barely held 
its disastrous level of 1 983. 

The Conservative Party was 
cranking to a standstill. On 
Monday Mr Tebbit had an- 
nounced resolutions that 
would be debated at the 
Conservative conference. 
There' were a record 90 resolu- 
tions criticizing the collapse in 
foe party and its weakness at 
the grass roots, but not one 
would be debated. 

Mr Tyfer added.” We are 
seen to be good at winning 
elections. People like voting 
for us. Sick of ping pong Party 
games, people are voting, 
increasingly and consistently, 
for the Alliance. We have built 
a solid structure on firm 
popular support. We have 
become a formidable ejection- 
winning movement." 

He said that foe liberals 
could not permit themselves 
the luxury of any more near- 
misses. such as the by-election 
in Newcastle-under-Lyme. He 
added, urging all Liberals to 
hdp at the coming skirmish in 
Kn owsley North, that they 
could make an impact which 
would carry them through to 
polling day. 

Mr Phil Harris, vice-chair- 
man, National Executive, sec- 
onding adoption of foe annual 
report, said that the party had 
doubled its increase in 
membership of previous 
years. Membership increased 
by 10,000 last year and this 
year it was up 15.000. 

Mr Andrew Ellis, party 
secretary general, announced 
the establishment at party 
headquarters of the general 
election campaign unit for the 
final to the election. All foe 
political and organizational 
preparations for foe general 
election would come within its

started to crank up their

said in his report to Assembly.

Sex advice 
‘is needed’ 
in schools 

Calls for increased sex 
education in schools and 
greater help at all stages for 
pregnant teenagers were made 
at a fringe meeting arranged 
by foe Maternity Alliance and 
Brook Advisory Centres. 

Mrs Elizabeth Shields, MP 
for Ryedale, said prevention 
was better than abortion and 
that could be achieved 
through ■ seeing school- 
children, boys and gills, were 
advised and helped on sex 

While pressure on foe 
school curriculum meant sex 
education was never likely to 
become a regular subject, it 
should be possible to have 
men and women, qualified, 
experienced and preferably 
(-married, to go round schools 
and talk to children. 

While many children got on 
wen with teachers, she said, it 
was not always easy for young- 
sters to talk to them on such a 
personal topic. Children 
might .find it easier with a 
sympathetic stranger. 

Mr Simon Hughes, MP for 
Southwark and Bermondsey, 
said the provisos of health 
services was normally inad-

Dr Owen it warned th at any 
weakening of the commitment 
to achieving proportional 
representation as part ofany 
deal with another political 
party would beia betrayaL 

In a move which has thrown 
into some confusion the proce- 
dures to be followed by the 
Alliance in the event of a hong 
parliament, the assembly 

voted overwhelmingly in fa- 
vour of a plan under which the 

negotiations would be con- 
ducted through a negotiating 
team comprised of the two 
leaders and other repre- 
sentatives elected by the par- 
ties* MPS. 

It insisted that the progress 
of such negotiations should be 
reported hack to the two 
parliamentary parties for ap- 
proval and decision 

The decision goes against 
the firmly expressed wish of 
Dr Owen and Mr Steel in a 
fetter to parliamentary can- 
didates earlier this year that 
they should be given a free 
hand in the talks. And with no 
equivalent decision by the 
SDP to impose restraint ora 
Dr Owen, it leaves the parties 
with differing arrangements 
for the critical talks which 
would follow an inconclusive 

Although be was reluctant 
to have his hands tied Mr 
Sted did not oppose yes- 
terday's decision in the knowl- 
edge that a majority of his 
MPs favoured it Having ruf- 
fled some feathers in the 
parliamentary party over his 
tough stand on Polaris, he was 

dearly unwilling to engage in 
another confrontation. It was 
also said that be was fairly 
relaxed about the change be- 
cause it would be his intention 
in any case to consult his 
colleagues throughout the 
hung parliament talks. 

But the move, inspired by 
the Association of Liberal 
Councillors, undoubtedly 
arose from grassroots sus- 
picions of Dr Owen and fears 
that Mr Steel might give too 
nmch ground in the interests of 
.Moving the change 

Miss Margaret Clay, general 
secretary of the ADC. said it 
would demonstrate that the 
Alliance “was not a two-man, 
and certainly not a one-man 

The warning to Dr Owen 
and other SDP leaders over 
proportional representation 
was given with Mr Steel's 
blessing. It was dear that 
before the important defence 
debate in which he freed 
criticism for moving too frr 
towjuds Dr Owen, Mr Steel 
was not averse to demonstrat- 
ing his Independence of the 
SDP leader. 

It followed what many lib- 
erals saw as a weakening in 
the PR commitment in the 
joint Alliance policy document 
Partnership for Progress and 
the decision Of the SDP last 
week to vote against wMng 
the achievement of a commit- 
ment to PR in the talks a 
binding pledge* Instead they 
voted to make rt a “primary 
consideration.’ 1 

But Mr David Alton, the 
Liberal chief whip, in remarks 
made with Mr Steel's 
authority said that without 
electoral reform any tem- 
porary deal would be a "gross 

To cheers from the assem- 
bly he added: “We are not 
prepared to barter for Cabinet 
seats and ministerial Bmo to- 
sines in return for dropping 
demands for electoral reform.” 

He also made dear, before 
receiving a standing ovation, 
that the Liberals would not be 
a party to .keepiiw Mrs 
Thatcher in Downing Street; a 
precondition for any coopera- 
tion between Liberals «n«i 
Conservatives would be her 
immediate departure. 

Haring made demands of 
bis parliamentary colleagues 
on defence, Mr Sted appeared 
happy to move with them on 
other issues yesterday. He 
went along with a proposal 
that the post of Liberal chief 
should from the next par- 
liamentary session be elected 
rafter than appointed by him. 

Bat plans to have joint 
Alliance parliamentary 
spokesmen hare been put off 
because of the practical diffi- 
culties caused by the lack of a 
co “uwm body of policy be- 
tween the two parties. That is 
expected to be achieved early 
m the new year. The Affiance 
will then move towards the 
appointment of a “shadow 
cabinet” which will include

Proposals for substantially 
widening the scope of the 
small claims courts to enable 
the public to pursue claims 
quickly and cheaply without 
the help of lawyers are put 
forward by the Lord 
Chancellor's Department 

The small claims procedure, 
used last year by individuals 
and small firms to settle some 
45,000 disputes about sums of 
£500 or less, could be used for 
disputes involving larger 
sums, the department suggests 
in a consultation paper. 

It might also be extended to 
cases involving “greater 
complexity of law or fact” 
with a view to cutting delays 
and costs. 

At the same time the of- 
ficials canvass a proposal to 
prohibit lawyers altogether 
from the small claims bear- 
ings, which are already geared 
for use by the public without a 
lawyer. Such a proposal might 
“help the individual litigant 
and improve the image of the 
small claims procedure”, it 

Alternatively the law might 
be changed so that non- 
lawyers, such as advice work- 
ers, would be granted 
unrestricted rights of audience 
at those hearings. 

At present, non-lawyers can 
represent claimants before tri- 
bunals only, although they can 
appear in small claims courts 
with the registrar’s 

The proposals come at a 
time when the Government is 
already suggesting — amid 
much opposition from law- 
yers — that advice workers 
could replace solicitors and 
give free legal advice under the 
legal aid scheme. 

Today’s paper, including a 
study of the small claims 
system commissioned from 
Touche Ross management 
consultants and based on 


consumers' views, is part of a 
much wider review of civil 
justice and comments are 
invited in preparation for a 
forthcoming paper by the 
Lord Chancellor on the whole 
spectrum of the civil courts. 

In particular it asks if a new 
intermediate land of adjudica- 
tion, based on the small claims 
procedure and simpler than a 
full trial, is needed for other 
cases, such as claims of be- 
tween £1 ,000 and £5,000, with 
a judge or registrar presiding. 

Such cases might be those 
suited to arbitration and 
where the costs of a full trial 
are disproportionate to the 
amount involved, but where 
more pre-trial attention is 
needed than with small 

The paper concludes that 
there is a high level of con- 
sumer satisfaction with the 
fairness of the small claims 
system. But there are weak- 
nesses, in particular the 
marked variation in the 
amount of time courts take to 
deal with cases — from less 

than 16 weeks to more than 36 

It suggests several reforms: 
courts, and not the parties in 
the case, should seta timetable 
for the case: registrars should 
act more “inquisrtoriaily” to 
find out the acts of the case 
and iron out any imbalances 
in forensic skill between the 
parties; courts should do away 
with preliminary hearings and 
dispose of cases at a angle 

It finally proposes that die 
public’s preference for the title 
“s mall plaints court” should 
be officially adopted and used 
in the relevant court forms. 
The court would remain part 
of the High Court

Gypsy Mr Thomas Maguire,

that the mysterious Greta was

ignored by 

Between 30 and 50 per cent 
of British patients, some o 
whom arc seriously ill. do not 
comply with prescribe rs 
instructions, the British 
Pharmaceutical Conference 
was told vvsterday. Mr John 
Sharp, a project manager ot 
the Association of onusn 
Pharmaceutical Industry, said 
that an even higher percentage 
or elderly people did not 
com pi v with instructions 
about taking medicines. 

“Many patients make errors 
of omission or commission 
that could endanger their 
health ” he said. 

Dr Derek Baton, a commu- 
nity pharmacist in Edgwarc, 
north London, told an audi- 
ence of 1.000 pharmacists, 
who attended the annual con- 
ference in Jersey, that serious 
illness did not always cause 
patients to exercise greater 
care to comply with 

“The disease appears to be 
relatively unimportant as a 
determinant of compliance.

said. e _ 

“The most interesting fact 
to ha\ c come out of ins Obliga-

with compliance. This is 
counter to common wisdom. 

Big surge 
in building 

By Richard Evans ‘ 
Political Correspondent 

New construction figures 
due out today will disclose s 
big surge in building in Bntam 
over the past 12 months. 

Figures fron The Depart- 
ment of Environment are 
expected to show that over the 
past three months orders for 
private houses are up by 10 
per cent on the same period a 
year ago. while those for 
commercial development, 
have increased by 25 per cent. 

Mr John Patten, Minister 
for Housing. Urban Affairs 
and Construction, believes 
that total orders for new 
building work, including pri- 
vate and public sector housing 
and industrial and commer- 
cial work, are now at a higher 
level since 1979. 

With the continuing in- 
crease in orders, the Govern- 
ment is confident 1986 will be 
the fifth successive year in 
which the construction 
industry's output has in- 
creased, which has not hap- 
pened since the 1950s.

We’ve grown steadily over forty years, and will continue to do so. But one thing will remain unchanged : our commitment 
to helping you arrive in better shape. 

Because we know we couldn’t have done it without you. So here’s to Hong Kong’s airline for the next forty years! 

— Arrive in better shape 


The Swire Group ES M 



Do you feel reassured when you 
see our name on an aircraft engine? 

A lot of people tell us they do. 

And they aren’t all passengers. 

But the people who buy our 
engines don’t make their decisions on 
the basis of reputation alone. 

They can’t afford to make the 
wrong choice. They have to be totally 
convinced that our engine is the best 
for their intended purpose. 

The result is that our products 
provide power for high flying jets down 
to deep diving submarines. 

These produced record sales in 
1985 of £1.6 billion and pre-tax profits 
of £81 million. 


Our RB211-524 engine provides 
power for wide bodied aircraft like the Boeing 747 
Jumbo Jet and the Lockheed Tristar. 

Medium haul types such as the Boeing 757 use the 
RB211-535. And the V2500 engine is being developed 
with our international partners to power the Airbus 
A3 20 and other medium range aircraft. 

Smaller planes such as the Fokker 100 and the 
Gulfstream IV executive jet will use the newly develop- 
ed Rolls-Royce Tay engine. 

In all, over 270 airlines worldwide use our engines. 


More than 16,000 of our military engines are cur- 
rently in service with over 110 armed forces throughout 
the world. 

Some of their most sophisticated fighters depend 
on Rolls-Royce engines. 

The Pegasus, which gives the Harrier its vertical 
take-off capability, is the only engine of its type in 

Europe’s latest fighter, the Panavia Tornado, has 
the Turbo -Union RB199 engine to thank for its out- 
standing performance and versatility. 

And we expect to play a key part in developing the 
engine for the European Fighter Aircraft, planned to be 
Europe’s fighter of the future. 


Of course, our gas turbines can be put tp uses 
other than powering aircraft. 

They’ve been used by 25 of the world’s navies, in 
warships ranging from hovercraft and fast patrol boats 
to giant rulers of the waves, like HMS Invincible. 

Others have been developed for power generation 
and oil and gas pumping installations. 

All told, our business is made up 
of 1,200 customers operating 27,000 
of our engines. So if the name 
Rolls-Royce means something to you, 
you’re in good company.

Restoring grandeur 
of Stevenson’s day 
wins 1986 award 

By Caroline Moorehead 

A pleasant gabled bouse more conscious of the un- 
set among some brave young portance of conservation. 

K^ Kl o5'.i h< ; «“ taK had to be prop- 

how Robert Louis Stevenson 
described Pilrig House in 
Edinburgh, which was an- 
nounced last night as winner 
of the J986 Royal Institution 
of Chartered Surveyors and 

of Chartered Surveyors and 
The Times Conservation 

Stevenson's grandfather, 
Lewis Balfour, was bom in 
Pilrig »n 1777 and the building 
featured in both Kidnapped 
and Cotriona. 

Pilrig House, a late example 
of a traditional Scottish laird's 
home, built in 1638, wins first 
prize in the privately funded 
schemes category of the 
awards. The other category, 
for publicly funded schemes, 
has no first prize winner, but 
joint second prizes go to an 
eighteenth century tenement 
building in the Royal Mile of 
Edinbugh. Advocate's Close, 
and to a Georgian house in 
Worcester, 163 London Road. 

Six buildings have won 
prizes in the two categories, 
with a further nine com- 
mended, from a total of 60 
schemes entered under the 
1986 theme of “Conserving 
Residential Property’*. 

It is the sixteenth RlCS/Tbe

houses, terrace houses, con-

of a farmer large house, a 
tenement budding, a stone- 
dad Georgian house and a 
nineteenth century listed 
house, some almshouses — re- 
flect the enormous diversity of 
the schemes submitted. 

Skill and ingenuity in 
conversion were not enough: 
entrants had to prove value 
for money, inventiveness in 
solving technical difficulties, 
efficiency in planning and 
building, and show that the 
finished result enhanced the 
appearance of the 

Pilrig House was once a 
somewhat plain building, to 
which subsequent owners had 
added a Greek classical door- 
way, limber panelling, , dec- 
orative plasterwork and 
finally a Victorian wing. The 

being given to the City of 
Edinburgh in 1941 for use as a 

Natural decay, persistent 
vandalism and, in 1971, a fire, 
had reduced the house to a 
ruin. When, in 1983, Wimpey 
Homes Holdings and Michael 
Laird and Partners, a firm of 
architects, won the contract to 
restore the house to its original 
state they found an almost 
totally derelict shell. 

Afier that, it was a case of 
faithful reconstruction. 
Wimpey and the' architects 
embarked on an exhaustive 
programme of research, dig- 
ging up old photographs, 
drawings and books to help 
them recreate the house as 
precisely .as possible. 

Any stonework that could 
be salvaged from the rubble 
was put to one side and used 
again. Bit by bit. stone by 
stone, the marriage lintel 
saved and put back and the 
turnpike stair refashioned, 
Pilrig grew back into its 
fanner shape. Alongside, the 
architects laid out a small 
sunken garden, with plants 
they believe would have been 
growing there in the early 
seventeenth century. 

The restored house and 
garden have transformed 
Pilrig Park from a wilderness 
dominated by a blackened and 
crumbling ruin to a charming

An agreement signed yes-

surviving patches of country - 
side inhabited by all six native 
British reptiles. 

The deal between the Brit- 
ish Herpetological Society and 
the Forestry Commissioa 
underlines the new commit- 
ment of the commission, the 
largest (and owner in Britain 
and owner of all the country’s 
nationalized woodland, to 
encourage and protect wild life 
in its timber plantations. 

"Forest management now 
has a lot of conservation 
requirements built info it” Mr 
Martin Oirotn, environment 
officer for the west region of 
the commission, explained. 
“They are not boft-on extras 
any more”. The land in 
Warehara Forest, between 
Tolpuddfe and Bournemouth, 
includes some of the best 
snake and lizard habitats in 

Mr Keith Corbett, conserva- 
tion officer with the society, 
arrived to sign the agreement 
with one of only abont 2.000 
adnlt smooth snakes left in 
Britain. It stared through 
bright yellow ey es and darted 
its forked tongue towards the 
patch of open heather which 
the commission has agreed to 
leave clear of trees to 
encourage the local reptiles. 

“This sort of heathland used 
to occur over a vast part of 
Dorset". Mr Corbett said. 
“Now it is reduced to little 

Deeper in the forest. Mr 
Eric Masters, a senior ranger 
with the commission, stood 
under a ramrod-straight pine 
tree destined to become a 
telegraph pole. His job had 
been extended from control- 
ling deer and squirrels to 
looking after the bats that 
nested in the boxes nailed to 
the tree. 

He extracted a long-eared 
bat from a doth bag and said 
the forest had become an 
outstanding haven for wildlife. 

The poisonoos adder is 
fonnd in the forest as well as 
the non-poisonons grass and 
smooth snakes, not to mention 
all three British lizards, 
including the plump and ex- 
tremely scarce sand lizard. 

The smooth snake is Che 
only constrictor found wild in 
Britain. It coils itself round a 
lizard before swallowing it in 
one piece. It can reach a length 
of 72cm and live for more than 
25 years.

Concern within the Conser- 
vative Pany about the ability 
of the police to remain free 
from political control and 
react to national emergencies 
has led to consideration of the 
need for a national police 

A booklet by the Conser- 
vative Study Group on Crime 
envisages the force being 
accountable nationally 
through the Home Secretary, 
provided it served only En- 
gland and Wales. 

Initially, at least, it would 
seem proper for the Sec- 
retaries of State for Scotland, 
Ireland and perhaps Wales to 
retain responsibility for their 
own national forces, the book- 
let says. 

Police intelligence would be 
better co-ordinated at national 
and local level, to anticipate 
more effectively potential out- 
breaks of civil disorder and 
serious crime, it says. 

But the local unit would be 
accountable to local consul- 
tative committees given 
strengthened statutory recog- 

There have been attempts 
to bring the operational and 
professional discretion of 
chief constables in Liverpool. 
Manchester and the West 
Midlands under dose political 
control. Similar tendencies by 
left-wing councils in the Lon- 
don area have been mooted, 
the booklet says. 

"The ‘constitutional’ solu- 
tion to these threats would be 
to make the whole police 
service accountable to Par- 
liament through ministers: in 
other words to establish a 
national police force. 

An independent inspec- 
torate would be responsible 
for the whole country’. As in 
the case of other professions, 
the public should be able to 
lay complaints before an 
ombudsman or parliamentary 
commissioner, it would re- 
place the existing Police Com- 
plaints Authority. 

But the booklet says ihere 
| are also strong arguments "for 
leaving things more or less as 
they are”. In England and 
Wales, the individual police 
officer holds the office of 
constable under the Crown. 
Thai status reinforces the 
independence of chief con- 
stables. Its removal would 
make the introduction of a 
police state that much easier.

The Chernobyl aftermath 

Western disaster predicted 

From Pearce Wright 


■ next Chernobyl-type 
nuclear power station disaster 
will occur in Europe or North 
American within five to right 
years, according to an inter- 
national study commissioned 
by Greenpeace Internatio nal. 
to be published today. 

This is the main conclusion 
of the Reactor Hazar ds Re- 
port, a document prepared for 
a special meeting of govern- 
ment ministers of the 120- 
member countries of the 
International Atomic Energy 

In principle, politicians will 
put the finishing touches over 
the next three days to a 

number of conventions to 
impose tighter safety stan- 
dards on the nuclear industry, 
to ensure better eariy warnings 
to neighbouring countries of* 
an accident and to provide for 
expert relief in coping with a 

That is the intention of the 
so-caDed “Western nuclear in- 
dustry dub", comprising the 
United States, Britain, France 
and West Germany, together 
with the Soviet Union. 

Countries like Austria and 
Sweden, which have declared 
a moratorium on nuclear ex- 
pansion, and Norway and 
Denmark, which suffered 
from the fall-out of 
Chernobyl, are taking a dif- 
ferent line: At the very least. 

they seek sanctions, in terms Scandinavia which commis- 
of financial compensation, for sioned the study on reactor 
“transboundary” radioactive safety. 


The ministerial meeting is 
the political sequel to a tech- 
nical conference in August at 
which Russian experts pre- 
sented the details of their 
inquest into ChemohyL 

After reviewing the infor- 
mation, the member slates of 
the “nuclear industry dub” 
came to an understanding for 
the support of fixture safety 

But the committed nuclear 
countries face opposition

organizations from the US,

Emission greater than all of 
world’s bombs and testing 

The first major Western 
report based on data released 
last month by Soviet scientists 
has concluded that the Chern- 
obyl unclear disaster emi tted 
more long-term radiatio n into 
the world’s air, water and top- 
soil than has been produced by 
afi the atomic bombs and 
nuclear tests ever exploded. 

The review, by the Lawrence 
Livermore National Lab- 
oratory in California, casts 
doubt upon many of the Soviet 
Union's emergency responses, 
catalogues several design 
faults at Chernobyl and con- 
demns consistent violation of 
safety procedures by Russian 

“The operators got swelled 
heads,” Dr Herbert Knots, one 
of the principal authors, told 
an American Nuclear Society 
symposium in New York last 

Chernobyl had die best 
operating record of any plant 
in the Soviet Union, and its 
operators, he said, got into a 
“mindset” that nothing coaid 
: go wrong. 

“They .thought they could do 
anything to this reactor. That 
should be a lesson for 
everyone,” said Dr Knots, 
head of the Department of 
Nuclear Energy at 
Brookhaven National Labora-

that the reactor may have

only a matter of months. 

Caesium, on the other hand, 
has a harmful life of more than 
100 years and has been linked 

From Paul Valiefy, New York 

to the development of cancers 
and genetic diseases. 

Apologists for the nuclear 
industry in the West have 
pointed out that unit 4 at 
Chernobyl did not have as 
massive a steel and concrete 
containment cap as do West- 
ern reactors. But the report 
says it was unlikely that any 
cap could have withstood the 
massive Chernobyl blast. . 

The cause of the disaster, 
the study reveals, was a test 
which tile Russians considered 
routine. It was des ig ned to see 
whether the plant's turbines 

Austria yesterday ordered the 
dismantling of its only nuclear 
power plant, at Zwentendorf 
in what was probably its last 
key decision before general 
elections on November 23 
(Reuter reports fiom Vienna). 
The plant was never used 
because of a 1978 referendum, 
which voted narrowly against 
putting it into operation. 

would continue running with 
enough energy to power emer- 
gency equipment if the reactor 
was shot down. It was carried 
otd by electrical experts and 
not physicists. 

The test was to be conducted 
at 20 per cot power. But the 
control to cat the power was 
inadequately regulated, ft 
dropped to 1 per cent, at which 
level tile reactin' was inher- 
ently unstable. “It was like 1 
trying to balance a baseball on 
top of a water melon,” Dr 
Koots said. . 

A computer readout in- 
dicated the extreme danger 
and warned that the reactor 
should be shot down immedi- 
ately. But the operators pro- 
ceeded with the test 

They had, at some time in 
the previous 24 hours, Qlegapy 
turned off the safety derice 

which would have brought 
automatic shut- down. Their 
motive was that they wanted to 
be able to repeat the test, aid 
needed the reactor running. 

So they raised the power to 6 
per cent and held it there 
despite a role that it should not 
operate below 20 per cent. To 
increase the power the op- 
erator raised 211 of the 215 
cont r o l rods from the reactor's 
core in contravention of an- 
other rale which says that 30 
is the *nh»hnnm safe number. 

Yet despite all this the 
situation could have been 
saved in the last 40 seconds, 
the report says. It was 36 
seconds later tint the op- 
erators realized their mistake. 

They tried to shut down (be 
reactor by dropping control 
rods into the core. But they 
dropped by gravity and that 
would have taken about 10 
seconds, much slower than in 
western reactors. 

At four seconds past 
1.23 am on April 26 unit 4

The graphite, which normally 
operates at temperatures of 
M00 degrees Fahrenheit to 
accelerate the chain reaction 
which produces the power, 
caught fire. There were at least 
two explosions; the second was 
possibly a steam one, a third 
perhaps hydrogen. The 1,000- 
ton steel cover di sin te g r ated. 

About 25 per cent of the 
radiation was released im- 
mediately, the report says, and 
the rest over the next eight 
days. More than eight tons of 
radioactfve matter was blasted 
like a gigantic firework dis-

British pledge 
of action on 
air transport 

Brussels — Efforts to lib-

and move toward cheaper air; 
fetes are to be intensified 
before Britain gives up the 
- presidency of the EEC Council 
of Ministers in December, Mr 
John Moore, the Minister of 
Transport, said yesterday 
(Richard Owen writes). 

Addressing the Transport 
Committee of the European 
Parliament, he said that he 
was calling a special EEC 
meeting on air transport in 10 
days' time, in addition to the 
EEC Transport Ministers 
meetings already scheduled 
for November and December. 

“The consumers of Europe 
have suffered too long from

Rau promises Germans 
a safe and fair future 

twain John En gland, Bonn 

Herr Johannes Rau, the 
candidate of the Social Demo- 
cratic Party (SPD) for the 
West German chancellorship 
in the federal election, in 
January, yesterday promised 
Germans a safe and socially 
fair future for all if his party 
were elected to power. 

Presenting the SPD's mani- 
festo in Bonn, Heir Rau said 
that its seven main points, 
headed by the fight against 
mass unemployment, pre- 
sented a clear alternative to 
the Government's “unjusf* 
financial and tax policies. 

He said that SPD tax re- 
forms would require finan- 
cially “stronger shoulders" to 
support the weaker. But citi- 

zens would be told who would 
have to make sacrifices, and 
who would be given tax relief 
Other main points in the 
SPD programme arc ecologi- 
cal renewal of the industrial 
society, a secure energy supply 
without nudear power, social 
peace and justice, real equality 
between men and women, 
defence of the liberal state 
based on the rule of law, and a 
new, greater effort for peace, 
easing of East-West tensions 
and disarmament 
The programme, approved 
by the SPD national executive 
on monday, will be tabled for 
final acceptance by a party 
election conference in On- 
entrorg tomorrow.

Its findings are being called 
the “seven-year accident 
cycle” among those who have 
seen the pre-publication 

The inquiry looked at the 
seven types of atomic reactors 
which form the bulk of the 
world's nucler power stations, 
in the light of the Chernobyl 

The study was arranged by a 
former nuclear industry sci- 
entist, Dr Helmut Hirsch, who 
now directs the Ecological 
Research Group in Hanover, 
north Germany. 

Other individuals with in- 
dustrial backgrounds who 
contributed to the study were 
Mr Gordon Thompson, from 
the US. Mr Ralph Tonic, 
from Canada, Mr Myde 
Schneider from France, and 
two Britons, Mr Richard 
Anderson and Mr John Large. 

They conclude that Cherno- 
byl showed that the three 
articles of feith on which the 
nuclear industry was based 
were false. 

These were; 

• A large accident releasing 
the contents of a nudear 
reactor could not happen; 

• People had never been 
killed directly by a nuclear 
power station accident; 

• A nuclear-bomb explosion 
could not occur in the ura- 
nium fuel of a nudear power 

Their inquiries looked at 
the “excuses” that each 
country's industry made as to 
why the Chernobyl reactor 
design was unique in its lack 
of safety features. 

The “green” advisers say 
that it had a secondary 
containment system com- 
parable with that in many 
Western reactors, and better 
than some. 

Reactors with comparable 
pressure tube design, and re- 
actors with large graphite 
cores, were all designed, built 
and operated in the West

Soviet airline • . A 

security faces 
review after 
hijack deaths 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

A thorough review of Soviet 
airline security, especially 
covering procedures at the 
large number of provincial 
airports, many of which are 
geographically remote, is ex- 
pected io follow Saturday’s 
abortive seizure of a 
Tupolev 134 airliner with 76 
passengers on board. 

The bloody and still in- 
completely explained incident 
near the Urals industrial town 
of Ufa, some 700 miles east of 
Moscow — in which six peo- 
ple. including the two hi- 
jackers, lost their lives — was 
one of the most violent ever 
acknowledged by the authori- 
ties here. 

The brief Tass account of 
the seizure of the plane and 
the subsequent shoot-out led 
many Muscovites to approach 
Western contacts yesterday in 
an effort to discover more 
details. But few were forth- 
coming because of the remote- 
ness of the spot and the news 
blackout imposed by the 

As has been the practice 
after previous repotted exam- 

S les of air piracy inside the 
oviet Union, the terrorists 
involved were described only 
as “criminals" and “drug 
addicts", and no public in- 
dication was given of any 
political or personal motiva- 
tion in seizing the aircraft, 
which was grounded at the 
time for re-fuelling. 

Similar tactics aimed at 
eliminating any popular sym- 
pathy for hijackers ocurred in 
1 983 when a plane was seized 
by a group of Georgians. 

One was later described as a 
drug addict, another as a neo- 
Nazi, and the official media 
alleged that their action had 
been masterminded by a far- 
mer priest also portrayed as a 
“drug addict", who was a 
regular listener to Voice of 

According to American 
sources, Saturday’s attempted 
hijack was the 24ih such 
incident known to have taken 
place in the Soviet Union 
since the 1950s, including 
defections or attempted defec- 
tions in Soviet military 

Many of the previous at- 
tempts have also been un- 
successful. the majority car- 
ried out by Soviet citizens 
anxious to escape to the West. 

The first known Soviet hi- 
jack occurred during the mid- 
1950s when a man and a 
woman armed with pistols 
attempted to commandeer a 
plane on a domestic flight 
over the Baltic republics, one 
of the parts of the Soviet 
Union where nationalism is 
strongest Both were even- 
tually disarmed and the flight 
engineer, who was killed, was 
made a posthumous Hero of 
the Soviet Union. 

As the world’s largest car- 
rier, Aeroflot (official motto 
“speed and comfort") has in 
recent years already greatly 
increased security surround- 
ing the estimated 4,000 sched- 
uled flights that .its flea of 
approximately 2,000 planes 
makes every day. Precise 
stastics remain a dosely- 
guarded mflrtary secret. 

guard shot 
by airport 

Islamabad (AP) — Four un- 
identified gunmen who reach- 
ed the main runway at the 
Pakistani capital's airport at 
the weekend shot a security- 
guard who challenged them, 
officials said yesterday. 

An Airport Security Force 
spokesman said that the gun- 
men were seen on the runway 
at about midnight on Sunday. 
The guard challenged the men, 
who opened fire with auto- 
matic weapons. He was said 
yesterday to be in a stable 

The Pakistan Government 
ordered immediate improve- 
ments in airport security after 
the Pan Am jet hijack at 
Karachi on September S. dar- 
ing which 20 passengers were 
killed and four Palestinian 
hijackers were captured. 

But the incident at Islam- 
abad indicates that there are 
still security problems. 

The spokesman declined to 
speculate on the reasons for 
the intrusion. He said the 
authorities were searching for 
the four men. 

Airport sources said that the 
incident took place an hour 
before a Saudia airliner and a 
British Airways 747 jumbo jet 
were to land. 

Three Saudia offices in 
Karachi were bombed earlier 
this summer, but no-one has 
claimed responsibility for the 

The four men arrested in 
the Pan Am hjjack are being 
held in Karachi, where Paki- 
stani security officials have 
expressed concern about the 
possibility of a rescue attempt 
to free them. 

The four said during the 
hijack that they wanted to 
secure the release of three men 
being held in Cyprus. Islam- 
abad and Karachi are the 
country's two main airports.

Uganda allows relief 
supplies into Sudan 

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi 

Uganda has reopened its 
border with Sudan to allow re- 
lief food supplies to move to 
millions of people feeing star- 
vation as a result of famine 
caused mainly by the long- 
drawn-out civil war there. 

Uganda closed the border a 
month ago after rebel Ugan- 
dans who had been living in 
Sudan bunched attacks on 
parts of northern Uganda. 

The decision to reopen the 
border to relief supplies, but 
not to other traffic, was an- 
nounced after an eight-man 
Sudanese mission flew . to 

Kampala for talks. 

Uganda has accused Sudan 
of supporting the rebels, al- 
though Sudan denies this. A 
joint commission has been set 
up to deal with border issues, 
but Uganda remains suspi- 
cious and has reinforced troop 
border positions. 

On Uganda's eastern bor- 
der, Kenya is restricting the 
movement of Ugandans into 
this country. More than 100 
have been arrested in Nairobi 
and other centres and charged 
with being in Kenya illegally.

Gandhi gaffes in West 
Bengal visit widen 
state party divisions 

Indian commentators were 
yesterday horrified by the pol- 
itical mess that Mr Rajiv 
Gandhi, the Prime Minister, 
made of a three-day visit to 
the communist-run state of 
West Bengal. 

The visit this week was 
supposed to have deflected 
criticism of the central Gov- 
ernment, reunified the local 
Congress Party, and put his 
troops into good heart for next 
year's elections to the state 
assembly. It failed on all three 

Some of the comment 
against Mr Gandhi in the In- 
dian press is unfair, since it 
blames him from time to time 
for not being political enough 
in his judgments, and on this 
occasion blames him for not 
being above the party fray. 

Bui much of the comment is 
aghast at his hamfistedness in 
referring to agitation in the 
northern part of the state by 
the Gurkha people. 

Perhaps anxious to show 
that blame for the Gurkha 
discontent cannot be laid at 
the central Government’s 
door, Mr Gandhi insisted that 
the troubles were not anti-na- 
tional in character, an asser- 
tion that cut the groundneatly 
from under a large proportion 
of his party in Bengal who 
have signed a motion ' vig- 

Frora Michael Hamlyn, Delhi 
orously condemning the Gur- 
khas for this fault. 

Mr Gandhi further said (hat 
the chauvinist attitude of the 
communist-led coalition in 
West Bengal was at the root of 
the campaign for autonomy 
for Gorichaland, the area 
around Darjeeling which is 
inhabited largely by people of 
Nepalese slock. 

That enabled the com- 
munists to point out that it 
was the central Government 
which turned down the appeal 
for. Nepali to be made an 
official language of the coun- 
try and refused to allow a 
constitutional amendment al- 
lowing the establishment of an 
autonomous region within the 

The Indian Express, the 
biggest-seliing newspaper in 
the country, which was re- 
cently taken over by an editor 
thought likely to be more 
favourable to the Prime Min- 
ister, said yesterday; “The 
impression conveyed by all 
this ... is either that the 
Prime Minister is unaware of 
even ibe basic facts about the 
(Gurkha) movement or that 
he is deliberately playing poli- 
tics to embarrass the left-front 
government It could be 

These' statements have 

caused confusion, and could 
conceivably undermine ef- 
forts to deal with what one day 
may emerge as a major threat 
to the country’s integrity. 

The visit started on a good 
note when Mr Gandhi an- 
nounced a gift of 6.8 billion 
rupees (£360 million) to the 
slate for investment in 
development projects. The gift 
was intended to defuse criti- 
cism that the central Govern- 
ment has kept the state 
starved of funds because it is 
ruled by opposition parties. 

But it was greeted with a 
good deal of suspicion by the 
state's Chief Minister, the wily 
Mr Jyoli Basil, and in the end 
has been treated simply as an 
election gimmick. 

Mr Gandhi’s party in Ben- 
gal was badly divided when he 
arrived and the divisions got 
worse. One faction, headed by 
Mr Subrata Mukheijee, was 
kept very much out of the 
limeiighi in favour of his chief 
rival, Mr Priya Ranjan Das 
Munshi, president of the state 

Mr Mukherjee got his own 
back by saying that the Prime 
Minister's statements on Gor- 
khaland were at variance with 
the stale party’s stand, and 
that he would write to Mr Das 
Munshi askraghim to explain. 

women rise 
Sharia law 

From A Correspondent 

Pakistani women and Is- 
lamic fundamentalists are. at 
logg e rheads orer the proposed 
implementation of Islamic 
Sharia laws. 

The fundamentalists, who 
are backed by President Zia, 
have been -pressing for the 
immediate passage of the Sha- 
ria Bill, bat womens’ rights 
activists believe that the pro- 
posed Bill would curtail 
women's rights drastically and 
would reduce their position in 
society to half that of men. 

The Women’s Action Forum 
(WAF), a militant women’s 
rights organization which has 
been arranging protest meet- 
ings and mobilizing public 
opinion, says tint the pro- 
posed Bills were essentially 
devised to tear down system- 
atically and completely the ex- 
isting legislative, judicial and 
soda) structure. 

Implementation, they be- 
lieve, would lead to the enact- 
ment of even more retrogr- 
essive laws. 

Women’s rights leaders fear 
that enactment of the Bills 
could lead to repeal of the 
Muslim family laws ordinance 
of 1961, which restored some 
fundamental rights. 

Present family laws give 
women some protection ag- 
ainst polygamy and support 
orphans’ inheritance rights.

at Games 

Seoul (AFP) - Some 500 
South Korean students threw 
Molotov cocktails and stones 
at police yesterday In a three- 
hour demonstration outside a 
hotel housing foreign journal- 
ists here for the Asian Games, 
and stoned a bus CBTTying 

A similar number of riot 
police contained the students 
as they chanted slogans 
against what they claimed was 
the military dictatorship of 
President Chun, supported -by 
US imperialism, and South 
Korea’s hosting of the Games. 

The demonstration devel- 
oped into a sit-in, punctuated 
by sporadic throwing of stones 
and fire bombs which were 
put out by the police using the 
fire extinguishes now a nor- 
mal part of riot control equip- 
ment The students dispersed 
late in the afternoon without 
any arrests. 

Student radicals have criti- 
cized the enormous cost of 
organizing the Gaines and of 
the next Olympics, which are. 
to be held here in 1988. They 
say that they are being held at 
the expense of the well-being 
and standard of ■ living of

hit squads 
driven out 
of business 

From Philip Jacobson 
San Salvador 

The right-wing death 
squads which once terrorized 
El Salvador and are said to 
have been responsible for the 
deaths of tens of thousands of 
people appear io tow ton 
driven out of their Woody 

bU, T^cmimber of killing* that 
can be laid at the door of. 
organized murder groups like . 
the Secret Ann-ConunuftHt 
Amy has declined markedly , 
in the past 1$ month* . 

The principal c redii at- 
longs, most observers believe. . 
to American diplomats Sta- 
tioned in San Salvador in the- 
early 1 980s. 

From the US Embassy, 
target of more than one armed 
attack by right-wing ex- 
tremists. a succession of 
damning reports reached iha 
poliev-makers in ashington. 
These set out in precise ami 
often gorv detail how the 
squads operated — who P«d 
them, who gave them orders, 
and who covered up for them. 
One name that cropped up 
frequently in those days was 
Major Roberto p’Aubuissoo. 
a fanatical anti-Commuhfft 
with an alarming reputation. 

-Major Bob”, as he whs 
known, was publicly described 
by one US Ambassador as a 
psychopathic killer. His de- 
nunciations of individuals as 
“enemies of the state" on TV 
and in the local press were 
considered the equivalent of a . 
death sentence. . ! , 

When the Reagan Adminis- 
tration became convinced that 
the death squads seriously 
threatened the objectives of 
US policy, the next objective 
was the Salvadorean military. 

Step by step, prodded by 
Washington and encouraged 
by the civilian Government of 
President Duarte, the high 
command set about putting hs 
house in order. But none of 
the main organizers in the 
military was ever brought to 
trial and many remain in 
uniform today. Overlooking 
the atrocious past was cleaHy 
part of the deal. 

For Salvadoreans, the grad- 
ual realization that they were 
no longer at such risk of death 
was like waking from a partic- 
ularly harrowing nightmare. It 
is as ifSan Salvador had come 
io life again, tentatively, de- 
spite the even-present shadows 
of the civil war. 

Those who lived through 
the mqsi terrible period of 
rieath^quad- activity -cannot 
quite* „eon vince themselves 
that it cut never happen again. 

As if to jog their memory. 
Major D’Aubuissoa has pop- 
ped, up from obscurity as a 
hardline right-wing politician 
to accuse the Spanish rector of 
the Catholic university here. 
Father Eflacuria. of being 
sympathetic to the cause of the 
guerrillas. He has good reason 
to be worried.

The little Afghan town of

Part 3: Uncovering the vote fixers 

In his fight to beat off a takeover by 
Militant, Robert Kilroy-Silk, right, 
soon discovered the extent of their 
power in his Knowsley North 
constituency. Top jobs were given 
as a reward for opposing him and 
even an innocuous factory trip was

OCTOBER 6, 1985 

T he News of the World ran 
a story about Derek 
Hatton today. “The 
Ritzy Life Of Dandy 
Derek" says that the 
“red wrecker*' as it cans him, leads 
a “life of luxury." Apparently he 
wears Pierre Cardin suits and 
tailored shirts, has had two foreign 
holidays in the last year, dines at 
expensive restaurants, has bought 
his daughter a pony and has a 
friendship with an attractive 
blonde, but none of this is really 
important He shouldn’t be ar- 
raigned on the basis of his clothes 
and his daughter's riding lessons. 

What is important is their 
allegation that, apart from receiv- 
ing £10.000 in expenses from 
Liverpool City CoundL he also 
receives £11,000 a year from 
Knowsley Council for “just 1716 
hours a week." and that he has two 
“minders". They also claim that 
the council's Ford Granada made 
two round trips from Liverpool to 
the Labour Party Conference in 
Bournemouth so that he could 
attend a Variety dub party in 

time of our meeting tomorrow and 
to make sure of the arrangements 
for the TV crew. I could tell there 
was a problem the moment be

“Have I caused you problems?"

“I'm afraid you have, Robert." 
he answered apologetically. We 
got on well together. 

“Do you want me to call it off?” 
I asked. ■ 


“We'll call it off." 1 said, firmly. 

He seemed relieved. “1 think it 
best,” he said. “It's not me. You 
know that, don't you? It's not the 

One of the shop stewards had 
suggested that as the film is about 
my reselection, and as I'm being 
opposed by the Militants, they 
would have “the Liverpool heavy 
mob at the gates.” That scared 
them. They panicked. They tried 
to get the company to call it oft 
The management refused. The

wanted to cancel the visit they 
must tell me themselves, but I did

There is also the question of 
Phil McSorley, a long-standing 
member of the TGWU. now 
retired, who used to be on the 
union's national executive. He has 
been insisting to Peter and me for 
months that he is still a delegate to 
the constituency Party and has 
complained of not receiving no- 
tices of meetings. I have always 
thought that, as he didn't appear 
on. any recent list, he was 

“Oh no," said Peter Killeen, 
assistant regional organizer of the 
Labour Party in the north-west. 
“He has been a delegate all along. 
I’ ve seen a copy of the letter in the 
correspondence book of the 
branch that nominated him as a 
delegate." He was getting h copied 
before it was “lost" 

“They're more than capable of 
ripping out the page if they find 
out that we know about it,” he . 
went on. “They kept Phil off the 
management committee because 
they know that he'd support you." 

There was more. The chairman 
of the constituency, Jim 
McGinley. an open supporterof — 
and newspaper seller for — Mili- 
tant, has apparently been offering 
membership of the TGWU- and a 
place on my management 
committee in return for a promise 
to support Tony Mulheam's bid 
for the candidacy. 


We’re in trouble. According to my 
well-placed source in the TGWU, 
active efforts are being made 
within the union to deliver my 
seal to the Militants. My expecta- 
tion that the TGWU regional 
bureaucracy would be aghast at 
what is happening in my constit- 
uency and act swiftly to sort it out 
has been destroyed. 

But there's worse. I've found 
out that the man in the TGWU 
with whom Peter Killeen is liais- 
ingto investigate the credentials of 
the union's delegates is actually 
organizing the conspiracy. 

the last dozen years, though we did 
have a flat in Ormskirk. I've made 
no secret of the feet. Indeed, I told 
my party when I was first selected 
that 1 were if elected I would move 
house and live near the place I was 
expected to work five days a week, 
and that is what I did. My family 
comes first— before politics — and 
I did not intend to become an 
absentee fether. 

OCTOBER 15-17 


I wrote to Neil to say I was 
resigning as Shadow Home 
Office Minister. It means 
that I will be out of serious 
politics at a senior level for 
the rest of ibis Parliament. It also 
means that I wfll not be a minister 
when the next Labour government 
is formed, as I could reasonably 
have expected to be. There are 
several reasons why I feel that I 
have to resign. The most im- 
portant is the battle for 
reselection, which is taking a lot of 
my time. I never seem to be off the 
telephone. It is also distracting 
and debilitating. 

I have to admit the joy has gone. 
Politics has been spoilt, I hope - 
only temporarily. The real battle is 
to ensure that it doesn't sour me, 
that I don't become an embittered, 
cynical and sad old man. 

There was also a secondary 
complaint against me, that I 
hadn't done enough about un- 
employment. I haven't brought 
work to the area. Now how do you 
answer that? If I have foiled then 
so has every other Liverpool MP, 
including the Militants' beloved 
Tory Helds in Broedgreen. 

In feet, the Militants and their 
flk are the biggest deterrents to job 
creation on Merseyside. Dozens of 
times in the last few years I have 
tried fruitlessly to persuade com- 
panies to locate on Merseyside or 
in Knowsley. Each time the 
derision -went against us because 
of their perception of our mili- 
tancy, although we aren’t as 
militant or strike-prone as they 
thought. ■

Great news. One of Peter's in- 
vestigations has borne fruit Joe 
Lawler, a Militant and a member 
of Hatton's private army (as the 
Liverpool static security service is 
known locally), a vice-chairman of 
the constituency party , and the 
membership secretary, is not a' 
delegate. It's fantastic news: he's- 
one of the most uncouth, loud; 
mouthed, nasty and active of all. 

There are now 141 delegates 
entitled to vote: I need a mini- 
mum of 71 votes and have 66. But 
Lawler's demise is a morale boost. 

It shows how bad things are. the 
tricks they have been up to. 

OCTOBER 18-19 

Why, L wondered, didn't the 
Militants tell the .truth? The real 
issue is ideological They're 
believers in the politics of the 
street and of the mob, whereas I 
believe in old-fashioned things 
like the rule of law and par- 
liamentary democracy. I won't 
endorse irresponsible foolishness 
like the strike of schoolchildren 
they organized m Kirkby. which 
-led to young boys being put into 
police cells and charged with 
breaches of the peace while the 
Militants went scot-free. 



No me who hasn't been thr«jth 
mandatory reflection can Mjy 
appreciate jest how hotnble ana 
distasteful the whole thing is, and 
how it saps your confidence and 
motivation. I'm not the only one. 
Frank Field, the MP forBirkw- 
head, who fongjbt off * *“***5*® 
challenge from Militant, says that 

it took two years out of his life. He 

feels very Mtter and angry abort

Another MP, this time from the 
so-called hard left in the north, 
actually shed tears, real, wet tears, 
mi the shoulders of a colleague la 
the Tea Boom in the House of 
C o m mo n s because of the strain of 
being opposed, even though he 
knew he would win. 

Norman Atkinson, the MP for 
Tottenham for the last couple of 
decades and former treasurer of 
the Labour Party, who was de- 
selected in favour of Benue Grant 
- of aD people - says that the 
reseketiou process took him out of 
politics for a year. 

Rcsdectiou is the dominant aad 
often the sole topic of conversation 
among my colleagues in the Tea 
Boom, at dinner and In the bars at 
the House of Commons. Aad these 

are colleagues who are unopposed, 

who wOl be reselected from a 
shortlist of one, as I was in my 
Ormskirk constituency. Neverthe- 
less, they fed that a threat exists: 
something could happen, things 
could go wrong. There is always 
the possibility that they will door 
say something — or be forced by 
events ljke the miners' strike Into a 

public position — tint mil put 
dwm temporarily at odds with 
their constituency party and so 
lose them the n om i n a ti o n . There is 
a great incentive, as they say, “to 
keep their heads down." 

They have sleepless nights. 
They are constantly looking over 
their shoulders, spend more time 
in their constituencies on party 
politics and have to devote more 
time and energy to organizing their 
supporters when they should be m • 
Parliament.' As they have all 
reiterated dozens of ti mes, we win 
not be able to ran a Labour 
government in these circum- 
stances, especially if more of my 
colleagues are confronted with the 
kind of conflict I have now. 


This month's routine meeting of 
my constituency management 
committee was as nasty and ill- 
tempered as most of the others 
have been for the last two years. It 
was the Militants' first opportu- 
nity to display their anger at Neil's 
demolition of them at Conference. 

In addition to the habitual 
shouting, heckling and barracking 
of opponents, the Militant-led 
majority criticized the Labour 
Party at every opportunity, at-- 
tacked Neil on every pretext and 
abused me as a matter of course. A 
delegate from one Militant-domi- 
nated union branch moved a 
resolution that .condemned Neil 
Kinnock for his “unprovoked and 
unjustified" attack on the 
workforce and the people of 

Afterwards, a large group of 
members of the “real” Labour 
Party insisted upon seeing me. 
They are angry and upset 
“There's no point in coming : 
here,” they said. “We’ll have dur 
- own meetings.” 

“You can’t” 1 insisted des- 

perately. “That’s called leaving the 
Labour Party." 

. “that Jot aren't the Labour 
Party," they shouted almost as 
one. “They have nothing at all to 
do with Socialism. We're the 
Labour Party.” 

o Hobart Kfcsrmk -MM 

Now I know what the charges 
against me are. All the organizing, 
conspiring, fixing, manoeuvring, 
intimidation, trickery and hate is 
because I don't live in the constit- 
uency.. That's what Michael 
Cockerell said, anyway. That was 
the complaint the Militants put to 
him when he interviewed them for 
the BBC’s This Week Next Week 

They really must be scraping the 
bottom of the barrel if that's the 
best they can da No. I don’t live 
in the constituency, nor have 1 for

Mamage counsellors offer no easy solutions for troubled relationships, reports Lindsay Knight in part two of her 


Making up 
is hard 
to do 

T he misconceptions about 
marriage guidance 
counselling are legion; 
partly because people 
have no idea what will 
nappen when they walk through a 
counsellor’s door, and partly be- 
cause they have even less of an idea 
of what might be achieved. 

A frequent assumption is that yon 
will be counselled to save your 
marriage at all costs. But marriage 
guidance counsellor Frances Camp- 
bell says: "1 don’t see it as any part 
of my job to save anybody’s 
marriage. I think that would be an 
impertinence on my part I'm not’ 
here to give tips to people on how to 
be happily married. If anybody's got 
some, I'd like to hear them. 

“Counselling is to understand 
what’s going on for both people in 
the relationship; to find out what 
they want from it, what they hope 
for,, what they fear is happening to 
the relationship." 

An. awful lot of people do not 
seem to be very good at close 
personal relationships such as mar- 
riage. Britta Harding, a London 
social worker and sex therapist, 
believes that many people must be 
living a “twilight life" within mar- 
riage, and are often very depressed. 
Their problems are compounded by 
the reluctance of most people to 
admit that there are problems in the 
marriage and that help is seeded. 

“There is such a stigma attached 
to admitting that you can't cope 
with your husband's infidelity or 
your wife’s lack of 
communication," Frances Camp- 
bell says. “Any close relationship 
like marriage involves the very 
deepest pans of ourselves, and to 
fed that you've failed in a relation- 
ship means that you are bound to 
feel you've failed as a person in 
some way. So shame and fear are

common experiences for anyone 
whose relationship is going through 

Alison is a good example. Mar- 
ried to James, a carpenter, for 15 
yean, she gained an Open Univer- 
sity degree and was pursuing a 
second degree at the local univer- 
sity. After years of clerical jobs and 
bringing up their three children, she 
was revelling in her newfound 
academic abilities. 

“Then, quite out of the blue, I 
discovered that he was having an 
affair with one of my closest 
friends,” she says, “f was dev- 
astated, it felt as if my whole world 
was failing in. He didn't want to talk 
to me about it. Suddenly he seemed 
like a stranger. 

"I thought we’d been very close, 
that we'd got on well and sym- 
pathized with each other very 
deeply, and suddenly I found that 1 
didn't understand him at all and he 
didn’t understand me.” 

After several months of misery, 
with no communication between 
them, Alison and James went for 
marriage guidance. Frances Camp- 
bell comments: “I think quite a 
good indication of when h might be 
good to talk lo someone about your 
relationship is when you can’t 
actually think of what to do next” 

Janet had been suffering from 
depression and anxiety for several 
years. Her GP prescribed anti- 
depressants, but she felt that dregs 
were not enough and asked to be 
referred lo a psychiatrist. 

"He gave me more drugs." she 
says, “but he also suggested that a 
psychiatric social worker should 
visit me regularly. She was more 
help than any of the piUs because 
die got me talking about what was 
wrong and why 1 felt the way 1 did. 
It soon became pretty obvious that 
the pressures had often been caused 
by my husband. He was a real 
workaholic, very insecure about his 
work. We'd moved home several 
times as he changed jobs. * 

“By this time he was running his 

own business, which meant I only 
saw him late at night. The social 
worker suggested we try mamage 

“Three years later, our marriage 
is much belter and I am no longer 
depressed. We still have many of 
the same problems, but we talk 
about them now and cope better." 

G illian and her husband 
went to a counsellor 
after months of rows 
and miserable silences. 
“It wasn't what I 
expected,” she says. “I thought 
somebody would leap in and rescue 
me, sort out all my problems and 
say 'Look, this is your trouble. If 
you do this it will sort it out'. 

“But it’s not like that at all It's 
more a case of ‘Well, recognize it 
for yourself, see what your problems 
are’. Only you can sort it out, but at 
least the counsellor can help you see 
it from different angles." 

Many people do not ask for 
counselling early enough. Either 
they continue to receive pills for 
their depression (or some vague 
backache or insomnia), or they act 
out their unhappiness by having 
affair s or drinking too much. Then 
divorce seems inevitable and the 
solicitor’s office is the first port of 

calL At this point, counselling may 
be considered — but very much as a 
last resort. 

“Perhaps we might have been 
able to work something out if we 
had been helped earlier," one 
woman says, “but I couldn't bear to 
hear my husband complaining 
about me. saying how wonderful 
and sexy his mistress was. However 
skilled the counsellor, there seemed 
no point in bothering by then, so we 
separated in anger and despair." 

Most people who remain in 
counselling, however, feel they have 
benefited from it Many say their 
counselling was an educational as 
well as a therapeutic experience. 
They felt they could take their newly 
gained knowledge about relation- 
ships into other areas, such as work. 

There is often instant relief when 
counselling begins because here, at 
last is an objective outsider who is 
interested and concerned. Frances 
Campbell explains: “One of the 
things a counsellor can do is accept 
very strong, unhappy feelings and 
not be frightened of them, not want 
to change the subject the way 
friends or relatives might do. I think 
the acceptance is calming for any- 
body. After that you can begin to 
look at what is really going on." 

That is where there can be much 

more pain, as feelingsand situations 
are explored and hand lessons 
learned. “Counselling is about 
confronting issues." Renata Olins. 
London Director of the Marriage 
Guidance Council says. “We are 
not a comforting shoulder to cry on. 
Of course a counsellor may offer 
reassurance and comfort at times, 
but it is not enough to do only that. 
Wc try to help people be more aware 
of the psychodynamics in their life 
and their relationships." 

“1 would be very careful about 
recommending counselling,” one 
satisfied ex-client says. “I think it is 
very important that both of you 
want to go and that neither feels 
pushed into it. 1 was very lucky that 
my wife also wanted the relation- 
ship to work, so it was a very 
valuable shared experience. We 
would talk about wbat happened in 
sessions during the week, and it was 
really enlightening. We both valued 
the commitment the other made." 




Where to turn: drugs, 
therapy or 
simple self-analysis?

For those who have often 
suspected that women are

evidence has emerged that 
small boys, at any rate, seem 
under anaowed with the virtue 
of generosity. 

In a recent survey, published 
in America's Psychology To- 
day, children were first quizzed 
on their favourite foods. Each 
child was then given a bag with 
10 pieces of tasty titbits and 10 
of less-favoured foods. 

Boys, apparently, were far 
more likely than girls to palm off 
their broccoli and turnips and 
keep the marshmallows and 
sweets for themselves. Plus fa

Food for thought 

Johanna Garfield's aato- 
biography The Life of a Real 
Girl (Sidgwick & Jackson, 
£1155) is a compelling 
valediction to a tormented, 
anorexic adolescence in New 
York. It is a candid, witty and 
intensely moving account of 
how an affection-starved 
childhood erupted into 
trauma, dependence on ap- 
petite suppressants, and an 
eventual, harrowing sojourn in 
a mental hospital. 

At some stage, most 
women's lives are shaped by a 
compulsion for food or a vague 

obsession with appearance, so 
it's hard not to find something 
to identify with here. The back 
cover carries the good news, 
however. “Johanna Garfield is 
happy and well, living in New 
York City with bar husband 
and three children.”

I am surprised that Liz 
Hodgklnsou (Friday Page, 
September 12) should 
attribute the lower incidence of 
high blood pressure in nuns 
than in married women doing 
similar jobs to their cetibacy. 

Surely the real reason for 
Ibis difference is that nuns 
spend some part of their day in 
prayer and meditation, a well- 
documented preventive mea- 
sure against hyper-tension. 

Measuring the 
naked truth 

There is a certain class of 
woman in the United States, 
Trollope observed on his 
visit to New York in 1861. 
whose manners are more 
odious than those of any 
other human beings any- 
where else in the world. Their 
theory, he intimated, was that 
women's rights were more 
important than modesty. The 
inventor of the Barbie doll 
would agree. 

“In my opinion people 
make too much of breasts. 
They are just a pan of the 
body.” said 69-year-old Ruth 
Handler, who designed the 
curvaceous mannequin 27 
years ago and who has seen 
300 millions of the busty little 
creatures sold since. 

Ms Handler was venting 
her indignation against the 
“nasty adult minds** which 
Iasi week produced a naked 
Barbie in a New York state 
courtroom as part of the 
defence of the “Shinless 
Seven**, who are being pros- 
ecuted for baring their chests 
in public. 

The seven women held a 
pre-publicized demonstra- 
tion in a park in June to 
highlight the inequity in the 
law relating to men and 
women who remove their 
shirts in public, and were 
duly arrested for “public 
exposure**. The park that day 
was unusually full of male 
joggers, noted the local police 
who arrived for the arrcsL 

The ingenuous Barbie was 
put into the witness box by a 
clinical psychologist as part 
of the defence’s rather bold 
contention that women's 
breasts arc essentially the 
same as men’s. A breast is not 
a sexual objecL the defence 
argues, and the New York 
state ordinance violates 
women's right to equality 
under the 14th amendment. 

The psychologist pro- 
nounced that many women 
suffer mentally and phys- 
ically while trying to attain a 
perfect Barbie-like figure. She 
pointed an accusing finger at 
the naked little blonde who 
sat on a railing in the witness 
box and said: “This waist size 
cannot be attained without 
serious damage to the rib cage 
of a woman. 

“I’d like to point out that 
this doll has no areolae and 
no nipples and no genitals.” 
she went on, seeking lo 
illustrate the impossibility of 
anyone becoming the “ul- 
timate woman", as personi- 
fied by the doll. A real-life 
Barbie would be roughly 
equivalent to a woman with 
vital statistics of 39-21-33. 
according to Mattel Toys, the 

“These things on the sur- 
face appear so harmless,” she 
said. But a woman would 
need breast enlargement sur- 
gery to equal the “gravity- 
defying” Barbie breasts. 

Elsewhere .American femi- 
nists are not enamoured of 
the protest which, one said, 
has the feel of a throwback to 
the late Sixties. “It is not very 
serious.” said Betty Freidan. 
doyenne of the women's 
movement in the US. “A

come before the Supreme 
Court next month over the 
Calfed Bank's stand that the 
requirement for four months' 
maternity leave discrimi- 
nates against men.” 

The ease has caused a 
major spin in the American 
women's movement, with 
younger feminists supporting 
the bank's position and most 
established groups opposing 
it. It is. Ms Freidan says, a 
classic issue of second stage 
feminism. “The womens 
movement has rather lost us 
way. The first generation got 
burned out and the younger 
ones just take all the ad- 
vances for granted. We are in 
a state of paralysis and transt-

lion. Fifty per cent of people 
in the professions are women 
nowand yet there hasn't been 
a resiructing of the employ- 
ment system.” 

Next month's case in the 
Supreme Court is a cross- 
roads for the feminist cause 
in the United States, she said. 
“It deals with the question of 
whether women have to be- 
come like men in order to get 
equality. Our side argues that 
being equal does not mean 
being the same. If the bank 
wins it will be a denial of the 
basic reality that in society it 
is women who have the 
babies. Men can't get preg- 
nant so they don’t need it. 
We’re not talking about 
women's rights, but about 
society's rights.” 

The challenge for feminists 
now is to change the mas- 
culine values which domi- 
nate society. "We have to go 
beyond the single issue 
approach." she said, 
brusquely dismissing the an- 
tics of the shirtlcss seven.

The final cumin may have fallen

widely held to be even more 
amusing than the party's real-life 
performances. Shows like last 
night's at the Eastbourne con- 
ference are so time-consuming 
that they leave the troupe little 
time to pursue their favourite 
sideline: politics. “We are starting 
to run out of steam, so we want to 
get out while we are ahead," says 
director Simon Titley. “We sim- 
ply don't have the time to keep up 
standards, and we are reaching the 
point where the only way to go 
would be pro." A similar fete 
could yet befell them on the

however, was at a do organized by

ness, one member of the mag’s

formerly lived in South Africa, 
was keen and admits that the 
image of Buihelezi — often de- 
picted as Botha's black stooge - 
indeed needs massaging. “The

organization, has a strong impact 
here and its perception of him has

Yes. 1 think they would. Indeed, 
they would spy several reincarna-

the tiresome ones. Some Liberals 
are eternally with us: the ones who 
always seem to have lately eaten a

tyranny. Liberty is derided. The 
rule of law is flouted. In spite of 
increasing opportunities, we run 
our economies worse than ever. 
Instead of withering away as we 
grow richer, the state grows ever 
'more powerful. 

The great classical Liberals 
would. I think, be disappointed 
most of all in the feilure of 
education. The intellectual fathers 
of the party would understand its 
difficulty in keeping the head of 
Liberalism above the rising waves 
of illiberal! sm. as exemplified by 
the bureaucratic attitudes, the 
destruction of values and the 
materialism which we see all 
round us. But nevertheless they 
might be surprised that the Liberal 
Party has not resisted more vig- 
orously the rise of corporatism. 

Should the Liberal Party or the 
Alliance answer such criticism by 
setting about opening, not a new 
chapter of classical Liberalism, 
but a new political book? Should it 
accept that this is the age of 
bureaucracy and that today the 
political task is to create the 
system best suited to bureaucracy? 

People seem not only unable to 
run their own lives but to be 
averse to trying to do so even if 
they were given the means. The 
leaders of the country are primar- 
ily interested in climbing the 
career structure ladder {with, at 
the top, the help of the old boy 
net): they do not seem unduly 
disturbed that wealth accumulates 
while not only men but many of 
our institutions decay. It can be 

A group of eminent ecologists 
from nine countries is now touring 
the peat moors and bogs of 
Caithness and Sutherland, which 
are said to be unique in Europe 
and are at the centre of a furious 
dispute between environmental- 
ists and forestry interests. Only 
last week Ian Presst, director 
general of the Royal Society for 
the Protection of Birds, accused 
the Forestry Commission of com- 
pletely disregarding its statutory 
obligations towards conservation. ' 
If the ecologists become involved 
they may well regret having called 
themselves the International Mire 
Conservation Group.

Gladstone: Us fervour and breadth

argued that the presuppositions of

eroded over most of the world.

Whatever it may say from time 
to time, the Liberal Party has 
encouraged some of these bureau- 
cratic advances. When it has been 
suggested that a subsidy be given 
to an ailing industry or even to a 
plausible buccaneer like De 
Lorean, it has not always been in 
the van of the opposition. 

Should the party then declare 
that political Liberalism today is 
not about individual Liberalism, 
not about asserting that values are 
indissolubly connected with in- 
dividual liberty, and should it 
accept that the argument between 
freedom and equality is a dead 
issue? Should it proclaim that its 
job today is to accept corporatism 
and make it work better? That 
would indeed break the mould. 

I do not however see anything 
so drastic on the agenda at 
Eastbourne. Nor would I want it. 
But if another role is to be found 
for the Liberal Party it must be 
more than a compromise on 
defence and a demand for more 
public expenditure. So far the 
message from Eastbourne as 
picked up by the press seems 
dangerously concentrated on 
those themes. 

A conference may not be the 
best place to outline a party’s 
general attitude. But Liberals can-' 
not choose how to get publicity. 
They get a generous helping ofitat 
the conference and should grasp 

its opportunity. We do not need 
new essays on liberty, new defi- 
nitions of Liberalism. We need to 
show the public how a more 
Liberal country can be achieved 
and how Liberalism should be 
translated into action in educa- 
tion, industry and government 

There are some aspects of 
British liberalism which are fun- 
damental to it but seldom 
stressed. Gladstonian Liberals re- 
vered our institutions such as the 
state, the universities and the law, . 
rather than seeing them as mere 
conveniences. They respected 
their history, and believed that 
each had their own contribution to 
make to the general welfare. They 
did not regard them as the same as 
any other business, tobejudgedby 
their material success. Above all, 
they believed dial they should not 
be used for jobs far removed from 
their true purpose. Such Liberals 
would have been disturbed by the 
way the state is being burdened 
with tasks which waste its strength 
and undermine the support which 
it should draw from responsible 
individuals. They would have 
regretted the lade of respect shown 
to universities. They would' have 
been puzzled why a country so 
rich should allow such squalor in 
its cities, or such incompetence in 
its public services. 

There have long been two 
strands in liberalism: the laissez- 
faire strand and the welfare strand. 
They should not be thought of as 
being in conflict. Beveridge did 
not look forward to the indefinite 
extension of the welfare services, 
but to a time when greater 
personal wealth would enable us 
to do without them. It has been 

su ggested that the main line of 
demarcation between Socialists 
(and therefore Social Democrats) 
and Liberals lies in the relative 
importance each attaches to equaT 
ity and freedom. I believe it would 
be truer to say that the line lies 
along the divide between personal 
and stale responsibility for social- 
services. Socialists see a more 
permanent role for the state than 
do Liberals. 

But if I am right there are many 
Liberals in the SDP am) many 
Social Democrats in the Liberal 
Party. The classical Liberals 
would have welcomed the SDP’s 
proposals to link welfare and tax 
as a step towards enabling people 
to pay for their own services and 
not only as a relief of poverty. 
Indeed Liberals doubt if poverty 
will ever be cured by hand-outs. 
Handrouts create a client proletar- ' 
iat and very often benefit most the 
comparatively rich. 

. Divisions over defence are 
nothing new in Liberal history. 
Only when there has been a clear 
threat to the country have Liberals 
approved large expenditure on 
arms. But it was Liberals such as 
Cardwell and Haldane who car- 
ried through great army reforms. 
Today there is a dear threat from 
Communism. For the West uni- 
laterally to abandon nuclear weap- 
ons would increase the danger of 
war. For Britain alone to abandon 
them would be to retreat from 
those doctrines of international 
collaboration and collective se- 
curity which have been a main . 
element in Liberalism. 

By the grace of God and Roy 
Jenkins' brave compromise, the 

Jenkins' brave compromise, the 
Liberal Party has beat saved from 
a not so splendid isolation. 
Twenty years ago I thought its 
theme song should be “There ain't 
no sense sitting on the fence, all by 
yourself in the moonlight". Now 
not only is it not alone but it has to 
operate not by the gentle light of 
the moon but in the glare of public 

But it is not in the happy 
position of the party before the 
First World War when most 
people knew roughly what it stood 
for and everyone at least knew that 
it was the alternative on the left of 
the Tories. Now the alliance with 
the SDP has transformed its 
chances. But it has only a year or 
so to drum into the public mind 
what it stands for and bow it 
would put Liberalism into prac- 
tice. It should at all costs avoid 
detailed shopping lists of policy. 
Three or four major heads will be 
enough, chosen perhaps from 
industrial relations and worker 
ownership, tax and welfare re- 
form, education, devolution and 

If in addition, it can inject into 
politics something of Gladstone's 
fervour, humanity and breadth of 
vision, so much the better. But it 
might also heed the advice of 
another great Liberal, Lord Mel- 
bourne. While I believe that it 
matters very much what the 
leaders of the Alliance say, it is of 
supreme importance that they 
should all smg the same song. '

After Uruguay, Bailey Morris on the tough negotiations ahead 


The shaky launch of the “Uruguay 
round" of Gatt — the General 
Agreement on Tariffs and Trade — 
is, in itself, an historic achieve* 
mem that will be duly noted in 
books as a blow to the dark forces 
of protectionism. That is true no 
matter what happens as a result of 
the negotiations, which could last 
a decade. Despite fierce national 
differences, “no nation wanted to 
be seen as the one which sank the 
whole round," said Malcolm 
Baldridge, the US Commerce 

This was not a North-South 
round, pitting rich nations against 
the poor. It was a negotiation of 
new alliances, reflecting the chang- 
ing pattern of commercial flows 
and the dominance of the eco- 
nomic superpowers, the US and 
Japan. The developing world lined 
up with them to form coalitions 
which won on the important 
issues. India. Brazil. Australia, 
Singapore and Colombia in 
particular played important roles. 

In the process. Europe was left 
behind. This impression was re- 
inforced many times during the 
week. The EEC was preoccupied 
almost exclusively with prevent- 
ing an assault on its Common 
Agriculture Policy while other 
nations focused on high technol- 
ogy, telecommunications and 
other services which now account 
for 20 per cent of world trade. 

During the trough of the nego- 
tiations. EEC officials spent 10 
hours arguing over i 0 words in the 
agricultural text with US and 
Australian officials who led a 
coalition determined to fight sub- 
sidies. Indeed, Europe arrived at 
the talks without a common 
position on agriculture, largely 
because of French insistence that 
the wording of the working text be 
changed. The German delegation, 
led by the Economics Minister, 
Martin Bangemann. almost de- 
spaired. But it was Bangemann 
who finally cut a deal- 

At the end. French and other 
EEC officials declared themselves 
winners for achieving a form of 
words^lmost identical to the orig- 
inal which called for the phased 
reduction of the agricultural sub- 
sidies of all nations. 

But this was not the general 
impression, a minister of one 
developing country said be was 
“struck by the total absence of 
imagination" in the European 
proposals. Even though the US is 
an equal transgressor on. subsidies. 
Europe's high profile in defending 
the CAP is what stood out. 

The only new issue that Europe 
put on the table was the balance of 
benefits, or “Bob", clause. This 
was designed to correct the enor- 
mous imbalances in global trade 
by denying the benefits of the new 
round to nations which erect 
barriers to imports. From the 
outset it was known as the “Japan 
Cause". In this also. Europe was

pact hold? 

tically. Japan stepped forward, 
asserting its place as an economic 
power to defeat the “Bob" amend- 
ment Officials said it marked the 
beginning of a new era for Japan in 
international, negotiations. The 
normal Japanese negotiating tack 
is to assume as low a profile as 
possible in an attempt to put the 
spotlight elsewhere. But this time 
Japan used all the obvious public * 
relations techniques normally 
associated with the US to attack 
the proposal for its “racial 

Before hundreds of journalists, 
a Japanese minister actually used 
the term “Jap-bashing" in angling 
out Europe as the instigator of a 
plot to create dissension among 
nations. As if rehearsed, the US 
used the same language in oppos- 
ing the amendment “for tingling 
out a specific nation" The Japa- 
nese techniques worked and 
Europe was left with a Mack eye. 

This occurred despite the feet 
that many nations believe that 
eventually the enormous im- 
balances which threaten the global 
economy, the Japanese surpluses 
and the US deficits, must be 
addressed in a global context 
There is a growing belief that 
Japan must bear more of the 
burden as a world power. 

What emerged at Puma del Este 
was a strong policy tie between the 
two economic superpowers. 
America's Pacific trade is now 
greater than that across the At- 
lantic and the trend is likely to 
continue There are almost no 

high technology joint ventures 
between the US and Europe, and 
while this situation persists, said 
Michael Aho of the Council of 
Foreign Relations, the EEC will 
fell further behind. 

But the recognition of this is 

only slowly beginning to sink in. A 
high-level British official was the 

only one from Europe who 
acknowledged that the bilateral 
relationship of the US and Japan, 
marked by the growing cartel- 
ization of entire industrial sectors 
such as semi-conductors, could be 
a threat to the rest of the. world, 
and in the long term damage 
America's international standing 
and thereby its own interests. 

' In the short term, however, US 
ties with the developing world 
appear to be growing stronger. The 
US emerged from Puma del Este 
with the key points it demanded 
going into the talks. Agriculture, 
investment, intellectual property 
rights, the rule-making procedures 
of Gatt and services will all be 
subjects of simultaneous negotia- 

tions under the umbrella of a 
single trade negotiating committee 
ro be selected by the' Gatt member 

“It was 'a success for u$ because 
we came down here knowing 
exactly what we wanted,** said 
Malcolm Baldridge. “Our oppo- 
nents knew what they did not 
want. Any time you have this 
situation in a negotiation, you 
have an advantage." 

This allowed the US to build 
coalitions around the issues. Simi- 
lar coalitions will be essential to 
the success of tbe new round over 
the next few years when political 
wills will wax and wane. In no area 
was this more evident than the 
controversial issue of services. 
Developing countries, led by India 
and Brazil were strongly opposed 
to the inclusion of services in the 
new round. They are fearful of the 
lead which tbe advanced cations 
have in this field -and objected to 
negotiations under the auspices of 
Gati which they regard as a rich 
man’s dub. The Indian finance 
minister. Vishwanath Singh, 
spoke of the “long struggle against 
colonial rule" in fighting the 
proposal. But finally, after Europe 
and .the US made face-saving 
concessions that allowed a two- 
track negotiation that was not 
formally under Gatt. the develop- 
ing countries reluctantly came in. 

“Services became the focus of 
structuring the new round.” said 
Clayton Yeutter. the US Trade 
Representative. Now, in the am- 
bitious task of trying to complete 
the round in four years' lime, a 
goal which no one thinks can be 
reached, the good faith of these 
nations wfli be tested severely-

Churchill: victim, 
not villain 

In a glowing leader on February 
13, 1945. The Times gave Chur- 
chill chief, credit for what, it 
described as the “remarkable har- 
mony of polity" , attained with 
Roosevelt and Stalin at Yalta. 

Forty years later the word Yalta, 
like Munich, has begun to pass 
into the language as a symbol oi 
betrayal. Poland, like Czecho- 
slovakia. is portrayed as the 

- » __ _ ** *-* fluMiimtti onrl 

victim of British duplicity, ana 
Churchill who so powerfully de- 
nounced Chamberlain as the vil- 
lain of Munich, is himself being 
turned into the villain of Yalta. 

Two principal decisions con- 
cerning Poland were signed by 
Britain, the US and Russia at 
Yalta. Poland was to lose its 
eastern territories to the USSR in 
return for a substantial slice of 
territory to be taken from Ger- 
many; and a Polish government 
was to come into being, based on 
free elections in which all the non- 
fescist parties could take pan. 
These included the parties which 
made up the Polish govern ment- 
in-exile (in London since 1940), 
the so-called “London Poles”. 

These elections never took 
place, leading some to assume that 
the creation of a Communist- 
dominated government was. ait. 
integral pan of the Yalta design, 
for which Churchill must bear 
substantial blame. 

From the outset of the political 
discussions on Poland, which 
began early in 1942, there seemed 
to Churchill to be only one way to 
establish a multi-party system 
after the war. The London Poles 
would first have to agree to the 
territorial cession of eastern Po- 
land to Russia, including the two 
cities ofVtina (which .Russia had 
ruled before 1914) arid Lvov (a 
part of Austria-Hungary before the 
First World War). In return, in 
addition to the territory ceded by 
Germany, Poland would receive 
Soviet acceptance of free elections. 

For two years Churchill pressed 
the London Poles to agree, 
arguing that if they refused to 
make this territorial sacrifice they 
would lose all hope of political 
power, or even influence. When, 
late in 1944, they agreed, Chur- 
chill repented from Moscow that 
Stalin seemed receptive to free 
elections. By then, however, 
Stalin's own nominees, tbe Com- 
munist Poles of the “Lublin 
Committee", were already poised 
to enter Warsaw with the Red 

At Yalta a month later, Stalin 
agreed with unexpected alacrity to 
*the London Poles and other non- 
Communist parties taking pan in 
elections, and offered “effective 
guarantees" that they were “freely 
and fairly carried out”. He prom- 
ised, further, that the British and 
US ambassadors could act as, 
observers: In their final statement 
Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill 
pledged to reorganize the existing 
Communist-based government in

spite, more solidly tiian ihc Rus- 
sian Soviet government- AM in* 
telegram to Peter Fraser, the New 
prime minister, he sma 
that in spite ofh« anU-comm u ni« 

convictions, he beheved that Sto- 

lin wanted to work in harmony 
with the western democracies. 

But to his inner circle. ChurnuM 
expressed fears that Russia might 
one day turn against the West and 
that it might be said, that 
Chamberlain had trusted. Hitler as 
he was now trusting Stalin. 

Two months later, in a gross 
betrayal of the Yalta pledge* the 
Red Army arrested 1 5 Polish 
political traders while they were 
on their way to pre-election nego- 
tiations under promise ot sale 
conduct “Surely we must not be 
manoeuvred", Churchill asked 
Roosevelt (in one of the last- 
telegrams which he sent him) 
“into becoming parties to impos- 
ing on Poland, and on bow much 
more of eastern Europe, the 
Rus sian version of democracy™ - 

Between February and May 
1945, Britain and the US did all 
they could to keep their pledge to 
Poland. Churchill sent several 
stro ng protests to Stalin (i n whi ch 
Truman joined with even greater 
alacrity than Roosevelt had done). 
He brought British relations with 
Moscow almost to breaking point 
but, as be told the London Poles: 
“You cannot expea Britain to 
make perpetual war on the Soviet 

Far from being an evil pact or 
sinister conspiracy of victorious 
powers, the Yalta agreement soon 
became tbe first serious breach in 
their ability to work together. The 
suspicions aroused of Moscow's 
good faith as a signatory remain 
with us today, reinforced by. its 
attitude to the 1975 Helsinki 
agreement on human rights. 
Those same suspicions will doubt- 
less dog Mis Thatcher when she 
visits Moscow next spring, 42 
years after the Yalta accords. But 
she will surely argue, as Churchill 
still argued a year after Stalin's 
betrayal of Yalta, that “The 
supreme hope and prime 
endeavour is to reach a good and 
faithful understanding with tbe 
Soviet Unidn".

In France two months ago I saw a 
poem in a pharmacist's window 
which pleased me so much that 
there and then. I copied down the 
'first stanza. Here it is, exactly as it 
was laid out.

(In English, roughly as follows. 
“When travelling by train or car, 
boat or plane, some of you are 
bound to be overcome by extreme 
giddiness, waves of nausea, exces- 
sive sweating, abnormally fast 
heart-beat and shivering. These 
symptoms will usually be acc- 
ompanied by bowel trouble and 
vomiting. What you are suffering 

The reason 1 copied this down is 
not that it seemed so much more 
elegant in French, but that it 
neatly pinpointed one of the 
differences between the French 

and ibe English. The French, on 
the whole, are hypochondriacs 

the Whole, are hypochondriacs 
and we are noL I was once roM by 
a French Pharmacia that he could 
make a good living out of the 
Frenchman's preoccupation with - 
his liver alone. 

The French newspapers this 
summer were foil of pages called 
; “Your Holiday Diseases and How 
to Deal with Them", fn almost 
any French market you will see an 
earnest salesman pointing at a 
plastic model of the human body, 
foil of writhing intestines and 
detachable offal marketing little 
boxes of pills without which your ■ 
body will fell to pieces just like the 
modeL In almost any French 
magazine yon will see pictures and 
profiles of French doctors who 
have made a million through their 
herbal methods. 

Put it another way. When faced 
with the above verse about travel 
sickness (which was only the 
opening of a long poem about a 
sickness cure), the average French 
person would be ftiled with a - 
delicious sense of fear. The av- 
erage English person would laugh 

out loud. We are un fearful about 
disease to the point of foolishness. 
The English attitude to illness is to 
ignore all medical advice and 
mistreat our bodies until one day 
we crack up; then we turn to the 
NHS to repair the damage and we 
get very cross if it can't 

Now, the reason I said English 
and not British is that in Edin- 
burgh last month I was reminded 
just what a strong tradition of 
hypochondria the Scots share with 
the French. Or to put it another 
way, what a huge number of health 
food shops they have in Scotland, 
and I don't just mean the modem 
fresh-painted boutiques with 
names like Wild Oats, Harvest 
Friends and the ubiquitous Food 
for Thought: 1 mean ancient shops 
which have been there ever since 
the Scots started having the worst 
diet in the world, with tittle trays 
of forgotten dried husks in the 
window, faded photographs of 
medicines no longer manufac- 
tured and signs saying: “Mary 
Queen of Scots bought her laxa- 
tives here"; Hypochondria is his- 
toric in Scotland. 

But last month I did spot what I 
think may be a new trend. I saw an 
empty bottle of Lucozade lying in 
an Edinburgh gutter. Does this 
mean what I think it means 7

Government’s own target of 
25p in the pound to only 22tep 
and to bring down the top rate 
from 60p . to 40p for good 

f Like the Government Mr 
Kay also wants to raise per- 
sonal tax allowances (though 
not in the same way) and to 
extend the range of goods and 
services to which value added 
tax is applied. In these senses 
he is more Thatcherite than 
the Thatcherites. And in local 
taxation he again builds on 
Government proposals by 
nationalising the business rate 
and charging it on capital 
values and by substituting a 
local income tax (included in 

* the 22tep average basic rate) 
for the exchequer grant. 

Of course, there are also 
important differences. But the 

Income tax is too high. And 
local government’s account- 
ability is too low. 

Given this broad consensus, 
why has there not been more 
progress under a Govern- 
ment — or any rate Chan- 
cellor — with tax reforming 
aspirations? For Mr Kay h is 
all the fault of the Intend 
Revenue. The Revenue is 
staffed by tax inspectors and 
tax inspectors do not think 
strategically like economists. 
Transfer the function to the 
Treasury (whose own tiny tax 
policy division has just been 
disbanded as a separate entity) 
and Ministers could luxuriate 
in fiscal theory and the Grand 

There is something in thts, 
No doubt the Revenue would 
benefit from a little more 
outside blood. No doubt, too, 
organisations such as the Rev- 
enue can always improve their 
administrative efficiency. One 
notices, for instance, that al- 
though the Department of 
Health and Social Security has 
gone to some trouble to devise 
efficiency measures for its 
local social security ofices, 
there are no similar measures 
recorded in the Public Expen- 
diture White Paper for the 
Revenue. But it is surely going 
too far to blame fiscal conser- 
vatism all on the Revenue. 
Grand resigns have not been 
lacking in the Government's 
discussions of economic pol- 
icy. The problem has been the 
perceived political obstacles. 

The history of tax reform in 
the present Parliament should 

act as a spur to the Conser- 
vatives as they ponder in their 
1 1 strategy groups the policies 
they want to put before the 
electorate for a third term. So 
will the conference-time bids 
by other political parties for 
the mantle of tax reformer. 
The reforms achieved by the 
Government are not inconsid- 
erable and certainly greater 
than they are widely given 
credit for. The reform of 
corporate taxation, for in- 
stance, which has brought the 
rate of corporation tax down to 
one of the lowest in the 
industrialised world by ending 
the favourable treatment of 
those comnpanies which hap- 
pen to be able to make use of 
investment allowances, has 
been fully as thorough as 
anything planned by the 

But some other tax initia- 
tives have at an early stage run 
up against pledges given in the 
beat of electoral battle which 
have made virtually impos- 
sible the kind of thorough- 
going reform of personal 
taxation proposed in the US. 
After a flying start in 1984 the 
further extension of the VAT 
base appeared to founder on 
election-time pledges not to 
tax food — though food is 
taxed to some degree or other 
in practically all other Euro- 
pean countries, and richer | 
households spend consid- 
erably more on food. 

It will be the task of the 
Tories* election strategists to 
think through their policies 
completely and ensure that the 
Party rhetoric is fully consis- 
tent with them. The present 
policies are broadly speaking 
the right ones, arid the US 
experience and the British 
Budgets of 1984 and 1986 
suggest that tax reform can 
even be popular. 


Last week in Harrogate, the 
Social Democrats dem- 
onstrated consideration to- 
wards their leader by rejecting 
a motion which wou|d have 
tied him to making propor-. 
tional representation a sticking 
point in any negotiations for a 
coalition in a hung pariiament 
Yesterday at Eastbourne the 
Liberals were not so trusting of 
Mr Steel. In passing a motion 
to reform the working prac- 
tices of parliament and White- 
hall, and to secure the 
maximum possible 

implementation of Alliance 
policies, the Liberal Assembly 
also declared that it did not 
want negotiations carried out 
by the party leader alone. 

The motion would oblige 
Mr Steel to conduct negotia- 
tions through a negotiating 
team which would include 
representatives elected by the 
parliamentary party (to which 
they would have to report back 
for approval during the nego- 
tiations) and to consult the 
party in the country through 
its national officers. 

Proportional representation 
was not mentioned, but every- 
one in the hall knew that 
proportional representation 
was what it was all about. 
Indeed in case there should be 
any doubt about this, Mr 
David Alton, the Liberal Chief 
Whip declared that the Lib- 
erals would not drop electoral 
reform in bartering for seats in 
the Cabinet “PR is itself a

In which event, who knows 
what Dr Owen might do? 

He has said that if there had

he not, therefore, accept some 
vague agreement about a 
movement towards PR, if he 
could get foe essence of what 
he wanted? And might this not 
leave Mr Steel out in foe cold? 

It is unlikely. Mr Steel's 
action in putting up Mr Alton 
to embrace a motion which 
they knew could not be de- 
feated is best interpreted in the 
light of the principle: if you 
can’t beat them, join them. As 
he likes to point out at

Last season's improvement 
in the conduct of British 
football fans has not been 
sustained. At home and 
abroad, they have dem- 
onstrated a capacity for vi- 
olence which has shamed their 
clubs and their country. Only 
last weekend, the behaviour of 
Leeds supporters at Bradford 
and, ironically, of Cardiff fans 
at Exeter, exemplified the 
failure of the football league to 
cope with foe contagion. * 

One place where peace has 
broken out on Saturday after- 
noons is Luton. Women go out 
shopping, householders 
nearby in Kenilworth Road 
dig their gardens, fefoers take 
their children to home 
games..- By excluding visiting 
supporters from their ground, 
Luton Town has removed the 
focal point of confrontation. 
Yet their gate for this season's 
home match against Arsenal, 
for example, was only 100 or 
so smaller than lata yanj - 
because foe loss of 1,000 or 
2 000 away fens was offset by a 
rise in the number of local 
people who are drawn back to 
foe game by foe prospect of 
football without violence. 

These are early days. The 
Luton system under which

“proportional representation** 
from foe motion. But that 
apart, who knows what not 
only Mr Steel but even ‘foe ; 
representatives elected by the 
parliamentary party might ac- 
cept if a real share of power 
was finally within their grasp 
in a hung parliament? 

This is not, of course, some- 
thing that can be said outright 
now. Yesterday’s debate on 
what should happen after the 
election revealed a party still 
deeply worried about the ab- 
sence of a commitment to 
eventual merger between the 
parties. But there was also a; 
realistic acceptance on the part, 
of many, and expressed by' 
some, that in working for a 
victory but preparing for a 
pariiament in which they held 
foe balance of power, it would 
be absurd to reveal today 
exactly which matters the Lib- 
erals would be prepared to 
trade in a negotiation. 

Nobody could expect the 
Liberals, with their commit- 
ment over many decades to 
the cause of PR on grounds of 
national interest as well as 
party convenience, to say that 
it is tradable now. But to avoid 
revealing now what is tradable 
does not imply that any spe- 
cific policy, even PR, would be 
outside the area of trading in 
circumstances that cannot yet 
be foreseen. And that is 
particularly so if a second 
general election were to pro- 
duce another hung pariiament 

only chib members — of 
proven identity from a catch- 
ment area round the town — 
are admitted, has still to prove 
itself over a frill season. It is 
less than ideal, if only because 
it discriminates against 
neutrals and benign away 
supporters. Might a scheme be 
devised under which these 
could apply for special “good 
conduct** passes from their 
local clubs or police stations? 
For foe time being, however, 
foe Luton solution remains a 
brave and bold experiment 
which needs watching. 

It needs watching most of all 
by foe Football League 
management committee, 
whose own efforts to solve foe 
same problem have so far 
failed. It may seem drastic. 
But foe menace has become a 
matter of national concern and 
.there is a general consensus 
over foe need for drastic 
action. In these circumstances 
the Luton experiment has 
needed encouragement, not 
the reverse. By failing to show 
the flexibility which lies within 
its powers, foe management 
committee has scored a de- 
cisive own goal and look like 
foe only real losers of last 
night's cup tie. 

From Mr Mites Copeland (Sen) 
Sir, Lionel Bloch (September 16) 
makes several valid points on the 
subject of terrorism but misses the 
essentials. May 1 respectfully point 
out some of them? 

First, it is misleading to apply 
the epithet, "the terrorists’', to 
those who actually commit the 
acts which reach our newspaper* 
and television screens. These are 
rarely, if ewer, free agents; they are 
what those who recruit, train, 
equip and direct them call 
“bullets” (in Arabic, rijaaia) and, 
like the bullets they shoot out of 
their Kalashnikovs, they are 

Second, the publicized 
“demands” of the “the terrorists” 
are rarely more than tactical. 
There are two objectives behind 
all terrorism which, for purposes 
of counter-terrorist strategy, we 
classify as “international^. 

The first is to embarrass the 
authorities, or to show them up as 
weak and ineffectual, floundering 
helplessly within their democratic 
legal systems. 

The second is to provoke ir- 
rational response, such as, for 
example, our retaliations on 
Libya, from which those who use 
terrorism strategically gain far 
more than they gain from terror- 
ism itself The number of persons 
killed, foe cost of property dam- 
aged, .and foe amount of prestige 
and influence we have lost as foe 
result of our retaliations are many 
times over foe results of all 
terrori sm used against us to date. 

This is not to say that we should 
under no drains stances pay this 
price, because there am consid- 
erations besides and beyond the 
war against terrorism itself, but we 
must never forget that there ls one. 

Third, foe ultimate consid- 
eration which fbrmulaiors of na- 
tional policy must take into 
account is foie effect our counter- 
terrorist relations may have on 

Faulty arithmetic? 

From Mr J. D. Norman 
Sir, Any liberation movement 
which engages in foe actions we 
have witnessed in Karachi and 
Istanbul should now be dis- 
credited to such a degree that it 
should no longer be deemed to be 
a responsible partner in the search 
for a Middle Eastern settlement. 

All the more reprehensible, 
therefore, that Robert Fisk (fea- 
ture, September 8) should write an 
apologia for the Palestinian cause, 
whilst desperately seeking to dis- 
tance himself from acts which owe 
everything to foe Nazi cult of 

fallmimgei and nihilism A _■ _ 

- For Fisk, • foe massacres m- 
Istanbul and Karachi are justified 
by an atrocity committed 38 years 
ago (Deir Yassin) and. in some 
way, provide the ferment and 
impetus for a settlement which 
will accommodate the aspirations 
of Palestinians and Israelis. But 
these aspirations are, in feet, 
asymmetrical and oppositionaL 
The PLO declares that it wants the 
destruction of foe Jewish State; the 
Israelis nothing less than 

de jure recognition of Israel and 
p eace wit h foeArab world. 

We are' "confronted by an 
“Arabism” which insists, too, that 
foe displacement of Palestinians is 
a greater crime against humanity 

Operations delayed 

From Dr B. J. Boughton 
Sir, Jill Sbennan (September 9) 
describes current NHS waiting 
lists of more than three years for 
hip operations, and a situation 
where more than a quarter are 
now being carried out by the 
private health sector. 

Throughout a working life of 40 
years, British citizens contribute 
tens of billions in taxation to 
support foe NHS. For many of 
them, their only call upon NHS 
services may be a hip operation. 

None of us chooses our diseases 
and the NHS was created to 
remove the inequities of in health 
amongst us. After a lifetime of 
taxation, it is disgraceful that 
some people should have to wait 
years for such operations. 

. Perhaps Mr Fowler should tell 
us what we can or cannot expect 
from the NHS in return for our 
taxes and explain why hip opera- 
tions and perhaps other items of 
service are no longer part of foe

Heads or tails 

From Mr Andrew Sewell

of a traditional tin of these biscuits

The need to spread foe benefits 
as widely as possible, coupled with 

Gergy stipends 

From Canon W. B. Wilkinson 
Sir. The tetter in today’s Times 
(September 19) from foe Rev 
Mark L Hill-Tout comes rather 
from the heart than the head. I 
take foe point that an 8 2 per cent 
increase in stipend makes one 
think, when the Chancellor is 
pleading with us alL for foe sake of 
1 foe country and employment, not 
to go beyond about 2.5 per cent, 
the rate of inflation. Apart from 
that, his leoer is rather misleading. 

last year my stipend was £7,200 
7 the diocesan rate. Of this, foe 
income tax inspector agreed that 2 
had necessary expenses of £1,879 
tojirovjde and run my car for 

our ongoing conflict with the 
USSR While Soviet strategists 
have publicly deplored terrorism, 
they have covertly encouraged 
international terrorism, in general, 
and they have been quick to 

exploit our reactions to it. 

As Moscow's neo-Leninists see 
their conflict with us, they hope to 
win not by their strengths but by 
our weaknesses, not by their gains 
but by our losses, not from their 
winning friends but from our 
losing them. 

In Washington, those in the 
■ intelligence community who have 
had actual experience love de- 
visfcti methods of counter-terror- 
ism that have proven effective in 
the United States, but we have 
been restrained in our use of them 
abroad — or reluctant to give foe 
ClA and other security agencies 
credit for them after they hare 
been effectively employed — be- 
cause they are necessarily as 
clandestine as is international 
terrorism itself and therefore win 
no points with foe general public 
in President Reagan’s ongoing 
popularity campaign. 

Tins need not be the case here in 
Britain. Here, after all, you do 
have plenty of genuine experts — 
by wtuch I mean members of your 
security agencies who have ac- 
tually met and talked to terrorists 
and their backers, who understand 
their motivations and ways of 
thinking, who have spent time in 
refugee camps and other places 
where terrorist organizers find and 
recruit their “bullets", who have 
lived and worked “in the field" 
and who have studied the problem 
of terrorism with the cool 
objectivity of doctors dealing with 
a typhoid epidemic.

Student loans 

From Dr B. E. Davison 
Sir, At this time of year foe “high 
street” banks are advertising 
widely and somewhat uninhib- 
itedly to attract foe custom of 
October's crop of new undergrad- 
uate students. 

Whilst this may be under- 
standable, it is surely irresponsible . 
of them to use the easy availability 
of personal loans and overdrafts as 
part of their advertising strategy. 
Most higher education lecturers 
have encountered students whose 
need to repay such loans has 
interfered with their studies and, 
as a consequence has impaired 
their career prospects- Indeed, 
lecturers have brought to the 
attention of this association cases 
in which students* . examinat ion 
failures may, at least in part, be 
attributed to their taking part-time 
work to pay for loans inadvisedly 

We trust that foe banks will 
reconsider their strategies and 
both in foeir practice and advertis- 
ing will take a more responsible 
approach to foe consequences of 
student debt.

A golfing rebuff 
to Taiwanese 

From Mr R. J. Priestley 
Sir, Your readers may have seen 
an item in the sports pages 
(September IS) indicating that 
Taiwan. Republic of China, has 
withdrawn from foe Dunhill Golf 
Championships at St Andrews 
later this month because “foe 
British Government will not allow 
their national flag to be flown in 
this 16-nations event" 

This small article highlights one 
of foe major peculiarities which 
results from foe application of 
current policy vis-a-vis the non* 
recognition in a formal sense of 
Taiwan. Republic of China. 

Not to allow foe flag of a nation 
to be flown with flags of other 
participating countries is to deny 
foe realities of foe existence of a 
thriving, economically advanced, 
prosperous and booming nation 
which, in foe context of the 
province of Taiwan, constitutes 
some 20 million people, with 
which the United Kingdom has a 
major multi-million-pound trad- 
ing position. 

Another aspect which may in- 
terest readers is that, prior to my 
pa>ing a short private visit to foe 
Republic of China this summer, 
information was sought from the 
consular section of the Foreign 
Office as to current policy with 
regard to formal recognition and 
representation of the interests in 
Taiwan of UK citizens. No letter 
was received in return explaining 
foe position. 

In the context of what may be 
deemed a very negative relation- 
ship with a friendly. pro-Western, 
stable and independent state, wjfo 
whom close trading ties are main- 
tained. foe question as to why 
there appears to be total non- 
recogniuon of the Republic of 
China as a nation and as an entity, 
extending now to a ban on foe use 
of foe national flag, is worthy of a 

Surely the time is ripe for review 
of such an unrealistic policy and 
practice, which does not concord 
wjfo foe unarguable existence of a 
pro-Western, democratic, friendly 
nation in the Pacific area, with one 
of the highest standards of living 
in Asia and which is very glad to 
welcome visitors to its shores in a 
hospitable way. Rebuffs of this 
sort do not make for increased 
international understanding.

make of foe scheme — as opposed 
to other options — in a particular

SEPTEMBER 24 1927 

Gene Tunncy (1898-1978) twice 
fought and beet Jack Dempsey 
(1895-1983) - in 1926 and on 
September 22. 1927 — _ the 

celebrated “long count" fight. 
Tunney often said that he could 
have survived without the extra 
seconds. In 7928. after successfully 
defending hut title against Tom 
Heeney, he retired from the ring. 



Tunney retained foe World's 
Heavyweight Championship at 
Soldiers' Field. Chicago, on Thurs- 
day night, when he scored a 
Convincing victory over Dempsey 
on points, the fight going foe foil 
distance of 10 rounds. 

Dempsey has always been essen- 
tially a fighter. Tunney beat him at 
Philadelphia by out b oxi n g him. At 
Chicago Tunney 1 once again out- 
boxed Dempsey, but he finished by 
outfighting him too. and chat in 
spite of being knocked down and 
taking a count of nint- in the 
seventh round. With regard to that 
count there has been some discus- 
sion, and a Reuter message an- 
nounces that Mr L. Flynn. 
Dempsey's manager, has stated 
that he will appeal against the 
referee's decision. 

Whar happened was that Demp- 
sey. having floored his man, stood 
over him . . . and the count was 
not begun until Dempsey had 
obeyed the referee’s order to retire 
to the furthest comer of the ring. 
In accordance with the Illinois 
Boxing Rule the count does not 
begin until the combatant who has 
knocked down his opponent does 
move to the furthest comer, and 
Dempsey wasted four seconds be- 
fore he did so. Had he been quicker 
be might have scored a knock-out 
or finished his man before the end 
of the round. As it was, Tunney. 
though temporarily ehmned. got 
up and finished the round. The 
latter stated after the fight that be 
could have got up at the count of 
five, but that he obeyed his 
second’s signal to remain down 
longer before continuing the fight 

Dempsey lost gallantly, and was 
beaten by superior boxing and 
better ring-craft. Tunney, with the 
exception of that seventh round, 
had the better of the fight all 
through, is a worthy champion, 
and one who may retain the title 
for some years to come. 


...ROUND 3. — Dempsey 
scarcely seemed himself. He was 
moving slowly and falling into 
clinches at every opportunity. 
He seemed short of wind as he 
began the round, but Tunney 
was fresh and calm. Dempsey 
continued to follow the champi- 
on round and round, which 
proceeding ended in a clinch. 
Here Dempsey scored with a 
series of heavy blows to the 
body, which he followed with 
several hooks to the back of 
Tunney’s neck. Tunney once 
again found an opening and 
landed heavily on Dempsey's 
face. Some stiff in-fighting, and 
when they separated Tunney 
caught his opponent on the face 
with some light jabs. Dempsey's 
tactics were obriously to ham- 
mer Tunney’s ribs, but the latter 
appeared undisturbed. Demp- 
sey. on the other hand, was 
blowing. Tunney thus won the 
first three rounds. 

. . . ROUND 7. — Tunney 
led off and opened foe scoring 
with a left and right to 
Dempsey’s head. The ex-cham- 
pion retaliated quickly and with 
a left and right he knocked 
Tunney down. Tunney stayed 
there, amidst breathless excite- 
ment, for a count of nine, but 
this was only to regain his 
breath. Dempsey, stimulated by 
his success, followed his oppo- 
nent viciously when he got up 
but, by holding him off, Tunney 
gradually recovered. Dempsey 
immediately got him against the 
. ropes and pounded him vicious- 
ly in foe stomach. The ex- 
champion’s fierce attack 
aroused tremendous excite- 
ment. which was increased 
when Tunney began to retreat 
round the ring. Dempsey rushed 
after him and landed on his 
neck. Tunney had a narrow 
escape when Dempsey, with a 
sudden burst of energy, brought 
his right under several times for 
hard body punches which he 
followed with a powerful right to 
Tunney’s jaw. This was 
Dempsey's round. 

. . . ROUND 10. - After a 
few exchanges in the final round 
Tunney’s chest was seen to be 
covered in blood - but it was 
Dempsey's. Tunney made a 
furious onslaught on his oppo- 
nent, rocking him with a swift, 
stabbing right to the jaw, and 
then following up with alternate 
right and left to almost the same 
spot. With two rights in succes- 
sion to Dempsey's face he added 
still more points. 

Dempsey stood up better than 
he might have been expected to, 
but the best he could do was to 
clinch. When they came togeth- 
er this time the contrast was 
even more striking than before 
the fight began. Tunney had his 
opponent beaten and practically 
knocked out as the bell rang,

Science report 

Time for a message on your wrist watch 

By Keith Hindley 


Ueetenancy of Nottinghamshire 
v,: Gordon Hobday, Lord 
L k u tenant of Nottinghamshire, 
presided at a luncheon of the 
Deputy Lieutenants held yes- 
terday at Nbttingham Univer- 
sity. Mr Arthur Sandfond was 
among those present. 



The Speaker, President of the 
Commonwealth Parliamentary 
Association, and members of 
the executive committee 
(United Kingdom branch) were 
hosts at a reception held last 
night at the Hotel Inler-Conti- 
nental in honour of delegates to 
the Commonwealth • Par-, 
liamentary Conference. 

Electronic circuits for the 
world's first wrist-watch visual 
radiopager, the Receptor, have 
been successfully tested by 
Plessey Senricondnctors. 

The device receives and 
stores short messages and 
bleeps the wearer. Up to 10 
mesnges of 10 digits each can 
be decoded at any one time and 
they can be read off at wOl on 
an alphanumeric display. 

For prod action watches, 
messages wfll be telephoned to 
a central office, which in tarn 
will arrange immediate broad- 
cast via sub-channels on local 
FM radio transmissions. 

Plessey says its bipolar 
ctrcait represents the first FM 
radio receiver capable of mra- 
tatnrizatioQ into a chip small 

enough .to fit into a wrist 
watch. The company has also 
developed the companion de- 
coder chip. Field testing of the 
circuits on three-foot diameter 
“breadboards” during the last 
four months has proved “very 
satisfactory in all respects”. 

The original idea for the 
radiopager came from AT & E 
Laboratories, of Beaverton. 
Oregon, in the United States. 
The firm selected Plessey. for 
its work in developing micro- 
circuits using gyrator filters, 
which eliminate die need for 
the bulky arils foand in most 
FM radio receivers bat easily 
home in on the low powered 
paging signal of FM 

Once every six minates the 

device scans the 76-108 MHz 
FM radio range for a second 
looking for messages. If one is 
waiting, It is stored in milli- 
second. At die same time the 
conventional quartz natch 
chip is updated, including any 
cha nge in time zone. 

By spending most of its time 
switched off, the pager should 
operate for more than a year 
powered by a single con- 
ventional watch battery. Nei- 
ther Plessey nor AT & E 
intend to venture into watch 
production but four large 
watch mannfacturers are al- 
ready interested. 

AT & E has come np with a 
clever idea because it .makes 
use of telephones, FM radio 
stations and watchmakers -

/ TTV UK- - W 7TI 

on September 15 on board his 
yacht in New Zealand. He was 

Born in Southampton, the 
son of a solicitor, he studied 
horticulture at Reading 

He had varied experiences 
during the war. A few months’ 
service as engineer of a con- 
verted yacht employed on 
anti-submarine patrol - with- 
out any technical qualification 
for the position beyond tire 
former possession of a motor- 
bicycle - earned him a recom- 
mendation for a commission. 
But the ensuing medical ex- 
amination led to his discharge 
.from the Navy. 

Thereafter he worked in a 
factory and on a farm, spend- 
ing his non-working hours on 
the restoration; with his wife’s 
help, of.-a ruined Tudor cot- 
tage that was to be their home. 

Out of the dereliction, as he 
explains in / Left the Navy 
(1946), they created an earthly 
paradise of cabbages and hon- 
ey. However, he became 
vaguely dissatisfied with the 
results of his efforts, so his 
wife sent him off on occasion- 
al trips down Channel as a 
member of the civilian- 
manned ferry service which 
delivered newly-built snail 
craft from builders' yards to 
operational bases. 

Together the couple then 
prepared for their voyage 
around the globe. Wanderer 
HI was designed -but not built 

- by Hiscock. “ Amateur-de- 
signed boats are usually great 
failures. Boats are like houses: 
it pays to have an architect”. 

On July 24, 1952. the 
Hiscocks set out from Yar- 
mouth, Isle of Wight. The 
route was by way of the West 
Indies, the Panama Canal, 
Tahiti. Samoa, Hji, New Zea- 
land, Australia. South Africa, 
Ascension and the Azores. . 

Crossing the Pacific, a sail 
of 4,000 miles and no sight of 
land, Hiscock’s preliminary 
doubts were stilled by hi* 
wife's remarkr “Never mind. 
If you were a daily-breader 
working in London, you 
would just now be trying to 
force your way into the crowd- 
ed Bakerloo, and a hoarse 
voice would be 
shouting.-Mind the doors.’ “ 

- They encountered dangers: 
a 40-minute fight with a half- 
ton spearfish off the west coast 

awash on the 2.400 mile tripin 
heagy seas from the Cocos 
Island to Mauritius. But on 
the whole they were lucky. 
During the long stretches of 
routine sailing, they alternated 
watches of up to three hours at 
a time, with periods of relief 
when the weather allowed the 
ship to steer herself. 

Hiscock's occasional des- 
patches for The Times were 
avidly read, and afterwards 
published as a booklet ' t 

The voyage lasted three, 
years. *Tve proved to my 
satisfaction that the world is 
round", he said on their 
return. That year - 1956 - he 
was named Yachtsman of the 

Three years later they set 
out on their second circum- * 
navigation, completing the 
voyage in 1962. This time on 
their return they decided to 
make their new yacht. Wan- 
derer IV, their home. “My 
work is afloat, and so it seems 
perfectly reasonable that we 
should live permanently 
afloat”. They sold their house 
at Yarmouth and proved their 
new ship by taking it across ' 
tite Atlantic, up the west coast 
of America and on -to New ■ 
Zealand to “settle down". • ■» *

Floyd on Food (BBC2) is 
presented by a man who is to 
. the’ kitchen what Patrick 
. Moore is to stars, David 

■ Bellamy to trees and James 
Burke to die international 
cutaway. With ruffled hair, a 
lopsided bow-tie and a peren- 
nial glass of wine, Keith Floyd 

■ rips the head off a prawn, 
slobbers away at an octopus, 
burns his finger on die tnnir W 

-£nd all the while thoroughly 
Enjoys himself. 

This is food as she is cooked 
and eaten. It is also television 
as she is filmed, for Floyd 
' pursues a symbiotic relation- 
ship with his cameraman, 

. Richard Elfiott, whom he is 
always bossing to “come to 
me" or “back to my plate". 
Purists might find toe result 
self-indulgent and dishevelled 
but, in smacking his lips at the 
' contents of a plate rather than 
Its setting, Floyd brings some 
, much-needed fhn to our 
screens. Sardines become pil- 
. chards after AVi inches; after 
i half an boor Keith Floyd could 
■ become an addiction. 

- Which is more than coaid be 
said for Issues of Law (BBC2), 
a new series about our glorious 
.legal system. Presented in 
immod ulated tones by Mi- 
chael Molynenx, a barrister as 
grey as his soft the first 
programme was seriously te- 
dious. “To a spectator at toe 
back of the court it can all look 
rather boring”, said Molynenx 
without attempting to contra- 
dict himself as he strode with 
resounding steps through the 
Royal Courts from whence all 

.frit be had fled. 

The first person interviewed 
was a Belgian lawyer who 
confessed be did not under- 
stand the British common law 
system. It was then pot to 
- luminaries like Lord Denning 
and John Mortimer to defend 
our adversarial tradition. As 
Lead Hails ham, the most se- 
nior of these litigious petti- 
foggers, put it to a Frenchman: 
“You're trying to find out toe 
truth. We're simply trying' to 
find out whether toe prosecu- 
tion has proved its case."

the abuse of Steven Berkoff. 

This is Bennett's second 
{day about Kafka, and you 
could describe both of them as 
exercises in anti-biography. 
The myth is that Kafka was 
obliged to waste his creative 
energies in an accident insur- 
ance office, and practise his art 
against toe opposition ’ of a 
brutal, philistine father. In 
The Insurance Man, Bennett 
challenged the first item by 
showing him as rather good at 
the job and perhaps even 
enjoying it (a German firm is 
now in the process of publish- 
ing his collected accident- 
claim reports). 

In the new piece, Bennett 
moves on to toe second item 
and brings back old Hermann 
Kafka, cleaning out his ear- 
wax with a toothpick and 
determined to clear his name 
even at toe expense of reveal- 
ing his son's puny genitalia to 
the literary world. Why should 
writers always get away with 
patricide? And, as an insur- 
ance man, Kafka should be 
well aware that “the injured 

party always exaggerates”. 

So much for Bennett's head- 
on challenge to literary myth. 
There is a great deal more than 
that, too much in fact, to the 
play. It takes place in a 
Pirandeilian time- warp, bring- 
ing Kafka and his parents into 
the suburban living-room of a 
modem biographer who sees 
his chance of making a reputa- 
tion by claiming Hermann as 
a model father. At this point, 
toe title member takes on 
another meaning. As the most 
personal possession of a most 
secretive artist, it supplies 
Hermann with an invincible 
lever. But it also represents toe 
kind of trivia — along with 
Auden's unwashed- trousers 
and EM. Forster's boyfriends 
— on which biographers seize 
in order to cut great men down 
to size. 

Bennett's biographer Syd- 
ney (Geoffrey Palmer), how- 
ever, is also an insurance man: 
a factor which lines him up 
with Kafka just as you have 
got him marked down as a 
literary parasite: This strikes 
me as a self-cancelling proce- 
dure; and the picture is further 
complicated by the presence 
of Max Brod (Kafka's first 
biographer), Sydney’s non-lii- 
erary wife (who inexplicably 
fells for Kafka) and her be- 
wildered old father — the only 
Kafkaesque figure in the play, 
who periodically potters in on 
his walking-frame to declare 
“Someone’s been telling lies 
about me”. 

The dominant impression is 
that Bennett has set up a 

situation so dense with asso- 
ciative echoes and critical 
ideas that h is virtually impos- 
sible for any plot tb move 
through it. One strand of plot 
depends on Brad's publication 
of Kafka's writings in defiance 
of his instructions to bum 
them. Much comic effort goes 
into hiding away stacks of 
London Library volumes 
from the author's gaze; but, 
when Brad’s treachery finally 
comes to light, that line of 
action simply reaches a dead 
end. Mr and Mrs Kafka arrive 
tike Pirandeilian ref u gees, two 
characters in search of an 
author. But. as biography is 
being discredited, they get 
nowhere; indeed, Hermann 
finally realizes that it is only as 
a bad parent that he has any 
chance of being remembered 

There is a replay of The 
Trial (for which William Dud- 
ley ingeniously transforms toe 
walking-frame into toe dock), 
but nothing derisive comes of 
it- There are short-lived 
spasms of action, involving 
tossing embarrassments and 
jealousies, leading finally to a 
thunderous endorsement of 
the original myth. 

My feeling is that Bennett 
has taken more on board than 
he can deal with. He is 
absolutely in command- dur- 
ing toe prelude, where a self- 
dramatizing Kafka delivers 
his dying wishes to a scep- 
tically Yiddish Brod, who 
counters them by forecasting 
the Nazis' book-burning.

woman of highly uncertain age around 
whom toe plot devolves. , 

“Sometimes you read a senpj and find 

I it funm" Craven explains, and I then 
start work on it and find it s not formy at 
all. But with The A/flpwrair

Imagine a woman who tells her prospec- 



tive husband that she is 31 rather than 
36, and who says she has always kept her 
1 9-year-old son in ignorance of his age 

‘in case of necessity'.” ' 

Unlike Agatha POsfcct, Gemma Cra- 
ven herself sees no need to be secretive 
either about being 36 or, more to the 
point, about having a 1 9-year-old career 
to prove it Only her Press cuttings 
contrive to suggest otherwise, with more 
romance than truthfulness casting the 
voung actress who played Cinderella, m 
Bryan Forbes's 1976 film The Slipper 
and the Rose, in a real-life tale of rags to 
riches. “H always seemed” she laughs, 
-as if people wanted to believe that Td 
been washing my smalls in toe local 
launderette and was suddenly plucked 
from obscurity to become a film star, 
when in fact before I made The Slipper 
and the Rose . Td not only already 
appeared pn television several times, 
and starred in a show in the West End, 
but I’d also been in the business for ten 
years and had been thinking about it for 
ten years before that." 

She was bom m Dublin, into a family 
toat was definitely not theatrical. “You 
should hear my -father sing”, she says 
darkly. Nevertheless anacting caroerwas 
what she always wanted and, by the time 
she was 1 1 and toe family had moved to 
England, she was attending a stage school 
pvcrv evening. A stint as an assistant

Pennies from Heaven and Wagner, they 
suggest toat even such lavish praise as 
that of the critic who described her as the 
“closest thing Britain has produced to a 
real Broadway star in some decades” 
does not quite do fuD justice to her 

“Funnily enough”. Gemma Craven 
recalls, “the only real period of un- 
employment I’ve ever experienced was 
after The Slipper and the Rose. Ifa film is 
successful directors automatically think 
you're working already, that you won't 
do anything bur a leading role, or that 
you'll cost too much money. And, for a 
long time after The Slipper, all the work I 
was offered was in toe same vein and I 
wouldn't take it. 1 didn't want to be 
Cinderella for ever." 

Pennies fivm Heaven certainty proved 
that (in the process provoking. such 
imaginatively shrill headlines as "The 
stripper and toe rose” from the tabloids), 
as well as establishing her as a television 
star famous enough to receive such 
popular accolades as guest appearances 
on The Morecambe and Wise Show and 
her very own This Is Your Life, featuring 
the requisite long-lost friends and rel- 
atives. “It was lovely”, she recalls 

But surely a far cry from toe National 
Theatre? “Oh, yes”, she says. “I suppose 
that son of tiling is slightly frowned upon 
here. But ! think I'm old enough and 
experienced enough by now to be 
accepted - and: who knows", she laughs, 
“maybe even to be taken seriously as

looking forward, the anach- 
ronistic comedy works beauti- 
fully. But not when it comes to 
looking back. 

There remains, of course, 
toe Bennett dialogue, which is 
as rich as ever in exquisitely 
turned domestic banalities 
and literary give-aways; and 
also in deft pastiche of toe title 
author — in particular one 
marvellous speech where 
Kafka responds to toe wife's 
seductive offer of chocolates 
with an exhaustive descrip- 
tion of every move she has 
made since coming into the

cringe, hands twisted together 
and jacket tightly buttoned to

dement gradually emerges as 
one realizes that this means he 
is having a good time. 

Richard Eyre's production 
does loving justice to the lines 
but puts so much energy into 
passages of stage action as to 
leave you grounded when 
debate takes over. Andrew 
Sachs's Brod is a splendidly 
eupeptic companion to toe 
sepulchial protagonist; Alison 
Steadman a voluptuous addi- 
tion to B 6 nnett’s gallery of 
suburban earth-mothers; and 
Jim Broadbent; no matter 
what he may claim fin- old 
Hermann's virtues and prow-

an ogre from toe moment he 
sets foot in toe room. 




Talk to Me 
New End 

One of toe saddest of dramatic 
spectacles is that or toe writer 
who trivializes a subject about 
which he feels deeply, not 
because he means to but 
because his writing lacks toe 
precision and detail to make it 
credible and moving. 

William Humble's play 
Talk to Meisan aridly written 
chamber debate about a young 
married architect called Mat- 
thew (Robert Daws) who is 
overtaken by depression. At 
first he thrashes about, 
wretchedly belligerent, able to 
make nothing of his con- 
dition. Later, infuriated by his 
wife's comfortless sympathy, 
and egged on by an easygoing 
female colleague who has her 
traumas behind her, he agrees 
to see a psychoanalyst. The 
psychoanalyst is called Dr 
Harris, and he interrogates 
Matthew with brooding self- 

He is acted with silver- 
haired quietude by Alan Do- 
bie and, as be and Matthew 
play Socrates and Plato, the 
evening slips irrevocably into 
high unintentional feme. Al- 
though Harris asks questions 
interminably, usually of a 

Marlborough Fine 

With so many British artists 
with Polish names around at 
the moment, it is probably 
necessary immediately to de- 
fine: Andrzej Jockowski, who 
is having a show of recent 
work at Marlborough Fine Art 
until Friday, is the one who 
was not born in Scotland 
(Wales, actually, though he 
disclaims any significant Cel- 
tic connections) and who 
paints mainly . dark-toned, 
rather brooding compositions 
drawn from a sort of pool of 
private imagery which one can 
only call for want of a better 
word. Symbolist. 

He himself denies the label 
or at least mistrusts it — 
certainly in so fer as it might 
be taken to imply some sort of 
exact literary programme and 
lead spectators to expect a 
pattern of precise equiva- 
lences. Like Pinter — though 


Hanson Quartet 

British Music 
Information Centre 

To hear one's own music 
dissected and criticized in 
front of an audience by a 
group of performers may be a 
touch humiliating, but salu- 
tary lessons about putting into 
practice what has hitherto 
existed only in the mind's ear 
can be learnt And they were 
in this Society for toe Promo- 
tion of New Music workshop 
as toe patient amiable and 
expert Hanson Quartet in- 
quired about toe meaning of a 
slur (was it a tie, a bowing 
mark?) or questioned the fea- 
sibility of playing a hushed 
slow passage with the wood of 
the bow. 

In general both David Col- 
lins and Robin Gosnall re- 
acted positively to such 
points, though on occasion 
they stuck obstinately to their 

Collins's Nocturnes (his sec- 
ond string quartet) seemed in 
its first movement to be a little 
unsure of its purpose and even 
its own dialectic, for all its 

impressive idiomatic touches. 
As if it were a deliberate 
reaction the second move- 
ment by sharp contrast 
planted its roots firmly in toe 
territories of Debussy, Ravel | 
and early Messiaen with its 
obsessive, syncopated parallel 
motion, while toe finale, toe 
movement that ' began with 
that curious col legno effect, 
was the most successful 
touched by an instinctive 
lyrical fed and by a real sense 
of its own direction. 

At just 24, Gosnall is sepa- 
rated from Collins by very 
nearly 10 years, and it showed 
both in the ingenuousness of 
his Quartet Movement and in 
its conspicuously romantic 
idiom. There are echoes of 
Britten's Third Quartet here, 
with lovely nostalgic tunes 
punctuated by toe odd violent 

Indeed it was an excess of 
such rhetoric that betrayed 
Gosnall's relative inexperi- 
ence, though there can be little 
doubt that with such readiness 
to express himself naturally it 
is only a matter of time before

Heavy mecal? A farcical Soy's 
Own aberration incorporating 
all the worst elements of rock- 
music cliche, wrapped up in a 
package of silly costumes, 
volume-worship and lyrical 
and symbolical misogyny. We 
have all heard something of 
the sort, and yet this is to deny 
glibly toe merit of an entire 
sub-genre on toe grounds of 
distaste for some of its more 
obvious characteristics. Simi- 
lar treatment was being meted 
out to country music not so 
long ago. 

Yet once you scratch be- 
neath the bizarre stylistic 
codes of HM. most of which 
function to protect toe music 
from being co-opted by critics 
and toe over-25s (which 
would swiftly render it im- 
potent as such a genuine 
instrument of teenage rebel-

Dressed plainly in T-shirts 
and tattered jeans, and all 

sporting long, unkempt hair, 
they bashed their, way through 
the set, with heads, arms and 
guitars flailing like monsters 
in a puppet show. They have 
one favourite riff - a cross 
between Black Sabbath's 
“Paranoid" and Led Zep- 
pelin’s “Communication 
Breakdown”, but played at 
twice toe speed of either song 
— and one theme: death. The 
backdrop was a view of serried 
lines of tombstones stretching 
into the distance. 

Unfortunately, the rhythm | 
guitarist and vocalist James 
Hetfield had injured bis wrist j 
and the inclusion of an extra, 
deputy guitarist, although an ! 
able player, diluted the inten- 
sity of the performance. But 
they still showed that as agents 
of musical catharas they have 
few peers, as they carelessly 
piled up songs one on top of 
another in toe best punk 

While rock now proceeds in 
many directions along an 
increasingly sophisticated 
grid, there are still raw ele- 
ments from a variety of 
sources active at its core. 
There is certainly more to 
Metallica than a series of 
empty macho postures to be 
lumped in with blanket, 
kneejerk critiques.

elaborate explanations, he 
doubts whether his explana-

believe this: their works seem 
to trawl in some land of

There can be no question, 
though, that on a technical 
level Jackowski knows exactly 
what he is doing. He has 
sometimes been compared to 
toe older John Brilany (Jack- 
owski is now 39) but, though 
they both have a repertoire of 
personal imagery which per- 
vades their work, tempera-

The Fir Tree, with its sleeping

but otherwise, with his strange

entangled (though not at all 
anguished-seeming) figures, 
he seems to be off entirely on 
his own. The meaning of the 
work is not really accessible to 
intellectual analysis: it has to 
be experienced viscerally. 
And, so taken, his paintings 
are very hard to forget. 

Also, he seems to work best 
on a relatively large scale, and 
as the result of long and 
detailed labour his skkehes 
and drawings are much less 
interesting than what they 
lead to. Nor does he show any 
sign of running out of steam:

Kremlin frees I East- West relatio ns net a hand I 

companies to 

foreign trade 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 
As part of Mr Mikhail 

Gorbachov s continuing prx>- 
gramme of economic reform, 
uie Kremlin has unveiled a 
for-ranging liberal cation of its 
foreign trade which will end 
"* monopoly exercised for 
decades by the Foreign Trade 
Ministry and give many large 
concerns wider freedom to do 
business with the West. 

Under the new regulations, 
which will come into effect on 
January l next year, more 
• than 20 ministries and 70 
enterprises will be granted the 
fight to enter foreign markets 

Western economic experts 
said ihe move appeared de- 
signed to increase the compet- 
itiveness of Soviet 
manufacturing exports, shift 
the emphasis from raw 
materials and enenuragff the 
setting up of joint ventures 
wuh foreign firms. They de- 
scribed the reform as com- 
plementing the Soviet 
Government's recent ex- 
pression of interest in joining 
Gait, the 92-nation Genera] 
Agreement on Tariffs and 

A decree published yes- 
terday heralded the end of the 
Foreign Trade Ministry's 
monopoly on Soviet foreign 

trade introduced soon after 
the 1917 revolution. 

The Soviet share in world 
trade does not meet the cur- 
rent level of the country's 
economic development or its 
demands, the decree said. 
“The export potential of 
manufacturing industries, 
above all mechanical en- 
gineering, is not being used 
in recent years. Western 
businessmen have com- 
plained with increasing vigour 
about the bureaucratic ob- 
stacles imposed by the large 
Foreign Trade Ministry, 
which has seen the total 
volume of trade under its 
amirol, increase to around 
£40 billion a year. 

According to unofficial es- 
timates provided by Western 
economic experts, the new 
reform will free about £4 
billion of that away from the 
ministry's direct control, with 
the percentage expected to 
grow as the balance of exports 
lilts away from the present 
top-heavy emphasis on raw 

But the new decree made 
clear that despite the lib- 
eralization, a degree of cen- 
tralized supervision will still 
be exercised. 

Cabinet angry over 
expulsion of Luton

Liverpool fans rioted. 

Among her proposals was 
that clubs should have their 
own membership scheme. Lu- 
ton is one of the few dubs 
strictly to follow her recom- 
mendations and has used 
membership cards as the way 
to exclude visiting supporters. 

Mr Tracey said that the 
Government was wa tching to 
gauge its effectiveness at 
eliminating hooliganism. “If 
we have to use the Luton 
method then so be iL Football 
is still on iriaL” 

Hie Football Association 
will consider whether Luton 
can play in the FA Cup at a 
meeting on October 8. 

Mr Jeffrey Archer, deputy 
chairman of the Conservative 
Parly, said yesterday:“What a 
mad world we live in when 
someone tries to do something 
positive about hoolig anism, 
they are themselves punished. 

Hooligans are currently 
ruining soccer for normal, 
civilised people and today's 
decision by the Football 
League in no way helps the 
cause of law and order. 

“The Football League could 
have shown so much more 
imagination. Why ban Luton? 
They could have treated 
Luton’s decision as an experi- 
ment and carefully monitored 
the results.”

> George Shultz, the US Sec- 
retary of State, at the UN, but 
there was no immediate word 
of any progress on the 
Daniloff affair. 

In his UN address, be said: 
“There is but one path to 
security — to destroy existing 
weapons instead of replacing 
them with new ones.” 

“The technology of destruc- 

tion must not be allowed to 
determine policy.” 

Mr Shevardnadze said he 
was authorized to state that 
the Soviet Union was pre- 
pared to sign at any time and 
in any place a treaty on a total 
prohibition of nuclear weapon 

“We are prepared to do so 
here at the United Nations, so 
that the entire world commu- 

nity could become part of this 

great act and a turning point in 
history is marked as a sign of 
respect for its will.” he said. 

“Words not matched by 
deeds are a false value. But 
words supported by deeds are 
a country's gold reserve:” 

He said the Soviet Union 
urged those who made pro- . 
nouncements in favour of 
eliminating nuclear weapons 

to follow up with practical 
deeds; otherwise, it was no 
more than a rhetorical mirage 
behind which loomed an al- 
together different policy. i 
Mr Shevardnadze said the! 
emphasis on verification was 
a worn-out curtain. There was 
broadly speaking no longer

Public spending 
running £1 Vibn 
ahead of target 

By Rodney Lord, Economics Editor 

Public spending in this finaa- ing provided for in pro- 
year is esti m a t ed to be w amm^ tc more rewlistir ii«n 
over-running the Gov- before, the reserve can be 

eminent's target by about £1% 
billion. The over-run is partly 
on local authority spending 
and partly on supply spending 
by central government. 

Recent trends in the public 
sector borrowing requirement 

suggest that borrowing may be 

no higher than forecast in 
spite of this over-run because 
of the buoyancy of revenue. 

But the over-run poses big 
problems For the public spend- 
ing survey now under way 
which will determine the 
Government's plans for next 

In discussions between the 
Environment Secretary, Mr 
Nicholas Ridley, and the 
Treasury Chief Secretary, Mr 
John MacGregor, it has al- 
ready been agreed that pro- 
vision for local government 
current spending will be in- 
creased next year by £33 

The Chancellor in his au- 
tumn statement will justify 
this increase on the grounds 
that the rise in planned local 
authority spending merely rec- 
ognizes the reality of what 
local councils are likely to 
spend. Given that the spend- 

' lower than previously allowed 

This argument is only cred- 
ible if the Government is seen 
to be maintaining control over 
public spending totals in the 
current year, and that makes 
the potential over-run particu- 
larly embarrassing. The Gov- 
ernment had hoped to be able 
to consolida te its newly-won 
reputation for control over 
public spending, achieved by 
under-shooting the target in 

It has decided against emer- 
gency cuts in the current year 
which are a notoriously in- 
efficient form of expenditure 
control But the potential 
over-run has put additional 
pressure on Mr MacGregor's 
discussions with his spending 

Recognizing the difficulty of 
sticking to the overall public 
spending totals as agreed at 
Cabinet in July, a number of 
bilateral deals have been done 
between the Treasury and 
spending departments during 
July and August before the 
main series of discussions 

Among the difficult out- 

standing issues are energy 
prices, where the Energy Sec- 
retary, Mr Peter Walker, is 
holding out for no change, or a 
cut, after the fall in oil prices 
since last year. 

Health spending, which 
feces the burden of a growing 
number of elderly patients, is 
another problem area, as is 
social security, where the So- 
cial Services Secretary, Mr 
Norman Fowler, is arguing for 
what be regards as more 
realistic assumptions about 
the course of inflation and 

Cabinet's agreement in July 
was to use “best endeavours" 
to achieve the totals inherited 
from the previous round, 
rather than to endorse them 
unequivocally. But the Gov-, 
eminent is not expected to 
increase the totals, at least 
overtly. Maximum pressure 
will be applied by the Trea- 
sury. backed by the Prime 
Minister, to offset any nec- 
essary increases by savings 

The Treasury is anxious not 
to increase the level of pro- 
ceeds from privatization 
which are already projected at 
£4% billion a year. But if 
necessary there is some scope 
for doing so. 

Late crowds rush 
for shares in TSB 

The £13 billion sale of 
shares in the Trustee Savings 
Bank doses at 10 am today 
and a last-minute rush by 
investors yesterday to hand in 
applications spilled over into 
long queues outside some 
bank offices.

trained bank staff are de a ling

Renault, the loss-making

of Japanese cars, in a new boot 
of protectionism.

restricted to 3 per cent of the 
French market and Renault 
believes this help win be 
needed almost indefinitely. 

The French Government re-

countries. Japanese car sales

Italy where sales of only 2,000

He added that the company

the Nissan factory at Wash-

Renault has made strenuous 
efforts to reduce its losses 
which in the last two years 
have totalled about £23 bflfim 
and has cut its workforce by 
30,000 in semi years. 

This year the French Gov- 
ernment will provide support 
of about £500 million for the 
debt-ridden company but the 
new Renault chairman, M

Lasmo’s investment profit 
outstrips operations yield 

The foil in the world o3 
price has meant that one of 
Britain's leading independent 
ofi companies is making more 
money from its shareholding 
in one of its competitors than 
by producing oil from the 
North Sea. 

Lasmo, one of the com- 
panies fonned thnftig the orig- 
inal North Sea oil boom, 
reported yesterday that its 
after-tax profits for the first 
half of this year Here £65

interim dividend this year, bat 
hopes by the end af the year to 
mak e a dividend payment, 
although how dose that will be

The foil in profits is almost 
exactly in fine with tbe fad in 
the oQ price. A yw ago Lasmo

fect of the world oil price on

By David Young, Energy Correspondent 

The Department of Energy 
is now bring asked to bring 
forward the date for repay- 
ment of Advanced Petroleum 
Revenue Tax which affects 

many nf flip ifldgppmtente. 

It is is also racier pressure 
from the Organization of 
Petroleum Exporting Con- 
tries to co-opende in reducing 
worid crude outprt to send tbe 
price bade upwards. 

Tim majority of Lasmo’s 
half-year profits came from its 
30 per cent bolding in Enter- 
prise CKL 

Lasmo apptired the Enter- 
prise holding from KTZ in 
exchange for shares and 
yesterday's figures reinforce 
the wisdom of that deal. Using 
the tax advantages acquired 
with the Enterprise holding, 
Lasmo made £3.7 millfon 
profit from its Enterprise 
boldiag while its own opera- 
tions yielded £25 nridionL 
The figures win also in- 
crease speculation that BIZ'S 
ultimate plan is to establish its 
own energy mmpany incor- 
porating its Lasmo holdings as 
well as its existing North Sea 

RTZ is already recruiting 
from BP and Mr Chris 
Green tree, the Lasmo chief 

executive, and several of his 
colleagues are bring widely 
tipped as potential members of 
the RTZ energy team. 

New ml discoveries in 
Inrfnyigeia and acqmstions in 
Gabos ami in North America 
mean that Lasmo will stay out 
of the North Sea for the next 
three years or so unless world 
ofl prices rise substantially. 

The company will drill one 
well later this year in the 
southern sector of the North 
Sea where ft expects to con- 
firm substantial gas deposits, 
bat staffing has been trimmed 
by about 30 per cent and

I -nemo has followed other 
independent oil comp a ni es — 
apart from Enterprise — in not 
paying an interim dividend. 
The company view is that in 
tbe tight of the uncertainty 
over tbe future of worid oil 
prices it would be imprudent to 
do so. However, because 
Enterprise has paid an interim 

dividend, Lasmo has reaped 
the reward.

Mexico rocks bankers 
over debt repayments 


Front Alan Robinson, Mexico City 

The announcement this 
week from Tokyo that the 
Mexican Government has 
asked creditor hanks to stretch 
out payments on $52.5 billion 
(£36J billion), more than half 
of Mexico's total foreign debt, 
dropped like a bombshell 
among foreign bank repre- 
sentatives in Mexico Gty. 

“This could complicate the 
negotiations even more,” one 
Swiss bank rep re sentative 


The banker said be found it 
hard to believe that the nego- 
tiations could be complete 
before September 29 when the 
annual meeting of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund and 
the World Bank opens. 

“If some agreement is not 
reached before then, the Mexi- 

can Government is going to 
have some serious problems 
because the rescue package is a 
maze of conditions. Each step 
depends on the approval of 
the preceding step and it is 
begimun^ to look like a 

The S1.6 billion pledged by 

the IMF will be disbursed only 
when the creditor banks agree 
in principle to provide some 
$6 billion in financing over 
the next two years. 

The bridging loan Mexico is 
supposed to receive from vari- 
ous central banks also de- 
pends on the private creditors 
approving their own participa- 
tion. Something similar ties 
the World Bank's support to 
the rest of the package. 

“The problem is that a delay 
-at one stage would delay the 
entire package." a British 
banker said. “The Mexican 
Government's economic pol- 
icy cannot be carried through 
without the package." 

An American banker re- 
ported that there was still 
“considerable resistance from 
US regional banks and some 
European banks regarding 
credit for Mexico". He 
added:“We don't think Mex- 
ico needs as much as it says. 
The advisory committee is 
thinking in terms of about 
$4 .5 bfllion.” 

The former Finance Min- 

ister, Senor Jesus Silva 
Herzog, told creditor banks ai 
the beginning of this year that 
Mexico's financial needs for 
the next two years would be 
$10 billion. 

Since then the Mexican 
estimate has reached $12 bil- 
lion. although it is seeking part 
of this via proposals such as 
capitalization on interest, ; 
lower interest rates and the 
elimination of spreads. 

“We are asking for twice as 
much as we expect to get in 
terms of lightening the load," 
one finance ministry source 
said. “It is a vicious circle. We 
can't reactivate the economy 
because there is no credit and 
there is no credit because we 
can't get those loans.”

Mexican observers say the

ment between Mexico and its 
creditors before September 29

The housebuilding group 
Waller Lawrence doubled the 
size of its business yesterday 
when it agreed to pay £21.9 
million for the privately- 
owned Poco Group. 

The deal places Waiter Law- 
rence among the top 20 
housebuilders with operations 
stretching from Newcastle in 
the north to Christchurch, 
Dorset, in the south. 

Poco, set up in 1963, has a 
land bank of more than 2,100 
{dots on S3 sites, mainly in the 
north of England. Its prop- 
erties ranee from homes for 
first-time buyers to four- and 
five-bedroom houses. 

Walter Lawrence has been 
keen to reduce construction 
activities and concentrate on 
housebuilding. The deal will 
give it about 4,000 plots. 

The company is forecasting 
full-year pretax profits of £3.3 
million compare! with £2.8 
million last time. 

The deal is being financed 
by a rights issue on terms 
which value the new shares at 
85p each. The existing shares 
finished 8p down at luQp. 

Badgerline, the Avon-based 
bus operator, yesterday be- 
came the second of National 
Bus Company's local subsid- 
iaries to be sold to a team of 
managers and employees 
under the Government's priv- 
atization programme: 

The buyout team is led by 
Mr Trevor Smallwood, the 
managing director, and in- 
cludes about 90 staff at all 
levels. The rest of the 
company's 950 employees are 
to be given the opportunity to 
participate through a share 
incentive scheme. 

eivetLThe sale price has not 
been disclosed.

Octopus has significant 
sales in Australia and the 
depreciation of the dollar 
there contributed to a cur- 
rency loss of £200,000. The 
disappointing Christmas last 
year has also scared oft 
booksellers from stocking up 
too heavily this year. 

Hamlyn, in for just over 
three months, made a loss but 
should make a positive 
contribution in the full year. 
Overheads have been cut 
back and the unwieldy book 
list pruned. The group's dis- 
tribution will, from March 
next year, be concentrated at 
Hamfyn's warehouse site in 
Northamptonshire, l eadin g 
to more cost-cutting.

There is tittle doubt that 
Clyde is vulnerable, precisely 
because Wytch Farm is so 
profitable, even at low oQ 
prices. And now must be the 
time to buy, as it is unlikely to 
come cheaper. 

In doing all the right things 
to survive, Clyde has made 
itself attractive ks a takeover 
candidate. Debt is’ low and 
overheads are being con- 
tained But it needs the 
support of its shareholders to 
see it through until the ofl 
price starts to rise again. 

They must take the long- 
term view of the oil price, and 
if they believe it will rise, 
Clyde is one of the most 
attractive small oil com- 
panies which can have a real 
niture. It is small enough to 
be leveraged to discoveries.

the wider margins obtained 
when selling the house. 

Steetley is making rapid 
inroads into this market with 
the help of a highly-auto- 
mated brick plant at 
Parkhouse, North Stafford- 
shire. The outlook for vol- 
umes looks good but prices 
are stablitiaug. Although 
bricks account for less than 
1 5 per cent of group turnover, 
they are a significant contrib- 
utor to profits and have 
considerable potential. 

The weather wasa negative 
factor in the first half of this 
year. However, results from 
energy-related extractive op- 
erations compared well with 
the first half of the last year. 

The performance in France 
was encouraging, but the fell 
in demand ror ready-mixed 
concrete in the Middle East 
was reflected in first-half 
profits. Canada reported 
sound results for the first half, 
especially from distribution 
operations. However, the sec- 
ond half will be worse since 
two important customer in- 
dustries have recently suf- 
fered from industrial action. 

Steetley has not yet run out 
of steam. Although it is 
making a 10 per cent margin 
before interest repayments 
and a 17 per cent return on 

capital, there is scope to build 
on the existing businesses. 
More importantly, there are

brewing sector analyst at 
Wood Mackenzie, the broker, 
said: “Liggett is not seen as a 
high-quality investment and 
its sale would be seen by the 
City as a step in the right 

He says that the effect of the 
sale on earnings per share 

would be negligible, but it 
would reduce Grand 
Metropolitan's gearing from 
50 to about 45 per cent. 

Liggett has been up for sale 
for the post 18 months, ever 
since a planned management 
buyont foiled to materialize. 

Elsewhere in brewers. Alfred 
Lyons fell a further 6p to 305p

Kashing. thr Hortg Kong 
financier who heads 
Hutchison Whampoa, is said 
to want to raise his bolding 
from 4.9 to about 20 per cent. 

Mr James JolL, the finance 
director of Pearson, said: “We 
are still in friendly talks with 
him. but no agreement has yet 
been reached between us.” 

Also reported to be mon- 
itoring the situation with 'in-

Gossips say they are in- 
terested in acquiring Grand 
Metropolitan's Inter- 


continental Hotel chain and 
have built up a strategic stake 
of more than 4 per cent. 

The stock market in general 
had a dull day, with the FT 30 
Share index opening 0.7 
higher and then drifting 
steadily lower, to finish down 
10.9 at 1,271.9.

previous night to $433.00. 

Worries about the state of 
the economy spilled, over into 
the equity markets, with deal- 
ers now regarding higher in-

Mr Stephen Lewis, an 
economist at Phillips & Drew,

term interest rates may have 
been averted, but 1 think they 
are being over-optimistic.”

could result in renewed in- 
terest in the shares. 

Alexanders Laing & 
Cruickshank. the broker, held 
a major seminar on the paper 
and packaging industry for 
fund managers. The guesi list 
included directors of Bo water. 
David S Smith. DRG Group 
and Mr Robert Maxwell, pub- 
lisher of the Daily Mirror 

Apparently, David S Smith, 
unchanged at 248p. and DRG 
Gronp, steady at 278p. both 
made favourable impressions 
on the institutions. 

The bad news is still pour- 
ing out of the offices of 
Saatchi & Saatchi. the world's 
biggest advertising agency. 
Yesterday, the price fell a 
further 15p to 615p. after 
60Sp, following the news that 

• There were whispers in 
the market yesterday that 
Scrimgeonr Vickers, the 
broker, is about to lose one of 
its top teams — with just 
over a month to go before the 
big bang. Dealers claim 
that Mr Michael Sperring 
and the rest of his highly 
profitable electrical team are 
set to join Smith New 
Court. Scrangeonr was un- 
available for comment last 


Mr Robert Jacoby had re- 
signed as chairman and chief 
executive of Ted Bates, the 
group's recently-acquired US 
subsidiary. Saatchi paid $450 
million (£300 million) for 
Bates in May. But the ac- 
quisition has resulted in 
Saatchi losing a number of its 
most lucrative accounts 
following accusations that it 
had led to a conflict of 

Warner-Lambert and 
Colgate Palmolive, the US 
groups, both sacked Saatchi 
following the merger with 
Bates and. a few weeks ago, 
Procter & Gamble announced 
it had decided to place part of 
its account, worth S60 million, 
with other agencies. . 

Mr Jacoby is said to have 
resigned after arguments with 
the main boards of both Bates 
and Saatchi over proposed 
senior management changes. 
The Saatchi share price has 
been a dull market throughout 
the summer and now stands 
32 Ip below its year’s high. 

Early indications point to 
the Trustee Savings Bank 
being heavily oversubscribed 
when the lists close at 10 am 
today. The success of the 
issue, which will raise almost 
£1.5 billion, has also been 
good news for the other high 
street banks, including the big 

They were all marked 
higher in early unde, but 
finished below their best levels 
as the rest of the market 
turned easier. Lloyds firmed 
2p to 444p and National 
Westminster 5p to 547p. 
Barclays finished all square at 
489p. but Midland lost 3p at 

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 

Will the TSB blur 
the Bank’s vision 

The game of guessing how much the 
British public will have put up to buy 
shares in the TSB by 10 o'clock this 
morning will be over soon enough. It 
is safe to say it will dwarf the £2 billion 
for Laura Ashley and even the £4.5 
billion for Wellcome. It may well 
exceed the £6 billion of cheques for 
the initial BT issue, which was twice 
the size. 

All those had effects on the money 
supply, on building societies and on 
the money markets, obliging the Bank 
of England to give temporary extra 
funds to the markets to stave off 
higher interest rates. In the case of BT, 
the problems were eased by the 
proceeds, which cut the 
Government’s borrowing require- 
ment. But in the confusion the Bank 
was unable to read the money signals 
at what proved to be a crucial time. 
Partly as a result, there was a sterling 
crisis two months later and interest 
rates had to be jacked up. 

The TSB issue promises to be even 
more complex and confusing at a time 
when interest rate signals may be 
equally crucial. 

How much money will be drawn 
out of the banks and building societies 
will depend on how the TSB shares are 
allocated — by ballot or scaling down 
— and therefore what proportion of 
cheques are cashed. Such withdrawals 
however should not cause the same 
shortage in money markets as earlier 
issues since essentially most of the 
money, will be moving from other 
banks to the TSB. 

Cash moved from building societies 
to banks in preparation for the issue 

(as they did with BT) may be some ef- 
fect on the money and banking figures 
for the banking month of September, 
even though this ended last Wednes- 
day. The September figures are likely 
to be awful anyway. The Government 
is running a high borrowing require; 
ment — possibly as mlich as £3.5 
billion - as advanced tax payments by 
oil companies are repaid because of 
their loss of profit. 

To the extent people have drawn 
cheques on building societies for the 
offer rather than transferring the. 
money to banks, the effects will be 
quite different Either way. the soci- 
eties are likely to take the losses out of 
their liquidity, hoping that nearly all- 
ihc money will rapidly return. The 
effects of the TSB issue on the money- 
supply are necessarily complex. 

Money merely transferred between 
banks need not affect the broader 
measure. It could even fall because: 
increases in bank capital — in this case 
the TSB’s capital — arc effectively 
defined as a fall in money supply. 

To make matters worse, the Bank of 
England is about to change its 
statistical banking months to a 
straightforward calendar basis. The 
TSB issue will fall between the end of 
September under the old regime and 
the beginning of October under the 
new. All that can be said for certain is 
that it will be hard lor the Bank of En- 
gland to know what is going on. 
Should it then judge money con- 
ditions by the falling exchange rate, 
the rising rate of of increase in 
earnings or simply the opinion polls? 

Dirty tricks in the City 

Much of the heat during the recent 
Guinness-Risk affair was generated in 
the cause of self-regulation — the 
system whereby the various City 
dubs, from Lloyd’s to the Stock 
Exchange, are broadly free to make 
their own rules and punish offenders 
in their own way. 

The City believes in the minimum 
of statutory regulation and interfer- 
ence from government authorities. 
For reasons good and bad the City's 
area of freedom to deal in the ways it 
sees fit is being eroded, notably by the 
Financial Services Bill which seeks to 
give investors more protection in the 
free-for-all expected to follow the end 
of the stockbrokers' cartel on October 
27 (Big Bang). 

Forecasts of what is likely to happen 
after October are legion, and conflict- 
ing. Suprisingly — on reflection, not 
suprisingly — there is considerable 
unanimity that self-regulation, even 
as modified by the Financial Services 
Bill, will give way, within five years or 
less, to statutory regulation through a 
British equivalent of the American 
Securities & Exchange Commission. 

This may be too pessimistic a view 
to take, even among those in the City 
best equipped to take it. However, 
some of the early, pre-Bang signs are 
not promising. 

For example, a broker in helping: 
defend his company client against an 
unwanted takeover bid buys in 
quantities of stock to prevent it falling 
into the bidder’s hands. The bid fails : : 
and the market price of the shares in . 
the company bid for drops. The 
broker has to sell or place the shares 
bought during the bid battle, but at a 
loss. To cover this contingency the , 
company agrees, in advance, to pay a- 
substantially higher fee to its advisers. 

The directors of the company 
would primarily be at fault in effec- 
tively subsidizing the buying of the 
company's own shares. If they do act 
in this way they are probably breaking 
the law as well as the proprieties. 

Another temptation. A merchant 
bank, acting for a bidder, through his- 
dealing associate, buys shares in the. 
target company. The price paid, 
according to the rules, may be no 
higher than the value of bid but the 
merchant bank is aggressive. It signals 
through the Chinese wall to the in- 
house broker-dealers to pay more and 
to pass on the shares to the appro- 
priate quarter at a book loss (the 
difference between the price paid and 
the bid value). 

No respectable company or firm 
would use devices of this kind. But 
others might.

New life in an 
old landscape 

Wiltshire is the open space on 
the map of England between 
the Home Counties and the 
West Country. It is culturally 
part of the West Country 
although it lies far enough 
eastwards to possess a small 
band of daily commuters to 

When compared with its 
neighbours, Wiltshire seems 
spacious and uncluttered. It is 
one of the largest counties of 
southern England and con- 
tains some of die broader 
tracts of land closed perma- 
nently to the public. The 
Ministry of Defence estates 
which stretch across Salisbury 
Plain and beyond account for 
no less than 9 per cent of the 
area of Wiltshire. 

The outer reaches of Lon- 
don are leapfrogging the green 
belt and coming to rest in a 
string of new bousing develop- 
ments around many of the old 
villages and country towns of 
Berkshire. Wiltshire is a'tittle 
too far from London to be 
much affected. 

It has had to create its own 
industries rather than wait to 
be overwhelmed and enriched 
by somebody else's overspill. 
Industrial development began 
early in Wiltshire. Swindon 
was described as “a village of 
no importance" before Brunei - 

decided to build the head- 
quarters of the Great Western 
Railway below it. 

The two settlements have 
long been joined. A walk 
through the turn-of-the-ceo- 
tury terraces that link old and 
new Swindon is like being 
wafted to one of the industrial 
towns of the Midlands or 
north. Swindon, now one of 
the fastest growing towns in 
the country, sits oddly in rural 
Wiltshire. It is not 
everybody's favourite place. 

Auberon Waugh made a 
character in one of his novels 
spend "six years as an assis- 
tant curate in Swindon, bear- 
ing the Christian message 
among the shiftiest and 
stupidest people on earth." 
Betjeman remarked brusquely 
that the town contained many 
buildings but little 

The county has not quite 
managed to throw off its 
association with dull-witted 
peasants in smocks. Swindon 
is the antidote. Its population 
has almost doubled in the past 
50 years and it has not 
finished growing. More farm- 
land is earmarked for further ' 
housing to the north-west as 
the town continues to benefit 
from favourable rents, ex- 
cellent transport links and 

easy access to unspoilt 

Thanks to Brunei's exacting 
standards, Swindon was on 
the first regular route for 
British Rail's high-speed 
trains. The western region 
inherited the straight run that 
Brunei arranged for the Great 
Western Railway almost 150 
years ago. 

The result is a run of less 
than an hour for the 77 miles 
from Swindon to London. The 
nearby M4 puts Heathrow 
airport about an hour away. 

Swindon houses. almost a 
quarter of the population of 
the whole county. Most of the 
rest live in the country towns 
and Salisbury. Fanning is still

Local sacccess: Despite British Rail c utbac k s , Swindon is 
one of the fastest-growing towns in Britain 

who was always loyal to his 
native county. 

Farming in Wiltshire is 
much less uniform than in 
many other counties. It has a 
strong tradition of dairying 
and has given us the Wiltshire 
curing method used in many 
of Europe's largest bacon 
factories.The county still 
speaks with a decided “hit" 
and “■an" in its voice. 

The opening of the M4 
through Wiltshire enabled 

traffic that reaches Wiltshire 
along it passes through the 
county without stopping. 

The glory of landlocked 
Wiltshire is its landscape. 

It has its characteristic tour- 
ist attractions. The most nota- 
ble are its archaeological 
monuments and the large 
number of white horses and 
other figures cut into the chalk 

Such grand designs need to 
be seen in an open setting and 

The county has enough space to show off its monuments as 
part of a single history instead of as isolated relics 

one of the main industries, 
although grain now grows on 
many of the downs that once 
provided grazing for thou- 
sands of sheep. 

“All my life I have looked 
upon Hampshire as being an 
inferior county to Wiltshire 
with regard to farming," wrote 
A. G. Street, one of the best 
farmer-authors of the 20th 
century and a WDtshireman 

towns like Marlborough and 
Caine to regain some of the 
tranquillity of an earlier age. 

The A4, built on the line of 
the old coaching road from 
London to Bath, is a quiet and 
civilized thoroughfare these 
days and offers welcome relief 
from the motorway. Nearer 
London, the M4 indudes 
some of the busiest stretches 
of road in Britain. Much of the 

in Wiltshire, more than any- 
where else, they can be. Stone- 
henge would be diminished 
appallingly if it were dwarfed 
by the office blocks that have 
been allowed to loom near St 
Paufs. The White Horse 
carved at Alton Barnes. 
Brauon Castle and elsewhere 
would lose something if they 
were all surrounded by golf 
courses or tennis courts. 

Wiltshire bas enough open 
space to show off its monu- 
ments as part of a single 
history instead of cramped 
and isolated relics squeezed 
into gaps in modem develop- 
ment. The county council has 
published its proposed re- 
vision of the Wiltshire struc- 
ture plan, which is meant to 
poin Howards a framework for 
development almost to the 
end of the century. 

A glance at the official map 
shows that only about a 
quarter of the county is not 
designated as some species of 
protected landscape. If a place 
is not in the green belt or an 
area of outstanding natural 
beauty, it is probably pan of a 
special landscape. 

Restrictions on develop- 
ment in such specially des- 
ignated patches of the county 
mean that most of the job 
creation has to take place in 
the north and west 

The prospects for tourism 
are good because the county 
offers the kind of attractions 
the market is demanding. 

Stourbead, a respectable Na- 
tional Trust mansion in the far 
south-west of Wiltshire, pro- 
vides a clue. The house at- 
tracts only about a quarter of 
the number of visitors who 
wander round its magnificent 
rolling pafldand. 

Stately homes still have 
strong appeal, but more tour- 
ists are concerned with the 
settings of the buildings. They 
do not want a picture-postcard 
village to be surrounded by 
suburbs and industrial estates. 

Many of its major single 
attractions are near its bor- 
ders: the lions at Longleat. the 
Cotswold Water Park and 
Slourhead. The centre rolls 
quietly and contentedly, a 
remote and unhurried haven 
for anyone seeking a ready 
escape from the urban rate

Stonhenge, county treasure and international attraction. Its meaning re mains a mystery 

The baffling links with 
an unknown past 

There are prehistoric remains 
all over Britain, but the big- 
gest most famous and most 
mysterious are in Wiltshire. 

U is undeniable that the 
county's prehistory is more 
interesting than its history. If 
the proverbial man in the 
Clapham omnibus were asked 
which ancient monuments he 
associated with Wiltshire, he 
would probably cite stone 
circles like Stonehenge and 
white horses. 

He would be right about the 
stones. They were dragged 
into position thousands of 
years ago. But the outlines of 
while horses cut into some of 
Wiltshire's chalk hillsides are 
all less than 250 years old. The 
best-known is the Westbury 
horse in the west of the county 
and is a conspicuous land- 
mark for rail travellers on the 
line from London to 

There are at least five other 
surviving white horses in the 
county, one of which is said to 
have been cut to commemo- 
rate the accession of Queen 
Victoria. The phrase “at least" 
is necessary because white 
horses need regular weeding if 
they’re not to disappear under 

There are many more mys- 
teries attached to the county’s 
older outdoor treasures. It is 
tempting to imagine the 
shades of the builders of 
Stonehenge howling with 
laughter at some of the 
explanations advanced in the 
past 50 years for the appear- 
ance of their creation. 

The only certainty is that 
some of the remotest tracts of 
the county were once the 

stamping grounds of a series 
ofbusy civilizations. Whoever 
they were, the centuries have 
covered their traces well. But 
their work has made Wiltshire 
one of the most important 
archaeological areas in the 
world. Stonehenge is a heap of 
ruins now, but in terms of 
numbers of visitors it is one of 
the most popular outdoor 
monuments in western 

The circle of standing stones 
has become an immediately 
recognizable symbol of an- 
cient civilization. Hie giant 
ruins remain a baffling link 
with an unknown past. 
Archaeologists have estab- 
lished that it was built in 
stages and used for many 
centuries. But that is alL Little 
more can be said with cer- 
tainty except that druids never 
conducted human sacrifices 

Stones at Avebury, site of 
the county's other immense 
circle, were first heated with 
bonfires and then cold water 
was poured over them to 
make them easy to hammer 
into usable chunks. Several 
burial mounds have been 
relentlessly ploughed into the 
ground by formers and some 
have been blown up acciden- 
tally fo target practice on 
Salisbury plain. 

But the size, number and 
pattern of the survivors make 
the place awesome still Who- 
ever built Wiltshire's most 
famous monuments spent 
years doing it with an im- 
mense labour force. Were they 
slaves, or were they worship- 
pers eager to appease some 
capricious deity? All we know 

is that it ah happened a long 
time ago. 

The size of the surviving 
store of Wiltshire's relics is 
illustrated by current efforts to 
reconcile military training 
needs on Salisbury plain with 
the desire to conserve 
archaeological relics. 

Some 1,700 monuments 
have been identified in the 
military training area which 
covers about 9 per cent of the 
whole area of Wiltshire. Al- 
though some prehistoric relics 
have been damaged or de- 
stroyed by shells or tank 
tracks, the restricted areas of 
Salisbury plain contain an 
exceptionally dense collection 
of monuments. 

The reason is that they have 
been largely unaffected by 
intensive arable forming, 
probably the greatest of all 
levelled of ancient mounds 
and ditches. 

Most of the monuments in 
the area are ancient field 
systems, but it also includes 
substantial national monu- 
ments. One is Chapperton 
Down, where a joint military- 
civilian committee 
which examined the ancient 
relics on Salisbury Plain could 
not agree on a a protection 
policy that would safeguard 
archaeological interests yet 
meet the need for troop 

There is a mass of outdoor 
evidence for the inhabitants of 
Wiltshire today that they oc- 
cupy land that has been settled 
by many civilizations, most of 
which remain largely un- 
known to us.

includes 10,000 listed build-

uled ancient monuments and 
158 conservation areas, make 
it a tourists’ paradise.

A good way of getting to 
meet the locals is to go to some 
of the many events held 
throughout the summer, such 
as fetes, with displays like 
ballooning, or parachuting, or 
some other activity often put 
on by the armed forces. 

There are shows of all kinds, 
— from flowers to animals, 
ploughing contests, steam ma- 
chine meetings — and fairs, 
with faces and dialect which 
make you feel as though you 
are standing in a Hardy novel 
Go to the barn dance or the 
auction of form machinery if 
you want to savour the true 
flavour of Wiltshire. 

There is a motor cycle and 
car racing circuit near Castle 
Combe, and raring at Salis- 
bury. It’s well worth visiting 
the local library and reading 
the notice boards for informa- 
tion about country events. 
Local newspapers are good, 
too. It all depends on how 
organized a holiday you want.

Wiltshire is full of wide open 
spaces but its population is 
growing fast. Last year the 
population was estimated at 
540,000. or little more than 
half the population of Bir- 
mingham. But Wiltshire is 
expanding and the county 
council expects the population 
to have risen by 37,000, or 7 
per cent by 1996. 

Growth, and the need to 
find room for it and sen-ice it, 
dominates the council's pro- 
posed alterations to the struc- 
ture plan for the county. The 
Government will eventually 
decide on the proposals. 

It is a complicated and 
unexciting process drawing up 
structure plans for large 
chunks of England. But they 
are vital documents for in- 
dustry, builders and the 
conservation movement be- 
cause they determine where 
the main opportunities and 
pressures will occur. 

The council expects much 
growth to spread along the M4 
corridor “in order to 
encourage the maximum 
number of jobs to be created 
in those areas where firms are 
most likely lo invest" There 
will also be heavy emphasis on 
development in the west of the 
county, where transport links 
are less favourable but where 
pressure for landscape 
conservation is less than in the 
scenic centre. 

The council has lavish plans 
for main road links to the 
main settlements in the west, 
including the county town of 
Trowbridge. Access to the M4 
will be improved and' the 
council wants land to be 
released for industrial 

development. The area has 
been hampered in recent years 
by its comparative remoteness 
and the rapid decline of 
several traditional industries. 

There has been some 
successful development in the 
area for many years and there 
is already a solid industrial 
and commercial base on 
which to build. The West 
Wiltshire Trading Estate, 
which serves the towns in the 
area, was founded by Harold 
Cory on the site of an old army 
ordnance depot after he had s 
old his main publishing and 
printing business. 

“The breakthrough came in 
1966 when Tesco decided to 
have a regional distribution 
centre here," Mr Cory’ said. 
“This estate has been built up 
over the past 20 years and 
companies here are involved 
in such activities as fertilizers, 
agricultural machinery and 
motorcycle distribution. 

“I had an initial problem to 
persuade the planners that it 
would be a good idea io bring 
forward a sub-regional trading 
estate. It took two years to 
persuade them." The planners 
of today are eager to attract 
business to west Wiltshire, 
and they have decided to 
allocate 40 hectares of 
employ mem land in Trow- 
bridge alone. 

The council points out in 
the document that the land 
includes that used for the 
White Horse business technol- 
ogy park which should boost 
economic growth throughout 
the 10 years covered .by the 
structure plan. “Population 
growth has already brought 
the town to the stage where a 
large shopping scheme an- 

chored to a department store 
has been proposed and plan- 
ning permission granted," the 
council continues. 

The council has quite dif- 
ferent plans for the historic 
city of Salisbury, where 
growth is to be restrained and 
channelled northwards to- 
wards Amesbury. “The 
county strategy is intended to 
restrict the level of develop- 
ment in south Wiltshire in 
order to give maximum 
protection to its high-quality 
environment," the structure 
plan document says. “Particu- 
lar emphasis is placed on 
protecting the landscape set- 
ting of Salisbury *” 

The council fully recognizes 
the need to safeguard the 
famous views of Salisbury 
cathedral which dominate 
most of (he roads into the city. 
That means curtailing 
development on high ground, 
but the city will nevertheless, 
remain the principal develop- 
ment area for the south of the 

It has shown in recent years 
that it can attract office 
development and its role as an 
important tourist centre gives 
it buoyant potential for creat- 
ing jobs. The challenge that 
faces the council* and other 
local authorities to the end of 
the century is to protect the 
characteristic Wiltshire land- 
scape while finding work for 
the local population. 

The county council is one of 
many in the south and west of 
England which were Conser- 
vative strongholds until the 
shire elections Iasi year. Wilt-

tions with a hung council and

Forget the beauty and let’s talk business. 

You cannot get away from it, Wiltshire is one of 
England’s most beautiful counties, but one thinks 
of it as being rather quaint. 

Forget it. Wiltshire has a tremendous deal to 
offer both new business ventures and existing 
companies seeking relocation. The environmental 

benefits are obvious so we’ll point out a few of the 
business development advantages. 

There is an outstanding range of low cost 
premises and serviced sires available, loans and 
grants are on tap for the right people, and a willing 
and traditionally skilful workforce is there for the 
asking. Communications are excellent, housing 

is no problem, and the variety of executive homes 
is unrivalled. Wiltshire County Council people are 
eager to advise and assist — just ask them.

Room for 
firms to 

From previous page 

a vastly increased Alliance 
representation- The r ^ g 'n nan 
of the council is now Jack 
Ainslie, a Liberal farmer who 
toiled in the wilderness of 
opposition for decades before 
last year's upheaval. 

“It is stm a very lovely 
county to live in and people 
are attracted to h in those 
ternis," he said. “But we 
believe that there is still plenty 
of room for industrial and 
commercial development, 
particularly in the M4 

Mr Ainslie, who stressed 
throughout that be was speak- 
ing as chairman of the council 
and not as a party politician, 
said be thought there was also 
scope for “rightly-scaled" 
development in the rural parts 
of the county. “There are a 
number of very good exam- 
ples in Wiltshire where high- 

jack Ainslie; new emphasis 

technology firms have come 
in and set things up in villages. 

“One thing we can offer is 
the ability to retrain people in 
our colleges for the new 
industries that are coming in. 
We need flexibility for eco- 
nomic development right 
across the county. 1 think that 
is an emphasis we have not 
had before. We are vulnerable 
still to an extent in Swindon to 
one or two large employers. I 
think it is better to have more 
diversification, which clearly 
we will have.” 

The county council says in 
hs structure plan proposals 
that Wiltshire is expected to 
be one of the fastest growing 
areas of the country in the 
early 1 990s. Population 
growth is expected to accel- 
erate and reach almost the 
level in the home counties. 

The number of households 
in the county is expected to 
rise even fester, thanks to the 
increase in the number of 
people living alone. 


Rural army: military exercise on Salisbury Plain where cattle make way for manoeuvres 

A demob-happy retreat 

The Ministry of Defence 
(Army, Navy and RAF) fea- 
tures large in Wiltshire. It 
owns HXL232 acres of freehold • 
land, 129 acres leasehold and 
has rights over 239. 

By far the biggest area is the 

91.000 acres of Salisbury 
Plain, which it has controlled 
since 1897. Twenty thousand 
acres are fully fanned and 

45.000 are devoted to limited 
farming where cattle some- 
times have to be moved to 
make way for military ex- 
ercises. A further large acreage 
is devoted to forestry. 

Because there are so many 
bases in Wiltshire the popula- 
tion Includes many retired, 
servicemen who simply could 
not bear to leave the county 
when their time was up. They 
often become craftsmen or 
start another kind of business. 
In the village of Castle Combe 
(of Dr Doolinle feme), for 
example, almost everyone is 

Tom Noraoss, a former 
navigator from the Lyneham 
base, lives in a picturesque 
cottage by the stream, where 
Rex Harrison and the animals 
were filmed. Down the road, 
Hugh Barnes from RAF 
Hullavjngton runs die post 
office, and former Lyneham 
pilot Adrian Bishop has an 
antique shop. 

Most villages on this side of 
Wiltshire, within reach of exit 
17 of the M4. tend to have a 
mixture of people — landed 
gentry, ex-servicemen, and 
computer experts — who com- 
mute to Bristol or Bath, 
teachers and people who work 
for one of the big industries in 
Swindon. Every village has 
many small builders and peo- 
ple who do a variety of civilian 
tasks “up at the camp" or 
“down at the MoD". 

Many of the smaller conn try 

houses are occupied by people 
from the City: bankers, 
publishers and exporters. 

James Norton of Morgan 
Grenfell recently bought a 
manor house and intends to 
commute to the City each day, 
at least during the summer. 

He said: “It's easy. 1 can catch 
the 7am train from 
Chippenham, which gens to 
London by 8.10, and be in the 
office well before nine 

In the nearby village of 
Biddestone, the distinguished 
American painter, Richard 
Ewen, described how he came 
to England on a one-year 
commission 22 years ago and 
found Wiltshire. 

“1 simply turned left at 
Heathrow and ended up here. 

1 can't imagine a better 
environment for a painter 
anywhere in the world. The 
landscape is so varied and it's 
easy to read) Dorset or Wales. 
Clients can travel from Lon- 
don or anywhere in the world 
without hassle.” 

About five miles out of 
Biddestone you come to every 
tourists' idea of old England: 
Lacock. People can stroll 
down streets where the blade 
and white Tudor houses re- 
semble a stage set, and excit- 
ing narrow lanes lead to little 
shops like that run by silver- 
smith Graham Watling and 
his daughter, who manage to ■ 
combine the best traditional 
skills with outstanding mod- 
em design in jewellery and 
larger objects. 

But many people are drawn 
to Lacock because it is the 
shrine of William Henry Fox 
Talbot, the inventor of 
photography. They can visit 
the museum and see all the 
early work, and wander 
around the peaceful grounds 
and abbey where he lived. 

His great, great, 
granda lighter, Janet Burnett- 
Brown, who acts as one of the 
guides, said: “We had 58,000 
visitors last year and so far we 
seem to be on target this year. 

Malmesbury in north Wilt- 
shire is a gem of a medieval 
hill town with a distinctly 
French flavour. Although it is 
only five miles from exit 1 7 of 
the M4 and the same distance 
from Tetbury in Gloucester- 
shire, it has a character .quite 
different from the places to the 
west of the exit 

This is a mysterious stone 
town with secret dark passages 
leading down to the river or 
up to the town and the 
magnificent Norman abbey. It 
is a lively place with a good 
mix of “outsiders'’ and indig- 
enous population. 

Many famous actors and 
public figures have weekend 
retreats In the villages 
surrounding it and they come 
shopping on Saturday morn- 
ings without too much fuss. 

Councillor Ken Sil version, 
a Londoner, has done much to 
improve the state of tourism 
by increasing accommodation 
in the town. His wife Joyce 
runs a health food shop in 
Abbey Row. 

Everyone knows Peter 
Howell, a silversmith, who 
came to Malmesbury looking 
for a studio in which to make 
' his exquisite presentation 
model aircraft, and John 
Bowen, who makes dresses for 
duchesses and the county set, 
in a tiny cottage in Silver 
street, anfi Leslie Bennett who 
has just started a historic 
buildings research service. He 
hopes that all the owners of 
interesting bouses, great and 
small, will want the history of 
their homes beautifully 



Alfred defeated the Danes on this ridge in a r unning battle 
in the ninth century. The Westbury White Horse got into 
its stride in the late eighteenth century. One way and another 
West Wiltshire has a fas cinating past. Pre-history, recorded 
history. West Wiltshire has it all. Not to mention the 
marvellous landscape of Salisbury Plain. 

But West Wiltshire has a big future as well. Much of it 
created by the entrepreneurial West Wiltshire District 
Council. The White Horse looks down on its namesak e, 
White Horse Business Technology Park, itself striding 
towards the nineties and beyond. 

Trowbridge, just up the road, will soon boast a rejuvenated 
town centre and a £2Qm. shopping development designed to 
blend in superbly with its environment. 

And for people who come to live and work here, there are 
exciting housing developments and first class leisure 
facilities. Not to mention an expanding economy.

to favour 

By Diana WUdman 

France seems set for a holiday home 
revival following the rfiang e of govern- 
ment away from socialism. Wealth tax 
on individual home ownership has 
recently been abolished, and' prices, 
depressed for some years, are not now 
dissimilar to those for comparable 
Spanish property. Prices in Spain, 
particularly along the Costa del Sol have 
virtually doubled in the past four years. 

French prices will surely rise as 
investors look to France again, but 
currently there is a wide property choice 
in all price brackets. 

Purchasing costs in France are subject 
to a two-tier system. On resale property . 
older than five years, the essential 
payments come to between 8 and 10 per 
cent of the purchase price. On new 
homes, it is around 2.5 per cent which 
offers an obvious inducement to the 
British investor. 

Another attraction is that developers, 
in order to cater for the holiday home 
owner, are now tending to build schemes 
offering leisure facilities such as tennis 
courts, swimming pools and a manage- 
ment and rental service where 

There is underground garaging with 

Squares are linked by 
narrow, winding streets 

Away from the sophistication of the 
coastal strip between Cannes and Nice, 
unspoilt Provencal villages nestle in the 
wooded hills overlooking the Mediterra- 
nean, often proving a magnet for 
holidaymakers who are keen on rural 
living but still like to be within a few 
miles of the bright lights. 

Not everyone wishes to live in a rural 
property, however, and a good com- 
promise has been reached in the creation 
of Mougms-le-Haut, a large develop- 
ment being built as a complete village set 
on a hilltop five* miles inland from 
Cannes, in the Alpes Mari times. 

Mougms-le-Haut is modelled on a 
19th-century, typical Provencal village, 
complete with old roof tiles, wooden 
shutters and old terracona flooring. It 
already consists of 700 apartments out of 
2,000 proposed, and sports facilities 
include tennis, swimming, a gymnasium 
and a clubhouse with bar. The apart- 
ments are built in low-rise blocks 
overlooking small squares with foun- 
tains. most of which have their own 
shops and restaurants. The squares are 
linked by narrow winding streets. . 

There are a number of permanent 
residents, enough to justify a s mall 
school, and sales* formerly depressed, 
now look set to improve, according to 
.Chestenons Overseas. These agents have 
a selection of studios, and one-bedroom, 
two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes 
for sale and ready for immediate 

All theapanmems have balconies. and 
there are lifts, and prices include covered 
parking and a basement lock-up cellar, 
which is ideal for purchasers planning to 
Jet out their homes. There is a manage- 
ment and rental service available. Prices 
range from £33,750 for a small stndio, 
from £46.000 for one bedroom, from 
£69.000 for two bedrooms, and from 
£84.000 for three bedrooms. 

In total contrast are the elegant, 
sophisticated apartments comprising 
Residence du Pure Montrose in Cannes. 
It is being built in four and a halfacres of 
mature gardens, once the private park of 
a now demolished 19th-century villa, 
although the imposing wrought-iron 
entrance gales remain. Two blocks with 
40 units in each nre complete and two 
more are now under construction. There 
is a large swimming pool with sunbath- 
ing areas and the scheme is just a 10- 
minute walk from the town centre. 

The whole estate is walled, thus 
providing good security, and every 
apartment has a large terrace — most 
comer units have two. There is a 
selection of show flats which emphasize 
the high-quality finishes — all floors are 
marble and all kitchens are fully fitted. 
Parc Montrose is ideal for permanent 
living, and prices range from £32,000 for 
a very small studio, from £65.000 for one 
bedroom, and from £150,000 for two 
bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

The boating fraternity would do well 
to consider Les Terrasses de la Mer. a 
complex of 32 apartments less than a 
mile from the port at La Napoule. just 
west of Cannes. These homes are tiered 
into the contour of the hillside and have 
an unusual terracing arrangement — the 
terraced garden of one apartment is 
literally the roof of the one underneath.

Residential property 


Wiltshire, rural but high-tech 

Wiltshire is a rttml mmm.. . • _ 


Wiltshire is a nwai county containing a -a 

ferae amount of hieh-terh 8 s ? ■ :« 

[aip amount of high-tech and other new 
industiy, particularly around SvSidM 
along the western corridor. It is toofc 
from London to be commuter country 
yrt people commute to London from 
both the south and the north ofthe 

It hasbecome increasingly popular as 
a peaceful refuge - road and nS 
communications have made it 

- and all sons of property, from bams td 

* manor houses, are m demand as either 
pri ncipa l home or weekend cottage. 

These contrasts, bringing a diversity of 
interests and requirements, add up to a 
county where property is expensive, but 
not as expensive as its neighbours to the 
east. Surrey and Berkshire. 

The agents. Carter Jonas, based in 
Marlborough, sum up the si tua tion: 

“Wiltshire enjoys all the advantages of 
being real country, while at thesame 
time remaining a healthy but acessible 
distance from London. We are too lame 
to be overpopulated and too fer from 
London to be threatened by suburbia. 
Owing to the size of the county and its 
topography, it is also still possible to be 
quite remote." 

% Swindon, to the north, is the magnet 
for the county's industry, giving way 
further south to the prestigious Pewsey 
Vale area (60 sturdy souls commute 
daily from Pewsey). 

Salisbury Plain effectively cuts the 
county in two, providing a sort of no- 
man's land as few people want to risk 
being shelled or confronted by a tank 
That, in turn, leads to Salisbury and its 
surrounding area. 

Ruaraidh Adams-Cairns, from Savins' 
Salisbury office, said that west ofthe city 
the distances are too great for commut- 
ers, but the villages are prey for the 
weekend cottage-hunters. To the south 
and east, London is “commutable”, not 
least for those who dash across to 
W Winchester for the fast trains to 

Decentralization by London-based 
companies to Swindon and, to a lesser 
extent, Chippenham, has meant an 
influx of senior and middle management 
seeking suitable country homes. There 
are also extensive developments in these 
towns, particularly Swindon, with large 
new areas of estate housing. 

Swindon and its surrounding area 
accounts for a quarter of Wiltshire's 
population of 550,000 and helps to make 
it the second fastest-growing county in 
Britain. The town shows the classic 
effects of the M4 western corridor, with 
high levels of demand for new office 
*V premises leading to a fast growth in office 

floors pace within the central area. 

Policies are promoting the other areas 
of the town for office development to 
take pressure off the central area. The 
market for industrial land in the town is 
buoyant and the demand is for campus- 
style developments to attract the new 
industrialists who want their office and 
manufacturing workspace in an attrac- 
tive environment 

The newest campus development — or 
business park — is Westlea, a 76,000 sq ft

exceptional prices have been paid in 
recent months for top-quality period 
country houses and cottages. 

“City money, especially that resulting 
from the much publicized Big Bang, has 
obviously had a beneficial effect on 
country house prices, which have been 
rising strongly during the past six 
mouths," be said. 

For example, four former Crown 
Estates cottages near Devizes, priced 
between £30,000 and £45,000, went 
quickly — just the thing for the weekend 
retreat But a Victorian lodge set in an 
acre six miles from Malmesbury, and 
built on one floor, is on offer at £50,000. 

Wiltshire's attraction for retirement 
homes is shown by Foxbury Place, at

development by Wyndham Investment 
one and a half miles west of Swindon 
town centre. It comprises three two- 
storey buildings with parking for 300 
care on a 6‘6-acre site. 

A canopied tower connecting a series 
of glazed malls gives it a distinctive look, 
which these developments increasingly 
strive to achieve. R will not be completed 
until November, but there is much 
interest in it and one computer firm has 
already discussed the possibility of 
leasing the entire project. 

Focus: Special Report on 
Wiltshire pages 26-28 

Further west, Trowbridge is under- 
going great change. In the past three 
years Hunters Tor Securities has devel- 
oped or invested in nearly 250,000 sq ft 
of industrial and commercial flooispace 
in west Wiltshire, particularly Trow- 
bridge, where the company, although 
recognizing the neglect during recent 
years, acknowledges the great potential 
in the town's strategic importance. 

The company is now undertaking a big 
retail redevelopment scheme in the town 
centre. The joint agents Halletts Fox and 
Sons point out that foe £20 million 
scheme covers a site of more than eight 
acres of mainly framer industrial derefio- 
tion. It is proposed to build a split-level 
retail development of more than 150,000 
sq ft within an enclosed mall with space 
for 1,000 cars. The presect is dne for 
completion by the end of 1988. 

All this generates the need for residen- 
tial property and Garter Jonas reports 
that prices in Pewsey Vale and the 
surrounding areas are at their peak. 

Brace Osborne, in charge of the 
property sales department, said some

Fearless Action to stamp his potential 

By Mandarin 

Henry Cecil, the New- 
market trainer, gave Sheikh 
Mohammed his first group 
one success with a colt when 
J? Cuite scored in Italy on 
Sunday. _ Now the same 
combination look set to con- 
tinue their winning tally with 
the promising two-year-old 
Fearless Action in the Granby 
Stakes at Sandown Park 

Cecil sent out Queen’s Sol- 
dier to land this event last 
season and his representative 
today is a young performer fiill 
of potential. Bred in the 
United Slates, Fearless Action 
appeared in public for the first 
time at Yarmouth last month 
and scored impressively, mak- 
ing- ail in a seven-furlong 
maiden event to beat Cabot 
un extended by I ’A lengths. 

Steve Cauthen's mount is 
clearly taking on much stron- 
ger, opposition today, but 
should be capable of conced- 
ing 41b to another talented 
recruit. Love The Grooom, 
who ran really well when

This half sister to the Oaks

trainer, sai± “She's a game filly

“There have been plenty of

Injuries force 
into an early 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 

'TNigel Melville, whose bright 
skills and qualities of leadership 
illuminated English 


„ „ _ — rugby all 

too fitfully, has been forced to 
retire from the game at the age 
of 25. Melville has defied seri- 
ous injury on at least three other 
occasions; now. to the relief of 
his many friends and admirers, 
he has decided his body can take 
no more punishment. 

Melville captained England 
on his first international appear- 
ance. against Australia in 1984. 
and _ throughout last season. 
Despite injury in his last inter- 
national. against France in 
March, he enjoyed an active 
summer and was looking for- 
wMd to a new season with a new 
city, Headingley. in his native 
Yorkshire, having moved north 
from Wasps. 

However. he pulled out of the 
game at Sale on Sunday and 
notified the national and di- 
visional selectors of his inten- 
tion to retire, a derision induced 
by injuries to his neck. It was 
damaged in an off-the-balJ in- 
cident during the British Lions 
game with North Auckland in 
1983' and received another 
heavy blow in an awkward 
tackle in England's match in 
Paris last season. He has been 
suffering from a stiff neck and 
shooting pains in the arms and 
has. , wisely, accepted that no 
game is worth risking perma- 
Veni injury for. 

“If I am going to play I want 
to play at the top." he said 
yesterday. “There is just as 
much risk of getting a knock in a 
junior game so 1 am stopping 
altogether. 1 can still ran, play 
golr or squash and 1 am lucky 
that I am very involved with 
spot? in my job." Melville is 
sports promotions manager for 
the United Kingdom (or the 
Nike sportswear company, 
based in Washington (Tyne and 

“It is a bit of a shock just 
realizing that you are not going 
to play any more but I've been 
having trouble with things like 
ftjpf necks and when il gets to 
that stage you are pushing your 
luck a biL I've got .two legs, two 
arms but only one neck". Thus, 
with a typically brave attempt at 
humour, passes from the play- 
ing arena one of the most 
personable characters in the 
modem game. 

Melville's star has long seen 
one destined never to shine as 
brightly as il should. He 
emerged from schoolboy rugby 
as a natural scrum half and 
captain, leading the England 
school's 19 group to Australia 
and New Zealand in 1 979*. in the 
same year he came within a 
whisker of the North's side 
which beat Graham Mouxie’s 
New Zealanders in Melville's 
home town. Otky. 

Sieve Smith played instead 
and went on to become 
England's most capped scrum 
halt a position Melville might 
have rivalled but for a depress- 
ing string of injuries. He was 
picked to displace Smith against 
Scotland in 1983 but damaged 
an ankle in training; he made a 
brilliant debut for the Lions 
against Southland that summer 
but sustained bis neck injury in 
his next tour outing. 

Since then he has had five 
operations on his knees and, as 
late as last November, strained 
the cruciate ligaments again. He 
came back to play one foil 
season of international rugby, 
bringing his total caps to nine 
though be did not complete 
three of those games, those 
against Ireland and New Zea- 
land in 1985. and France this 

Michael Weston, chairman of 
Engjarufs selectors, whose own 
distinguished international ca- 
reer was brought to a close by 
displaced discs in bis neck, paid 
tribute to Melville yesterday, 
“he was a scrum half with all the 
skills, he had fast feet, fast hands 
and a fast brain. He was a joy to 
watch and it is a tragedy for 
Nigel and for England, for 
whom those skills were never 
seen to the best advantage. 

“Sadly he did not match up to 
the physical requirements which 
are what scram halves need now 
and that is what makes me sad, 
because players of Nigel's skill 
are becoming rarer." 

Nevertheless Weston, in 
conversation with the player, 
will have emphasized tint lire is 
not all rugby and Melville, while 
coming to terms with his abbre- 
viated career, may take consola- 
tion in the fact that if his acute 
playing brain can translate to 
the field of administration, in 
due course he may yet serve his 

In broader terms his depar- 
ture leaves England sadly bereft 
of scram halves in the squad 
which will gather for training at 
Solihull this weekend before the 
team to play Japan at Twick- 
enham on October 1 1 is chosen 
next Monday evening. Since 
Marcus Hannaford (Gloucester) 
will play against Bristol on 
Saturday, subject to a late fitness 
test on a back injury. Richard 
Hill (Bath) is the only fit scrum 
half in the squad though two 
former England players. Nick 
Youngs (Leicester) and Richard 
Harding (Bristol) are showing 
good form. 

Additional players will be 
asked to attend at Solihull and 
after the game against Japan has 
been played, a squad will be 
chosen to spend four days 
training in Portugal at the end of 

Penney likely to miss 
match against Japanese 

By David Hands 

Steve Kenney, the captain of 
Leicestershire, is doubtful for 
his county's game against the 
Japanese at Welford Road next 
Wednesday. Kenney hurt his 
ankle earlier this month and, 
though named in a squad of 21 
for the match yesterday, has at 
the moment only a modest 
chance of playing. 

Leicestershire, who have been 
permitted to extend invitations 
ciiMde the county for one of 
their major centenary celebra- 
tion matches, have Youngs, the 
former England scrum half, 
standing by. Ironically. Youngs, 
when he joined Leicester from 
Bedford, supplanted Kenney in 
the club side. Orwin. rapped by 
England throughout 1985. will 
he one of the locks and another 
cap. Cusworth. will play stand- 
oil' half while two more mem- 
bers of England's current 
training squad, Evans and Rich- 
ards. are included. The team 
will be confirmed after this 
weekend's matches. 

Leicestershire, who beat East- 
ern Counties in a warm-up 
match earlier this month, plan 

to tour Northumberland next 
Easier with players from every 
club in the county in the party. 
However, only two players from 
clubs outside Leicester — Hope 
(Stoneygate) and Barnett 
(Wigston) — find places in the 
squad against the Japanese. 
Peter Wakefield, the London 
Society referee who officiated in 
Japan's first tour game, against 
South of Scotland at Melrose 
last week, will be able to take a 
closer look at oriental rugby in 
November. He has been invited 
to referee in the tenth Asian 
tournament m Bangkok, which 
begins on November 20. 

Ireland's game against Roma- 
nia on November 1, at 
Lansdowne Road, will be han- 
dled by David Bishop of New 
Zealand - not. one hastens to 
add, the Pontypool scrum-hall.

The man from Mazda gets 
Japan’s show on the road 



On August 6, 1945, Yoshfid 
Yamasaki was at work as a 
sub-manager at the 
car factory. Seeing a 
vivid flash at the window, he 
pulled his coat over his head and 
threw himself on the floor. His 
action saved him from the flying 
glass and the scorching of the 
first atom bomb which exploded 
on Hiroshima just over two 
kilometres away from the 

Forty years later, having by 
now become president of one of 
Japan's four largest companies, 
Yamasaki wasoneofthe leading 
local figures in helping Hiro- 
shima successfully bid for the 
1994 Asian Games. He helped 
recreate the city of destruction, 
where even today some are still 
dying from the after-effects of 
radiation. He has been here this 
week with the organizing 
committee to jack up hints from 
the Koreans. 

The Hiroshima Games wiD be 
one year short of the fiftieth 
anniversary of the holocaust; 
though in fact, with the support 
of the Japanese Olympic 
Committee, they had applied to 
the Olympic Council of Asia to 
host the 1 990 event. Beijing also 
applied. Sheikh Fahd of Kuwait, 
the president of the OCA. 
decided with Middle Eastern 
wisdom to persuade the council 
simultaneously to award the 
Gaines of 1990 and 1994 to the 
two cities. 

When Yamasaki crawled out 
from under his office table, he 
was to be met with the injured 
and dying. The Mazda factory 
had a first-aid centre and be- 
came a temporary hospital. His 
first labour for the salvation of 
the city was to help bury the 
thousands of dead. On August 6 
every year. 10.000 paper lan- 
terns are set afloat down the six 
rivers of the Ota delta on which 
Hiroshima stands, in prayer for 
the sotth of those who perished. 
It will be a poignant moment 
when re presentatives of more 
than a third of the world's 
population gather there for a 
sporting event. 

At 72. Yamasaki continues 
working for Mazda as senior 
consultant director, while as 
president of the chamber of 
commerce he is leader of the 
financial administration for the 
Games. Other cities, such as 
Dresden, were also destroyed 
during the war. but none with 
the emotional trauma suffered 
by Hiroshima. 

“It was difficult." Yamasaki 
says, with what must be one of 

From David Miller, Seoul 

the understatements of all time. 
“We had no food, no electricity, 
no houses. And no steeL To start 
to get bade on our feet we had to 
use every bit of scrap metal that 
was available. What was 
achieved to Hiroshima was 
done so by the collective effort 
of everyone, down to the small- 
est shopkeeper or workman." 

A westerner visiting the Ori- 
ent cannot fail to notice the 
comparatively greater respect 
given to the aged. The Hiro- 
shima Games brochure refers to 
the inclusion among the 
organizing committee of “per- 
sons with learning and 
experience". They believe that 
wisdom comes with age. 
Yamasaki tells how be in- 
troduced several years ago a 
system of making suggestions by 
his 27,000 employees, “and now 
we have about two million 
suggestions a year**. 

He was in his younger days a 
centre forward with Mazda 

Football Cub. who three times 
won the Emperor's Cup. the 
national knock-out com- 
petition. His inspiration has 
helped the city start work on a 
new track and field stadium, 
separate football and hockey 
stadiums and a new indoor 
swimming pool for 1994. Al- 
ready way beyond retiring age, 
he is as full of drive today as he 
must have been when he helped 
to piece together the remnants 
of what would subsequently 
become one of the great motor 

We say that the Japanese copy 
the expertise of foreigners and. 
then do il better, but they also 
learn from themselves. “We 
learned a lesson when Nagoya 
failed in its bid in 1981 to stage 
the Olympics which were 
awarded to Seoul instead." 
Yamasaki says. “We organized 
our campaign from the bottom 
upwards, not downwards from 
the top."

Snooker's “magnificent

have plenty to live up to, AH are 
highly motivated, well disci- 
plined and organized, as was 
seen in last week's inaugural 
Matchroom tournament at 
Southend, where Willie Thome 
defeated Steve Davis in the finsL 
Jimmy White, the newest 
member id 1 the firm, was unable 
to pbty in the tournament, 
having signed his five-year con- 
tract with Hearn too late to be 
mdnded in the draw. Inst ead, 

White took part in the Lang's 
Scottish Masters to urnam ent in 
Glasgow, where Cliff Thor bora, 
of Canada, retained the title. 

Four of last season's six 
Matc h room Professionals— Da- 
m, D ennis Taylor, Thorne and 
Terry Griffiths - were among 
the . top right in die prize- 
winning list and all six were in 
the top 12 platings. The prize 
money earned by tike team 
amonted to more than 30 per 
cent of die total prize money 
available cm the world tirenit. 

With the help of Us team. 

Hearn has promoted snooker ail 
over the world, haring shown 
particular interest in its develop- 
ment in the Far East. His 
activities with the Lord'S Tav- 
erners cricket XI gives Hearn a 
break from snooker; bat as far as 
his management and promo- 
tional interests are concerned he 
insists on nothing but the best. 

O’Boye in 
the pink 

Joe O'Boye, a former English 
amateur champion, pulled of a 
surprise yesterday when he beat 
Cliff Thorbura in the Rothmans 
Grand Prix in Bristol, only 36 
hours after the Canadian former 
world champion had wen die 
Scottish Masters. 

O'Boye now joins Les Dodd, a 
former taxi driver, when the 
tournament moves to be tele- 
vised at the Hexagon, Reading, 
on October 18. Dodd recorded 
another upset in the third roand 
when be. beat Kirk Stevens, of 
fawaiia , 5-4 on the pink ball m 
the final frame. 

O'Boye, of Leicester, was in 
sparkling form in a tense contest 
lasting four hours against the 
No. 3 seed as be bunt breaks of 
72 and 68 and then took took 
command of foe final frame to 
win 5-4. 

Dodd and the ninth seeded 
however bad a topsy- 
turvy match. Stevens lost four 
frames in su c c fs s ion before 
bouncing back, but the English- 
man then kept admirable steely 

nerve to win the dec id er — a trait 
also shown by John Parrott, who

on the 

New Delhi (Reuter) — On the 
eve of today's one-day inter- 
national between Australia and 
India in Hyderabad, the Austra- 
lian tourists denied yesterday 
they had used unsporting tactics 
in Monday's tied Test match iu 

Alan Crompton, the tour 
manager, described as 
“nonsense" accusations in the 
Indian Press that Allan Border, 
the captain, and Greg Matthews 
and Ray Bright, who each took 
five wickets, tried to distract 
India's batsmen during the final 

Border had been accused of 
aiguing with the ' umpires and 
delaying play after each deliv- 
ery, as India chased a target of 
348 on the final day of the first 
Test. In the event, India were all 
out for 347 off the penultimate 
ball making it only the second 
tie in Test history. 

The other tied Test was 
between Australia and the West 
Indies, in Brisbane in 1960. 
That also ended on the penul- 
timate ball and the Australian 
team included Bobby Simpson, 
who, iu bis capacity as cricket 
manager of the current team, 
was present to watch Monday's 
drama unfold. 

“There was a hokl-up after 
almost every delivery as the 
Australians raised one dispute 
after another," the Times oj 
India repotted. “They were 
taunting the players and aiguing 
with the umpires . . . trying to 
stem the flow of runs and 
disrupt the batsmen's 
concentration. On an unforget- 
table day, their unpardonable 
gamesmanship left a bitter taste 
in the mouth." 

Another newspaper. The 
Statesman, said Border pro- 
voked umpire D. N. Dhoti wafa 
to such an extent by continually 
questioning his decisions, that 
at one point the Australian 
captain looked like being sent 

Crompton, however, declined 
to comment on the standard of 
umpiring or on Border’s behav- 
iour. “That is something best 
left on the field," he said. 
Replying to the charge that 
Australia held up play. Cromp- 
ton said the over rate was 
“understandably slow due to the 
extreme weather conditions" — 
the ' temperature reaching 45 
degrees centigrade, with 85 per 
cent humidity. 


Open contests 
step nearer 

A new formal for inter- 
national matches in Britain will 
bea feature of the clash with the 
United Stales at Darlington 
from October 31 to November 
1. Instead of the traditional 
head-to-head races involving 
two competitors from each 
country, every event will be 
supplemented by two swimmers 
who will qualify through heats 
earlier in the day. 

It is the first step towards 
changing internationals into 
open-type meetings- 


Dew’s return to the fold 
boosts English hopes 

By Richard Eaton 

Martin Dew, unavailable for is to be tightened, however, it 

mm-!, of last season, returns to 
the England squad for only the 
second time this year, in next 
month's three-match series 
apinrf China. 

England's leading doubles 
player. Dew — a past European 
men's doubles and All England 
mixed doubles champion — is 
regarded as one of the main 
Instigators of a players' petition 
to remove Jake Downey last 
season from the England 
manager's post. 

It was principally this which 
kept him out of the Thomas Cap 
campaign in Mnlbeim and Ja-

team championships in Upp-

HtS return occurs with farther 
speculation over the future role 
of Downey. No decision has yet 
been announced on the 
manager's role this season, bat 
there are suggestions that dif- 
ferent managers may be used for 
events overseas, with Downey 
concentrating on coaching. 

If Downey's managerial load 

will inevitably be presente d as a 
victory for the nine petitioners. 
This would ooiy be part of the 
reason, though, since toe Bad- 
minton Association of Engl a n d 
has always seen the manager's 
position as temporary, before 
separating the job into two roles. 

Dew’s availability has come 
about through the advice of

been a constant problem in 
Dew's absence. There were three 
defeats in the European zone of 
the Thomas Cup and two more 
against their old rivals, Malay- 
sia. in toe finals, which vnrtuallf 
settled England's fate. Further- 
more, failed to win a 

men's doubles gold medal in the 
Commonwealth Games, which

call on 
Bale for 

By Rex Bellamy 

Tennis Correspondent 

Stuart Bale, a left-hander 
who lives at St John’s' Wood, 
London, has seldom been in 
the news since March, when 
he lad an exploratory (vexa- 
tion on his left knee. Until a 
few days ago he would prob- 
ably have laughed at the idea 
that he would be paid to spend 
a week practising with Boris 
Becker, twice Wimbledon 
champion. But next weekend 
Bale will fly to Germany to do 
just that. 

Bale, aged 22, has yet to 
represent Britain in the Davis 
Cop competition. But 20 
months ago he played for his 
country in the European team 
championship at Essen and 
impressed some good judges. 
Germans included. From 
October 3 to 5, Germany will 
play Ecuador in a Davis Cup 
tie at Essen on the same court. 

Ecuador's leading player, 
Andres Gomez, is a left- 
hander with a formidable ser- 
vice and the Germans wanted 
to practise with a similar 
player. Their coa ch , Nikola 
Pitic, is the right type but the 
wrong age (47) for intensive 
dally practice. So the Ger- 
mans, who have long mem- 
ories, decided that Bale was 
the man for the job. 

In addition to Becker, Bale 
will be working with Eric 
.Jefen, who beat Kevin Correa 
on his way to the last 

Ideal preparation 
for Telford

16 at Wimbledon. Except for 
the fact that his serving arm 
may be overworked, the week 
in Essen should provide Bale 
with ideal preparation im- 
mediately before the Refuge 
Assurance national champion- 
ships, to be played at Telford 
on a similar Supreme Court 
surface from October 6-12. 

The reigning British cham- 
pion, Jeremy Bates, had to > 
retire after the first set of his 
match with Diego Perez, of 
Uruguay, in Barcelona on 
Monday. Bates, probably un- 
wise to play, aggravated an old 
knee injury. In retrospect he 
may also have been unwise to 
play football last week in 
Hamburg, where he scored 
twice during an impressive 
performance in a match be- 
tween tennis players 
representing Germany and the 
Rest of the World. Bates is to 
see a specialist this week 

It seems unlikely that Bates 
will be fit enough to retain his 
title at Telford, where he wffl 
be the top seed. Bale seeded 
ninth, will probably have to 
beat Mike Walker in order to 
confront Bates hi a qvaiter- 
final. The draw was made 
yesterday. The seedings ac- 
cord with the rankings issaed 
by the players’ associations 
except that Virginia Wade, 

A congenial 

who no longer has a ranking, 
has been seeded fifth. Miss 
Wade was runner-up to Anne 
Hobbs last year. 

The seedings suggest that 
the women's quarter-finals 
should be as follows: Jo Done 
v Joanne Louis (who heat 
Miss Dune last year), Sara 
Gomer v Julie Salmon. Mbs 
Wade v Miss Hobbs and Sally 
Reeves v Annabel Croft. The 
predicted men's pairings are: 
Bates v Walker, Nick Fnlwood 
v Colin DowdeswelL Stephen 
Botfield v Andrew Castle, and 
Jason Goodall v Stephen 

This wOl be the fourth year 
of the championships, -which 
serve as a congenial compet- 
itive rendezvous for British 
players and gives them a 
chance to win more money 
than most of them could on toe 
international circuit. The total 

prize frmd has been raised to 
£100,560, of which £93£60 
will be at stake at TetionL The 
other £6.600 was allocated to 
the area finals. The singles 
winners will receive £8300 
each, the nmners-np £5300. 
Even players losing to the first 
round of both singles and 
doobles will collect a total of 
£120 each. 

Joy and pain 
for India’s 
two specialists 

San Francisco (Reuter) — 

Ramesh Krishnu and Vijsy 
Amritraj, India's Davis Cup 
singles specialists, enjoyed 

mixed fortunes on the opening 
day of the San Francisco grand 
prix tennis tournament. 

Krishitan. one of the game's 
stylists and toe seventh seed 
here, swept aside American 
Steve DeVries, a wffd-card en- 
try, 6-2. 64) in the first round, 
while Amritraj, giving away 14 
years to Jaime Yzaga, of Peru, 
was edged out 7-fc, 3-6, 6-4. 

Amritrai, who divides his tone 
between filming a television 
programme to the United Stares 
and playing tennis, was a service 
break up in both toe first two 
sets and missed five chances to 
break Yzaga whDe leading 2-1 to 
the third. Amritraj, aged 32, said 
he continued to pby the circuit 
mainly to prepare for Davis Cap 
ties. John McEnroe, fresh front 
his grand prix win, plays his 
first-round match today. 






Blinkered decision in the face of goodwill 



■ 4 


By John Smith, 
Executive director, 
Luton Town FC 

Luton Town’s expulsion from the 
Littlewoods Cup by the Football 
League on Monday represents a 
victory for hooligans everywhere. 
The mindless minority which has 
latched onto our ailing national 
sport can only be encouraged by the 
Football League management 
committee's decision. 

To the hooligan and tbe yob. the 
message seems to be: "Football 
regards short-term financial self- 
interest and the result of an individ- 
ual match as more important than 
defeating violence and loutish 

What is so surprising is that the 
present management committee is 
so obviously out of touch with 
public opinion. Since our ex pulsion, 
this dub's switchboard has been 
flooded with calls offering help and 
support, from all over tbe country. 

What does trot surprise me is that 
the committee has no appreciation 

of what our “home supporters only" 
policy has achieved already this 
season. . 

For, despite our standing invita- 
tion. the committee has not at- 
tended or been represented at any of 
our three home matches. This is in 
stark contrast with the Football 
Association, which will have the 
benefit of detailed knowledge when 
it comes to consider our position 
regarding the FA Cup. next month. 

On the evidence of Monday's 
decision, one would be forgiven for 
thinking everything in football was 
rosy. That the game bad not lost 1 ‘A 
million spectators in the last year. 
Thai there had been no HeyseL, no 
Bradford City fire, no battle of the 
Beatrix. Certainly that there had 
been no thugs at Bradford again on 
Saturday, or that Cardiff s own fans 
had been banned from Exeter after 
disturbances the same afternoon. 

Ironically, the present League 

management committee has gone 
back on tbe decision of its prede- 

That committee voted, on May 
22. to allow Luton to operate its 
membership system, which ex- 
dudes visiting fans, in Littlewoods 
Cup matches this season. 

The next day, the annual re- 
election of the committee having 
intervened, the new committee 
reversed tbe decision. Throughout 
the summer, we requested it to 
reconsider. We were told to abide by 
the rules: We did. No tickets were 
sold in advance, so none bad to be 
made available to our visitors. 

The league interprets that rule 
differently. The committee said our 
policy would have given us an 
unfair home advantage and 
awarded the tie to Cardiff How- 
ever. the rule does provide for a 
management committee discretion 


French boat to sail 
despite late arrival 

Fremantle. Australia (Reuter) 
— A British move- to have one of 
the two French entries for the 
America's Cup series disquali- 
fied because of its (ate arrival 
feiled yesterday when other 
challengers decided not to join 
the objection. 

The Challenge France syn- 
dicate. which arrived here hours 
alter the September 1 5 deadline, 
would line up with the 12 other 
challengers from six countries 
when the series starts on Octo- 
ber 5. race organizers said. 

The status of the French 
challenge from the Societe 
Nautique de Marseilles was 
thrown into doubt when the 
British challenger formally ob- 
jected late last week. 

The French boat arrived late 
because of a mechanical failure 
on the ship carrying the boat to 
Fremantle. Eric Ogden,the 
syndicate's project manager, 

“The decision is in the best 

interests of sportsmanship. Only 
one syndicate voted against our 
acceptance — that was the 
British — but five took up a 
position in our favour,” he said. 

Under the rules of the com- 
petition the Italian yacht dub, 
Costa Smeralda, which is 
organizing the foreign elimina- 
tion series, needed a two-thirds 
majority to exdude the French. 

Harold Cvdmore. the skipper 
of the British challenge, was 
disappointed but philosophical 
about the decision. “We are out 
there to win and the decision 
taken by the other challenge 
syndicates shows that their atti- 
tude is very different to our 
own.” be said in London yes- 

The 13 foreign syndicates will 
be racing among one another to 
find a challenger for a final in 
February next year against 
Australia who ended the 
Americans* 1 32-year hold on the 
cup in 1983. 

Martin’s short cut 
regains h im lead 

By Barry 

* Tuna Marine Voortrekker. 
the 60fi South African, yachi 
sailed by .John Martin, was back 
in the lead of the BOC Single- 
handed Round the World race 
yesterday as the fleet, down to

at sea on the first 7. 100-mile leg 
from Newport to Cape Town. 

Guy Bemardin. the French- 
man sailing the similar-sized

Equator, almost 24* west shortly 
after dawn on Sunday. Although 
Martin crossed five hours later 
his posiiion was 180 miles 
further east — 90 miles closer to 
the Cape. 

The Doldrums and faulty self- 
steering systems have proved to 
be the greatest handicap to most 
competitors this week, though 
Dick McBride, the New Zea- 
lander. was yesterday busy 
clearing up the broken rigging 
on his 60ft Neptune's Express 
after being dismasted during a 
squall close to the Equator. 
McBride, who had been lying 
fourth up' until yesterday and 
was one of 10 finishers in the 
last BOC Challenge, was unhurt 
and heading towards Recife, 
Brazil to make repairs.

eleventh place, reported similar 
problems this week, telling race 
control that he had gone without ;

to break through the windless 
Doldrums as quickly as 

Hal Roth, the American au- 
thor. reported a- very different 
experience while totally be- 
calmed on Monday. A hammer- 
head shark has been tracking his 
Class II entry American Flag 
with such persistence during 
recent days that it has killed all 
inclinations he had to go for a 
refreshing swim.

BOC race four years ago after 
being pitched into the Southern

Marathon man stays in London 

John Campbell. New 
Zealand's national marathon 
champion for tbe past two years, 
has toned his back on his 
homeland and set up boose in 
Britain because he believes tbe 
move will tether his inter- 
national career. Campbell, who 
represented his country in toe 
world cross-country champion- 
ships in March and in the 
Commonwealth Games in Au- 
gust, is fr us trate d by what he 
describes as “no progress'’ hi 
athletics in New Zealand. 

“Earope is where the issuing 
is happening," be says, “and we 
have been left behind." When

Campbell, whose best time of 
2hr 12mia 38sec was set 10 
months ago, is critical of tbe way 
athletics has been allowed to 
stagnate in his ceontry. Witbest 
a Walker, Qoax or vhum to fly 
toe nation's flag at toe forefront 
of competition, Campbell 
blames lack of incentive and 
insensitive administration for

They left good athletes behind. I 
was the only one in the marathon 

and that was crazy because I 
needed a team to get the best oat

her athletes and they are treated 
with respect.

which it should, is the interests of 
football have exercised. 

For what is more important? The 
possible advantage to be gained 
from a few hundred supporters or 
the greater good of a so fir 
successful experiment vital to tbe 
future of football as a whole. 

We are desperately sad at this 
short-sighted and unwise decision 
but greatly encouraged by tbe 
groundsweu of public opinion in 
our favour. This club has no 
intention of changing its policy 
now. That would mean abandoning 
a policy we believe in whole- 
heartedly. Abandoning our commit- 
ment to the local community to rid 
their lives of ibe disturbance follows 
directly from the presence of visit- 
ing supporters. Finally, it would 
mean rejecting the goodwill of the 
1 8,000 supporters who have flocked 
to join our chib because of its safe 
and friendly atmosphere 


happy as 

With tbe prospect of a 
confrontation between the 
United States and tbe Soviet 
Union in the final, the eleventh 
men's world championship gets 
under way today with first- 
round matches being played in 
four French cities. 

The four teams in each group 
will all play three games in the 
elimination phase — in Mont- 
pellier. Tourcoing. Clermont- 
Ferrand and Orleans — with the 
top three teams from each going 
through to the semi-fuiai rounds 
in Nantes and Toulouse. The 
final will be played in Paris on 
October 4. 

The Russians are the defend- 
ing champions, having won 
their sixth world title in Aigen- 
tina four years ago. Added to 
that they have been Olympic 
champions three times since 
1960 and have a highly experi- 
enced team. For their part, the 
United States, showing the 
beneficial effects of a year-round 
training prog ra mme, have im- 
proved greatly in recent years. 

Thirteenth in the 1982 
championships, the United 
States — in the absence of the 
Russians — won the gold medal 
at the Los Atmeles Olympics two 
years later. Then in the 1985 
World Cup they beat their 
greatest rivals in a five-set finaL 

The story does not end there. 
In tbe Goodwill Gaines in 
Moscow this summer, tbe hosts 
defeated the Americans in an- 
other five-set finaL but lost three 
of five matches when touring 
the United States in August As 
a result the Olympic champions 
are regarded as favourites fin: 
the world title, something that 
Marv Dunphy, the coach, wel- 
comes. “It’s only natural for 
them to consider us on the top 
of the heap,** he said. “The other 
teams come at us hard. How- 
ever, it's a nice place to be 
compared to where we were." 

Dunphy’s team have been 
drawn to play in Orleans, south 
of Paris, in a group including 
Japan. Greece and Argentina. 
Tbe Russians* will play their 
preliminary matches in Tour- 
coing. in the north, with Cuba, 
Poland and Taipei. 

The hosts,, regarded as an 
outside threat are based in 
Montpellier with China. Ven- 
ezuela and Italy, while the final 
group is made up with teams 
from Brazil Czechoslovakia, 
Bulgaria and Egypt

At Myreside, in perfect con- 
ditions of bright sunshine and 
the merest hint of a- breeze. 
Edinburgh beat the Japanese 
touring side. 

The large and enthusiastic 
crowd saw Edinburgh put im- 
mediate pressure on the visitors 
with two high up and unders 
from S Scott using E Johnston's 
pace in . the follow up. In 10 
minutes, however, it was Japan 
who took the lead. Miyamoto 
took a dean line out catch fed 
Hayashi, his captain, who drove 
and sent back a perfect ball for 
Matsuo to waltz through on the 
narrow side. The same player 
missed a difficult conversion. 

Wyllie’s restart kick went 
straight into touch but be re- 
deemed himself with a long 
petialty kick to touch after the 
visitors were penalized in the 
resultant scrum. Four minutes 

later yet another Japanese 
infringement allowed S Scon to 
kick bis first penalty. 

Edinburgh were, howe^fe 
still not settled to a game asa 
with Kurihara, Sakuraba and 
Miyemoto winning the lines-out 
with ease the home side were 
struggling for possession. Their 
edginess was demonstrated by 
the number of poor passes and 
unforced handling emus. This 
was not helped by Japan's 
ability to bottle up the ball in 
open play. 

In 28 minutes Japan went 
further ahead when Yoshino 
touched down following a bout 
of slick handling by Matsuo and 
Hirao. Matsuo converted.

score from Carl Davis. The Eagle 
deserves its resurrection, 
being one of the last best and 
most characteristic films of 
Rudolph Valentino, who died 60 
years ago. The story was 
ostensibly derived from Pushkin 
but owed much more to the 
Douglas Fairbanks vehicle, The 
Mark ofZorro. Valentino 
plays a Cossack lieutenant who 
roiels the amorous advances 
of the Czarina, Catherine the 
Greet, and tune himself into 
a Robin Hood figure to avenge 
the seizure of his father's 
estate, eventually finding true 

love. Despite certain 
crudities, it is easy to appreciate 
the magnetism that made 
Valentino one of the biggest 

sifent stars. ■ 

(BBC2, 750pm) recalls one of 
the heroic achievements of 
early Soviet Russia, the buBdtog 
of the Turkestan to Siberia 
railway between 1927 and 1930. 
It was a battle against 
windstorms ana extreme heat 
and to start with, until 
mechanical diggers came along, 
the basic tool was the spade. 

Tree to its format of using 
archive Rm, the programme 
draws on a classic Soviet 
documentary, Tltrksfo, and 
supplements Its vivid cascade of 
images with a new 
commentary and music.

FA say 
no to 
by TV 

By John Goodbody 

The Football Association 
yesterday turned down an 
est im ated £500,000 to have the 
FA Cup Semi-finals shown lire 
On teferistoa. BBC and ITV 
had began negotiations with 
tiie FA for tire coverage of the 
games, hut yesterday the 
Cornea decided to continue 
(hen* policy of recent seasons. 

The two ftniimrfs will alter- 
nate coverage for every round 
of tiie FA Cop from the third 
round on January 10, when the 
first and second division dubs 
eater the competition, until the 
semi-finals, to be bdd on April 
11. As usual both BBC and 
ITV win also show the final on 
May 16. 

A spokesman for Indepen- 
dent Television said yes- 
terday : “We would have loved 
to have shown the semi-finals 
in addition to the other rands. 
The possibility had been ex- 
plored din in g negotiations. 
The plan was to have them 
both on the Simday with 
different kick-off times. 

“ITV would have shown one 
game and BBC the other. We 
would probably have tossed 
for choice of games as we do 
when we decide wh ich ch annel 
screens the earlier rounds. 

“One leading FA official 
has been quoted as saying that 
he believes there is too much 
live football on television. So 
this is presumably the reason 
for their refusaL" 

A total of 22 League, FA 
Cop and Littiewoods Cup 
games are being shown live 
this season. A spokesman for 
the Football Association said 
yesterday's decision was taken 
“without much dbcnsstaT. 

Inquiry on 
by the FA 

The Football Association 
are to set np an inquiry into 
last Saturday's violence at the 
Odsall Stadium, Bradford 
when 64 people were arrested 
during and after the second 
division game between Brad- 
ford and Leeds (John 
Goodbody writes). 

No date has been settled Aw 
the investigation which will 
take place at the stadium, 
currently being used for 
Bradford's borne games be- 
cause Valley Parade is bang 
rebuilt after being burnt down 
in the lire last year in which 56 
people died. 

A Football Association 
spokesman said yesterday that 
any decision to reimpose the 
ban on visiting Leeds support- 
ers would take place after the 
inquiry had been completed. 

During last Saturday's vi- 
olence Leeds fans, attending 
their first match for 12 
months, caused a fire to start 
in one comer of the ground 
forcing 13,000 spectators to 
stampede in terror. 

Success can wait 
for City’s 


. Whoever replaces Billy 
McNeill as manager of Man- 
chester City - and the indica- 
tions yesterday were that his 
assistant, Jimmy Frizzell, re- 
mains the most likely choice — 
he will have one thing to thank 
his predecessor for be will 
take the job with no great 
pressure for immediate 

McNeflTs neatest legacy to 
Manchester City in his three 
seasons with the club was that 
as well as restoring their first 
division status, albeit shakily, 
he brought stability and calm 
to the heated atmosphere 
engendered by the reigns of 
Malcolm Allison and John 

Those worthies had taken 
the dub to the verge of 
bankruptcy in their efforts to 
fulfil their chairman. Peter 
Swale's, ambition to overtake 
Manchester United. McNeill's 
achievement in bringing back 
dignity to the club after the 
excesses of his predecessors, 
the respect he commands as a 
patently straightfbward man 
and as one of the outstanding 
players in Celtic's history, and 
his previous success as a 
manager in Scotland, how- 
ever. cannot completely dis- 
guise the feet that the 
inheritance he has left is a 
mixed one. 

A record of only one win, 
against Wimbledon on the 
opening day of the season, in 
their last 21 competitive 
matches, speaks for itself 
McNeil's ability to get the best 
out of the limited group of 
pjayes is unquestionable, but 
his dealings on the transfer 
market have been less than 
convincing. McNeill, of 
course, has been hamstrung by 

By Peter Ban

and, though they may extend Ti 
East Germany’s miserable di

Tolmie, Parlane, Melrose and 
Phillips made short-term 
contributions of varying qual- 
ity, but none of his signings 
satisfactorily solved City’s 
most pressing need, a regular 
supply of goals. 

It is bard to resist the 
conclusion that two or three 
players of higher quality 
would have given a better 
return on an expenditure 
appraoching £1 million than a 
series of buys reflecting short- 
term expediency. 

Some City supporters in- 
deed believe that McNeill's 
successor will be inheriting a 
worse squad than that which 
greeted him in 1983, although 
the youth team is beginning to 
yield some hope for the future. 
In City’s straitened circum- 
stances, it is a daunting pros- 
pect, although Joe Royle, 
Tommy Docherty and Trevor 
Cherry have thrown their hats 
into the ring. 

The financial restrictions, 
however, seem to point to- 
wards the appointment of- 
Jimmy Frizzell, who operated 
on a tight budget at Oldham 
for ten years, with that instinc- 
tive survivor Tony Book as 
his assistant It will be a vote 
for continuing calm, but the 
task of keeping City in the fiist 
division mil be formidable. 

Oxford in 
need of

Oxford linked begin their 
defence of the new 
Littiewoods Challenge Cup 
against GflGngham at Manor 
Road tonight knowing that 
another successful ran is need- 
ed if they are to balance the. 
books. Although Oxford lost 
£166,000 in the last financial 
war, they made £250,000 
from the final alone, and Jim 
Hunt, the club's secretary, 
said: “The further we go in the 
competition this year the bet- 
ter. It would be catastrophic 
for us or any first division dub 
to go out in the second 

Maurice Evans, the Oxford 
manager, has warned his play- 
ers against complacency in the 
early rounds. '‘Gillingham 
may be a third division side," 
he said, "but they have a good 
record here, and l happened to 
be in the ground on their last 
visit in the third division 
when Oxford had about 28 
comers and lost 1-0." 

Ian Bunerworth is not 
among the squad of 14 players 
standing by for Nonrich City 
at Frtsrfconmgli because Not- 
tingham Forest do not want 
their on-loan centre half cup 
tied. Rosario, whose previous 
first team appearances have 
all been in attack, looks set to 
play in defence. The manager, 
Ken Brown's son, Kenneth 
junior, is also in the squad. 

Suprisingly for the manager 
of a Nottingham Forest team 
that has sewed 12 gpals in its 
last two games. Brian Clough 
still has reservations. They 
concern his defence. Before 
Forest's tie at Brighton. 
Cough, who has told his team 
to forget their top of the table 
position, said: “We have been 
on the receiving end more 
than most and amply must 
get it together at the back." 
Forest are unchanged for the 
seventh successive time. 

Paul Hardyman, 

Portsmouth's former England 
Under-21 full-back, is strag- 
gling to recover from injury 
for the game at Wrexham. 
Hardyman was detained in 
hospital overnight after being 
carried off and sent off at the 
same time, at Stoke on Satur- 
day. His two-match suspen- 
sion does not start until after 
Saturday's second division 
match with Huddersfield but 
his injury may, in any case, 
rule him out until then. 

Everton, who take on New- 
port at Goodison Park, have a 
doubt over Kevin _ Sheedy, 
who has a groin strain which 
forced his substitution during 
Sunday's win against Man- 
chester United. United, them- 
selves, are determined to there

are down to only 1 3 fit players. 

Walsall's already delayedtie 
with MBlwall at Fellows Park 
is off ag ain. Several Walsall 
players are still recovering 
from a mystery virus which 
swept through the dub last 
week, causing the postpone- 
ment of Saturday's mini divi- 
sion game with Swindon. The 
first leg will now be on 
October 7 and the return at 
The Den on October 14.

20-minute appearance in the 
friendly against West Ger- 
many tonight. 

The former European foot-

squad in Mexico, but played 
only 1 9 minutes as a substitute 
in the 2-0 fust round win over 
West Germany, a result the

been an international player

France in Paris.
