London today for talks with 
Dr David Owen in an attempt 
to rescue the Alliance from the 
crisis into which it has been 
plunged by the Liberal leader's 
defeat on nuclear defence at 
the party assembly in 
Eastbourne. 

He will leave the assembly 
this afternoon and travel by 
helicopter to London Tor a 
television interview with Dr 
Owen tonight in which they 
will try to start repairing the 
Alliance's battered credibility. 

But their talks beforehand 
will take place against the 
threat of sharply deteriorating 
relations between the Liberals 
and the Social Democratic 
Party where there is dismay at 
the decision of the assembly to 
reject the compromise plan for 
an Anglo-French deterrent ini- 
tiative. and the failure of Mr 
Steel to deliver his party. In 


endorse a joint Alliance de- 
fence policy for the general 
election, baited on the Euro- 
pean initiative and worked 
out by the two leaders and the 
parties' policy committees. 

Such a conference, which 
was backed at a late-night 
meeting of Liberal MPS.

MP for Rochdale, is to

election, reversing his decision

Mr Steel moved yesterday 
to restore his own authority in 
the Liberal Party by backing 
new moves to lighten disci-

whom deserted him when he 
most needed their support. 

He made clear that he

There was also criticism 
from within the SDP. There

to avoid raising the tem-

As a result Mr Steel at the 
urging of Mr David Alton, his 
chief whip, is to introduce the 
rule of collective responsibil- 
ity in the parliamentary party. 
Party spokesmen who defy the 
line will be dismissed. 

Mr Hughes's speech was 
being held responsible for 
swaying the vote. Mr Alton 
said one ‘ or two of his col- 
leagues. because they were 
parliamentarians, may have 
lulled the conference into a

Daniloff 
talks at 
critical 
stage 

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

High-level talks between 
American and Soviet officials 
last night reached a critical 
stage in trying to secure the 
release of Mr Nicholas Dani- 
loff, the journalist held in 
Moscow on a spying charge. 

A senior Administration of- 
ficial said the Soviet Union 
had not made any acceptable 
proposals. But Soviet officials 
said there were “good 
chances" of settling quickly 
the cases of Mr Daniloff and 
Mr Gennady Zakharov, a 
Soviet phycisist accused of 
espionage by the US. 

According to one account i 
yesterday, Moscow is propos- 
ing the expulsion of Mr 
Daniloff. followed later by the 
release of an important dis- 
sident. Then the US would 
allow Mr Zakharov to return 
home. American negotiators, 
however, are determined that 
the final formula must not 
show any trade between Mr 
Daniloff and Mr Zakharov. 

Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of Stale, and Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister, held 
two unannounced meetings in 
New York on Tuesday, where 
they are attending the United 
Nations General 

Assembly. 

Moscow appears to be anx- 
ious to settle the Daniloff 
aflair in order to dear the way 
for an early superpower sum- 
mit. Mr Gennady Gerasimov, 
the chief Soviet Foreign Min- 
istry spokeman, said in New 
York yesterday that there were 
three obstacles to a summit — 
the case of Mr Zakharov, the 
Daniloff aflair. and the expul- 
sion of 25 personnel from the 
Soviet mission to the UN. 

A date for Mr Zakharov's 
trial was to. have been set by 
Judge Joseph McLaughlin in 
the US District Court in New 
York yesterday, but pros- 
ecutors instead asked for the 
appointment of a security 
specialist to protect any classi- 
fied documents that might 
-come lip in the proceedings.

The offer was made during a 
private meeting on Tuesday 
night with Mr Boris Shcherbi- 
na, Deputy Prime Minister of 
the Soviet Union, who took 
charge after the nuclear reac- 
tor exploded at Chernobyl 

They met before .the start of 
a conference of the Interna- 
tional Atomic Energy Agency, 
which is working on the first 
international code of beha- 
viour in nuclear accidents. It 
will oblige countries to tell 
each other about nuclear acci- 
dents that threaten to spread 
radiation . 

They also discussed how to 
encourage adoption of an anti- 
terrorism treaty, which would 
give better protection against 
sabotage and the theft of 
material which could be used 
to make a crude bomb. 

Mr Shcherbina said Russia 
will not consider compensa- 
tion for disruption caused to 
countries most affected by 
fallout from the Chernobyl ac- 
cident The issue has surfaced 
as one of the discordant notes 
at the conference.

Bar reviews 
complaints 
system and 
cash awards 

B}' Fnums Gibb, Lcgul ASurs Correspondent 

The Bar is looking at its committee's lay members, 
complaints machinery to see if The committee already hi 


reforms in the interests of the 
public are needed, including 
whether there should be a 
power to award compensation 
m minor negligence cases. 

There has been a rise in the 
number of complaints against 
barristers this year in line with 
the much higher public pro file 
that the Bar has adopted. The 
total is likely to reach 300 
compared with fewer than 200 
in previous years. 

Last year three barristers 
were disbarred and one rep- 
rimanded. This year, in line 
with the rise in complaints, 
the total is likely to be more 
than double. 

Bui the review of the com- 
plaints sy-stem is taking place 
as part of a widescale overhaul 
of the Bar's code of conduct 
under Mr Mark Liitman, QC, 
to bring it into line with 
modem needs and require- 
ments. 

The main complaints body 
of the Bar is its professional 
conduct committee, com- 
posed ofbarrisiers and laymen 
chaired by the Bar vice- 
chairman. It has powers to 
investigate and sift all com- 
plaints about barristers, 
including inefficiency and 
maladministration.

Teacher 

‘fairly 

dismissed’ 

A school woodwork tech- 
nician was fairly dismissed 
from his post at a north 
London school after writing 
“wogland” across an Asian 
schoolboy's work, an indus- 
trial tribunal ruled yesterday. 

Mr Leslie Ostergaard, aged 
62, of Longslone Avenue; 
Willesden, north west Lon- 
don. had challenged Brent 
council's derision to dismiss 
him because he had already 
been punished and had apolo- 
gized to the boy. aged 16. 

But Mr Eric Wrintmore. the 
chairman or the tribunal sit- 
ting at Chelsea, said: “We 
have no hesitation in saying 
this was a very offensive and 
foolish thing to write. That it 
was written and on a pupil’s 
work only makes it worse. 

“Mr Ostergaard was dealing 
with a coloured pupil in a 
school in which 80 percent of 
pupils are from ethnic minor- 
ities, in an area where the 
whole subject of race relations 
is a sensitive one", he added. 

Mr John Gallagher, 
representing Mr Ostergaard 
had told the hearing that Brent 
Council broke “every prin- 
cipal of English justice when 
it dismissed Mr Ostergaard. 

.“The local authority acted 
manifestly unfairly in trying to 
punish a man twice for the 
same matter." Mr Ostergaard 
had received an oral warning 
from the headmaster. 

The council had acted after 
a teacher reported the in- 
cident, he said. 

After the tribunal’s derision 
Mr Ostergaard said: “It upsets 
roe that I have been branded 
as a racist, I am not a racist at

whicb was accepted as a 
joke."

that up to 100.000 people a

Heart transplants ~ 

Rift over ‘exhibitionism’ 


Professor Magdi 
was striving yesterday to heal 
the wounds of a public aigu- 
ment with the director of the 
European transplant network, 
who accused the heart surgeon 
of “exhibitionism and pub- 
licity-seeking”. 

The accusations from Dr 
Bernard Cohen came after 
Professor Yacoub's operation 
last weekend in which a boy 
aged 10 weeks was given a new 
heart and lungs at Harefield 
Hospital, west London. Sub- 
sequent press coverage dis- 
closed that the donor organs 
came from the body of a five- 
day old child in Belgium. 

Dr Cohen was reported 
yesterday as threatening to 
strike Professor Yacoub from 
the Euro Transplant Centre's 
list of doctors who could be 
offered donor organs from 
Continental hospitals and 
health authorities, unless 
"serious promises of 
confidentiality" were forth- 
coming. 

“We arc unpleasantly sur-

Yacoub prised by Professor Yacoub's minded and is emphatic about 
exhibitionism and publicity 


and 

seeking once again. It has 
happened more, than once 
before and we have warned 
him many limes. This time I 
am extremely angry," Dr Co- 
hen was quoted as saying at 
the centre in Lieden. in The 
Netherlands. 

“Every time he goes out for 
publicity, by announcing 
where he has flown to collect 
organs, the donor's family 
suffers great distress and in the 
end this makes it more diffi- 
cult for us to obtain organs." 

The accusations prompted 
telephone calls yesterday be- years, including 69 in which 
tween the two men and of-. ' the patient also received do- 


the need for confidentiality in 
references lo organ donors. 

The surgeon Dew with col- 
leagues to Belgium last Friday 
night to collect the infant heart 
and lungs- The operation was 
performed on Saturday morn- 
ing and announced by Hare- 
field on Monday. 

The hospital organized 
press conference at which 
Professor Yacoub. making a 
rare public appearance at the 
request of the hospital, gave 
details of the baby's condition. 

He has carried out 367 heart 
transplants in the past six 


ficials at Harefield Hospital, 
who were also trying to repair 
the damage. 

“It would be tragic if a 
shortage of donors resulted 
from what we believe to be no 
more than a misunder- 
standing.” Mr Jonathan 
Street, a spokesman for the 
hospital, said- “Mr Yacoub is 
anything but pubiicitv- 


nor lungs. A total of 243 of 
those patients are surviving, 
among them 45 of the heart- 
lung recipients. 

He has succeeded in lower- 
ing the age at which such 
operations-can be offered but 
was criticized two years ago 
for grafting a new heart into a 
10-dhy old baby, who lived for 
a further 18 days. 


Mother’s joy over transplant baby 


By Trudi McIntosh 

The mother of 12 week old 
Jem Paterson, the world's 
youngest heart-lung transplant 
patient, held his hand for the 
first time yesterday at 
Harefield Hospital, west Lon- 
don. and said: “We never 
hesitated about the operation, 
li was his only chance lo live.” 

Mrs Jane ftuerson. aged 31. 
expressed joy and relief after 
visiting iter son in the 
hospital's intensive care unit. 

With her husband. Mr Ian 
Paterson, who is also aged 31. 
beside her. she said of her son: 
“He has eoi liule. pink hands 
and lips. Now we just want 
him home again." 

Mr and Mrs Patersons, who 
ha\e been married for four 
years, live at Harrow, north- 
west London. 

Since the operation last 
Saturday, they have wailed 
impatiently to see their son 
bin colds prevented them 
from holding his hand until 
\esterday. 



Mrs Jane Paterson: Tears of 
happiness 

They praised the 
"brilliance” of Professor 
Magdi Yacoub. the leading 
transplant surgeon at the hos- 
pital. who carried out the 6'/> 
hour operation soon after 
midnight last Friday. 

The operation was made 
possible after donor organs 
from a five-day-old baby in 


Belgium were made available 
at the weekend. 

“We cannot thank Professor 
Yacoub enough." said Mr 
Paterson, who is a painter and 
decorator “But we also want 
lo thank the parents of the 
baby and hopefully it will give 
our boy a chance.” 

Mrs Paterson said she burst 
into tears of “happiness and 
sadness" when she heard that 
donor organs were available. 

“We were devastated when 
doctors first told us that our 
boy had only weeks or months 
to live, and that he would need 
a heart-lung transplant." she 
said. 

Jem, who was born with a 
single Ventricle in his heart, 
transposed arteries and a 
missing mitral valve, was 
taken taken off a ventilator on 
Tuesday, and- is taking ex- 
pressed, breast milk through a 
lube-

difficulties two weeks after he 
was born-

dog groups will today present 
the British president of the 
EEC Council of Ministers for 
Consumer Affairs witfra list of 
demands they say will lead to 
greater protection for con-,

Representatives from the 12 
member countries will put 
their proposals to Mr Michael 
Howard, who is also Minister 
for Corporate and Consumer 
Affairs at the Department of 
Trade and Industry, at a 
meeting in London. 

The groups, including the 
National Consumer Council 


want a health and safety policy 
to prevent the sale of dan- 
gerous products across fron- 
tiers and closer government 
action to reduce the 30.000 
annual product-related deaths 
throughout Europe. 

Mr Tony Venables, director 
of the federation of consumer 
organizations within the Euro-

Crumbling 
schools 
on video 

By Mark Dowd 

A 12-minnte video tape 
depicting the dilapidated state 
of Bradford's schools is to be 
sent to the Prime Minister. 

Waterlogged school ceil- 
ings, crumbling plasterwork 
and unhygenic Victorian lava- 
tory blocks are featured on the 
tape, compiled by a council- 
funded project at a cost of 
£600. 

The tape's commentary, 
prepared by the council's 
directorate of educational ser- 
vices, says that many children 
are working in conditions 
which would have been con- 
demned as unacceptable by 
their Victorian forefathers and 
which fail to meet Department 
of Education standards. 

Bradford's backlog of 
school bonding repairs is es- 
timated at £18 million and 
believed to be growing by £3 
million a year. 

Mr John Lambert, chair- 
man of Bradford's educational 
services committee, said yes- 
terday: “Our message is that 
the children of the district 
deserve good quality, well- 
designed schools and that 
many, especially in the inner 
dty, do not have them." 


Women test law 
on retirement age 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


Si.x women challenged their 
compulsory retirement by 
British Gas at the age of 60 in a 
test case yesterday which has 
implications for 'the retire- 
ment rights of women in the 
private sector. 

The case, before an indus- 
trial tribunal in. Chelsea, 
south-west London, is being 
brought by the six after a 
European court ruling estab- 
lished that women in the 
public sector should be al- 
lowed to retire at the same age 
as men. 

The Government in- 
troduced amendments to the 
Sex Discrimination Bill, now 
before Parliament, after its 
defeat at the European Court 
in Luxembourg in the case 
brought by Miss Helen Mar- 
shall. a Southampton 
dietician. 

Women in both public and 
private sectors will be able to 


retire at the same age as men 
as a result of the changes, 
although these are unlikely to 
be in force before next 
summer. 

The six women, from 
throughout Britain, are bring- 
ing their case to clarify ihcur 
particular position. It hinges 
on whether or not British Gas 
is a public authority and. 
therefore, whether it is bound 
by the European ruling. 

Mr James Goudie. QC, 
counsel for the women, said: 
“We submit that the articles of 
the equal treatment directive 
apply to public authorities and 
that at the relevant lime the 
British Gas Corporation was a 
public authority." 

Since the women lost their 
jobs, British Gas has changed 
its policy to allow retirement 
by all workers at the age of 65. 
However, the new policy is 
not retroactive. 


Subsidized 
directors 
face drop 
in earnings 

By Jonathan Miller 

New rules to limit 
employees' profits when sub- 
sidized theatre productions 
arc commercialized were 
recommended yesterday by an 
Arts Council inquiry into the 
British theatre. 

The rules would require that 
publicly-funded theatres re- 
ceive at least half the earnings 
when a production is sold. 

The inquiiy also called for a 
large increase in subsidies, 
which it said should come 
from a £ 1 4 million levy on the 
BBC and 1TV. The money 
would be used to establish six 
new national theatres outside 
London and to create a 
development fund to support 
new projects. 

The suggested new rules on 
employees' profits would 
substantially increase theatre 
earnings, but mean a drop in 
income for some directors. Sir 
Kenneth Cork, chairman of 
the inquiiy- and vice-chairman 
of* the Arts Council, said. 

He added that the need for 
new rules was clear before 
allegations were made last 
June that Sir Peter Hall, of the 
National Theatre, and Mr 
Trevor Nunn, of the Royal 
Shakespeare Company, had 
made excessive profits from 
the commercialization of sub- 
sidized productions. Both 
have denied the allegations. 

The inquiry recommended 
that directors of national the- 
atres should be employed on 
fixed-term contracts renew- 
able after stringent review. 
Sabbatical leave should be 
limited to no more than six 
months in any three years. 

Sir Kenneth acknowledged 
the hostility of the broadcast- 
ing industry towards the pro- 
posed levy, but said the 
theatre was on the verge of a 
crisis and that was the only 
major new source of funding 
that the committee had been 
able lo identify. By 
concentrating work for 
theatrical professionals in 
London, the television in- 
dustry has kepi talent out of 
the provinces, he said. “If they 
want to starve the areas 
they've got to pay for it.”

Halifax aims 
for estate 
agency service 

The Halifax Building Soci- 
ety, Britain's largest building 
society, is to set np a national 
estate agency service once the 
BuDding Societies Act be- 
comes tow early next year. 

The Halifax, with £20 bil- 
lion in assets, aims to have 100 
estate agency offices by 1987. 
It will be joining the Nation- 
wide BaQding Society and 
insurance companies in the 
fight to boy estate agencies 
which provide a valuable out- 
let for financial services 
products. 

The Halifax's first ac- 
quisition will be Henry Spen- 
cer and Sons, the estate agent 
which has 20 offices ranging 
from Cambridgeshire to 
Yorkshire. 

The building society will not 
disclose the terms of its agree- 
ment with Henry Spencer 
which will come into effect 
once the Act becomes law. 

The estate agent sells on 
average bonses worth 
£130 million a year and has 
the lion's share of the residen- 
tial market in its area. 

Residential estate agents 
are being bought by banks, 
insurance companies and. lat- 
terly. the bonding societies.

Education 


Delegates back call by 
Freud to rebuild 
education partnership 


, The Liberals' key priorities 
• in education were to get young 
people to stay in education 
and to rebuild the education 
partnership by respecting the 
teachers and paying them as 
they were expected to per- 
form, Mr Clement Freed MP, 
Liberal education spokesman, 
said in opening a debate on 
. partnership in education yes- 
terday at the Liberal Assembly 
in Eastbourne. 

He moved a motion, which 
was carried, condemning the 
Government's stewardship of 
education, its refusal to pro- 
vide adequate funding and its 
failure to carry through the 
reforms that would make 
education more relevant to 
Britain's future needs. 

The motion pledged a 
Liberal government to: secur- 
ing a lasting agreement on the 
structure of the leaching pro- 
fession; expanding provision 
for in-service teacher training: 
setting up a centra! fund to 
promote a broader and more 
comprehensive curriculum; 
encouraging greater involve- 
ment of parents and pupils in 
decision-making; expanding 
education opportunities for 
the under-fives: setting out a 
long-term plan for the expan- 
sion of higher education 
opportunities to meet in- 
creased demands and the 
needs of a technological soci- 
ety: and restoring the Open 
University's funding to a level 
that would enable it to satisfy 
its buoyant demand for places. 

An amendment to delete the 
reference to a central govern- 
ment fund was rejected. 

Mr Freud condemned gov- 
ernment plans for Crown 
schools and vouchers in what- 
ever guise. Such measures 
were like show flats, diverting 
attention from the scaffolding 
and faulty drainage round the 
hack of the building. 

He said: “This Government 
believes in market forces, 
treating education not as a 


principle but as a commodity, 
a consumer good. We reject 
out ofband what I think of as 
the washing machine model of 
education being peddled by 
Mm Thatcher and her Sec- 
reiary of Stale. Labour's solu- 
tion is to purchase the washing 
machine on the never-never, 
changing the colour of the 
rinse.** 

The Libera] concept was 
rooted in partnership in the 


community. 


which should be irrelevant in 
a Liberal society. We are not 
promising instant miracles. 
We arc the only party id 
commit ourselves to a struc- 
ture of support." 

That was not a centrist 
measure. They were trying to 
stop education depending on 
the whim of a transitory 
Secretary of State stealing 
money from local authorities 
and then inviting them to 


issue tike Trustee Savings 
Bank but a common venture, 
run for the common wealth. 

Education should be a right 
for aO not a privilege for those 
who could afford it Miss 
Sheila Conliffe, Union of 
Liberal Students, said when 

she successfully moved an 
emergency motion reaffirming 
the party's opposition to any 
form of student loans. 

Incentives should be given 
to encourage more women, 
mature students, the ethnic 
minorities and those from low 
income families, to enter 
higher education and the idea 
of loans would have the re- 
verse effect. 

Mr Roy O’ Driscoll, a Lon- 
don School of Economics stu- 
dent, said there was nothing 
wrong with loans except that 
they had to be repaid. That 
was all right providing the 
student eventually got well 
paid work, but not so good for 
the 5 per cent who wonld not 
get work of any kind. 

Repayment should be linked 
to an ability to repay and then 
the problem would be solved, 
he suggested. 

“We need a decent, eq- 
uitable. financial structure to 
counter the gross imbalances 
between schools, between re- 
gions, between ethnic groups, 
which have grown under this 
government, not on any rele- 
vant criteria of ability or 
potential but on a criterion 


one-off compete for their own money 


under the education suport 
grant. 

A Liberal central fund 
would be financed with extra 
money and be distributed in 
accordance with the priorities 
determined by the revitalized 
education partnership. It was 
right that the Secretary of 
State should at the margin 
have room for innovation. 

Liberals recognized that 
parents and teachers were the 
natural allies — an allia nce 
that Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
had tried to wreck but which 
might in the end wreck her. 

Mr Dennot Roof. Oxford 
West and Abingdon, said the 
motion did not put enough 
emphasis on tire development 
of individuals. Education was 
not just for jobs, it was for life. 
The motion was rather out of 
date. There was a lot they 
could do now in balanced 
councils and councils under 
Alliance control to put those 
things into effect 

Mr Richard Hoskins, Wan- 
stead and Woodford, said 
education in Britain was in 
crisis. The involvement of 
parents, teachers and staff was 
needed in the running of 
schools. 

Mr Peter Driver, prospec- 
tive parliamentary candidate 
for Eastbouroe, opposing the 
motion, said it had the 
ingredients for tackling 
Britain's near tragic educa- 
tional failures, but there was 
one startling omission on the 



COMMENTARY 





RACE RELATIONS 


Law on discrimination 
‘would be reviewed’ 


Black Britons were cast to 
the bottom of the pile, made 
the scapegoats for all the ills in 
society. Mr Edward 
Ratnaraja. Birmingham, said, 
opening a debate “towards 
racial justice". 

They were denied fun- 
damentals such as a decent 
environment and housing and 
were at a disadvantage in 
education and employment 
he added. 

He successfully proposed a 
motion recognizing the multi- 
cultural and multi-racial na- 
ture of British society and the 
evidence of widespread dis- 
crimination and disadvantage 
suffered by ethnic minorities. 

The motion also resolved 
that in government the Liberal 
Party would review the 1976 
Race Relations Act with a 
view to its replacement by 
effective sanctions against 
unlawful discrimination, 
realistic remedies for those 
discriminated against and 
wider powers of investigation 
and enforcement. 

Mr Keith Whitmore, 
prospective parliamentary 
candidate for Manchester. 
Gorton, said it was essential 
the party committed itself to 
scrapping the 1981 British 
Nationality Act 

Mrs Zerbaaoo Gifford. Har- 
row East, said racism was a 
squalid reality for millions in 
Britain. Ethnic communities 


did not regard racial equality 
in terms of political fashion 
but in terms of pressing needs. 

Mr Rqj Vaghadia. South 
Leicestershire, said they re- 
jected the positive discrimina- 
tion of setting up black 
sections as practised within 
the Labour Party. All people, 
whatever race or colour, were 
equal. 

Mr Michael Meadowcroft 
MP for Leeds West. Liberal 
spokesman on community 
relations, said the introduc- 
tion of vias was wrong, it 
should never have happened 
and must go. 

• The Government's recently 
announced introduction of 
visa requirements for tem- 
porary visitors from Pakistan 
and certain Commonwealth 
countries was denounced as 
“racist in principle and ar- 
bitrary in practice" in an 
emergency motion carried by 
the assembly. 

In the motion the assembly 
committed Liberals in govern- 
ment to the abolition of the 
requirement and reaffirmed 
the party's determination to 
end those aspects of immigra- 
tion law and practice that were 
racist 

Mr Alan SherweU, par- 
liamentary candidate for 
Aylesbury, in moving it. said 
the new regulations would 
only cause alienation and do 
no good for community or 
international relations. 


Cheeis and a standing ova- 
tion greeted the announce- 
ment by Mr Cyril South, MP 
for Rochdale, that he- had. 
changed his mind and would 


definitely be standing again at Our task is to go forward to 


the next general election. 

In an address to the assem- 
bly he said: “The next election 


cannot be far away. Many of general election, but I believe 
us are seriously disturbed at it is so vital that socialism is

By Philip Webster Chief 

Political Correspondent 

The villains of the piece 
were missing when Liberal 
MPs filed into Mr David 
Steel's Room 217 at the 
Queen's Hotel in Eastbourne 
late on Tuesday to survey the 
disaster of the defence debate. 

The three MPS who voted 
against their leader, Mr Si- 
mon Hughes. Mr Michael 
Meadowcroft and Mr Archie 
Kirkwood, were delayed. The 
latter two were playing in the 
hand at the traditional con- 
ference revue; Mr Hughes was 
at a fringe meeting. 

But their absence did not 
lessen the fury directed 
particularly at Mr Hughes 
and Mr Meadowcroft. who 
made influential speeches 


was putting a brave face on his 
defert, that his life had not 
been made easier but that he 
was determined to go forward 
and work out an agreed de- 
fence policy for the Alliance. 

He made a restrained attack 
on the naivety of his absent 
colleagues for failing to appre- 
ciate tbe political damage of 
their actions and the way that 
they were to be presented in 
yesterday's newspapers. 

But as MPs and the handful 
of Liberal peers present each 
made their contributions the 
volume of criticism rose. The 
unobtrusive Mrs Elizabeth 
Shields, the party's newest 
MP, was the first to speak,, 
surprising her colleagues with 
the passion of her attack. Her 
victory in the Ryedale by- 
election. she said, had been 


aga in s t the leadership in the. based on Alliance unity and 
debate, in what was to become the actions of Mr Hoghes and 


one of the most emotional, 
sorrowful and angry meetings 
that the Parliamentary 
Liberal Party has ever held. 
Mr Steel had been let down. 

A remarkably composed Mr 
Steel began proceedings by 
telling his colleagues that he 


Mr Meadowcroft had been 
’ totally against that spirit. 

Mr David Alton, the Liberal 
Chief Whip ami is charge of 
discipline, accused the three 
rebels of disloyalty in publish- 
ing their dissenting defence 
paper. Across the Divide, last 


week without proper consulta- 
tion with Mr Jim Wallace, the 
defence spokesman, a criti- 
cism echoed by Mr Wallace 
who said he felt betrayed. 

Mr Alton said that the 
party's rales would have to be 
changed to subject spokesmen 
to collective responsibDity. 

Mr Malcolm Bruce, who 
spoke in the debate for the 
leadership tine, suggested that 
Mr Hughes should be disci- 
plined; Mr Alex Carlile said 
that before the Alliance be- 
came serious contenders for 
government some of bis col- 
leagues would have to grow up. 

But tbe most impassioned 
remarks came from two of Mr 
Steel's oldest and closest 
friends. Lord Mackie of 
Benshie, die former Scottish 
Liberal Party chairman who 
gave Mr Steel bis first job asa 
researcher in the Scottish 
party, and who has since 
become a father-figure to him, 
dearly took it personally. 

“David has been treated 
despicably," he said. Mr Steel 
would have every justification 
in throwing in the towel and 
resigning. That prompted an 


immediate Intervention from 
Mr Steri to say tint he had no 
intention of doing so. 

Sir Russell Johnston, MP 
lor Inverness, said that in 22 
years as a Liberal MP be had 
never known an act of greater 
disloyalty: “David has pulled 
tbe Liberal^ Party up from 
nothing by his own endeavours 
and this is what they have 
done to him." The rebels, he 
said, had let down David Steel, 
the liberal Party and die 
Alliance. 

Another veteran. Mr Ste- 
phen Ross, said that trying to 
kill the European initiative at 
birth had shown a spectacular 
lack of imagination. 

By now Mr Hughes had 
arrived. He voiced regret that 
bis colleagues felt so hurt what 
what had happened but de- 
fended his right to sprat out 
When he said that be agreed 
that more collective 
responsibility should be in- 
troduced. Mr Ross remarked: 
"It is a bit late now. Simon." 
>( Mr Meadowcroft and Mr 
Kirkwood arrived hotfoot from 
playing clarinet and guitar at 


the revue. The. temperature of the same again. 


the debate had by then low- 
ered, but the attacks 
continued. 

For Mr Kirkwood, a protege 
of Mr Steel, it had been a 
painful decision and his dis- 
tress was obvious to his col- 
leagues. He did not speak. Mr 
Meadowcroft blamed the tim- 
ing of the joint commission

made to tbe party which had 
not been kept He earned some j 
jeers when he said that he had 
tried to “manage" the party, i

tbe benefit of the latecomers" 
underlined die difficulties into 
which he had been placed; the 
issue would now dominate the 
rest of the conference and his 
speech on Friday. He had 
wanted to concentrate on other 
matters. An opportunity bad 
been lost. A defence agreement 
wonld be thrashed, ort but a 
political problem had been 
created. 

After two mi happy horns 
they left. The Parlia m en t ary 
Liberal Party, soon to be run 
by the disciplines of collective 
responsibility, wodd never be 


It is these differences of 
attitode which are now appear- 
ing in the conflicts over policy. 
After Chernobyl there is anxi- 
ety abort nuclear power in 
both parties, brt Socfal Demo- 
crats are more easily swayed 
by the economic difficulties of 
phasing ft ort. A disarmament 
agreement that would make it 
unnecessary for Britain to 
keep a midear deterrent would 
be eagerly welcomed by both 
parties, but Liberals are more 
readily persuaded that it is 
likely to be achieved. 

In so far as this is just a 
difference of emphasis it is 
tolerable, even constructive. 
No vigorous party can be 
monolithic in Its thinking The 
threat for the Alliance is of a 
point being reached where 
there was a conflict between 
political mid policy logic. 

Political lojpc requires not 
only the development of a joint 
programme, bat also the 
steady convergence of the two 
parties - though not a merger 
this side of the election. 

Brt parties, especially a 
party with strdb deep wells of 
emotion as tbe liberals, wifi

political caknfations if the

policy togs them too far apart 

What we shall now see over

whether the thinking of Social

know is their own political 
interest.

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 
The European Community 
must Ughicn its external fron-

Mr Hurd contrasted the

need to prevent terrorists 
getting inside the EEC 
"If we are to minimise the 
barriers which apply at our 
internal frontiers we must first

Privatized 
jails ‘will 
save cash’ 

By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

Prisons could be built and 
run by private companies, 
saving taxpayers' money. Sir 
Edward Gardner, QG chair- 
man of the Parliamentary 

Select Committee on Home 
Affairs, said yesterday. 

Sir Edward told the annual 
conference of the Howard 
League for Penal Reform: 
"The rise in crimes of vi- 
olence, the growth of terror- 
ism and the gruesome threat 
of a prodigious increase in 
drug-trafficking, leaves us 
with no choice but to build 
new prisons.” 

The Government’s building 
programme for 16 prisons. 14 
of which were planned to open 
by 1 W, was now well under 
way. he said. The cost to the 
taxpayer was bound to be 
heavy, but he suggested the 
burden might be lightened by 
having new prisons built and 
administered by private 
companies. 

Mr Alex Cariile QC, Liberal 
spokesman on home affairs 
and the law. told the con- 
ference there should be a 
permanent staff college for 
magistrates and judges. 

"In particular, new judges 
should undergo training 
which would provide a far 
greater understanding of the 
consequences of imprison- 
ment. and of the interests of 
society in using it only as the 
sentence of last resort.”

mg the Anglo-German Associ- 
ation. added: “If controls at 
internal borders are to be 
reduced, then consideration 
must also be given to tighten- 
ing controls at common ex- 
ternal borders, so that we may 
be more confident that those 
inside the Community have a 
right to be there." 

Frontier controls were a 
crucial element in the mea- 
sures which EEC countries 
had to lake to curb the threats 
posed by terrorism, drug traf- 
ficking and organized crime. 

"Simply to relax frontier 
controls, without doing more 
elsewhere, would add to those 
threats.. That would not ac- 
cord with the interests of the 
Community as a whole, of any 
member slate, or of our people 
who would have to face the 
consequence of such 
negligence.” 

He disclosed that intelli- 
gence about the activities of 
terrorist . groups was increas- 
ingly hard to come by. 

But he said ihat 'while 
Britain retained the presi- 
dency of the EEC be would 
concentrate on pressing “for 
the closest sharing of informa- 
tion, the pooling of analysis, 
skills, techniques and re- 
sources so that all the informa- 
tion about their activities 
which can be obtained is 
available to us”.

Police officers ‘wrestled in bear hug’ on pitch 


A police constable de- 
scribed at Cardiff Crown 
Court yesterday how he grap- 

S led with another officer as 
sts flew during a needle 
rugby match. Police Constable 
Keith Jones, aged 40, said he 
and Richard Johnson rolled 
over and over in a bear-hug 
struggle. 


Johnson, aged 31, had won 
the ball in a line-out and was 
challenged by PC Jones in the 
game between Newport and 
Cardiff police. 

The prosecution alleges PC 
Jones, 6ft 2 in, twice punched 
his opponent and gouged his 
eye. Johnson, it is said, retali- 
ated and bit into his Newport 


opponent’s ear lobe, then 
ripped it off. 

Johnson told the court: “1 
was in discomfort caused by 
having my eye-ball pushed 
back into the socket with 
considerable force. I' was 
dazed after being punched 
twice.” 

The referee abandoned the 


game with five minutes to go. 
Johnson was taken back to the 
dressing room where team- 
mates saw his face was red and 
his eye was puffy. 

Johnson, of Hurford Street. 
Pontypridd. Mid Glamorgan, 
denies wounding with intent 
to cause grievous bodily 
harm. The case continues. 


Chemists 
urged to 
protect 
their role 

By a Staff Reporter 

Pharmacists were yesterday 
warned to treat with caution a 
proposal that would change 
the law and make it un- 
necessary for them to be 
present when medicines are 
supplied. 

Dr Hopkin Maddock, past 
president, told the annual 
conference of the Phar- 
maceutical Society of Great 
Britain that pharmacists 
should not destroy their 
unique relationship with 
patients. 

He was reacting to recom- 
mendations in the recent re- 
port of the Nuffield Found- 
ation inquiry into pharmacy, 
which proposed to alter the 
Medicines Acl 

"If you don’t have a care 
you will be taking the first step 
down a slippery slope that will 
eventually sec the demise of 
our noble profession, whose 
principal function is the 
protection of the public” he 
said. 

Dr Maddock told an audi- 
ence of 1.000 pharmacists in 
Jersey that the public had a 
unique relationship with the 
pharmacist in that people 
knew that he or she was the 
only member of the health 
care team who could be found, 
in a particular place, at any 
time during ihe working day. 
"Don’t destroy this rel- 
ationship.” he pleaded. 


Hope for 
baby of 
dead wife 

Doctors keeping a clinically | 
dead woman alive so they can 
save her unborn baby said 
yesterday that the child had a 
good chance of survival. 

They hope to deliver the 
baby in four to six weeks by 
Caesarean section, even 
though the mother may be 
brain-dead. 

The married woman aged 
24, who is from Cleveland, 
suffered a severe brain 
haemorrhage at home and was 
admitted to Middlesbrough 
General Hospital. 

Doctors were unable to save 
her, but she is being kept 
breathing on a life support 
machine 

Dr John Drury, a senior 
administrator at the Middles- 
brough hospital, said: “She is 
pregnant and now on a life 
support machine. The foetus 
is 24 weeks old and as far as 
we can tell, in good shape. 

“A team of consultants, 
including an obstetrician and 
neuro-suigeon, and an inten- 
sive care consultant, are 
watching very closely to de- 
cide the best moment to 
deliver the foetus by Caesar- 
ean section. “After the foetus 
reaches 28-30 weeks it should 
have a good chance of sur- 
vival “The mother’s con- 
dition is stable. . It’s possible 
that she is brain dead but we 
have not yet done full tests as 
there is no intention of switch- 
ing off her life support 
system”

Crisis for Unifil in southern Lebanon 

Shia villages abandoned after threats to French 


From Robert Fisk, Tibnin, sontben. Lebanon 

The embattled United Na- 
tions force in southern Leba- 
non has contracted its area of 
operations and permanently 
abandoned control of several 
bhia Muslim villages, as it 
attempts to avoid further at- 
tacks on soldiers of its French 
contingent. 

But many officers in the UN 
j\ tc n™ p orce. in Lebanon 
(Unifil) are said to favour a 
total French withdrawal from 
southern Lebanon, blaming 
the French themselves for 
much of the violence visited 
upon them. 

French troops were still 
maintaining their battalion 
headquarters at Marrakeh yes- 
terday as units from the 
Nepalese and Ghanaian batt- 
alions prepared to take over 
their compound. But the 
French post at the neighbour- 
ing village of Teir Dibba has 
not been handed over to any 
other contingent. 

Children were yesterday 
tearing away the barbed wire 
from the checkpoint that once 
marked the north-western cor- 
ner of the UN zone in 
Lebanon, while sandbagged 
positions to the south had 
been left unguarded, giving 
local militiamen fine right or 
access to the UN area. 

The sense of abandonment 
— the discarded sandbags, the 
metal chicanes thrown to one 
side of the road, the empty 
bunkers with their regimental 
badges still emblazoned on the 
side — is (tauntingly familiar. 

Similar scenes preceded the 
departure of the multinational 
force from Beirut in late 1983 
and early 1984. when their 
contingents also withdrew 
from vulnerable positions 
along their perimeter. 

Across the entire UN zone, 
there is a noticeable and 


sudden transfer of local loy- 
alty from the Shia Muslim 
Amal militia, which favours a 
UN presence, to the more 
extreme and pro-Iran Hez- 
bollah (Party of God) move- 
ment, whose members have 
been accused of the attacks on 

the French. 

Even here in Tibnin, where 
the Irish UN contingent has 
experienced few problems 
with local militiamen, Amal 
commanders are now pri- 
vately admitting to UN sol- 
diers that they are now 
Hezbollah members. 

On the walls of the little 
hilltop village, Hezbollah 
posters have appeared, the 
Arabic word Allah — with the 
second T surmounted by a 
drawing of a rifle — taking the 
place of Antal's fa miliar logo. 

At a medal parade Ax' 
soldiers of the UN Norwegian 
maintenance company at- 
tached to the Irish contingent 
at Tibnin yesterday, Major- 
General Gustav Hagglund, the 
Force commander, made sev- 
eral references to the crisis 
through which the inter- 
national force is now passing. 

He regarded Tuesday 
night's UN Security Council 
vote, calling for a total Israeli 
withdrawal and the comple- 
tion of UnifiPs mandate down 
to the IsraeU-Lebanese border, 
as an “encouraging sign” but 
regretted the UN's failure to 
fulfil its mandate until now 
“even after eight long years of 
work and sacrifice". 

Many UN officers say pri- 
vately that French troops have 
only themselves to blame for 
the recent attacks upon them. 

“The French brought much 
of this on themselves," one 
UN officer said. “They are 
arrogant, they dabble in Mid- 
dle East politics by selling 




An Israeli military convoy 


arms to Iraq, and then they go 
crying for help to the Security 
Council when they get hit The 
lesson is that no peacekeeping 
force in Lebanon should in- 
clude a contingent which is 
selling arms to one side in an 
Arab war or which has a 
colonial history in the area. 
And no paratroop units 
should be used. They are too 
rough.” 

The 1.050-sirong French 
contingent is drawn from a 
parachute regiment. 

This sentiment appears to 
be widely shared in UN units.

the southern Lebanon border zone yesterday, in contravention of the UN Security 
1 vote calling for Israel's total withdrawal from Lebanon. 


Individual contingents in 
the UN are. nevertheless, 
anxious to distance them- 
selves from the French, prom- 
inently displaying their coun- 
try's national colours on their 
vehicles. 

The Irish contingent is still 
coming under regular gunfire 
at Beit Yahoun. where Leba- 
nese guerrillas, who have 
warned the Irish that the road 
they are using is mined, 
sometimes employ the nearest 
UN bunker as cover for their 
fire against the Israeli-paid 
“South Lebanon Army.” 


Near Abbasiyeh yesterday, a 
Nepalese soldier was slightly 
wounded in the face by a 10- 
year-old boy who — perhaps 
mistaking him for a member 
of the French contingent 
which had just left his position 
— shot him in the nose 
fn southern Lebanon as a 
whole — and despite reports of 
a brief Israeli raid through the 
UN's Norwegian battalion in 
the eastern sector — there 
appears to be little fear that 
the Israeli troops that massed 
along the frontier three days 
ago will enter Lebanon.

From lan Murray 
Jerusalem 

Mr Shimon Feres yesterday 
said that be hoped the UN 
Security Council would soon 
come to terms with reality 
following its vote instructing 
Israel to end its support for the 
“Sooth Lebanon Army” mi- 
litia and to withdraw com- 
pletely from the area, allowing 
Unifil troops to deploy along 
the border. 

Speaking in Jerusalem, the 
Israeli Prime Minister said 
his country would leave south 


Lebanon immediately if fences 
capable of securing the border 
were in place. 

Unifil was not able to do 
that, he said, and so Israel 
would stay on supporting the 
SLA. 

Mr Yitzhak Shamir, the 
Israeli Foreign Minister, who 
was in New York for the vote, 
said that the idea of allowing 
UN troops to take over ignored 
the population in the “security 
zone” in south Lebanon as 
well as the security of settle- 
ments in northern Israel. 


He said Israel would con- 
tinue to fulfil its obligations 
although it was not planning 
any new invasion of Lebanon. 

Israel had been resigned 
from the outset to the resut of 
the United Nations vote, and 
was determined to ignore it. 

It had always known that 
unless it supported (he SLA 
the militia would find it diffi- 
cult to stand up to 
else that was going on, 
Syrian, I ranian and who 
knows who else's backing”. 


New group 
claims two 
kidnaps 

Beirut — Yet another un- 
known group. Revolutionary 
Justice, stepped into the 
gloomy world of Lebanese 
kidnap claims yesterday with 
photographs of Mr Joseph 
Cicippio. the American fi- 
nance officer at the American 
University abducted 13 days 
ago. and of a man they claim is 
a French citizen who dis- 
appeared in East Beirut early 
this year (Robert Fisk writes). 

The organization claimed 
both men were spies and that 
they face trial 

Mr Cicippio's Lebanese 
wife said the photograph was 
of her husband. 

The kidnappers said the 
Frenchman is M Marcel 
Coudiy. No such name exists 
in the files of the Lebanese 
Interior Ministry, which is- 
sues residence permits, but the 
French Foreign Ministry in 
Paris said a French citizen 
named Maned Khodari dis- 
appeared last February. 


Hamburg 
police 
stop arms 
deals 

From John England 
Bonn 

Police in Hamburg have 
uncovered two big rings of 
brokers engaged m illegal 
arms dealings which were 
arranging shipments of weap- 
ons to Iraq and Iran worth 
nearly £950 million, it was 
disclosed yesterday. 

The rings, which were un- 
connected, had arranged deals 
for the delivery of aircraft, 
tanks, weapons and equip- 
ment, including American Co- 
bra combat helicopters, 
M 113 and M 48 tanks, en- 
gines for Soviet MiG 23 
fighter bombers, artillery gun 
barrels and huge quantities of 
anti-tank bazookas, sub-ma- 
chine guns and ammunition of 
various calibres, a police 
spokesman said. 

The deals bad not taken 
place, however, because of 
police intervention and the 
failure of one group to obtain 
end-user certificates required 
for sales of war weapons. 

Police had seized many 
documents in searches of the 
homes and offices of five 
suspects, mostly businessmen. 
The searches followed a tip-off 
that Cobra helicopters, worth 
about £100 million, were to be 
shipped from the makers via a 
Hamburg group to an un- 
known buyer in the Gulf war 
area. 

The businessmen, all be- 
longing to the first ring, had 
allegedly arranged arms deals 
with a sales volume of about 
DM900 million (£300 mil- 
lion) using their legal commer- 
cial channels. 

Police began investigating 
the second ring in ApriL, and 
six out of nine suspects had 
been detained, the spokesman 
said. All face possible charges 
under West Germany's war 
weapons control law, which 
bans arms exports to “tension 
areas” without government 
approval. 

The second ring had plan- 
ned a DM 1,600 million ship- 
ment of Cobra helicopters, 
M 48 tanks. Sidewinder mis- 
siles, howitzers, flame-throw- 
ers and tank engines from 
Bri tain, Belgium and Italy to 
Iran via Switzerland, but was 
hindered by a lack of end-user 
certificates. 

The suspects are still being 
questioned by the Hamburg 
public prosecutor's office. 


Escapers 
swim canal 
to West 

From John Engl a n d 
Bonn 

Three East Germans es- 
caped to West Berlin early 
yesterday by swimming the 
Tcltow canal in the south of 
the city, after making their 
way unharmed through bar- 
riers on the eastern bank. 

Police said East German 
border guards had fired no 
shots at the men - two aged 
about 20. the other aged 40 - 
who were from the Potsdam 
district. 

The ibrec were taken to 
hospital suffering from expo- 
sure, but were later handed 
over to the US military 
authorities, in whose sector 
they had landed. 

A total of 10 East Germans 
have now escaped to the West 
by swimming waterways at 
nighi in the last five weeks. 

In Bonn, however, the West 
German Government yes- 
terday was still awaiting a full 
report from the Czechoslovak 
Government on the killing by 
Czechoslovak border guards 
last Thursday ofa retired West 
German army officer, Herr 
Johann Dick, on West Ger- 
man soil. 

• Envov summoned: West 
Germany protested to 
Czechoslovakia for the second 
time in five days yesterday 
over the shooting o[ Hen- 
Dick. the Foreign Ministry 
mi id (Reuter reports). Dr 
Dusan Sparil. the Czecho- 
slovak Ambassador, was sum- 
moned and told Bonn wanted 
prompt clarification or the 
circumstances of the killing. 


French anti-drug campaign 


Addicts face enforced cure 


From Duma Geddes 

Plans 

France is to spend an addi- 
tional £25 million in an all-out 
campaign against drugs which 
will force drug addicts to 
undergo a cure or face impris- 
onment. 

Drug traffickers willing to 
turn police informer will have 
their sentences reduced and 
the French Government will 
double its drug prevention 
budgeL 

, The Justice Minister, M 
Albert Chalandon. said the 
changes constituted a com- 
plete alteration of government 
philosophy on drug users, who 
would now be considered 
criminals, not sick people. 

Officials put the number of 
drug addicts in France ax 
120,000, with a further 
800,000 occasional users. 
More than a quarter are aged 
under 20. 


Nearly 30,000 drug-related 
arrests were made last year. 25 
per cent more than in the pre- 
vious year. M Chalandon said 
drug addiction was directly 
related to the rise in crime and 
the spread of Aids. 

The maximum penalty for 
drug users is to be increased 
from one to two years and 
they will be obliged to undergo 
a cure. If they do not undergo 
a cure they will be imprisoned 
and forced to do so there. At 
present an addict who is not a 
drug trafficker is not usually 
prosecuted. 

The prosecution will no 
longer have to prove personal 
use of drugs by the suspected 
addict. Possession of drugs 
will constitute personal use. 

At present there are 600 
hospital beds for treatment of 
addicts, with a further 4.000 
places on offer in private drug 
detoxification centres. The 
Government will create a 


further 4.600 places during the 
next few monihs, where ad- 
dicts may go voluntarily for 
treatment. 

France has no private pris- 
ons at present, though the 
Government is considering 
the creation of private prisons 
for ordinary criminals to help 
take the pressure off the 
country's overcrowded public 
establishments. 

Drug traffickers will no 
longer be able to serve several 
sentences concurrently and 
the period during which a 
trafficker may be prosecuted 
after committing a drug-re- 
lated crime is to be extended 
from three to 10 years. 

!f convicted in his absence a 
trafficker may be liable to 
serve the sentence for up to 20 
years instead of the present 10 
years. 

Pan of the new campaign 
will be aimed specifically at 
schoolchildren. 


Three Iranians 
charged after 
explosives find 

Paris — Three Iranians were 
charged yesterday with po- 
ssessing explosives after the 
discovery on Monday of 33 lb 
of explosives near Chalons- 
sur-Mame (Diana Geddes 
writes). 

They are named as Seyyed 
Kalibi, aged 50; Azita Mon- 
achipour, aged 29: and Joseph 
Monapchipour, 35. 

Five French people were 
also arrested as alleged friends 
of Frederic Oriacb, a leader of 
the group Action Dinette.

The description of the re-

assessment of the accident 
published this week by sci- 
entists from the Lawrence 
Livermore National Labor- 
atory in California, one of the 
three main US nndear re- 
search centres. 

They concluded that the 
Chernobyl explosion released 
more long-term radiation than 
all the bombs, weapons tests 
and l eaks from civil installa- 
tions so far. 

They also predicted th at, if

g«tri the Soviet Union intends

nuclear power in 10 years. 

He asserted that “mankin d 
has moved too far into the

no absolute guarantee of 
safety, international co-opera- 
tion is essential in devising a

was ready to sign the proposed

ated a critical situation that 
was difficult to control with

race. „ 

Endorsing the measures For

Peter Walker, the Secretary of 
State for Energy, reflected the 
views of other nndear coun- 
tries who braid and export nu- 
clear power systems. 

He said a third of the 
Earopean Community's elec- 
tricity was generated by 
nod ear power. The Soviet 
Union, the United States and 
other countries depended npon 
nndear power as a major 
contributor to energy supplies. 
Gist aside that option and the 
pressures upon other energy 
sources would be such as to 
cause considerable economic

He said the question was 
whether the world could use 
the benefits of unclear power 
with confidence as to its safety. 

The Chernobyl accident 
illustrated that any major 
accident would be inter- 
national hi its impact 

He said prospects for 
achieving international agree-

maimer in which the Soviet 
Union provided the fads about 
the disaster. 


Soweto 

official 

attacked 

From Ray Remedy 
Johannesburg 

The home of the director of 
housing for Soweto, the Mack 
gheuo outside Johannesburg, 
was extensively damaged yes- 
terday by a fimpet mine. 

Mrs Del Kavan was unhurt, 
but the attack in a well-to-do 
white suburb of Johannesburg 
was immediately linked to her 
tough attitude towards rent 
defaulters in the lownsbip. 

She has been blamed in 
some black circles for the 
deaths of at least 24 people in 
Soweto's White City district 
last month, when security 
forces opened fire on residents 
resisting eviction. 

Shortly after the shootings 
Mrs Kevan resigned her 
membership of the white 
liberal opposition Progressive 
Federal Party. 

The attack was the first in a 
white suburb in two years of 
black revolt 

• WASHINGTON: George- 
town University in Wash- 
ington, a leading Jesuit 
university, has announced 
(hat it is to sell all its holdings 
in companies doing business 
in South Africa (Michael 
Binyon writes). 

Its board said the action 
would involve about a sixth of 
its investments, with a total 
market value of $28.6 million 
(£19.5 million!. 

The decision is part of a 
move by universities, in re- 
sponse to strong student pres- 
sure, to use their financial 
leverage to try to force an end 
to apartheid. 


Black miners pay last 
tribute to their dead 

From Michael Hornsby, Embafenhle, Transvaal 


About 5,000 black miners 
gathered in a dusty football 
stadium here yesterday to pay 
tribute to 177 comrades who 
died in the Kinross gold mine 
fire last week, and to vent their 
anger against the mining com- 
panies they hold responsible. 

A large weft-armed police 
contingent, supported by a 
score or more of armoured 
vehicles, kept a watch on the 
proceedings from outside the 
stadium but did not intervene, 
though the meeting was cer- 
tainly illegal under the state of 
emergency. 

The gathering was ad- 
dressed by Mrs Winnie 
Mandela, wife of the jailed 
African National Congress 
leader, Mr Nelson Mandela. It 
was her most outspoken pub- 
lic appearance since the emer- 
gency was declared on June 
12 . 

Dressed in the green, gold 
and black colours of the 


outlawed ANC Mrs Mandela 
told the miners: “You are the 
ones who dig the wealth of this 
land. You hold the golden key 
for our liberation. The mo- 
ment you stop digging their 
gold, the moment you stop 
digging diamonds for them, is 
the moment you will be free ” 

The memorial meeting was 
organized by the National 
Union of Mineworkeis. whose 
General Secretary. Mr Cyril 
Ramaphosa, contrasted it 
with a service at Kinross last 
Monday organized, as he put 
it. “by the bloodsuckers who 
murdered our comrades". 

Mr Ramaphosa, whose 
union claims as members 
about a third of the more than 
600.000 blacks employed in 
the mining industry, said the 
NUM was catling on blacks at 
mines throughout the country 
to stay away from work on 
October 1 in memory of their 
dead colleagues.

disciplinary proceedings ag- 
ainst wo unnamed lawyers 
who have admitted falsify ing 
evidence and suborning wit-

Admiral fuels 
protest over 
fleet’s visit 

Sydney - An Australian 
Admiral dismayed the Gov- 
ernment yesterday by saying 
that a fleet including British 
and United States ships will 
“inevitably" be carrying nuc- 
lear weapons when it sails into 
Sydney Harbour on Sunday 
(Stephen Taylor writes). 

The statement was immedi- 
ately seized upon by anti- 
nuclear groups as evidence of 
danger when 40 warships 
gather here to celebrate the 
75lh anniversary of the Royal 
Australian Navy. A big 
demonstration is planned for 
the fleet's arrivaL 
Rear-Admiral David Mar- 
tin, who is in charge of the 
celebrations, said that “in- 
evitably, some of these ships 
will be carrying nuclear 
weapons". 

He later described his state- 
ment as “a gaffe" and said he 
had meant to say it was not 
inevitable that they would be 
carrying the weapons.

paganda Filled with “error and 
prejudice” about the Soviet 
Union and its policies on arms 
conlroL 

Addressing a press con- 
ference called to discuss the 
speech, Mr Yuli Voronstov 
the First Deputy Foreign Min- 
ister, also accused President 
Reagan of deliberately breach- 
ing the confidentiality of re- 
cent private correspondence 
with Mr Mikhail Gorbachov 
and of presenting delegates 


by Mr Gorbachov had prej- 
udiced the chance of Mr 
DanilofT receiving a' fair trial 
in the Soviet Union. 

“If the. case is brought 1 to 
court, the trial will be fair and 
all circumstances of the Dani- 
loff case will be thoroughly 
examined," the official said in 
remarks which reflected 
Kremlin irritation at the

With a distorted account of said. “But we are against

The bitterness of the attack, 
which carried all the hall-

drafted in advance of the con-

more optimistic noises about 
possible arms control agree-

Washington last week. 

Mr Vorontsov faced hostile

Mr Vorontsov told more 
than 400 newsmen at the Fo- 
reign Ministry press centre 
that President Reagan had 
known in advance. From the 
private letter rent to him by 
Mr Gorbachov, that the main 
US arms control proposals 
which he outlined to the UN 
would be .rejected by the So- 
viet side. 


He cited particularly the 
President's call for a seven- 
year ban on deployment of the 
Strategic Defence Initiative, in 
contrast to the Kremlin's de- 
mand for a 1 5 to 2Q-year com- 
mitment by both sides to the 
1972 anti-baiiislic missile 
treaty, with all Star Wars work 
limited to the laboratory. 

“Mr Reagan's speech and 
analysis of the American po- 
sition again turned in one's 
mind the idea that has aleady i 
been conveyed to him by ibe 
Soviet side,” Mr Vorontsov 
said. “Is the American leader- 
ship really willing to look for 
agreements that will lead to 
the termination of the arms 
race?" 

“We informed the President 
on several occasions of our 
conviction that the issue of 
ending nuclear tests can be re- 
solved," Mr Vorontsov said. 
“Verification has long since 
stopped being an obstacle. 

This question should be re- 
solved drastically, by way of 
banning all nuclear explo- 
sions. Regulating their yield 
and number means the conti- 
nuation of testing.”

13 die in 
night raid 
on Togo 
barracks 

Lome (Reuter) - About 50 
dissidents, who attacked the 
barracks home of General 
Gnassingbe Eyadema. the 
President ofTogo. on Tuesday 
night, were driven off by 
security forces, military 
sources said yesterday. 

Six civilians ana seven 
attackers died in the ensuing 
fighting. 

Military sources said that 
the group infiltrated from 
Ghana and surrounded the 
barracks in an attempt to kill 
or capture the general, aged 
50. who has ruled the West 
African country for 19 years. 

General Eyadema yesterday 
showed foreign diplomats 19 
captured attackers and an 
assortment of Soviet-made 
weapons, including rocket 
launchers, bazookas and auto- 
matic rifles. 

Other targets of the all-night 
attack were the headquarters 
of the ruling Rally of the 
Togolese People (RPT) and 
the national radio. 

It appeared to have been the 
most serious challenge yet to 
General Eyadema's iron rule. 
Gunfire was heard until mid- 
morning as security forces 
tracked down remnants of the 
invading force. 

Markets and shops stayed 
shut and troops set up road 
blocks and searched vehicles. 
The Ghanaian border, a short 
distance from Lome, was 
dosed until further notice. | 


Death of 
missionary 
in Kenya 
CID office 

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Ad American missionary,, 
collapsed and died in the CID 
headquarters here yesterday 
after being arrested over 
allegations that the Associated 
Christian Churches of East 
.Africa, an .American- backed 
missionary organization, had 
imported radio equipment and 
guns without permission from 
the Kenyan authorities. 

Mr Lyle Marvin Hudson 
and another American, Mr 
Richard Hamilton, were ar- 
rested at Kitale, in western 
Kenya, last Friday and were 
held in a suburban police 
station in Nairobi over the 
weekend. They were released 
after undertaking to report 
daily to the CID. 

A Kenyan official said Mr 
Hudson died in the CID wait- 
ing room, apparently from a 
heart condition. President Moi 
attacked the church on Tues- 
day for trying to import radios 
and arms. 

The Associated Christian 
Churches of East Africa has 
been operating in sparsely 
populated areas of north-west 
Kenya where there are no tele- 
phones. 

The incident is likely to 
cause severe embarrassment 
to the Kenyan authorities, who 
have in the past been accused 
of torturing people under in- 
vestigation for crimes. 


Tough tactics to halt 
attacks at airports 


From John Best, Ottawa 


Israel and Canada have put 
forward blueprints for com- 
batting terrorism at airports 
around the world in response 
to tire recent wave of hijack- 
ings, bombings and other 
terrorist outrages. 

Israel's package of mea- 
sures, unveiled at the opening 
session of the International 
Civil Aviation Organization’s 
(ICAO) 26th general assembly 
in Montreal, is especially 
tough and wide-ranging. 

Among other things, it calls 
for a 20-year minimum prison 
term for any terrorist act even 
where there is no loss of lire. 
Where a life is taken, a 
mandatory life sentence is to 
be imposed. 

“Sometimes offenders are 
not punished at all," a spokes- 
man for the Israeli delegation, 
Mr Jitzchak Alster, told 
reporters. 

The Israeli 15 -point pro- 
gramme would give states 
“universal jurisdiction to 
prosecute any terrorist they 
catch, even if the crime in 
question was committed out- 
side their territories. 

It also includes a provision 
making it mandatory for 
slates to extradite suspected 
terrorists, whether or not an 

extradition treaty exists. 

Other Proposals.'" ’***£ 


ing a search for doable bot- 
toms in suitcases”. 

The Israelis want existing 
international conventions am- 
ended to add terrorist attacks 
on airports, airline offices, 
passenger terminals and other 
aviation facilities to the list of 
international crimes. 

The Canadian proposal 
would make it an inter- 
national crime to commit an 
act of violence at an inter- 
national airoort that interferes 
with the safety of air travel 
More particularly the pro- 
posal would make ita crime to 
place bombs or other explo- 
sives in airports; d a m a g e or 
destroy security facilities; or 
penetrate airports* security ar- 
eas with the intention of 
endangering civil aviation. 
“As recent incidents have 

S 'mly demonstrated, airports 
ve become the newest focus 
of terrorist activity." the Ca- 
nadian Minister of Transport, 
Mr John Crosbie, told del- 


international conventions 
already in existence cover 
security threats against air- 
craft in flight, but they do not 
cover adequately terrorist 
activities at airports. 

The Canadian plan is sup- 
ported by Austria. The 
Netherlands. Australia, Bel- 
gium and other countries. 
Israel's still needs co-sponsors. 

Whichever resolution is 
adopted by the assembly will 
gp to the 33-member council 
of the ICAO for approval.

Anything that helps diagnose heart disease early 
enough to prevent serious illness, is welcome. For heart 
specialists and patients alike. 

BICOR can do this and more, because ifis a major 
advance in diagnostic imaging. Developed by Siemens, 
this new system can look at the heart from a greater 
variety of angles than ever before. What's more, images 
are greatly improved in quality thanks to a combination 
of high resolution image 'mtensifiers and digital television 
techniques. 

But there's more to BICOR than diagnosis. As well 
as speeding up investigations, actual treatment can also 
be earned out in the X-Ray Department All in all, patients' 
stay in hospital is dramatically reduced, and in some 
cases, open heart surgery can be avoided

Fran Philip Jacobson, San Salvador 


Gaunt and bane-weary after 
five years of front-line duty 
with the Salvadorean guerril- 
las, the two young men slung 
their M 16 rifles on their 
backs and walked out of the 
bush to surrender. 

Hereon and Rolando told 
security authorities in the 
garrison town of San Vicente, 
east of the capital, that the 
“inhuman conditions" they 
bad endured for so long had 
finally become too much. 

Worn down by the constant 
shortage of food, medical 
supplies and clothing, they 
bad finally concluded that it 
was a hopeless struggle. 

According to the two defec- 
tors, only the constant vigi- 
lance of their commanders in 
the FAL, the armed wing of 
the Communist Party, pre- 
vented many more of their 
former comrades giving up. 

There was a widespread 
feeling among the rank and 
file, they said, that the struggle 
against government forces was 
causing too much civilian 
bloodshed and hardship. 

Hereon and Rolando had 
participated in numerous at- 
tacks on buses and trucks in 
the region round San Vicente, 
as well as the extensive sabo- 
tage of power and phone lines. 

Like the other main guer- 
rilla factions in El Salvador, 
FAL has been switching its 


operations from confronting 
the Government's increas- 
ingly powerful armed forces to 
“destabilization" of the totter- 
ing economy. 

Measured in terms of the 
cost of damage to the country, 
it is proving a highly effective 
campaign. But such opera- 
tions have lost the guerrillas 
significant support among or- 
dinary peasants, especially the 
rural campesinos on whom the 
burden of the seemingly end- 
less conflict falls most heavily. 

The Government and . its 
military commanders have 
been quick to exploit this 
widespread war-weariness 
through a variety of “hearts 
and minds" programmes. A 
national reconstruction plan 
to repair the many ruined 
roads and blown-up bridges is 
under way, together with at- 
tempts to resettle thousands of 
refugees from the worst com- 
bat zones. 

Not long ago, the Salvador- 
ean Chief of Staff; General 
Adolfo Bland 6n, made a sur- 
prise appearance in the town 
of Ferquin, in the middle of a 
region that was formerly 
under guerrilla control. He 
was there to assure residents 
they had nothing to fear and 
much to gain from the return 
of the Army. 

Memories of military atroc- 
ities are still fresh in these 


pans, but the residents sub- 
mitted lumpily enough to free 
haircuts mom General Han- 
din’s troops and an impromp- 
tu performance by a group of 
clowns accompanying the 
general. 

More appreciated, perhaps, 
were supplies of urgently 
needed medicine and a prom- 
ise that Perquin's electricity 
and telephone services would 
be restored. 

Besides these attempts to 
win over civilian opinion, the 
Army is eager to exploit the 
doubts aniT hardships that 
drove Hereon and Rolando to 
hang up their guns. 

Patrols in what was once 
guerrilla heartland are now 
often accompanied by a “psy- 
ops" — psychological warfare 
teams —handing out sweets to 
the kids and bombarding the 
su mounding countryside with 
leaflets describing the rewards 
for every guemlla weapon 
handed in. Ear-splitting tapes 
of music and political persua- 
sion are also broadcast over 
loudspeakers. 

The Government claims, as 
it would, that this campaign is 
paying dividends. Senior mili- 
tary sources say the overall 
number of guerrillas in the 
field has been halved to 
between 5.000 and 6,000 in 
the past few years.

German submarine. It made me 
very sad, and the sadness re- 
mained with me all day. 

After the death of my father, my 
mother married his best friend, 
John Kilroy, who- had competed 
with my father for her favours 
-when they were still at school in 
die slums of -Birmingham., She 
ended up narryingthem bothcShe 
loved my stepfather, and it was a 
very happy marriage. As a result I 
had two surnames. At home and 
in the neighbourhood I was Rob-

mistake is not in doubt; that it was 
a defffierate. jone .is more than

Liverpool's win over Luton on

gloom. The consoling thing about 
Manchester United's win and the 
fact thatwe’re soil 10 points adrift . v - .

Michael Cockerell's fihn about my

BBC today. It left me slightly 
disappointed.-’ It was fair enough 
and oh my ride. It spoke of the 


_ over

attitude of the 
Liverpool Militants 


he'd say. “He’ll stay-BiUy’.sladJ)ut — r Woody -battle- - for- -Knowsky 
i'll bring him up as mine." North and accurately presented 

my views and. allegations. 
Cockerell reported faithfully- the., 
packing of meetings, the influence 
of Militant and its base in Liver- 
pool, and that national party 
officials had described what was 
happening in my constituency as a 
“scandal". 

But he also. said that I would 
” fight a by-election if deselected. 

We played the film back again, 

- and n o wh ere didi say lhaL It was" 
his assumption, but it will cause 
me trouble^ 

The surprise was the discussion 
that took J place _fn the studio 
afterwards.' Jeremy Corbyn, the 
hard-left MP for Islington North, . 
made me blaze. Oh. he declared, 
nothing to worry about here. AB 
got up by the media. He doesn’t 
know anything about my constit- 
uency. He’s never asked me about 
it and has never, as far as I'm 
aware, visited ilTYet there he was 
200 miles away in the wannth of 
the television- studios pontifical-' 


I was always having to explain 
why I had different names. It was 
my headmaster who suggested the 
simply expedient of putting the 
Kilroy before the Silk, but without 
the hyphen. Some editor or printer 
at LSE when I worked for the 
college newspaper put that in, and 
it stayed. ..... 


OCTOBER 25-26 


At the management committee 
meeting this week, the constit- 
uency secretary, Cathy Toner, 
admitted that she had received a 
letter from the secretary of to 
Liverpool North Branch of TASS, 
the Transport and Salaried Staffs 
union, seeking affiliation to to 
constituency, and that she nad 
refused him. I like the way she

We’ve found another cme. Dave 
Kerr, a Militant supporter, an 
employee of Liverpool City Coun- 
cil and press officer for to 
constituency party, is not. accord- 
ing to the Tobacco Workers 
Union, a delegate. Yet that is how 
he appears on the Hstof delegates 


1 was hoping for a quiet Monday, 
Some hope. The telephone rang 
just before. 7. am. “I have it from 
an authoritative source that you 
-have — resigned from the Front 
Bench team." said a breathless 
Chris MoncriefF, the Press 
Association's chief political 
reporter. • . . 

“That’s right,” I said. “Is it 
because of your problems with 
resetection?” ■“Yes.*’ I felt weary: 
Fd have- to go- through the whole 
story again, not just to various

. that to secreia^ has pre^g for 


constituency; that they used the 
“facucTof the caucus, of packing 
meetings and of intimidation, and 
that I could not give as much time 
and energy to my shadow min- 
isterial duties as they needed or as 
' I wanted to give. 

Irritatingly, Jimmy Young said 
to me: “You haven't solved the 
unemployment, though, have you . 
Robert? At least, that’s what toy~ 
say.” „ ..., - .r - 
• . “No* I said. “Nor has’ the 
Militant MP, Teny Fields. Nor 
has Eric Hefler. Nor can he white 
we have the Tories in power.” 

Immediately the programme 
ended, I received a call from my 
mote in the TGWU. He had bad 
news. Apparently Peter Killeen 
had aiked for the number.' of 
members in the brandies of the 
union that are affiliated to my 
constituency. As to number of 
delegates is based on the n umb er . 
-of members in the branch living in 
the constituency, it is obviously 
important to have this informa- 
tion if we are to confirm that to 
union's branches are entitled to 
the number of delegates that they 
have. 

. . _ The information - was refused. - 
“At least Killeen will now know 
the score,” my informant went on. 
“Can you get me the membership 
figures?” I asked hopefully. “It’s 
already being- done. It may- take 
some time, but HI make sure that 
you get them.” 

What is interesting about to 
TGWU and the Liverpool Mili- 
tants is bow brazen they’ve be- 
come. It’s as if they feel that 
- they’re on the brink of taking over 
the party, or have already taken it 
over and know that they Cannot be 
dislodged. Indeed, that is what 
many people -on Merseyside are 
now saying. They allege that 
Militant has infiltrated -the council 
and the Labour Party so thor- 
oughly that it will never lose 
effective control of either. 

In any event,' Hatton is so 
. cocksure that be not only attended 
a Militant rally last night m to 
Albert Hall, where he received “an 
ecstatic reception" from 4,000 
Militant supporters, but he we nt 
on to attack Neil and suggested 
that he started “to lead and

Cabinet and Neil's reallocation of 
responsibilities. Instead it domi- 
nated them.' 

Just before lundi I recorded an 
interview with Sir Robin Day for 
the BBCs The World At One. He 
asked whether I thought the NEC 
should condemn .Tony 
Mulhearn's candidature if be were 
to be selected instead of me. That, 
I said, would be a matter for the 
NEC Then he changed tack. 
“Would you expect Mr Kinnock 
to condemn it?" 

“I can't ray what Neil would 
do," I replied. 

“Would you hope that he would 
condemn it?" 

“I think he has to make his own 
derisions.” 

• “What would you hope that 
derision would be?” 

“I hope that he would tell the 
truth." 

“What would telling the truth be 
in so far as Mr Mulheam is 
concerned?" 

“Well, dearly - and you're 
doing a very good job of pushing 
me into a corner, aren’t you 
..Robin?.-= dearly, to truth would 
be that Mr Mulhearn's member- 
ship of Militant Tendency makes 
him inappr o priate for member- 
ship of the;- Labour Party and 
inappropriate as a Labour can- 
didate and potential Labour MP.” 
That felt better. 

i he news from to front 
I line today could be inter- 
preted as both promising 
and ominous. The good 
news from the 
GMBATU, to general and 
municipal workers' union, is that 
they do not have five delegates to 
■ ray management committee from 
theXiverpool Militant-dominated 
Branch 5 as to Tot of delegates 
given to Peter .Killeen by the 
constituency secretary claims. 
They lave only three. They’ve 
already raid Lawler is not a 
delegate, so that means another 
one oft but we don’t yet know 
whom. There are now 139 dele- 
gates. I need 70 votes to nun and I 
still have 66 and 10 possibles. Are 
we getting there, albeit slowly? 

The bad news, this time from 
to TGWU, is that Peter Killeen

After Michael Cockerell's BBC-

and I walked In the woods. We 
decided that the film was okay. We - 
coaid five with it. Bat I still had to 
see Jeremy Corbyn, the hard-left 
MP whose contribution to the 
studio discussion had made me 
furious. Jan was angry with him, 
but more worried about what Fd do 
to him. I couldn’t wait In give him 
an example of the “healthy - 
debate” be thought was bring

Two days later, I saw Corbyn in 
die division lobby* Td been looking 
for him in to Commons all day. I 
was miking to Barry Shearman 
and John Evans, the MP for St 
Helen's North, strategically 
placed near to exit through which 
all Labour MPs would have to 

pass, not far from where Bob Parry 
had. offered me -that “de a r all

“Oh Christ,” he said. 

“You know what it's about?" I 
said. 

“Oh aye. Look Rob,” he said, 
“whatever you do, don't hit him.” 
That was to last thing Jan had 
said to me. I was about to tell him 
that when I saw Corbyn walking 
towards us with Michael Meacher 
from the far end of the wide green- 
carpeted, book-lined corridor. 

I strode towards them. 
“Remember,” John Evans called 
from behind, “don't hit him.” 

“Hello, mate,” Corbyn said to 
me. 

“Don't yon 'mate' me,” I 
answered. 

Meacher disappeared. 

“Since when,” I asked Mocking 
Corbyn's way, “have yon been an 
expert on my constituency, eh? 
Since when have you been qaali- 


abont it? So it was all just 'healthy 
debate', was it?” I demanded: 
“Well, how do yon like some 
-healthy debate?” 


Jeremy Corbyn: fracas in the 
lobby with Kilroy-Silk 

I don't remember how long^I 
“spoke” to him. I do remember 
that I said all that I wanted to say 
and to* be became aware of my 
displeasure. The creep. There 
must have been upwards of 200 
Labour MPs in the lobby at the 
time, but no one attempted to 
intervene and no one said a word. I 
learnt afterwards that that was 
because most of them were wait- 
ing, hoping for me to hit him. 
There was, apparently, a great 
demand for the video of the film 
afterwards and several showings 
were provided in the Whips' 
Office.

to mistake of thinking that we 
had finished voting, and I came

Happy Birthday 
don of detectives 


“For what may prove 10 be 
Appleby’s final 

performance-.” intones the 
blurt on the front cover. Is 
this an intimation that, on the 
verge of his eightieth birthday. 
Innes has decided finally to 
lay down the blood-dipped' 
pen he picked up exactly 50 
years ago? If so, he should be 
told that there is no necessity 
for it. His latest work leaves 
no evidence of decrepitude or 
senility in its writer. 

Inspector Appleby appeared 
first in Death at the President's 
Lodging, published in 1936 at 
seven shillings and sixpence. 
"Worthy of a place among 
some of the best recent 
novels'*. The Times enthused. 
The young policeman went on 
to be Commissioner of Scot- 
land Yard and to a knight- 
hood: and he continued 
solving crimes after his 
retirement. 

In Appleby and the Ospreys 
(people, not birds) he is. as he 
has been often before, a guest 
at a country house which 
becomes the setting for a 
bizarre murder. The body is 
duly found in the library, there 
are bats and butlers, antique 
coins and eccentric fellow- 
guests and family-members. 
Sir John, witty, urbane, and 
learned does what he has done 
for a half-century. 

Later Applebys are less 
intimidating to the Ordinary 
Reader than some of the early 
offerings. The hero is a little 
less inclined to show off his 
knowledge of esoteric subjects 
and writings: his jokes and 
asides are (ess obscure. 

Yet to the end (if indeed it 
is) Innes has remained the 
master of the donnish mys- 
tery. the languid crime story 
written as much for the delec- 
tation of High Table at Christ 
Church, where, shorn of his 
pseudonym. J.l.M. Stewart 
spent much of his academic 
career, as for the general 
leading public. 

His popularity through 
more than 50 books (not all 
them Applebys), in spite of his 
sometimes tiresome bouts of 
intellectual superiority and 
obscurantism, says a great 
deal for his meticulous plot 
construction, sense of timing, 
and seldom faltering pace.

APPLEBY AND THE 
OSPREYS 
By Michael Innes 

Goltonc:. £7.95 


Murder by ma mm on 


The battle against terrorism 
cannot be won by air raids on 
Libya, nor by ambushes on the 
Irish border. Victory can be 
achieved only by cutting the 
sources of the terrorists’ 
finance. 

That is James Adams's 
central thesis, and it means 
waging war against drug traf- 
ficking in Latin America, 
smuggling, extortion rackets 
and tax exemption, certificate 
frauds in Northern Ireland, 
and the activities of front 
organizations in the world's 
mam financial centres. 

It is wrong to suppose that 
the essence of modem terror- 
ism is men assembling bombs 
in garrets, or. at lnc other 
extreme, nations such as Lib- 
ya. Svria. and Iran sustaining 
terrorism through huge finan- 
cial support. 

True enough that many 
\rab slates do contribute to 
organizations such as the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organiza- 
tion. but Mr Adams argues 
that terrorist organizations 
only achieve the longevity of 
the PLO or the IRA by

Up against such competition, 
this high-quality short story

mini-chillers from Margaret

One day in 1 950. when Gabri- 
el is II his .pretty young 
mother leaves a fish pie ready 
for supper, and goes PuL ; She 
does not come back. This is 
every child’s nightmare: and 
Gabriel’s Lament. Paul 
Bailey's most complex novel 
so far. seems to me a sad story, 
though it can be read as a 
funny one. It’s a book worth 
reading twice. Its point is that 
the hells of grief and shame 
and lost love are preferable to 
the grotesque pretences that 
people construct to deny 
them. 

Gabriel is left whh his old 
father, who prevaricates: 
Mummy is on holiday, or has 
telephoned while he was at 
school. Finally, he announces 
she has found a younger man 
and will never come back. 
GabrieL doggedly expecting 
her home day after day, 
becomes disturbed and physi- 
cally retarded, “my body ex- 
pressing the grief my mind 
was unaware of". Not until he 
is middle-aged does Mummy 
stop haunting him when, after 
a breakdown, be opens the box 
that was his father's only 
legacy and learns the truth. 

Then, Gabriel writes his

life-story, this “lament". He. 
knows now what happened to. 
Mummy but we don't until 
the end. The cleverest writing 
here is in the way Bailey 
directs the reader's imagina- 
tion (but not romantic 
Gabriel’s) into horrid assump- 
tions about the “terrible 
knowledge" about her fate 
that Gabriel's father conceals. 

The novel stands or foils on 
the figure of Father. Gabriel's 
breakdown happens in Ameri- 
ca. where hie is lecturing on 
itinerant- preachers, about 
whom he has written a book 
that has made him rich. It is 
because of his father that he is

This is a book packed with

'wimp. Biit the points are 
forcefully made, and the nov- 
el like aU Paul Bailey’s books, 
is most cunningly constructed.

ous even when his subject- 
matter is anything but. And

THE FINANCING 
OF TERROR 
By James Adams

becoming financially indepen- 
dent of state sponsors. 

He reckons that the PLO, 
and its subsidiary groups have 1 
assets of about $5 billions, and 
that in 1983 state-sponsored 
donations accounted for only 
about one-sixth of their in- 
come. In the case of the IRA, . 
contributions by supporters 
account for an even smaller 
proportion of its total income. 
This alarming book adds to 
our understanding of the larg- 
er terrorist organizations. 

The existence of such an 
organization cannot be threat- 
ened by picking up the occa- 
sional would-be bomber. The 
only long-term answer is to dig 
up its financial roots. The 
question is whether govern- 
ments have the will and the 
competence to do it. 


The lost memoirs of the 
Roman Emperor Augustus 
have apparently been discov- 
ered and given to the novelist 
Allan Massie to translate in 
his modern style. Massie has 
the pleasure of being his own 
reviewer and commentator 
under the nom de plume of 
Professor Fraser-Graham, 
who substantiates the authen- 
ticity of the imperial memoirs, 
praises their extremes of collo- 
quialism and formal beauty, 
and questions Massie’ s com- 
petence as a translator. After 
this Ossian fun and games, 
Massie writes a witty, illumi- 
nating. and elegiac account of 
the life and intrigues of Augus- 
tus from the killing of Julius 
Caesar until his own death. 
Far more entertaining than 
Robert Grave’s I Claudius, if 
less profound than Marguerite 
Yourcenar s Memoirs of Ha- 
drian, Augustus proves that 
Massie is the best novelist 
north of the Scots border 
where the Roman Empire 
readied its limits. He makes 
Augustus credible as a man: 
wily, ruthless, shrewd, gener- 
ous. admirable. He describes 
the Emperor’s deep attach- 
ment to his wife Livia, and his 
veneration of Vergil whose 
Aeneid is published despite 
the ' poet’s will that it be 
burned after his death. The 
fictitious Professor Fraser- 
Graham did not praise the real 
author enough: but then, as 
Augustus said of Gcero, “Be- 
ware the man who speaks wdl 
of you” — even if he is 
yourself! 

Dvorak in Love is a bio- 
graphical novel about the 
Bohemian composer and bis 
sojourns in America, where he 
wrote his 5ymphony No. 9 in 
E minor From the New 
World. This imaginative 
recreation by Josef Skvorecky 
is rich with feeling for place, 
smell, taste, and past time. It 
achieves the impossible in 
suggesting the connection be- 
tween the senses and musical 
composition and perfor- 
mance. Dvorak is presented as 
an earthy and family man. in 
love with Jozefina, Countess 
Kounic. but really a peasant at 
heart. Skvorecky's novel cele- 
brates with conviction a su- 
preme composer or folk music 
who occasionally soared to the 
music of the spheres.

Piers Paul Read has shown 
before — in novels such as The 
Junkers, set in Germany, or in’ 
foe non-fictional ABve, set In 
Uruguay and Chile— that "he 
can take a foreign setting, 
maybe historical, ami write 
about ft in convincing detail 
This time his theme is the 
destructive ideological divi- 
sions in the France of the 
1930s and the war period, and 
this long and ambitions politi- 
cal-docamentary-cBUi-advefl- 
ture-stnry relates the lives of 
its fictional characters to the 
1 public events that shape them' 
so decisively. 

His aim is to show how 
decent and honest Frenchmen, 
even belonging to the same 
family, cooM bold diametrical- 
ly opposing views about poli- 
tics and religion, and bow this 
fatally weakened France, lead- 
ing first to the defeat of 1940 
and then to the fends of the ' 
Resistance and the .blood- 
letting of the Liberation. His 
hero; Bertrand de Rogjay, is a 
liberal figure caught m. the 
middle. He comes Cram a 
prosperous landowning family 
of extreme-Right Catholics In 
Provence (his brother joins the 
legion that fought alongside 
the Wehrmacht on the Rus- 
sian Front); and be marries 
into an academic family of 
Communists and Marxists. 
Bertrand is' a “free” French- 
man not only in foe sense that 
he joins de GanOe in London, - 
bat because he alone m this 
gallery of bigots is relaiively- 
ud trammelled by ideology, 
(save by a puritan Catholic 
conscience on sexual matters) 
and so can think dearly and 
act decisively as a patriot 

After a failed marriage and 
a listless fife as a sons-prtfet 
in a small Provencal city, de 
Roiqay escapes via Lisbon to 
London in 1940. But here too 
he finds little bat fending, with 
tiw prickly Gaullists and the 
devious British at each others* 
throats. He takes a particular

Towards the end, around

of some Aeschylean or Jacobe-

Auberon Waugh is Britain s 
leading living journalist . I 
learn from foe jacket blurb on 
this selection of his writings. 1 1 
was my hap on a sunless day 
Iasi December to travel in a 
taxi with the LLJ- through 
the blank concrete canyon of 
this city. Unexpectedly, .in a 
corner, I spied a magnificent 
Mahoraia in full bloom. I 
couldn’t prevent myself yelp- 
ing “Look!**. From under foe 
wide brim of his caterpillar- 
shit green velour, Mr Waugh 
was already looking; “Warms 
foe heart, doesn’t itT said he. 
The L.LJ. has written billions 
of words to disguise the feet 
that he. has a heart at all. and 
may be said to have succeed- 
ed. if not entirely admirably, 

in- this peculiar exercize. 

Satiric writing has not been 
given its due praise in this 
country since Matthew Ar- 
nold imposed the criterion of 
high seriousness asihe distin- 
guishing mark of foe classic, 
even though some of our 
greatest classics are -anything 
but high or serious. Children 
ought to read Byron’s Don 
Juan at school. 

Since Arnold, unhappy Vic- 
torian inspector of schools 
that he was. laid his dead hand 
on culture and anarchy (foe 
twin Gods of the satirists' 
pantheon), great literature has 
been associated by schoolchil- 
dren with gloom, misery, and 
maladapiaiioo. (This is a ri- 
diculous overstatement in foe 
tradition of foe LLJ. himself, 
and evidence of the effect that . 
reading 84 of his Spectator 
pieces on foe trot may have on 
the unwary but conscientious 
reviewer.) 

Satire was taught by foe 
Sons of Lea vis, himself a Son 
of Arnold, as if it were entirely 
a matter of foe satiric positive; 
similarly Sidgwkk.& Jackson 
(alias Lord Pom) tell us that 
Bron is “serious at bottom", 

- as if everyone were not .serious 
there. What is important 
about a satirist is whether he is. 
effective in making us laugh or 
squirm. Unfortunately, a gen- 
eration illiterate in satire sim- 
. ply gets upset with a writer like 
Bron, fails to repay him in his 
own coin, and bores itself silly 
with piously condemning 
him. 

. Mr Waugh is versed enough 
in foe Scriptures to know that 
if he has set. himself up as 
flagellum Dei, he must expect 
to be burned in the fire. He 
says, “I have long been in 
favour of savage penalties for 
those who make bad jokes in 
public?, knowing that he is 
among the offenders. If foe 
New Statesmen gave him a 
good review, he would be 
driven to be even more unfor- 
givable in the future. He gives 
a bint of his method in one of 
several pieces inspired; by 
Taunton Post Office, in this 
case reacting to-foe death of 
Baby Malcolm as a result of 
parental neglect:

One woman gave it as her 
opinion that the entire M el- 
fare Department responsible 
should be sent to prison. 
When I suggested. , m my 
hvlpfid way. that hanging 
was too good a fate foe these 
welfare workers, there was a 
slight pause and moderation 
asserted itself. 

Beneath Waugh's most ex- 
travagant attitude, there is a 
profound confidence that 
commonsense will assert it- 
self. once the absurdity of an. 
unexamined position is point- 
ed out. This confidence is 
itself misplaced; too often 
Waugh finds that his public 
■ has not been goaded to rcatt. 
and overbalances himself in 
an effort to swing foe pendu- 
lum back to foe centre again. 
Some of his jokes are impend 
treble to those who have never 
been to a Private Eye lunch, 
but then. Pope’s best jokes in 
foe Dunciad are hardly less as 
impenetrable. ; 

As long as nobody (especial- 
ly not Waugh) seriously thinks 
he is “Britain's leading living 
joumalisf. he is a useful 
gpdfly stinging foe torpid body 
politic. But to be effective his 
touch must remain dry and 
light. He becomes simply tired 
when he is reduced to imitat- 
ing the vices he condemns, in 
pilloring floppiness to become 
floppy, boorishness boorish, . 
‘and hysteria hysterical. 

Waugh ought to be critical 
of himself as one of his own 
“New Britons": he not only 
reads The Sunday Times, he is 
“white and overweight, flip, 
cynical, ignorant and 
boastful”. An . Ethiopian 
would find it hard to distin- 
guish between his and Sir 
James Goldsmith's “disgust- 
ingly ugly face”. 

His haired of humbug exists 
in him alongside a tendency to 
humbug, as it does in all of us. 
He can be careless about 
language, ignorant ~of social 
history (which would give 
dozens of precedents for the 
uncontrollability of the . 
nation's youths/for example),- 
uninterested in political phi- 
losophy, and complacent 
about all hfs defects. 

Nevertheless, his writing 
contains a thousand sizzling 
little shocks that can stir the 
circulation and give more zest 
to the most serious of us. It is 
no small praise to say that 
Waugh has never been co- 
opted even by the causes he 
appeared to support. If he 
wrote less and less hastily he 
might be a classic.

SOME SMALL HARVEST 
ByGlyn Daniel 

Thames <S Hudson. £12.95 


A rchaeology has now be- 
come a glamorous disci- 
pline. In this 
autobiography Professor 
Glyn Daniel locates its popularity in 
the early Fifties; although no doubt 
the origins of its appeal might be 
found m the excavations of Layard 
in Mesopotamia or of Schliemann 
at Mycenae. Perhaps one might 
even go farther back to the Eigh- 
teenth Century, when antiquarians 
travelled around the ruins of En- 
gland with Camden's Britannia in 
one hand and Burke's Philosophical 
Enquiry into the Sublime and 
Beautiful in the other. 

The profession has been democ- 
ratized since those happy days, 
however, as the swarms of ley-hne 
hunters and von Daniken enthusi- 
asts make all too painfully dear. But 
this popularization is in some 
measure due to Professor Daniel 
himself, who, in the days of Ur- 
television, chaired a programme 
known as Animal. Vegetable. Min- 
eral? These wire also the days of 
necessarily “live” broadcasting, 
when Margaret Mead, as Professor 
Daniel recounts in one of the many 
funny stories that enliven these 
Y memoirs, could emerge from an 
intoxicated silence to observe of the 
chairman himself “-.you’ve got 
more brains than I first credited you 
with." 

But. on less fraught occasions, 
stray objects were called up from the 
vasty deep and were promptly 
identified by experts - pre-eminent 
amongst them Sir Mortimer 
Wheeler, whose most famous line 
was: “I was there when this thing 
was dug up.” Relentlessly middle- 
brow it may have been, bui Animal. 
Vegetable. Mineral? was neverthe- 
less responsible for a whole genera- 
tion of young children who wanted 
to be nothing other than 
archaeologists. 





And what of Professor Daniel 
himself? He now has an internation- 
al reputation for his archaeological 
investigations, particularly in the 
strangely seductive area of mega- 
lithic monuments. It is hard not to 
like a man who specializes in 
prehistoric chamber tombs. But 
how did he acquire his thirst for 
prehistory? He was born in Pem- 
brokeshire (in 1914) and on the first 
page of this autobiography declares 
himself to be an “Ancient Briton”. 
From his earliest days he was 
surrounded by the landscape of the 
distant past; he was brought up 
close to Bronze Age round barrows; 
and one ofhis most vivid childhood 
memories is of an old woman who 
lived in a “dark . Neolithic 
cottage., .some strange survival of 
prehistoric times” In this country- 
side, then, “past, present and future 
were one in some mystical confu- 
sion that my reason tells me not to 
resolve.” 

Indeed he makes no effort to do 
so here, and these memoirs are 
notably free from even a hint of 
introspection; the only obsession be 
admits to is one for food, and his- 
permanent fascination with the 
remoter reaches of humankind is to 
be traced only by accident, as it. 
were, in his account of his child- 
hood studies and his admission to 
Cambridge University where, with 


various interruptions, he has spent 
the rest ofhis life. 

He must be an inspiring teach- 
er — among his pupils were Barry 
CunlifTe and Colin Renfrew — but 
such is his reserve about his own 
skills that the rest of the world wifi- 
never know, ft is typical of this 
entertaining but somewhat anodyne 
book that he should be more 
interested in the university than in 
himself, and, in a number of 
anecdotes, he effortlessly summons 
up the ghosts of Cambridge past. 

I n that hot-house atmosphere 
strange blossoms emerge from 
their various little pots, and 
Professor Daniel spends less 
time explaining his burgeoning 
interest in inegalithic culture than 
be does in recounting the equally 
inexplicable relics of the common 
room. 

But this interest in stories and m 
personalities eventually becomes so 
strong that it has all the makings ofa 
defensive manoeuvre: it is as if he 
does not really want anyone to get 
too close to his real concerns, and he 
protects with . a fierce privacy his 
genuine passions. His real interests 
lie in megaliths and in the history of 
archaeology, for example, and yet 
he treats them only sketchily here 
with a chapter of some 30 pages in a 
book almost fifteen times that 


length. This is a pity as well as being 
a mistake, since Professor Daniel is 
at his roost eloquent when he can 
bring himself to talk about his 
vocation. When he describes those 
‘Shipwrecks of time” that have 
dominated his life, you see for the 
first time precisely what kind of 
man fte is. 

What does emerge dearly, for 
example, is his open-mindedness. 
In a profession that like any other 
has its fair share of pedants and 
bores, he seems to have retained 
both the scepticism and the sense of 
humour that are so necessary in the 
steady pursuit of any one goaL 

Although he passes over most 
recent controversies (he makes only 
one small reference to the battle 
between “classical archaeology” 
and “new archaeology”) he under- 
stands that archaeology, like all 
other quasi-scientific or “objective” 
disciplines, is in large part deter- 
mined by such subjective matters as 
individual temperament and belief 
the decay in evolutionary theory, so 
rigorously denied by its adherents, 
is evidence of that Professor Daniel 
himself seems to have accepted with 
some equanimity the complete 
change in the contemporary under- 
standing of megaliths; and his own 
understanding of the frailty of his 
colleagues seems to have prompted 
his interest in the subject of 


archaeological frauds and fakes. 

He is very good, for example, on 
what he describes as “bullshit 
archaeology”, the “ley-hunters and 
the pyramidiots”. 1 am sure his 
scepticism is in large part justified; 
but scepticism can be taken too far. 
These obsessive, credulous people 
are probably closer in spirit to the 
men and women of pre-history than 
are sceptical academics; it is possi- 
ble that, even if they are quite in the 
dark, they may occasionally stum- 
ble upon a solid truth. And while we 
are indulging in such non-academic 
speculations, we might as well point 
out that fraudulence and fakery 
seem not to be recognized as being 
as central to scientific discovery as 
parody and plagiarism are to liter- 
ary creation. 

Some Smalt Harvest does not 
deal with such matters, and in feet 
pretends to be nothing other than 
what it is — an amiable and slightly 
rambling tour d' horizon. In a sense 
this is an autobiography with the 
real life left out — the autobiogra- 
phy of a successful semi-public 
man, a quondam television person- 
ality, a professor. And yet from time 
to time the small Welsh boy, who 
was once fascinated by the remote 
past all around him, manages to 
peer out from these pages. You can 
almost see him marvelling at his 
luck. 


British Bulldog’s 
finest hour 


The seventh volume ofManin 
Gilbert's immense biography 
of Churchill, the bulkiest so 
for. covers the period from 
Pearl Harbour to the end of 
the war in Europe at an 
average of thirty-three pages 
per month. Such amplitude 
may be palliated by the reflec- 
tion that this was the time 
when his hero's reputation 
reached its greatest height. 
The next volume will be time 
enough for “the selling sun. 
and music at the close”; this 
can end fittingly with 
Churchill's VE-Day perora- 
tion: “Advance, Britannia! 
Long live the cause of 
freedom!” 

Research has been admira- 
bly thorough. Every page 
bears numerous references to 
official papers, and the facts 
can be relied on; but Martin 
Gilbert has also made copious 
use of more personal sources. 
He has drawn on the contem- 
porary records and subse- 
quent reminiscences of 
everyone who was close to 
Churchill, from secretary-typ- 
ists to Parliamentary col- 
leagues. His predecessor in the 
task. Randolph Churchill, be- 
gan to record interviews more 
than twenty years ago. The 
result is a vivid and convinc- 
ing narrative. 

Although this is not a 
history of the war. but strictly 
of Churchill's part in it. mili- 
tary operations naturally 
dominate the narrative. Mar- 
tin Gilbert would not. I think, 
claim to be a military histori- 
an; but he understands the 
principles of war very well. I 
was struck, for instance, by a 
footnote that suddenly 
showed how clearly he had 
grasped what the Italian cam- 
paign was about, a subject on 
which many have blundered. 
Churchill observes that the 
Italian surrender would force 
the Germans to form a front 
“on the Alps or the Po": 
Gilbert comments that it 
seemed then too much to hope 
that they could be “lured into 
fighting in Southern Italy”, ft 
was not until later that Chur- 
chill realized that the value of 
a secondary theatre lay in 
containing the enemy rather 
than gaining territory. 

In feet the book is an 
excellent basis for an informed 
judgment on Churchill as a 
strategist. He was undoubted- 
ly an infuriating one for his 
•advisers. He would become 
obsessed with one operation at 
the expense of all others. He 
convinced himself that the 
German war could only be 
won by landing in northern 
Norway, and the Japanese war

by capturing northern Suma- 
tra: both wars were won 
without either operation. 
When it seemed possible that 
we might seize Rhodes he 
“worked himself into a frenzy 
of excitement” according to 
Brooke, who added “I can 
control him no more". This 
linked with his other and most 
frustrated obsession: to bring 
Turkey into the war. thus 
compensating for the great 
psychological damage he suf- 
fered over the Dardanelles. 
Bui Brooke was wrong. The 
contrast with the even more 
obsession-ridden Hitler was 
that Churchill would never, in 
the last resort, act indepen- 
dently ofhis military advisers. 
That was another lesson of the 
Dardanelles. 

It will be more difficult after 
this volume to support the 
popular thesis that Churchill 
favoured a Mediterranean 
strategy over a cross-Channel 
operation and was opposed by 
the Americans. He is shown as 
insisting on an Overlord in 
1943 while Eisenhower called 
it “a drop in the bucket" and 
“unnecessary” compared with 
. the invasion of Italy. 

Contemporary preoccupa- 
tions have their influence. If 
Martin Gilbert had been writ- 
ing five years ago there would 
have been less on the treat- 
ment of Russians serving in 
the Wchrmacht and if ten 
years ago on the bombing of 
Dresden. The description of 
the Yalta Conference is per- 
suasively detailed, bringing 
out the full measure of 
Churchill's achievement, 
unhelped by the moribund 
Roosevelt. 

Personalities are brightly 
delineated, though 1 miss 
Randolph's spicy potted biog- 
raphies. The greatest is natu- 
rally Churchill himself. After 
the most disillusioning of his 
grapplings with the reluctant 
Turks he said to his daughter 
Sarah, as she tucked him into 
bed. “The President of the 
Turks kissed me - twice. The 
trouble with me is that 1 am 
irresistible!" Such is indeed 
the impression left by this 
lively and well-documented 
account of the years of his 
greatest triumphs.

Liberal assembly: Robin Oakley on the implications of the defence Vote; Ronald Butt on misfit Steel 


THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Butcher’s 

hatchet 

As a cabinet committee, considers 
its reponsc to the Peacock Report 
on broadcasting. 1 hear that it is 
not only the BBC’s The Monoded 
Mutineer that is stengdiening the 
case of those who wish to remove 
power from the ITV-BBC duop- 
oly. John Butcher, the Industry 
Minister, told me yesterday that 
he saw John Mortimer's series i 
Paradise Postponed, which has 
just started on 1TV, as more 
insidious than the H crude anti- 
patriotism" of Alan Bleasdale's 
Mutineer. He said: “This oily 
member of the TV establishment 
has made money for 15 years by 
eroding the self-confidence of the 
British. Now this up-raarkeipunfc 
is making another pile complain- 
ing about the loss of self-belief: 
Inevitably, he pokes elegant fun at 
loss of socialist conviction but the 
true venom is reserved for the 
portrayal of the Tory as ao out- 
and-out twit." Butcher's position 
is not academic. My moles tell me 
he has been co-opted on to the 
cabinet committee considering 
Peacock: one of its recommenda- 
tions is that the existing channels 
should be compelled to accept a 
certain percentage of material 
made by independent producers. 

Discretion 

The frantic rewriting of David 
Steel's closing speech to the 
Liberal assembly tomorrow, after 
his defeat in the nuclear weapons 
debate, has had its lighter mo- 
ments. I understand. Tongue-in- 
cheek. one of his advisers 
suggested the insertion of a phrase 
echoing his famous 1982 speech 
telling party members to return to- 
their constituencies and prepare 
for government. To indicate his 
anger, he should end. the idea 
went, with the words: “I have the 
pleasure in sajmg to you at the 
end of this conference, go back to 
your constituencies and think of 
ihc fathers you never knew." 
Steel's good taste, 
needless to say. got the better of 
the obvious relish for the sugges 
lion.

Tempers frayed in Eastbourne the ! 
other evening between Liberal 
peacenik MP Paddy Ashdown and 
. the CND leader. Bruce Kent The 
row began when Ashdown told a , 
fringe meeting that it made sense' 
for Britain and France to co- 
operate to reduce the number of 
nuclear weapons. Kent sat in the 
audience, took note of what was 
said, and then, at a later CND 
meeting, savaged his position. 
Reports quickly reached .Ash- 
down. who sought out his erst- 
while ally and harangued him all 
the way down the corridor of the 
conference hotel. **Hc said 1 
believed in a Euro-bomb, and of 
course I don't." Ashdown told me, 
denying as “wonderful embellish- 
ment'' accounts that he had 
chased Kent down the passage* 
Kent later admitted he had mis- 
understood .Ashdown and had ; 
written promising to correct the- 
mistake: “We were both very ; 
excited and it was a very high : 
tension evening."

two previous requests to visit the

is not optimisticabout the chances

unequal struggle to return to sleep, 
p iced his shaving kit and suit-

PHS 


While euphoric Liberal activists 
were still cheering every gibe at the 
expense of the SDP and their own 
leader in Eastbourne's Congress 
Theatre late on Tuesday night 
David Steel and his parliamentary 
colleagues were attending what 
some called the gloomiest meeting 
of their careers. Alliance unity, 
they knew, was sundered: some 
believed the day had cost them up 
to a million potential votes. 

Steel's long time mentor. Lord 
Mackie. suggested that the party 
leader would be justified in quit- 
ting on the spot- New MPs such as 
Elizabeth Shields and Richard 
Livesey accused the rebels of 
disloyalty. Steel himself had to 
i tear up the speedt he had prepared 
for Friday as the long process 
began of repairing the damage. 

What had happened was what 
they had all feared: the underlying 
tension in the Alliance had broken 
through to the surface. The prob- 
lems of having two leadens with 
conflicting styles and motives and 
of cobbling together a policy to 
suit both ex-Labour right wingers 
who had left their former party 
over its fudging and mudging on 
defence and Liberal activisis 
brought up in a unilateralist 
tradition had proved too difficult 
to solve at one go. 

The problems first became 
apparent in September 1982 when 
the Liberals announced a pro- 
gramme calling for the phasing out 
of Britain's Polaris nudear deter- 
rent and opposing the deployment 
of cruise missiles. A month later 
an SDP discussion paper from a 
committee chaired by David 
Owen, not then the party leader, 
backed both the retention of 
Polaris and the deployment of 
cruise missiles. 

With both Alliance partners 
pledged to the removal of the 
Trident missile programme a 
compromise line was held at the 
1983 election. But the tension was 
there. In September 1984 the 
Liberal assembly backed a docu- 
ment called Uniting Jiir Peace 
which called for Nato to develop 
non-nuclear defence; for oppo- 
sition to the maintenance of an 
independent British nuclear deter- 
rent the removal of cruise mis- 
siles and the inclusion of Polaris in 
arms control negotiations. The 
SDP meanwhile was still commit- 
ted to keeping Polaris and to Nato 
maintaining its nuclear capacity. 

The process of closing the gap 


What sort of 
package is 
now in store? 


began with an important con- 
cession from former unilateralist 
Paddy Ashdown last year when he 
withdrew his opposition to cruise. 
But the real hope was the appoint- 
ment of an SDP/Libeial commis- 
sion to lay the basis for a joint 
policy on what was likely to be a 
key question at the next election. 

Shortly before the document 
was to be published to June a 
journalist interviewed Steel about 
its likely conclusions. As a result a 
story appeared in the Scottish 
press that the commission's report 
was to prove a defeat for Owen. 
Steel, who would have been 
prepared to take rectifying action 
immediately, failed to see the 
paper concerned the next day. 
Owen believed that the Liberals 
were trying to have a go at him. By 
coincidence, there was a meeting 
in Southport that weekend of the 
SDP*s Council for Social Democ- 
racy- at which Owen moved 
straight 'on to the attack. “I must 
tell you bluntly that I believe we 
should remain a nuclear weapon 
state". A few days later be went to 
Bonn and rubbed home die lesson 
with the assertion that France 
could not be allowed to be the only 
European nuclear power.lt was 
not just the Liberals whom Owen 
upset In his own party Shirley 
Williams and BUI Rodgers, im- 
patient already with the one-man 
band style of running die SDP. 
were furious and said he was 
making policy on the hoof. 

The Liberals reacted angrily in 
turn at their party council meeting 
in Wigan m June. There were 
angry accusations that Owen was 
trying to railroad them and 
Ashdown warned even then that 
the Alliance could be blown aparL 
There were bitter arguments be- 
hind the scenes between Steel and 
Owen and between Owen and bis 
Gang of Four colleagues. They aU 
told him he was refusing to 
practise the coalition politics 


which he preached. 

The clash became a public one 
when Steel' said, it would be 
nonsense for the SDP and Liberals 
to go into an election- with 
differing policies on defence. It 
would, he said, be “unacceptable 
to me and incredible to the 
electorate". But Owen countered 
that if he did not get what he called 
a "sound" defence policy then be 
was prepared to risk it 

As the Alliance Standing in the 
polls dropped, the two leaders 
eventually got their act together. 
They agreed to patch up between 
them the thorny question of the 
replacement of Polaris, a question 
left open by the joint com- 
mission’s report. They decided to 
concentrate on the stratagem of 
the minimum European deterrent, 
based on co-operation with the 
French over targeting and the 
refiting cycles of nuclear sub- 
marines. They coukl not believe 
their luck when they went to Paris 
and were greeted with genuine 
enthusiasm on the question by 
both government and opposition. 

The SDP conference went off 
sweetly, with Owen agreeing to go 
to the Liberal assembly to empha- 
size the disarmament aspects of 
the proposed policy. 

What went wrong was that they 
both underestimated the resent- 
ment by Liberal activists of what 
they saw as Owen's pre-empting 
the commission’s report before it 
had been published, forgetting 
that theiraccCptance of the report 
in itself represented a change of 
. attitude for the more doveish 
liberals, since it firmly backs a 
nudear Nato and ays nothing 
about the cancellation of cruise. 
You can only push a Liberal 
assembly so far at once. 

The battie essentially was one 
between the SDP and Steel against 
the suspidous Liberal activists, 
but Owen and Steel were so 
bowled over by their Paris recep- 


tion that they forgot to sell the 
minimum European deterrent to 
the Liberal rank and fife, to whom 
it was largely a new concept. They 
imagined that by raising the 
prospect of an early election they 
could whip the Liberals into line. 
They assumed that because last 
year's Liberal assembly revealed a 
new responsibility the character of 
the party had fundamentally 
changed. What both of them foiled 
to see was that while the SDP 
conference involved both the SDP 
and the Alliance the Liberal 
assembly remained precisely that: 
an assembly determined to lay 
down the Liberal line for negotia- 
tions with their partners. 

Steel became so confident of 
victory that he began to be more 
hawkish in every speech and 
interview, culminating in a tact- 
less address to Liberal candidates 
about modernizing Polaris the 
night before the crucial vote. 

Steel and bis associates were 
predktinga 2-1 margin of victory. 
They foigot that emotion has for 
more to do with winning assembly 
votes than does mere reason. They 
forgot the need of the Liberal 
assembly to let off steam to release 
the tension of working within the 
Alliance. Steel plans now to tackle 
the issue head on in his speech 
tomorrow and he can begin to 
improve the situation quite ' 
quickly. The Alliance MPs will get 
together as soon as Parliament 
resumes, and so will the liberal 
and SDP policy committees. The 
plan is to get a compromise fudged 1 
together to present to a conference 
of the two parties' candidates 1 
before Christmas to expunge the 
memory of Eastbourne as quickly 
as possible. 

The activists who voted against 
Steel on Tuesday do not necessar- 
ily reflect the Liberal Party nation- 
ally. Steel has ignored his 
assembly before and be wfll get his 
deal with Owen in the end. His 
slightly shamefaced MPs are 
pledged to help him get it But the 
question now is how much enthu- 
siasm there will be for that deal 
among the Liberals who will 
actually have to go out on the 
doorsteps and sell it at the next' 
election. 

And another, more funda- 
mental, problem is revived: are 
the Liberals seriously interested in 
winning power?

Politics is all: Kenneth Minogue attacks a fashionable doctrine 


It is widely recognized that ideas 
have consequences. What is less 
widely recognized is that simple, 
rather philosophical ideas can 
have hidden and rather sinister 
consequences. In recent months, 
one familiar idea has been respon- 
sible for most of the prevailing 
irrationalities. 

This the doctrine which trips off 
the tongue in some such form as 
“you can’t keep politics out of* 
. . . sport, or religion, or Scholar- 
ship, or some other area about to 
be devastated by the speaker. 
These unfortunate activities are 
bagged together with politics 
rather in the way adulterers were 
once cast into the Tiber in snake- 
filled bags. And the outcome is no 
less dire. 

Simple confusion i$ the least of 
it Bishop Trevor Huddleston got 
himself into a tangle on television 
bn this issue recently. His version 
was. of course, the politics-and- 
religion package, leading him to 
remark: “The crucifixion was a 
highly political act." He didn't 
actually mean, as the excessively 
logical viewer might have thought, 
that if you want to express your 
religion, a spot of crucifixion 
might fit the bill. He merely 
intended an abstract doctrine with 
which to gloss the political activ- 
ities of priests in South Africa. 

But what is (his politics that 
cannot be kept out of anything? It 
certainly is not (he kind of politics 
that goes on at Westminster, 
which the British have mostly 
kept out of everything for centu- 
ries. Nothing is easier than to keep 
Neil Kinnock and Mrs Thatcher 
out of cricket, the Anglican Prayer 
Book, archaeology or the doctrine 
of the empty- tomb. It is a very 
special politics in which every- 
thing in the world is seen as locked 
in a mighty struggle for the 
replacement of one kind of 
domination by a new order. The 
Marxist version is the class strug- 
gle. which isn't politics at alL but 
an idea ofiimitiess war. 

Now it is true that, once there's 
a war on. it is hard to prevent 
hostile passions from spreading. 
They will turn up in the most 
remarkable places. Jacques 
Barzun once noted a French 
scientist during the First World 
War who demonstrated in his 
laboratory that German urine was 
more malodorous than French. It 
remains true, however, that civi- 
lized states attempt (not always 
with success) to keep innocent 
civilians out of the direct conflict 
and to respect those valuable 
spaces — prisoner of war camps, 
hospitals, etc — where the passion 
to smash the foe is excluded. By 
contrast, we recognize as barbar- 
ians those who treat such special 
areas with contempt, slaughter 
prisoners and bomb hospitals, 
indifferent to the destruction of 
the innocent. 

It is only when one begins to 
realize that the doctrine that you 
can't keep politics out of things is 
ready about war rather than 
pol itics that one can make sense of 
what actually happens. 

When, for example, the politics- 
and-scholarship package was in- 
voked to justify- excluding South 
African scholars from the recent 
archaeology congress at Southa- 
mpton it was to construe the 
campaign against apanheid as lire 
kind ot limitless war in which — 
tough luck — it is just not possible 
to spare innocent civilians. 

it's dear then that the doctrine 
that you can no i separate politics 
from anything else goes further 
than it looks. It refers not just to 
war. but to a kind of war 
conducted on principles of limit-

B> ■ 




The Social Democrats are gen- 
erally presented as the sensible 
and straightforward party and the 
Liberals as silly, idealistic and 
unrealistic. There is something in 
ibis- If they were free to act on 
their own. the Social Democrats 
and their leader would be offering 
policies which accorded more 
clearly with the hard feels of the 
real world than those which have 
generally been characteristic of the 
Liberals. 

Yet the old notion of SDP sense 
and the Liberals' silly sensibility 
has been stood on its head by the 
Liberal assembly’s rebuff to its 
leader, David Steel, over his 
nuclear defence policy. Only ifit is 
right for a party to go to me 
country offering an unreal policy 
devised purely for its own tactical 
purposes is it possible to argue 
rationally that the Liberals were 
wrong, thinking as they da to 
reject it 

Bui the Liberals are not only 
revealed as politically more hon- 
est than their leadership. They 
also acted sensibly,, even in the 
narrow terms of Alliance self- 
interest when they shattered the 
fragile compromise manufactured 
by David Steel and David Owen 
to hide the deep divisions between 
their parties over nudear defence. 
For that policy of looking to a 
European minimum deterrent to 
succeed Polaris could well have 
been discredited just as the general 
election was looming, leaving the 
two parties more dangerously 
vulnerable than ever. 

Owen, of course, understands 
all the problems of feasibility 
attached to a policy which seems 
to depend on a deal over the 
French deterrent at probably too 
high a cost for a weapon less 
effective but perhaps not much 
cheaper than Trident Even so, it 
was not fundamentally dishonest 
of Owen and his party logo along 
with this formula in full awareness 
of its fragility. For they were at 
least acting in the interest Of 
keeping alive within the Alliance 
the defence policy they really 
believe in. the maintenance of a 
British nuclear deterrent after 
Polaris, unless progress in agreed 
international nudear ; . disarm- 
ament were to justify a change of 
policy. Yet even for the SDP there 
was great rid; in a policy which 
was designed simply to hide the 
differences between the two par- 
ties until the votes were garnered. 

For the majority of Liberals do 
not believe in any sort of nudear 
defence. So ifOwen and Steel were 
to find themselves holding the 
balance of • power in a hung. 
parliament it is perfectly possible 
that Steel might find behind him a 
majority of his own Liberals (for 
whp knows which candidates will 
be the lucky ones?) who. would 
reject any extension of nuclear 
policy, and where would the 
Alliance be then? 

Meanwhile, the fundamentally 
unsatisfactory nature of David 
Steel's relationship with his party 
has been reveded by his wriggling 
after his assembly defeat For then 
he immediately began to aigue.

Keeping out 
the new 
barbarians 


less ferocity. Take, for example, 
the declaration by the PLO in the 
early 1970s that tourists to Israel 
constituted “legitimate targets" 
for guerrilla attack. 

What the doctrine means in 
practice is that you cannot sepa- 
rate politics from innocence, 
which is why Nicholas Danfloff is 
currently holed up in the US 
embassy in Moscow. It is not so 
long since the principle of hostage- 
taking was actually enshrined in 
the Soviet constitution. Seen in 
this light, die doctrine is un- 
mistakably barbarism with a mild 
disguise. 

Barbarism is an emotive word, 
and it needs to be if civilization is 
to remain vital. For out of 
barbarism we all came, and to 
barbarism we shall revert if we 
don't keep our wits about us. A 
barbarian is someone who. in 
pursuit of a current impulse, win 
violate any principle and oblit- 
erate any distinction. 

Tbc nicest kind of barbarians 
are our children, who come into 
this world conscious of nothing 
but their overweaning impulses, 
and must be taught to walk quietly 
in school corridors, not to whistle 
in church and to take off their 
muddy boots before entering the 
drawing room. Education is very 
largely a process in which the 
young learn to distinguish the 
different spaces and values of a 
complex civilization. By contrast, 
the barbarians who invaded Brit- 
ain during the first miUenium had 
never come into contact with 
these complexities. They were 
eventually civilized by the church, 
but ft was a bloody business. 

The importance of Christianity 
in that particular episode reminds 
us that the most tragic victims of 
the inseparability of politics doc- 
trine are the gullible churchmen 
who go in for the polincs-and- 
rcligjon package. The reason is 
that they are betraying the very 
origins of civilization itself a 
condition which began to emerge 
as the religious impulse became 
strong enough to mark off certain 
places as holy and sacred. 

Even the basic distinction be- 


tween the public and private 
spheres of life was subsequent to 
this kind of religious spaciaJizing. 
In time, people acquired great 
confidence and fluency in setting 
up special domains, ranging from 
universities and tennis dubs to 
Virginia Woolfs Room of Her 
Own. Civilization consists in the 
multiplication of such special 
places, often with their own 
particular dress, rules, and some- 
times even forms of speech. 

Schools and universities were 
unthinkable until priests had 
established the custodianship of 
more fundamental places. An 
academic congress is thus an 
extension of the religions sphere 
am) should be outside the realm of 
political judgements since it 
perpetuates those elements of 
sanctuary and asylum which the 
Church developed during the 
Middle Ages. 

. From this point of. view it is 
depressing that even those out- 
raged at the intrusion of politics 
into the archaeology congress at 
Southampton made so much of 
the feet that the excluded South 
African was an opponent of 
apartheid. No doubt this is a 
virtue, but i! is a virtue irrelevant 
to the nub of the matter, which is 
that an academic congress is not a 
vulgar political punch-up; nor are 
people normally invited to such a 
congress according to some cur- 
rent test of righteous political 
opinion. 

If one were to look for some 
political benefit from an academic 
occasion, then the case for having 
South African scholars would 
actually be stronger if they were 
supporters of the dreaded apart- 
heid. For unless one regards 
unrighteous opinions with super- 
stitious dread as forms of disease 
against which we are helpless, we 
must assume that contact with 
more liberal opinion would at 
least loosen some elements of 
what is a pretty vulnerable creed. 

After 1945. for example, politi- 
cal purists agitated for the boycott 
of ail things Spanish in order to 
express detestation of the Franco 
regime. The peoples of Europe, 
with a fine democratic instinct. 


took no notice, and poured into 
Spain year after year. They locked 
it in a positive bear-hug of 
economic and social ties from 
which in large measure resulted 
the steady transformation of the 
regime and. eventually, Spain's 
transition to democracy. 

A man with a refreshing grip on 
civilized distinctions was, as it 
turns out. the late Field Marshal 
Rommel. The story is told of his 
meeting an Australian officer in 
the Western Desert, and saying: 
“This is not your war. why are you 
here? Are you here for the sport?" 
The notion that a single activity, 
even one like war. might be waged 
in different spirits, is not one 
likely to occur to the ideological 
campaigner bent on barbarizing 
the world. Such a person can 
recognize nothing except a grind- 
ing and righteous antipathy to 
whatever he has come to think of 
as evil. The old principle that one 
must bate the tin but love the 
sinner cuts no ice. 

In the case of those Common- 
wealth governments which in- 
voked the pohtics-and-sport pack- 
age and boycotted the Common- 
wealth Gaines in an attempt to 
bend the policy of the British 
government, the form of bar- 
barism lies in the insistence that 
all the subjects of a ruler must toe 
the same line. Such regimes turn 
their own subjects into hostages 
against the required behaviour of 
a foreign state. And in the end. 
what did they achieve, except the 
serious weakening of support for 
the Commonwealth? , 

Indeed, virtually all the shifts ! 
and rums of a barbarous attitude j 
to the world — the terrorism, the \ 
boycotts, the righteousness, all the 
indiscriminating expressions of 
hate and persecutory zeal — must, 
in a sense, be rather pure emo- 
tions. because they seldom have 
the justification of effectiveness. 
One is tempted to think that what 
lies behind this new form of 
barbarism is a despairing attempt 
to come to terms with a civiliza- 
tion which imposes great strain 
upon some people, especially the 
simpler kind of intellectual • 

But of course what is ineffective 
at its own level may have serious 
consequences in spreading bar- 
barous practices generally. It is 
thus important' to remember that 
when people say you can't keep 
politics out of religion, or sport, or 
anything else, they arc wrong. We 
can keep anything out of anything 
if we are determined enough: if we 
arc noL we shall soon cease to be 
what we are.

Careers comer today, and we are 
lucky indeed to have the sendees 
of Lord Manpower to give advice 
to all those who have written in. 
As chairman of 48 advisory 
employment agencies, be is 
uniquely placed to put his experi- 
ence at our disposal. 

I would fike to have 48 jobs like 
you. Lord Manpower. How do I go 
about it? I don't have any at the 
moment . — TH of Paddington. 
WeH, for a start, you don’t call 
them jobs, you call them posts. 
For another thing, you should 
have a title of some sort. In my 
own case, my parents had the 
forethought to christen me with 
the unusual fust name of Lord, 
but the more normal course is to 
become an embarrassment to the 
government and be kicked up- 
stairs to the House ofLords. As an 
unemployed person, you are an 
embarrassment to the govern- 
ment; you should write to them, 
explaining your posxtion.- 
Whesever I go sw im m in g at my 
local pool 1 can't help riimWng 
how easy St must be to become a 
lifeguard, as they at around aD 

Good Lord, yes. They do three 
weeks training in blowing whistles 
at people, another in twirling their 
whistles on a string, three weeks 
shouting at people who can't hear 
them, and two weeks training in 
sitting at the top of tall ladders 
without foiling off They also leant 
how to swim in tracksuits, which 
is all they ever wear. 

It seems to be taken for granted 
that spies have to work for one of 
the big powers. But in the old days, 
® Sberfodc Holmes's stories, for 
Instance, the agents were aD free- 
lance, selling to ti* highest bidder. 
Gan one become an independent 
spy? - DB of Leeds. 

A self-employed spy? Well, it's 
certainly possible, though I have 
to point oiit that if .you are 
captured, there wfll be nobody you 
can be swapped for. The best plan 
is to travel by rail as much as 
possible, looking for -those secret 
papers that civil servants are 
always leaving on the seats,- then 
selling them to the Sunday papers. 
If you don't find any. you can 
always make some up. I believe 
that is what ordinary agents do 
most erf* the time. 


I would like to work as a busker do * 
a busy high street, but there seem 
to be too many bye-tows against ft. 
Any ideas? — PC of Epsom. 

Yes. Get yourself registered as: a 
shop selling jeans. These are 
allowed to spill loud music into 
the high street — at least, the 
police seem powerless to stop 
them. 

How do I become one of the 48 
sc r ip twri te r s credited after every

JW of Clapham. 

You go to university with the

I didn't go to university. How dal

SK of Devon. 

You go to a television company 0 
with an idea for a drama series. • 
Thqy tell you that it is protnisug

in their budget. Later you turn on 
your TV and see your dramaserips

NEW SOVIET MAN 


: UP 

30 . 


In his address to the United 
Nations General Assembly on 
Monday President Reagan 
look as his cue a truism which 
cannot be repeated loo often: 
nations do not mistrust each 

Mother because they are armed; 
they are armed because they 
mistrust each other. It is a 
truism that is especially ap- 
posite at present, when the 
conclusion of the first East- 
West arms control agreement 
for seven years has coincided 
with a telling manifestation of 
the East-West divide, the 
Daniloff affair. 

That the arrest of Nicholas 
Daniloff has not so far im- 
peded the slow resuscitation of 
US-Soviet dialogue has been 
applauded in many quarters. 

.^Vords like maturity, common 
sense, proportion, and prior- 
ities have been bandied about. 

Since his arrival in New 
York a week ago, the Soviet 
Foreign Minister has pre- 
served a conciliatory facade, 
he has absorbed America’s 
public anger over Daniloff. he 
has appeared before President 
Reagan for what appeared to 
be a reprimand. He has de- 
clined to be drawn on the 
expulsion of 25 Soviet dip- 
lomats to the UN. 

_ His conduct has been a far 
^ cry from the all or nothing — 
talk on Soviet terms or not at 
all — approach of the late 
Gromyko years. Mr 
Shevardnadze has behaved 
like the international states- 
man the Soviet Union needs. 
It is a kind of progress. 

Yet the progress has been 
achieved so for in two limited 
arenas and by two different 
means and it is not necessarily 
transferable. Progress has been 
achieved, first during Mr 
*4 Shevardnadze’s visit to the 
United States by the. simple 
tactic of removing the fate, of 
Nicholas Daniloff so far as 
possible from the public stage 
and continuing the discussion 
of such weighty matters as the 
role of ihe United Nations, 
East-West arms control and 


the next* Reagan -Gorbachov 
summit meeting as though the 
Daniloff case did not exist 

If those tactics bring about 
the release of the American 
journalist without exposing 
more foreign citizens in Mos- 
cow to the risk of becoming 
hostages, they ' may be ac£ 
judged successful. But there is 
as yet no guarantee that the 
Soviet Union will sacrifice the 
equivalence, once won, be- 
tween their UN employee 
Zakharov and Daniloff and 
this must be sacrificed if 
hostage-taking is to be de- 
feated. 

The second arena of 
progress, the Stockholm talks 
on confidence-building mea- 
sures. could be stalled almost, 
as soon. The agreement is a 
classic diplomatic document 
on a matter of mutual conve- 
nient. . 

. It incorporates .concessions 
from both sides, including the 
acceptance by the Russians — 
for the time being at least — of 
the fact that the British and 
French nuqlear warheads 
should not be reckoned in the 
Soviet-US equation. It has 
codified the current state pf 
East-West trust and estab- 
lished it at a slightly higher 
level than before: But it cannot 
create trust where iione exists, 
nor can it transfer trust to 
other .East-West forums of 
discussion. \ ; V 

Earlier this year in Berne, 
the meeting on human con- 
tacts — the human rights 
counterpart of the Stockholm 
meeting — broke tip without 
agreement when die United 
States vetoed the final docu- 
ment Many European repre- . 
sematives felt betrayed, and ■ 
expressed the belief that a less . 
than satisfactory agreement 
was better than none: Dissent- ' 
eis in Eastern Europe, ’how- ' 
ever, communicated .their 
relief that a false impression of 
East-West understanding on 
human rights had not been 
conveyed by a half-hearted 
compromise. Similar prob- 


lems will arise later, this au- 
tumn at Geneva when the 
missile-counting arms talks 
come up against President 
Reagan’s Strategic Defence 
Initiative. ■ 

The combination of tech- 
nical sophistication and the 
cosmic unknown arouses in 
Soviet officials still a sense of 
insecurity and perhaps inad- 
equacy which makes com- 
promise unlikely. And it was 
the SD1 for which the Soviet 
Foreign Minister reserved his 
harshest words at the United 
Nations on Tuesday. ‘ 

■ But the American side at 
Geneva is not being helped by 
die lukewarm support of its 
Naio allies for the concept of 
the SD! (other.than as a source 
of research funds), still less by 
the halfheartedness with which 
some people in some Nato 
countries, Britain included, 
view their long-term obliga- 
tions to the Alliance. When it 
comes to the good repair of 
alliance cohesion, building 
confidence at Stockholm is an 
easier- task than negotiating 
mutual security at Geneva. 

In this context, it is under- 
standable that the US Defence 
Secretary, Caspar Weinberger, 
should openly express his 
country’s concern that a future 
British. Labour Government 
would, relinquish Britain’s 
nuclear capacity. His remarks 
were prompted by a Panorama 
inquiry, not issued as a dip- 
lomatic demarche. And it is 
not unreasonable that both 
Labour politicians and, more 
important, the voters should 
harbour no illusions about the 
consequences of a non-nuclear 
policy. .. | 

But the feet that Mr 
-We inb erger's" remakrs ' were- 
leaked in the.US.at a delicate . 
moment in East-West diplo- - 
macy may! both suggest and' 
provoke a lack of trust among 
allies. At a time when Soviet 
diplomacy is showing un- 
wonted sophistication, that 
could rebound to., 
Washington’s disadvantage. 


RETURNING LOANS 



Conservative Education Sec- 
retaries. from whatever wing 
of the party they come, tend to 
be dragged by brute necessity 
to the same conclusion. The 
best way of releasing addi- 
tional resources to improve 
education is to make changes 

* in our uniquely generous sys- 
tem of grants for students’ 
living expenses. 

The history of student loans 
is a chequered one. Labour 
looked seriously at the- 
possibility in the 1970s. Sir 
Keith Joseph twice pul pro- 
posals before Cabinet, once in 
this Parliament and once in 
the last. Now Kenneth Baker is 
again raking over the coals. 

These recurrent attempts to 
put student loans on the 

* political map suggest how 
compelling is the logic which 
drives Education Secretaries in 
this direction. They are boxed 
in on so many fronts — by 
their lack of direct influence 
over local authority admin- 
istration of three quarters of 
the service, by fluctuations in 
pupil numbers, by the continu- 
ing pressure on public spend- 
ing totals - that the prospect 
of releasing funds which have 
nothing to do with education 
directly to improve the quality 
of teaching and of learning is 
distinctly alluring. 

. as well as educational 

■ attractions, there are economic 
and fiscal ones. The task of 
keeping public spending under 
control in order to contain 
borrowing and reduce taxes 
inevitably gets harder year by 
Year. The process of taking 


If our society has seemed a 
divided one for the last quarter 
of a century, the fault must he 
with Yorkshire County 
Cricket Club and ns most 
celebrated player. Ii has .not 
been an issue of the Red Rose 
versus the White, the haves 
and the have-nots, or the 
North against the South. It has 
bwnaSsc of whether every 

decent Englishman (or 
woman) has been for Geoffrey 
Bovcott or against him. 

Bear that in mind and his 
dismissal this week by the 

county he has a,wa >' s h ^5 
proud to call this own should 
cultivate a wistful w .or 
Whatever the rights and 
■ wrongs of it summers will 
“«n. quite the same 

ag Thii he is ai leas, partly to 

blame for the con^y 
which has always cloudcd his 

illustrious career 

aucstion. He has in his time 
refused to play f° r England 
apparently piqued at not be- 


.salami Sices off the,, whole 
range of public spending pro- 
grammes is one which tends to 
maximise political discomfort . 
while minimising returns to 
the Treasury. To make 
progress the Government has 
to change the way in which 
whole services are provided, or . 
financed by giving the private . 
sector a larger role and the 
taxpayer a smaller one. . _ : 

Nor are the politics al- 
together unattractive. • While 
free marketeers are keen to see 
greater choice and responsibil- 
ity returned to consumers of 
further education, those on the 
left can see the injustice of 
transferring money from the- 
average taxpayer to a class of 
people who over their lifetime 
will generally earn a higher 
than average income. . 

To the extent that parental 
contributions to student 
maintenance may be replaced 
by loans the change will also be 
welcomed by parents. It was, 
after all. the rise in parental 
contributions which prompted 
the revolt of the shires in the 
autumn of 1984. Even stu- 
dents may welcome the greater 
dependability and indepen- 
dence granted, or at least 
implied, by funding from out- 
side the home. 

But there are mqjor political 
obstacles, too. and these will 
have to be overcome in the 
design of the scheme if loans 
are to gain acceptance where 
they have foiled so often 
before. The objection to loans 
is perhaps seen most clearly 
among those self-made 

STUMPED 

ing appointed captain — has 
disqualified himself less di- 
rectly by playing a winter’s 
cricket in South Africa and, on 
one notorious occasion in 
India, has walked away from a 
match pleading sickness, only 
to be subsequently discovered 
quietly playing golf. It has not 
been the kind of conduct to 
endear him to the England 

selectors. ... 

But Boycott has been soil 
less popular with his fellow 
players. He has been accused 
of dullness at the crease and 
dourness away from it, of 
playing for himself rather than 
for his team, of a selfish 
dedication to his cricketing 
career, and of being 
unacceptably professional. 

At 45 years of age. however, 
he remains a rare cricketer. To 
be sacked by his county after 
topping its batung averages 
again (he averaged over 50 this 
season) seems a curious way to 
go Is he really that unplay- 
fbic? Industry, ' politics, fi- 


Thatcherite supporters who 
would generally support 
whole-heartedly any switch 
from public to private finance, 
or from grant to loan, but who 
are hesitant about a change, 
which they see as denying to 
others a chance to better 
themselves which they them- 
selves enjoyed. 

Student loans do not, in fact, 
kick away the ladder of 
opportunity. Successful stu- 
dentsavill have no difficulty in 
repaying them and should 
know this-in advance. Here the 
experience of other countries 
is significant Loans do not 
seem to deter highly motivated 
young people from poorer 
families in die US. 

If, moreover, they cause 
potential students to think 
more carefully about the bal- 
ance of advantage to them of a 
course of higher education, 
that might be no bad thing. It 
would be a positively good 
thing if loans persuade them to 
compare the relative long-term 
advantages of different 
courses — especially since 
courses attracting commercial 
sponsorship will gain a relative 
advantage. But these concerns 
aigue in favour of generous 
terms and perhaps safety nets 
for graduates who fall on, hard 
times. 

Public expenditure savings 
could be some years in coining 
through. Initially public 
spending could even be higher 
if a proportion of parental 
contributions is replaced. But 
if the Treasury wants to win 
the war it must be prepared to 
throw away the first skirmish. 


nance are worlds peopled (if 
not entirely) by extremely 
“professional” persons, whose 
contributions to the nation’s 
well-being go unquestioned. 
Moreover, to dismiss Boycott 
on the grounds that he is 
blocking the path of advance- 
ment for younger promising 
players is an explanation 
which makes little sense out- 
side Yorkshire. Nor is it easy 
to understand why he should 
be penalized for making runs 
slowly, when at least he makes 
plenty of them. 

This nation's cricket 
grounds have surely not seen 
the last of Geoffrey Boycott, 
which must mean that we have 
not heard the' last of him 
either. This is a happy thought 
on which to end. Whatever 
one 'may have thought of this 
enigmatic cricketer, the last 24 
years would have been the 
poorer without him. To be 
stumped by his own county 
side must make him feel rather 
hard done by. 


Standing in the 
way of customs 

From Mr L Landau 
Sir. I recently returned from a 
Caribbean ' cruise, arriving at 
terminal 4. London Airport, at the 
same time as perhaps another six 
jumbo jcis. ■'■ 

On entering the ’’red” customs 
channel 1 found only one customs 
officer in attendance and. six 
people waiting to be dealt with. 

Ten minutes later the queue had 
not moved and it become clear- 
that it would take at least another 
hour to get through. Being im- 
patient. I went to the customs 
office to enquire why it was that 
there was only one officer in 
attendance at -what was supposed 
to be the leading airport terminal 
in Europe and pointed out to the 
chief customs officer that there 
were three officers, ostensibly hot 
doing anything, watching the pas- 
sengers pass through the “green” 
section. • 

As a result of my intervention 
these officers were brought into 
the “ red” section and the short 
queue was quickly disposed of.- .. 

The senior customs officer then 
asked me to accompany him .into 
the “green", section to see for 
myself that there was not a. single 
officer on duty and that, as a 
result, anyone with contraband 
could enter the United Kingdom 
without risk of detection. I was 
told that because of a shortage of 
staff this was quite a common 
occurrence. 

If the Government is really 
determined to stop the smuggling 
of drugs . Into this country some- 
thing must be done to improve the 
customs services at buf : major 
airports, h is ludicrous thaita total 
of four- or five customs officers 
should be in attendance to handle 
ihe many thousands of passengers 
arriving at London Airport in any 
one hour. 

The temptation for someone 
with the odd bottle ‘of Scotch in 
excess of his allowance to pass 
through the' “green” rather than 
the “red” channel is under- 
standable, particularly when he 
.may be detained for an hour or so 
to pay the duty. 

‘My ’plane carried a farce num- ' 
.ber of fellow passengers from my . 
cruise ship: Most went through the. 
-“green" channel, buta-fcw-of us - 
took up valuable time of customs 
officers wbo could have been 
better employed.

Third World patois 

From Mr Manin Weston 
Sir, . Mr McCrum’s ‘ optimism 
about the future of English (Spec- 
trum, September 1 7) seems to me 
to be very insecurely based- Lei it 
be admitted straight away that we 
are here in the realm of specula- 
tion, with only language history to 
serve as a possible pointer; but 
your correspondent does not ad- 
' duce any Evidence to counter Dr 
Burchfield's view that English will 
become increasingly fragmented, 
an opinion which can at. least 
derive some support from the 
history of Latin. 

Mr McCrum argues that forces 
of standardisation (impliedly not 
available to the Romans) will 
prevent English from disintegrat- 
ing completely, although he 
recognises that powerful local 
varieties of the language will 
continue to develop. 

At this point his vision of the 
future becomes difficult to grasp: 
“Recognising a plurality of En- 
glish today, we get closer to the 
world's view of English.” • • 

Whatever that means in prac- 
tice, Mr McCrum has not appar- 
ently considered the ill effects of 
standardisation itself. From long 
; experience of working as a linguist 
in an international environment 
in which English is the main 
lingua franco, as it is to an even 
greater extent in the world as a 
whole. I am convinced that 
standardisation — i.e., reduction 
to the lowest common denomi- 
nator — is a for worse threat to all 
forms of English than creative 
divergence. 

Yours faithfully. ■

Bath, sin city? 

From the Leader of Bath City 
Council 

Sir, I was sorry to read (September 
1 5) of Mr Pearce's experience with 
certain hooligans during a visit he 
made to our city earlier this year. 

We have around a million 
visitors a year to Bath from all 
over the world. The overwhelming 
response of these people is that 
they enjoy their visit and can walk 
. freely here, both before and after 
dark, without feeling at risk. This 
is especially appreciated by our 
visitors from America. 

It is true that, in common with 
many other cities, Friday and 
Saturday nights are busy and there 
arc occasional incidents which we 
could well do without. Police 
mobile and foot patrols are in- 
creased at these times. 

. The city and police are not 
complacent. I can assure your 
readers that the centre of Bath will 
not be surrendered to ’loughs”. 
Mr Pearce's experience will .re- 
main the exception rather than the 
rule. 

Yours faithfully.

Sir, On September 15 you printed 
a photograph of By Cathedral and 
disclosed that £4 million was the 
minimum sum needed for its basic 
repair, including £800,000 for the 
roof of the knave {sic). What your 
readers may not realise is that the 
knave jn this pack is the Govern- 
ment. If £4 million is raised, and 
spent on these repairs, 1 5 per cent, 
or £6 00.000. will be mulcted in 
VAT. The same fete awaits Salis- 
bury Cathedral, where VAT up to 
a sum of.£900.000 will have to be 
paid from the £6 million which the 
public is being asked .to subscribe 
for the repair of the spire. 

The Historic Churches 
Preservation Trust, together with 
its sister charity. The Incorporated 
Church Building Society, attempts 
to help with the repair costs of 
churches, and chapels, which are 
usually for beyond the capacity of 
their congregations to defray. Last 
year, some 265 such buildings, 
were aided by grants and loans in 
this way to the tune of £565.000. 
Al^, such p sum is not even 
sufficient to pay the VAT exacted 
which, in the same period, last 
year amounted to over £ I million. 

.It. is. of course, true that the 
' Government, '.through English 
Heritage, makes grams towards 
the cost of these repairs where the 
buildings are of sufficient histori- 
cal dr architectural merit; though 
not to cathedrals, which are 
outside its limit These grants, 
given to nearly 500 ecclesiastical 
buildings last year, amounted to 
some £4 million. . 

:h is estimated, however, that 
the total sum expended in any one 
year on the repair of churches and 
chapels is over £5Q million,. from 
which between £6 million' and £7 
m illion is paid to the Government 
in VAT. The Government, tfiere- 
. fore, receives in VAT from the 
repair of churthes considerably 

Pressures on NHS 

From Mr Ray Whitney. MP for 
Wycombe (Conservative) 

Sir, Mark McCarthy’s article 
("Politicians can harmyour health 
service”, September' 17) is a 

standard indeed -classic- — 

example of the views on the NHS. 
held' by health service insiders 
.which- J- cncbuhiered Yery_ fre-; 
quently during my twelve months 
as a health minister, viz., an 
adequate analysis of the problems, 
but a failure to propose solutions 
which really measure up to what is 
needed. 

- Mr McCarthy suggests that 
general practice needs serious 
attention, ll is getting it in 
Norman Fowler’s consultation ex- 
ercise on the proposals in his 

-primary health care discussion 
document — with a disappoint- 
ingly negative reaction so far from 
the BMA. 

He is wrong to say that health 
education hardly exists, but cer- 
tainly there is great scope for 
making the Health Education 
Council much more effective and

Clearing the air 

From Mr A r . Wat arson and Mr 
Tony Paterson - 

Sir. We welcome the announce- 
ment (report. September 1 2) of the 
£600 million. 10-year programme 
to curb at last the CEGB’s 
contribution to Scandinavia’s 
haunting acid rain tragedy, but it 
is very much a starting point. It 
win not be enough to clear the air 
politically or environmentally. A 
foster, larger programme of “retro- 
fitting” our coal-fired power sta- 
tions is essentiaL 

Joining the 30 per cent club (as 
advocated within the DoE but 
vigorously resisted even now by 
the CEGB) is the minimum 
political step necessary for inclu- 
sion in a comprehensive green 
package in the next Conservative 
manifesto. Since Britain has al- 
ready cut back its national sulphur 
emissions by 23 per cent since 
■ 1 980, we have only to cut another 
7 per cent by 1993 to reach the 

Rugby violence . . 

From Mr J. /. Brennan 
Sir. Whilst I • admire David 
Hands’s co m me n ts on David 
Bishop’s conviction for violence 
on the Rugby field (September 6), 

I thought he might have addressed 
himself to the reasons for the 
unquestionable increase of vi- 
olence in Rugby Union football. 

I played first-class Rugby, some 
of it at international level, be- 
tween 1950 and 1 961; most of my 
games were at light-head prop. In 
all that lime 1 sustained only one 
serious injury, the fault being 
mine — a case of slipshod tech- 
nique on my part in a tackle. 

There were, of course, punch- 
ups — in such a game the 
occasional flare-up of temper is 
inevitable. Bui what 1 do run recall 
is the kind of deliberate assault for 
which Bishop ha* been convicted: 
or what happened.' some years ago. 
to J.P-R. Williams at the hands of 
the All Blacks. Certainly when I 
played, if a tackled player did not 
release the ball as the laws require 
I would have had no hesitation in 
encouraging him to do so another 
way. What I would not have done 

— and I never saw such a thing 
done - was to kick him in the face 
or the groin or the kidneys. This 
appears' now to be common 
practice. 

The reasons, presumably, have 
to do with sbcidogica! changes 
and attitudes to violence irr society 
in general. They must also have to 
do with increased competition 
and desire to win (and despair at 
losing). 1 have little doubt foal an 
important factor in this equation 
is the change in the sort of man 
who coaches Rugby, especially at 
schools' level. 

The man who taught me to play- 
saw it as a mere pastime: when we 


more than it gives in grams to 
assist such repairs. 

Many representations have 
been made over the years to 
successive Treasury ministers, 
who have all made a show of 
sympathy but have rejected the 
possibility of exempting ecclesias- 
tical buildings from this crippling 
impost It is hard not to regard any 
Government professions of con- 
cern for the preservation of this 
part of the national heritage as 
disingenuous. 

1 remain, yours truly.

September 22. 

From Mr AL M. Taylor 
Sir. I sympathise with the Rev R. 
E. Gage (September 13) in having 
to find a further £125.000 for his 
ancient church. Demolition is not 
an option for churches in use 
which are a significant element of 
our architectural arid historic her- 
itage. 

However. ‘ in my experience; 
some of the breathtaking es- 
timates provided by “approved” 
builders, contractors and other 
specialist firms are due to the feet 
that the Church Commissioners, 
English Heritage and other super- 
visory bodies insist on work being 
carried out to the highest possible 
specification. 

This may well be sound policy 
in theory, but in many cases the 
work could be done to an accept 4 - 
able standard at much lower cost. 
Yours faithfully.

beginning a change in that direc- 
tion which will soon be bearing 
fruit And he is certainly right to 
say that medical attitudes must 
change _ towards greater recog- 
nition of the need for caring rather 
than treatment But these points 
do not get near toco ping with the 
pressures generated by an ageing 
population, medical advance and 
' public expectatibh-of high-quality 
medical care, exacerbated by the 
political and structural problems 
of the NHS. . 

If a solution really is to be found 
— which should be one which 
largely removes the service from 
the political bear garden and 
preserves the essence of the NHS 
to which we are all committed — 
we need to took much more 
honestly at radical alternatives in 
the development of fending and 
the. organisation of health care. 
Merely squeezing another £100 
million or so out of a Chancellor 
(of any party) will not produce the 
necessary answer.

Maiden Castle 

From the Chief Executive oj 
English Heritage 

Sir. Mr R. N. R. Peers (September 
13) suggests that the English 
Heritage excavations at Maiden 
Castle are being carried out at the 
expense of excavations on the 
route of the Dorchester by-pass. 
This is not the case. 

A preliminary survey of the by- 
pass route has already been under- 
taken as pan of the Maiden Castle 
project and it is dear that it 
includes archaeological sites. 

. This year. as. every year, the 
budget for rescue archaeology will 
be underpressure. To augment the 
fends available for this work, 
English Heritage considers that 
developers, whether public or 
private! should make provision 
for the archaeological recording 
which may be necessary in ad- 
vance of their works. 

We have pressed this view on 
the Department of Transport, 
both in respect of the Dorchester 
by-pass and in regard to their I SO 
miles of new roads which arc to be 
sianed .in 1986-87. for Which there 
has been no increase in the rescue 
archaeology budget.

FROM THE MADRID 
GAZETTE 

OFFICIAL ARTICLE 

MADRID, Sept. 18 

His Majesty's corvette the 
Dioment, which arrived in the port 
of Cadiz on the 16th of last month, 
has brought official dispatches, 
containing the interesting intelli- 
gence of the pacific entrance of the 
King's troops into the capital of the 
Viceroyalty of the kingdom of New 
Granada. 

Lieutenant-General Don Pablo 
Morillo. General in Chief of the 
Expeditionary Spanish Army, has 
transmitted to the Secretary of 
State and Dispatch for the War 
Department an account . of this 
event, (feted from his headquarters. 
Santa Fe de Bogota. May 31. in the 
following terms:- 

**. . . I have the satisfaction to 
inform your Excellency, that the 
troops under the command of 
Colonels Don Miguel de fe Tone 
and Don Sebastian de fe Calzada 
entered this capital of the viceroy- 
alty on the 6th of the present 
month, after the pretended govern- 
ment and the troops had aban- 
doned it, flying disorderly in 
different directions. . . 

“On the 9th and 11th. Captain 
Don Antonio Gomez came up with 
the enemy, whom he routed with 
only 200 men, taking all their 
horses, arms, ammunition, bag- 
gage, &c.. and throwing into com- 
plete disorder the miserable 
remains of the rebels, who fled 
towards the plains of St Martin, 
where the sword of justice will 
overtake them. Several hundreds of 
soldiers have come in with then- 
arms. to avail themselves of the 
pardon which has been granted 
them. 

“Colonel Don Francisco Warleta 
occupied Medellin on the 6th, and 
subsequently the whole province of 
Antioquuu which the Rebel Gov- 
ernment abandoned. 

“These fortunate events were 
the result of the march of five 
columns, extending from Barmas 
to the Atrato, and which, advanc- 
ing at the same time, penetrated 
every quarter of the Viceroyalty, 
formed their junctions at the 
allotted points, secured the country 
in their rear, and marched through 
deserts and uncultivated wastes 
which are- seldom passed, are 
destitute of habitations, and were 
then inundated by unceasing rains. 
These marches prudently and for- 
tunately directed, and the attacks 
with which all parts of the territory 
were menaced, insulated the differ- 
ent provinces.- and divided the 
forces of the enemy, wbo was 
defeated before he was aware of our 
plan of opoations. The fifth 
column, which is that of the 
Atrato. ought to be already, accord- 
ing to the accounts from Colonel 
Warleta, united in the little prov- 
ince of Cboco. which the Colonel 
will attack in the case of resistance. 

“Hie remains of the enemy now 
possess only the Llanos and 
Popayan. The winter inundations 
in the former do not permit any 
movement to the provinces from 
Venezuela, for the purpose of 
reinforcing the rebels of the plains; 
and they are about to be attacked 
by Colonel fe Torre, who will drive 
them back on the inundations, and 
either destroy them or compel 
them to surrender. Besides, many 
of the inhabitants of the plains of 
St Martin, as well as those of 
Casanere, wish for the arrival of 
the troops. Colonel Warleta will 
march upon Popayan as soon as 
the column of the Atrato and the 
forces of the Magdalena shall be 
united — 

“I may now, most excellent Sir, 
be permitted to observe, that the 
expedition which the King intrust- 
ed to my command has, within the 
period of one year from my arrival 
in America, fulfilled all that his 
Majesty was pleased to anticipate 
in the private instructions ad- 
dressed to me. 


Drivers at risk 

From Mr A. J. C. Kerr 
Sic, Mr Pierre Tester (September 
19) has a valid point about driving 
hazards. Continental motorways 
have lay-bys spaced out every five 
kilometres, suitable for most of 
the purposes which he mentions. 

In the UK they are generally 
unknown, possibly because they 
would ‘be detrimental to the 
profits of those holding con- 
cessions for service areas. 

Yours faithfully.

Personal affront 

From Captain D. C. Hebron, RN 
Sir. While walking my dog in 
Fareham High Street early this 
morning I noticed one of the many 
computer terminals now littering 
the fronts of banks and building 
societies flashing with particular 
urgency; “Sorry, l am temporarily 
out of action”. 

Should I caH the computer 
equivalent of the AA or what, I 
wondered. More seriously, how 
can a nationwide organisation 
allow its computer people to 
misuse the personal pronoun in 
this way? 

Yours faithfully. ■

A SPECIAL REPORT ON WALES 


By Glen Humphries 


Rising Sun 
fills the 
valleys with 
a new light 


The coal black face of Welsh 
: industry is slowly but surely 
■ being scrubbed clean and its 
“aching body is getting a new 
while overall to wear. 

Traditional images of Wales 
as the land of heavy industry 
linger on but in reality, coal, 
steel and shipping are no 
longer the major employers. 

Welsh industry has looked 
abroad for its salvation and 
foreign companies now em- 
ploy more workers than the 
two traditional big employers, 
coal and steel, put together.

In the 10 years since ns 
formation, the Welsh 
Development Agency has 
been fighting to change the 
perception of Wales among 
businessmen across Offa's 
dyke. It has had to dispel the 
image of workers with en- 
trenched attitudes and work to 


The legacy bequeathed the 
agency in 1976 was bleak and 
it became bleaker. Coal, steel 
and textiles were in a relent- 
less decline. When the miners' 
strike started in 1984 there 
were 28 pits employing 21,500 
men. Now there are just 16 
mines and 12.500 miners. 
Steel jobs have fallen from a 
high of 72.000 in 1970 to 
20,000. all employed at Port 
Talbot and Llauwem, near 
Newport. Steelmaking has 
ended at East Moors in Car- 
diff. Ebbw Vale and Shotton.

The WDA’s task of rebuild- 
ing an apparently shattered 
economy, though the slump 
had yet to bite, was not helped 
by Welsh reluctance to create 
its own entrepreneurial soci- 
ety. Outsiders had always 
been relied on to bring secure 
work. Only the Welsh yeam-

ing for education offered 
hope.* 

Against this desperate back- 
drop, the WDA proved It is 
possible at least 10 stem the 
flow of jobs out of the country, 
and the industrial base is 
broader than ever. There are 
now 48,000 workers employed 
in WDA factories, either 
rented or bought from the 
agency. 

What started as a fairly 
straightforward brief to 
plough public money into the 
building of factories ready to 
rent to new firms at a reason- 
able price has become a far 
more sophisticated operation. 

The Welsh Venture Capital 
fund, which the WDA op- 
erates joinily with . other 
groups such as county coun- 
cils and leading City institu- 
tions, was launched in 


January last year with £5.6 
million 

The Cardiff Consortium is

single point of access to seven 
venture' capital funds, the 
WDA being only one. Both are 
keen to provide cash for 
companies with growth

RIGHT ON THE M4 CORRIDOR 


the most startling as- 
pect of the new economic 
structure is the rise of the 
Rising Sun over the valleys. 
Wales now has a higher 
concentration of Japanese 
companies than any other 
region in Britain — the num- 
ber will be 12 when 
Matsushita -arrives, in New- 
port next year. 

Panasonic chose Newport 
for its first European type- 
writer and office automation 
plant after the success of its 
colour television production 
plant in Cardiff 

But what is it that attracts 
the shrewd Japanese business- 
man to a Celtic fringe region? 

Kazuo Murata of Yuasa 
smiles a lot when he is asked 
this frequent question. “I like 
Wales." he says. “The Welsh 
are all so friendly and ex- 
tremely hard workers.” 

Mr Murata, who likes to be 
called Ken. arrived in South 
Wales five years ago from 
Osaka to set up the British off- 
shoot of Yuasa Batteries in 
Ebbw Vale and has seen 
turnover triple: By the end of 
the 1 year he hopes to employ 
about 300 workers. 


Yuasa is the biggest manu- 
facturer of rechargeable bat- 
teries in Japan and third 
largest in the world. 

The Japanese invasion of 
Wales -b egan in 1972 with the 
arrival ofTakiron, the plastics 
maker, and was reinforced the 
following year by Sony, the 
electronics giant, which chose 
Britain in preference to West 
Germany or France. ' ■ 


goods more cheaply than their 
counterparts in Japan. 

Since 1979, when the slump 
became newsworthy, the Japa- 
nese have doubled . , their 
in vestment But they are only 
one of many countries whose 
industrialists have chosen to 
come . here. In the last ' six 
months five new US investors 
have been attracted. 


Investment by 
Japan doubled 


Hiro Nakamura, the direc- 
tor and general manager of 
Sony's Bndgend plant -which 
employs 1,500' people, says: 
“The choice came down to 
Scotland or Wales. We chose 
Wales because it had good 
road and rail links and factory 
space immediately available. 

“Bridgend has a history of 
constructive industrial rela- 
tions and the workers are very 
flexible and hard-working.” 

These sentiments are ech- 
oed by the majority of Japa- 
nese firms. A WDA survey 
revealed this month that Japa- 
nese basses believe their 
Welsh workers are producing 


High-tech industries are 
moving on however. And if 
“microchip” was the buzz 
word of the 1970s and early 
1980s. the new word at the 
WDA is “ bugs”. 

Biotechnology, the latest 
phase of the new industrial 
revolution, encompasses a 
-huge. range. oT developments 
from research into bugs that 
eat garbage .to a' company 
making' bandages from sea- 
weed. Bugs promise ip: be. a 
growth business. . 


‘It’s going to be bi&very 


big. You've heard of Silicon 
Valley and Silicon Glen, well, 
we are imo Cwm Bug — Bug 
Valley.” jokes Huw Roberts, 
the WDA head of marketing 
services. : 

Twenty-nine biotechnology 
firms have set up in Wales and 
the academic institutions have 


nol been slow to jump on the 
bugwagon. A special two- 
storey Innovation Centre ts 
being built at University Col- 
lege, Swansea. 

Biotechnica in Cardiff 
which has strong US links, has 
developed a microbe that is 
“eating” New York's garbage. 

Another biotechnology firm 
is showing how ancient rem- 
edies. can have 20th-century 
applications in the prevention 
and cure of heart diseases. At 
Biopharm UK in Swansea the 
day is spent studying blood- 
sucking leeches. 

Dr Roy Sawyer, the manag- 
ing director, says: “Leeches 
'are very important beings 
because they .secrete sub- 
stances like anti-coagulants 
when they sack the blood of 
animals.” • 

But biotechnology ; is only 
.the latest twist in the tale of 
.the development of the new 
economic culture in Wales. 
The old cliches of the singing 
Welsh miners on their way to 
play rugby after a week down 
the pit are gone. 

Perhaps they should be 
replaced, by the new Welsh 
white-coated workers brush- 
- ing up on their Japanese. - 


President and poet 
pull in tourists 


It was a strange meeting of 
minds. The abstemious peanut 
farmer from the - American 
D&pSoiffc paying homagefo 
a wild Welsh wizard who 
kilted himself by drinking too 
much whisky in a sleazy New 
Yorkdive. 

Earlier this year, Jimmy 
Carter, now . retired as the 
world’s most powerful man, 
visited the old shack where his 
contemptuous hero Dylan 
Thomas once raged against 
everyone. 

Mr Carter bad been 
shocked to learur that there 
was no plaque in Poets’ Corner 
at Westminster Abbey to hon- 
our his hero and promptly 
nsed his influence to pvt 
matters right. He won, and 
decided to consolidate Ms 
victory by visiting Laugharae 
in west Wales, a rare and 
special place forever cursed 
and blessed with the memory 
of Thomas, genius and drank. 

It was the time when a bomb 
had gone off in London and 
Americans, at peace with New 
York's 1,700 murders a year, 
were staying away from Brit- 
ain. Mr Carter visited Wales, 
paid his homage, fished and 
relaxed and bad the holiday of 
bis life. The highlight was a 
wine-flowing evening in an inn 
in Tregaron, a town so remote 
that it most have reminded 
t him of his Georgia home. 

The Wales Tourist Board 
most have been lighting bon- 
fires. His visit was the seal of 
approval no advertising 
agency could ever hope to 
emulate. 

Next month, Welsh tourism 
is expected, to receive a more 
measured and sombre boost 
with the publication of the 
findings of the Commons 


The success of joint 
participation between the pub- 
lic and private sectors was 
demonstrated" fast year when 
£ZS million from the WTB 
attracted a final spending of 
more titan £16 million. 


Projects under way include 
the first motorway Travel 
Lodge, to be bail! alongside 
the M4 at Sara Park in Mid 
Glamorgan. The 40-room 
complex, where charges will 
be per room rather than by 
occupant, will be aimed at 
families as much as business 
users. 


The WTB has earmarked 
£100,000 in the coming year to 
promote -festivals, sad, ding 
the Cardiff Prams, the Royal 
National Eisteddfod and the 
International Eisteddfod at 
LbuigoUen. 

A whole range of rand, 
cultural and sporting activities 
has been brought together

examining tbe- industry. In 
Wales, perhaps more than in 
any ocher pan of the UK, the 
sighs of relief tint tourism is 
at last being seen as a bona 
fide industry will be heartfelt. 


The Principality's reliance 
on tourism and leisure is 
particularly ' pronounced. 
Holidaymakers now bring in 
more than £600 million a year 
with a further £300 million 
estimated to be generated by 
day visitors. Measured as a 
percentage of the gross domes- 
tic product, tourism is second 
only to manufacturing- prorid- 
ing an estimated 90,0# full- 
time jobs and one of the 
highest per capita incomes 
from tourism in Europe. 


The opening of Cardiff’s 
182-room Holiday Inn in July 
consolidated the city as a top 
conference _ centre to .match 
Britain's other leading venues.

WALES/2 


Can TV rescue 
the language? 


y*™ a 6° whe " 

Alan Ladd said: "Mae dyn yn 
gorfod gwneud be’ mae dyn vn 
gorfbd gwneud." and ihe pay- 
pie of Wales laughed. 

For Alan Ladd, with the 
High Sierra behind him. was 
speaking a language no Indian 
ever encountered. 

Those words, which mean. 
"A man's goi io do what a 
man's got to do", were the first 
tenuous and nervous steps 
towards saving one of 
Europe's oldest living lan- 
guages with the aid of ad- 
vanced television technology. 

in the bailie to maintain the 
Welsh language’s credibility 
and vitality, its place in every- 
day life was seen as essential 
Yet pumping into every home 
through the all-powerfiil me- 
dium was a steady diet of 
American soap operas, game 
shows and movies. 

The solution offered was 
Sianel Pedwar Cymru, or S4C, 
the Welsh Fourth TV Chan- 
nel. Alan Ladd's Shane, 
dubbed into Welsh, was the 
first Hollywood blockbuster to 
be presented to the Welsh in 
their own langauge. 

The Western hero’s Welsh 
drawl brought howls of protest 
that the channel was present- 
ing an Anglo-centric view of 
life, albeit transposed into the 
Welsh language. 

Such offerings, argued the 
cultural purists, together with 
sports such as wrestling and 
snooker, a Welsh language 
version of the quiz show Mr 
and Mrs, and the renaming of 
the pixie-like Smurfs as the 
Smyrffi did little to reflect 
Welsh cultural life. 

But they brought in the 
viewers. Snooker, orsnweerm 
Welsh, attracted top ratings, 
sitting alongside Dechrau 
Ctinn. Dechrau Canmol, a 
programme of Welsh hymn- 
singing 

The schedule of any tele- 
vision channel is a delicate 
balance between the demands 
of the viewers. the aspirations 
of the programme makers and 
the resources available. 

Combining drama, light 
entertainment, children's pro- 
grammes. sport, news and 
current affairs and schools 
programmes, all having a 
Welsh flavour, with the re- 
scheduled output of the UK 
Channel Four, was a daunting 


task. But by general consensus 
the S4C programmers 
succeeded. 

Many programmes, es- 
pecially the high-quality out- 
put of drama, have been 
received with critical acclaim. 
Awards have been carried off 
at international festivals in 
France, Spain. Britain and the 
United States. 

The Welsh now have 25 
hours a week of peak-time 
television in their own lan- 
guage. _ Although the most 
expensive station per cap ha in 
the world, with programmes 
watched by just 50,000 view- 
ers costing up to £5 million, 
the new channel has provided 
a launching pad towards 
financial success for several 
independent producers. 

The Supened cartoon series, 
which originated in a studio in 
Cardiff's Dockland and was 
first shown on S4C, is now 
shown in 70 countries. The 
cartoons of the cuddly crime- 
fighter were also the first to be 
shown on the Disney cable 
channel in the United Slates 
and not produced in-house. 

From the same stable Wil 
Cwac Cwac, the adventure of 
a dude based on a series of 
children's books first written 
in the 1920s and set in rural 
Wales, achieved a rare double 
in being bought by both the 


Schedules often 
a delicate balance 


United States and the Soviet 
Union in successive months. 

Whether the station will 
halt the continuing decline in 
the number of Wdsh speakers 
is uncertain. 

Every census this century 
has recorded the steady fell 
from 50 per cent in 1901 to 
just 19 per cent in 1981. 

Language campaigners 
point optimistically to a first- 
time increase between two 
censuses in the number of 
children speaking Welsh as a 
result of the increased invest- 
ment in teaching the language 
m schools. 

But it may yet be that 
television, the medium that 
once threatened to push the 
language towards oblivion, 
finally helps to get over the 
message. 



Target: Thousands of jobs 


Next to tourism and agri- 
culture. the task of attracting 
industry to the vast tracts of 
rural Wales presents a difficult 
challenge. 

No one wants to destroy the 
rich green beauty of the region 
with a network of motorway 
links and dual carriageways 
but prospective employers 
need to know that raw materi- 
als can be brought in and 
products sent out test. 

The agency responsible for 
boosting the region. Mid 
Wales Develoment. has to 
present the area as a viable 
alternative. It has adopted an 
imaginative approach to 
publicizing the benefits avail- 
able to outweigh the under- 
lying problems. Promotional 
ventures include tours by First 
Division soccer clubs, pop 
-concerts and a countryside 
festivaL 

Beneath the surface 
showmanship there have been 
some solid achievements for 
the organization which ac- 
counts fora 40 percent area of 
Wales but only 8 per cent of 
the population. The area has 
had a tragic history of de- 
population, but in recent years 
the population has been rising, 
while the number of jobs has 
fallen. 

Dr Iain Skewis, who arrived 
to head Mid Wales Develop- 
ment after a spell with the 
Highlands and Islands 
Development Board, is a jo- 
vial boss, but he sounds less 
than optimistic at times. 

“We need about 2.400 jobs 
a year between now and 1990 


to provide work for the rising 
population and improve the 
attractiveness of the area to 
young people," he said. “Last 
year we almost made the 
target, but it was not easy and 
it is going to be very difficult 
in the future. 

“Employers in hi-tech in- 
dustries in particular think 
immediately of the South-East 
and the Home Counties for 
factory space. To them it 
means good road and rail 
links, easy access to the ports.” 

Mid Wales Development 
has a struggle convincing 


pier picture for the transport- 
ing of goods and Dr Skewis is 
keen to talk about the London 
to Aberystwyth rail link. 

“Our major handicap is the 
distance away from the South- 
East, or at (east our distance as 
perceived by the South-East 
because it's not really very 
far,” added Dr Skewis. 

Mid Wales would like the 
M54 extended into Wershpooi 
and South Ceredigion to be 
linked with the M4 in the 
south and the A44. 

The agency’s big success, 
however, is in lettings — 1985- 


Loss of assisted area status has been a 
serious blow to the Mid- Wales region 


those employers that a region 
without a motorway, in the 
middle of a rural area, is a 
good beL 

The loss of Assisted Area 
Status in most of the region 
was a blow but it has been 
offset to some extent by the 
introduction of the Mid Wales 
Development Grant, provide 
ing grants of up to 15 per cent 
for growth projects. 

Dr Skewis is keen to stress 
the importance of the small 
loans fund which has attracted 
interest from about 20 firms. 

But the area must battle 
with its next-door neighbour 
Ihe West Midlands, which has 
been elevated to Intermediate 
Area, for the prize of the 
potential employer. 

The agency, however, never 
shirks from putting money 
into schemes to paint a hap- 


86 was a record year with 1 14 
lettings and a total of 342,000 
square feet, more than 50 per 
cent higher than the previous 
year and the best figure since 
1982-83. 

The agency counts as one of 
its biggest successes persuad- 
ing the fashion textile com- 
pany Laura Ashley to stay in 
the area. The company has 
chosen Newtown's Mochdre 
Estate for its new £5 million 
textile and wallpaper factory, 
which is set to create around 
400 jobs. 

The agency beat off com- 
petition* from Holland by 
putting together a package that 
Ashley could not refuse. 

But Dr Skewis admits: “Al- 
though Mid Wales is a pleas- 
ant location, the lifestyle is 
just an extra and business is 
business wherever you are. It 


would have been very difficult 
for us to project ourselves as a 
credible manufacturing area if 
we had lost a company which 
was bom and grew here.” 

Laura Ashley is by far the 
biggest single employer in the 
region with 1,300 employees. 
The company is still expand- 
ing. Last year the turnover was 
£131.5 million and the pre- 
vious year £96.4 million. Al- 
most SO of the group's 240 
shops worldwide are in the 
United States. 

“Our major expansion mar- 
ket is now the USA." said 
Chris Owen, the administra- 
tion director. “We have every 
confidence we are still 
performing well after the 
tragic death of Laura Ashley. 
The design team are very 
strong” 

Mr Owen emphasized the 
link with Mid Wales Develop- 
ment and its assistance in the 
new factory project 

Mid Wales' overall policy is 
to concentrate development 
on three areas: Aberystwyth, 
Central Powys and Newtown. 

At Aberystwyth the harbour 
is being redeveloped as a focus 
for the revitalization of the 
town as a whole and for 
tourism. Construction is going 
ahead on the Cefn Linn sci- 
ence and technology park, a 
venture in close co-operation 
with the academics of the 
town’s University College, 
which formerly owned the 
site. 

The Central Powys centres 
for development include 
Llandrindod Wells. Rbyader 
and Builth Wells.

Tarmac tentacles 
extend to the west 


As Wales moves away from 
traditional heavy industries, 
the value of the M4 corridor 
and A470 to the Heads of the 
Valleys is being seen as a 
major selling point in attract- 
ing more work into the 
Principality. 

Ammunition for the sales 
pitch Is the feet that since May 
1979, 22 miles of new or 
improved motorway and 84 
miles of trank road have been 
provided in Wales as a whole. 

The artillery is silenced 
again when radio newsreaders 
announce that the Severn 
Bridge is again dogged by 
long tailbacks and Wales mice 
more becomes a far distant 
land. Bnt in ID years* time, if 
everything goes according to 
plan, a £150 million second 
crossing will be open. From 
junction 23 on the M4 in. 
Wales drivers will be able to 
cross into England rejoining 
the M4 or taking a new link to 
the M5 sooth of Bristol. 

Ian KelsaU, director of the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry in Wales, believes that 
the Government announce- 
ment that a second crossing 
will be built has given indus- 
trialists outside Wales the 
chance to plan now for the 
1990s and decide to build 
factories in the Principality. 

He points out that 13 mil- 
lion vehicles cross the Severn 
Bridge every year, 60 per cent 
on business. 

When the Newport East 


MP, Roy Hughes, criticized a 
CB1 competition which came 
up with the name Croeso 
Bridge for the second crossing, 
Mr Keisall hit hack maintain- 
ing it had a serious purpose. 
Entries from as far away as 
California meant the message 
was being spread that the era 
of frequent and extensive traf- 
fic jams between England and 
Wales would soon be at an 
end. 

But as the infrastructure in 
the south continues to im- 
prove, the tentacle of tarmac 
uncoiling throogb Wales is 
also reaching across the north. 

The A55, which skirts the 
shore between Abergele and 
Cohvyn Bay, and other bypass 
projects are welding North 
Wales to the English motor- 
way system. Work will shortLy 
begin on the Conway crossing 
which will be Britain's first 
immersed tube tunnel. 

It all means that Manches- 
ter Airport and the industrial 
base of north-west England 
are becoming more accessible 
from North Wales. 

That accessibility is crucial 
in an area braised by the large 
job losses at British Steel's 
Shotton site and closure of 
Comtauld's Greenfield plant. 
A spread of foreign alter- 
natives from Japan, Finland, 
Sweden and the United States 
are already settling in North 
Wales as the first steps are 
taken towards reshaping the 
area's economy. 




My company 
really is limited! 

It might be limited by too-high overhead costs. 

By lack of space into which to expand. 

By a scarcity of skilled workers, caused by high property values. 

Why not open up a second unit in Wales? 

You can start from a greenfield site or a brand -new factory, 
close to your main transport system, whether rt be road, rail, sea or air. 

You can take advantage of made-to-measure financial packages. 

You can dip into our pool of skilled labour 
(as have 12Japanese companies, with excellent results). 

You can even co-opt our help in identifying new customers. 

And you can revel in the great value of property in Wales and enjoy 
the stunning scenery of 3 National Parks and 4 areas of ‘Outstanding 
Natural Beauty.’ There are no limits to what you can achieve in Wales.

Archaeology 

Dark Age Europort found 

By Norman Hanunond, Archaeology Correspondent 


British archaeologists working in northern France - 
have found what ihey believe w be the lost port of 
Quentovic. a Dark Age contemporary of eariy 
Southampton on the coast of Normandy. 
Founded in the seventh century. Quentovic was a 
main gateway lo the Coiuweni for British 
pilgrims. _ ... 

Historical records show that Uie port flourished 
for two centuries, with a sacking by the Vikings in 
842 AD being followed by refonificanon by 
Charles ihc Bald in 865 AD.. It bad a mint in 
Carotingian times, but by the end of the temh ' 
centurv had dropped out of documentary 
mention. . . ' • 

The site that has been found lies tn the Cancbe 
I valley 20 miles south of Boulogne, inland from 
1 the present seaside resort of Baples and west of 
Montreuil. Mr Keith Maude of the Canche 
; Valley Survey, reports in Popular Archaeology 
I bow it was discovered after nearly a century of 
speculation by French archaeologists. 

Remains of ihe relevant period were turned up 
I by drainage work, and M P. Leman, of the French 
Archaeological Service, a co-director of the 


survey, suggested that Quenrovic Jay near the 
village of Viscmarest The name may derive from 
Wic-en-marais. or the me in the marshes: i vie is a 
familiar element in place names for commercial 
towns of this period, as in Ipswich. Eorforwic 
(York). Hamwic (Southampton) and Aldwych in 
London. 

Field survey over the pest two years dem- 
onstrated that settlement of the Merovingian and 
Carolinian periods existed south of Visemarest, 
and excavations this year have located pits of tire 
seventh and eighth centuries. Large blocks of 
masonry have been brought to the surface by 
ploughing. ., 

Among the artefacts found .have been pottery 
vessels, loom weights and spindle wboris, which 
arc being housed in a new museum uiErapJes. Mr 
Maude points out that remains need to be 
identified over a large area, at least SO hectares 
(1 25 acres) and perhaps up to-250 hectares in size, 
in order to substantiate the hypothesis that this 
site is the lost. "Dark -.Age- Europort" of 
Quentovic. and not just a -small village -of the 
same period. ...

Surprise at morning heart attacks 


SIR VINCENT LLOYD-JONES 


By Pearce Wright Science Editor 


A casual comment at a scien- 
tific conference led to research 
showing that heart attacks occnr 
most mien in (be morning, 
around nine o’clock. Mach to 
their surprise, doctors hare 
found increasing evidence 
confirming that not only do 
heart attacks happen most fre- 
quently eariy in the day. bat the 
same "applied to strokes and 
boats of aoglna- 

Scientists hope the discovery 
will lead to a better understand- 
ing of why they happen at all. 

The studies which revealed 
this eariy morning syndrome 
began two years ago. An account 
of the subsequent research and 
its conclusions, which is now 
supported by 1$ different re- 
ports. is reported In Science, the 
fonrnal of the American Associ- 
ation for the Advancement of 
Science. 

Yet it ail began by chance 
when Dr James Mailer, of the 
Harvard Medical School in the 
United States, presented Ihe 
results of a trial with two well- 
known drops (propranolol and 
hvalanmidane) for reducing die 
damage in patients who stmire 
a heart attack- 


A chance observation by a 
member of the audience was that 
Dr Kloller'ls results seem to 
show that heart attacks were 
more likely in winter than in 
summer. Subsequently, tire Har- 
vard team analysed its data in 
more detail It coaid not 
substantiate seasonal dif- 
ferences. 

But the scientists found some- 
thing peculiar about the timing 
of heart attacks. They tended to 
occur around 9.00am. Other 
research teams found similar 
evidence. 

The Harvard team was con- 
cerned to case there was some 
special factor about the 847 
patients in its trial. 

When tire researchers exam- 
ined the records of 2.000 other 
individuals, who bad had* at- 
rarks hot had been ruled ineli- 
gible for the trial they found the 
same trend. 

To be certain, the team then 
looked at (be details of the blood 
tests done on the patients. They 
wanted 10 know whether pa- 
tienis onl) reported (heir heart 
attack when tbe woke up. 

What they examined was the 


concentration of a fnocfaenacaL 
called creatra kinase, (bar is 
released imo the Mood stream 
four hours after an attack 
befiios. 

Measurements showed that 
the 9 -00am theory still held up. 
Dr MaBer consulted other 
specialists. Dr Thomas Robert- 
son and Dr John Marie, of the 
National Institute of Neurologi- 
cal and CwnoBteiie Dis- 
orders add • Stroke- They 
examined 1.200 computer 
records of strokes and the time 
of onset. 

Tbe information showed an 
even . stronger fink with the 
morning attack than .that of 
heart attacks. 

The scientists believe this b 
an exciting finding because it 
may provide dues to oader- 
staodhig why chronic bean dis- 
ease suddenly converts to ad . 
acute condition. 

A possible e xp l anati on of 
whut ihe> are seeking is the 
subject uf the- science report 
tomorrow.

Bleakly

Urban alienation seems to be 
the mood of the moment Shift 
. . Work (BBC2) pitched the 
tufcssage at its Weakest bat 
most beguiling. It was a one- 
hour film which Starred Mau- 
reen Upman as a mhimh 
driver who picks np an arche- 
typical fat, wealthy Arab at 
Heathrow Airport; her pas- 
senger dies on the hard shoul- 
der of the M4, and what 
should have been a good Cue 
pins a big tip becomes a 
nightmare as the distraught 
driver tries to find a resting 
place for the corpse in the 
heartless city. 

The hospital refuses him, 
the mortnary is shot, the 
poSpe are inthnidating and I 
undertaker needs a death 
certificate- Between each re- 
jection the- woman tries to 
telephone her children, whose 
boy baby-sitter keeps the tele- 
phone line occupied by calling 
his own mother. As the cold, 
wet, luridly-lit night grows 
longer, the driver becomes 
fond of her dead passenger and 
refuses a friend's suggestion 
that the. corpse be qnietty 
dumped in a deserted street 

At last in a bitter meta- 
phorical comment on society’s 
capacity for caring, they carry 
|Ve corpse into the ' private 
wing of a West End hospital, 
tack his well-stuffed wallet 
under his arm and abandon 
him with success and dear 
consciences. 

Shift Work was written by 
Lesley Bruce and directed by 
Angela Pope, to whom the true 
story was first told. Pope has a 
distinguished background in 
rarftg-style social documenta- 
ries, and gave this film a laid- 
back, naturalistic feel which 
was appropriate to its setting 
but which could have engaged 
the eye more positivdy.

The F air Maid of the 
West 

Swan, Stratford 

Not much has been seen of 
Thomas Heywood’s Fair Maid on 
the British stage for a century or 
two, but she returns to the Swan, in 
the last of this' year’s productions, 
as if she had never gone west at alL 

On comes Joe Melia as a quaking 
Jftwy FChorus, only to be howled 
off and then pelted with fruit when 
he comes back as a helineted 
prologue to Troifus and Cressida. 
By inis time, even the paying 
customers are rooting for “Bess 
Bridges**, and life company capitu- 
lates and agrees to play the story of 
the Plymouth barmaid, even 
though the members may have to 
make some of it up as they go 
along. 

Such is the cunning opening of 
Trevor Nunn’s production, which 
at once re-creates jhe atmosphere 
of Elizabethan jingoism which 
Bess's story needs as a plant needs 
water,- and also lets, you know in 
advance that this is no ' perfor- 
mance for the Heywood purist (if 
such a parson exists). 

The Fair Maid is like the career 
of Brecht's Pirate Jenny gone right. 
Beginning as the toast of the Hoe 
drinking set, she falls for the gallant 
young Spencer, who flees into exile 


after a tavern brawl. Migrating to - 
Cornwall, she makes her fortune, ■ 
only to learn: of bis supposed death 
at the- . bands of the ’ Spanish; 
■whereupon- she buys a ship,. has it 
painted Mack, and sets sail with a 
crew of enslaved admirers to wreak 
revenge on her lover’s supposed 
killers. There ensues a long string' 
of ad ven lures which turn on Bess 
just 'mrsung~Spencer on .the high 
seas, and in the court of the King of 
Fez, before a last-minute reunion 
which saves both from beheading 
and -.extends the fame of Britain 
from Spain to Morocco. 

• .The story, in other words, begins 
in the best vein of Elizabethan 
. realism and then takes a plunge 
into extravaganza. This ' process 
begins in Part I and proceeds to the 
reckless limit in Part 11. Mr Nunn 
has conflated, both plays into a 
three-hour text, and drawn on 
every .available device from John 
Napier’s environmental staging, 
music, planted audience response 
and' crafty casting to draw the 
whole thing into an entertainment . 
hopefully as consistent as an out-" 
ofeseason pantomime. - ' 

There is no problem -whatever 
with the opening scenes, which 
show Bess running -a tight tavern 
and standing no nonsense from her 
clientele. And . these scenes do 
prepare the way for the vi 
. they enable her to recruit bar 



si 

Butter-fingered hilarity: Pete Postieth waite (second left) with Paul Greenwood and Imelda Staunton 


as 


crew. First she shames a treach- 
erous captain into becoming her 
devoted ally. Then she rounds on 
another braggart. Roughman, and 
waylays him in mal&attire, proving 
his cowardice so effectively that 


she turns him into a real man. 

Pete Postieih waite’s perfor- 
mance as this oaf is one of the 
delights of the show. It makes a 
fascinating sequel -to -his other 
braggart, Bobadill. in the Swan 


production of Every Man in His 
Humour. This time he is a butter- 
fingers. making his first entry by 
throwing an apple into the air and 
foiling to catch it on his sword; but 
once he has discovered his courage 


no feat of legerdemain is beyond 
him. 

The opening scenes are diversi- 
fied with Elizabethan dance and 
pastiche folk-song (by Sean 
Davey); there is also the sight of 
Simon Russell Beale trailing round 
the company.' book in hand, read- 
ing pul urgent dialogue in tones of 
undisguised panic. A great gear- 
change takes place when the ship' 
puts to sea. with a prolonged 
chorus and the transformation of 
the stage into a deck with a sail 
surmounted by a top-gallery crow's 
.nest. 

It is not only the stage that is 
transformed The characters too. 
keel-bauled along by the plot, lose 
their original outlines and shrivel 
into heroic cyphers. At this point, 
the director moves into the fore- 
ground, engineering moments of 
applied absurdity, going to town on 
the comedy and thrills of physical 
action, and building delicate at- 
mospheric bridges with back- 
ground music. 

The main shock conics when we 
arrive at the court of Mullisheg. 
where the hitherto unexplained 
presence of Joe Melia, hanging 
around on the sidelines, is at last 
revealed when he lumbers on in a 
Lurcx bedspread to do what he can 
to salvage the King of Fez. It is a 
task to daunt the greatest down; 
and it taxes Melia’s resources of 
Abemazer-like guile and stand-up 
comedy to the limit. Thanks to 
him, the final episodes just about 
survive. Imelda Staunton, a brisk, 
diminutive figure with a voice that 
ranges from fiery’ command to 
elegiac song, earns Bess the ap- 
plause of more than the patriotic 
plants. Among the busily doubling 
company I must also single out 
Paul Greenwood and Trevor 
Gordon.

‘Just sparkle!’ — , — — 

plays Yum-Yum in his Tiewproduction of The Mikado which : . 
opens at the Coliseum on Saturday* but she may well do a great 
deal more than that: interview by Richard Morrison 

A night at the operetta 


Alan Walter 


At first. admits Lesley Garrett, 
she was less than rapturous 
about being. Yum-Yum in 
Jonathan Miller’s new English 
National Opera production of 
The. Mikado. “I slightly re- 
sented having to pl^y this 
empty-headed person, and I 
couldn’t fathom out how to do 
iL Jonathan wanted the three 
little maids to be totally 
carefree and sparkly — as they 
were in old musicals. It’s very 
difficult for a modern woman 
just to glitter and stop think- 
ing. I would ask a .question, 
and Jonathan, would say *Oh, 
stop being fntdligeni! Just 
sparkler.” 

Added to that, when she 
first read through W 5. 
Gilbert's venerable libretto, 
she did not exactly foil about 
laughing. “I thought: oh com. 
com." She had problems, too, 
finding the right speaking 
voice. "Coming from Don- 
caster. it's not the easiest thing 
to do an edit !930s-BBC 
acceuw” 

But the young soprano who 
once learnt circus tricks bn a 
tightrope simply to play 
Esmerelda in The Bartered 
Bride is used to working 
grittily to get things right. "I 
soon realized 1 was just a cog 
in a style, and how funny it 
would be to maintain, that 
style.” That style, suggested to 
all the cast by Miller, was of 
Marx Brothers’ films. “I 
watched A Night at the 
Opera ", she says, "and the 
juve leads in that are Yum- 
Yum and Nanld-Poo to a T.” 

But for that elusive accent, 
she turned to another' Im- 
mortal Celluloid Moment- "1 . 
now have what I call my Brief 
Encounter fix. Every other day 
I take a peep at Celia Johnson 


in salient scenes.” Miss Gar-: 
rett obliges with an imitation 
of Miss Johnson saying "let's 
be perfectly happy". Her eye- 
lids flutter demurely, her 
mane of Mack curls shakes 
' with giggles. It sounds good; 
and ft looks even better.- 

At least, t suggest, Sullivan's 
music is relatively straight- 
forward. “Hra, I suppose so", 
she says, not entirely con- 
vinced. "On the other hand 
everyone knows it so weD. 
You feel that if you drop a 
spangle the whole audience is 
going to rise and shout ‘Hey; 
that’s not what happens 
here'” . 

Those who watch Lesley - 
Garrett swapping comic busi- 
ness with Enc Idle (a Ko-Ko 
from Monty Python rather 
than operetta) in the coming 
weeks, or who remember her 
scintillating Valendenne in" 
The Merry Widow or smoul- 
dering Zerfina in Don Gio- 
vanni at Glyndeboume this 
summer, would perhaps find 
it difficult to believe that less 
than four years ago this viva- 
cious lady wont through a: 
trauma which would finish 
most singers. ■ 

Her career had made a 
promising start: in her last 
days at the Royal Academy of 
Music she starred in a still- 
remembered production of 
Cha brier’s L'Etoile ; won the 
Kathleen Ferrier Compe- 
tition. and was accepted for 
the National Opera Studio. 
After a year there, she gradu- 
ated effortlessly to the pro-, 
fessional companies.. She was 
singing Susanna in Opera 
North's The Marriage of

it took nearly a year for

haps, she lost her voice 
completely. "There was:noth-.

isolation: it is the first place 
where emotion tells, or sick-

her a long time to regain her

through a watershed, when 
they lose their innocence and

ASMF/Marriner 

Festival Hall 

In some ways Sir Neville 
Marriner’s interpretation of .4 
Child of Our Time is revela- 
tory. Few would have thought 
it possible for Tippett’s grainy, 
stubborn orchestral textures to 
be rendered so pellucid; his 
awkward choral counterpoints 
to be projected with such light, 
spruce ease; or his madrigalian 
cross-rhythms to be so pre- 
cisely pointed. 

That only really confirms 
three extremely uncontrover- 
sial opinions. The Academy of 





St Martin- in-the-Fields instils 
its remarfcaMe standards of 
technical discipline into what- 
ever line-up it is currently 
fielding; its Chorus is its 
worthy partner In every re- 
spect (there were some very 
sophisticated choral manner- 
isms to enjoy, and thrilling 
tone took and Maniner is — in 
his unfliissy and low-profile 
way — one of . the best- 
organized conductors around. 

But one does not hire a 
surgeon, however eminent, to 
find a man's soul Nor will a 
superb musical technician 
touch the heart of this oratorio 
unless he shows he is open to 
its tensions, ambiguities, even 


LSO/Hickox

For thpse who go to concerts 
to listen to the singer rather 
than the song, this one had 
plenty to offer. For the rest of 
us, however, the inclusion of 
Rossini's Stabat Mater in the 
London Symphony Chorus's 
opening gambit of the season, 
given with the help of their 
sister orchestra, was cause for 
discomfort 

It is not that the work is 
devoid of imagination. In- 
deed. were its spectacular 
coloratura arias.fts strokes of 
drama and its spirited in- 
ventiveness translated to a 
stage setting with a kinetic 
libretto, the music would work 
very wclL But it is hard to 
equate this text with Rossini’s 
idiom. One searches for an 
attendant spirituality, the sort 


its contradictions. It was in- 
teresting, for example, to hear, 
the second spiritual turned 
into a tour deforce of feather- 
light playing and singing, but 
unfortunately the words hap- 
pen to be "Nobody knows the 
trouble I see”. That emotional ; 
blandness was evident too' 
often. 

The' soloists conveyed more 
of the score’s indignation and 
pity. In ibis. respect Thomas 
Allen’s measured portentous- 
ness was ideal as was Sarah 
Walker’s intelligently - col- 
oured delivery. Philip Lang- 
ridge was not helped by the 
jolly lilt of “I have no money 
for my . bread". Margaret 


which the languages of Haydn, 
Beethoven and even Beriioz 
readily admitted. And frankly 
it is not there, not in the 
awesome fanfares which in- 
troduce the final aria nor even 
in tiie Germanic counter- 
points of the opening and 
' dosing choruses. 

. Thus one had to look to the 
performance itself for satisfac- 
tion, and whai a large measure 
of that the solo soprano. 
Rosalind Plowright, gave us 
.with her aria “Inflammaius et 
accensus". The combination 
of intensity, power and purity 
which she showed in this most 
technically challenging piece 
was impressive indeed; we all 
knew she is a great singer, but 
it is still thrilling to have it 
proved again before one’s very 
ears. 

The rest of the team of 
soloists were no mere support- 
ing cast either. Kathleen 


Marshall's tone blossomed aft. 
ter a distinctly, shaky approach 
. ip "Steal away”,--: - 

Earlier, the violinists Chris- 
topher Warren-Green and 
Jonathan Rees and the cellist 
Timothy Hugh bad formed a 
fluent concertino group in a 
persuasive performance of- 
Tippen’s Fantasia Cancer- - 
-tame on a Theme of Corelli. In 
delineating these rich string 
sonorities, Maniner seemed 
much more in his element: a 
little, reserved, at first, but 
allowing 1 an expansive lyri- 
cism to develop during what 
must. I suppose, now be called 
the Akenfleid theme. 

Richard Morrison 


Kuhlmann. the mezzo, gar- 
nished the Chvatina, “Fac ut 
portem Christi mortem" with 
a rare combination of richness 
and brilliance, and made just 
about the ideal partner for 
Plowright in their duel "Quis 
esi homo” while John 
Tomlinson; the bass, strode 
resonantly through "Pro peo- 
catis”. The tenor. David 
RendalL was nursing a throat 
affliction, but sounded only 
marginally off-colour and still 
managed a stunning top note 
in “Cujusanimam”. 

He also triumphed over his 
adversity in Kodaty’s unargii- 
ably spiritual Psalmus Huh- 
garicus, sung in English. But 
in both works, although the 
choral singing was good and 
firm, Richard Hickox’s direc- 
tion looked decidely over- 
zealous. and the results erred 
on the heavy side.

Runners and riders in Booker stakes Unifil is 

a target, Nation’s debt to 

Chirac the party leader 


By Philip Howard 
Literary Editor 

The six finalists in the 
Booker Prize, the annual com- 
petition that treats novels kike 
racehorses and creative writ- 
ers like jockeys, were an- 
nounced yesterday. 

They demonstrate the 
worldwide spread of EngBsh 
letters and the strength of 
creative writing from the old 
Empire, by consisting of two 
Canadians, a Hong Kong Chi- 
nese, a Japanese, and two 
Englishmen, one the Angry 
Old Man of the English novel, 
Kingsley Amis. 

The favourite is Kingsley 
Amis, for long service and for 
entertaining the generations 
for more than 30 years since 
Lucky Jim. 

Backing hooks is a mug’s 
game, hot many will be dis- 
appointed not to see Julian 
Barnes's Staring at the Son, 
Janice Elliott's Dr Gruber's 
Daughter, and P D James’s A 
Taste for Death on the short 
list the latter to prove that 
crime and the other genres 
also serve literature. 

The judges spent more than 
four horns reducing their list 
first from 24 books, asd finally 
from 14, the last leg with 
considerable passion. 

‘An entertaining 
novel will win’ 

Nobody can complain that 
any of the final six is not a 
splendid novel. 

The judges are Anthony 
Thwaite, the poet and critic; 
Edna Healey, biographer and 
wife of Denis; Isabel Qrogly 
and Gillian Reynolds, first 
division literary critics; and 
Bernice Rubens, the novelist 
who won the Booker Prize in 
1970, its second year. 

The winner of the £15,000 
prize will be announced at a 
dinner at the Guildhall on 
October 22. 

This year's award will be 
made with hype and 
Ladbrokes, oratory and tele- 
vision. embarrassing tele- 
vision comperes and the 
London literati looking shifty 
in dinner jackets. 

British Council libraries 
throughout the world are set to 
launch displays of the 
finalists. 

But behind the razzle-dazzle 
and rubbish, a good and 
entertaining novel is certain to 
win this year.

a target, 
Chirac 
tells UN 

From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

M Jacques Chirac, the 
Prime Minister of France, told 
the United Nations General 
Assembly yesterday that the 
UN force m southern Leba- 
non bad become the target of 
deliberate ' attacks leaving 
open -the possibility that the 
troops, including French sol- 
diers, might be forced to 
retrench. 

Since the 1.400 strong 
French contingent had already 
been redeployed over the 
weekend to a less vulnerable 
position around Unifirs head- 
quarters in Naqura, M Chi- 
rac's statement aroused spec- 
ulation • that 1 the’ French- 
soldiers would adopt an ex - 1 
tremdy passive . role andi 
throw into doubt whatever 
effectiveness the befcagured 
UN peacekeeping operation 
might have still managed to 
retain; 

* Describing the situation as 
intolerable, he said the UN 
.force was no longer caught in 
the sporadic dashes between 
the enemies it was supposed to 
keep apart, but had become 
the target of “methodically 
prepared” assaults. 

He delivered his address 
after the UN security coundL 
because of an American 
abstention, had failed on 
Tuesday to adopt a unani- 
mous position on enhanring 
the force’s security. The 
, United States objected to the 
resolution, which it said put 
too much of the blame on 
Unifil' s state of crisis on 
Israel's refusal to pullout of 
Lebanon completely. 

I . Diplomats said that it was 
absolutely essential for the 
council to be united if the 
force was to have any chance j 
of surviving. 

M Chirac also spoke of I 
terrorism in a wider context, 
calling it a war that knew no 
borders or seldom, had a face. 
Paris has been recently hit by a 
wave of terrorist attacks, and 
the Prime Minister con- 
demned the complicity of 
stales that were willing to dose 
their eyes to terrorist activities 
or did not hesitate to 
encourage terrorism

In an emotional scene yes- 
terday. the Liberal Assembly 
came back to Mr Cyril Smith 
after an estrangement of three 
years. 

The Assembly might have 
been under ibe impression 
that it was the other way 
about But Mr Smith, the MP 
for Rochdale of near-mytmra) 
girth, knows that the Assem- 
bly is an insignificant body 
compared with his. He and the 
Assembly fell out at Harrogate 
three years ago. He stormed 
out of the town in mia? 
Assembly, reputedly shaking 
several buildings on his way to 
the station. Later he vowed 
that be would not stand for 
Parliament again. The most 
famous bearer of Britain s 
most common name was sulk- 
ing in his Big Top- 

No one now remembers 
what the quarrel was about, 

: ■ c II w m TUa 


vulgar assumption was that it 
was because he and Mr David 
SteeL. bis leader, loathed one 
another. Yesterday Mr Smith, 
as was to be expected of a 
former mayor of Rochdale 
who has a mastery of the 
municipal-pomposo style, he 
menacingly observed: “l have 
read with great interest that I 
have had a three-year feud 
with David Steel.” Then, for 
like many great Rochdale 
Corporation orators he in- 
j eludes touches of the demotic 
among his stately periods, he 
thundered: “ What rubbish!” 

“David has been leader of 
the Liberal Party for ten years, 
and 1. state here and now, 
publidy, and for the record, 
that I consider him to be the 
best party leader in Great 
Britain today. The party and 
the' country owe him a great 
debt,” (huge applause). 

What then was the reason 
for the Missing Three Years? 
Later inquiries, carried out 
among senior Liberals by this 
column^ produced conflicting 
explanations. Wasn’t it some- 
thing to do wnh Cyril making 
a critical speech about David 
af a fringe meeting and no- 
body taking any notice? No, 
no, it was because someone on 
the platform forgot to call him 


in that Harrogate defenw 
debate. But Cyril has never 
known anything about 
fence? Since when has that 
been a bar to people getting 
called in defence debates? 
Well, maybe he was upset 
because someone sat on the 
Grade Fields records that he 
had brought all, the way & 
Harrogate - possibly hrnisdf. | 

Ostensibly, yesterday’s 
speech was his report t® 
something called the Labour 
Unit, an organisation, of 
which he is leader, which 
studies how Liberals can wfa 
votes from Labour, as Mr 
Smith did in Rochdale, fan 
everyone knew il was much 
more than that 

A huge audience gathered iq. 
watch as he moved slowty 
towards the frail-looking pisi- 
form. Within minutes, he whs 
proving again that he is one of 
the few people left in politics 


constitute any kind of a show; 
At moments, for example, he 
departed from Rochdale 
Ciceronian to adopt a sub. 
Biblical mode, 

“They judge not what is said 
but rather the source from 
which it comes." he saidofihc. 
House of Commons - another 
assembly of which he has been 
a stern critic. “I am sorry that 
my domestic circumstances 
do not allow me to long tany 
amongst you.” he said at 
another stage. 

Later.in a reference to the 
fare he had in store for the 
Labour Party, he quoted a 
character in Dad’s Army who, 
displaying a bayonet, would 
remark: “They do not like it 
up ’em." Elaborating on this 
quotation. Mr Smith assured 
the nation: “They don’t, but 
they're going to get il" The 
prim ranks of Liberalism were 
enraptured at this glimpse ofa 
more virile politics. 

Finally, he said he was going 
to stand for Parliament again. 
(Ecstatic applause. Mr Steel 
strangely pale.) The return 
Mr Smith had shown that j 
party was bigger than one of 
its members, or as he might 
see it any of his memtm 
were bigger than the party.

Payments deficit 

reaches record 
as imports leap 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


' Viv; "j&viA

pp-wsisa 


Britain’s balance of pay- 
ments slumped to a record 
deficit last month as imports 
surged and exports fell . 
sharply. The trade deficit was 
£1,486 million, nearly three 
times the July deficit of £588 
million. 

The current account was in 
deficit by £886 million, also 
the worst ever, compared with 
a surplus of £12 million in 
July. The deficit on manufac- 
tures was £1,089 million, also 
a record. 

Officials at the Department 
of Trade and Industry de- 
scribe^ the figures as “dis- 
appointing.” A Treasury 
spokesman said the figures 
were highly erratic and there 
was no presumption of a shift 
into deficit next year. 

In the first eight months of 
this year the current account 
was in surplus by just £68 
million. At the time of the 
Budget the Chancellor, Mr 
Nigel Lawson, forecast a £3.5 
billion surplus this year. 

Most private . economic 
forecasts are for near-balance 
this year and a current account 


deficit of £2 billion or more 
next year. 

Mr. Roy Hattersley, Lab- 
our’s Chancellor-designate, 
said the August trade figures 
were “a disaster*’. 

He added: “Moire than any- 
thing, they reflect this Gov-^ 
eroraent's total abandonment 
of British manufacturing 
industry.” 

Exports were down by £519 
million to £5,470 million last 
month. There was a £120 


Comment 


25 


million decline in oil exports 
and a £205 million foil in 
exports of the erratic items of 
trade, mainly aircraft and 
'diamonds. The volume of 
exports, excluding erratics, fell 
by 4.8 per cent. 

Imports rose by £379 mil- 
lion to £6,956 million. 

Officials said that the rise in 
imports was across the board 
— the increase in volume, 
excluding erratics, was 5.9 per 
cent. . 

The trade surplus on oil fed 
*by £71 million to £211 mfl- 
1 lion, while the non-oil deficit 


widened by £828 million lo 
£1,697 million. 

Import and export trends 
are difficult to assess. Import 
volumes are rising strongly — 
in the latest three months they 
were 8.5 percent higher than a 
year earlier. Export volume, 
up 4 per cent on a year earlier, 
was healthy but less buoyant 

British exporters appear to 
be doing well in Western 
Europe, in line with the 
pound's lower leveL In the 
latest three months exports 
there rose by 1.5 per cent 

Bui exports to North Amer- 
ica fell by 3.5 per cent and to 
other developed countries, 
including Japan, by 2 per cent 
Exports to the developing 
countries dropped by a worry- 



ing^ pea- cenu 


surplus on invisibles is 
assumed to be £600 million a 
month, as in July. In the latest 
three months the invisibles 
surplus was estimated at £1.9 
billion, against a visible trade 
deficit of£2.7 billion. 

The overall current account 
was in deficit by £0.8 billion in 
the June-August period. 


Europe’s 
policies 
dismay US 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

Britain must start to tackle 
high unemployment more 
comprehensively and enact a 
significant tax reform pro- 
gramme if its economy is. to 
prosper, a Reagan Admin- 
istration official said 
yesterday. 

The official, speaking before 
the meeting of the World Bank 
and the international Mone- 
tary Fund this week, also 
criticized West Germany for 
refusing to stimulate its econ- 
omy through lower interest 
rates. **. 

The interview gave a hint of 
the discussions that will take 
place in Washington on Fri- 
day when the Group of Five 
industrialized nations meet to 
discuss the exchange rate of 
the dollar and other issues. 

US officials are dismayed 
by the apparent lack of ur- 
gency with which Britain and 
other European nations are 
dealing with unemployment 

The individual policies of 
the industrialized nations will 
be scrutinized this week in an 
attempt to implement the 
economic surveillance proce- 
dures which were agreed at the 
Tokyo economic summit. 

“If you are sensing a higher 
temperature in the rhetoric, it 
is because we are finally 
getting to the basic issues in 
this process. No one ever said 
it would be easy, but you have 
to identify what must be done 
before you can do it 
“Unless there is successful 
policy coordination — leading 
to greater growth in Japan and 
West Germany — which will 
allow further exchange rate 
reductions to take place, there 
will either be a forced reduc- 
tion in rates or a deep reces- 
sion in the United States and 
elsewhere.’’ the official said. 

European ministers have 
described the aggressive tone 
of the US as counter-produc- 
tive in the common goal to 
stabilize exchange rates and. 
halt sliding growth. 

A West German official said 
that if the US did not mod- 
erate its tone, the fragile 
agreement achieved In New 
York and later at the Tokyo 
summit would begin to 
unravel.

Poor trade figures 
batter the pound 





^ i I I 1 I 1 I 1 I t 

Sep 1 Oct^Nov'Dto Jan Fab Mar'Apr’ May Jun i Jut Aug'sep 


By Our Economics Correspondent 


The Bank of England again 
supported the pound yes- 
terday after it came under 
pressure from the publication 
of the poor August trade 
figures. 

The pound dosed weak, 
despite the Bank's action, 
which dealers described as 
modest. 

The sterling index fell by 0.3 
to 69.4 as the pound lost 35 
points to $1.4460. and fell 
more than a pfennig to 
DM2.9603. 

It was another volatile day 
in the foreign exchange mar- 
kets. with the dollar moving in 
response to conflicting state- 
ments from the United States. 

Initially the dollar was weak 
because of comments by Mr 
Malcolm Baldrige. the US 
Secretary of Commerce, who 
was quoted on a wire service 
as saying that the dollar 
needed to go down further. 
Later these reported com- 
ments were retracted. 

In the afternoon the. dollar 
improved after Mr Paul 
Volckcr. chairman of the US 
Federal Reserve Board, said 


that the dollar's current level 
was appropriate. 

Towards the close m Lon- 
don the dollar faced some 
selling when Dr Henry Kauf- 
man. of Salomon Brothers, 
predicted that there would be 
one or possibly two cuts in the 
US discount rate in the com- 
.ing months. 

The dollar ended virtually 
unchanged at DM2.0470 and 
at Yen 1 54.55. 

Market conditions re- 
mained nervous ahead of 
today’s meeting of the 
Bundesbank Council in Bonn 
and the Washington meeting 
of the Group of Five in 
Washington on Friday. 

Most dealers do not expect a 
cut in rates by the Bundesbank 
today, although they. contin- 
ued- to hedge their bets 
yesteiday. 

In the absence of Bun- 
desbank action; or initiatives 
from the Group of Five, the 
pound and the dollar could 
come under heavy selling 
pressure next week, dealers 
said. 


Grand Met 
in talks to 
sell Liggett 

By Richard Lander 

Grand Metropolitan, the 
brewing, hotels and leisure 
group, has confirmed the re- 
port in The Times yesterday 
that it is negotiating the sale of 
its US cigarette subsidiary, 
Liggett Group. 

The company declined to 
comment further on any as- 
pect of the deal beyond saying 
that “the negotiations are 
unlikely to be concluded for 
several weeks” It would not 
name the party with whom it 
was talking. 

If the talks are successful. 
Grand Met should receive 
about £100 million for Liggett, 
a company it has been trying 
to sell for more than two years. 

Plans to dispose of Liggett 
to a consortium of manage- 
ment employees and outside 
investors for $325 million 
(then £250 million), fell 
through because of a fierce 
price war in the “generic” 
(nnbranded) cigarrelte area 
with the Brown & Williamson 
subsidiaiy of BAT. 

The worries in the minds of 
the bankers, who would have 
financed the leveraged buy- 
out proved well-founded. 
Price discounting on generic 
cigarettes intensified and 
Uggett’s operating profit 
crashed to $6.4 million in the 
1985 financial year from $67.4 
million in 1984. 

Grand Met has reported 
that profits improved in the 
first nine months of the 
present year in spite of re- 
duced cigarette sales. 

Liggett which also markets 
cigarettes under the Eve, 
Chesterfield and Lark brands, 
is the rump of the company 
which Grand Met acquired for 
£225 million in 1980. 


Rolls orders 

Rolls-Royce, Britain’s state- 
owned aero engine maker, has 
won orders worth more than 
£60 million for its new RB-2 1 1 
engines from two inter- 
national airlines. They have 
been ordered by Quantas of 
Australia for a new extended 
upper-deck 747-300 airliner 
and by Cathay Pacific of Hong 
Kong for a new 747 freighter. 


Japan offers Mexico $lbn loans 


Tokyo (Reuter) — Japan is 
ready to provide $r billion in 
loans to Mexico as part of an 
international effort to help it 
overcome a huge external 
debt, the Japanese Finance 
Ministry said yesterday. 

'The international package; 
worked out by the Inter- 
national Monetary Fund and 
Mexico, will provide $12 bil- 
lion to help Mexico meet 


funding needs until the end of 
1987. 

A ministry spokesman said 
that the Japanese Export- 
Import Bank loans would be 
used to build an oil pipeline to 
the Pacific coast and a steel 
plant, and to finance a plan to 
help exports. 

The Mexican Finance Min- 
ister, Senor Gustavo Pet- 


ricioli, who. arrived in Tokyo 
on Saturday, told reporters 
after meeting the Japanese 
Finance Minister, Mr Kiichi 
Miyazawa, that only the de- 
tails of the loans needed to be 
worked out. 

Negotiations fora 56 billion 
loan from international 
commercial banks, which are 
also Involved in the loan 
package, are also taking place. 


Government attacked ‘for 
commercializing aid policy 9 


By Teresa Poole, Business Correspondent 


The Government is accused 
of showing a “cynical dis- 
regard” for the long-term in- 
terests of poor countries in a 
report, published yesterday, 
which rolls for major changes 
in Britain’s aid policy towards 
the Third World. 

Such is the “thorough 
confusion” in Whitehall aid 
Westminster over bask policy 
questions that a new White 

Paper on aid is needed, said Dr 
Charles Elliott, chairman of 
the Independent Group on 
British Aid. 

He added: “It is time the 
Government produced a coher- 
ent, consistent, sensible state- 
ment of what it is trying to do.” 

The IGBA study attacks die 
commercialization of British 
aid which has increasingly 
meant aid money is tied to the 

purchase of British goods or to 

the promotion of British con- 
tracts overseas. 


It recommends the abolition 
of the Aid and Trade Pro- 
vision, whereby aid is ear- 
marked to support a British 
contract, ami the soft loan 
facility, which provides sub- 
sidized finance for deals 
benefiting British companies. 

About three-quarters of 
Britain’s bilateral aid is tied to 
the purchase of United 
dom goods and services whit 
leads to an undue emphasis on 
projects with a high import 
demand and which are rarely 
of benefit to die poor, the 
IGBA says. 

Instead, bilateral aid should 
be concentrated on projects 
that will have a direct effect in 
raising the living standards of 
the poorest people in the 
receiving conn try. ' 

In contrast, the Trade Min- 
ister, Mr Alan Clark, is known 

to be keen that British in- 
dustry should enjoy the poten- 


tial benefits of Britain's aid 
programme. 

In particular, die IGBA 
attacks the Westland heli- 
copter package, funded by £65 
million of aid money, as being 
of dubious developmental 
value. “By trying, to bully 
India into accepting an aid- 
trade package mainly de- 
signed to keep Westland afloat 
and independent for a few 
mane months, we sought to 
impose on her a project which 
had unfavourable military 
overtones and had nothing to . 
do with development in the 
real sense," the report says. 

Britain is also criticized for 
not responding adequately to 
the African famine. With the 
exception of £11 minion to- 
wards the cost Of the aircraft 
for deliveiy of food in Ethio- 
pia, money for famine relief in 
Africa has come from switch- 
ing funds within the existing 
aid budget- 


New man clinches 
deal for Schroders 

By Rodney Lord, Economics Editor 


Schroder Wagg, the Lon- 
don-based merchant bank, has 
won an important advisory 
role in the privatization of the 
Mass Rapid Transit System in 
Singapore. 

it is the first such deal 
negotiated by the recently- 
appointed Schroder director 
Mr Gerry Grimstone. who last 
month left his post at the 
Treasury co-ordinating the 
British Government’s 
privatization programme. 

The deal is a “first” in 
another sense — the Singapore 
Government has decided not 
to 'privatize the transport . 
authority's capital assets but 
only the operating company 
which is to run them. 

The physical assets will 
remain in government owner- 
ship. This avoids the problem 
of trying to sell an enterprise 


encumbered with large debts 
incurred in constructing the 
network. 

The technique could well 
act as a blueprint for sub- 
sequent privatizations in Brit- 
ain and elsewhere. One of the 
problems encountered in 
planning the privatization of 
mature industries is their 
historical albatross of debt. 

The contract to manage the 
sale has been awarded to a 
Singapore company SIMBL in 
association with Schroder 
Wagg. SIMBL is 49 per cent 
owned by Schroders. 

The Singapore Government 
is strongly attracted to lhe

Brent Chemicals makes 
£12.1m rights issue 

By Carol Ferguson 

Brent Chemicals Inter- used in water-based applica- 


naiional yesterday -announced 
that it is raising £111 million 
by way ofa rights issue on a 1- 
for-4 basis at I20p. 

It also said it was paying 
DM5.5 million (£1.8 million) 
for Joachim Dyes Lackfabrik 
GmbH (JDL), a speciality 
chemicals company based in 
West Germany. 

The rights issue is intended 
to strengthen Brent Chem- 
icals' balance sheet to enable it 
lo pursue further substantial 
aquisition opportunities. The 
company will have no net debt 
and about £4 million cash 
after completion of the rights 
issue and the JDL purchase. 

JDL, located in Hanover, 
supplies a range of coatings 


lions in the packaging in- 
dustry. Its annual turnover in 
1985 was DM9 million and its 
profit before tax was 
DM900,000. 

Another acquisition could 
be announced soon. The com- 
pany hopes to complete nego- 
tiations by the end of October 
for the acquisition of a French 
company which supplies coal- 
ings to the packaging Industry. 

The statement announcing 
the rights issue also revealed 
that interim profit before lax 
jumped 23 per cent to £3.2 
million in the six months to 
June 30. on turnover up 8 per 
cent to £28 million. The 
dividend was increased by 18 
per cent to Ip net per share. 


TSB offer 
sets 

flotation 

record 

By Richard Thomson 

Ranking Correspondent 

The Trustee Savings Bank 
share offer was hailed os the 
most popular flotation the 
stock market has seen when 
the doors closed on new 
applications at 10.01am 
yesterday. 

First estimates indicated 
that the offer attracted about 5 
million would-be investors — 
twice as many as the British 
Telecom notation. 

Sir John Read, the TSB 
chairman, said that the need 
for a large number of private 
shareholders meant that a 
ballot was almost certain. 
Meetings to decide on alloca- 
tion were already starting last 
night at Lazard Brothers, the 
merchant bank handling the 
issue. 

As the counting of the latest 
applications was started by 
7,000 specially recruited tem- 
porary workers , it looked as 
though the issue was about 
five times oversubscribed. 

The large numbers of ap- 
plicants means that both 
balloting and scaling down 
applications will be used in the 
allocation of shares. And be- 
cause the TSB is keen to have 
a large number of private 
shareholders there is likely to 
be a ballot among the 
institutional investors for the 
first lime. 

The TSB is likely to acquire 
considerably more than 2 
million shareholders but it 
cannot give shares to all 
applicants because of the diffi- 
culty and expense of 
maintaining too large a share 
register. 

The allocation policy will be 
announced on Monday pro- 
vided that the applications 
have been counted by then. 
Allocation letters will be sent 
out on October 7. Stock 
market dealing in the shares 
starts the following day and 
most experts anticipate an 
immediate premium of more 
than 50p for partly paid share. 

Last-minute applications 
were restrained in many bank 
offices but the TSB office in 
Lombard Street in the City 
estimated that up to 25.000 
people passed through its 
doors between 7am and 10am. 

Peat Marwick Mitchell, the 
accountants policing multiple 
applications, said that hun- 
dreds more people breaking 
lhe rules had been discovered 
since the weekend. They could 
face criminal prosecution and 
fines of up to £10.000. 

Inevitably, many applica- 
tions have been inaccurately 
completed and will not qual- 
ify. But Mr Bill Payne of 
Lloyds Bank, thcchief'receiv- 
ing bank for the issue, said 
that the proportion of such 
forms was lower than for 
almost any issue he could 
remember.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Bad trade figures knock gilts 
and leave equities dull 


[COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Fiat shows the way to 
tomorrow’s markets 


By Michael Clark and Carol Leonard 


Disastrous trade figures 
knocked the gill-edged market 
for six yesterday, sent the 
pound tumbling still father 
and prompted the Bank of 
England to intervene again in 
an attempt to halt the slide. 

Gills ended the day near ■ 
their low point with longer 
rf sl0C * ts down by about 
£1.50 and shons off by as 
much as £% in brisk trade. 

Mr Stephen Lewis, the gilts 
expert at Phillips & Drew, the 
broker, said; “The problem 
last week was an absence of

packaging and construction 

group, spurted 15p to 63p 
on the news that Mr David 

Newton, a stockbroker, is 
joining tbe board and miring a 
near-16 per cent stake. Mr 
Newton, aged 35 , currently with 
Raphael Zorn, the broker, 
was tbe founding partner of 
Kent, East, Newton, now 
part of Margetts & 

Addenbrooke. Last year 
he reversed Dean Park Hotels 
into Martin Black, a loss- 
making “shell” and then sold 
it to Qneens Moat Houses. 

buying, but this lime round 
there has been genuine selling 
in the cash market” 

Sterling lost 35 points 
against the dollar — at $ 1 .4460 
— and went down against the 
trade-weighted basket ofEuro- 
pcan cunencies, reaching a 
low of 69.3. before closing at 
69.4 — after 69.7 the previous 
day. 

The Bank stepped in, selling 
marks and buying sterling at 
lunchtime, within minutes of 
the trade Figures being 
announced. 

“As long as the Bank is 
prepared to step in and rescue 
the pound, an increase in 
interest rates can be averted,” 
was one foreign exchange 


dealer's prediction. .“She's not 
going to do both at once.” 

The FT 30 share index 
started the day down 1.8 and 
headed steadily lower, closing 
at 1.264.5, a fell of 7.4 points. 

The broader-based FT-SE 
100 index finished the day 6.6 
points tower at 1,603.4. 

The main topic of conversa- 
tion in the bars and res- 
taurants around Throgmorton 
Street was the £1.5 billion 
Trustee Strings Bank flota- 
tion. which is estimated to 
have tied up more than £13 
billion of investors* money. 
Estimates of the level of 
oversubscription for the offer 
run from five to 18 tunes. 

Mr Chris EUerton, a leading 
banking analyst from Rowe & 
Pitman, the broker, com- 
mented: “I shouldn't think it 
has taken much money out of 
the stock market, but it has 
probably taken a lot out of the 
building societies.” 

Over in the grey market. 
Cleveland Securities, a li- 
censed dealer, was yesterday 
quoting a middle price on the 
50p partly-paid shares of 92p, 
while another licensed dealer. 
Prior Harwin, was offering 
90p. 

A spokesman for Prior said: 
“We’re doing good two-way 
trade at all levels.” 

The rest of the banking 
sector was mixed with Bank of 
Scotland gaining lOp to 437p 
and Royal Bank firming a

couple of pence to 342p, while 
National Westminster eased 
3p to 544p and Barclays. 
Lloyds and Midland all 
dipped 2p to 487p, 442p and 
567p respectively. 

Leaders were of little in- 
terest with most ending the 
day a few pence lower, where 
changed. Glaxo was the big- 
gest loser, down 13p at 9S2p. 
IC1 eased 5p to i.092p. Royal 
Insurance came back 5p to 
8 1 7p, Beecham lost 4p to 401 p 
and Boots slid 3p to 2 18p. The 
only blue chips to gain ground 
were Grand Met, up 3p at 
41 lp, and Vickers, a penny 
firmer at 406 p. 

Shares in Petranol, the oil 
and gas producer with most of 
its interests in the United 
States, slumped lOp to 30p to 
match their all-time low after 
the group announced a one- 
for-one rights issue at 25p a 
share to raise £6 million. The 
City was bonified to learn that 
some £5 million of the new 
money will be used to dear the 
debts of Apollo, a private 
energy company operating in 
Texas and New Mexico, 
which Petranol is buying for 
2.6 million shares and

Like many companies of its 
ilk. Petranol has suffered 
heavily from the slump in 
energy prices over the past 
year. It was forced to re- 
schedule its £1 1 million bank 
debt earlier this year and its 
interim net profits slumped to 
£6,148 from £131 million in 
1985. 

Investors, who have seen 
their shares plummet from 
305p in 1984. also had take- 
over hopes dashed in July 
when Inoco, a Dallas-based 
energy group, withdrew a 
contested £25 million all- 
paper bid after a Takeover 
Panel investigation. The Panel 
ruled that Inoco had acted in 
concert with the former 
Petranol chairman, Mr Give 
Smith, who had accepted its 
terms for his 25 per cent stake. 

Other oil stocks held up well 
with BP gaining 5p to 675p, 
Shell putting on 7p to 91 5p, 
Lasmo up 3p at !I3p and 
Enterprise a penny harder at 
132p. 

Stores, always victims in 
times of threatened interest 
rate increases, eased across the 
board. Storehouse shed 8p to 
3l5p. Woohvorth lost Sp to 
635jx Stylo also dipped 5p to 
205p. 

Barratt Developments 
climbed 14p to 160p, after* 
touching 166p at one time, on 
beiter-than-expecied results. 
Several building sector an- 
alysts were so impressed that 
they have now raised their 
prom forecasts for the com-

gland. Some traders began to 
wonder whether after all a rise 
in interest rates coaid be 
beaded off. Bnt the trade 
figures pot paid to any such 
hope. Rates turned firmer 
again and day-to-day money 
showed firmer rates on the 
back of tbe heavier shortage. 
Later, however, gloomy views 
on tbe outlook diverted funds 
from the periods

pany for next year. Wood 
Mackenzie, the broker, has 
stepped up its forecast for 
1987 from £30 million io £35 
million, with £42 million ex- 
pected for the following year. 

Mr Angus Thaure, a build- 
ing analyst at County Securi- 
ties, is looking for £40 million 
in 1987 and £50 million in 
1988, while watchers at 
Charterhouse Tilney, the 
Liverpool broker, arc even 
more ambitious, expecting 
profits of £45 million next 
year.

• Is Ferranti creeping 
back into favour? The 
electronics and computer 
systems group has been a 
weak market since poor 
animal results in July and 
waning takeover talk, bnt 
some analysts think the 
shares have fallen far 
enough. Mr Basil de Ferranti, 
the chair man, was in BD

day visit to the Chicago offices 
of its American offshoot, 
while fdlow-sector company 
Rothmans, up at 1 Sip at one 
point, ended the day with a 4p 
gain at 146p after a badly- 
handled split buying order, 
which had dealers chasing 
stock. 

United Scientific Holdings, 
the Alvis armoured vehicle 
manufacturer, lost some of its 
recent speculative froth, fall- 
ing 8p to i 60p. There has been 
persistent talk in recent weeks 
that Pilkington Bros has been 
casting an envious eye over 
USH and was considering an 
offer of 2 1 Op a share. That 
would value the entire group 
at £1 13 million. Now there is 
growing speculation that USH 
is about to sell-off part of its 
business to GFCN. the en- 
gineering giant 
Last year was a difficult year 
for USH which saw pretax 
profits slide from £12 million 
to £10.14 million. The group 
says it has tackled short-term 
difficulties and will has traded 
profitably. The final dividend 
is expected to be maintained. 
Pilkington finished 4p lower 
at 43 Ip. 

Profit-taking after a recent 
strong run left Wellcome I lp 
down at 199p. Last week the 
group was given the go-ahead 
m an unprecedented move by 
the US drug authorities to 
administer anti-Aids drug on 
compassionate grounds. The 
new drug had behaved well 
during clinical trials, but ex- 
perts said that it was still early 
days. 

Analysts do not expect sales 
of the drug to have much 
impact on Welcome's perfor- 
mance in the short term. 


The sale of Libya’s 1 5 per cent stake in 
Flat ends a remarkable decade of 
partnership between the Agnelli fam- 
ily and Colonel Gadaffi. It also points 
to a challenging future for London as 
the centre for international equity 
trading once the proposed integrated 
Stock Exchange is created. 

The Libyans put up some £250 
million in 1976 when Fiat's car plants 
were in deep trouble. They kept with 
the diversified giant of Italian in- 
dustry through the thinnest times, 
investing more on the way. They 
stayed to see a full recovery — profits 
doubled to more than £800 million in 
the first half of this year. 

After a decade, the roles were 
reversed. Libya, like many Arab oil 
producers, needed the money. Its 
politically useful shareholding had 
become an embarrassment (leading 
Fiat briefly to be blacklisted for 
Pentagon contracts). Gianni Agnelli 
had the money, and international 
investors the confidence to invest in 
Fiat. The Libyans cashed £2.2 billion, 
making a deservedly large profit. 

The deal itself is a remarkable 
portent of things to come. The Agnelli 
family bought the entire 1 5 percent It 
kept 7.5 per cent of the ordinary 
shares at a cost of about £750 million, 
building a controlling 40 per cent 
voting stake. The remaining 7.5 per 
cent plus a clutch of non-voting 
securities with a total market value of 
£1.5 billion were quickly sold to a 
consortium of Deutsche Bank and the 


Italian Mediobanca, which kept £350 
million worth for Italians. 

Deutsche kept a similar amount 
within its network and, within a few 
hours on Tuesday night, spread the 
rest round a traditional — though 
impressive — eurobond syndicate. 

The good news is that Deutsche 
Bank Capital Markets in London 
forms the centre of the international 
sales operation. The bad news is that 
no British firm was among the 1 2 lead 
managers. They included the three top 
German banks, the three lop Swiss, 
Shearson Lehman and Salomon for 
the US, Paribas for France. Daiwa for 
Japan and the Arab Banking Corpora- 
tion. The leading British eurobond 
firms, of which Mercury’ is the most 
notable, stayed oul Perhaps the 
advent of Big Bang next month left 
them unwilling to commit the £70 
million entry fee. 

This is just the sort of block trade 
which the new-style London securities 
market is being set up to handle. 
TTianks to Fiat's profits, which kepi its 
shares up.the dealers should make 
almost 4 per cent, about £60 million. 
This deal is unusually large. But it 
shows that only the big boys can play. 

Significantly, no stock exchange is 
really involved in the whole opera- 
tion. No wonder the London Stock 
Exchange agreed to merge with the 
international securities dealers. The 
British will have some work to do 
before they can play in the same 
league as their new partners. 


The trade apocalypse 


The Four Horsemen of the Apoca- 
lypse — balance of payments disaster, 
a tumbling pound, higher interest 
rates and accelerating inflation — rode 
roughshod through London yes- 
terday. The August trade figures, 
easily tbe worst ever, provided the 
lash. The Bank of England, once 
more, had to dig into reserves to help 
the pound ouL 

It is demonstrably the case that 
monthly trade figures are erratic. It is 
no less true that Britain’s balance of 
payments is tilting alarmingly on the 
wrong side. Tbe cumulative current 
account surplus for the first eight 
months was just £68 million, in 
comparison with a surplus of £3.6 
billion for the whole of last year. 

The Chancellor's Budget-time fore- 
cast of a £3.5 billion 1986 surplus has 
been quietly forgotten. The Treasury 
says that there is no “presumption" of 
a shift into deficit next year. Erratic or 
not, there was a manufacturing trade . 
deficit of more than £1 billion last 
month. 

Into the turmoil of the arena rides 
the Fifth Horseman, Stephen Lewis of 
stockbroker Phillips & Drew. The 
broker's economists see a new danger 
ahead, that of the economy overheat- 
ing. The pause in the recovery is now 
history, they say; by the end of the 
year the economy will be growing too 
fast for its own good. 

And the result is: “Too high pay, 
excessive credit expansion, balance of 


payments weakness and rising govern- 
ment borrowing: circumstances un- 
likely to endear sterling to investors 
who, in any event, face increasing 
political risk on UK investments." 

Oul of all this, Phillips & Drew sees 
higher base rates coming. The gilt 
market has already caught on to this 
idea. Yesterday, as has now become 
almost customary, the falls extended 
to more than a point in the longer- 
dated stocks. 

As so often, it is all a question of 
how the jigsaw slots together. In the 
latest three months, despite the Au- 
gust fall, export volume was up by 3 
per cent. Import volume, over the 
same period, rose by 5 per cent. 
Extrapolating these figures produces 
the sort of balance of payments 
nightmare forecast by the National 
Institute, with the current account in 
deficit by nearly £6 billion 

But if stronger growth is coming 
through, and the recent sharp import 
rise mainly reflects restocking for the 
upturn, the picture is less worrying. 
Exporters should benefit from the 
pound's low level against the Euro- 
pean currencies. Exports and imports 
could cross over, at least in terms of 
volume growth. 

If not, and yesterday’s trade figures 
prove to be a forerunner of even 
greater disasters ahead, the omens are 
not good. The balance of payments 
constraint would be back with a 
vengeance.

a vowed intent of increasing its vices boost profits from that

vices sector. • . ■ will be extremely useful in 


maintaining a dear stock mar- 
ket rating for LET. And it will 
lake the overheads of the 
financial services operations 
off LETS balance sheet 

LET is to keep its share- 
holding in Kellock to between 
4S-perceni and 49.9 per cenL 
Burlington, the insurance 
broking and personal financial 
services company, now part of

owned by Kellock once the 
agreed offer goes through, 
expanding Kellock’s activities 
in the process, Kellock will 
receive an injection of £7 
million. • 

Mr John Beckwith, die 
chairman of LET. will become 
chairman of KellacL He stud ■ 
yesterday; “I like putting busi- 
nesses in little boxes. We need 
to import the best people into . 
our financial services and let 
them run their own show. It is 
easier to do this if they are 
separate from LET” 

A new chief executive for 
Kellock has been appointed 
but his name is being kept 
quiet until the circular to 
shareholders goes out in about 
three weeks. 

Burlington has. made a 
name for itself in selling 
insurance to building con- 
tractors. Other spin-offs from 
LET'S property development 
activities are seen as poten- 
tially profitable ventures; As- 
set financing, tax shelters and 
fund-raising are all services 
which LET feds h can sell to 
its joint-venture partners. But 
as Mr Beckwith points out. it 
will be easier to do ' this 
through Kellock than if they 
were still part of LET. 

Kellock may buy a stake in 
an investment agency as' pan 
of its expansion 

‘ The move to create a sepa- 
rate financial services com- 
pany Coincides with another 
separation from LET. London 
& Metropolitan, the joint - 
development company .owned 
by LET and Balfour Beatty, is 
expected to make its stock 
market debut in November in 
a £50 million flotation. 

This week L & M an- 
nounced the appointment of 
Mr Norman Ireland, the fi- 
nance director of BTR, as its 
new non-exfecutive chairman 
in the run-up to going- public. 

LET will reduce its share- 
holding to- 20 per cent, as will 
Balfour Beatty, once the com- 
pany comes to the market

ENTERPRISING INVESTORS 
KNOW REAL CAPITAL GROWTH 
CAN COME FROM 
THE UNUKEUEST SOURCES. 


There are many specialist investment funds 
in the UK. But few have performed as consis- 
tently well as The Fleming Enterprise Investment 
Trust. 

This year alone the assets of Fleming Enter- 
prise rose by an impressive 35%. 

The portfolio consists of UK companies 
and divides into three main categories. Exciting 
smaller unquoted companies, the more enterpris- 
ing quoted companies and companies which are 
"special situations". 

The latter are currently either trading in an 
unfashionable area, recovering from a lean period, 
are under new management or are candidates for 
a takeover 

it's an area that many investors shy away 
from. But then our resourceful management 
team have built up an enviable reputation for 
selecting the most enterprising companies where 
the rewards are high. 

Shares in Fleming Enterprise are currently 
trading at a substantial discount to their net 
asset value. 

Thanks to Flemings' Dividend Reinvestment 
and Savings Scheme investmentcan also be made 
by regular savings from as little as £25 a month or 
with lump sums of £250 or more. 

If you would like to find out more, simply

There are three tax-free investments you 
don’t even have to declare on your tax form. 

They are exempt from UK Income Tax at 
all levels, and Capital Gains Tax. 

Moreover all three of these tax-free in- 
vestments have the added benefit of interest 
ratpg that are guaranteed over a full five years, 
whatever happens to other rates. 

So it’s worth asking yourself whether 
your current investment portfolio is as tax- 
efficient as you would like it to be. 

Do your investments, for example, in- 
clude the current 31st Issue of National 
Savings Certificates? These give you a tax- 
free return of 7-85% pa, guaranteed over a 
full five years. 

The maximum holding has just been 
doubled to £10,000. You may invest up to 
this amount in addition to previous issues 
of Certificates you have already. 

At the same time you can hold tax-free 
Index-linked Certificates. The new4th Issue 
gives you Extra Interest of 4% pa guaranteed 
over a full five years, on top of inflation- 
proofing. 

The maximum holding is £5,000. 

In addition you can subscribe up to £200 
a month to Yearly Plan, which yields fixed 
and tax-free returns at rates notified to you 
annually. The guaranteed rate currently on 
offer is 8T9% pa over five years. 

Monthly payments are simple to make 


by standing order and you can stop when it 
suits you. 

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

Application forms and leaflets giving 
interest rate details for all three products are 
available at post offices. 

The two current Issues of Savings 
Certificates can also be bought through 
your bank. 

Or if you prefer you can fill in the 
coupon or telephone free on 0800 100 100 
(24-hour service) and we will send you a 
comprehensive information pack on tax- 
free National Savings investments, in- 
cluding a copy of our book ‘Investing in 
National Savings? 

Its worth doing now, because the 
longer you delay, the longer you could be 
paying more tax than you need.

THE 




TIMES 


September 25, 1986 


E very one of us lives in a 
local community, 
whether pan of a sprawl- 
ing conurbation, great 
dty. industrial centre, 
market town or village. And every 
jommumiy is unique. Few are 
without problems and challenges. 

The inner cities with their 
heritage of industrial and 
commercial decline and con- 
sequent unemployment, poverty, 
poor infrastructure, racial tension 
and so on, present enormous 
problems with few obvious 
solutions. 

At another extreme are isolated 
rural communities with ageing 
populations — the young having 
felt to make their mark elsewhere 
— with few facilities, sporadic 
services and poor transport 
No community escapes the 
impact of demographic change, of 
major changes in the countty's 
economic base and of changing 
social and cultural values. These 
help form the environment within 
which local government works. 

The range of communities 
points up one of the local 
government's principal 
characteristics. Diversity* of place 
is reflected in diversity of 
organization, approach and style. 
In all communities, however, local 
government takes place within a 
political framework. 

In the UK we have local 
representative democracy. We 
elect councillors who are respon- 
sible for the way our local authori- 
ties work, for setting priorities and 
determining policy. However var- 
ied their environment, the man- 
agers and service providers do 
their job within this framework. 
Healthy communities depend 


on the active co-operation of their 
local government with central 
government agencies, other public 
sector organizations, industry and 
commerce and voluntary 
organizations. The seamless web 
which draws them together re- 
flects the complexity and inter- 
dependence of contemporary 
society. The local authority stands 
at ihe centre of the community's 
governance. It is not always the 
most popular of institutions. 

Treated with suspicion, often 
regarded as bureaucratic, un- 
responsive and conservative, and 
deemed to have narrow horizons, 
local government has taken a 
battering in recent years. But such 
attitudes are far removed from the 
performance of many local coun- 
cils over a century and more. 

Up and down die country there 
are examples of town and county 
halls where local people have used 
their power and influence over the 
years to build and strengthen their 
communities with great 
effectiveness. 

That is history. Today local 
government laces as great a chal- 
lenge as at any time and. at a lime 
of declining financial resources, 
there is a new determination to 
meet the demands of a changing 4 
society by drawing on all the 
resources at the community's 
disposal. 

In no small way, this is due to 
the people who work in it. their 
perception of the job they are 
doing and their style. 

Local government is about 
governing local communities. 
This involves managing and 
providing major services and 
acting as a kind of broker in the 
development of the community. 



Local government, 
often under fire, is 
now fighting bade, 
says Michael Clarke 


Town hall officials are caricatured 
as dull, petty-minded bureaucrats 
more interested in obstruction 
than creativity, in organizational 
self-interest than partnership, and 
who measure sucess by quiet 
survival to the pension. . . 

The reality is quite different. 
There is no shortage of lively and 
imaginative managers. They and 


their staff have, by and large, long 
since recognized that the local 


since recognized that the local 
authority can be successful only if 
it seeks to lap all the resources the 
community has to offer. 

There has been recent debate 
about whether or not there is a 
new breed of manager in the 
private sector. There is no doubt 
that a management revolution is 
occurring in local government A 
recent study carried out by the 


Local Government Training 
Board in conjunction with the 
Audit Commission reveals exam- 
ples of innovative and imagi- 
native management practice of a 
high order. 

The best in local government 
management practice will stand 
comparison with the best in 
management anywhere. Taking 
place within a framework which is 
political, and concerned with the 
delivery of a wide range of services 
to the population, at large, this is 
no mean feat. 

The jobs of management and 
leadership are extremely complex. 
Special challenges arise from the 
political context, as well as from 
community pressures and from 
the fact that the local authority is 
directly confronting major social 
and economic problems. - 

One piece of evidence of the 
management revolution is the 
importance now being attached to 
management development. 
Though there are opportunities for 
direct entry into managerial po- 
sitions, local government mostly 
recruits the people who run its 
services from the professionals it 
already employs. 

This has strengths and weak- 
nesses. It produces people who are 
attuned to the business and ethos 
of their service but it runs the 
danger oflimited horizons and of 
excluding other managerial tal- 
ent* It puts an enormous pre- 
mium on identifying managerial 
potential and developing it. 

Every authority is its own 
employer and thus has a prime 
responsibility for actively 
nuturing and developing skills, 
talent and potential From the 
Local Government Training 


6 It is exciting 
to watch the 
: councillors, 
managers and 
staff working 
to achieve 
their ends * 


Board (local government's own 
voluntary training agency for 20 
years) we endeavour to lead and 


support. 

In doing this we have not 
attempted to impose or recom- 
mend single or simple methods of 
management development We 
have used tire diversity of local 
government to encourage experi- 
ment and variety and to learn 
from success and failure. 

Through the variety, however, 
we have urged one single message 
— die importance of relating the 
development of people as ^man- 
agers to the job being done. Also, 
to the major issues — political 
social, economies organizational — 
confronting managers. 

Among - tire tactics, of training 
and development we have en- 
couraged is the importance of 
learning from others. Local gov- 
ernment management may be 
different — i t certainly has its own 


characteristics and problems — 
but it is not that different. There 
are many examples of contacts 
being used to share experience and 
insight and to draw on them. 


. .Among these are the uk of 
4 business schools and other educa- 
tion or training institutions which 
set out to bring a range ot 
managers together, exchange 
training programmes: use o 
secondments or job exchanges 
between individual authorities 
and other organizations in the 
public, private and voluntary 
sectors. They also encourage the 
development of partnerships and 
co-operative working arrange- 
ments as a means of developing 
people through new and broader 
experience. , . 

Against this background, it is 
not surprising that local govern- 
ment has tapped -into rae 
“excellence” debate. Though far 
removed from its world, the 
American business bestseller In 
Search qf Excellence provides as 
-much stim ulus and challenge for 
us as anyone. Hie holistic view of 
management, tire key role and 
nature of leadership, the im- 
portance of culture and the flex- 
ible organization, closeness to the 
customer: these are all themes for 
local government to take 
seriously. 

■ he last is one which the 

■ * training board is urging 

■ local authorities to take 

■ special note o£ Constant 
criticism of too ' much 

bureaucracy and of unresponsive- 
' ness must have some substance. 
.As local government adjusts to 
reduced spending and to increased 
demands for value for money, it 
has to turn its attention to just 
what is value. 

It is not simply economy or 
even efficiency. Effectiveness and 
tire “human factor” have their

As councils seek to lead tire

they are directly confronting ma-

changes and shaping the nation s

SQUASH RACKETS 


Young pretenders 
closing in on 
Hickox’s crown 

By Colin McQuillan 

For three years Jamie Hickox winning (he IQ85 Champion of 
has built his professional sq uash Champions tide, he has shown a 
career around virtual ownership fine disregard for senior repuia- 
of the Blue Stratos British lions, even startling Hickox by 
under-23 dosed championship, taking a two-game lead in the 
Tomorrow, at Lambs squash last undcr-23 Open 
club in the heart of London, the championship. 

process of winning that highly- "»"«L ,n f ' ldl “' ^SSS£ 

negotiable national title for a S Wh« U S 

record founh umc. EwS STffiJff £ 

His task, against the most English junior (cam in April, he 
formidable field ever assembled went home to Leicestershire and 
from the domestic age group, is persuaded a group of local 


not an easy one. 

A rising standard oF compet- 
itive squash is illustrated by the 
challenge that faces Hickox. 
Second seed this year is Adrian 
Davies, a 20-year-old Welsh- 
man who is already a highly 
experienced member of the 
Manchester Northern national 
league squad. 

Scotland have Mark McLean, 
the Edinburgh graduate who 
ended Jonah Barrington's long 
undefeated domestic record, 
and who overturned Hickox in 
timely fashion in last weekend's 
Knolls Invitation final. More 
significant, though, is the push 
into the under-23 level by 
teenagers representing a 
blossoming new generation of 
players. 

Bob Lincoln, the national 
coach, has taken the under- 1 9 
squad through all levels of 
competition for the past two 
seasons. So familiar did the 
group become in winning in the 
early rounds of senior tour- 
naments. they became known as 
“Lincoln's Raiders'* as they 
coached and cajoled each other 
to a number or surprising vic- 
tories. It proved a fine bund-up 
towards silver medals at the 
junior team world champion- 
ships in Australia earlier this 
year. 

The brighiesi star among 
them is Del Harris, a 17-year- 
old from Essex, who has twice 
won the Drysdale Cup. ihe 
world's most coveted under- 19 
trophy. Many believe him ca- 
pable of developing eventually 
to challenge even Jahangir 
Khan, the seemingly unbeatable 
world champion. Harris was a 
lower order mainstay of the 
Ardleigh Hall side that lost the 
national league title on a 
counlback last season. He plays 
a rare adventurous style of 
squash, filled with cut, spin and 
disguise which one day will 
decorate the game's upper 
reaches. 

Intelligence is a characteristic, 
too. of Robert Graham. 
England’s junior captain and a 
long-time Essex rival of Hams. 
Having secured entry to univer- 
sity for this autumn. Graham 
chose instead to concentrate on 
competitive squash. After .the. 
world championships he stayed 
on in Australia to learn and 
practise at the national institute 
of squash, run by the former 
world champion. Geoff Hudl 

If courage and determination 
are the keys to success, then 18- 
year-old Paul Gregory, from 
Surrey, can rightly claim his 
place near the top of the junior

ship, reached the quarter-finals 
and forced his way bock into the 
team cvcnL 

Such concentrated applica- 
tion. though, has rarely been 
necessary 1 for Hickox’ who 
skilfully juggled his dual British- 
Canadian nationality until se- 
lected last year for the England 
senior squad. His speed, flexibil- 
ity and gifted invention around 
the court have left him un- 
disturbed in domestic junior 
competition for more years than 
he probably cares to count. 

Hickox has become accus- 
tomed lo the role of brilliant 
young stiokeplayer — constantly 
promising to carry his enterpris- 
ing style to victory against the 
very best. Nothing would please 
him more titan a record fourth 
win in this week's evenL 
followed by victory next Janu- 
ary in ihc far tougher British 
under-23 Open, from which 
many senior careers have been 
launched. ~ 

First, though, comes the battle 
of the teenagers. Lincoln’s squad 
have been working for two 
seasons for a collective victory 
of genuine note. Frustrated by- 
Hunt's Australians and Janshcr 
Khan, yet another Pakistani, at 
world under- 1 9 leveL they will 
doubtless be happy to set their 
sights on (he title Hickox has 
come to regard as his own. 


Potential matchwinners 
with plenty to prove 


The swings and nwda boats 
of fortme are perfectly illus- 
trated this week by the contrast- 
ing experiences of two Great 
Britain players. One has found 
his playing career plunging from 
the ieights to the depte in less 
than 12 mo n ths , while the other 
has seen a remarkable renewal 
of his life asan Inter n a tio nal. 

Just under 12 months ago 
Harry Pinner was captaining 
Great Britain to an hononrable 
drawn series against New Zea- 
land. and seemed earmarked as 
die natural captain for this 
year's series against the Anstra- 
lians. By contrast, Hende r s o n 
Gill, the Wigan winger, had 
slipped out of contention 
through a mixture of injury, loss 
ef form ami a wayward 
personality. 

Times have changed dramati- 
cally for Pinner and GilL While 
Pinner, last season's St Helens 
and Great Britain captain, strug- 
gles to recover from deep-seated 
ankle braising and a crisis in 
personal confidence, the un- 
predictable and often electrify- 
ing Gill comes bock into Great 
Britain's training squad after a 
fine game in last wade's match 
between Yorkshire and Lan- 
cashire at Headingtey. GUI pro- 
duced some typical mazy runs 
and showed -that he could also 
ran fast and straight for the line 
by taking a pass from Ellery 
Hanley, his Wigan and Great 
Britain colleague, for a fry. 

In one respect, the careers of 
Pinner and GUI stand at the 
same crossroads, in that both 
have something to prove to 
Maurice Bamfonf, the Great 
Britain coach. Pinner's badly 
braised ankle affected the same 
joint that had earlier been 


RUGBY LEAGUI 
DIARY / 

Keith Macklln // 


operated upon and he has 
missed the opening games of the 
season, watching Sl Helens 
make a dream start with 278 
points in fire games. 

Pinner would not be human if 
his delight at Saints' success 
was not tinged with the worry 
that Alex Morphy might not 
wish to change a winning team 
as long as St Helens keep 
running in the tries. Pinner al 
his best is one of the most 
intelligent and constructive 
{flayers in the game. But H was 
no secret that when Murphy 
arrived at St Helens last season 
he made it crystal dear that 
there was no room for a 
personality cult centred around 
the captain. 

As the Sit Helens dub sec- 
retary. Geoff Sntdiffe. puts it: 
~lt's up to Harry to knuckle 
down to training and prove his 
fitness to both Maurice Bam ford 
and A lex Morphy. He's been 
given clearance by his physio- 
therapist to start loll training.** 

Gill's need is to prove to 
Bamford that be is willing to 
train hard and play Tor the good 
of the squad, rather than seek 
individual glories. When he 
manages, to curb his ebullient, 
likeable bnt unpredictable 
personality, be is a thrilling 
winger and matchwinner. That 
is the type ol player Great 
Britain need if they are to crack 
the rock-hard Australian 
defence.

her first two starts at Lingfieki on her latest start but

Goodwood five weeks ago 
that she stamped herself a top

Such was the confidence of 
her trainer. Robert Arm- 
strong, that he instructed 
Steve Cauthen, who was rid- 


ing the filly for the first time, 
to lay off the pace and 
conserve her blistering speed. 

Cauthen carried out those 
orders to the letter, settling 
Invited Guest in behind the 
other five runners and then 
producing her with a telling 
burst approaching the furlong 
marker. 

Armstrong toyed with the 
idea of sending his star filly to

buL wisely in my view, has 
opted for this group two prize 
nearer to home.

12 when initiating a wvyear- 
old double for John Dunlop at 
Sando«vB Park yesterday. 

The highly-rated Fearless Ac- 
tion was made an odds-on 
chance to keep his unbeaten 
record intact in the Granby 
Stakes but Sheikh Mohammed s 
colt narrowly foiled to hold the 
challenge oF Love The Groom 

Willie Carson was short or 
room on . the Italian -owned 
-.Blushing Groom colt but then 
found a gap on the inside to get 

up on the line and win by a short 

The Arundel trainer’s double 
- was completed when Magic 
Vision slaughtered the oppo- 
sition in the Mitre Maiden 
Fillies’ Stakes to give Dunlop 
his 23rd winner this month. 

Brent Thomson, who has still 
to find a job for next season, 
reminded racegoers of his skills 
when bringing the Sheigar nJJy 
home by five lengths. 

G rev i He Starkey, sacked from 
the ride on Dancing Brave by 
Khaled Abdulla at the weekend, 
was back winning for the owner 
in the Ditton Handicap when 
Badcchai comfortably defied the 
burden of I0st 41b. 

. Tyroltie gained some 
compensation for his wasted 
participation in Doncaster’s 
disastrous Portland Handicap 
when she took the West Ena 
Handicap. Nick Vigors's four- 
year-old was one of the horses 
withdrawn after completing the 
course from a false start at 
Doncaster.. 

Michael Dickinson landed his 
second flat winner when Hand- 
some Sailor scored an emphatic 
victory io the Raffingora Sprint 
at Beverley. 

Dickinson, who got off the 


in the field is Shining Water, 
who beat some useful colts

Stakes. However, she looks 


Sandown. has not surprisingly 
elected to ride Invited Guest 
Simple Taste won a valu- 
able listed race at Phoenix 


and there must be some doubt 
as to whether she is as good as 
her stable companion. Golden 
Braid. 

This Glint Of Gold filly ran 
really well to finish second in 
the Waterford Candelabra and 
now has a pull of 41b for the 
2'h lengths which she was 
beaten at Goodwood. How- 
ever. Invited Guest displayed 
such fine acceleration on that 
occasion that she is napped to 
confirm that form even on 
today's revised terms. 

The other pattern race on 
the card, the Cumberland 
Lodge Stakes, has cut up 
disappointingly but should 
nonetheless provide an in- 
teresting tactical battle be- 
tween Walter Swinburn 
(Kazaroun), GreviUe Starkey 
(Bakharofi) and Willie Carson 
(Highland Chieftain).

Bokhara ff to win the Septem- 
ber Stakes at Kempton earlier 
this month with Highland 
Chieftain back in fifth after 
being hampered. 

Kazaroun will obviously be 
sharper for his seasonal debut 
third behind Dancing Brave at 
Goodwood but Bakharoff has 
the better form and will be 
suited by this slightly longer 
trip and more galloping 
course. 

Starkey and Bakbaroffs 
trainer, Guy Harwood, can 
initiate a double in the 
Swinfey Forest Handicap with 


who was having his first race 
for 15 weeks when dividing 


yesterday’s Sandown winner, 
Flyhome, and Young Jason at 
Salisbury a fortnight ago. 

Harwood saddles Sarfraz 
rather than Ostensible and the 
unbeaten Cap Del Mond in 
the Gordon Carter Slakes but 
my preference is for Henry 
Cecil’s Kudz, who is still 
improving and stays welL 
. Candle In The Wind has 
been running creditably in

No action over 
Sandown slap 


The Jockey Club are to study 
a report of the incident at foe jj 
start of Tuesday's Donong, 
Stakes at Sandown Park. The 
Racecourse Technical Services 
film of the race showed at 
yesterday's inquiry that a suits 
handler gave the Henry Cecil- 
trained winner. Reference 
Point, a slap as foe gates opened. 

Steve Cauthen. foe winning 
jockey, was reminded that his 
instruction to the handler, a 
common occurrence, was never- 
theless contrary to the Rules of 
Racing. 

A report of foe inquiry will be 
made to foe Jockey Club but no 
action is to be taken. The 
stewards* secretary. Bernard 
Hargreaves, said: “It's not being 
sent to foe disciplinary commit- j 
tee. We would just like them to 
look into the whole thing.'*

Only three of the 10 horses' 
declared by John Dunlop will 
actually run today. They are 
Maksab (230 Ascot), Highland 
Chieftain (3.40 Ascot) and For- 
midable Dancer (4. 1 5 Beverley). 
Dunlop has a further seven 
horses, declared which will not 
run. 

A transmission error yes- 
terday morning meant that the 
telex relaying the stable's 
cancellations to Wefoerbys. the 
administrators of racing, cut out 
before foe signature of authority 
.appeared. By the time the fault 
had been noticed, the 10am 
deadline bad been missed. 

. A spokesman for foe Arundel 
stable said: “It happened be- 
cause of ~a power failure and 
Wetberbys would not accept the 
cancellations.” 

Dunlop will be fined by foe 
stewards at both meetings. 'A 
Jockey Club spokesman said: 
“The size of foe fine will be at 
the discretion of the local 
stewards.” 

• David Hswonh warns that 
Floyd will only run at Ascot 
today (4.40) if there is rain to 
ease foe going.

Stumps are drawn on 
a single-minded 
man of Yorkshire 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


A s an accumulator of runs, 
Geoffrey Boycott has to 
rank with the greatest and 
the most dedicated of all 
lime. As a batting tech- 
nician. he has created a method for 
himself which is well nigh bullet- 
proof. As a member of a team, he 
can be shamelessly egotistical, like 
other famous and prolific batsmen 
before him. I write, advisedly, in the 
present tense. 

His record for Yorkshire will 
stand as a monument to his 
enduring ability and insatiable ap- 
petite for making runs. In his 24 
years as a regular member of 
Yorkshire's side, starting in 1963 
when he was a bespectacled, rather 
callow youth of 22. he headed their 
batting averages no fewer than 21 
times, both when they were near the 
top of the championship and 
languishing near the bottom. 

On the other three occasions, he 
was second to John Hampshire, and 
on two of those he himself averaged 
.over 30. Neither Sutcliffe nor 
Hutton, in whose footsteps Boy con 
followed, could equal that, though 
jn Hutton's case his career was 
interrupted by the war. 

To Boycott, batting is an ex- 
tremely serious business. Because it 
has so consumed him, he has found 
it difficult to relate to his fellow 
players. It is beyond his understand- 
ing how when, after nets in the 
morning, he finds few takers to 
return for an afternoon session. 

When he took over the England 
captaincy to Pakistan and New 
Zealand in 1977-78. after Mike 
Brearley had had to return home 
with a broken wrist, he tried, with 
unhappy results, to impose bis own 
single-minded precepts upon his 
team. 

He told me once that he would 
have been better suited by the 


independence of a professional 
golfer's existence: be could have 
practiced on his own, as no doubt he 
would have, from dawn till dusk. 
If. during his retirement, he should 
give the game his full attention, I 
have not the slightest doubt he will 
he a difficult man to beat 

I hate to think, though, that we 
have seen the last of him as a 
batsman. Some would say be was 
bom with a chip on his shoulder, 
but there are lots like that He is a 
good old slick really, whose pres- 
ence in the game has been a 
constant source of inspiration, in- 
dignation and inquisition. He needs 
only 1.374 more runs to reach 
50,000, which only Hobbs. Woolley, 
Hendren, Mead, Grace, Hammond 
and Sutcliffe have ever done before. 

As a milestone man. if not an 
idolater, he would love that, and I 
find it hard to believe that he will 
not be back at the crease next 
summer, tiding a county over, 
showing Yorkshire what they are 
missing and initiating some young 
batsman or other in the an of 
survival. Although 46, Boycott is 
still hard and fit and full of runs. 

The innings of his that is most 
used in evidence, either for or 
against him, is neither one of his 22 
Test hundreds, nor one of his 129 
other first-class hundreds; it is not 
even his 191 against Australia in 
1977, his lOOlh hundred scored 
before his own adoring tribesmen 
after he had come out of his self- 
imposed three-year exile from Test 
cricket, in which, denied the En- 
gland captaincy, he was the human 
lace of resentment. 

No. his innings most frequently 
recalled is the 146 he scored for 
Yorkshire against Surrey in the 
1963 Gillette Cup final. In a sense 
he gave himself away that day by 
showing that when he chose to he 


could play all the strokes, not in a 
style to give the greatest aesthetic 

S leasure but with a clinical ef- 
ciency that was to the bowlers' 
despair. His special glory remains 
the back foot forced past either hand 
of cover point. 

It is a pity if someone so articulate 
and frequently likeable, of Such 
immense statistical achievement, 
who has made enough money out of 
the game never lo want, should feel 
unfulfilled. I fancy he does, but be is 
self-sufficient enough to cope with 
it. 

He had not been about for long 
when he showed what he is made of. 
It was his first tour, to South Africa 
in 1964-65, and England were 
replying to a South African total of 
302 in the find Test match at Port 
Elizabeth. Ted Dexter was just 
getting up steam when Boycott, his 
partner, pushed Peter Pollock to 
mid-on, calling as be did so for a 
single. By the time Boycott changed 
his mind Dexter was so hopelessly 
committed that he ended up beyond ■ 
the wicket at Boycott’s end, though 
not before Boycott had got there 
first 

There was only one thing for 
Boycott to do then. That was to 
make a hundred, which. I need 
hardly say, he did: 117, to be 
precise, in a little matter of seven 
hours. “On this occasion," wrote 
Charles Fortune, “Boycott was the 
sort of guest with whom from time 
to time we all get landed! One who 
says no to every suggestion that 
might brighten the evening, yet 
cannot take his hat and go.” 

Whether he is on the way now, 
time will telL He will be much 
missed if he is. not only in 
Yorkshire. He is a part of the 
tapestry of the game, and there are 
not too many like thaL

Yorkshire calm 
as Boycott era 
comes to a close 


After the turmoil and bitter- 
ness of the last decade, the 
response in Yorkshire yesterday 
to the county committee’s de- 
cision not to renew Geoffrey 
Boycott's contract was sober. 
Realization that a chapter had 
been finally dosed on one of the 
most tor bn lent times in 
Yorkshire's history took prece- 
dence over stay other emotion, 
friend and foe concurring with 
the Yorkshire Pdfs verdict that 
now was the time to praise 
Boycott, not to bury him. 

Even his closest friends ac- 
cepted that this time there could 
he no back. The only 

hint of dissent came from Peter 
Briggs, one of the leading mem- 
bers of tire Yorkshire Reform 
, Group who had led tile way in 
’ tire overthrow of the ok) commit- 
tee ia 1984. 

**We will have to wait and see 
what tire members find about it,” 
Brjggs said. 

‘One person does 
not make a team 9 

“I don't expect there wS) be 
the same furore as last time, 
because there is not the same 
dear injustice, bat I think the 
decision will cost the dab 
money,” a reference to tire belief 
that some members will lapse 
their membership as a result 

Tony Vann, the lone voice on 
the cricket sob-committee 
advocating the renewal of 
Boycott's contract however, 
agreed with tire dab chairman 
Brian Walsh's expectation that 
tire decision would be accepted 
without d em u r . 

Paying tribute to Boycott 
. Vann said: “1 am proud to call 
fauna friend. His contribution to 
Yorkshire has been immense 
and. statistically, he is the 
greatest English batsman since 
the war.” Vann, however, added: 
"There will be no repeat of what 
happened three years ago. The 
matter is dosed. I accept tire 
decision with sadness but with 
grace because that is 


By Peter Ball 

while he has been ultra-success- 
fal the team have not 
“One person does not make a 
team and the atmosphere in the 
dressing room has not been 
beJpfnL So many players have 
left and become stare elsewhere 
and I think for the last several 
yeans it has been very difficult 
for players in the side who have 
been overshadowed and kepi in 
the backwater by his presence. 
One Of his faults, perhaps, has 
been Hin t he put himself above 
the game and the dub.” 

i mitinf back on his own time 
as a colleague of Boycott's, 
Close was unable to select any 
particular r p wwi g s which stood 
out. “We shared so many 
partnerships," although he 
agreed that Boycott’s un- 
characteristically aggressive 
146 against Surrey in the 1965 
Gillette Cop final remained 
firmly in the memory. 

“I went in No. 3 and gave him 
bis instructions throoghont the 
innings," Close chuckled, add- 
ing, “as captain I had no 
difficulty with him because 1 
read him straightaway and 
taught him what was required. 
The trouble came when be 
finished up running the job 
himself 


Brian dose, Boycott's prede- 
cessor as captain and now 
chairman of the cricket commit- 
tee, also spoke of his sadness at 
having to make the decision. “I 
am a sentimentalist and it would 
have been nice to say 'keep 
going, keep on breaking records* 
but as a committee, we had to 
consider the best interests of 
Yorkshire as a whole. 

“He has been x great player in

single-minded, and in tire coarse 
of the last 20 years no-one can 
say he hasn't done his staff. Bat 


Boycott's contemporaries are 
not alone in admiring his tech- 
nique anH application. Sir ten 
Hutton, a batsman of even 
greater gifts, who had described 
the revolution in 1984 as “a 
victory for non-cricketers over 
cricketers”, was reluctant to 
discuss the decision yesterday 
bet he said of Boycott the 
batsman: “He certainly took a 
bit of getting out He most be lire 

best five-day player there has 
ever been." 

That view is echoed by Ronnie 
Burnett, another former York- 
shire captain and the chairman 
of the cricket committee who 
took the derision lo release 
Boycott in 1 983. 

Right decision 
has been taken 

“He always has been and still 
is a perfect five-day Test player. 
I'm sure he could fully jnstify 
himself in the England side even 
now," be said. Bat he has not 
been a good three-day player for 
some time. Unless it was on a 
sticky wicket, if he get a hundred 
in a normal county match H 
made it very difficult for York- 
shire to win the game, because at 
bis normal rate it takes him 
around 80 avers and that is tow 
slow.” 

That belief makes Barnett 
agree that the right derision has 
beea taken. 


Calling time on intimidation 


From Mr E. Ford 
Sir. I am much interested in your 
article and of its follow up — 
particularly Tim Rice's contribu- 
tion - and I agree with almost all 
his concerns and wishes. Two 
years ago. I put forward four 
suggestions for removing the 
intimidatory bowling which is 
ruining first-class cricket Since 
then, despite a mounting number 
of injuries and an augmentation of 
the protective armour required of 
batsmen, nothing effective has 
been done to arrest the decline of 
this historic national game. 1 am 
accordingly emboldened to repeat 
them. They are: 

1. That a chalk line be drawn 
across the middle of the pitch half 
way between the wickets and the 
laws of the game amended so that 
any ball bouncing on the bowler's 
side of that line should be a no-ball 
and called as such by the umpire. 

2. That bowlers must have both 
feet behind the bowling crease 
when delivering the ball.This per- 
haps is the most controversial 
suggestion but I submit that all 
bowlers, fast, medium or slow, 
would very soon adjust to it. It 
would lake the edge off the 90- 
mile5 an hour delivery. It would 
give more room for the seam- 
bowler's swerve, and be a positive 
help to the slow bowler whose 
deception depends largely on vari- 
ation and flight. Moreover it 
would make the umpires' task 
easier, both in spotting a no-ball 
and in being able to call in time for 
the batsman to react to the call. 

3. That no fieldsman should be 
allowed to wear a helmet. The 
only reason for this accoutrement 
is to enable a fielder to stand 
within a tew feet of the batsman, 
while the bowler then hurls at him 
short halls which, if he plays them 
defensively, he must do by putting 
his bal to them high in the air from 
which they are likely to fall to the 
ground within a short distance 
from the bat. Leg theory bos long 
been exploited by in-swingers, 
such as by Worcestershire's Fred 
Root, or by off-break bowlers like 
Gloucestershire’s Goddard, who 
might station three or four men 
close in on the leg side, to take 
catches but not so close that they 
needed crash helmets to protect 
their skulls from grievous harm. 
Even the much abused body-line 
bowling of Larwood, designed to 
overcome the dominance of 
Bradman, did not demand this 
“leg-trap” to be dressed like motor 
cyclists. They did not venture 
nearer to the batsman than was 
reasonably prudent for a man in 
conventional cricketing clothes. 

4. That a line be drawn at a 
reasonable distance behind the 
wicket (say 22 yards), beyond 
which no bowler could go to start 
his run. It is incontestable that 
these elongated runs are quite 
unnecessary. They slow up the 
over-rate intolerably, and lead loa 
plethora of no-balis. which were 
unheard of by the great fast 
bowlers of old. Over-long runs 
makes practice in nets and cer- 
tainly indoors, impracticable. 


If these simple measures were 
given a trial, then I believe we 
should soon get back the pleasures 
of playing and watching the game 
as it is surely meant to be played. 
Is it too much to hope that we may 
yet see Gower and Botham batting 
hatless like Percy Chapman and 
Herbert Sutcliffe? Or the guile and 
skill of slow and medium-paced 
spinners rewarded by results such 
as those achieved by Parker. 
Freeman. Laker. O’Reilly and 
Grimmett? What better fira than 
to watch a great batsman dealing 
with the uncertain bounce of a 
worn pitch, exploited by a Verity 
or Underwood? 

Yours sincerely.

Home fixtures 

From Dr Michael Turner 

Sir. Lovers of the game of cricket 
will have been interested to read 
your end of term report, in 
particular for the opinions of 
practitioners and well-known 
spectators as to what is wrong with 
the “English” game at the mo- 
ment. The euphoria of winning 
the Ashes not much more than 12 
months ago has soon disappeared. 
When you are winning everything 
is fine but when you lose, some- 
thing must be wrong. In truth, 
wbat is wrong today was also 
wrong while we were winning the 
Ashes. 

However, the end of term report 
missed the vita) truth, the truth 
that club cricketers, cricketing 
parents and schoolteacher cricket- 
ers will tell you about. Colin 
Atkinson touched upon the prob- 
lem. but from the safe distance of 
Militictd School, where sport is 
not simply encouraged but pos- 
itively fed with resources. For 
many people in many parts of the 
country school cricket does not 
exist. 

As secretary and archivist of 
Hull University staff cricket club, 
a club which was founded in 1949 
and which traditionally devotes 
half of its fixture list to midweek 
evening friend! v matches with 
local school staff sides. I can tell 
the readership of this newspaper 
that we have not played an away 
game since 1979. The facilities 
either do not exist or are so badly 
maintained as lo be dangerous. 
Those that would say that there is 
no place for politics in span are 
deluding themselves - life itself is 
politics - and what English cricket 
should demand is the political will 
to inject funds into providing 
decent facilities at school level. 
The curriculum is cry ing out for 
more resources, but so also is the 
physical education of our youth. 
Youre sincerely.

Contrived finish 

From Mr Keith W. Trembling 
Sir, With the possible exception of 
four-day county championship 
matches — because of the in- 
evitably reduced number of games 
and the likely consequent effect of 
felling county dub memberships 
— may I wholeheartedly agree with 
Tim Rice's diagnosis of the needs 
of English first-class cricket. 

Particularly I would wish to 
underscore his dislike of contrived 
finishes and. forfeited innings. I 
write as a fervent, though exiled, ■ 
Surrey supporter, but deeply de- 
plore their gaining of third place 
money by means of such a 
contrived finish in their final 
game. Such machinations are 
manifestly unfair to other coun- 
ties. 

May I comment too on his 
eleventh point, viz. the waiting 
time for MCC membership. Hav- 
ing waited for five years I naively 
assumed I might be getting near 
the top of the list. Not a bit of it! 
On enquiry ! was informed that at 
the present rate of turnover I 
might expect to become a full 
member in another 20 years! Since 
I shall then, if spared, be 76. I 
despair of ever getting in. While 
appreciating that there have to be 
some limits, should not the 
permitted numbers be consid- 
erably increased? Think of the 
extra income. MCC. 

Yours sincerely.

Playing days 


Quiet times 


From Mr J. P. F. Warner 
Sir. Your cricket correspondent 
ended the first part of his 
scries. “The state of English 
cricket” by referring to a remark 
made to us by my father. Sir 
Pelham. 

I remember we were much 
amused that he could imagine we 
doubted his love of cricket. We 
were in a clock tower box at Lord's 
— the weather good, the cricket 
keen, the crowd, except when 
applause was merited, quiet! One 
could hear.“the patter of the 
bowlers feet'’ 

I fear that in the present cricket 
dimate if he were watching, or 
talking of the game he would 
say. “You know. Woodcock. I 
loved cricket once.” 

And he would still admire the 
writing of your cricket correspon- 
dent. 

Yours faithfully.

From Mr Alan Rowan-Robinson 
Sir, There have been constant 
references to what is said to be a 
seven-day week for county cricket- 
ers. It should be noted that the 
cricket season this year lasted for 
153 days and the rare player who 
participated in every Britannic 
Assurance and John Player Spe- 
cial League match would be 
engaged on 88 days. In addition, 
he would be expected to be 
involved for six days against a 
university and a louring team. A 
reasonable run in the two knock- 
out competitions would take, say,* 
a further nine days. This pro- 
gramme amounts to 103 playing 
days, about two days out of three 
during the season. 

Yours faithfully.

Safety first 

From Mr D. McFarlane 
Sir. I have read the marvellous 
article by your cricket correspon- 
dent on the slate of English 
cricket It sums up the position 
perfectly. 

One aspect I have never under- 
stood. Why. should the close-in 
fielder be allowed to protect 
himself by the use of a helmet? 
The solution is obvious. He 
should field no closer than his • 
safety permits.

Terror tactics 

From Miss E. Poole Hughes 
Sir, 1 would simply like to say how 
glad I was to read Mr Woodcock’s 
article on the slate of English 
cricket. 

It is comforting to know that 
one's feelings about cricket are 
shared by experts like Mr Wood- 
cock and to see them so ably 
expressed on paper! 

To me the "terror” ta cries of 
some of the fast bowlers is one of 
the worst features of the present 
day game. 

Yours sincerely.

Free hit 

From Mr B. Hughes 
Sir. I very much enjoyed John 
Woodcock's article in yesterday’s 
Times and agreed with every word 
of it Do you think the following 
suggestion has any merit? 

If a ball is deemed intimidatory 
by the umpire, the following 
delivery shall automatically be a 
no-bail 

The bowler is thus not deprived 
of his legitimate ’'bouncer" 
weapon, but suffers -the penalty 
that the batsman, if he is still 
there, is allowed a free hit The 
bowler would not avoid this 
penalty by bowling wide. 

Youre sincerely,

Within limits 

From Mr C. H’. Daw 
Sir, Your cricket correspondent 
describes how the game is being 
ruined by fast bowlers delivering 
short-pitched balls. 

Surely the remedy is to mark, at 
each end of the pitch, a rectangle 
defining the acceptable limits 
within which -the ball must be 
pitched. Any delivery pitching 
outside this rectangle, whether 
short, long or wide, would be a no- 
ball. 

It works well enough in tennis. 
Yours faithfully. . - _ ...

Underhand antics 

From Mr G. Collins 
Sir. Alter the rules, introducing a 
five pace run up to the crease Tor 
bowlcre. Those that want to ran 
1 00 yards before slinging the' bail 
at the batsman would then be 
disqualified. The game was never 
meant to be played in. such, a 
ludicrous fashion. Remember it 
started off with underarm bowl- 
ing. If underhand methods to the 
game are continued to be allowed 
then we will continue to look like a 
bunch of idiots. We will not then 
need videos, helmets and body 
armour to combat this invidious 
deterioration of our game.

From The Reverend Prebendary 
WR Chignell 

Sir, May I make a few suggestions 
which I do not recall having been 
mentioned by experts, perhaps 
because they are unable to see the 
wood because of their proximity 
to the trees. 

1. When cricket began to take 
shape an agricultural chain was 

. put down and wickets were placed - 
at the extremities of this common 
measurement — ie 22 yards. 

2. A bowling crease was marked 
in line with the stumps at each end 
of the pitch. This was to prevent 
any bowler from delivering the 
ball with either foot nearer than 22 
yards from the wicket at the 
opposite end. 

3. At some time, probably in the 
last century or in the late eigh- 
teenth century, the rot set in. 
Bowlers succeeded in getting the 
law changed so that they could 
place one foot beyond the bowling 
crease provided that the other was 
behind it at the moment of 
delivery. This remained the law 
until quite recent times. 

4. Then some bowlers dragged 
their back foot quite a consid- 
erable distance and were fre- 
quently no-balled when, the drag 
went over the bowling crease. 
Incidently this must have been a 
very difficult decision for the 
umpire who had to look in two 
directions at the same time — 
upwards and downwards — to be 
really accurate! 

5. So the law was altered again 
to the present ridiculous practice 
whereby the bowling crease no 
longer serves any vita! purpose 
and the bowlers now bowl from 20 
yards, two- feet away from the 
wicket at the other end. If my 
lamentable maths are correct this 
means the batsman defending his 
wicket from the bowler is only 19 
yards and one foot away from him 
at the moment of delivery. 

I would suggest that our cricket 
law makers should re-establish the 
original use of the bowling crease. 

If this were to be done, the 
following advantages would take 
place: 1. The angle of the dan- 
gerous short-pitched bah would 
. not be so steep because the bowler 
' would be bowling from at feast 
four feet further away. 2. The 
umpire would not only have a 
better view but also would be able 
to call and signal a no-bah sooner, 
thus giving the batsman more 
chance to give the ball a resound- 
ing whack, which was always a 
special joy and very satisfactory! 3. 
There would also be no excuse for 
a bowler to ran down the pitch, as 
so often happens today. 

Ifin the opinion of the umpire a 
bowler bowls a ball which bounces 
higher than the shoulders of a 
particular batsman, he should: i. 
Call and signal a 'boundary wide' 

- i.e. bowling at a Harry Pi‘ 
this would be about four and a he 
feet, and if at Joel Garner about 
six feet something. Furtitermore 


this should be in the bowler's 
analysis. The ball is just as 
dangerous the first time as the 
twentieth time. No captain is 
going to stand for a bowler giving 
away four runs with any fre- 
quency. To safeguard against a 
captain and a bowler agreeing to 
spend a few boundary wides for 
some- reason, the umpire should 
have power to warn the captain 
that the bowler will not be allowed 
to bowl again in that match, 
should he bowl another boundary 
wide. 

No fieldsman placed in front of 
the wicket, both on the off and leg- 
side may be stationed nearer than 
five yanis from the batsman. 
(Please forgive a story about this. 
Some few years ago I wrote in the 
Worcestershire county. " cricket 
year book a remark to the effect 
tbatTno sane cricketer ever 
fielded at silly-mid-off to Don 
Kenyon's batting.” Later I re- 
ceived a short note from the Rev. 
P. D. S. Blake (Oxford University 
and Sussex)?' Dear Chignell, I am 
sorry lo say that you are wrong in 
your remark about fielding silly- 
mid-off to Don Kenyon. When at 
Oxford I did — for one baiL Yours. 
P. D. S. Blake”). 

If this limit were placed on the 
fielding side, no 'armament' 
should be allowed except, of 
course, for the wicketkeeper. The 
likely results of this would be: far 
less push and prod and the 
rediscovery of splendid shots, and 
far less defensive bowling hoping 
for the deadly dull bat and pad 
verdict. 

Bowlers should be encouraged 
to vary their bowling so that no 
longer do we have to endure a 
great bowler like Underwood 
becoming an automaton. In order 
to achieve this the present Ibw law 
should ,be scrapped and, in its 
place the law should be something 
like this: If in the opinioa of the 
umpire a ball, wherever pitched, 
was going to hit the wicket but 
was prevented from doing so by 
the batsman's legs, he shall give 
the batsman out Ibw. If the ball 
hits tbe bat first this would clearly 
not be out Ibw. if it hits the leg first 
and then the bat an Ibw decision 
would be correct. A batsman has a 
bat with which to defend his 
wicket: to use his legs to do so 
turns him into a footballer, not a 
cricketer. 


Such a law as is suggested above 
would give both off ahd leg 
spinners an equally good chance 
to use their skills. My old friend. 
Roly Jenkins, bowled many a 
batsman round his legs with balls 
pitched Outside the feg stump 
indeed he almost seemed capable* 
of bowling a ball that turned at 
nght angjes! Why should such skill 
be penalized today? 

Yours sincerely.

FOOTBALL

Luton case could lead 
to a reformation 
within the League 


By Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent 


David Evans, the chairman 
of Luton Town, and especially 
John Smith, the secretary, 
have had the audacity to 
storm football corridors of 
power and throw a hand 
grenade into the room occu- 
pied by the League's manage- 
ment committee. Once the 
smell of cordite has lifted, the 
explosion is likely to have 
extensive repercussions. 

The initial victims are Lu- 
ton themselves, who have 
been technically knocked out 
of the Littlcwoods Cup. Al- 
though their own high prin- 
ciples remain intact, they have 
inflicted unnecessary and 
potentially severe financial 
damage on themselves. The 
competition, though relatively 
trivia] compared to the FA 
Cup. docs after all offer the 
richest prize in British sport. 

Luton had thought that the’ 
shrapnel, which came in the 
shape of rule 1 7 governing the 
allocation of tickets, might 
pierce the resolve of the 
committee. Instead, the 
chairmen's representative 
body tch they had no alter- 
native but to expel the club 
that had taken its own in- 
dividual stand against hooli- 
ganism hv banning away 
supporters. 

The decision has been 
greeted with dismay across the 
land from Whitehaven to 
Whitehall but Luton could 
have avoided the collision and 
still maintained their dignity. 
Why. for instance, did they 
not agree lo play the first leg of 
their lie against Cardiff City 
cither on a neutral ground or 
at Ninian Park? 

David PJeaL for one. feels 
that his former club should 
have chosen one of the two 
options. “David Evans and 
John Smith are men of vision 
and have passionate beliefs in 
the wav forward for football 
and maybe the country and 
other clubs in their own lime 
will see the w isdom of their 
policy. 

“But it may be unwise at 
this moment to impose their 
principles on other people. 
Every club should do what is 


right for themselves to try to 
solve the problem of hooligan- 
ism but providing that the 
action that they take does not 
breach the regulations of the 
competition in which they are 
playing.” 

Pleat Luton's manager un- 
til the dose season, was him- 
self involved in the move that 
was planned after the appall- 
ingly violent pitch invasion by 
Millwall’ssoHcalled supporters

concerned by his forma 1 col- 
leagues lack of flexibility, he 
remains foil of admiration for 
their qualities. 





press conference at noon to- 
day) that it could cover many 
more pages in the history of 
the current season. 

It could, and indeed should, 
lead to a reformation of the 
management committee 
which has over the years 
shown itself to be wholly 
inadequate, thoroughly inept 
and hopelessly out of touch 
with the modem era. It has 
stood as an immovable object 
in the past towards progress 
and its immediate removal 
would be to the game's ever- 
lasting benefit. 

That the chairmen as a 
whole should be the most 
promimem figures is a sad 
comment on the health of 
football Far. for too many of 
them are so enveloped in their 
own substantially over-devel- 
oped ego s that they cannot see 
beyond the walls of their 
collective self-interests and 
appreciate the broad outlook. 

Outsiders, such as the late 
Sir Norman Chester and Mr 
Justice Popplewell, have been 
invited on three occasions to 
glance into the future on their 
behalf But the chairmen, 
inexcusably and shamefully.

Magic moment: The Zambian Dtmhill Cup team of (left to right) Sam Mwanza, Peter Sinyama and Paul Tembo 

soak up the atmosphere at St Andrews 

Zambians go house-hunting 


By Mitchell Platts 


Peter Sinyama lees off against 
the United' States Open cham- 
pion Ray Floyd in the $1 million 
(about £690.000) Dunhill Cup at 
St Andrews today knowing chat 


Pleat note of caution 

He strongly recommended, 
for example, that the last place 
in the rearranged management 
committee should be taken by 
Smith, whose main rival was 
Irving Scholar. By a curious 
twist of fate. Scholar was two 
months later to be responsible 
for inviting him to leave 
Luton and become the new 
manager at Tottenham 
Hotspur. 

Smith is an unique member 
of the committee of eight. He 
alone is not a dub chairman. 
He alone has been involved in 
the profession since he left 
school and he alone does not 
ireat the job as a hobby. 

The second round of the 
Littlewoods Challenge Cup is 
already certain to be remem- 
bered for the tie that never 
look place. The topic is threat- 


whatever the outcome he will

dure designed to protect the a formality. The bookmakers 
hideously antiquated system, are displaying their usual reti- 


Since they are incapable of cent bonhomie by refusing to 
stepping forward together at 


anything more than a reluc- 
tant and apathetic shuffle, a 
leader must be chosen to pull 
them away from their crib- 
webs of complacency. Only 
then could fresh air be 
pumped into a structure that 
is littered with so many un- 
mistakable illogicalities and 
injustices. 

But who is there to 611 a role 
of such heavy responsibility? 
No list of realistic candidates 
would include a chairman but 
rather a secretary, such as 
Peter Robinson, of Liverpool, 
or Gordon Taylor, of the 
Professional Footballers 
Association, whose knowledge 
of the game is more intimate 


while at the same time offering 
20-1 against their opponents, 
odds which can only be flatter- 
ing to the Zambians. 

For Sinyama and his 
compatriots. Paid Tembo and 
Sami el Mwanza, have about as 
much chance of advancing past 
round one as they have of 
plugging a hole in Zambia's 
KaribaDamwitha 1.68 Dunlop 
Maxfli golfball. 

If that does not pul their task 
into perspective then Mwanza’s 
admission that he has never 
made a half-way cut in a 
tournament with an inter- 
national field, should explain 
everything as he faces Mark 


ening to become so expansive w t lose insight is thus more

three-man teams participating 
in this medal match-play event, 
wilL. nevertheless, win $5,000 
each for simply playing 18 holes 
on the Old Course; 

“It is a fortune,’' said 
Mwanza. aged 43. “I could 
never save it in my life. 1 will 
probably buy a house when I go 
home." 

Mwanza has never been to 
Britain. “St Andrews is not a 
bad place to come to on your 
frrat trip if you’re a golfer!” be 
added His usual duties involve 
working alongside Tembo, the 
professional at the Lusaka dub 
where he is the course 
administrator. 

He previously worked as a 
depot manager for Rothmans. 
“A friend of mine was a caddy at 
Lusaka.” explained Mwanza. 
“He has some assorted clubs 
and he showed me how to play 
one day. We used lo bit balls in a 
field Then one of my bosses at 
work asked me if I played golf. 


THE OLD COURSE! 
ST ANDREWS 


He said he would pay the green 
fees for me to have a round at 
Lusaka. After that he offered to 
pay my membership and he 
bought me some dubs.” 

By contrast Tembo and 
Sinyama arc more familiar with 
the international arena. They 
have played in the British 
Caledonian pro-ams at 
Gleneagles and they tried un- 
suecesswlly, to gel their Tour 
cards at the European school at 
La Manga, Spain, in 1984. 
Tembo has also played in the 
Benson and Hedges inter- 
national events at Fulfoid and 
St Mellion. 

“But we have never seen

we cannot put too many on for 
fear of not being able to swing. 
Hitting off the tee is no problem

Graham Kelly, the Football 
League secretary, yesterday re- 
plied to criticism of the manage- 
ment committee's decision to 
expel Luton Town from the 
Littlewomfs Cap because of the 
first division dab's ban on 
visiting fans at Kenilworth 
Road. He said that three im- 
portant facts had either been 
omitted or giren scant attention 
by the critics and R was im- 
portant that all the facts became 
public knowledge. 

Kelly said: “Since Luton's 
decision to ban away supporters, 
there have been three opportu- 
nities at League meetings for 
them to seek to amend the rales 
governing the allocation of tick- 
ets to away supporters. They 
failed to lake any of these 


opportunities. The management Litdewood's Cap are on a sad-

"We have some good caddies

Another superb round of golf 
by David Gilford, a Walker Cup 
player last year, placed him well 
in front in the PGA qualifying 
school at Foxbiils yesterday. A 
second 70, three under par. 
carried him four strokes ahead 
of Wraith Gram, a Cuddington 
assistant (72.72), and a Walker 
Cup colleague, Sandy Stephen 
(74.70). 

This was not quite the 
immaculate Gilford of the day 
before, when he never once 
deviated from fairway or green, 
but his short game adequately 
covered such minor imperfec- 
tions as there were elsewhere. 

A nine iron into a bunker at 
the first and a four iron which 
was short on the 195-yard fourth 
set him back a shot in each case, 
but he extracted fours from all 


but one of the five long holes 
and his putter, in splendid touch 
yesterday, holed from 20 feel for 
a two at the short eighth. 

John Hawkswonh, yet an- 
other of the Walker Cup class of 
*85. had a less comfortable 
round, but his 76. allied to a 72 
on Tuesday, beat the guillotine 
by several shots. Thus he goes to 
La Manga for the second time in 
search of his tour players* card 
in November. Last year he 
failed at the final hurdle of a six 
round tournament in Spain.

RUGBY UNION 

Big match 
set for 
Wrexham 

By David Hands 


The first international match 
between Wales and Scotland to 
! be plaved at undcr-21 level will 
be held on April 25 at 
Wrexham's Bryn Estyn ground. 

I The North Wales town is more 
accustomed to staging inter- 
national footbalj at the Race- 
course ground, so it will be quite 
a fillip to an area somewhat cut 
off from foe mainstream of 
Welsh rugby and whose natural 
affiliations are more with 
England's north west 

Indeed three North Wales 
dubs. Wrexham. Colwyn Bay 
and Ruthin, all applied to join 
the Girobank north-west league. 
But though they received per- 
mission from foe Welsh Rugby 
Union, the Rugby Football 
Union — feeling foe league was 
designed to improve English 
rugby — were not as 
sympathetic. 

North Wales as a rugby 
playing region has had its mo- 
ments in the spotlight — when 
they defeated Tonga m 1976. for 
instance, rather than in 
overwhelming defeat by the 
197 9 Romanian tourists — and 
there was genera] delight when 
Tony Gray, their area repre- 
sentative to the WRIT since 
1979. became the national coach 
last season. 

They are hoping, too. that if 
sufficient sponsorship becomes 
available north Wales may play 
host to the Fijian Barbarians, 
who are due to tour Europe later 
this year and are-looking for a 
fixture in early December. But 
foe area, a combination of 
Clwydd and Gwynedd, gets its 
main competition in the Welsh 
county championship. 

To this end they play a 
friendly game next Wednesday 
at Carlisle against Cumbria, 
who begin their own campaign 
in foe Thorn EMI County 
Championship against Durham 
a fortnight later. North Wales 
beat Cumbria J5-3 when the two 
sides met for the first time last 
season, and there are Welsh 
hopes that a fixture may be 
organized with Cheshire in the 
near future. 

The team to play at Carlisle 
was to be confirmed last night. 
Although it was felt unlikely 
Arthur Emyr. the Wales B and 
Swansea wing, would be asked 
to play for them. Gary Williams, 
foe Orrell scrum-half was ex- 
pected to be selected after his 
recovery from a fool injury 
sustained in a charity cycling 
event. 

Williams is due to return to 
Orrell's side on Saturday, at 
home to WakcfiekL a fixture 
arranged because Blackheath, 
Orrell's scheduled opponents; 
play a John Player Special Cup 
first round match at Saffron 
Walden this weekend. 

Orrcfl will be without 
Langford, their captain and full- 
back- who is away in Florida. 
Tabemer takes his place. In foe 
second row Bricrley replaces 
Kim mins, foe England B lock 
who was injured on Sunday 
playing for a northern jubilee 
XV against Sale. The club hope 
to see Peter Williams, their 
England squad full-back, some- 
time next week after his return 
from Australia but he is not 
expected to be available until 
later in the month.

Trevor Howard: The Gift Horse, 
on Channel 4, at 225pm 


Ken Harrison's film 1918 
(Channel 4, 9.30pm) makes a 
good job of concealing Its 
stage origins. And it would have 
made an equally good job of . 
concealing Its studio origins if the 
head of a microphone had * ’ 

not been permitted to pop into . 
the top or the picture from 
time to time, noticeably in the 
Red Cross office and the 
bedroom. I must admit that 
Initially, I feared the worst for 
this sad taie of a Texan town in 
the last year of the Great War 
when I Hstened to Robert 
Duvall ( could this reedy be 
the Robert Duvall ?) singing Keep 
. the Home Fires Burning 
. under the opening Wes in an 
arrangement that f$ 
anachronistic by a margin of 
something like 30 years. But

microphone, ought seriously

Mansell 
under 
Ferrari 
threat 

By John Bhmsden 

Ereco Ferrari announced at 
his raring headquarters in 
Maraneilo yesterday that be is 
considering taking legal action 
■gainst Nigel Mansefl for 
alleged breach of contract 
In revealing n»t he M 
signed Gerhard Berger, the 
talented Austrian driver, to 
partner Michele AJboreto in 
his Formula One team next 
season, the Connnendatore 
stated that he had reached an 
agreement with Mansell “ear- 
lier this season” but that the 
English driver had sub- 
seq neatly “unexpectedly bro- 
ken the accord”. 

Ferrari was one of several 
teams wooing Mansell daring 
the summer and, after paying 
Mr Ferrari the courtesy of a 
personal visit in July, fee left 
Italy with an offer for 1987 
which he dnly considered, 
along with those from several 
other teams. But, at the end of 
the day, Mansell's loyalty to 
the Canon-Williams team pre- 
vailed and, in August, he 
signed a new two-year contract 
with them. By then, Mansell's 
chances of winning this 
season's drivers' champion- 
ship bad increased and, with 
®aaly two races to go, he leads 
Nelson Piquet by 10 points. 

“Mansell signed a regular 
agreement on Jnly 10, after 
coming to Maraneilo twice on 
his initiative*' said Mr Ferrari. 
“Then his behavionr aston- 
ished ns." The Ferrari boss 
has never taken kindly to an 
offer bring declined by a driver 
whose services he is seeking. 

Bat perhaps significantly, 
when Stefan Johansson, the 
Swedish driver whom Berger 
will be replacing, asked a 
senior Ferrari team official 
last month whether Mansell 
had signed a contract he was 
told “no". 

Although plagued with 
mechanical problems this sea- 
son, Berger’s personal perfor- 
mances at the wheel of his 
Benetton-BMW have marked 
him as a driver of great 
potential. It has been said of 
him that be combines many of 
the qualities of two fellow 
Austrians — notably the car 
control of the late Jochen 
Rindt the posthumous world 
champion in 1970, and the 
racing intelligence of Niki 
Lauda, the tide bolder in 1975, 
1977 and 1984. 

Yet the announcement yes- 
terday indicated that Bereer, 
aged 27, had not been Mr 
Ferrari's first choice. Al- 
though the signing of the 
Aastrian means that 
Johansson's two-year career 
as a Ferrari driver is drawing 
to a dose, there is little chance 
of the London-based Swede 
remaining unemployed. 

Mr Ferrari also confirmed 
yesterday that John Barnard, 
until recently head of the 
engineering deportment of the 
McLaren International racing 
team, has been taken onto the 
Ferrari payroll as technical 
director and charged with the 
task of designing a winning 
chassis for 1987. His three 
year contact begins on Novem- 
ber 1 and it has been left to 
him to decide whether he 
wishes to be based in England 
or Italy. 


Cup success gives 
Smith a desire 
for the big times 


Denis Smith was feeling 
envious of John Hollins, his 
defeated rival yesterday. For a 
manager whose York City 
team had displayed more 
obvious first division qualities 
than Hollins's Chelsea the 
previous evening in their 
Li ok woods Cup tie, it was not 
how most third division man- 
agers would have felt. But then 
most third division managers 
have not spent mast of their 
career competing with the 
best 

Smith was envious of Chel- 
sea, who York beat 1-0 in the 
first leg of their second round 
tie at Bootham Crescent, be- 
cause at the weekend Chelsea 
go to Old Trafford for a 
League game while York go to 
Low Pasture, better known as 
Belle Vue, the home of Don- 
caster Rovers. Smith is only, 
too familiar with that ground 
and the Doncaster team. He is 
now in his fifth season at York 
but still none of the first 
division clubs have made a 
serious approach for a rare 
manager of integrity. 

“People say to me you've 
been at York for so long you 
can't be that ambitious. It's 


By CEve White • 
not a question of my ambition 
but how ambitious are first 
division chairmen to come in 
and compete for me. York 
have looked after me very 
well,” he said. “When 1 came 
to York I tokl them that it was 
a stepping stone. The first 
division is where it matters. It 
makes you envious to think 
where Chelsea are off to next” 

More football 
on page 40 

Smith has built up the 
stepping stone into the sort of 
solid foundations that are 
common in this city. The 
season before he joined them 
the club had had to apply for 
re-election to the League for 
the sixth time. Two seasons 
later they won the fourth 
division title with a League 
record of 101 points. Fine FA 
CUp performances in the last 
two seasons against Liverpool, 
whom they have twice forced 
to a fifth round replay, and 
Arsenal, whom they beat, 
have helped finance consid- 
erable improvements within 
the dub. 


Bilardo prefers to 
stay in Argentina 


SNOOKER 

Higgins 
pays 
the price 

Alex Higgins was fined 
£2,000 by snooker s governing 
body yesterday after being 
found guilty of bringing the 
game into disrepute. 

The Irishman was fined and 
severely reprimanded by the 
World ' Professional Billiards 
and Snooker Association at a 
hearing in Birmingham, after 
complaints about his conduct 
during the Mercantile Credit 
Classic, at Warrington in 
January. 

The case arose from abusive 
comments Higgins was alleged 
to have made to officials after 
being beaten by Rex Williams, 
the chairman of the WPBSA. 

The player’s manager, How- 
ard Kruger, said; “I am sur- 
prised at the severity of the 
fine for an incident which has 
been blown out of all propor- 
tion. I don't think it was fair to 
leave the case hanging around 
for almost nine months. 

The fine, however, is not the 
highest for a professional 
plavcr. Two season's ago Tony 
Knowles was fined £5.000 for 
bringing the ■ game into 
disrepute after the publication 
in a national newspaper of an 
article concerning his private 
life. 

Higgins has been fined a 
total of £5,200 fora variety of 
offences in his 15 years as a 
professional. His previous 
highest single fine was £1.500 
for an incident at the 1982 
world championship 

Kirk Stevens, of Canada, 
who also appeared before the 
board to explain why be foiled 
to show up at the Irish Benson 
and Hedges tournament in 
April, was fined £500 and 
-reprimanded. 


Buenos Aires (Reuter) — 
Carlos Bilardo will probably 
refuse a lucrative coaching job 
in European club football to 
prepare Argentina for their 
defence of the World Cup in 
Italy in 1990. B ilanio said he 
had received better offers 
from Italy. West Germany 
and France than from the 
Argentine Football Associ- 
ation could ever make but 
admitted he preferred to stay 
in his own country. 

Bilardo, who confounded 
his critics by taking Argentina 
to their second World Cup, 
said he would advise Julio 
Grondona, president of the 
AFA, of bis deration before 
the end of September. “There 
are two things: the four years 
and the departure of players," 
be said. 

Bilardo, whose current con- 
tract ends on December 31, 
said it was very hard to build a 
team when the best players 
were tempted abroad by much 
better pay terms than they 
could ever command In 
Argentina. But he has already 
overcome those difficulties 
once. Before the World Cup in 
Mexico, he gathered his squad 
together just one month be- 
fore the finals and built a 
winning team around Diego 
Maradona. 

Seven of the World Cup 
winning squad were with for- 
eign clubs before the Mexico 
finals. Three more have gone 
to Europe since, and Bilardo 
expected more to leave. He 
could not be sure of having his 
full team for the South Ameri- 
can championship next year 
and said: “We will have to 
work with those that come 
up Bilardo, a hard-working 
coach who said his success in 
Mexico was the result of 20 
years' work, noted signs of 
change in Argentinian league 


football following the national 
team's example. 

The cautious Bilardo was 
widely criticized before the 
World Cup by players who 
were dropped, by his prede- 
cessor, Cesar Menotti, and by 
the press and spectators for his 
defensive tactics. But 
Grondona, who backed him to 
the hilt, is expected to make 
the now popular coach an 
offer that will permit him to 
stay on. 

Bilardo has often said South 
American football was 15 
years behind the European 
game in coaching techniques 
and tactics, although not in 
individual (Maying skills. “We 
achieved the perfect balance." 
he said of his World Cup 
team, adding that the positive 
changes in the domestic game 
would make it easier for him 
in the future. “We will work 
on bettering the same 
system.” An obsessive tac- 
tician, he explained: “We 
must work on more dead-ball 
variations, the offside trap and 
rhythm.” 

- Bilardo gained a reputation 
for being very superstitious 
during the World Cup. He 
always sat down on the bench 
first before a match and his 
team walked onto the pitch in 
the same order and lined up in 
the same formations for the 
anthems and the photog- 
raphers. When Argentina beat 
South Korea in their opening 
match and he remembered he 
had borrowed Jose-Luis 
Brown's toothpaste the night 
before, he was compelled to 
borrow it every night for the 
rest of the tournament 
Bilardo said that outside 
competition, be had no super- 
stitions, but “if we were 
playing tonight and we won, I 
might ask Jose to come back 
here tomorrow.” 


But Clip runs, though lu- 
crative. invariably interfere 
with the League target if only 
because of injuries and 
suspensions, which was 
York's trouble test season 
when they slipped from a solid 
promotion position to seventh 
place. Even that was not bad 
for a manager who placed his. 
entertainment as his chief 
priority. “We play the way 1 
would enjoy watching foot- 
ball. It's based on the 
spectator’s view rather than 

the manager’s. They wouldn't 
come here to watch if we 
played it any other way,” he 
said. 

Such a beautiful city de- 
mands beautiful football and 
Smith has succeeded in 
providing . that and success, 
too, no easy marriage. He has 
done so by maintaining the 
high ideals which served Stoke 
City so faithfully through the 
years there as a player. But the 
time must come soon when 
Smith, like Constantine the 
Great, who was once Emperor 
of this historic tity, will move 
on to bigger, if not better, 
places and found his own 
Constantinople. 

Liege to 
get a 
financial 
facelift 

Brussels (Reuter) — Ber- 
nard Tapie, a Free-spending 
French entrepreneur, who has 
pumped thousands of francs 
into revitalizing the French 
football deb of Marseille Es 
now keen on giving Belginm's 
Standard Liege a financial 
facelift. 

Officials for the dob, once 
one the great names of Euro- 
pean football but languishing 
in the wilderness since a bribes 
scandal three years ago, said: 
“Bernard Tapie intends to 
extend his interests in football 
into Belgian and is interested 
in Standard.” 

in 1962, Standard liege 
reached the semifinals of the 
European Cup and in 1982 
they were beaten in 

the European Cap Winners’ 
Cop and Belgian champions. 
The next year the dab was 
racked by a bribes scandal 
which saw them stripped of 
the tide and led to the loss of 
several leading players and the 
then-manager. 

In order to win the title for 
the second year running play- 
ers of a little-fancied dab in 
the north had been bought to 
lose the final game of the 
season. Standard had at least 
to draw to ensure retaining the 
championship. 

Ironically, Tapie's interest 
comes at a moment when 
Standard, lying third in the 
Belgian league, are showing 
the first signs of worthwhile 
recovery from the affair. Next 
month the flamboyant Tapie is 
doe in -Brussels to present a 
television programme, during 
which he is expected to an- 
nounce his arrival on the 
Belgian football landscape. 



Club selection: Greg Norman sizes up for Ballesteros ' 

Rafferty prepares 
to stop top duel 


By Mitchell Platts 


Reman Rafferty goes into 
the Si million Dunhill Cup at 
St Andrews today intent on 
destroying the tingling pros- 
pect of Severiano Ballesteros 
and Greg Norman meeting in 
the semi-finals. Ballesteros 
has lost his place at the top of 
the Sony World Rankings this 
year to Norman and he would 
enjoy nothing more than the 
opportunity of a head-to-head 
confrontation on the Old 
course where he won the Open 
Championship in 1984. 

Nonnan, the Open cham- 
pion, said: “Seve told me after 
I had won the European Open 
at Sunnhagdale earlier this 
month that he wants to drill 
me in the Suntory world 
match play championship 
which is at Wentworth next 
week. I told him that we might 
be meeting before that in the 
Dunhill Cup.” 

I accept that neither of us 
has anything to prove. But it 
would be a marvellous chal- 
lenge for both of us and I am 
sure that the supporters of the 
game would appreciate such a 
confrontation at St Andrews.” 

Ballesteros said: “We have 
had some very good matches 
in the past and we have 
remained very good friends. I 
am looking forward to the 
possibility of playing Greg 
here and again at Wentworth 
next week.” 

If Spain and Australia col- 
lide in the semi-finals, then 
Nonnan will- nominate 
Ballesteros as his opponent 


The problem is that Spain face 
an awkward first round match 
against Ireland today and 
Rafferty is well aware that if 
he can move past Ballesteros 
then the chances are that his 
country will progress to the 
quarter-finals in this 16-na- 
tions event 

Des Smyth, the captain of 
the Irish team, said: “Ronan is 
just the player to give Seve a 
tough match. He loves a fight 
and he can rise to the occa- 
sion. I accept that Seve will be 
the favourite but I think that 
Ronan could be our hero." 

Smyth, however, feces 
difficult encounter himself 
against the prodigious Jose- 
Maria Olazabai, who showed 
little sign of being intimidated 
by tbe examination of golfs 
adopted Mecca by equalling 
the coarse record of 65 in the 
pro-am yesterday. 


Boycott keeps 
his plans 
under wraps 


f 


While television cameras 
.hovered hopefully round the 
gates Geoffrey Boycott sat at 
home yesterday pondering his 
future after his dismissal by 
Yorkshire County Cricket 
Club. 

Boycott so far has declined 
-to make any statement on his 
plans, although he has already 
had three substantial oners for 
his exclusive version of 
Tuesday's events, but it is 
thought that we have not seen 
the end of his connexion with 
cricket 

His friend and supporter, 
the Yorkshire committee man 
Tony Vann, said that Boycott 
had taken the decision welL 
“He was very buoyant when 
we had dinner after tbe meet- 
ing. He took it on the chin and 
showed great character. I am 
sure he will bounce back. He 
has come back from adversity 
in 1978 and 1983 and I am 
sure he will do so again. 
Cricket in the widest context 
has not beard the last of him.” 

Suggestions that Boycott 
may yet continue his career 


By Peter Ball 

with another county can prob- 
ably be discounted, however. 
Glamorgan, who are in- 
terested in almost anybody, 
seem likely to make an excep- 
tion in Boycott’s case, al- 
though it is believed they may 
be interested in the pace 
bowler Graham Stevenson, 
the other player Yorkshire 
released on Tuesday. Derby- 
shire, a regular resting place 
For former Yorkshire players, 
are also unlikely to extend 
their interest to encompass the 
former England opening bats- 
man. 

Boycott is still a member of 
the Yorkshire committee, and 
the expectation was yesterday 
that he would content himself 
with keeping contact with the 
game from that position. His 
unrivalled tactical brain and 
expertise could undoubtedly 
be usefully exploited in some 
capacity. 

He has, however, already 
made some mark as a com- 
mentator and it could well be 
that that is where his future 
will ultimately develop.

BASKETBALL 


Manchester steps up 
European glory bid 


By Nicholas Harling 


The mouthwatering pros- 
pect of home and away Euro- 
pean cup ties with Real 
Madrid as big a name in 
basketball circles as in foot- 
ball. awaits Sharp Manchester 
United 

AU the English champions 
have to do. and it is by no 
means as easy a task as it looks 
on paper, is to hold on to the 
91-67 advantage they gained 
in the first leg of their prelimi- 
nary round tie against Sport- 
ing Lisbon Benfica at Stretford 
on Wednesday, when they 
visit Lisbon for Sunday's re- 
turn match. 

A 24-point lead should be 
enough for any team to ad- 
vance but it is with the 
memory of what happened to 
them in Italy two years ago 
that Nigel Roden, tbe United 
director, said yesterday^* It is 
not all over. We have got to 
play well over there.” 

Roden only -too vividly 
recalls the night that United 
went to Livorno with a 15- 
point lead in the European 
Cup Winners' Cup, only to be 
thrashed by 25 on the Italian 
coastal resort. 

If United get through ou 
aggregate against Lisbon, they 


stage the home leg of their first 
round tie against Madrid, the 
crack Spanish club, next 
Wednesday and they will still 
not have begun the defence of 
their Carlsberg National 
league title. 

An intimidating fixture 
schedule awaits United but 
with players of the calibre of 
new 6ft 10 in American shot- 
blocker Derrick Phillips, his 
long-serving compatriot Will 
Brown and Kevin Penny, they 
need not have too many 
reservations. 

Afl three players were 
outstanding a gainst Lisbon, 
Penny in particular, inspiring 
United's recovery after they 
had fallen behind 14-7 after 
seven minutes. Phillips (24 
pis) and Brown (20) were 
United’s top scorns on a night 
when they had five players 
who made double figures — 
Jeff Jones, who had been 
doubtful beforehand with a 
groin injury, Dave Gardner 
and Penny being the others. 

One Lisbon player they 
must all be wary of is Carlos 
Lisboa, a Portuguese inter- 
national, who finished the 
game with 31 points.

SPORT !N BRIEF 


Tough 

going 

Yamoussoukro (Reuter) — 
Fifty finely-tuned cars sped 
into the West African bush 
yesterday at tbe start of the 
Ivory Coast's eighteenth mo- 
tor rally. For four days drivers 
will race over 23 1 2 miles of 
mostly bumpy dirt tracks, 
made more difficult by recent 
rains. Few are expected to 
-cross the finishing line on 
Saturday in an event which 
counts towards the world rally 
drivers' championship, but 
not for manufacturers’ prize. , 

Fiance, as usual, are well 
represented in the major 
sporting event of this former 
French colony, but the 
favourite is the Swede Bjorn 
Waklegaard, in a Toyota, who 
won tbe event in 1980 and 
1983 and shared victory in 
1985. 

Bobby’s bid 

Bobby Otari ton has been 
chosen, as part of the team to 
represent Birmingham in their 
bid to stage the Olympic 
Games. Tbe former England 
football international has ac- 
cepted the invitation of Denis 
Howell, the president of the 
Birmingham Olympic Coun- 
cil, to talk to members of the 
International Olympic 
Committee before they vote in 
Lausanne next month on 
which city will host the 1992 
summer games. 

. Other top sportsmen 
accompanying Charlton _ to 
Switzerland are Sebastian 
Coc, Judy Simpson, Tessa 
Sanderson and Duncan 
Goodbew. the former Olyxn- . 
pic swimming champion. 



Dilley waiting 

Graham Dilley, tbe Kent 
and England fast bowler 
whose contract with his 
county expires at the end of 
the year, said yesterday that he 
hopes to settle his future soon. 
Kent have said they wfil be 
offering the player a new 
contract, but Dilley, who 
leaves for Australia with the 
England squad in two weeks 
time, said: “I haven't seen it 
yeL I am keen to do so in order 
to decide on my fixture as soon 
as possible.”

London Irish on Saturday, 
Crawford is one of four 
changes in a side beaten 33-3 
at Gosfonh last weekend. 


way of life, which seldom lades 
contrast or contradiction, the 
tied Test match at Madras, 
between India and Australia, 
has felled to' make an atom of 
difference to ticket sales to the 
second Test which starts here 
tomorrow. The dramatic Ma- 
dras finale in an; other coun- 
try would have boosted 
attendances for the next 
match, particularly as it fol- 
lows so soon afterwards. 

Delhi officials, however, 
predict meagre crowds over 
the five days at the Faux Shah 
Kotia ground, even tbongh this 
is the first Test played in the 
Indian capital for two years, 
when Edmonds and Pocock 
bowled England to victory. 
There are several explana- 
tions and it should be forgotten 
that Delhi never matches rival 
Indian cities in attendance 
terms. The ground only holds 
27,000 when felL 

Bnt the Madras game does 
remain a big taflnng point 
across the country, naturally, 
and for ticket sales here to stay 
static is a disappointment to 
the Indian Board. The simple 
reason is that in common with 
tite worldwide trend, Indian 
spectators are now folly con- 
verted to limited-overs cricket 

In India's case the enthu- 
siasm for the instant variety 
was (helled by their 1983 
World Cup triumph. So, 48 
honrs after tomorrow’s poorly 
supported Test match is 
scheduled to end, the same 
grodnd next Thursday will be 
filled for the fourth one-day 
international between the 
same sides. 

Television, too, quickly 
comes into any discussion 
these days on Indian Test 
attendances. Nearly every ball 
is screened and in a country of 
low national incomes, this 
must also help to reduce 
crowds. Tbe Cricket Board of 
Control, ironically, receives no 
fee from the government- 
owned tdevisiou service but at 
least the local cricket associ- 
ation," 'which stage the Tests, 
reap rich rewards from their 
advertising boards. 

Unlike Australia it has 
never been realistic for the 
area where the Test is bemg 
played to be blacked out 
within a hundred mile radius.

Hyderabad (Reuter) — An 
afternoon downpour forced 
India and Australia to aban- 
don the third one-day inter- 
national yesterday, leaving the 
teams level at 1-1 in the six- 
game series. Ritchie top- 
scored for Australia with an 
entertaining 75, including four 
sixes and seven fours. He was 
stumped trying for another six

“You must remember that in 
this conn try even the soup 
smells of politics,” an Indian 
broadcasting colleague added. 

DethTs poor ticket sates do 
not detract, of coarse, from the 
undoubted fillip that five-day 
cricket has been given by the 
Madras tie. Bapu Nadkami, 
the former Test all-romider, 
epitomized the attitude of 
several ex-Indian players 
when he said: “In toe presort 
era when five-day Tests are 
losing spectator appeal, the 
time has come for a shot in tbe

playing countries all over the 
world should be grateful to 
these two countries for playiig> 
such a memorable match.” 

In the rushed fruition of 
modern tours, there has been 
no respite for the players, who 
met yesterday in a one-day 
international at Hyderabad. 
“This was, incidentally, 
India's 1 00th one-day inter- 
national, which emphasizes 
how they have proliferate ; 
India played their first one- 
day match overseas, at Leeds 
in 1974; their first at home was 
not until 1981-82 a gain** 
Fletcher's England team.” 

Thera has not yet been the 
chance, therefore, to discuss 
events in Madras with toe 
cricketers. Already Maunder 
Singh, the last man out, has 
been quoted in print to toe 
effect that he believed he girt 
“a nick” of tbe ball which 
dismissed him leg-before. 
Sbastri, the batsman at fee 
other end, also believes 
Maunder did.

Somerset now 
want ballot 
over sackings 

Somerset's committee 
wants the row over the dis- 
missal of Viv Richards and 
Joel Gamer to be settled by a 
secret postal ballot of all foil 
members. This would replace 
the special general meeting, 
requisitioned ■ by 100 mem- 
bers, after the committee had 
decided not to renew the 
contracts of Richaids and 
Gamer. 

Michael HiU, the dub's 
chairman, said last night: 
“This would give all our 
members a much feirer chance 
of registering their opinion. A 
postal ballot of this sort is not 
covered by the present club 
rules, so it would need the 
agreement of both sides to 

Kg*» "H* -

fallof wcKBSii- 65 , 2 - 78 . Mil. 4 - the members who 

requisitioned the special gen- 
eral meeting, but so far we 
have not had their reaction” 

Under dub rules, the vote 
of no-confidence in the 
committee will be derided by 
a simple majority of those 
present and voting at the 
speaaj general meeting, the 
venue and time of which has 
to be made known to mem- 
bers before October I. -
