TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1986 


The Soviet Union yesterday 
released Mr Nicholas 
Daniloff, the American 
journal LSI accused of spying,

power crisis and dealing the 
way for a critical pre-Christ-

the start of a political rally in

Although Adm ini station of- 
ficials would make no im- 
mediate comment yesterday, 
it was clear that the arrange- 
1 ments between the super- 

powers- will lead to the 
eventual release of Mr 
Genaddy Zakharov, a Soyiet 
employee accused of spying 
against the United States. 

It was widely speculated 
£ here that the Soviet Union 

• will later release some dis- 
sidents in return for the 
release of Mr Zakharov, who 
is awaiting trial in New York. 

Senator Robert Dole, the 
Republican leader of the Sen- 
ate, said yesterday it appeared 
that Mr Daniloff 5 release was 
unconditional; that the Soviet 
Union was admitting that the 
journalist was not a spy, and 
that it was trying to find a way 
out of a “colossal blunder”. 

Mr Larry Speakes, the 
While House spokesman, said 
a superpower summit this 
^ year was “possible”.

By Rodney Lord 
Economics Editor 

Pressure for higher interest

in London's financial markets 
yesterday. A politically' 
embarrassing rise of up to 2 
percentage points was feared 
on the indication of dealing 
rales. 

If bank base rates rise, 
mortgage rates are expected to 
follow. 

But the Bank of England 
resisted the pressure by inter-

markets to support sterling. In 
money markets it indicated no 
change for the time being.

Hunt for solicitor

The week-long hunt for Mr 
Ian Wood, the Sheffield solic-

about the murder of his 
French mistress and her young 
daughter, ended last night on a 
tower of the cathedra] in 
Amiens, the dead woman's 
home town in northern 
France. 

Mr Wood rave himself up

“I prefer to help the young 
and the old, because they are 
the ones least- able to help

home at Ascot, Berkshire, 
where in his 81st year he still

seems to accumulate even 
when he is swimming.

Last year he gave £280.000

when its executive commit- 
tee meets next week. 


The recommendation 
was made to an FA board of 
inquiry which met at Odsal 
stadium in Bradford yes- 
terday. There was a near- 
disaster at the gronnd nine 
days ago when hooligans 
tried to topple a fish and 


chip van containing boiling 
fat on to a stand holding 

7.000 fans, daring the 
Bradford City-Leeds 
United game. About 

13.000 spectators stam- 
peded in terror. 


Parents who feared a 
-coal waste tip could engulf 
their Welsh village school 
claimed a victory last night 
after keeping dozens of 
children away from

They launched an action

lage was being threatened

the Aberfan disaster. Chil- 
dren aged between five and

school last Wednesday. 

Yesterday the Welsh 
Development Agency an- 
nounced that the Bwllfa tip, 
which stands on a

in the Rhondda Valley, is 
to be cleared. Work is to 
begin immediately on a

the coal waste tip. 


Nurses’ fear violence 


Norses have threatened to withdraw 24-hour community 
n arsing services because of the increasing incidents of 
violence in inner cities (Jill Sherman writes). 

Mrs Ainna Fawcett-Henesy, adviser in primary health 
care to the Royal College of Nursing, said that nurses were 
particularly vulnerable working outside normal boors of 
doty. “We have been committed to 24-hour nursing 
services. But given the increase in violence some 
consideration has got to be given to whether that service 
can be developed farther.'" 

Giving evidence to Mr Norman Fowler, the Secretary of 
State for Social Services, on the Green Paper on primary 
health care, Mrs Fawcett-Henesy said that the , !iblic was 
no longer prepared to protect the nnrse as it had done in the 
past. “The fact that nurses are seen as members of 
authority acts as a disadvantage. The image of the Angel of 
Mercy is gone."

Arts Correspondent 

The BBC has postponed 
production of a play about the 
Falklands conflict because il 
was considered to be “an 
unacceptable dramatic risk" 
in the run-up to the next 
general election. 

Hie statement issued by the 
corporation yesterday came 
after allegations by Mr Ian

Nidal terrorist organization, at theCentral Criminal Court 
last week, it was disclosed that four grenades had been 
smuggled into Heathrow on board a Libyan Arab Airlines 
plane. 


him to make political alter- 
ations to the text. 

. “He asked me if t would 
consider changing certain War 
Cabinet scenes to give the 
dear impression that some 
decisions were taken in the 
light of forthcoming elections 
at the lime. In other words, to 
suggest that they were taken 
for political gain. 


The decision on the ending of flights is expected to be 
taken within the next few days after consultation between 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, Foreign Secretary, Mr Dosglas Hurd, 
Home Secretary, and Mr John Moore, Secretary of State 
for Transport. An immediate ban on Bights will not involve 
any legal problems, because the state-owned airline does 
not have an air service agreement with Britain. 


Curteis, the scriptwriter, that 
the£l million production had 
been shelved after he had 
refused to make political 
changes. 

Mr Curteis said that Mr 
Alasdair Milne, director gen- 
eral of the BBC. had commis- 
sioned the historical play three 
years ago and had com- 
plimented him on the script 
when it was completed last 
April. 

However, Mr Peter 
Goodchild, BBC Television's 
head of plays, later requested 


“I thought it was an ugly 
lea, and said so. I could 2nd 


idea, and said so. 1 could 2nd 
no historical evidence to sup- 
port it, and a member of the 
War Cabinet, who is not a 
politician, assured me that 
domestic political issues 
played no part in the military 


decisions." 

Mr Curteis said he had also 
been asked to delete scenes 
portraying Mrs Thatcher 
weeping at the loss of HMS 
Sheffield, and writing peisonaJ 
letters to the bereaved. 

Mr Milne then informed 
bim in July that Mr BiU 
Cotton, managing director of 


BBC Television, and Mr Mi- 
chael Grade, director of pro- 
grammes, both had 
reservations about the play, 
and it bad been derided not to 
produce it until after die next 
elections. . . 

The director-general said m 
a tetter that he personally 
thought much of the play, but 
that it would be “greatly 
compromised if it got caught 
up in pre-election frenzy". 

“What it amounts to is that 
I was asked to falsify the 
historical records to project a 
political view,” Mr Curteis 
said. 

“I am sad beyond words 
that a great institution like the 
BBC should be reduced to 
cancelling meticulously re- 
searched historical plays be- 
cause they do not coincide 
with the political views of the 
television establishment. 
There can be no other 
explanation for their 
derision.”

Dr Owen 
joins rates 
wrangle 


By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Dr David Owen yesterday 
stepped into the controversy 
over the future of the rating 
system by calling far its 
replacement by load income 
tax. 

The intervention by the 
leader of the Social Demo- 
cratic Party came with the 
Government poised to begin 
the first stage of scrapping 
domestic rales and fulfilling a 
promise first given by Mrs 
Thatcher 12 years ago. 

In the Queen's Speech on 
November 12, it will an- 
nounce its intention to bring 
in a new BUI replacing domes- 
tic rates with a pou tax of 
about £200 per head for 
people over the age of 18 
living in Scotland. 

Consultations on similar 
proposals for England and 
Wales outlined in a Green 
Paper, Paying for Local Gov- 
ernment , come to a close at the 
end of October. Ministers will 
then have to decide whether to 
follow the Scottish lead. 

Dr Owen said rates are , 
unfair because they hit those 
households on modest in- 
comes relatively harder than 
those who are better off 
But the proposed commu- 
nity charge or poll tax fell into 
the same trap. Citing figures 
from the Green Paper he said 
that only the very poor and the 
affluent would gain from the 
change. Families on below 
average earnings of between 
£50 and £150 a week would 
lose. 

The biggest flaw lay in the 
Government's plan to assume 
control of setting the levels of 
non-domestic rates. This, he 
said, would mean Whitehall 
holding the purse strings of 75 
per cent of council spending. 
Local income tax, generat- 
ing more than 70 per cent of 
expenditure, overcame the 
drawbacks of both systems.

Survival 
plan by 
Birkbeck 







A team of academics from 
Birkbeck College, London, has 
assembled a survival package 
to put before Mr Kenneth 
Baker, the Secretary of State 
for Education, on Thursday 
when they meet him to discuss 
the dispute over future fund- 
ing (Our Education Reporter 
writes). 

Biricbeck is the only univer- 
sity college in the country 
which devotes itself to teach- 
ing working adults part-time 
in the evenings. 

Earlier this year the Univer- 
sity Grants Committee gave 
the college a temporary re- 
prieve when it derided to 
award an additional £600,000 
after originally cutting the 
money spent per student.

paign committee described 
the money as no more than a 
“palliative.” 

Under the direction of 
Professor Robin Marris, an 
economist, Birkbeck staff 
have put together a paper j 
which compares the cost- 
benefit record of the college 
with other institutions. 

• Birkbeck staff will be hop- 
ing to play on the 
Government's views of the 
importance of adult education 
and part-time teaching to 
persuade Mr Baker to secure a 
review of the grant situation. 


It was obvious, however 
that the former champion 
in no way perturbed but was 
merely treating this important 
game with the black pieces 
with the utmost caution. 

Kasparov played his first |g 
moves almost without think, 
ing. He then devoted nearly &q 
hour to the remaining five 
moves, but it was impossible 
to detect any advantage far 
him. It is my belief thin* 
Kasparov's intention tad 
been to play 14 nxcS. 
Overlooking that black can

The only consolation that 
Kasparov can draw from this 
feeble effort with the white 
pieces is that he has at lost 
stemmed Karpov's recent 
I flow of victories. With no 
| time-outs available to either 
player the 21st game will now

gan/e Karpov will have the 
advantageous white pieces. If 
Kasparov cannot improve on 
i his defences from games 17 
and 1 9 his chances of retaining I 
the title are slim. 

The final shoot-out of four 
games, sees both players on 10 
points. Kasparov must reach 
12 points to hold his title. 
However, the first player to 
win six games will become 
world champion and both 
have four wins. The final 
phase will be covered by The 
Times commentary room at 
the .Great Eastern Hotel, 
Liverpool Street, London.

Print workers in new jobs 


Speaking to the annual con- 
ference of the Rating and 
Valuation Association in Scar- 
borough, Dr Owen said: The 
philosophy behind introduc- j 
ing local income tax is to give 1 
local authorities greater in- 
dependence. 

“But for it to be workable 
there must be major changes 
in the way councils are elected 
to ensure that they are fully 
representative of local 
voters.” 

Dr Owen envisaged the new 
tax being collected by the 
Inland Revenue on the basis 
of a year-end assessment sepa- 
rate from PAYE and then 
being channelled to the rele- 
vant councils. 


• The Association of 
, Chambers of Commerce yes- 
terday demanded a rates dis- 
count of 10 per cent in return 
for backing the Government’s 
plan to replace the present 
rating system. 


At least half of the 4,000 
Sogat '82 print union mem- 
bers formerly employed by 
News International have now 
got other jobs and are no 
longer directly involved in the 
dispute with the company. 

Some of them have ob- 
tained fall or part-time po- 
sitions within the national 
newspaper industry but the 
majority, particularly clerical 
workers, have found employ- 
ment in other fields. 

These figures, conceded by 
the union at national level, 
may have a crucial bearing on 
whether the members vote to 
end the eight-month old dis- 
pute which began when 5.500 
workers went on strike and 
were dismissed by tbe 
company. 

For although Miss Brenda 
Dean, the union's general 
secretary announced last week 
she had recommended accep- 
tance of the company’s “best, 
last and final offer” she is 
facing a revolt from hard-line 
London branch officials. 

Miss Dean is insisting that 
all her members involved in 
ihe dispute, with the exception 
of those who crossed picket 
lines, should be given a ballot 
paper. In a letter to the 
branches, she says that these 
must include “not only those 
who came out on strike and 
who are still on strike, but also 
those who since the strike 


By Tim Jones 

commenced have taken nor- 
mal or eariy retirement, those 
who have taken employment 
elsewhere, whether that 
employment is inside the 
trade or outside the trade or 
whether the employment is 
temporary employment or 
not” 

But many London union 
activists who are campaigning 
strongly for the offer to be 
rejected dairo that Miss Dean 
is exceeding her authority 
because of nile 10, clause six 
of the union's rule book. It 
states: “No member who is 
not working at the trade 
(excluding unemployed mem- 
bers seeking work at the trade) 
will be entitled to vote.” 

If the militants prevail, it 
means that many farmer 
employees of the company 
who have now got jobs else- 
where will be effectively pre- 
vented from taking part in the 
ballot. Miss Dean and her 
national officers would hope 
to counteract the activists by 
receiving registers of members 
from the branches and send- 
ing. ballot papers to those 
entitled to vote through the 
post. 

In any event the offer from 
News International is for the 
moment frozen as the TUC 
has rejected a request from the 
company to conduct or mon- 
itor a new balloting process. 
News International made the 


request after stating it had 
“little or no confidence" in tbe 
voting system instigated by 
Sogat ’82. 

Mr Bill O'Neill, who has led 
News International's negotiat- 
ing team during the dispute, 
made it clear yesterday that 
the company would not sit 
down again with Sogat '82 
unless it was within the frame- 
work of the joint national 
council which would only 
come about with a satisfactory

A “score card" system is to 
be devised by paediatricians 
to help mothers notice illness 
in their babies and reduce 
Britain's annual 1,500 cot 
deaths 

A £75.000 appeal was 
launched by the Foundation 
for the Study of Infant Deaths 
yesterday to fund a three-year 
research project under Dr 
Colin Morley. a consultant 
paediatrician at 

Addenbrooke's Hospital, 
Cambridge. 

The study is designed to 
speed up the detection of 
symptoms in the home and 
will cover 1,000 babies under 
six months old. 

All babies admitted to 
Addenbrooke's as emergency 
cases will be followed up ana 
compared with a control 
group or healthy babies to 
assess the importance of a 
range of symptoms. 

A statistical analysis of the 
findings will result in the 
production of a “score card” 
of symptoms which a mother 
could then use to assess 
whether her baby is ill before 
deciding whether to dll in the

out which are the important 
signs of illness which mothers 
and others caring for babies

cal Care Research Unix at 
Sheffield University for the 
Department of Health.

The Department of Health 
study found that coroners lad

for only nine of the 988 cot 
deaths although a further in- 
vestigation suggested there 
might have been another 15 -

parents for sometimes failing

three cases involving babies 
who subsequently died. 

Dr Morley said: “At the 
moment mothers often go by 
their experience, intuition and 
knowledge of their babies to 
decide if ft is ill and how 
seriously. In many cases that 
is perfectly adequate but not 
always." 

In 26 per cent of children 
admitted to hospital during 
the course of their terminal

concluded there bad been

Solicitors worried 
about drugs Bill 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The Law Society is to raise 
with the Home Office the 
question of solicitors* liability 
to prosecution under govern- 
ment proposals to tackle drag 
trafficking which start coming 
into force today. 

The new “laundering" of- 
fence means that anyone 
knowingly assisting with the 
retention, control or invest- 
ment of drug trafficking pro- 
ceeds could be liable to confis- 
cation orders. 

Banks, accountants and 
other advisers, such as solic- 
itors, are given statutory pro- 
tection if they volunteer to the 
authorities suspicions about 
their clients' finances where 
these appear to be connected 
with drug trafficking, so that 
they cannot be sued for that 
disclosure. 

The Government proposes 
in the Criminal Justice Bill to 
extend the provision to all 
other serious ' crime where 
large profits are reaped and 
the Law Society is concerned 
about the position of solicitors 
if they know or suspect a 
client's assets may have been 
derived from serious crime. 

A spokesman said: “The 
same statutory protection for 
advisers as exists with drug 


trafficking may well apply in 
the Criminal Justice Bill to 
other offences. But that would 
destroy the traditional confi- 
dential nature of the solid tor- 
client relationship. 

The Law Society is to raise 
several other issues with the 
Home Office prior to the Bill's 
publication. It is strongly op- 
posed to any obligatory disclo- 
sure of the defence case to the 
prosecution, as recommended 
by the Roskill committee on 
fraud trials. 

The Government is certain 
to indude this provision in the 
BflL dong with other Roskill 
proposals to reform trial pro- 
cedure, because it has dropped 
the controversial proposal to 
scrap jury trials for complex 
fraud. - 

Under the government pro- 
posals penalties would be 
imposed for failure of lawyers 
to .-disclose their case. That 
would lead id judges inquiring 
as to who is to Name for the 
non-disclosure, the lawyers or 
the client the sodety says. 

The sodety is also urging 
the Home Office to include 
another clause in the Bill: ft 
wants assaults on police to be 
made triable by jury. • 


Remand 

changes 

opposed 

Government, proposals to 
abolish weekly remand bear- 
ings and replace them with 
hearings every 28 days have 
been opposed by the London 
Criminal Courts Solicitors 
Association (Our Legal Af- 
fairs Correspondent writes ). 

In its response to die legal 
aid scrutiny report, the associ- 
ation says (tot “because of the 
pressures on all involved in the 
criminal courts, there is a 
grave risk that those who are 
detained in enstody win be 
overlooked mile** they are 
regularly before 


There is no substantial ev- 
idence of abase by defendants 
at the present rime, it says. 

If the proposal was im- 
plemented, the association 
says, it would be “essential" 
that there was a duty on the 
prosecution to notify any 
change of drcnmstances. 

The association also criti- 
cizes the report's proposals to 
transfer the job of giving free 
legal advice from solicitors to 
advice workers. Many of the 
suggestions are “impractical 
or will lead to increased 
costs", it says.

Walkers protest over 
‘forbidden Britain’ 

By Hngh Dayton, Environment Correspondent 


Walkers are ready to tres- 
pass on private land to claim 
the right to roam across 
“forbidden Britain,” the 
Ramblers' Association said 
yesterday. 

It demanded laws allowing 
the public on to all open 
countryside including cliffs, 
mountains, heathland, moors 
and foreshore. 

“We do claim rights to walk 
over other people's land," Mr 
David Rubinstein, chairman 
of the association, said. 

He explained. "We claim 
that we have the right to walk 
in two places. One is where 
there is evidence of a public 
right of way and the other is 
open country' where walkers 


would not affect the 
countryside.” 

Lord Melchett, a former 
Labour minister who is now 
vice-president of the associ- 
ation, said there was strong 
public demand for greater 
access to the countryside. He 
added that the association, 
which has more than 50,000 
members, would hold a “day 
of protest" next Sunday with 
rallies outside patches of 
countryside that are barred to 
walkers. Some of the 
demonstrations might involve 
trespass. 

The Country Landowners’ 
Association said it was op- 
posed to legal rights of public 
access to all open countryside. 


Pub bomb plot denied 


Thomas Maguire, the al- 
leged IRA conspirator, 
claimed at the Central Crim- 
inal Court yesterday that he 
was “in the dark" about a plot 
to blow up a public house near 
an Army base in Blackpool. 

Mr Maguire, aged 27, 
admitted walking around 
Weeion camp and having a 
drink at the Eagle and Child 
Inn— the alleged target— but 
told the jury he was not a 
member of any organization. 

Mr Maguire denied using 
code words in correspondence 


seized by police. 

Mr Maguire, from Donegal, 
was living in Milboume 
Street. Blackpool, when he 
was arrested under the 
Prevention of Terrorism Act 
last year. 

He denies conspiring be- 
tween January 1982 and April 
1983 with the Brighton 
bomber. Patrick Magee. Pat- 
rick Murray and others to 
cause an explosion at the 
public house. 

The hearing continues. 


BA must reveal more 
about cut-price fares 

By Harvey Elliott, Air Correspondent 


New moves to prevent Brit- 
ish Airways from "swamping” 
Britain’s booming holiday 
market are planned by the 
Government. 

Mr John Moore. Secretary 
of State for Transport, has 
ordered the Civil Aviation 
Authority to work out detailed 
proposals which would force 
BA. and other scheduled carri- 
ers. to disclose for more 
information about the num- 
ber of holidaymakers they 
carry on scheduled routes 

Although there is no ev- 
idence that BA has been 
unscrupulous “effective safe- 
guards against anti-compet- 
itive behaviour and predatory 
pricing are essential to the 
success of the Government s 
airline competition policy" 
according to the department. 


The new plans come after 
representations from Britan- 
nia Airways that BA's size, its 
Heathrow-based network of 
routes and its ability to swap 
aircraft and crews with its 
charter subsidiary, British 
Airtours. gave it huge advan- 
tages. Britannia asked the 
CAA to vary BA's licences 

Although Mr Moore has 
formally dismissed 
Britannia's appeal, he has 
followed it with a series of new 
proposals which, if . im- 
plemented. will ease the 
airline's worries. 

One of the main proposals 
is that “information be pub- 
lished to enable airlines and 
interested parries to 
one another's 


other 
monitor 
activities.' 


PC jailed for 
biting ear has 
bail refused 

Richard Johnson, the po- 
liceman jailed for six months 
for biting off part of another 
officer's ear during a rugby 
match was refused bail by a 
High Court judge yesterday. 

Mr Justice Garland refused 
bail at a private hearing, 
which means the constable, 
aged 31. must stay in jail while 
his lawyers seek an early ap- 
peal against the sentence. 

When Judge John Rutter 
jailed him at Cardiff Crowo 
Court last week he condemn- 
ed the PC for a “dreadful ex- 
ample of football hooligan- 
ism". 

The jury found he delib- 
erately sank his teeth into the 
ear of PC Keith Jones, aged 
40. after fighting broke out 
during a police derby match 
between Cardi 
forces.

Nairne is 
tipped for 
top BBC 
position 

By Gavin Bell 
Arts Correspondent 

Sir Patrick Nairne professes 
himself to be intrigued, but 
sceptical, about speculation 
that he may be invited to 
succeed the late Mr Stuart 
Young as BBC chairman. 

The former Civil Servant, 
now Master of St Catherine's 
College. Oxford, said yes- 
terday he had not been ap~ 

J troached about the position, 
or which he considered him- 
self “a most unlikely choice". 

He declined to comment on 
how he would react to any 
offer to lake up what was. 
“Clearly an exceedingly im- 
portant job”. 

Sir Patrick, aged 65. has an 
intimate knowledge of the 
television industry at exec- 
utive level as vice-chairman of 
the West Midlands board of 
Central TV. His impeccable 
credentials, after he ended a 
long Whitehall career in 1981 
as permanent secretary at the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security, are also said to 
be in his favour. 

A shortlist of candidates is 
known to have been drafted 
since Mr Young died of cancer 
last month, but the Prime 
Minister's Office and the BBC 
have given no clues to its 
contents. 

Speculation had focused on 
Lord King of Wartnaby. the 
British Airways chairman, 
and Lord Barnett, who was 
appointed BBC vice-chairman 
on August I. 

Mrs Thatcher is said to 
favour Lord King, who has 
transformed the commercial 
prospects of the stale airline. 
However, some BBC exec- 
utives are concerned that he 
might pay more attention to 
efficiency than creativity. 
They would prefer the Labour 
peer, who is committed to the 
corporation's independence. 



A civil engineer, a houswife, 
a solicitor and a window 
cleaner are among the winners 
of yesterday’s Portfolio Gokl 
prize of £4.000. 

Mr Adrian Keacb, aged 43, 
from Kettering Us North- 
amptonshire, who has been a 
regular player since tire game 
started, said: “I always do it on 
the train to London, but my 
colleagues used to call it a 
waste of lime. “I felt incredu- 
lous when I realized that my 
total matched The Times Port- 
folio dividend." 

Mr Reach, who is a civil 
engineer, said the win would 
enable his family to visit his 
sister in Georgia in the US. 

Mrs Patricia Harris, aged 
54. a housewife, from Eastern 
Green, Coventry, said she 
would spend her prize money 
on a weekend break with her 
son in London. 

Mr Michael Gardiner, a 
solicitor from Stourbridge, 
West Midlands, said he re- 
alized that he was a winner 30 
minutes before the daily 
claims deadline. 

The other winners were Mr 
Michael Howard, aged 49, a 
window cleaner from south 
Loudon; Mrs Enid Ellis from

CLIMBS THE NORTH 
FACE OF THE EIGER. 


"ft wasn't a doddle, it was difficult, but a big 
relief to have done it on my own ’’ 

Mr Davis is a master of understatement. 
With arthritis in his joints, he didn’t climb the 
26 steps up to his flat just because they were 
there. He had no choice. 

“Of course going down is worse in a way 
because you can see how far there is to fall. But 
at least home is at the top, so the worst is going 
out - not getting back.” 

Over one and a half million old people in 
Britain suffer from arthritis. Besides the pain, 
it takes away their mobility. As everyday 
obstacles — steps, keys, kerbstones - become 
a major chailenge, friends, family, shops, the 
community at large, ail move slowly out of 
reach. 

“The lady at the Day Hospital told me to 
concentrate. What you do is hands first, grip the 
rail, then move your opposite foot Then you rest 
It’ll never be quicker than ten minutes, but if 
there’s one thing you learn with these creaking 
bones, its patience ” 

Help the Aged supports Day Hospitals 
and other practical projects that combat the 
vulnerability, isolation and loneliness that lack 
of mobility brings to old people. We help fund 
Day Centres, minibuses - for thousands, their 
sole link with the outside world -and provide 
emergency alarms to those living at risk from

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1986 


LABOUR PARTY CONFERENCE 


Economy debate • Housing rights • Ulster pact • South Atnca 


Exchange controls 
promised to 
stop capital loss 


An incoming Labour Gov- 
ernment would implement an 
exchange controls policy de- 
signed not only to slop capital 
flowing out of Britain but to 
bring back much of the money 
exported abroad over the past 
seven years. Mr Roy 
Hattersley. deputy leader of 
the Labour Party and Shadow 
Chancellor, told the party 
conference at Blackpool 
yesterday. 

He rejected calls during the 
debate on the economy for the 
reimposition of the type of 
statutory exchange controls 
which existed from 1939 to 
1979. arguing that they would 
be much loo easy to avoid. 

He repeated Labour's 
pledge lo reduce unemploy- 
ment by about a million in 
two years but emphasized that 
that would not be easy. Huge 
investment would be needed 
in the infrastructure and in 
manufacturing industry in or- 
der to get Britain tack to 
work. 

He said that all local 
authorities should be prepar- 
ing plans for capital works in 
readiness for the money that 
would bo available when a 
Labour Government was 
elected. 

Mr Rodney Bickerstaffe, 
general secretary 1 of the Na- 
tional Union of Public 
Employees, said the next elec- 
tion would be won or lost on 
Labour's economic policy and 
a Labour government would 
stand or fall on its record of 
jobs. 

He was proposing a 
composite resolution calling 
for a jobs programme aimed at 
cutting unemployment by one 
million within two years as the 
first step to restoring full 
employment. 

The resolution also pro- 
posed a plan for industry 
based on the hill and demo- 
cratic parlication of the 
workforce, together with 
investment through a new 
British Investment bank, di- 
rected bank lending and new 
public enterprise initiatives 
led by a national enterprise 
board and local ones. 

Mr Bickers taffe saidrlf we 
cannot get people back to 
work in large numbers we will 
have failed — We have got to 
gel our economic policies 
correct."

that the economy was on

Sanctions 
‘the best 


answer 


The shadow Foreign Sec- 
retary. Mr Denis Healey, said 
in Blackpool yesterday that on 
his recent visit to South Africa 
he found powerful black and 
multiracial organizations in 
the trade unions, political 
parties and townships which 
were building up the basis for 
a majority black government 
within not many years from 

now. 

Mr Healey, who was speak- 
ing at a Labour Party con- 
ference fringe meeting, said he 
regretted that the Foreign and 
Commonwealth Secretary, Sir 
GeotTrey Howe, on his ill- 
starred visit to South Africa, 
went through Sowcro in five 
minutes in a sealed limousine 
w ith the windows up. 

Had he come into visual 
contact with ‘the reality of 
apartheid he could not have 
failed to change his position. 

“If we have any hope of 
shortening the agony and 
reducing the bloodshed it 
must be as a result of sus- 
tained pressure from the out- 
side world through san- 
ctions". Mr Healey said. 

"One of the things I was 
totally convinced of on my 
recent visit was (hat by far the 
best answer to the problem 
would be comprehensive 
mandatory sanctions through 
the United Nations. They 
would bite hard and fast, 
shortening the agony." 

Rut such sanctions required 
a motion passed in the Se- 
curity Council. Every such 
motion put to the United 
Nations had been vetoed by 
America and Britain, although 
the pressure was now building 
up ‘ 

“So far one of the most 
effective economic pressures 
on South Africa has come 
from the many companies, 
especially \merican. which 
have been compelled by the 
institutions which invest in 
them or by their own 
shareholders to take their 
ntonev out of South Africa.” 


just one of Edwina Currie's 
ignorant northerners. Her line 
is. “Let them eat statistics’.” 

The economy had been 
turned upside down by 
Conservative values that put 
company shares before peo- 
ple. competition before co- 
operation, profit before 
people. 

The Government had in- 
vested twice as much last year 
overseas as in manufacturing 
at home. Was it right that last 
year more was spent on de- 
fence than on educating chil- 
dren; was it right the rich got

Move to 
back 
pact on 
Ulster 


By Martin Fletcher 
Political Reporter 


Mr David Blanket!, of Sheffield, and Mr NeO Emnock at the conference yesterday. 


THE ECONOMY 


election, said that he would 
use his little swan song to offer 
some avuncular advice to Mr 
Hattersley. 

“This rather fancy scheme 
yon have dreamed np for a 
bribe to some British investors 
into putting money into Great 
Britain, instead of abroad, just 
will not work. “Yon cannot 
dock out of exchange controls 
in that way”. 

Research in the past had 
shown that more than a third 
of British investment abroad 
had the effect of reducing 
employment in Great Britain. 


eight million workers sur- 
vived on poverty pay? 

The resolution meant there 
would be investment in build- 
ing. services, infrastructure. It 
was about partnership be- 
tween working people and the 
government to make sure 
Labour priorities became the 
people's priorities. 

Mr Stephen Hepburn, 
Jarrow, seconding the resolu- 
tion. said that on the fiftieth 
anniversary of the Jarrow 
march he was hoping to see 
history changed round. 

Unemployment in Jarrow 
had reached 8.000 and the job 
centre had only 143 jobs on 
offer. Of those vacancies, 80 
were through the community 
programme which was no 
better than the charitable 
schemes of the 1930s, he said. 

The greatest tragedy was for 
the young unemployed. By 
depriving them of jobs the 
Government was stealing the 
seed com of the future. 


“How can workers be ex- 
pected to have pride in the 
company and its image when 
that company can be the small 
change in a massive takeover 
without their involvement?" 

Mr Robin Cook, MP for 
Livingston and Labour Party 
campaign coordinator, said 
that at this year's conference 
there were resolutions on eco- 
nomic policy from half a 
dozen constituencies and only 
one trade union. If they 
wanted to be credible in 
putting jobs as their top 
priority they had to show 
more interest in economic 
policy than that. 

One of the messages they 
had to get across was that this 
was a rich country. This 
should have been an historic 
period of unprecedented 
prosperity, yet last month 
Britain had a record deficit in 
its balance of trade. 


Hattersley calls for renewal 


“We are currently training 
ne-lenth of the apprentices of 


one-tenth of the apprentices ot 
West Germany and barely as 
many as Switzerland”, he 
continued. 

Considering the way the 
Government had squandered 
the country's oil revenue it 
was the Conservatives and not 
Labour who should be on the 
defensive over ' public 
expenditure. 

If Britain could afford to 
double imports of champagne 
in the past three years it could 
afford a programme to give its 
unemployed work. The next 
Labour government was going 
to have to change those 
warped priorities. 


Mr Roy Hattersley, the 
Shadow Chancellor, said Mr 
Nigel Lawson, the Chancellor 
of the Exchequer, never made 
speeches defendiag the 
Government's economic 
policy. 

That was not surprising. 
Under Mr Lawson's steward- 
ship Britain had the highest 
unemployment in history, the 
worst balance of trade, the 
highest interest rates, the most 
bankruptcies and the lowest 
value of sterling. 

Let there be no doubt about 
the central pillar of Labour's 
economic strategy. “Labour is 
the party of oetpnt, the party 
of investment, the party of 
exports and the party of 
production. 

“ Above all other things, 
Labour is the party of jobs. 
Our first task Is to repeat the 
pledge we made last year- that 
a Labour Government will 
reduce unemployment by 
about one million in its first 
two years. 


To go on entring jobs in the 
second half of the next Par- 
liament, they needed to rescue 
and revive manufacturing in- 
dustry. After seven years of 
Conservatism, manufacturing 
industry was in a state m 
almost terminal collapse. 

Men and women in the City 
had held a Dutch auction of 
the country's nationalized in- 
dustries and sold off precious 
assets at millions below proper

The gap left after North Sea 
oQ had gone could only be 
filled by investment First 
investment was needed in 
essential public sector capital -

whole economy depended - and 
then in new investment m

“We will ntal-p sore British 
money now invested overseas 
is invested back home here in 
Britain. We need exchange 
controls." 

But they could not be 
recreated in the old form, the 


form that survived from 1939 
to 1979. People would get 
around them in 10 minutes

“What we need and what we 
are going to have is a new 
exchange control policy which 
not only keeps British money 
in Britain but actually brings 
back modi of the money that 
has been exported into foreign 
economies over the last seven 
years." 

The chairmen of the 
nationalized industries were 
preparing plans for new vital 
investment in the public sector 
which they intended to present 
to a new Labour government 
as soon as it was elected. 


Mr Stuart BdL a Labour 
Northern Ireland spokesman, 
criticized for agreeing to share 
a platform with a convicted 
IRA bomber tomorrow, is to 
use the occasion to deliver a 
ringing denunciation of vi- 
olence and of politicians who 
support it and 19 announce 
new measures that a Labour 
government would take 
against terrorism. 

His speech will be part of a 
wider offensive launched last 
night by himself and the 
shadow Northern Ireland sec- 
retary. Mr Peter Archer, de- 
signed to marginalize the 
vocal Troops Out movement 
on Labour's 1 eft and to swing 
the party firmly behind the 
.Anglo-Irish Agreement before 
the next election. 

On Thursday the Labour 
conference is expected 10 re- 
ject decisively two motions 
denouncing the Anglo-Irish 
agreement and calling for 
British troops to be 
withdrawn. 

But Mr Bell believes that it 
is not enough to depend on 
union block votes and that the 
front bench has to cany the 
battle to the militant 
minorities. 

Mr Archer opened the at- 
tack last night by arguing at a 
fringe meeting of the Par- 
liamentary Labour Party’s 
Northern Ireland Committee 
that the border dispute will 
never be solved by Britain 
walking away. 

The cornerstone of a future 
Labour government's North- 
ern Ireland policy would be 
the Anglo-Irish agreement 
which, argued Mr Bell, repre-

TRAINING 


MSC must come under 
‘democratic control’ 


The economics debate, 
centred on a national exec- 
utive committee report en- 
titled Labour the Party of 
Production. The report re- 
peated the Labour promise to 



reduce unemployment by a 
million in the first two years of 


million in the first two years of 
office as a first step towards 
regaining high and stable lev- 
els of employment in industry 
and services. 


It said that the level of 
economic growth needed for a 
healthy economy could be 
achieved only by a sharp 
revival in industrial output, 
manufacturing annd visible 
exports and by recapturing 
markets lost to imported 
goods. 

Economic expansion 
should not be achieved at the 
expense of working conditions 
or of the environment 

“Labour stands for 
plannned and responsible 
growth, achieved with full 
democratic participation.” 

A rejuvenated manufac- 
turing sector would have only 
a limited direct effect on 
reducing unemployment But 
it would help to make it 
possible for Labour to lake the 
measures needed to pul Brit- 
ain back to work, particularly 
by affording protection from 
balance of payments problems 
which expansion would other- 
wise create as North Sea oil 
output declined. It would 
create a parallel growth in the 
service sector. 


The conference passed, 
against the wishes of the NEC 
a composite motion moved by 
the Socialist Educational 
Association reaffirming the 
Deed for a 1988 education Act 

Miss Betty Boothroyd, MP, 
for the NEC, said that it was 
too restrictive in its call for 
new provision for education 
for 16-19 year-olds. 

But the conference by a 
| large majority preferred the 
I advice of Mrs Frances 
I Morrell, chairman of Inner 
! London Education Authority, 
who said they could not remit, 
as requested by the NEC, a 
motion which contained so 
many useful dements. 

Motions calling for in- 
creased investment in educa- 
tion and training were 
approved. 

Mr Robert Gillespie, Amal- 
gamated Union of Engineer- 
ing Workers (TassX Craft 
(Patternmakers) Sector, mov- 
ing a composite motion which 
particularly called for the 
Manpower Services Commis- 
sion to be brought under 
direct democratic control said 
they sought a wider breadth of 
training not only in traditional 
skills but in contemporary and 
future technology. 

Mr Steve Large, St Ives, 
seconding, said that it was 
absurd to wait for employers 
to provide the huge training 
programme needed. A skilled 
workforce was vital. 

Miss Kate Hoey, Co-op- 
erative Wholesale Society, 
moved a composite motion 


calling for increased public 
expenditure on civil rrsearch 
and development, and for 
consultation between the 
party and the CWS on the best 
way to teach co-operative 
matters. 

She said that for Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher a state educa- 
tion service was no longer 
necessary. They were wasting 
a generation and their chil- , 
dren were being abandoned, j 


consent Labour would seek 
harmanization of laws be- 
tween north and south, exam- 
ine ways of giving some form 
of devolution to Northern 
Ireland, study local govern- 
ment structures to achieve 
greater popular participation, 
stop strip searching and the 
use of rubber bullets, and

minster to ensure more atten- 
tion to Northern Ireland.

people will respect os for

They would certainly not 
respect Labour far appearing 
to fudge the Issue, and there is 
a widespread suspicion — 
naturally encouraged by the 
present government — that 
Labour's spending plaits have 
not been adequately costed. 
That would mean that in office 
Labour would not be able to 
confine the increases to rel-

HOUSING 


Delegates demand a Bill for housing rights 


The conference carried a 
motion urging the next Labour 
government to achieve its 
long-term objective to get a 
safe, secure and satisfactory 
home for all by preseating a 
housing rights Bill in the first 
session of a new Parliament.

a A second motion, proposed 
by the Union of Cwistrurtion. 
Allied Trades and Tech- 
nicians, reiterated the need for 
sustained and consistent 
investment in housing as part 
of a programme for economic 
regeneration and the creation 
of a secure framework for jobs. 

That investment would the 
motion stated, be based on a 
move towards public owner- 


ship of the construction in- 
dustry through the growth and 
extension of direct labour 
organizations and the repeal of 
legislation which hindered the 
growth of such organizations. 

Mr Syd Tierney, of the 
Union of Shop, Distributive 
and Allied Workers, vice- 
chairman of the Labour Ptuty, 
in recommending acceptance 
of the two motions, said a 
sustained programme of 
house-building was essential 
and was one of Labour's top 
priorities. The Government's 
cuts in public-sector bousing 
represented a policy of mad- 
ness. particularly at a time 
when so many construction 
workers were unemployed. 

Thousands of families, the 
homeless, die jobless _ and 
young people had no choice in 
housing. There was no choice 
for those living in the North of 
England, where the average 
price of a house was £25,000, 
who wanted to get work in the 
Sooth of England, where the 
average price was £64,000. 

Mr Jeffrey Rooker, MP for 
Birmingham Perry Barr and 
Opposition spokesman on 
boosing, said housing would 


form an important part of 
Labour's million jobs pro- 
gramme.' 

The legacy Labour would 
inherit would be “horren- 
dous". No fewer than two out 
of nine homes were either unfit 
or in need of substantial 
renovation. About four million 
families were involved, owners 
and tenants alike, and they 
were all in the misery together. 
Labour was the only party that 
would get them out of ft. 

Miss Jackie Rosenberg, 
Westminster North, com- 
plained that Mr Rooker had 
not been strong enongh in his 
opposition to clauses in the 
Housing and Planning Bill 
under which councils could 
sell off whole estates to private 
developers. , 

Tenants* groups were fight- 
ing to protect their rights of 
tenure. People were not 
ashamed to live in public- 
sector bousing and many ten- 
ants were fearful of Labour's 
view of public-sector housing. 

Mr Michael Connarty, par- 
liamentary candidate for Stir- 
ling. said the Government was 
the new Rachmann. All ten- 
ants, public and private. 


should have the right to repair. 
Tenants must also have the 
right to participate in the 
drawing up of housing plans. 

Miss Mary Page, par- 
liamentary candidate for Nor- 
folk Sooth West said action 
should be taken to prevent 
Tory county and district coun- 
cils obstructing the plans for 
housing that Labour would be 
seeking to implement Rural ' 
areas must be treated on a par 
with other areas. j 

Mr Nicholas RaynsfonL, I 
MP for Fulham, sa id that the j 
deplorable record of the Tory ! 
Government was symbolized ! 
by the increasing use iff bed 
and breakfast holds, usually 
squalid and certainly destruc- 
tive of family life and even 
more expensive than building 
new council houses for the

that ensured investment 'in

coal-fired power stations and 
those studies would come to 
fruition over the next few 
months. 

The studies were not 
primarily based 6 n political 
considerations but on the view 
that it was the board’s duty to 
“work forward the altern- 
atives". 

■ Later Mr Baker told report- 
ers that on any basis the 
CEGB needed to order six or 
seven power stations to be in 
operation by the year 2,000 
and that meant ordering by 
1994. His judgement was that 
they should be a mix of coal 
and nuclear.

Institute for Fiscal Studies has 
concluded that Labour’s im- 
mediate programme has been 
realistically costed, while the 
remaining pledges are likely to 
be expensive. 

One can look at that, how- 
ever, the other way round. The 
more firmly Labour is commit- 
ted not to raise the standard 
rate of income tax, the less it 
will be able to do. That, I 
suspect, is what Mr Blunkett 
has in mind. 

His distinctive position in 
Labour politics needs to be 
appreciated. He is a politically 
asttute and eloquent soft left 
member of the party's Na- 
tional Executive Committee 
who often seems to regard it as 
bis role to buikl bridges to the 
far left. 

That is what he tried to do 
with the Liverpool militants at 
Bournemouth last year, and he 
seems now to be sending 
another signal to the far left. 
He appears to be pressing Mr 
Hattersley not to be inhibited 
in making “a credible drive for 
socialism” by fear of potting 
up the standard rate of income 
tax. 

What if Mr Hattersley had 
failed now to reaffirm the 
pledge on standard rate? How 
damaging would it be in the 
election if it were widely 
believed that under Labour 
most income taxpayers would 
be paying more? 


Electoral- 

danger 


A little while ago I would 
have had no doubt that ft 
would have been elect orally 
disastrous. Now I think the 
position is a little more com- 
plicated. There is a good deal 
of evidence that lower taxation 
is no longer the overriding 

priority. 

Most people are more con- 
cerned to improve standards in 
education and health. If that 
means, putting up taxes a bit, 
so be it. People are prepared

support the electricity system. 
They were also looking at sites 
m the Midlands and the 
North. 

If the n udear power stations 
were to be phased out in the 
1990s there would have to be 
13 or 14 new coal-fired 
stations. 

Mr Baker said that he was 
extremely worried about the 
cost of phasing out nuclear 
power and suggested that the 
pnee of deciricity would be 
between 25 and 50 per cent 
higher over a 25-year period. 

Phasing out could be man- 
aged, but not without loss of 
light if it were to be carried out 
in five years.

I am very doubtful, however, 
if that indicates a new era of 
electoral compassion. I won- 
der if those who say in opinion 
polls that they would be 
prepared to pay more on 
standard rate for the relief of 
poverty would really be so 
willing when it came to the 
point. 

There is. 1 believe, an 
electoral danger for Labour 
and also for the SDP with its 
ambitious plan for the merging 
of tax and benefits in assuming 
a greater fond of public com- 
passimi than actually exists.

unlikely t0 win the election 
simply with a programme for

Parties could lose the election 
with plans for higher taxes.

Roy Hattersley has run into 
some criticism at Blackpool 
for not being sufficiently rad- 
ical as Shadow Chancellor. 

He was attacked by more 
than one speaker in the 
ccoomic debate yesterday for 
not being prepared to reirapose 
exchange controls, and the day 
before he came under fire from 
David Blunkett, the leader of 
Sheffield City Council for 
promising that Labour's plans 
could be implemented without 
raising the standard rate of 
income tax. 

Mr Hattersley rejected both 
criticisms, but he showed him- 
self to be particularly sensitive 
to Mr Blunkett's charge. That 
is understandable. Exchange 
controls arc a somewhat ab- 
struse subject of economic 
debate: taxation may well be 
one of the principal issues in 
the next general election.

Call for more black 
judges to build trust 
of minority in courts 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 
Immediate action is needed The committee recom- 16.3 per cent of victims of 


to combat the “disastrous” 
racial discrimination in the 
criminal justice system, 
according to a committee 
which includes repre- 
sentatives of magistrates, jus- 
tices clerks ana probation 
officers. 

Unless the system is fair, the 
committee says in a report 
published yesterday, respect 
for the law among young black 
people disappears and the 
temptation to diregard it 
increases. 

Home Office statistics show 
that the proportion of black 
male prisoners is double that 
of comparable age groups in 
the general population. 

The proportion of black 
female prisoners is even 
higher. Yet black prisoners 
have substantially fewer pre- 
vious convictions than white 
prisoners.

confidence in the way they are 
treated in the courts." the

commitment to the appoint- 
ment of more black judges and 
should develop a more pos- 
itive approach to recruiting 
black magistrates. 

The report says that more 
should be done to recruit 
black people into the proba- 
tion service at all levels. At

the proportions rose to 16.S

respectively. 

Although Sir Kenneth New-

Commissioner, in 1985 tar- 
geted Tacial attacks as a prior- 
ity for action and the 
Association of Chief Police 
Officers issued guidance to all

Court asked to vary 
Nirex injunctions 


Anti-nuclear protest gro 
asked a High Court judge 
yesterday to vary injunctions 
granted to Nirex, the atomic 
waste agency. 

They claim the injunctions 
restraining them from stop- 
ping test drilling on three of 
the proposed nuclear dump 
sites are too wide because all 
those associated with them, 
including the Bishop of Lin- 
coln and Mr Austin Mitchell, 
MP for Great Grimsby, and 
the Women's Institute could 
find themselves liable to 
damages. 

Mr Justice Henry is being 
asked to restrict the injunc- 
tions to named defendants of 
the Lincolnshire Against 
Nuclear Dumping and the 
Humberside Against Nuclear 
Dumping groups. 

The injunctions granted 
earlier this month encom; 
ail those “associated or 
ated with" the groups. 

Mrs Vera Baud, counsel for 
the two groups, said that in 
obtaining the injunctions 
Nirex had “caused serious 


worry, indeed flight to fam- 
ilies in the counties". 

Nirex is testing four sites, 
Elstow, Bedfordshire, 
Killingholme, Humberside, 
Fulbeck, Lincolnshire, and 
BradweQ on Sea, Essex. 

The hearing continues 
today. 

• Anglian Water has ap- 
pointed a team of experts to. 
protect water interests when 
Nirex begins drilling to deter- 
mine the suitability of four 
sites for the disposal of low- 
level radioactive waste. 

The water authority, which 
is responsible for water* sup- 
plies to 10L500 square miles 
between the Humber and the 
Thames, wants to know 
whether it will prove dan- 
gerous to porous water bearing 
rocks, 

Mr Bernard Henderson, 
chairman of Anglian Water, 
said yesterday the authority 
was determined to obtain its 
own independent and impar- 
tial advice as it was vitally 
important that, customers 
should be reassured. 


Courts hit 
by roof 
protest 

A continuing rooftop pro- 
test by prisoners at Risley 
Remand Centre in Cheshire 
led yesterday to the cancella- 
tion of all services to the 
courts and prison visits. 

The- administrative diffi- 
culties for courts in the North- 
west and North Wales came 
when 101 prisoners from 
Risley failed to arrive for 
hearings after the remand 
centre's governor announced 
the cancellation. 

The rooftop protest, which 
began on Saturday, is against 
overcrowding. At first, 18 
prisoners occupied the roof. 
By yesterday morning there 
were 10 still there. 

Yesterday Risley should 
have sent 14 prisoners to face 
trial, 74 for remand and 13 for 
an appearance in court. 

The Home Office said there 
had been three small cell fires 
at the centre but that all were 
quickly contained with mini- 
mum damage. 








Britain's oldest identical twins, Marion (left) ami Isabella Weir, of Longridge, West Lothi-

Acid rain:2 


Caution on plant effects 


Dr Nigel Bell is an expert on 
the impact of acid rain on 
plants. “It should by now be 
clear," he told environmental 
health officers from local 
councils at their national con- 
ference this month, “that our 
understanding of the im- 
portance of air pollution in 
reducing the performance of 
vegetation in the United King- 
dom is at a very elementary 
stage." 

It is all very well saying that 
acid rain damages plants, but 
so do many other things. 
Frost, drought, the nature of 
the soil and attacks by moulds 
and insects all play their parts. 

As several of them occur 
together, it becomes harder 
than ever to decide exactly 
what is making a plant suffer. 
It becomes even harder if the 
attack is coming either from 
acid rain or directly from 
smoke-borne gases. 

At least if the plant is being 
weakened by insects that nib- 
ble it or nest on it the culprits 
can usually be seen and their 
work identified. The neat term 
“arid rain" implies that the 
thing is consistent and un- 


Scieiuists blame acid rain for killing trees and fish. Bui 
as Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent, reports 
in the second of four articles, householders should 
pause before looking for its effects in their flower bor- 
ders and g

changing. In fact the aridity of 
rain falling on one patch of 
land can vary enormously 
through the seasons. 

That helps to explain the 
caution of scientists who in-

West of 
Scotland 
is hit by 
tremor 

An earthquake shook a 
3.000 square mile area of the 
west coast of Scotland early 
Yesterday. Nobody was hurt 
but there were reports of 
household objects being top- 
pled by the vibrations. 

The British Geological Sur- 
vey centre in Edinburgh said 
the epicentre of the tremor, 
measured 3-5 on the Richter 
Scale, was at Loch Unnhe, 
near Oban. 

Earthquakes of this mag- 
nitude. or greater, are fell on 
average three times a year in 
Britain. Yesterday’s earth- 
quake. which happened at 
2.33am. lasted for about 20 
seconds. 

Police, who received 30 
calls from the public, said 
There were no reports of 
structural damage. 

Mrs Maureen Ritchie, a 
seismologist at the geological 
centre, said that several trem- 
ors. each between one and two 
on the Richter Scale, have 
been recorded in that area 
during the past year. 

She added: “We believe 
they are connected with the 
Great Glen fault" 

The most severe earthquake 
to be measured by in- 
struments in Britain was at 
Llcyn Penn. North Wales, in 
Julv 1984. which reached 5.4. 


Stranded 
fans to 
take legal 
action 

By David Sapsted 

A group of Northern Irish 
football supporters said yes- 
terday that they would take 
legal action against Sealink 
for banning them from travel- 
ling on a ferry back to the 
province. 

The captain of the Stran- 
raer- Larne ferry, the Galloway 
Princess, refused to sail on 
Sunday night with the group of 
42 “loyalists" on board, claim- 
ing some of them were drunk. 

As part of a clamp down on 
football hooligans, Sealink 
refuses to carry any supporters 
across the Irish Sea who might 
be “a danger to themselves or 
other passengers", a spokes- 
man said yesterday. 

The group returned yes- 
terday morning without in- 
cident on another Sealink fer- 
ry, the Si David. 

Mr Kenneth Kerr, one of the 
organizers of the trip to Scot- 
land to support Rangers, said 
solicitors would demand 
compensation from Sealink.

Undergraduates killed 
in Alps snowstorm 


Two inseparable school 
friends who went on to be- 
come Cambridge undergrad- 
uates have died together in a 
freak snowstorm in the Alps. 

The students were experi- 
enced mountaineers and left 
Cambridge three weeks ago 
determined to climb Mom 
Blanc. 

- But a mountain rescue team 
found the body of Mr James 
Perron, aged 21 . a second-year 
’medical student at Jesus Col- 
lege, 4.400 metres up a slope 
in the Aosta Valley after a 
snowstorm. He is thought to 
have died of hypothermia. 

There was no sign of his 
friend, Mr David Howie, also 
aged 21, a first-year engineer- 
ing student at St John's. His 
parents have been told by 
French mountain rescuers 
that the search for him has 
been abandoned and he is 
presumed to be dead. 

Mr Perron, the son of a fish 
merchant, was from 
Swaffham Bui beck, near Cam- 


bridge. He was awarded a first- 
class pass in pan lb of the 
medical tripos examination at 
Cambridge in the summer and 
had just been elected by his 
college to a foundation 
scholarship for his third year 
due to beginnext month. 

He was described yesterday 
as a “quite outstanding" 
medical student. 

Mr Howie, due to begin his 
second year, was also de- 
scribed as a “very fine 
student" and was the son of a 
Churchill College don. 

Their home is in Hunting- 
don Road, Cambridge. They 
had climbed in the Pyrenees 
and crossed Spit 2 bergen 
together. 

Mrs Isobel Perron said last 
night: “We begged James not 
to go near Mont Blanc because 
of its reputation, but he re- 
assured us they were highly 
experienced mountaineers 
and said they were determined 
to go."

Chernobyl restarts one 
' of remaining reactors 
in face of energy crisis 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1986 


OVERSEAS NEWS 




The Soviet authorities an- 
nounced last night that the 
first of the four original 1 ,000- 
jnegawatt reactors at the 
Chernobyl plant had been 
restarted yesterday, some five 
months after the explosion 
that caused the world's worst 
nuclear disaster. 

. Mr ViuUy Sklyarov, min- 
ister of electrification and 
power engineering in -the 
Ukraine, said that the next 
stage in restarting the plant 
would be the resumption of 
commercial electricity gener- 
ation. 


unseasonable blizzard yes- 
terday, Praxda carried a 
gloom-laden front-page lead- 
ing article giving warning of 
the difficulties ahead and call- 
ing for a sweeping energy 
conservation drive by both 
domestic and industrial con- 
sumers. 

It is the second time this 
month that the paper has 
lashed out against the energy 
sector for failing to prepare the 
counuy adequately for a win-

LOME (Renter) - Guerril- 
las accused of attempting to 
overthrow President Eyadema 
of Togo said yesterday that 
they were recruited in Ghana 
and armed and trained in 
Burkina Faso. 

Mr Kpotivi Teri-Pfijogbe 
Lade, the Minister of the 
Interior, presented the cap- 
tives at a news conference. He 
said they claimed they were 
ordered to kill Mr Eyadema 
and install Mr Gilchrist 
Olympio. 

If Mr Eyadema had been 
killed in the coup attempt, 
about 200 troops from Burkina 
Faso, which borders Togo to 
the north, would hare provided 
support to the new regime, Mr 
Lacle said. 

He added that the plan was 
to set up a 10-member pro- 
visional council for Togolese 
redemption. 


capacity of 6.5 million kilo- 
wait hours had been sched- 
uled for completion in the fust 
eight months of the year. 

Commenting on the article, 
a senior Western energy , 
specialist said thal one reason 
for the delays was the involve- 
ment of so many experts and 
so much specialized machin- 
ery and capital in the huge and i 
still unfinished dean-up at 
Chernobyl. 

Yesterday Tass disclosed ! 
that 4.500 square miles ofland 
around the plant in the 
Ukraine had been examined 
for contamination since the 
explosion. Stage two of the 
investigation had begun re- 
cently. spread even farther 
afield to pinpoint any “dirty 
spots" outside the immediate 
exclusion zone. 

According to Western es- 
timates, Soviet electricity 
consumption can vary by 
more 15 per cent between 
summer and winter, allowing 
a lot of slack in the grid to cope 
with the immediate aftermath 
of the disaster. The early onset 
of the winter, however, has cut 
this margin of spare capacity. 

Praxda said yesterday that 
peak-hour rationing had been 
introduced morning and eve- 
ning in parts of the Ukraine.

By-election shock 
for Ozal Cabinet 

From RasR Gnrdflek, Ankara 


Mr Suleyman Demirel. the 
leader of the True Path Party, 
the real winner of Sunday's 
by-elections for 1 1 seats in the 
Turkish Parliament, yesterday 
called for an early general 
election to add to the troubles 
of Mr Tuigm Ozal. the Prime 
Minister. 

The True Path Party, not 
allowed to enter the general 
elections in 1983. won four 
seats, displacing in the process 
the opposition Social Demo- 
crats to become the second 
biggest party. 

The main opposition Social 
Democratic Populist Party 
won a single seat as the votes 
were split by the rival Demo- 
cratic Left Party supported by 
Mr Bulent Ecevit, who. like 
Mr Demirel, has been defying 
his political restrictions to 
campaign in the poll. 


Mr Ecevit. however, has 
been less successful than Mr 
Demirel. as the Democratic 
Left Party failed to dear the 
10-per cent hurdle necessary 
to win a seat. 

Although the ruling Moth- 
erland Party of Mr Ozal 
secured six seats to boost to 
237 its majority in the 400- 
member Parliament, it saw its 
electoral support dwindle by a 
quarter to 32 per ant 

Addressing a press con- 
ference yesterday, Mr Demirel 
insisted that the Ozal Govern- 
ment could not be allowed to 
stay in power for two more 
years. He also attacked the 
political restrictions imposed 
on him and other politicians 
which, he said, “created a 
barrier in front of the national 
will.- 


Brussels 
bomb 
hurts two 

From Richard Owen 
Brussels 

An explosion ripped 
through a Masonic Lodge in 
central Brussels in the early 
hours of yesterday morning, 
injuring two people and caus- 
ing extensive damage. 

The bombing, thought by 
Belgian police to be a terrorist 
attack, came only a few days 
after EEC Interior Ministers 
had agreed at their emergency 
London summit to tighten up 
co-ordination of die European 
fight against terrorism in the 
wake of the recent Paris 
bombs. 

Immediate suspicion fell on 
the Belgian terrorist group, 
the Fighting Communist Oils 
(CCC). although police 
emphasized that no one had 
claimed responsibility for the 
blast and there was- no hard 
evidence that the CCC was 
hghind it 

Four CCC ringleaders — 
including M Pierre Carrette, 
the CCC mastermind — were 
arrested in a dramatic police 
raid at the end of last year. But 
Belgium has been bracing 
itself for a recurrence of 
terrorism by Iowa- level mem- 
bers of the CCC, which re- 
ceives. arms from Action 
Directe, the French terrorist 
group espousing a similar 
anarchistic form of Marxism. 

Eye witnesses said a car had 
drawn np outside the Grand 
Orient Lodge, headquarters 
for about 80 Masonic lodges, 
and one or more terrorists had 
leapt out placing a suitcase of 
explosives at the Lodge en- 
trance before driving oft 

One man was cat by Hying 
glass from the explosion and 
another person was slightly 
injured. 


Family feud across Ciskei and Transkei homelands 

Xhosa power clash flares over kidnap 


From Michael Hornsby 
East London 

A power struggle has broken 
out between Souih Africa's 
two Xhosa-speaking tribal 
homelands of Ciskei and 
Transkei. and within Ciskei's 
ruling Scbc clan in the Eastern 
Cape, traditionally known as 
the oldest centre of the 
country's black-white conflict. 

The* Ciskei Government 
spokesman. Mr Headman 
Somiunzi. claimed yesterday 
in an interview with The 
Times that Major-General 
Kwane Scbc. son of the Presi- 
dent for life. Mr Lennox Sebc. 
who was abducted by un- 
known while men last Friday, 
was being held hostage in 
neighbouring Transkei. 

According to Mr Somtunzi. 
Major-General Scbe is a pris- 
oner in Umiata. the Transkei 
capital, at the house of Mr 
Namba Scbe. a disgruntled 
brother of President Sebc. Mr 
Namba Sebe. a former Min- 
ister of Transport in Ciskei. 
sought refuge in Transkei to 


evade charges of fraud and 
corruption. 

Late on Friday. Mr Som- 
lunzi said. Mr Namba Sebe 
telephoned a Ciskei minister 
demanding that President 
Sebe, as the price for the 
release of his son, should 
resign and make way for a 
government headed by Mr

Charles Sebe. another rene- 
gade brother of the President. 

Mr Charles Scbe, once the 
much-feared head of the 
Ciskei security forces, was 
arrested in July 1983 amid 
allegations of a plot to topple 
his brother, and was sentenced 
a year later to 12 years’ prison 


for having allegedly incited 
police and army officers to 
commit violence. 

On Friday, the same day 
that Major-General Kwane 
Sebe. commander of an elite 
security force unit, was kid- 
napped. another group of 
armed white men freed Mr 
Charles Sebe from prison. He 
is also understood to be in 
Transkei 

A former member of the 
South .African security police, 
he believed he had a mission 
to eliminate communists. 

The abductors of President 
Sebe's son are also demanding 
the release from jail of the two 
sons of Mr Namba Sebe and 
Mr Charles Sebe. Former 
members of the Ciskei se- 
curity forces, they were sen- 
tenced in 1984 to long prison 
terms for complicity in a 
rebellion against the Ciskei 
Government. 

There has been no public 
comment on the affair from 
Transkei.

New Peking code reaffirms 
Deng’s open-door policy 


Details of a sweeping new 
code of conduct issued by 
China’s powerful Communist 
Party Central Committee re- 
affirm the country’s commit- 
ment to the open-door policy 
and uphold the right of Chi- 
nese citizens to make money, 
to learn from capitalist coun- 
tries and to adopt a greater 
measure of democracy. 

A 10.000-character resolu- 
tion, entitled "Guiding prin- 
ciples for building a socialist 
society with an advanced cul- 
ture and ideology", calls the 
modernization programme 
spearheaded by Mr Deng 
Xiaoping, China's supreme 
leader, “a basic, unalterable 
policy". 

It emphasizes the need for 
“socialist morality", based on 
the development of “socialist 
spiritual civilization" to ac- 
company the development of 
China’s economy, which the 
Dengists dub “material civ- 
ilization". 

In a reference to well- 
publicized cases of etxmomic 
crime and bureaucratic fraud 
that have proliferated since 
1978. the document observes: 
“Socialist morality rejects 
both the idea and the practice 
of pursuing personal interests 
at the expense of others, or 
pursuing the interests of one’s 
own group at the expense of 
others, or pursuing the in- 
terests of one’s own group at 
the expense ^of the larger 
collective". 

According to the document, 
the socialist legal system pro- 
tected the rights of all the 
people, and everyone was 
equal under the law. 

“Support of the democratic 
legal system begins at schooL 
The law is a powerful weapon 
in protecting the people and 


From Robert Grieves, Peking 
protecting the four modern- 
izations." 

At the same time, the 
resolution warned that the 
West’s “bourgeois liberaliza- 
tion, which means negating 
the socialist system in favor of 
capitalism, is in total contra- 
diction to the people’s int- 
erests". 

But the resolution declares 
that China’s “iron rice bowl” 
of equal pay regardless of 
effort must be broken. 

“China will on no account 
regard egalitarianism (equal 
pay for unequal work) as an 
ethical principle m our 
society." 

• The resolution was issued 
after 199 Central Committee 
members and 126 alternates 
held a one-day plenary session 
in the Great Hall of the People 
here, following five days of 
preparatory meetings. 

The session was chaired by 
Mr Hu Yaobang, the party 
general secretary. Mr Deng, 
Mr Zhao Ziyang. China's 
Premier. Mr Li Xiannian, 
China's President, and Mr 
Chen Yun, a conservative 
senior member of the Central 
Committee's polrtburo. 




, ' *»;• jk"* 


Mr Deng: “a basic and 
unalterable policy." 


The resolution, issued in 
eight instalments by the New 
China News Agency, appeared 
on the front page of yest- 
erday's edition of the nor- 
mally drab Peoples' Daily 
under large red headlines. 

Mr Deng said recently that 
it was too early to take action 
on the pressing issue of politi- 
cal reform, which lies at the 
heart of China’s moderniza- 
tion drive. 

But some Chinese officials 
said last week that the 
•plenum's discussion of “spir- 
itual civilization" could set 
the stage for the debate on 
political reform. 

By defining the ideological 
basis of Mr Deng's mod- 
ernization programme, dip- 
lomats here say. Mr Deng is 
attempting to protect himself 
from party conservatives who 
have charged (hat his reforms 
have fostered corruption and a 
weakening of China's socialist 
structure. 

“This meeting was a tri- 
umph for Deng, and goes 
much further than 1 would 
have expected." a Western 
diplomat said yesterday . 

“It endorses his position on 
just about all points, except 
those that even Dengists 
would say need correcting." 

Mr Deng is expected to step 
down formally as paramount 
leader at the party’s 13th 
national congress which wall 
be attended by i ,950 delegates 
in Peking next October. 

• Leaders meet: General Woj- 
cieeh Jaruzelski. who is head 
of the Polish Communist 
Party, exchanged views on the 
development of socialism 
with Mr Deng during an hour- 
long interview in the Great 
Hall of the People here 
yesterday. 


Solidarity 
leaders 
look to 
the future 

Warsaw — Poland's Solidar- 
ity leaders met yesterday 
under the chairmanship of Mr 
Lcch Walesa to chan a new 
opposition strategy towards 
the communist authorities af- 
ter the release of the country’s 
political prisoners (Roger 
Boyes writes). 

The fundamental problem 
is whether to dissolve the 
underground leadership and 
lo try to operate completely 
legally.

Relations between the pow- 
erful Matanzima family in 
Transkei and President Sebe 
have never been friendly. The 
Matanzimas would like to rule 
over a greater Xhosa state in 
the Eastern Cape, and were 
angry when Ciskei accepted 
“independence" from Pre- 
toria in 1981. As they saw it, 
this “divided the Xhosa 
nation". 

Neither Transkei, which 
look “independence" in 1976 
and has about 2,500.300 
inhabitants, nor Ciskei, whose 
population is about 720,000, 
is recognised by the outside 
world, and their leaders are 
denounced by radical black 
political groups as govern- 
ment stooges. 

Former white members of 
the Selous Scouts, the elite 
anti-guerrilla unit of Southern 
Rhodesia, hold prominent po- 
sitions in the Transkei se- 
curity forces, and could well 
have sprung Mr Charles Sebe 
from prison and abducted 
President Sebe’s son. 


Egypt steps in 
with offer on 
peace process 

From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

Egypt yesterday offered its 
services as the main arbiter of 
the Middle East peace process, 
saying it was in a unique 
position to promote Arab- 
Israeii reconciliation. 

Mr Ahmed Abdel Meguid. 
the Egyptian Foreign Min- 
ister. told the UN General 
.Assembly that Egypt was best 
equipped to act “as a direct 
party with all other parties" in 
the Middle East dispute. 

It was also in a position to 
engage in a dialogue with the 
five permanent members of 
the Security Council to create 
the conditions for convening 
an international peace 
conference. 

He appeared to straddle the 
different approaches taken by 
Israel and Arab states to a 
peace conference, saying it 
should serve as a framework 
for negotiations.

THE TIMES TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1986 


TV 


cameraman 
kidnapped as 
tension rises 
in west Beirut 


Beirut (Reuter) - A French 
television cameraman was re- 
ported kidnapped in west 
Beirut and an Army colonel 
was murdered in the Christian 
cast yesterday as tension 
mounted between soldiers and 
militiamen. 

A French Embassy spokes- 
man said thai Jean-Marc 
Sroussi. aged 41. -a freelance 
cameraman for several tele-, 
vision networks including 
France's Antenne-2, had been 
kidnapped. 

M Sroussi was seized on 
Sunday as he crossed by car 
from Christian east Beirut to 
the mainly Muslim western 
sector, through southern sub- 
urbs. largely controlled by the 
Shia Muslim AmaJ militia. 

Local media said that he 
was crossing the “Green Line” 
divide to try to learn the 
whereabouts of his assistant, 
Mr Fuad Suleiman, a Chris- 
tian Syrian, w ho was abducted 
last week. 

The Amal militia has 
launched a massive hunt for 
M Sroussi. whose abduction 
took place in an area largely 
controlled by Amal. 

“Orders have gone out to all 
our posts and checkpoints to 
look for him.” militia sources 
said. 


Nine French nationals are 
now among at feast 20 for- 
eigners missing, believed kid- 
napped. in Lebanon. 

In cast Beirut, tension rose 
sharply between the Christian 
Lebanese Forces militia and 
regular army soldiers after the 
Army intervened in a week- 
end battle between Christians 
in which at least 33 people 
died. 

The militia issued a com- 
munique blaming “hot 
headed" Army officers for a 
shoot-out at a militia check- 
point on Sunday in which two 
Christian fighters died. 

It said that while the Leba- 
nese Forces enjoyed good 
relations with the Army, offi- 
cers should not be allowed to 
act in a “haphazard manner”. 

In an apparently related 
incident, gunmen shot dead a 
senior Christian officer in his 
east Beirut home. 

A senior Lebanese Forces 
official said that the murder of 
Colonel Khalil Kanaan. aged 
56. commander of the Fifth 
Brigade, was part of a plot to 
destabilize Christian areas of 
the country. 

“We had very good links 
with the officer, ana the killing 
has been made to look as if we 
were involved," he said 


Prickly path to Arab leadership in West B ank cities 


Jordan is 
happy at 
choice 
of mayors 


y'JsgJSr. 


From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 


Jordan yesterday welcomed 
the appointment by Israel of 
three Arab mayors for the 
occupied West Bank ntiq of 
Ramailah, Hebron and A1 


Bireh. They started work yes- 
terday, learning the job from 
the Israeli military governors 
who have been running the 
cities since their Arab mayors 
were deposed four years ago. 

It has taken mouths of 
delicate negotiations to find 
Arabs prepared to serve as 
mayors, foiling the assas- 
sination last March of Mr 
Zafr al-Masri, who was ap- 
pointed Mayor of Nablus by 
Israel in what was said at the 
time to be a prototype for the 
kind of local autonomy fa- 
voured for the occupied -terri- 
tories by the Israeli Labomr 
Party. 

Several potential candidates 
for the post of mayor in other 
towns withdrew after the mur- 
der and the funeral of Mr al- 
Masri, which turned into a 
huge demonstration of support 
for the Palestine liberation 
Organization (PLO). 

Critics here blamed the 
Israeli Government at the tone 
for turning the Mayor of 
Nablus into an inevitable 
assassination victim by hold-

ing him up as an example of 
the type of person who could 
work peacefully for the 
Palestinian canse alon gsi de 
the Israeli occupying power. 

In marked contrast, Israeli 
authorities have been at pains 
to play down the significance 
of the three new appointments. 

Major General Ephraim 
Sneli, the rivfl administration 
chief in the West Bank, said 
that what was involved was an 
initiative of the people with no 
political connotation. There 
was no attempt in try to create 


m 


an alternative leadership 
the West Bank, he said. 

Nevertheless Jordan has 
promised financial support for 
the three mayors, all of whom 
went to Amman to seek ap- 
proval before agreeing to the 
Israeli appointment. 

King Husain, who » looking 
for an alternative leadership to 
the PLO, must therefore see 
them as potential allies. 

None of them is a revolu- 
tionary figure. Mr Hassan al- 
Tawfl in Al Bireh is 71, a 
wealthy landowner and 


incssman who is already 
established as one of the city's 
two main community leaders. 

Dr Abdel Majid al-Ziris is 
aged 58- and the head of 
Hebron's Municipal Health 
Department, which means he 
is already a Jordanian aril 
servant

aged 59 and a wealthy 
businessman who served as 
Mayor of Ramailah between

sponsored appointees took

A former car worker _ ac- 
cused of war crimes detailed 
in a 17-page catalogue was 
charged f 9 rmally when he 
appeared in Jerusalem Dis- 
trict Court yesterday. Mr Ivan 
John Demjanjuk, aged 66, will 
be in custody until his show- 
trial starts, probably at the end 
of the year. „ _ 

If. found guilty. Mr Dem- 
janjuk. from Cleveland. Ohio, 
could face the death penalty. 
Capital punishment do es no t 
exist in Israel, even for terror- 
ism, but it has been retained 
for war criminals and was 
used to bang Adolf Eiehmann 
25 years ago. 

It is seven months since he 
was extra dieted from the US, 
having been stripped of his 
American nationality after 
admitting he falsified his im- 
migration papers in 1951. 

Eight survivors of the Nazi 
extermination camp at Treb- 
linka. in Poland, where 
900.000 Jews died between 
2942 and 1943. are prepared 
to identify him as “Ivan the 
Terrible" its executioner. 

The sort of accusation 
which will be made during the 
trial was given by the charge 
sheet; “The accused stabbed 
his victims in various parts of 
their bodies, tore pieces of 
flesh from their limbs and 
injured them with great force. 

“On more than one occa- 
sion, the accused selected 
elderly Jews, adorned with 
beards and si delocks, and led 
them naked to the nearby wire 
fence. The accused would 
place his victim's head be- 
tween the taught strands of the 
wire while beating the un- 
fortunate man's body with his 
whip. 

“The victim, wriggling ab- 
out from the severity of ihe 
pain, would strangle himself 
on the strands of the barbed 
wire between which his head 
was trapped.” 

Mr Mark O'Connor, an 
American defence lawyer, will 
be seeking to prove not that 
the atrocities never happened, 
but that the prisoner was 
never at Trcblinka, let alone 
serving as executioner there. 

Mr Demjamuk claims that 
he is the victim of a Soviet 
plot to discredit him afier he 
deserted from the Red Army 
during the war. 

His case is that he was 
himself a prisoner of the 
Nazis, and went on to become 
a model American immigrant, 
a Ford car mechanic, loving 
father and grandfather and 
respected member of the con- 
gregation of St Vladimir 
Church in Cleveland. 

Mr O’Connor said that the 
question of identification 
would be “a trial within a 
trial". The court would have 
to look at evidence obtained 
from archives in Poland, East 
and West Germany and the 
Soviet Union. 


Costa Rica 
admits 
to Contra 
airstrip 


From Martha Honey 
San Jose 


A high-ranking Costa Rica 
Government official has ad- 
mitted for the first time that* 
large, clandestine airstrip ne* 
the border with Nicaragua is* 
US-financed Contra catag 
built during the previous Sin 
Jos£ administration with Ute 
help of the Civil Guard. 

This contradicts the official 
version, given after journalists 
discovered the airstrip lari 
week, that the 15-mile dirt 
ta piling strip was part of * 
private tourist project located 
on the Potrero Grande inlet on 
the Pacific coast, 15 miles 
south of Nicaragua. 

Sd*r H email Garron, the 

Costa Rica Security Minister, 
had told the press that the 
airstrip had been built earlier 
this year br the Panama-based 
Udall Research Corporation 
as part of a beach resort The 
companv - eventually aban- 
doned the project because of 
its proximity to the Nica- 
raguan civil war. 

The Civil Guard raided the 
abandoned airstrip on Septem- 
ber 3 because of persistent 
rumours that aircraft were, 
landing there. . “We tl 
there might be Contras in 
area or armed drug 
gters," he said. - 
Residents in the area say 
that since early this year Grit 
Guardsmen and at least two 
Americans have been seen 
going to the site. The airstrip 
and the barracks alongside, 
they believe, were c on structed 
by the Guardsmen under 
supervision from “engineers 
from the US Embassy." 

Senor Garron denied that 
Ciril Guardsmen were in- 
volved In the construction. The 
US Embassy has refused to 
comment. 

However, a top Government 
official here said: "It is a 
Contra base and the US and 
the Civil Guard were involved 
in the construction of it." 

He said that President 
Arias was informed of its 


existence in early May, just 

offia 


after be took office and "im- 
mediately ordered its shafting 
down." 

This action, he added, was 
not made public because of 
Costa Rica's "very delicate* 1 
relations with the US. 

Two other Government of- 
ficials said President Arias 
ordered that Civil Guardsmen 
be stationed at the airstrip and 
bands be placed on tire 
runway to prevent its use. 

However, a visit to the 
remote airstrip revealed that 
there are - no obstructions on 
the runway. 

Government officials say 
that Guardsmen stationed 
there in May were later with- 
drawn and returned only early 
this month after residents 
complained that the airstrip 
was again being used. Several 
residents said they had seen 
large transport planes landing. 


French right wing will 
dominate new Senate 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 


France's ruling right-wii 
coalition party has emerge 
victorious from the weekend 
Senate election and the parlia- 
mentary by-election in the 
Haute Garonne, and the left 
did less badly than had been 
feared. 

The Communist Party, 
which had been in danger of 
losing its right to form an 
|.offirialIy-recognized group in 
the Senate, managed to retain 
the minimum 15 seats re- 
quired, after losing nine of its 
19 seats which had come up 
for re-election. 

But in the Haute Garonne, 
the Communists' reduced 
support slipped still further, to 
o ve the party just 6 per cent of 
the vote, compared with 8 per 
cent in the March general 
election. 

The Gaullist Rassembl- 
ement pour la Rdpublique 
(RPR) party was the big 
winner of the Senate elections, 
taking 18 more 'seats than 
before. With 77 seats, it is now 
almost certain to form the 
btegat group in the Senate for 
the first time in the party's 
history, though the final party 



alignments in the upper house 
will not be known until the 
opening of Parliament on 
October 2 Until now the 
Senate has always been domi- 
nated by the centre-right. 

The parties supporting the 
Rassemblement pour la Rep- 
ublique-Union pour la Demo- 
cratic Francais (RPR-UDF) 
coalition in government will 
now have 229 out of the 319 
Senate seats. 

M Alain Poher’s re-election 
as president of the upper! 
house, a post he has held since 
1968, seems a foregone 
conclusion. 

The Socialist Party, which 
thought it might lose up to 
eight Or nine seats in the' 
Senate, was relieved to lose 
only five, leaving it with * 
respectable group of 62 sen- 
ators. The limitation of its , 
losses was due largely to the 
divisions within the UDF. 
which led to dissident can- : 
di dates splitting the centre- 
right vote. 

The results reflect the swing' 
to the right which has oc-. 
curred in local govern mem 
elections over the past four 
years rather than any shift in 
public opinion since the 
right's return to power in 
March. 


It was thought that the 
name Garonne by-election 
ra*ght provide a better test of- 
foe Chirac Government's 
popularity. But there were few 
surprises. The distribution of

Three killed in Punjab 
bazaar as terrorists 
turn attention to left 


The unremitting terrorist 
campaign in the fertile north 
Indian state of Punjab contin- 
ued yesterday as two killers 
riding a scooter fired at ran- 
dom into an early-morning 
bazaar crowd in Jullundur. 


From Michael HamJyn, Delhi 


Three people died on the 
spot, and two others were 
taken to hospital seriously 
wounded. 


The towns of Punjab have a 
predominently Hindu popula- 
tion. and several incidents of 
random murder have led both 
to a deep sense of insecurity 
among them and to consid- 
erable emigration to neigh- 
bouring Haryana or Delhi. 


Yesterday police had to fire 
shots in the air to disperse an 
angry mob of Hindus throw- 
ing stones and bent on aveng- 
ing the deaths. 


council member of the Com- 
munist Party of India, who 
was shot as he rode a bicycle to 
his village. 

He was well known in the 
British communist move- 
ment. and was a former 
member of the Punjab legisla- 
ture who earned bis surname 
from a 30-year stay in Canada. 

His funeral was attended by 
the central Home Minister, 
Mr Buta Singh, and the State 
Governor. Mr S.S. Ray. 

The other leftist killed was 
Mr Baldev Singh Mann, a 
leading member of the Marx- 
ist-Leninisi Communist 
Party. He was returning home 
in a rickshaw. 


The past week has seen a 
daily stream of two or three 
murders, although some are 
undoubtedly as a result of 
normal violent crime. 


One new development in 
the terrorist campaign is plain, 
however the gunmen are now 
turning their attention to spe- 
cific left-wing targets. 

Over the weekend, two 

S ominent leftists were killed.

Canadian, aged 68, a national 


Throughout the wave of 
killings police in Punjab have 
recorded a growing number of 
arrests of hardline terrorists. 

Fourteen were captured in 
various parts of the state on 
Friday and another five the 
day before. Nine were taken a 
week ago, including one said 
to have killed the command- 
ing brigadier at Ramgarh in 
Bihar during the mutiny of 
Sikh soldiers which followed 
the storming of the Golden 
Temple of Amritsar in 1984. 

Police in the rest of the 
country have also been pick- 
ing up members of the gang 
said to have been responsible 


for the murder of General A.S 
Vaidya. the former Army 
Chief of Staff 

The state Home Ministry 
said that police administra- 
tion in Punjab, together with 
their mobility and commu- 
nications systems, had been 
improved. Sixty new Jeeps 
had been employed and new 
VHF radios had replaced ob- 
solete equipment. 

Mr Suijit Singh Barri ala, 
who recently celebrated the 
first anniversary of his taking 
office as Chief Minister, has 
felt able to describe his tenure 
as having put the state on the 
road to normality. 

He claimed that the security 
situation had improved “by 
and large” 

He explained that he had 
resisted the central Gov- 
ernment's attempt to create a 
security belt, out of the control 
of the state government, along 
the border with Pakistan, and 
'‘through hard struggle” bad 
been able to retain for Punjab 
two rice- and cotton-rich 
Hindi-speaking areas destined 
to be given to Haryana. 

He had been able to restore 
confidence to Sikhs outside 
Punjab, whose migration to 
the state was now being dis- 
couraged. and about 200 
Hindu families who had left 
had been persuaded to return, i

Sri Lanka challenges 


Amnesty’s report 


From Vijitha Yapa, Colombo 
The Sri Lankan Govern- accompanied by other state- 


ment yesterday rejected a 
recent Amnesty International 
report. Disappearenca in Sri 
Lanka* and challenged the 
human rights organization to 
allow the Government to 
defend itself. 

The reply by Professor Tflak 
Ratnakara, chairman of the 
Government Media Centre, 
also asserts that “a statement 
or sworn affidavit by itself 


ments and affidavits seeming 
to corroborate one another, is 
not a legally acceptable, truth- 
ful and valid document unless 
subjected to cross examina- 
tion by the party accused of 
such disappearances.” 

The Government claims 
that the reasons for the so- 
called disappearances include 
people assuming aliases when 
they join guerrilla groups.

Your company uses the post - but there are 
many ways it could use the post moreeffectiygly 
for greater efficiency and profitability 
For example: most letters and invoices 
weigh less than 15g. But the basic weight 
allowance for an inland letter is 60g. So you could 
enclose a sales leaflet without paying extra postage ! 

Another example: if your company switched 
from second to first class post when sending invoices 
and included a Business Reply envelope, your customers 
could pay sooner - improving your cash flow

The Philippines Govern- 
ment expects to sign a 
ceasefire agreement with 
Communist rebels perhaps 
within 48 hours, the chief 
negotiator, Mr Ramon Mitra, 
said yesterday. 

Certain details of the 30-day 
renewal ceasefire, including 
the setting up of a national 
panel to monitor the truce, 
still have to be thrashed out at 
another secret meeting of toe 
negotiating panel, he said. 

The probable ceasefire pact 
will be based on a compromise

tiators, Mr Satur Ocampo and 
Mr Antonio ZumeL represent- 
ing the National Democratic

Argentine 
bankers 
in £78m 
scandal 


From Eduardo Cue 
Buenos Aires 


Seven senior bank officials, 
including the president and 
vice-president of the thir- 
teenth largest private bank, 
are under arrest in connection 
with a scheme which has' 
defrauded the Argentine Gov- 
ernment of Si 10 million (£78 
million) in export credits. 

The scheme was carried out 
over two years allegedly by 
directors of the Banco Alas. 
Despite the release on Sat- 
urday of three senior Ar- 
gentine Central Bank export 
officiate held in connection 
with the case, speculation has 
continued in government and 
financial circles that it could 
not have been carried oat 
without the collaboration of 
eh government officials. 

The president of the Central 
Bank. Sedor Jose Lnfs 
Machine*, last week admitted 
to “deficiencies” in bis bank's 
internal control structure and 
said: “Corruption continues to 
exist in the financial system.” 

In all, 13 senior Banco Alas 
officers have been arrested 
since SeAor Machines an- 
nounced the fraud at a press 
conference on September 19, 
causing a brief run on deposits 
in spite of government assur- 
ances that the bank would not 
be allowed to collapse. 

The Central Bank has taken 
over the operations of Banco 
Alas for a 180-day period, and 
last week it operated normally 
despite the scandaL 

Suspicions at the Central 
Bank about Banco Alas activ- 
ities were confirmed with the 
discovery that only $300,000 
of the $110 million in letters of 
export credits it had filed 
could be verified. Investigation 
showed that 16 of the 20 
companies.on a list of export- 
ers to whom Banco Alas said it 
had extended credits did not 
exist, and the four others 
denied any business relation- 
ship with the bank. 

The bank, which had not 
previously specialized in ex- 
port financing, bad claimed 
$110 million of a total $700 
million in credits made avail- 
able by the Government tiiis 
year to spur industrial exports. 

Police alleged last week that 
they found the equivalent of 
$750,000 In cash In. a 
Mercedes-Benz belonging to 
tiie bank's vice-president, Se- 
nor Jorge Gaspar DachinL 
They said that a search of a 
bank director's home turned 
np a number of Swiss and 
American bank accounts in the 
names of bank officials. 

There are suspicions that ' 
senior Central Bank officials 
are involved. The missing 
$110 million represents 150 
per cent of Banco Alas's total 
loans and 425 per cent of its 
assets. 


A Central Bank investiga- 
tion in June of Banco Alas's 
operations revealed only “mi- 
nor irregularities” 


Suicide protest against 
Japan railways sell-off 


From David Watts, Tokyo 

The notion that Japanese when the management re- 


society swiftly and painlessly 
adapts to change is quickly 
dispelled by the number of 
deaths attributed to oppo- 
sition to the planned privat- 
ization of Japanese National 
Railways (JNR). 

Already there have been 37 
suicides and one murder since 
toe Government proposed the 
break-up of the national rail- 
way system into regional par- 
cels to be sold off to toe 
private sector despite enor- 
mous deficits. 

Yesterday the latest victim, 
a young engineer, was found 
hanged in northern Japan and 
at toe weekend another young 
railway worker in his early 20s 
jumped off the roof of his five- 
storey dormitory in protest 
against the plan. 

Many of toe deaths are left 
unexplained, but Mr Hiroki 
Takano's suicide dive was 
provoked by suggestions that 
if he wanted to keep his job 
with JNR he had better leave 
toe union. 

”! stake my life to oppose 
toe proposed split by JNR and 
toe monopolistic capitalists.” 
he said in his suicide note. If 
toe message sounded ideologi- 
cal. it is some distance from 
toe whole story. 

Like most other workers in 
such an organization. Mr 
Takano joined with the notion 
that he would be working for 
the national railway system 
for the rest of his life. 

But, like thousands of other 
railway workers, he had to 
swallow his pride last April 


Greek envoys 
go on strike 
for more pay 


assigned him from his pre- 
vious job as a motorman. 

For many men like him it 
would not have been so bad if 
he had moved to something 
similar, but Mr Takano's new 
career was as a tea-shop waiter 
in one of toe myriad side 
businesses that toe railway has 
set up to try to absorb excess 
manpower. 

From bookshops to tea- 
houses. there is no knowing 
where a former motorman 
may end jf be stays within toe 
organization. Perhaps luckier 
are those moved to outside 
corporations which have been 
instructed by the Government 
to take on displaced JNR 
workers. 

For strong trade unionists 
the problem is more fun- 
damental. The national union 
of Japanese railway workers, 
Kokuro, is the last strong 
nationally-based blue-collar 
union in Japan. Most unions 
are in-house and consequently 
unable to mobilize significant 
numbers of people on national 
and international issues. 

Many unionists Fed be- 
trayed by their leaders and so 
far Kokuro has not been able 
to bridge a vast gulf between 
those supporting the union 
leadership and those still hold- 
ing out against privatization. 

In the best traditions of 
Japanese society, the Kokuro 
leadership must obtain a 
consensus before announcing 
a new policy. But that is still a 
long way and probably several 
suicides away.

The l and of dynasty tunes in to Dallas 




w ^ . The Queen leaves 
g next week for her 

WaM vL ^ first visit to China. 

What will she find? 

pSnvrmvSvmvn Brian James went 
UuIuilillliSMiillilil buck to the coun try 
he visited five years ago and discovered that 
westernization has brought dramatic 
changes. Photographs by Graham Wood 

Part 1: East goes West 


Thai Greater Wall of China — the 
barrier of distancing contempt for 
“barbaric” Westerners with which 
u the Chinese have surrounded 
themselves for 10.000 years — is 
down and the world, we are told, is 
about to swarm in. 

The Queen, who arrives on 
October 1 2. will be among the one 
million visitors permitted to gawp 
at the 244 Chinese cities now 
officially “open” in a land where 
most of her ancestors would have 
required covering fire from a 
gunboat to penetrate a mile in* 
land. 

The changes in ancient China 
qualify as the eighth wonder of our 
modern world, always provided 
such a list could indude logically 
something that was not there, say, 
j three years ago and will not appear 
tomorrow as it does today. The 
Queen will see most of traditional 
China. The other 999,999 visitors 
will make their obeisance at the 
tombs and also select from a menu 
of opportunity that includes the 
chance to play golf in the valley of 
the Ming tombs, marvel at the site 
where China's own Disneyland is 
sprouting up. or learn to shoot 
with the People's Army. 

Will China soon, then, be no 
more than another stop on the 
tourist high road, an open, tamed 
wildlife park, part of the cultural 
Esperanto that enables even the* 
» least adventurous to have a 


Volvo, Toyota and 
Mercedes cars 
cruise the highways 


Kellogg's breakfast in sight of the 
Khyber Pass and dine at Mc- 
Donalds in the heart of Amazo- 
nia? 

China will be a burden on our 
imagination for ever because our 
ignorance remains total. One per- 
son in five on the planet is 
Chinese, yet we have seldom 
penetrated their land, and never 
their heads. To a being from outer 
space, their isolation would be 
incomprehensible: rather like 
coming to this planet, covered as it 
is seven-tenths by water, to hear 
that few of us could swim and we 
have never learned to build a boat. 
If we feel that China is a puzzle 
that soon will be unravelled, we 
delude ourselves. I say this against 
the evidence of my own eyes, for 
the scale and pace of change since 
a previous visit five years ago is no 
less than astounding. 

The ambushes of surprise begin 
at the airport, which I had 
remembered as functional and 
desolate; the architectural style 


was Russian Municipal, a mock- 
marblc blockhouse: a handful of 
functionaries stared as you toted 
your own bags. 

Now there are slick lines 
processing the passports: lines for 
Them. Us and swift special pas- 
sage for diplomats and cadres. 
You emerge then into a maul of 
men wanting to whistle you up a 
cab. steer you to a hotel of their 
choice, not yours, or advise you 
soito vocc where you can change 
money to advantage — again 
theirs, not yours. 

The centre of Peking used to 
come with a comforting familiar- 
ity to first-time visitors: like 
Piccadilly's Eros, the awaiting 
postcard view. The pagodas, the 
walls of the Forbidden City, are 
still where they were supposed to 
be. but now the incoming eye has 
to take in the tower-block offices, 
the high-rise hotels. Bits of Peking 
skyline now are more Dallas than 
dynasty. 

Five years ago the 1 0-kilometre 
Avenue of Eternal Peace, which is 
a straight-line axis forthe city, was 
the place to stare at 10.000 
bicycles, scarcely impeded by the 
handful of 19Sus-style cabs that 
stopped for no one, least of all 
would-be fares. No more. Now 
Peking has the most modem taxi 
fleet surely on earth: this year's 
Volvos. Toy mas and Mercedes 
cruise nose to tail along the six 
centre lanes. 

Five years ago my hotel had no 
lock on the door. A mournful man 
would enter without a knock or 
word and slam (town a fresh 
thermos of hot green tea or cold 
water and towels. Never soap. 
Today 13 items of scent, shampoo 
and afler-shave duster around the 
lap. 

Then, entertainment for West- 
ern high-livers was a beer-only bar 
on the ninth floor. Now there are 
about nine restaurants in the hotel 
where 1 lodged. Like the other 
eighty — perhaps I should repeat, 
eighty hotels — under plan or 
construction, they will serve you 
food, flown in from all comers of 
the world. 

Trips to the many markets are 
not the fun they were. Five years 
ago you walked in swarming 
crowds, with little sense of per- 
sonal space for themselves, who 
nevertheless permitted you an 
oasis of freedom. It was kindly 
meant and also gave them an 
opportunity to stand back aid 
stare. Today strolling, meandering 
Westerners are as popular as 
Swedish backpackers on the rusb- 
hourTube. 

The Chinese of the capital are a 
species that has changed its spots. 
Five years back the notion that 
they all wore blue Mao suits, 
except those few rugged individ- 





Contrast in culture: a peasant farmer returns home from the fields near Peking with his ghetto Master, linking China's rural past with the new western-influenced consumer society 


ualists who wore grey, was a cliche 
not refuted by fact Now enough 
polyester glides past by cyde every 
day to girdle the earth, and some 
of the stripes and patterns are 
glittering and gaudy enough to 
encourage the belief that the shirts 
come marked “Batteries Extra”. 

To proceed further with this 
catalogue of China's superficial 
changes would be to risk the 
gravest of crimes— to make China 
boring — especially as there are 
more interesting side-alleys to 
peer into, such as examples of how 
China has imported, too. some of 
the urban problems of the West 

Certainly China is alive with 
enterprise, which translates into 
youths busy recyding bicycle 
spokes to sell from home-made 
stalls, to alley-entrance food stores 
and front-room restaurants open- 
ing. often literally, before your 
eyes. In one street I saw a dozen 


young'men hunkered at the kerb. 
By their feet one had three paint 
brushes, another two screw- 
drivers. a third a saw and a sample 
of a mortise joint. These were 
workless. literally off their bikes to 
sit mutely offering their skills. 

Nevertheless, with an estimated 
200 million Chinese teenagers to 
be fitted into the economy, there 
must be a limit to the numbers 
that can be absorbed by even the 
galloping free-market micro- 
capitalism of Deng Xioping's 
dramatic reform, following his 
declared Open Door to Western 
ideas of enterprise. Already home- 
less teenagers pay a few fen (a 
fraction ofa yuan) to sleep on the 
toilet floors of the Central Station. 

Last month the first business in 
China to go bankrupt since 1949 
was announced officially. So was 
an estimate that 40 per cent of the 
Stale's enterprises were running at 









is mmmf 


wbossssbl 


Peking skyline: new hotels and office tower Mocks are shooting up 


a loss. So was the clear message 
that all managers should be aware 
that they run their enterprises for 
profit — or begin thinking of fresh 
careers. 

For five years most workers 
have been able to claim produc- 
tion bonuses: soon they will also 
be able to collect their cards if they 
fell below target. In selected cases, 
unemployment benefit may be- 
come due. Bui the hard truth that 
the Chinese are starting to learn is 
that the free-market axe swinging 
so joyfully at bureaucracy and 
managerial incompetence can also 
leave blood on the factory floor — 
theirs. 

Other consequences inevitably 
flow. The recent execution of two 
youngsters for mugging a visitor 
received headlines in the West 
Chinese have had their own 
indications that street crime is no 
longer the thing of the past that it 
became with Liberation: posters 
giving the names of miscreants 
appear like a rash on street 
corners. 

There is sleaze on the streets. 
The firee-markm. which began 
with peasants selling their over- 
production. now indude factory 
off-cuts of western export orders 
and even some shoddy rip-offs, 
with labels like “Bukinghame 
(sic) Palace” — designer names 
palpably phoney to sell a style that 
is predominantly Communist 
Posh. circa Prague, I960. 

There is sleaze under coven the 
“Yellow Trade”. Peking for pom. 
A city-slicked young man was 
pointed out to me as being clever 
enough not only to import crude 
videos, but to hire a flat simply for 
his shows. This in a city still 
basically so puritanical that a 


popular weekly ballroom dance in 
a big grocery store was ended 
because the couples were getting 
loo cuddly: the Last Tango in 
Tcscos. 

The privileges awarded among 
themselves by the Pgrty hacks and 
ihe cadres, loo. arc changing: a 
decade ago they were confined to 
opportunities for softer work 

The free-market axe 
can leave blood 
on the factory floor 


tasks, safely from criticism. Now 
it is first pick of Western riches at 
special shops only they dare enter. 

Even so, in the face of the 
manifest, quantum leap of Chi- 
nese standards of living within the 
decade, the change, by several 
orders of magnitude, in apparent 
attitude towards personal wealth 
and possession, the concomitant 
blemishes of a society running so 
hard to catch up that it inevitably 
scars its knees with a tumble, why 
not simply accept the feet that 
China is going West? 

For the very good reason that 1 
did not meet a single Westerner 
who lives in the land who believes 
it for a minute, nor a single 
educated Chinese who didn't warn 
me of the peril of projecting our 
wish onto their reality. The nation 
that in the 1 790s sent King George 
Ill's emissary packing with a 
polite. “You have nothing that we 
need” (even though that mes- 
senger arrived at the head of a 
column of 6.000 coolies bearing 
gifts) is not to be overcome now by 


subjects of this Queen promising 

6,000 container ships of electronic 
marvels on the easiest of easy 
terms. 

Said one western diplomat: 
“China changing? That's a myth. 
They are simply doing what they 
have always done: they lift the 
curtain aside to allow us in to 
show them what we can offer. 
They will take what they want and 
bow us to the door. Tourists come 
here, spot a thousand kids in 
jeans, listen to the radio playing 
Gcldof and go home spreading the 
word: 'Wow. they're just like us. 
deep down.' They are nothing of 
the sort. 

"Being Chinese is not a matter 
of nationality. It is an attitude of 
mind, a spiritual concept that is 
linked into the oldest of their 
ancestors and the newest building 
block on their land. And it is 
totally and permanently 
exclusive.” 

Another “I have been here 10 
years, speak the language fluently. 
Yet I would not claim to know a 
single Chinese. I do not say that in 
any spirit of complaint. I admire 
them hugely, for what they have 
endured, what they have achieved. 

** Bui to go home to Britain 
saying 1 understand China would 
be as vain as for an intelligent ant 
to crawl across the dome of St 
Paul's and then scuttle back to his 
hill claiming to have thus arrived 
at a full and total understanding of 
Christianity. They permit us to 
busy about the surface of their* 
world. No more.”

Vessels of 
seven fleets 
pay tribute 

From Stephen Taylor

A Royal Navy task group 
which is rimunnavigaticR the 
world sailed into Sydney Har- 
bour with vessels of six other 
navies yesterday, while aoti- 
nadear groups demonstrated 
from Abwk of small craft 
bobbing in their wake. 

Forty vessels, the largest 

concentration of warships ever 
gathered here, have come to 
celebrate tfae 75th anniversary 
of the Royal Australian Navy.

As well as the seven-ship 
British contingent, the RAN 
celebrations are being at- 
tended by the navies of the

Canada, France and Papna 
New Guinea. On Saturday the 

ships will be reviewed by the 

Duke of Edinburgh. 

Yesterday, helicopters hov- 
ered overhead, and police pa- 
trol boats and port anthonty 
bunches sped in every direc- 
tion to keep demonstrators 
from approaching the ships. 

Rear-Admiral Min Hogg, 
commander of the Royal Navy 
task group, said that protests

were the first encountered on 
the voyage, which has covered 

33.000 BsOes and 15 countries. 

He confirmed that there

Birth of an opposition party 
startles Taiwan’s rulers 


Taipei (Reuter) — Taiwan's 
opposition has challenged the 
might of the ruling Knomin- 
tang (Nationalist) Party by 
defying martial law and set- 
ting up a party to fight in 
elections later this year. 

The formation of the 
Democratic Progress Party by 
opposition politicians on Sun- 
day has startled the Kuomin- 
lang, which has ruled Taiwan 
since 1 949 when the National- 
ists retreated here after being 
toppled from power fay the 
Communists in China. 

The challenge comes as the 
Kuomintang is discussing 
whether to extend democracy 
by relaxing martial law. under 
which new political parlies are 
tanned. 

Political observers say that 
the new party will strengthen 
the hand of hardliners in the 
military and security forces 
who oppose liberalization and 
are concerned that the oppo- 
sition is trying to create pi 
independent state. The 
Kuomintang claims that it is 
the true government of main- 
land Ch ina.

Kuomintang sources say 
that party and internal se- 
curity officials held an emer- 
gency meeting on Sunday and 
another yesterday to decide 
how to respond to the move. 
But there has been no official 
reaction. 

Earlier this year, the Kuo- 
mintang began a political 
dialogue with the opposition 
by inviting its leaders to a 
series of informal dinners. 

It established high-level 
committees to examine ways 
to relax martial law and to 
extend democracy by opening 
more seats in the national 
Government to election. 

The opposition began fl- 
exing its muscles by setting up 
permanent offices which re- 
cruited members and acted as 
a political party in all bat' 
name. 

Analysts said reform is be- 
ing sponsored by President 
Chiang Ching-kuo, who is 
now aged 76 and anxious to 

secure his place in history. 

Opposition sources say that 
the party has been planned for 
several years. 


Police in refugee racket 


From Neil Kelly, Bangkok 


Police and officials in south- 
east Thailand are smuggling 
refugees from Vietnam and 
Cambodia into the country for 
£130 to £250 head. 

Observers say that the 
racket has been going on for 
years, with Thai fishing boats 
picking up refugees from the 
coast of Cambodia or from 
other vessels at sea. . 

They are then smuggled into 
coastal areas of Thailand, 
where some obtain forged 
identity papers showing that 
they an? Thai citizens. 

Others smuggle their way 
into refugee camps near the 


Cambodian border where they 
try to secure ascceptance for 
resettlement in ‘ Western 
countries. 

A few become marauding 
bandits along the border, 
where they live off what they 
can steal from Thai villagers. 

Thailand has closed its bor- 
der with Cambodia to all 
refugees trying to enter. Those 
who arrive there are confined 
to displaced persons' camps 
on the border. 

There they are not classified 
as refugees and are not eligible 
for resettlement in other 
countries. 


Opposition 
to Alcazar 
plan grows 

From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 

Opposition is mountii^ to 
the plan by Spain's socialist 
Defence Minister to turn one 
of the most famous symbols of 
the Civil War, the Alcazar 
Fortress in Toledo, into a 
cultural centre. 

Extreme right-wingers, 
including many in blue shirts, 
on Sunday shouted slogans 
like “the Alcdzar is ours, it will 
never surrender” and “the 
Alcdz a r only for the Army”. 

The demonstrators, who in- 
cluded such well-known fig- 
ures as Sen6r Bias Pinar, who 
plans soon to launch himself 
into active politics again with 
a French-style ultra-national- 
ist movement, had ignored 
pleas for reconciliation over 
the Fortress from Monsignor 
Marcelo Gonzalez. Cardinal 
Primate of Toledo. 

Senor N arris Serra, the 
Defence Minister, revealed on 
a recent visit to the city that he 
bad agreed to all or pari of the 
Fortress being made available 
to the Socialist-run autono- 
mous regional government of 
Castile-la-Mancha. . 

The Fortress houses a mu- 
seum dedicated to the 1936 
siege, seen solely from the 
perspective of the Franco side 
and local army headquarters. 

The regional government 
envisages the vast Fortress, 
which is at present under-used 
by the Army, bousing a li- 
brary, which would include a 
collection of books by Span- 
iards forced into exile by 
Franco's victory, an ex- 
hibition and concert areas. 

But the Spanish Army gen- 
eral staff, in a statement issued 
before Sunday's demonstra- 
tions. had already stated 
firmly that the Defence Min- 
istry will not give up the 
Fortress.

Pinochet moderates state of siege 


Three weeks after a stage of 
siege was declared in Chile, 
some of those arrested hare 
been released, and the Italian 
news agency Ansa has been 
allowed to resume work. 

The state of siege was 
declared after some 15 armed 
men ambushed the convoy of 
President Pinochet, killing 
five bodyguards and gravely 
injuring several others. 

The next day four men 
associated with left-wing opp- 
osition groups woe dragged 
from their homes during cur- 
few honrs. Their bullet-riddled 

bodies were discovered in the 
days that followed. 

A group calling itself the 
“September 11 Commando” 
claimed responsibility for the 
latter killings in revenge for 
the attack on General Pino- 
chet and bos threatened to kill 
more opposition leaders. 

A series of attempted 
kidnappings, midnight raids 
on homes ami death threats 
has been reported by Chilean 
journalists, lawyers and other 
opposition figures, most of 
whom still dare not sleep at 
home for fear of attack. 

Chile's detective force has 
repeatedly denied involvement 
in the killings. It has repainted 
its cars and announced identi- 
fication procedures to ensure 
that its members may be 
distinguished from the anony- 
mous commando. _ 

In an interview hi £7 


From Lake Sagans, Santiago 

Mercnrio , Seflor Francisco 
Cnadra, one of President 
Pinochet's most loyal min- 
isters, said that the Govern- 
ment believed tfae four men 
bad been shot by tbeir own 
comrades as part of internal 
purges. 

Bat the (act that the death 
sqnad operated daring curfew 
hours, with the state of siege in 
force and Santiago under strict 
military and police control, 
makes this difficult to accept 

Althoagh some government 
supporters say that the state of 
siege is insufficient and that an 
Argentim-style dirty war ag- 
ainst “extremists” should k 
carried out, other sectors of 
the Government seem to be 
bolding them back. 

Senor Andres Domingnez of 
the Human Rights Commis- 
sion said that die number of 
arrests, death threats and 
incidents of torture had in- 
creased under the state of 
siege. Bnt the level of re- 
pression (apart from the ban- 
ning of most opposition media) 
was not so different from more 
“normal** times. 

On Friday the Government 
released Seflor Andrea Palma, 
a student leader, and Seflor 
Ricardo Lajgos, leader of the 
moderate wing of the Socialist 
Party which (tarns part of the 
centre-conservative Democra- 
tic Alliance. 

Twelve people remain in 
police custody and another 13 


are in the hands of the CNL 
the political police. 

One objective of the re- 
pression seems to have been 
the isolation and paralysis of 
the influential Communist 
Party. 

In a clandestine interview, 
Seflor Manuel Almeyda. who 
beads the Socialist Party — tfae 
Conunnnist Party's most im- 
portant ally — said that mem- 
bers of the Democratic 
Alliance had invited his party 
to join a new political group 
which would exclude tbe Com- 
munists. 

Bnt be said that the tra- 
ditional co-operation between 
the two parties was stronger 
than ever and that there was a 
good chance that one of 
Chile's smaller left-wing par- 
ties might reach an agreement 
with the Socialist-Communist 
coalition. 

Seflor Gabriel Valdes, presi- 
dent of the Christian Demo- 
cratic Party, Chile's largest, 
suggested that the real pur- 
pose of the state of siege was to 
intimidate the opposition. 

He reiterated to journalists 
his party’s willingness to nego- 
tiate with the armed forces and 
its rejection of the 1980 
constitution drawn np by the 
military Government. 

He emphasized that in the 
(ace of the growing violence, 
the only alternatives in Chile 
were “the rifle or tbe vote ... 
democracy or dictators hip". 


More firepower for Afghan rebels 


By Nicholas Beeston 

Afghan guerrillas have im- 
proved- their anti-aircraft ar- 
senal with a new rapid-fire gun 
and sophisticated missiles, 
according to reports from ihe 
region: 

One report in this week’s 
Time magazine said that the 


rebels have as many as 40 
Swiss-made Oerlikon 20 mm 
guns, giving them their first 
effective weapon against the 
Soviet Mi 24 helicopter gun- 
ships which have inflicted 
heavy losses on the rebels. 

Other eyewitness accounts 
said that two Soviet heli- 


copters had been shot down 
on Thursday by sophisticated 
hand-held missiles, possibly 
US-made Stingers. 

The Afghan Islamic Agency, 
which is dose to the rebel 
movement, said that the heli- 
copters had been attacked by 
unidentified missiles

Part 2: The castle under siege 


I f an Englishman's home is 
his castle, it is under assault 
from all sides. And if he 
lowered the drawbridge to 
let us look over his property, 
wc might be shocked to find that 
he is struggling to stave off 
eviction by doing without a car, 
holidays and nights out and he has 
not married his partner in order to 
save tax so that he can pay the 
mortgage. 

But married couples can also get 
caught in a vicious circle: the 
worry caused by heavy mortgages 
often strains a marriage to break- 
ing point. And. upon break up. 
one partner cither will not or 
cannot contribute to the mortgage 
payments. Result repossession. 

Exaggeration? Isolated in- 
stances? Not according to the 
research. One in every 20 peopfe 
with a mortgage — 300.000 in all — 
is seriously in arrears, says a study 
by Dr John Doling of Birmingham 
University's Centre for Urban 
Regional Studies. 

Official figures show the num- 
ber of homes being repossessed 
running at record levels: 10.870 in 
1 9S4 to 1 6.770 last year, a jump of 
54 per cent. And renewed money 
market pressure last night for 
higher interest rates, including the 
cost of mortgages, would exacer- 
bate the situation. 

The Times has spoken to young 
engaged couples who have found 
mortgage brokers sounding more 
like marriage brokers: get married 
or get a house, but you can't do 
both. The reason: lax relief on 
their incomes assessed separately 
provided they are single. 

The situation looks like getting 
worse unless there is action soon. 
Warnings from every quarter — 
the Bank of England to agitprop 
housing groups — talk of the need 
for everything from controls on 
easy credil to a national “hotline'' 
to help desperate owners running 
up debts. 

But the Government is not at 
present contemplating anything 
more than "voluntary action" 

A Times investigation 
by Jack Crossley, 
Christopher Warman 
and Michael Dynes 


while attempts to provide help for 
home owners in trouble have been 
stymied by a lack of funds. 

Housing groups around the 
country claim that the race to get 
onto the properly ladder is creat- 
ing the very problem h is sup- 
posed to solve — homelessness. 
Jerome Monahan, of the London 
Housing Aid Centre (SHAC) says: 
"People are becoming homeless 
through repossessions which have 
been brought about by the ir- 
responsible lending policies of 
building societies. People are be- 
ing encouraged to buy something 
they simply can't afford." 

The bigger building societies, 
however, blame the smaller ones, 
which they say are offering 
"ridiculous" sums in order to 
compete in the market 

So the housing boom, which in 
theory should be good for most 
people involved in it turns out to 
be a nightmare for those not 
already sitting in an appreciating 
asset on which they have a 
relatively comfortable mortgage 
and a secure income. 

But what is the likelihood of a 
downturn in the market and 
would it make much difference? 



it's. 


T he big guns of lending do 
not see foresee a col- 
lapse. The Halifax. 
Britain's laigest building 
society, says: “We do not 
expect the rate of increase to 
continue, but on the other hand 
we do not predict a collapse in 
house prices. If the Halifax had 
any such concern, we would feel it 
our duty to warn existing and new 

borrowers." 

But it admits that a sudden fall 
in prices could be triggered if the 
market was suddenly 'flooded' 
with housing or if there was a fall 
in demand for housing — both 
highly unlikely. 

A rapid fall in real (after 
inflation) incomes could also 
spark a collapse, or "an overnight 
removal of mortgage interest tax 
relief or a dramatic increase in 
mongage interest rates" — again 
unlikely. "Even the rapid and 
substantial changes we saw in 
some of these areas in the 1970s 
and early 1980s failed to bring 
about any widespread decline in 
house prices,” the Halifax 
concludes.

A property boom should mean a 
sellers* market, bnt try telling that 
to Rial and Dorothy Gersok. They 
have been trying to sell a home in 
Lee Crescent North, Aberdeen, for 
18 months. They are not alone. 

No fewer than 45 houses are up 
for sale in the crescent, or just over 
one in ten, and the «nam reason is 
the world oil-price slump which 
has hit Britain's premier off town 
at a cost of 7,000 jobs. And with 
the Royal Bank of Scotland 
forecasting anything between 
5,000 and 1 1,000 more jobs at risk 
over the next three years, pros- 
pects are bleak for the Gersoks 
and their neighbours. 

“We expected to be out last 
summer but now we are keeping 
our fingers crossed for next sum- 
mo- before our eldest son starts 
secondary school," said Mrs 
Gersok. Mr Gersok, an engineer, 
moved the family to Aberdeen four 
years ago to get work in the then- 
buoyant oil industry. The house 
cost £42^00. 

“We are asking £454)00 which 
is the lowest we can go to break 
even bnt so for nobody is 
interested," said Mrs Gersok. 

“Some of our neighbours have 


bad to sell for less chan they paid 
out of desperation. I hope it 
doesn't come to that for us." 

There are more than 5,000 
unsold bouses in north-east of 
Scotland half of them in Aber- 
deen. Normally die number of 
properties for sale in the region 
would be between 1,200 and 2,000. 

Hardship worse as 
more redundancies 
are announced 

Aberdeen solicitors, who 
95 per cent of the property market 
estimate that the average selling 
price of a house has dropped by 1A 
per cent in the last year. 

The foil, however, is not spread 
evenly; the bottom end of the 
market is hardest hit particularly 
with first time buyers who took on 
100 pa- cent package deals which 
in eluded carpets and other fittings. 

Ken Ferguson, Aberdeen man- 
ager of the Abbey National, said: 
"The problem is that there are so 
many redundancies in the ofi 
industry and people are having to 
leave the dty bnt nobody is coming 


in to create the market This is 
causing real hardship with people 
being unable to pay their mort- 
gages or bridging loans." 

Mr Ferguson said that daring 
die previous buoyant period his 
office would be handling perhaps 
seven or eight repossessions in a 
year. The figure is now approach- 
ing 50 a year, although he empha- 
sized this was stiff about the 
national average. 

In an attempt to move houses, 
companies like Barrett have been 
offering exchange deals under 
which they buy a house back at the 
foil market value, as long as the 
occupant then buys a more expen- 
sive bouse from the same 
company. 

This has helped people with

It may only have encouraged them

Getting to grips

has recently moved from Aberdeen 
back to London claimed tint foe 
"crisis" had been exaggerated.

in Aberdeen have become very

that the fall market value b asked.

Found and lost: Lesley Aldridge and the home she set her heart on 


A fter a wearying search. 
24-year-old midwife Les- 
ley- Aldridge was de- 
lighted when she found 
the home she wanted at a price she 
could afford. Lesley signed the 
contract, moved out of a nurses' 
home and went on holiday, 
expecting to move into her iwo- 
up. two-down when she returned. 

Instead, she found herself 
homeless — she had been 
gazumped And she claims that 
the Abbey National. Britain's 
second largest building society, 
did the gazumping. 

The two-bedroom house in St 
Mary Cray. Kent, had carried a 
price tag of £37.500. But when the 
Abbey National, which had re- 
possessed it from a mortgage 
defaulter, had it revalued, the 
price soared to £44.800. which is 
beyond Lesley's means. 

Abbey National, which denies 
gazumping because ii will be the 
mortgage defaulter and not the 
society which gets the extra cash, 
blames the 1962 Building Societies 
Act for the mess. The law says that 
building societies act as inistees 
for the person whose home they 
repossess and have a legal 
responsibility to $et the best price. 

The Abbey National admits that 
the situation is unfair on the nurse 
and- that revaluations midway 
through a sale are “not normaL" 
Bui they add that property prices 
had risen substantially in the area. 
“This case involves an overriding 
legal duly on the pan of the society 
and. possibly, different moral 
pressures which may appear to 
conflict," says their legal depart- 
ment. The sodetv has since 
dropped the price to Miss 
Aldridge to £42.000. 

Whatever the merits of Lesley's 
case, it is unusual: gazumping as 
such certainly is not - especially 
during a boom. Gazumping is as 
dubious a practice as the word is of 
dubious origin, but it means that 
the seller raises the price after an 



agreement to sell it at a certain 
price. It occurs before contracts 
are exchanged, so it is not illegal. 

It has not been as widespread as 
in the booms of the 1970s. but 
plenty of it has come to light, 
particularly in the fashionable 
parts of London. Recently, an 
offer of £1 25,000 was accepted for 
an unmodemised three bedroom 
house in Fulham. Then a second 
buyer appeared and the house was 
eventually sold for £142.000. but 
in this case gazumping had its 
honourable side — the vendor paid 
the victim's expenses. 

In general, estate agents oppose 
a law to control gazumping nor do 
they think the answer lies with the 
Scottish system of house-buying, 
where acceptance of an offer is 
binding on both parties. The snag 
is that ail the preparation for 
buying. including surveys and 
finance, has to be done in advance 
of the offer, in which case there 
can be several people who have 
paid fees, and only one winner. 

P eter Short of the Roval 
Institution of Chartered 
Surveyors says gazumping 
could be countered by 
measures to speed up the buying 
process. And Mark Bolcat sec- 
retary-general of the Building 
Societies Association, agrees. 
"You should not try to treat the 
symptoms, but the cause, which is 
the length of lime it takes to buy. If 
local authority searches and legal 
work arc speeded up, there is no 
reason why a contract should not 
be signed in two or three weeks." 

The Law Commission is 
expected to report to the Govern- 
ment by the end of the vear on 
ways to combat gazumping. Mr 
John Patten. Minister for Hous- 
tng. told The Times that the 
Government wants to stop it, 
preferably by self-regulation. “But 
legislation is not ruled oul " he 
said.

SAINT-LAURENT 


national rcady-io-wear 
designers has never been 
Jiigher — and neither have 
.wiheir prices. 

The idea that off-the-peg 
clothes bring fashion to all is 
; mocked by price-tags that are 
approaching those of haute 
. couture. In fact, in the United 
•-States the up-market conce- 
ptions are called “couture” — 
which is not technically cor- 
*. reel, but expresses the spirit of 
■ . these elitist clothes. 

But fashion should be for 
all. And it is one of the lesser- 
* known facts that many in- 
fluential designers do bring 
out diffusion ranges that are 
within the orbit of feshion- 
m conscious women. 

The dissemination of de- 
.. signer ciothcs is the fashion 
_ story of the mid-1980s. The 
« rcady-io-wcar creators have 
been a fashion force for a 
decade. Their bi-annual pa- 
. radcs — which start again in 
Milan next weekend — are a 
test of skill, verve and 
imagination. The show is the 
. image-maker for the creative 
designer, the fountainhead of 
style for the label and a source 
of inspiration (not to say 
plagiarism) for the clothing 

industry- 

£ Bui now the designers are 
• “knocking off* themselves, by 
'..introducing tiered collections 
that reduce prices of the basic 
^components of the designer 
look to approachable levels. 

' With a new autumn outfit 
7 from an international designer 
pushing £1.000, such price 
cuts are relative. But some 
major designers, including 
Giorgio Armani and Ralph 
. Lauren, are now bringing in a 
third stratum of style; offering 
the clothes at a fraction of the 
cost of the main collection.

T he dissemination of 
designer names 
through licensing is 
nothing new. Paris 
couture has been do- 
ing it for decades, with Pierre 
Cardin the founding father of 
the concept that anything 
from umbrellas to underpants 
— if well-designed — sells 
better with a designer swing 
ticket on it. 

The current fashion trend is 
based on the belief that the 
buying public identifies with a 
designer's image and looks for 
a specific feature: Krizia's 
animal motifs or Jean Muir’s 
precision cutting; Armani's

PEOPLE IN FASHION 


Cover-up 

Di-lemma 

I hear that the Princess 
of Wales is in some di- 
lemma over her wardrobe 
for the Gulf tour in 
November. 

Diana has derided to 
interpret the female cover- 
up as head, elbows, knees 
and iocs. Yet her royal 

mother-in-law set a 

convention of ankle-length 
skirls on her visit to Saudi 
in 1979. Ken Fleetwood at 
Hardy Amies designed for 
the Queen a floor-sweeping 
pleated skin that was then 
chopped off and worn to 
Ascot ' the following 
summer. 

The fashion-conscious 




Princess of Wales can wear 
her Dynasty-style Bruce 
Oldfield evening dresses 
but she is finding it more 
difficult to adapt her V-for- 
Victor Edelstein daytime 
silhouette of wide shoul- 
ders and short, slim skin. 
When the hemline drops to 
mid-calf, the length Diana 
has derided to wear for the 
Gulf, it looks dowdy. 

After the initial panic, 
die has now asked David 
and Elizabeth Emanuel to 
create a wardrobe of 
longer, softer dollies suit- 
able for the desert states. 
With designer shoulder 
pads on the way out and 
Joan Collins threatening to 
kill off Alexis next year, the 
Princess of Wales may be 
ahead of the fashion trend, 
by giving longer skins a 
whin.

BLACKPOOL 



DIARY 


A plan to tic a future Labour 
government to the views of its 
backbenchers has already been 
attacked — by the potential back- 
benchers themselves. The idea 
was contained in a letter to Neil 
Kinnock from a new pressure 
group. PPC Liaison, representing 
more than 1 00 Labour par- 
liamentary candidates. But at a 
meeting at the Winter Gardens 
conference centre it became clear 
that, far from liaising with their 
leader, the group was failing to 
liaise with itself. Candidates, 
including John Reid. Kinnoefc's 
former speech writer, angrily criti- 
cized Peter Hain. who drafted the 
letter, for not consulting them 
about its contents.

responsibility for the stunt — as he 
did for ‘'Kremlin sends con-

ham Common a year or so ago.

Preview 


Unable to wait for Neil Kinnock’s 
speech today, the soft-left Labour 
Coordinating Committee has 
published a satirical “early draft" 
in its daily news sheet In (as my 
friends in the lobby would pm it) a 
strong appeal for unity, Kinnock is 


quoted as saying: “I am the leader. 
1 say what goes — and Til tell you 
where I am going to put all those 
imp 9 ssibilist policies you keep 
passing. Right up Gwyneth Dun- 
woody’s fur coat" The oration 
continues: “It's quite simple 
really: never mind the policies, 
just follow me. I ask only this 
small favour of each of you: blind 


loyally". If only David Steel had 
such a way with words.

SPLIT 


Blackpool's spadous Winter Gar- 
dens were not designed for this 
security-sensitive age; Labour's 
solution has been to construct a 
sort of Berlin Wall across the 
Floral Hall, the building's main 
foyer. The trouble is that this 
barrier, which confines delegates 
to a “secure area” effectively cuts 
them off not only from their fav- 
ourite promenade area but also, 
more seriously, from the Galleon 
Bar. But there is a compensation: 
the floor-to-cciling wall is painted 
a brilliant white, and Labour is 
thinking of offering prizes for the 
best Edwina Currie graffilto by the 
end of the week.

John Baker, the CEGB's managing 
do rector, chose a guest speaker of 
redder hue even than the free-

flattering the left, he conceded that 
the board was studying the fea- 
sibility of building more coal-fired 
power stations in the event of a 
Labour election victory* Skulking 
behind a pillar during Baker's 
address was John Cunningham, 
whose job as Labour's environ-

of his pro-nuclear views (Sellafteld

Philip Jacobson on the plight of Honduras, bribed to follow Washington’s orders 


Helpless pawn 
in Reagan’s 
war against the 
Sandinistas 


Tegucigalpa 
In the four y< 


In the four years since the Reagan 
administration threw the full 
weight of its moral backing — and 
as many millions of dollars as it 
could extract from Congress — 
behind the cause of the Nica- 
raguan Contras. the position of US 
ambassador to Honduras has 
undergone a remarkable trans- 
formation. 

Previously. Tegucigalpa was a 
diplomatic backwater, the drowsy 
lituc capital ofa laige but unpopu- 
lated and desperately poor coun- 
try. apparently untouched by the 
winds of change blowing hard 
elsewhere in Central America. A 
long tradition of military coups, 
often on what seemed absurdly 
flimsy grounds, compounded its 
sorry tag of the very first banana 
republic.Today. Washington's 
man in Tegucigalpa is rarely out of 
the public eye. his every word and 
deed recorded, scrutinized and 
endlessly analysed by Hondurans 
of every political persuasion and a 
steadily expanding corps of fellow 
diplomats. The walls of the red- 
tiled Spanish colonial houses are 
now spattered with conflicting 
slogans damning Yanqui imperi- 
alism and exhorting Reagan to 
“smash Commie trash”. Dinner 
panics in what only recently was 
the most relaxed nation in Central 
America now erupt into furious 
arguments about the impact of US 
policy on Honduras. 

At the heart of it all is (he 
presence in Honduras of about 
15.000 well-armed Contras: in 
heavily defended bases along the 
500-niilc frontier with Nicaragua, 
in training camps behind the front 
line, in luxurious villas and air- 
condiiioncd offices in the capital. 
The war they arc waging, some- 
times hotly, more often with no 
great relish, against Nicaragua's 
left-wing Sandinista regime is 
financed almost totally by Wash- 
ington. The bulk of the funds are 
administered through the US em- 
bassy. the local CIA station, 
occasionally through some more 
subterranean entity. 

Even among the many Hon- 
durans who have no great affec- 
tion for the Sandinistas there is 


growing unease about this cosy 
relationship between two sets of 
foreigners on their territory. The 
fact that the economic aid which 
Washington sends to the govern- 
ment of {’resident Jose Azcona — 
$100 million last year, with an- 
other S60 million for building up 
the armed forces — is utterly cru- 
cial to their country only makes 
them more uneasy. 

Is this a pay-off for tolerating 
the Contras as they carve out a 
sizeable slice of the coffee-rich 
border region for themselves, 
renaming it “Nucve Nicaragua”?; 
for turning a blind eye while the 
rebels assault and rob villagers, 
sometimes press-ganging them 
into service, sometimes raping 
their women? 



the military had been, as the State 
Department asserted, less than 
amicable. He had simply made a 
point of dealing with President 
Azcona first and foremost 


Certainly few Hondurans would 
disagree that the Contra factor has 
come to impinge directly on the 
stability and security of their 
country. As the leader of the 
opposition Christian Democrat 
Party observed recently: “Of 
course. US aid helps us. but 
Honduras has no independent 
foreign policy any more. We have 
on our territory displaced people, 
a permanent conflict with Nica- 
ragua. and we are isolated 
internationally." 

The position is further com- 
plicated by the involvement, 
widely known but never publicly 
discussed, of the Honduran High 
Command in a lucrative opera- 
tion that feeds off the US aid 
programme. In the words of one 
western diplomatic observer: “A 
lot of senior officers are getting 
very rich, very fast, because of the 
Contra presence. The last thing 
they want is a negotiated settle- 
ment with the Sandinistas.” 

One of the best earners, he adds, 
is the “write-off racket.” Over the 
last two or three years, the US and 
Honduras have staged several 
military exercises inside the coun- 
try involving thousands of troops 
and masses of equipment. “No- 
body has the faintest idea bow 
many pairs of boots, uniforms and 
cases of ammunition get left over. 
The Honduran military sells them 
to the Contras — sometimes even 


trucks and weapons." In such 
circumstances, handling the Hon- 
duran generals is obviously one of 
the US ambassador's most dedi- 
cate undertakings. 

Reagan's man when the 
commitment to the Contras was 
really getting under way was John 
D. Negroponte. a clever, am- 
bitious and hard-nosed diplomat 
From the start, Negroponte ap- 
plied himself with vigour and 
considerable success to building a * 
raggle-taggle bunch of CIA-spon- 
sored guerrillas into a small army. 

To this end, he assiduously 
cultivated the Honduran High 
Command, to the point where it 
appeared to some observers that 
he valued their support above that 
of the civilian government In the 
process, the way he pursued US 
objectives deeply offended many 
Hondurans prominent in politics 
and the media. To them. Neg- 
roponte became “the Pro-Consul” 
trying to run their country from 
his gleaming white embassy. 

When Negroponte left last year, 
many Honduran officials believed 
that Washington's principal in- 
terest in their country was to use it 
as a launching pad for Reagan’s 
crusade against the Sandinistas. 
All those millions of aid dollars 
were looking more and more like a 
bribe. 

To take over at this acutely 
sensitive moment, the Reagan 
administration chose John Ferch. 
a career diplomat with years of 
service in Latin America, includ- 
ing Cuba. In no time Ferch had 
endeared himself to Hondurans 


by his decisive role in persuading 
President Roberto Suazo to step 
down when his term of office 
expired. The elections that fol- 
lowed marked the first orderly 
transfer of civilian power for more 
than half a century. Given this 
splendid start. Fetch's relations 
with the incoming President 
Azcona were understandable cor- 
dial. and more important, correct 
In Azcona's words, “as ambas- 
sador he always respected Hon- 
duras and kept in mind that the 
dignity of this country came 
before anything." 

Yet within 12 months Ferch was 
out The official State Deportment 
explanation was failure to follow 
US policy lines and mismanage- 
ment “Hogwash,” Ferch told a 
reporter from Newsday who 
tracked him down later to the 
Canadian backwoods where he is 
building a log cabin. Speaking 
with the freedom of one who has 
put the diplomatic service behind 
him. Ferch said be was sacked 
because the Reagan administra- 
tion had decided to abandon its 
slated policy of using the Contras 
and a trade embargo to put 
pressure on the Sandinistas to 
agree to talks about democratic 
reform. • 

What Washington is now seek- 
ing. Ferch claims, is a straight- 
forward military solution: this 
implies much greater co-operation 
with the Honduran High Com- 
mand. almost certainly at the cost 
of US links with the elected 
government. It was not true. Ferch 
added, that his own relations with 


What the next US ambassador 
— Everett Briggs, another experi- 
enced Latin America hand — will 
find waiting in Tegucigalpa has. in 
the opinion of one European 
diplomat, all the makings of a 
fracaso: something between fiasco 
and disaster. Dumping Ferch so 
abruptly had seriously under- 
mined the cause of democracy in 
Honduras, he argues, because 
Washington seemed to be signal- 
ling that ft would turn to the 
generals in the last resort. In other 
words, the “Pro-Consular” school 
of diplomacy. Ferch himself in- 
sists that such an approach is 
doomed because the Hondurans 
simply will not take orders. 

In the end. most observers 
agree, it boils down to a major 
gamble by the US on being able to 
whip the Contras into good 
enough shape finally to achieve 
something on the battlefield. Out- 
side Washington, nobody, not 
even their US instructors, gives 
them any chance of victory over 
the large, increasingly combat- 
hardened Sandinista army. “You 
can hand over crates of new rifles, 
new field radios, even new mis- 
siles to use against the helicopter 
gunships. but you can't give the 
troops the cutting edge of sheer 
commitment,” one US military 
source argues. 

Contra morale is terrible, he 
maintains. “The only time those 
farmboys sweating it out in border 
camps see their leaders is when 
they drop by in air-conditioned 
Jeeps with quadrophonic sound 
systems.” Ail atlemps by the 
Americans to push senior Contras 
out of Tegucigalpa and into the 
bush have failed: there aren't 
enough villas with swimming 
pools out there, says one adviser. 

Talking to ordinary Hondurans, 
one sense a feeling of helplessness 
in the face of events puffing their 
country this way and that Many 
would like to see the US invade 
Nicaragua and put an end to the 
constant trouble along their fron- 
tier. Many more believe Hon- 
durans will have to accept the 
reality of living next door to a 
second Cuba and should already 
be negotiating with the Sandinis- 
las for an acceptable modus 
vivendi. 

But most common of all is the 1 
belief that they are becoming 
pawns in a struggle that can only 
do further damage to' their poor, 
weak nation. Caught somewhere 
between war and peace, incapable, 
it seems, of controlling their own 
destiny, they have nothing but 
apprehension about what now 
awaits them.

which recently made headlines 
when it lost a long and costly 
battle with Guinness to acquire 
Distillers, has said that it intends 
to keep all the 438 former Lipton 
shops open, even ihough many arc 
very small and not easily adapted 
to self-service trading. Neverthe- 
less the change will be seen as 
marking another stage in the 
seemingly inexorable advance of 
the big supermarket chains at the 
expense of the traditional retailers. 

A survev published in The 
Grucer earlier this year disclosed 
that the five largest food chains 
accounted for nearly half the total

grocery market. Top of the list was 
Sainsbury with 1 1.9 per cent, 
closely followed by Tesco with 
1 1.6 per cent (both are much 
stronger in London and the South- 
east than in the rest of the country, 
so their domination south of 
Potters Bar is even more marked). 

The .Dee Corporation (Gateway 
and International) at that time was 
in third place with 7.4 percent but 
has since acquired Fine Fare, 
which brings it very close to the 
two leaders with an estimated 1 1.5 
per cent of the market. Fourth and 


fifth respectively were Asda with 
7.1 per cent and Argyll with 5.5 
percent. 

Although separated bv nearly a 
century, the careers of Sir Thomas 
Lipton and of James Gulliver, the 
present chairman of the Argyll 
group, bear a curious similarity. 
Both were the sons of small 
Scottish grocers, and both became 
millionaires through a combina- 
tion of enterprise and ruthlessness 
that won them as many enemies as 
admirers. 

• Sir Thomas was born of Irish 


parents in Glasgow in 1850 and 
made his fortune in tea. But what 
made him a household name, in 
more senses than one. was his 
friendship with King Edward VIL 
who shared his passion for yacht- 
ing. and his five gallant but 
unsuccessful challenges for the 
America's-Cup, 

Despite the feme of his racing 
yachts — all called Shamrock — he 
was blackballed from membership 
of the Royal Yacht Squadron 
because he was 'in trade”. On one 
occasion the Kaiser Wilhelm was 


alleged to have remarked that he 
understood that his cousin, the 
King, had gone “boating with his 
grocer.” 

Gulliver, aged 56, is a product 
of Glasgow University and Har- 
vard Business School and. after a 
spell with a management con- 
sultancy firm, made his reputation 
by revitalizing the Canadian- 
owned Fine Fare chain of super- 
markers. 

His departure from Fine Fare 
was accompanied by a covenant 
preventing him from setting up in 
direct competition for two years. 
Bui four years ago, having cooled 
his heels, he acquired Presto from 
Sir James Goldsmith, and has not 
looked back since. Although he 
lists sailing among his recreational 
activities, he confesses to being 
happiest at the wheel of an open- 
topped car on a country road. 

At present there seems little to 
prevent Presto. Tesco. Sainsbury 
and the rest from accumulating an 
ever greater share of the grocery 
market. The survival of the corner 
shop would appear to depend 
upon the readiness of Asian 
traders -to remain open for long 
hours to serve the needs of urban 
dwellers who have run out of 
bread, milk, eggs or cigarettes. 

But the name Upton will be 
kept alive in, of all places. 
Gibraltar, where there are still two 
shops and a third due to open next | 
year. A company spokesman ex- I 
plained: “The name Presto means 
nothing out there.”

This immoral 


alms race 


The possession of a detailed 
scheme for changing personal 
income taxation and social se- 
curity is currently de rigucur for 
parties proclaiming “radical” poli- 
cies, but the same parties know 
that technical details alone won't 
win votes. Much more effective is 
an apparently moral appeal. 

The technicalities of the 
schemes can. of course, be criti- 
cized. This and other columns 
could bulge with arguments about 
replacement ratios, poverty and 
employment traps, earnings rules, 
age and invalidity supplements, 
marginal and average tax rates, 
uprating procedures, thresholds, 
and incentive effects: all would be 
imposingly decorated with illus- 


trative cases showing how ft is 
advantageous or disadvantageous 


to be an unemployed cohabiting 
lesbian with four children of 
obscure provenance rather than a 
faithfully married utxi driver, 
especially if he has more than 2.7 
miles to go to work, in cases a) 
where he owns and b) where he 
docs not own his cab. We might 
even have a graph. 

Such arguments, although im- 
mensely boring, are important, for 
there is no doubt that the current 
income redistribution systems arc 
indeed a mess: incomprehensible 
to taxpayers and benefit claim- 
ants, an uncoordinated patchwork 
of ad hoc and conflicting legisla- 
tion with poverty and unemploy- 
ment traps and cosily duplication 
of work by tax and social security 
bureaucrats. They need detailed 
reform, and some suggested re- 
forms such as the integration of 
taxation and benefit systems are 
highly overdue. There is also 
much necessary work to be done 
on the arithmetic, costings and 
assumptions of rival reform 
schemes. 

But it is even more important to 
scrutinize the apparent moral 
appeal. The better oft we learn, 
should not selfishly ding to the 
wealth they are lucky to have but 
pay more tax to help those less 
fortunate than themselves. Many, 
it is said, are prepared to do this: 
Mrs Thaicher is mistaken to 
assume that all share her own 
selfish, individualistic ethic 

What morality there is in this is 
false. Current income distribution 
is not the result of pure chance. 
The better off and not so well off 
are not simply the fortunate and 
the unfortunate. To an extent pre- 
tax wealth distribution is the 
reward of skill, work, sacrifice and 
risk taking and thus right just 
good. To that extent ft is wrong, 
unjust and bad coercively to 
redistribute incomes. 

Of course, it is also right that 
those with more give soine of their 
wealth to the very poor. But they 
already give fer more than some. 
They give more than the better off 
in many comparable countries. 
Professor Salm. writing in Le 
Figaro , recently compared income 
tax paid by better off families in 


ing high confidence in the ability 
of politicians and their bureau- 


of politicians and their bureau- 
crats to solve society's problems. 
Those who favour low taxes are 
sceptical about politicians' abil- 
ities to spend that money better 
than themselves, even politicians 
who can talk about replacement 
ratios. 

The ratios and the rest of the 
technical talk show the intractabil- 
ity of redistribution to past 
politicians* scheming*. Their mes- 
sage for present politidans is 
surely that it behoves them to be 
humble in the face of the 
problem's complexity and their 
predecessors’ failure. They should 
ask for less tax. not more. It also 
behoves, taxpayers eager to pay 
more tax to examine whether 
there are not other, more efficient, 
if more personally demanding 
ways to help the poor.

So what’s your 
car’s number? 


What is the legal situation of a 
person who is driving a telephone 
box at more than 60 mph? That, in 
effect, is the question raised by the 
recent police prosecution ofa man 
who was driving and phoning at 
the same lime, and was later 
acquitted. 

WelL we have had many anx- 
ious calls here at the office, some 
from worried motorists actually 
dialling us at 100 mph on the Ml. 
all wanting to know exactly what 
the law says. As luck would have 
it. the Highway Code people have 
sent us their new supplement 


entitled Teiephoning in a Car a 
Highway Code Addendum. They 
urged us not to publish it just yet. 
but wc prefer not to worry about 
silly things like that, so here ft is. 
I. A driver should at all times 
ensure that his telephone is in 
good working order. 

-- Before beginning a journey, a 
driver should ensure that: 

• The phone, is not off the hook. 

• No stickers have been fixed to 
the windscreen with messages 
such as “Call Trixie for a good 
time”. 

• Your telephone directories are 
in a position where they will not 
fell on your lap as you drive off. 

• There is no queue outside your 
car wailing to use the phone. 

3. If there is any doubt about your 
telephone working properly, a 
driver may dial 999 and report a 
big fire in a building near your 
parked vehicle. If a fire engine 
arrives within five minutes, you 
will know there is nothing wrong 
with your appliance. 

4. When making a call at any 
speed, the left hand should slowly 
be lowered on to the phone while 
the eyes are kept on the road 
ahead. If the hand should en- 
counter nothing, keep Irving. If the 
hand should pick up something 
that turns out to be a lady's 
handbag, do not attempt to phone 
with it. If. after five minutes, you 
arc unable to locate the phone, 
pull off the road and stop. 

5. Having located the phone, it 
should be placed under the chin 
and held in positron in such a way 
that the driver looks as if he is a 
well-known violinist holding his 
instrument without hands, or 
anyone else suffering from a neck 
defect. 

6. To avoid the dangers of dialling 
a long number incorrectly, place 
all such calls via the operator. 

7. As the operator never answers, a 
longnumbcr can now be dialled. 

S. Drivers should try to express 


little emotion during a phone call. 
This is for the sake of other 
drivers, who may well be alarmed 
by the sight ofa solo motorist next 
to them shouting into thin air. 
roaring with laughter, getting an- 
gry, bursting into tears, etc. 

9. If at any time you should drop 
the handset between your legs, 
pull over immediately to the side 
of the road and halt, shouting as 
you do so: “Don't go away! I’ve 
just dropped the damn thing! HI 
be with you in a moment!” 

10. At unavoidable moments of 
emotion, the following hand sig- 
nals may be used: 

• Both hands raised in the air “I 
have just phoned Test Match 
scoreline, and England are 98 for 8 
before lunch". 

• One hand repeatedly striking 
skull: “My God — I have just 
phoned home to talk to my wife, 
and the phone was answered by a 
totally strange man”. 

• One finger pointing out of the 
window: “I think this call is for 
you”. 

1 1. When a difficult corner, tricky 
gear change or motorway pile-up 
is coming up ahead, say carefully - 
into the receiver “Could you hold 
on a moment?”, then drop phone 
between knees. 

12. In anticipation of a crash, 
make sure you have a message on 
your recorded answer device 
which states: “I'm sorry, but 
although I am in the car at the 
moment, 1 am unable to come to 
the phone as I am lying un- 
conscious upside down in a ditch, 
if you leave your name and 
number. I will come back to you 
later” 

\{ al any time your caller 
snould require you to take down a 
message on a notepad, with pencil, 
the car should be steered carefully 
with knee, as when lighting a pipe, 
shaving, etc. 

14. If. while you are on the 
pnone. your other phone rings, a 
second call should be started only 
at a speed less than 60 mph. (Note: 
n is hard to place two phones 
under chin.) 

15. If, while phoning, you also 
wish to change cassettes, light a 
cigarette or blow your nose, ask 
your secretary to lean over and 
steer for a while. In the event of a 
crash, she may be named as the 
guilty driver. For the law on 
phoning while smoking, cassette- 
changing, pointing out scenery etc, 

send for our Highway Code book- 
let. Look - A ’o Hander 

16. Good luck!

different countries. His objective 
was to urge foe reduction of the 
effective French rate of 25 per 
cent. He noted the Italian 24 per 
cent, the American 17percentand 
the Japanese 1 1 percent. Britain's 
effective rate is 27 per cent. 

This argues that the better off 
here give more than enough 
already, but it does not mean they 
give it to the poor. Like all taxes it 
is paid to middlemen politicians 
and ft is these people's record with 
it that is so dismal. The fact is that 
the politidans have already been 
given enough money by the 
taxpayer to end acute poverty and 
they have not done the job. Why 
give them any more? 

It is morally imperative to help 
the poor. It is not morally imper- 
ative. arid may well be morally 
reprehensible, for taxpayers to 
squander yet more money on the 
politicians' failed policies rather 
than help foe poor directly. The 
more proclaimed eagerness 
among the wealthy to pay more 
tax may be not only stupid but 
lazy, irresponsible and lacking in 
effective charity. Those who 
would help the poor cannot 
discharge their obligation solely by 
rooting in tbeir capacious pockets. 
They are no less obliged to direct 
the contents of those pockets and 
see they reach their intended 
beneficiary. 

Conversely ft is not necessarily 
selfish to try to keep wealth - to 
keep it, that is, from politidans. It 
is not even “individualistic". In- 
dividuals strive for wealth not just 
for themselves but for their fam- 
ilies. to bring up their children as 
well as possible, give to charities, 
spend on the arts or the ecologi- 
cally fashionable countryside, in- 
deed to invest and create jobs, to 
generate wealth and welfare. The 
morality of individuals' use of 
their wealth varies, but not 
according to the tax they pay. 

Taxation indicates something 
else. It is a measure not or 
morality but politicization. Those 
who favour high taxes are express-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


1 Pennington Street, London El 9XN Telephone: 01-481 4100 


LABOUR’S GRAND ILLUSION 


Mr Kinnock is displeased with 
the American Defence Sec- 
retary, Mr Caspar Weinberger, 
tor staling openly some of the 
consequences of Labour’s pol- 
• pr on nuclear weapons. He 
no right to his displeasure. 
The British people are entitled 
to know the consequences of 
Labour's policy as these are 
son by the allied nation on 
which Naso principally de- 
pends. They are entitled to as 
much evidence as they can gel 
on this matter of life and 
death, and to as much time as 
possible in which to absorb it 
before the next election. 

At the moment, understand- 
ing is clouded by the pretence 
^ihat Labour policy is simply 
^.about the weapons with which 
Britain should or should not 
defend itself, and that it carries 
nd danger to the West or to 
Naio. That is how Mr Kinnock 
wishes us to look at it But 
rational study of his remarks 
last weekend shows that it is a 
false image. 

There are two quite separate 
questions which must not be 
confused. The first is whether 
the United Kingdom should 
abandon or keep its own 
nuclear deterrent which fur- 
ther breaks down into two 
subsidiary questions; should it 
replace Polaris when that 
weapon is obsolete but keep it 
meanwhile, or should it aban- 
don nuclear weapons forth- 
with? Since abandoning 
Britain's independent deter- 
rent within a nuclear-armed 
Nato (in which we continued 
fully to cooperate) would not 
necessarily jeopardize the 
safely of the West the ques- 
tion of Britain's nuclear capac- 
ity is secondary. 

This does not mean that 
abandoning the UK's nuclear 
defence is wise, and the un- 
wisdom of doing so has been 
argued here before. Neverthe- 
less, it is possible for a full- 
hearted Nato supporter to 
argue (as even some Conser- 
vatives and members of the 
defence establishment do) that 


as the expense of Trident 
makes it harder for us to 
maintain conventional de- 
fence at an adequate level, we 
cannot continue to affoid it 
The Alliance (though not the . 
Liberal Assembly) favours a 
third policy, which is to re- 
place the purely British deter- 
rent with a European one. 

Mr Kinnock proposes some- 
thing much more damaging. 
He intends also to require the 
US to remove all cruise missile 
bases from the UK and to 
forbid the stockpiling of any 
US nuclear weapons here. But 
that is not all. He declares, in a 
simulacrum of emotional hon- 
esty, that he would not wish 
the US to protect Britain with 
nuclear weapons. “I think it 
would be immoral to do so.” 

Since morality is indivisible, 
that can only mean that in Mr 
Kinnock's opinion Nato 
should abandon nuclear de- 
fence altogether, build up its 
conventional forces opposite a 
Soviet Union armed both with 
nuclear weapons and a su- 
perior weight of conventional 
arms, and (having put tempta- 
tion in Moscow's way) wait to 
see what happened. 

Of course, the US would not 
oblige Mr Kinnock by going 
non-nuclear, and he knows it 
That is why his policy is 
dishonest either because he 
relies on the Americans' not 
indulging in his kind of 
“morality” or because he is 
willing to put his country and 
Europe at the mercy of Mos- 
cow without saying so. 

But even assuming America 
maintained its defence of 
Europe, the task . would be 
much harder. Spain is already 
negotiating for fewer US 
nuclear submarine bases, and 
though NATO has cruise mis- 
sile bases in Holland, West 
Germany and Italy, the Left in 
all those countries would be 
encouraged by the Labour 
action to press to follow suit 

In the US itself the powerful 
lobbies which favour with- 
drawal to Fortress America on 


the grounds that Europe does 
not contribute enough to its 
own defence would be heart- 
ened. Britain would be far 
more estranged from -Nato 
than Norway and Denmark 
which, even though they reject 
nuclear bases, do not reject the 
nuclear umbrella. 

Mr Kinnock says he- would 
not wish to close all US bases 
capable of being used by 
nuclear armed aircraft or mis- 
siles. He would only get rid of 
the weapons. The US might 
still remain on those terms in 
the hope of a British govern- 
ment less inimical to the safety 
of the West 

But there is a more fun- 
damental question than even 
that to be asked. What would 
Prime Minister Kinnock do if 
the Soviet Union launched an 
attack on Nato in Western 
Europe which then escalated 
to some nuclear level? Would 
he hastily send a surrender 
signal to Moscow, warn Wash- 
ington against any nuclear 
retaliation and refuse to give 
any help to the country offer- 
ing the nuclear umbrella? Or 
would he belatedly agree that 
the nuclear-capable British 
bases could be used, having 
simply contrived to handicap 
the speed of action? 

What Labour is seeking now 
is a policy fundamentally dif- 
ferent from the “rene- 
gotiation” of Polaris on which 
Lord Wilson went to the 
country as a means of keeping 
his left-wing quiet. That sim- 
ply integrated our deterrent 
into the Nato command, 
whereas Mr Kinnock would 
disown a nuclear-armed Nato. 
But of course, Nato is a 
nuclear-armed alliance (until 
such time as multilateral nego- 
tiations determine otherwise) 
or it is nothing. Labour's 
policy would work towards 
making it nothing while 
pretending that it was still 
something. It is a dishonest 
and dangerous policy and the 
nation must understand what 
it entails. 


SHORT-TERM MARKET TALKING BLUES 


Mr Nigel Lawson, speaking in 
Washington last weekend at a 
meeting of the International 
Monetary Fund's Interim 
Committee, complained about 
“an almost unhealthy 
preoccupation, in the markets 
and in the Press, with very 
short-term concerns." Alas, 
however long-term the in- 
tentions. short term problems 
are what such international 
gatherings are all about. And 
judged by this harsh criterion, 
the autumn round of financial 
diplomacy has so tar been a 
marked failure. 

It is sterling rather than the 
dollar which has borne the 
brunt of exchange market 
turbulence in recent days — 
despite the substantially 
higher interest rales available 
in sterling. Three factors have 
turned the pound once again 
into the favourite speculative 
target: political qualms as the 
election draws nearer, the 
developing trade deficit, and 
concern about trends in pay. 

The fall in sterling is the 
natural corrective to the trade 
deficit. But pay trends remain 
an unsolved puzzle for the 
Government. And the elec- 
toral uncertainty premium will 
doubtless fluctuate as the elec- 
tion approaches. In the short 
term — again - the best that 
Ministers can do is to persuade 
the markets that these separate 


The British have enjoyed Na- 
tional Service ever since it 
ended. So too. by and large, 
has the .Army. Middle-aged 
businessmen now look back 
upon their two years with the 
colours as they might on 
boiled cabbage at school - 
something which, unpleasant 
at the time, was really rather 
good for one. The exhibition. 
-The Best Years of Their 
Lives’*, which has just opened 
at the Imperial War Museum, 
will be full of them. 

Curiously it is they, rather 
than their old enemies on the 
barrack square, who ever 
yearn for its return. The call 
for conscription to be reintro- 
duced is usually based upon 
the theory that military disci- 
pline would have a cauterising 
effect upon hooligans. 

The services by contrast 
resent this tendency to look 
upon their chosen ’profession 
as a form of penal servitude. In 
1955. about halfway through 
the National Service experi- 
ence. Field Marshal Lord 
Montgomery described 
conscription as an “essential 
factor of modern defence.” By 
nQW. however, the Armed 


problems are manageable and 
do not add up to a crisis. 

Such “jawboning” some- 
times works. When oil prices 
started to collapse in January 
this year, there was very strong 
pressure in markets for a 
second rise in base rates after 
the one point increase to 
12'/2%. But briefing about the 
relatively modest role played 
by the North Sea in the British 
economy helped to persuade 
financial traders that a further 
rate rise was unnecessary. 
Since then base rates have 
fallen to 10%. 

The scope for future falls in 
rates will depend very heavily 
on movements in interest rates 
elsewhere. But with real in- 
terest rates already at record 
high levels, inflation lower 
than for years and economic 
growth still hesitant, it is 
reasonable to ask whether 
higher rates are strictly nec- 
essary. 

For the moment the 
markets' reply is that they are. 
And the failure of the world's 
financial leaders to patch up 
their differences and to renew 
the spirit of last year's Plaza 
agreement on orderly ex- 
change rates will do nothing to 
reassure. 

Yet if we follow the 
Chancellor's advice and raise 
our eyes to the medium term, 
the outlook is not unattractive. 
As the world adjusts to the 

MEMORIES 

Forces have long since learned 
to live without it and would 
regard the sudden influx of 
recalcitrant youth with deep 
and well-founded misgivings. 

Today's professional 
serv icemen are better educated 
and motivated than those 
reluctant anti-heroes of the 
'fifties. In an age of high tech 
and terrorism, this is just as 
well. In the unlikely event of 
war breaking out in Central 
Europe, there would be not 
enough time to teach the 
butchers, bakers and candle- 
stick-makers how to fly a 
fighter or launch a missile. 

One disadvantage of the 
change, however, is a shortage 
of reserves. Although it is 
assumed that the next war 
would be a very short one, it is 
worth remembering that such 
predictions have been made 
before and have turned out to 
be wrong. While the 
reiniroduction of National 
Service would be politically 
unacceptable, there is still 
scope for expanding the re- 
serves so that the forces would 
not run out of manpower. 

The Youth Training 
Scheme, as far as the services 
arc concerned, is now proving 


lower level of oil prices, the 
extra spending power which 
they have put in the pockets of 
the oil consuming nations will 
prove a powerful engine of 
expansion — just as higher oil 
prices proved a powerful en- 
gine of contraction in the 
seventies. 

If interest rates remain rel- 
atively high around the world, 
this reflects the continuing 
caution of investors who have 
only recently been through a 
period of very high inflation. 
Wringing out their inflationary 
psychology will take time. 

Major imbalances in the 
world economy remain. Ger- 
many and Japan enjoy large 
trade surpluses counterposed 
to America’s massive deficit. , 
But the large and continuing 
fall in the value of the dollar 
since Plaza will go some way to 
re-establishing a better bal- 
ance. 

The Americans would like 
to see some of the adjustment 
occurring partly through fiscal 
expansion in the surplus coun- 
tries. But where Bonn and 
Tokyo were ready to agree to 
some depreciation in the dol- 
lar. they are not prepared to 
alter their own economic 
management And while all 
the adjustment is forced back 
onto exchange rates, the mar- 
kets are bound to remain 
unstable. 


a modest success. Since it 
began three years ago. 1 1,000 
teenagers have volunteered for 
YTS service in the ranks. Only 
3.000 have been acceptable — 
which is substantially fewer 
than the forces could accom- 
modate. On the credit side, 
however, as many as 60 per 
cent have opted to sign on as 
regulars at the end of their 
YTS training. Others who 
have returned to civilian life, 
have done ' so with fresh 
qualifications — and this num- 
ber should now be increased 
with the expansion of the YTS 
period to two years. 

The scheme is voluntary. 
But it involves young 'people 
in public service in a way 
which might otherwise be 
impossible. Whether some 
form of reserve commitment 
should be introduced is worth 
consideration — though at 
present the Ministry of De- 
fence is doubtful. Certainly it 
is worth further investment by 
the Government io bring it to 
the attention of school-leavers. 
Perhaps one day; they too 
might Icam to reminisce about 
Cauerick and Aldershot in the 
way their fathers do — and 
with much more reason. ,

scheme existed 60 years ago. In 
those days it sometimes happened 
that a school-leaver won a scholar- 
ship or exhibition, worth £80 to 
£100 a year, to a university, but . 
still could not afford io take up the 
award. 

If the school-leaver lived in 
Kent he (or she) was lucky, for in 
the 1920s the Kent County Coun- 
cil offered, out of the rates, loans 
to promising students who other- 
wise would not have been able to 
go to a university. The loans were 
free of interest. On graduation the 
student received a letter from the 
Kent Director -of Education with 
congratulations and an invitation 
to suggest how the new graduate 
would like to repay the loan. 

This imaginative initiative on 
the pan of a local authority 
opened the gate to higher educa- 
tion for several young people who 
otherwise would have found that 
gate dosed. I know; 1 was one of 
them.

From Dr Helmut Weigel, 

Sir. The decision of the university 
vice-chancellors to give“relucrant 
support” for a mixed system of 
grants and loans to students, as 
reported in your columns i 
(September 25), prompts me to 
offer a suggestion which is a 
variant on the much-criticized . 
loan scheme and is based on 
personal experience. 

Assessment for the purpose of : 
the award of a degree to students r 
in universities and colleges is “ 
largely based on attainment and : 
proficiency, but the effort made, 
i.c.. die hard work that has gone 
into the study, is. quite correctly. - 
rarely, if at all taken into account. : 
l would like to suggest therefore 
that the loan may be linked with 
the effort made. The principle of 
my suggestion is as follows: 

If students were to receive a 
State loan, ihey could then also 
elect to submit themselves to a 
continuous assessment of their 

- effort. If! at the end of each term,.' 
the university or college concludes 
that the student has. irrespective 
of his attainment and proficiency. 

- maintained throughout the term a 
high standard of effort, then the 
loan for that term .is . converted 
into a grant, - i.e.. it is no longer 
repayable. ' 

.. 1 believe that a loan scheme 
based on this principle is sound 
both politically and educationally. 
Also, it should not be beyond the' 
universities, our finest institu- 
tions. to work out details which 

Poor spelling 

From M r R. J. O. Meyer 
Sir, Mrs Joanna Tanon Brown 
(September 22) has a father- or 
mother-in-law who has passed on 
the “bad spelling” syndrome to 
her husband, who in turn has had 
a child with this problem. • • 
Having spent more than 50 
yeare in the field of remedial 
education I will stick out my neck 
and suggest that all three of- these 
intelligent persons are dominantly 
sinistral (especially as regards the 
eye) and were not taught to read 
phonetically but by “took and say 
word sheet” methods. 

These are excellent for the 90 
per cent of the population wjio are 
dextral and therefore able to 
combine “word recognition 7 ’ with 
reading, but fetal for the 10 per 
cent who are sinistral in that when 
they “look and say" a difficult 

Drunken driving 

From Dr Alex Comfort 
Sir. There is a move afoot to 
encourage the public to report 
drunken drivers. Apart from pub- 
licans. who might well be reluc- 
tant. the best-placed citizen to do 
this without the suspicion of 
malice is- the radio-equipped 
driver. 

Most such reports in England 
come from taxi drivers. In Amer- 
ica. where I was for'several years 
an emergency citizen-band mon- 
itor. calls from truckers and 
motorists reporting drunken or 
erratic driving were a main part of 
traffic, and did much for proven- ■ 
lion and the Highway PatroTs - 
arrest rate. An offender would be 
called-in at one point by a driver, 
followed up the coast from base 
station- to base station, and find 
the Highway Patrol waiting for 
him at a suitable point: ; 

One of the most cost-effective 
ways of increasing police effective- 
ness would be to monitor (or 
secure volunteers to monitor) 
Channel 9 and to increase the 
number of vehicles equipped with ' 
citizen-band. The Department of 
Trade and Industry might even 
permit the use of cheap AM 
(amplitude modulation) equip- 
ment to approved individuals 
solely for this purpose.

Operations delayed 

From Mr M. H. Young • 

Sir. Dr BJ. Bouehlon (September 
24) considers it is disgraceful that 
some people should have to wait 
years for such operations as hip 
replacements, r disagree. As an 
orthopaedic surgeon 1 was taught 
my craft by surgeons who never 
performed the operation. It was 
not available. 

Hip replacement surgery' did 
not evolve through the benign 
providence of the NHS. It resulted 
from the vision and ibe commit- 


wQuId allow it to be operated both 
easily and fairly. 

My own experience dates back 
some four decades at the univer- 
sity in Aachen. There was no 
resource for grams whatsoever. 
Even tuition fees had to be paid in 
full. However, wc could elect to 
have our efforts assessed. If the 
professor concluded that our effort 
. in Ills course was of the standard 
acceptable to him. he could waive 
the tuition fee for the course. 

It was much harder to have the 
tuition fees waived than to pass 
the degree examination. The in- 
come of the professor derived 
partly from the tuition fees for his 
course, which each student had to 
pay. He was not easily persuaded 
to waive the tuition fee as it meant 
a lowering of his income. 

Yours faithfully.

From Mr P. E. T. Douben ■ 

Sir. With disappointment I read 
that the vice-chancellors of the 
universities have capitulated 
under the pressure to change the 
student oant system into, a mix- 
ture of grams and loans, 
supposingly m order to increase 
student numbers. 

As a Dutch ex-university stu- 
' dent I have experienced a mixed 

- system as operated in the Nether- 
1- lands until recently. For a typical 

- Dutch student the repayments of 
the interest-free loan amount to 

. the equivalent of over £65 per 
month over a 10-year period.' I 
" regard the amount of money as a 
j considerable burden. 

Although the details of the 
• British system have yet to be 
: revealed, the aim to increase 
student numbers in this way 
seems unrealistic. People who 
7 -have the means to send their 
children to university nowadays 
will still be able to do so under a 
revised system of awards. How- 
ever. those who can't afford it now 
won't be capable in the future as 
their financial burden after the 
study will be even greater under 
the new scheme. This is not 
particularly an incentive to study. 

Recently, the Dutch have gone 
even further a system of smaller 
grants mixed with loans subject to 
interest has been introduced. This 
will further worsen the situation 
for children of lower-income par- 
ents. 

I do hope that the pending 
revision' of the British grant 
system is not a first step into the 
direction the Dutch have taken. 
Yours faithfully.

Cast upon the waters 

From Mr David Fj'sh 
Sir. PHS (September 23) refers to 
the unfavourable attitude of .the 
Severn -Trent Water Authority to- 
wards scattering family ashes in 
the river. 

My edition of Foxe's Book of 
Martyrs records, in a footnote, 
that John Wycliffe's body was 
exhumed and burnt in 1384. 
thirteen years after his death, and 
the ashes thrown into the river: 

The Brook (says (Thorn as J Fuller, in 
words which must not be forgotten) 
did convey his ashes into Avon. 
Avon into Severn. Severn into the 
narrow seas, they into the main

All eggs in one 
nuclear basket 

From Mr David Laurent Giles 
Sir. Whether we shall have four 
Trident submarines or three, as 
suggested by the “towpath letters” 
(report. September 15), there are 
two things- upon which all are 
agreed: that only one of our 
Trident submarines will- be on 
patrol at any one time; and that if 
the position of that submarine is 
known to the Soviets our whole 
independent deterrent policy will 
be in doubt 

We are told by the MoD pundits 
thaL since our- submarines are 
much quieter than the Soviets' 
and our Polaris submarines have 
never heard a Soviet submarine . 
“trailing” them, therefore the 
Soviets cannot have known the 
precise position of our Polaris 
submarines; nor will they be able 
to know the position of our 
Trident submarines. 

However reassuring that may be 
for us officially secretive British, 
the current attitude in the USA is 
quite different For 1 have just 
returned from a few days in 
Washington, and particularly in 
naval circles, where I found great 
and growing concern about the 
great strides made recently by the 
Soviets in the silencing of their 
submarines. 

Admiral Watkins. US Chief of 
Naval Operations, recently said: 

Of all Soviet Navy developments 
over the past decade, the improve- 
ments in their submarine force have 
been the most striking. 

The authoritative US Defense 
Week magazine has also said: 
while the Soviets are still behind 
the US in quieting technology, the 
. swiftness with which they have 
caught up has alarmed many anti- 
submarine warfare experts. 

If, as seems possible, the Soviets 
do soon catch up with the West in 
submarine silencing techniques, 
what guarantee can now be given 
to the long-suffering and heavily 
paying British pub lie. that there is 
" no chance that the Soviets will 
know ibe precise position of our 
single patrolling Trident sub- 
marine and thus, possibly, be in a 
position to destroy it.

Football hooligans 

From Colonel A. L King-Harman 
Sir. We m the voluntary services 
■ stand in the front line, together 
with the police and the ambulance 
service, when football hooligan- 
ism erupts and the Luion-Millwall 
. match two 'years ago gave us' in 
this county an experience that we 
would not willingly wish to 
undergo again. * 

Whilst the police and other 
Government services have a statu- 
tory duty to serve the public, our 
duty in Si John involves a moral 
obligation. 1 do not believe that 
any of us in the order would wish 
to withdraw our service to mem- 
bers of the public, nor indeed the 
hooligans themselves, because we 
disapprove of those football clubs 
who put- financial, gain above 
crowd control. Nevertheless, 
many of our units are now so 
overstretched that we have to turn 
down requests for first-aid cover. 

Where this is the case. I suggest 
that football clubs which neglect 
their duties to the public should 
not assume that their need for 
first-aid cover will necessarily take 
' . precedence over other calls on our 
services. It would, of course, be a 
difficult decision for any commis- 
sioner to take and L for one, am 
delighted that. I shall not be put in 
this position. 

The stand by the Chairman of 
Luton Football Club needs nation- 
wide support.

VAT on church repairs 

From MrJ. .-L P. White 
Sir. Although 1 sympathise with 
Sir Edward Ford (September 25) 
that relief from VAT cannot be 
obtained for the repair of churches 
and historical monuments, the 
position is not all gloom, as his 
letter implies. 

An amendment to the 1984 
Finance Act relating to listed 
buildings, a category which will 
include many old churches, allows 
“approved alterations” to be zero- 
raicd when made to “protected 
buildings”. VAT is unfortunately . 
still imposed on repair and 
" maintenance work. Guidance 
notes are available from local 
VAT offices (reference 708/1/84). 
■Perhaps this knowledge may 
encourage those responsible, es- 
pecially for church buildings: to 
see beyond mere repairs and 
actively consider whether the 
buildings could not be enhanced 
by alteration to the benefit of 
future generations. 

Yours faithfully.

ON THIS DAY 


SEPTEMBER 30 1863 


SAVAGERY ON ROAD 
TO GUILDFORD 

A paragraph which, we published 
yesterday gave an account of some ■ 
proceedings dose to the county 
town of one of our home counties 
which would have disgraced a fair 
in the wildest district of Ireland. . 
On last Sunday night, about a mile ' 
from Guildford, thirty persons. . 
who were nothing more thin quiet : 
passengers on a public high road, .. 
were seriously injured, and were _ 
placed in some danger of being 
killed. Everybody — man or woman 1 
— who happened to pass through a 
little village named St. Catherine's, . 
on the Guildford and Portsmouth 
high road, had, as it seems, to run 
the gauntlet of a shower of stones, 
from 400 roughs and vagabonds. 
The miscreants Lined the roads oo 
both sides, entrapped every peace- 
able passenger between them, and - 
then set upon him with a senseless 
and savage violence. Ladies had 
their bonnets, shawls and other 
articles of their dress torn from 
them in rude assaults, and one had 
her eye nearly cut out as she turned 
round to appeal to her assailants to 
desist. Gentlemen had their coats 
tom off their backs and received 
bad wounds on their legs from 
kicks; and some persons who tried 
to avoid the danger by taking a 
circuitous route by the river-side 
were pursued by the mob and 
forced into the river. One unfortu- 
nate gentleman, who was unwise 
enough to attempt to reason with 
the mob. was at once silenced and 
put to flight by a shower of stones: 
his house was attacked, all the 
p aling s pulled-up. and with these 
and all the wooden railings that 
could be collected at some cuttings 
on the London and South-Western 
Railway “a huge bonfire waa 
lighted up, which was seen at a long 
distance on the surrounding hills of 
the county." 

It makes matters worse that 
there does not seem to have been 
any ground either of political or 
religious animosity, for such 
wholesale savagery. The Irish rows 
to which we have compared this 
disturbance are often roused by 
some passionate partisanship, but 
this riot appeals to have been due 
to nothing but wanton mischie- 
vousness mid cruelty. It seems that 
last Sunday and the ensuing 
Sunday, the 4th of October, are 
“fair" days, on which the publicans 
by ancient custom draw beer all 
day long, even during prohibited 
hours: and some 'comparatively 
harmless play has been customary, 
in the shape of throwing chestnuts 
at the passers by, and in some 
similar rough practices, which, the 
• rustics have taken for 
“merriment". But on this occasion 
some roughs from Guildford took 
advantage of so tempting an 
opportunity, and turned what has 
generally been mere rustic horse- 
play into uncivilized brutality. 

We are not going to trouble 
ourselves to pay any attention to 
the stupid miscreants who enacted 
this disgraceful scene. It would be ~ 
as much waste of ink and paper to 
address ourselves to them as to 
appeal every week to the “better 
sense" of thieves and pickpockets. 
The whole blame of the outbreak 
must be laid on the local authori- 
ties and the police. The fault is 
entirely theirs for allowing the mob : 
to get such head. There are roughs 
enough everywhere, if they were 
given free play, to endanger the . 
public peace and to make passen- 
gers afraid of their lives. A scene 
which occurred at the Great West- 
ern Railway station on the morn- 
ing of a recent prize-fight, of which - 
a description appeared in these 
columns, was sufficient to show 
that we have a number of powerful 
and unscrupulous ruffians among 
us in London, who are only 
restrained by fear from grosser 
outrages than distinguished the 
days of Dick Turpin* The streets of 
London, would be impassable at .. 
night in a week if Sir RICHARD 
MAYNE and his civilian army 
were in abeyance. Any comity town 
and its neighbourhood could fur- 
nish 400 rougjis for a row. But it is 
the business of the authorities to 
prevent their having any opportu- 
nity for an outbreak. Such a scene 
as that of last Sunday night shows 
that Guildford is peculiarly unhap- 
py, not in its inhabitants, but in its 

authorities. . . . 

Rural eyesores 

From Mrs S. Pro hen 

Sir. All too soon the leaves will be 
falling from the trees and hedge- 
rows. and then the monstrous 
black plastic mountains of silage 
(usually held down bv old car 
lyres), hay and straw will become 
even more of an eyesore. 

Perhaps black plastic has su- 
perior protective properties to 
green plastic, but surely something 
: could be manufactured ihat ~ 
.doesn’t create such a blot on our - 
beautiful English countryside?

On our map, which does not 
go below fourth magnitude, the 
two stars on the extreme left are 
Alpha (Men Scar) and Gamma. 
Just above them are three 
fainter stars making with them 
an irregular pentagon and the 
head of the creature. 

This little group is quite easy 
to see on a dear dark night and 
so is the irregular quadrilateral 
below the E of the word Equa- 
tor. It is a part of ibe body and 
half way alone the neck is Mira 
— and you will not find it! 

This is the famous variable 
star. **the wonderful", with a 
period of about 330 days for half 
of which it is not visible to the 
naked eye. This month it is due 
to reach its minimum. At maxi- 
mum it is usually a bright third 
magnitude but can be brighter. 
That was in March when it was 
unobservable in daylight sky. 
Mira is a large pulsating “red 
giant" of low temperature. 

Mars was referred to as 
having an almost permanent 
setting time: why? As indicated

in the caption under the star 
map a given aspect of the sJcy 
occurs two hours earlier for each

constellations in the south as*

In the middle of the month 
Mars will be in Capricomus. In 
the middle of November 
Capricomus will have set, but 
the eastward motion of the 
planet is at present quite fast 
and by then it will be in 
Aquarius and have escaped the 
necessity of setting. It will 
continue to behave like this for 
the rest of the year. 

Our monthly map is drawn 
for 23h on the 1st. By the end of 
the month it will apply to 21 h

Mars and the Moon) will apply 
to 19h. By then the docks will 
have changed and it will be

Sir Reg Goodwin, Labour 
leader of the Greater. London 
Council from 1973 to 1977. 
died yesterday at the age of 78. 

A quiet, unspectacular man, 
he lacked ibe lough. Tamma- 
ny-siyle worldli ness of a Her- 
bert Morrison no less than the 
insidious charm of a Ken 
Livingstone. Yet he did a 
worthy job in his day, and was 
admired for his competence 
and integrity by many of the 
council's officials. 

Politically he was a moder- 
ate. but towards the end of his 
career at County Hall modera- 
tion was going out of fashion. 
Eventually he left the Labour 
Party though without giving 
his allegiance to any other. 

He will be remembered fora 
number of specific achieve- 
ments. not least the introduc- 
tion of free off-peak travel for 
pensioners. His work for boys’ 
dubs also was enduring, and 
apart from the war. he served 
the National Assodarion of 
Boys' Cubs for almost forty 
years. 

Reginald Eustace Goodwin 
was bom in S treat ham, on 
July 3. 1908. and educated at 
Strand School, London. From 
1926 to 1934 he was a tea 
buyer in the City. He was also 
for five years voluntary leader 
of the Oxford and Bermond- 
sey Boys' Club, becoming first 
assistant secretary of the 
NABC in 1934. He was its 
general secretary from 1945 to 
1973. 

In 1932 be had joined 
Bermondsey Labour Party, 
and in 1937 was elected to 
Bermondsey Borough Coun- 
cil. on which he served until 
1 965. for 1 8 years as its leader. 
In 1946 he was also elected to 
the LCC and was soon identi- 
fied by Sir Isaac Hayward as 
one of his young standard- 
bearers. After 1964 he had a 
seat on the successor GLG 



But he only really came into 
his own in local government 
with the second GLC election 
of 1967. The Labour Party was 
routed and a Labour rump 
met to choose a new leader. 
The guile and adroitness of 
Hayward as LCC Labour lead- 
er in the first session of the 
GLC had left Goodwin in the 
anonymity of the finance 
Committee where he seemed 
happy. A shattered group, 
almost all with an LCC back- 
ground. began to experience 
for the first lime since 1933 
the problems of an opposition. 

In 1970 when Labour made 
up lost ground by recapturing 
ILEA, he moved reluctantly 
into a more aggressive pose. 
Knighted on the recommen- 
dation of Harokl Wilson after 
the 1967 GLC defeat, he 
settled for being called Sir 

Ri 

After Labour's 1973 victory 
at the GLC he led a large 
majority which showed the 
tensions already manifest in 
the Labour Party nationally. 
He put his name to a pro-Reg 
Prentice petition and encour- 
aged several members who 
later went off to form the SDP. 

The signs of increasing left- 


wing influence in London 
distressed him. His favourite 
optative after returning from 
the interminable meetings of 
the London Labour Party's 
executive was "Bless us and 
save us". His closest associate 
was ihc London Labour chair- 
man. Robert Melhsh. whose 
Bermondsey parliamentary 
constituency was his on the 
GLC. but whose political style 
he did not share. . * 

Another Labour defeat in 
1977 saw him again elected as 
Labour leader, but even stron- 
ger blasts were blowing from 
the Left. He pinned his feith 
on getting a moderate to 
replace him to hold the dyke, 

Ken Livingstone, however, 
sal behind him. delivering on 
occasion root and branch 
attacks on the structure of the 
GLC. Goodwin never replied, 
only quivered. Few ever at- 
tacked him directly, for he 

always looked vulnerable. His 
unexpected resignation as 
leader in 1980 was concealed 
from all his colleagues include 
ing the Chief Whip. 

His successor. Andrew (now 
Lord) McIntosh, was ousted a 
vear later by Ken Livingstone 
in a coup following (he next 
Labour victory in 1981. Good- 
win failed to secure nomina- 
tion for that election even in 
Bermondsey. It was a strange 
end to his career in London 
government. 

In a rare flash of wit when 
he took his place on the back 
benches of the GLC. he said 
Tm glad to be here because 
fewer of my friends are behind 
me." His disenchantment 
with the new Labour Left 3 
finally expressed itself in his 
letting his membership lapse 
in 1982. 

He married, in 1942. Penel- 
ope Mary Thornton. She sur- 
vives him with two sons and 
one daughter.

MR J. LESLIE ORR 


Mr J. Leslie Oit, a pioneer 
of professional management 
consultancy in Britain, died at 
Eastbourne on September 20. 
He was 94. 

John Leslie Oit was bom on 
May 26. 1892, at Airdrie, 
Scotland. He was educated at 
Morrison's Academy, Crieff 
Glasgow High .School and 
Glasgow University where he 
graduated in mechanical engi- 
neering in 1911 

At the outbreak of the First 
World War he was commis- 
sioned into the Highland 
Light Infantry. By the end of 
the war he was a major in the 
Royal Artillery. But be was 
invalided home after being 
gassed and spent several 
months recuperating. 

He then joined a small 
engineering firm, but the ef- 
fects of the gassing caught up 
with him in prolonged boots 
of pneumonia, and be was 
advised to go to warmer 
dimes. As a freelance produc- 
tion engineer he went to South 
Africa, and then to New 
Zealand and Australia. Re- 
stored to health, he returned 
in 1926. 

Now widely experienced, he 
was hired as a management 
consultant by the -British 
Bedaux Company. Here he 
found his niche and made 
important contributions to the 
company's pioneering assign- 
ments in production engineer- 
ing and manufacturing 
management. Within two 
years he was assistant general 
manager. 

In the mid- 1 930s, British 
Bedaux began to lose then; 
early recruits who moved into 
fresher pastures as principals 
in new practices. Onr himself 
joined Lyndall Urwick to 


form Urwick Orr and Part- 
ners, the first British profes- 
sional management 
consultant practice, providing 
sendees not only in produc- 
tion but also in wider fields, 
particularly marketing, office 
administration and manage- 
ment accounting. 

During the war years, with 
Urwick away on National 
Service to the Treasury and to 
the War Office, Orr operated 
as sole chief executive respon- 
sible for all the partnership's 
services to wartime industry. 

He involved himself in 
many brandies of engineering, 
but especially in aircraft pro- 
duction. supervising the entire 
production process from fac- 
tory layout, quality control 
and workforce relations. His 
strength was his abundant 
common sense which, com- 
bined with an analytical mind, 
he successfully applied to new 
situations. 

That Orr was less known in 
person stemmed only from 
attitude and choice. A quiet 
and private man, he eschewed 
the spotlight arid never ap- 
peared as a speaker on any 
public platform. He continued 
fully active in body and mind 
until his retirement in 1962. 

Id his youth he was a 
dedicated chess player and 
found relaxation in listening 
to classical music, preferably 
on the wireless. He steadfastly 
refused to play golf maintain- 
ing that he had seen too many 
colleagues mesmerised by the 
game. 

After the death of his wife. 
Gladys Marie, in the 1960s, he 
continued living quietly alone 
in Eastbourne, largely fending 
forhimseJf He is survived by 
their only son.

MRS DOROTHY 
RICHARDS 

Mrs Dorothy Richards, who 
died in Cambridge on Septem- 
ber 24 at the age of 92. had, as 
Dorothy Pillcy. made a name 
in journalism and climbing 
well before she married I. A. 
Richards in 1926. 

Theirs was a close and 
happy partnership in Cam-

and above all in the moun-

(1935). she chronicles the 
great years when they made 
many first ascents in the Alps, 
notably the North Ridge of the 
Dent Blanche. 

Though the Richardses had 
later to reduce the scale of 
their climbing, their enthusi- 
asm for the mountains and for 
meetings with fellow climbers 
never weakened. After her 
husband's death in 1979. she 
lived on in the charming 
house next to Magdalene to 
wtuch they had retired ia 
1974.

Laser scanner spreads the Word 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


Facsimile reproductions of tfcos-

for the Vatican Library ia Rome. 

They include copies of thou- 
sand-year-old documents and

which produces the films for

Galleries: new exhibitions out of town 

A chance to revalue 
forgotten talents 


Byam Shaw/ 

John Farleigh

Museum, Oxfo rd

Bohun Gallery, 
Henley-on-Thames 

Enterprise in art exhibitions is 
not necessarily these days the 
prerogative of the London 
galleries — if indeed, it ever 
was. And this is particularly 
true when it comes to 
rediscovery and revaluation: 
you are just as likely to find a 
halt-remembered name re- 
defined in Canterbury, or 

Oxford, or Henley-on-Thames 

as you are in the middle of ihe 
West End. At present there is 
an interesting selection of 
look -again shows not too far 
from London, and. while it 
would be too bold to say that 
any one of them is worth half a 
day of anyone's time, certainly 
if you think, just seeing the 
name, that you might be 
interested, then none of them 
is likely to disappoint you. 

The centrepiece of the 
Canterbury Festival, on the 
art side, is a show devoted to 
that (except in antiquarian 
bookshops) half-forgotten figr 
ure Laden Pissarro, and 
particularly his influence on 
English art. This chimes very- 
well with the iheme of the 
festival as a whole, which is 
this year the interrelation 
between French and British 
cultures: other exhibitions, on 
for the duration of the festival 


art resident in England. But in 
most ways the connections 
between the two countries are 
most dramatically illustrated 
by the Pissarro show. 

If wc say that Luden Pis- 
sarro is only half-forgotten, 
that is because the half that is 
'generally remembered is the 
avid correspondent with his 
father Camille. But unless one 
is interested in lurn-of-the- 
century private-press books in 
Britain il is highly unlikdy 
that the name calls up any 
very concrete visual image. In 
this' show the book-work, with 
its exquisite colour woodcuts,

best even Lucien’s early 
paintings, before he had what 
was obviously a quite debil-

all that remarkable: there is a 
surprising touch of almost 
primitive awkwardness about 
them. But. as soon as he is 
laced with the technical dis- 
dplincs of some graphic pro- 


wood-engravings of John 
Farleigh). There does not 
seem to have been a proper 
exhibition devoied- to Byam 
Shaw since his death in 1919. 
when he was only 46. He too is 
more than hal /-forgotten: in 
his case the phantom lingers 
on because the school he co- 
founded still bears his name 
and is still going strong. Any . 
further impression probably 
comes from his book-illustra- 
tions, mostly to Romantic 
poetry and in a crisp and 
ebullient style which is not so 
readily distinguished, at a 
glance, from that of near- 
contemporaries like Edmund 
J. Sullivan. Garth Jones and 
Henry Qspovat. Bui was he 
actually more distinctive than 
the illustrations might lead us 
to believe? 

The show at the Ashmolean 
is at once highly enjoyable and 
deeply puzzling. Anyone com-

together, he takes artistic de- displayed were by the same

cisions (and generally the right 
ones) and creates his own 
delicate, pastoral world with 
extraordinary sureness of 
effect. 

We can see. too. that the 
influences go both ways: in the 
engravings especially, he is 
clearly and fruitfully in- 
fluenced by the Pre-Rapha- 
elites. and by his new English 
friends Shannon and “Riqu- 
etie". as well as spreading the 
word, from a parental horse's 
mouth, about what French 
Impressionism really meant, 
for the benefit of a number of 
English painters who fondly 
thought they were Impression- 
ists but in Lucien's opinion 
had somehow got Impression- 
ism all mixed up with Re- 
alism. The later paintings are a 
bit of a let-down, though they 
have their moments — a view 
of the railway in south Lon- 
don. for instance, happily 
recalls his father's essays in the 
same genre. But it is fascinat- 


anisu and if so what their 
correct chronological order 
must be. In Silent Noon (an 
illustration, of course, of Ros- 
setti) in 1893 we see Shaw 
edging over towards Im- 
pressionism. yet in 1900. with 
The Boer War (a sad-looking 
lady standing by a slow- 
moving stream), the profusion 
of greenery is rendered with 
immaculate, slightly hallu- 
cinatory precision such as can 
hardly have been seen in

of Pre-Raphaelitism itself.

quite persuaded to stand up

That, needless to say, - is 


though it is intriguing to see 
his measured progression in 
his engravings from conser- 
vatism to modernity, without 
ever seeming to change direc- 
tion radically or be any less 
himself. 

John Bnckland Wright, 
now. a collection of whose 
paintings, drawings and prints 
is to be seen at the Bohun 
Gallery, Henley-on-Thames, 
until October 9. is a more 
arguable case. He and Farfeigh 
were close contemporaries, 
and both are best known for 
their prints, especially their 
book-illustrations. But. oddly, 
Buckland Wright developed 
in the opposite direction: his 


earlier works, such as the 
woodcut illustrations for the 
Halcyon Press Keats Sonnets 
(1927) and Poe stories, are 
much more modem-looking, 
with their distinct bows to 
Cubism and the French Deco 
designers, than his later and 
better-known work for the 
Golden Cockerel Press. 

This may have been partly 
the medium (usually etching 
or copper-engraving) and 
partly the subject-matter, for 
he tended to get assigned 
discreetly and quite classily 


London Life but did not quite 
dare. However, when not 
involved with the naughty- 
bm-nice, he still remained a 
formidable designer, os one 
can see from the later wood- 
engravings for Matthew Flin- 
ders’s Narrative (1946). AH of 
rhis we can observe for our- 
selves from the Bohun Gallery 
show, and in addition get a 
rare chance to see some of his 
few oil paintings and drawings 
not related io the engraved 
work.

work in that form just faintly 
sniggery and under-plain-

for the libraries of those who 
would have liked to take 


to elevate or depress the 
reputation. But. whichever 
way the judgement goes, in the 
arts any notice is finally better 
than no notice at all.

petition. The anticlimax came 
when, after 16 days of heals 
and semifinals, involving 42 
young artists, no first prize 
was awarded. 

The jury was an unusually 
well-balanced team of critics. 

- artists and professors, includ- 

* ing Joan ChisseJL ZoluSn 
Kocsis. Gyorgy Kroo and 
Harold Schonberg. The be- 
wilderment and fnistralion at 
their decision was almost 
tangible on that last night jn 
the Liszt Academy. For in 
Karoly Mocsari. who was 
placed second, the com- 
petition had that rare creature: 
a pianist whose daring and 
originality equalled his musi- 
cal intelligence and technical 
virtuosity. 

A loiLslc-haired 23-year-old 
wild boy from north-east 
Hungary, Mocsari shuffles on 
to the platform as if playing 
were, the last thing on his 

♦ mind. There were entre- 
preneurial murmurs about the 
need to send him to a finishing 
school: but it was precisely the 
unfinished and the unpreaici- 
able in his playing which 
marked him out from his 
fellow competitors. His Liszt 
B minor Sonata (the com- 
pulsory piece for the semi- 
finals) came at the end of a day 
of six. and vci actually made 
me want to hear still more. 
The opening notes compelled 
near-mesmeric attention m 

^rihe audience: and the work's 
‘huge span held within il a 
plethora -of shades and. sha- 
pings. 

The competitors, partnered 
in the finale by the Budapest 
Philharmonic conducted by 
Andras Ligeti, had the choice 
of Liszt's First or Second 


Despite a jury decision 
which, in its impenetrable 
secrecy and ostensible ped- 
antry. does little for the 
reputation of piano com- 
petitions, Mocsfiri carried 
away some £2.500 in prize 
money, the winner’s promised 
engagements with Hungarian 
television and radio, and an 
envelope full of invitations 
from international festivals. 
He won the Terence Judd 
award in Britain two years 
ago, and must be persuaded to 
return very soon. 

It was encouraging, at least, 
that in a competition of 
unusually high standards and 
stimulating- artistry Mocs&n 
was placed marginally higher 
than either Dimitri Racer or 
Vladimir Sakin from the 
Soviet Union. Both nearly 10 
years older than Mocsfiri, and 
approaching the age limit of 

35. these were pianists of 

considerable maturiiy_ and 
authority, but never quite the 
insight or esprit of Mocsfin. 

Racer, who was placed 
third, treated the Liszt Sonata, 
utterly convincingly- as melo- 
drama: he is a pianist of big, 
brooding gestures, working 
the piano at limes _ hke a 
mighty organ, and with both 
the stamina and sense of 
fantasy to realize his aims. 
Sakin. whose cavemously Ro- 
mantic Schubert transcrip- 
tions 1 particularly enjoyed in 
the Gala Concert, was tech- 
niallv one of the most i merest- j 
ing competitors. With hugely 1 
strong hands, capable of driv- 
ing momentum or dissolving 
into the most liquid of piams- 
simos. he made both his 
Sonata and Second Concerto 
more physically than inter- 
prciaiivdy exciting. 


Opera 

The Capture of Troy 
Grand, Leeds 

Nothing could emphasize the integ- 
rity of Berlioz's epic more strongly 
than a performance that stops part- 
way through: when the curtain falls 
after the Trojan women’s blood- 
letting in this vivid new production, 
one feels intensely that this has been 
the prologue, that the show must go 
on. But, reasonably enough. Opera 
North and their collaborators on this 
grand venture, the Welsh and Scot- 
tish companies, have felt that the 
work needed gradual assembly, and 
so for the moment audiences in 
Leeds. Nottingham. Manchester and 
Hull will be seeing just the first two 
acts of The Trojans, and must wait a 
while for the unfolding of the drama 
in Carthage. 

Bui the rest should be worth 
wailing for. Tim Albery’s production 
is almost devoid of decor, so that 
nothing should distract from the tidal 
movements of the chorus as they 
flood across the stage in joy, solem- 
nity or hysteria. One detects, perhaps, 
some beneficial influence from Peter 
Stein's Otello production for Welsh 
National Opera; in any event, the 
chorus are similarly handled as a 
vigorous crowd of individuals. They 
also make a tremendous noise, full- 
throated and immediate. The Trojans 
is revealed as very much a choral 
opera, befitting its name. 

The directness of the production is 



j 


Sympathy and restraint: Richard Salter, Kristine CiesinsJd 


helped too by the historically un- 
specific costuming. There is some 
flowing classical drapery: there are 
also Grecian helmets and breast- 
plates. But heroic-age skirts are 
happily avoided in favour of trousers, 
and the clothes for the chorus, all 
black, make them look rather like 
contemporary earthquake victims, as 
anyone might after a 10-year siege. 
Indeed the only major fault in the 
production is that it gives such a poor 


evocation of the wooden horse: 
something cou/d surely be done to 
suggest ihe entry of the thing behind 
the shell-blasted panels that are a 
notable feature of the set. 

Other slightly wooden aspects of 
the production will no doubt settle 
down during the run. In the perfor- 
mance I saw there was an unfortunate 
deliberateness io some of the coups de 
theatre, the discovery of Cassandra 
beneath a heap of scarlet cloth, the 


potentially striking entry of Andro- 
mache in white, or the formation of a 
tableau between Hecuba and Andro- 
mache leaning over Andromache's 
son. Other figures, though, are al- 
ready exactly right notably the 
presentation of Priam as a lama, but 
in purple, not saffron, and the solid 
blue-suited appearanace of Choro- 
ebus. 

The cast is led by Kristine Ciesinksi 
as a Cassandra who could afford to be 
more violent, more impulsive. As it 
was her vocal attributes sounded 
under-used: there was a degree of 
caution and care to the performance, 
though the demonic sacrificial victim 
of the last scene had' her skimming 
out from her whiteness of tone. 
Richard Salter is a sympathetic 
Choroebus, and the American tenor 
Ronald Hamilton shows something 
of a Vickers-like suffering rasp as 
Aeneas. Clive Bayley makes a power- 
ful moment of the appearance of 
Hector's ghost, and the restoration of 
the Sinon episode, never heard 
before, provides the opportunity fora 
skilful cameo performance from 
David Hillman. , 

This episode usefully introduces 
the motif of the wooden horse, and i 
was presumably cut by Berlioz only 1 
for reasons of length. It has been i 
orchestrated for the occasion by Hugh i 
Macdonald, who is also responsible 1 
for the admirable translation. David I 
Lloyd-Jones conducts an orchestral I 
performance which could have more 
nerve and knife. '

LPO/Tennstedt 

Festival Hall 


Having lately began his 
gramophone recording of the 
Beethoven symphonies with 
the London Philharmonic Or- 
chestra. Klaus Tennsiedi per- 
haps anticipated one future 
issue with his conducting of 
the “Eroica" Symphony on 
Sunday afternoon. It was an 
imposing performance, invi- 
gorating as well as resplen- 
dent. which left nobody in any 
doubt of the music’s pas- 
sionate feeling as it changed 
from movement to move- 
ment. without becoming 
merely indulgent 

Whether Mr Tcnnstedt has 
yet convinced himself about 
his intentions I am not so Sure. 
Last lime I heard him conduct 
the work he made much of six 
horns strung out in a row. as 
well as triple woodwind. This 
lime the horns were, again 
doubled to six. but the wood- 
wind was confined to the 
usual pairs. The trumpets, 
however, acquired an extra 
pair simply to reinforce a 
couple of phrases in^ the 
Funeral March movement. 

!i seemed a curious extrava- 


nale. and not particularly 
justified when the resulting 
balance gave the horns an 
almost Mahlerian prom- 
inence. These were properly 
scaled back to three in the trio 
of the scherzo movement 
which formed a cheerful inter- 
lude between tragic intensity 
and a finale mat almost 
generated its own momentum. 

The playing had a vivacity 
of spirit and ensemble charac- 
ter that gave consistent plea- 
sure. more so titan in support 
of Peter Donohoe for the B flat 
Piano Concerto. No 2. that 
began the programme. The 
orchestra kept to oddly nar- 
row dynamic limits in the 
alternation of loud and soft 
passages, over a rhythmic 
pulse that sometimes seemed 
unduly laboured. 

It was more rewarding to 
enjoy the keyboard writing 
under the pianist's supple 
fingers, less concered with any 
sense of personal improvisa- 
tion than with sensitive 
articulation of all three move- 
ments. The adagio movement 
was brought to a beautiful 
hushed ending, and. if the 
displaced accents in the finale 
were left as sober syncopation 
on this occasion, they thereby 
linked the concerto more

Illusions 
of power 

It is now a little over a year 
since Frank Delaney, self- 
appointed book-trade pundit, 
announced in the pages of The 
Listener that he was worried 
about the state of publishing. 
There were too many take- 
overs, the money-men were 
moving in. conglomerates 
were gobbling up the indepen- 
dent publishers, the old au- 
thor-publisher relationship 
was dying. Jackie Collins was 
top of the best-seller list. It was 
all very alarming. 

The article caused no more 
than mild amusement in the 
book world. Someone pointed 
out that one of the “take-over 
beasts" that Delaney had 
forgotten to mention was Cen- 
tury Hutchinson, a firm which 
had recently recruited outside 
editorial consultants. Among 
them was one Frank Delaney. 

Vet this week, as publishers 
set up their stalls at the annual 
works outing, the Frankfort 
Book Fair, the talk will be all 
of the regeneration of the 
independent publisher in the 
face of take-overs and merg- 
ers. As fast as old firms can 
join and form new alliances, 
exciting new firms, bristling 
with talent and promise, are 
springing up. 

The pattern is becoming 
familiar. Two months ago. a 
trio of former Robert Maxwell 
employees announced that 
they were setting up Headline, 
a new imprint, publishing 
hardbacks and paperbacks, 
that was going to break the 
stranglehold of the conglom- 
erates. Headline authors 
would have a say in the design 
of their jackets, receive regular 
sales print-outs and healthy 
advances. 

The theme or author-power 
has been taken one step 
further by the newest show in 
town, Bloomsbury Publishing 
Ltd. whose creation was an- 
nounced in a welter of 
exclusives and Press hand- 
outs a few day’s ago. They, like 
Headline, have an acceptable 
management mix of smooth 
marketing men and sympa- 
thetic editorial types, and their 
backing in the City is no less 
than £2m. Not only will they 
love and cherish aulbois but 
they will actually give them 
(or at least some of them) the 
opportunity to own a part of 
the firm's equity. 

Authors might be forgiven 
for thinking that at last the 
balance of power between 
publisher and the author was 
to be redressed in their favour. 
In addition to Headline and 
Bloomsbury', three new and 
reasonably independent pub- 
lishers are unveiling their lists 
at Frankfurt: Roger Houghton 
Ltd. backed by the venerable 
and somewhat dull J.M. Dent 
list, Mildmay Books, set up by 
two former Hutchinson em- 
ployees. and Boxtrce. a 
publishing offshoot of the 
TVS television company. Ad- 
vances have returned to the 
level of the heady days before 
publishing's much-publicized 
recession. 

Earlier this month, paper- 
back rights to a first novel. 
The Dragon Riders by Christie 
Dickason, went to Coronet for 
£101000. Another historical 
noveL Perdita’s War by the 
former publisher Daphne 
Wright, has sold to America 
for S93.500. Is is possible that 
for authors a new day is 
dawning? 

Hardly. Mark le Fanu. gen- 
eral secretary of the Society of 
Authors, who has greeted 
Bloomsbury with enthusiasm, 
is currently engaged in a 
significant tiff, much publi- 
cized at the weekend, with 
Frank Delaney's colleagues at 
Century Hutchinson over a 
Minimum Terms Agree mem 
proposed for all contracts. 
Fabers. Hamish Hamilton, 
BBC Publications and W.H. 
Allen have so far agreed to the 
terms. Century Hutchinson, 
under the leadership of the 
cool Anthony Chcetham and 
his even cooler wife, Rose- 
mary. have not. 

Century Hutchinson is a 
thoroughly contemporary es- 
tablishment. Its most success- 
ful books have been prettified 
editions of minor classics, 
such as Lark Rise to 
Candlcford, on which, since 
they are out of copyright, no 
royalty is payable. There is a 
certain irony here. Century 
were established some five 
years ago by a smooth yet 
sympathetic management 
team with the help of hefty 
backing from the City. The 
new list, it was announced, 
was going to be all about 
writers, treated and published 
as they deserved to be. 

Author-power may still be 
some way off.

Mr Hatton's last stand was 
both dramatic and farcical He

they refused to go to the

they were not being allowed

Mr Hatton led his col-

to see the British labour

Mr Kinnock was contemp-

By Rodney Cowtoa 
Transport Correspondent 

A Dew £86 million bridge is 
to be bmlt across the River 
Thames in London to relieve 
congestion in the Dartford 
tanneb created by extra traffic 
from the M25 motorway. 

It is expected to come into 
use in 1990 and will carry all 
son Abound traffic while 
northbound traffic will be 
channelled through the exist- 
ing tunnels. The project wBl 
seed parliamentary approraL 
Announcing that the con- 
tract was being awarded to the 
Trafalgar House group, the 
Transport Secretary, Mr John 
Moore, said the proposal for a 
four-lane bridge was the best 
and cheapest solution 
"Trafalgar House had also 
offered a tunnel crossing as an 
alte r native solution, as had 
two competing firms, Balfour 
Beatty and John Mortem. 

The project is expected to 
create aboat 5£00 man-years 
of work, half of it steelwork in 
the north-east where un- 
employment levels are particu- 
larly high. 

The bridge, about 50 yards 
nd of tite temads, 

will have a main span of 500 
yards, the hugest of its type in 
the United Kingdom, an over- 
all length of 3,000 yards, and 
provide about 60 yards of 
clearance for shipping. 



Mr Moore said the con- 
struction of the bridge would 
double present capacity and 
together with tine tminels 
would be able to handle pro- 
jected traffic growth up to the 
year 2015. 

As with the Channel tunnel, 
the bridge will be financed by 
private capitaL Trafalgar 
House will operate it and 
retain tolls for not more than 
20 years, or mitfl outstanding 
debts on the tmaeh and the 
costs of the new bridge and of 
operating the whole crossing 
are deared. 

The crossing would then 
revert to the nation. 

Mr Moore said tolls would 
be kept at present levels in real 
terms. 

Trafalgar Hosse are buying 
the tinsels at a cost believed to 
be aboat £50 millions and wiD 
be seeking to raise aboat £200

A £25 mHtion development 
at St Katharine’s Dock, East 
London, is to be Britain's bid 
for the proposed European 
Comm unity Trade Mark Of- 
fice, due to open in 1988 or 
1989. 

A “significant" financial 
package will be offered to 
support London’s bid, Mr 
Geoffrey Pattie, Minister for 
Industry and Information 
Technology, said yesterday 
when he announced the choice. 

Britain is thought to have 
been among the last of the nine 
or 10 compering member 
states to decide its site and 
yesterday Mr Peter Drew, 
chairman of the developers, St 
Katharine by the Tower Ltd, a 
wholly-owned subsidiary of 
Taylor Woodrow .said that 
many of the financial arrange- 
ments had still to be 
completed. 

The building, with about 
8,700 sq metres of net usable 


floor space, will be close to the 
World Trade Centre, the new 
London Commodity Exchange 
and the St Katharine’s marina. 
It is part of a development of 
np to five storeys with a piazza, 
which the Government be- 
lieves fulfils the European 
Commission’s stipulation that 
it should be a striking 
landmark. 

The site is dose also to the 
proposed short take-off and 
landing strip for flights to 
Europe, due to open next year. 

Mr Fattie said that cost was 
the one drawback of the St 
Katharine's site but added that 
Britain's final proposal would 
differ little from the incentives 
being pot forward fay other 
bidders such as Munich, one 
of London's mam rivals. j 

AU the bids must reach the 
European Commission by to - 1 
day and the Council of Min- 1 
isters is expected to produce a i 
short 1st next year. 1

The Bank of England will 
1 try to ride out the storm which 
is hitting the pound and. 
threatening to produce a 
damaging and embarrassing 
rise in base rates. 

Mr Robin Leigh-Pember- 
ton, the Governor of the Bank 
of England, said yesterday: “I 
hope we might get through 
this, as we did in January”. 

The pound fell to new lows 
yesterday in the wake of the 
foilure of the leading indus- 
trial countries to agree on new 
measures to stabilize exchange 
rates. 

Interest rates in the London 
money markets rose to a level 
consistent with a base rate 
level of 1 1 per cent, compared 
with the present 10 percent. 

“We have to let the situa- 
tion settle down before we 
react, if we react at alt” Mr 
Leigh -Pemberton, who is 
attending the annual

New York (AP-Dow Jones) 
- The United States index of

increases in share prices 
and M2 are said to be behind 
the rise. 

In July, the index showed a

pared with June.

The Governor said the 
Bank of England bad been

support the- pound by selling 
dollars. * This wa& consistent 
with the line adopted by the 
EEC finance ministers at 
Glerreagles a week before the 
IMF meeting, be said, because 
the present situation was one 
of particular sterling weak- 
ness. 

The present situation is a 
difficult one for the Chan- 
cellor. Mr Nigel Lawson, with 
the Conservative Party con- 
ference next week and a rise in 
base rates looking like a dear 
failure of policy. 

Mr Lawson was keeping a 
low profile in Washington 
yesterday, having said on 
Sunday that there, is “an 
almost unhealthy preoccupa- 
tion. in the markets and the 


Press, with very short-term 
concerns". 

The danger is that delaying 
action on base rates carries the' 
risk of increasing the size of 
the increase that is necessary 
to restore order to the mar- 
kets. Already, some analysts 
in London are talking of the 
need for a two-point rise in 
base rales. 

The pound, which was weak 
before the IMF meeting, was 
the main casualty of the 
failure of the finance ministers 
of the leading countries to 
agree concrete measures to 
preserve the present pattern of 
exchange rates. 

The dollar fell sharply in the 
Far -East yesterday morning 
but it was supported by the 
German and Japanese central 
banks. There was no con- 
certed support for the pound, 
however, and so the Bank of 
England had to act alone. 


By Lawrence Lever 


Sir Kenneth Berrili, chair- 
man of. the Securities and 
Investments Board, yesterday 
welcomed the Government’s 
proposals to impose an in- 
dustry-wide compensation 
scheme to protect investors. 

He said that he was “de- 
lighted with these new pro- 
posals for what must be a 
crucial element of protection 
for the small investor." 

The “weakness” of 
compensation arrangements 
had been one of the most 
obvious gaps in the existing 
system of investor protection. 

The Government is today 
tabling several hundred 
amendments to the Financial 
Services Bill, one of which will 
require the setting up of a 
compensation scheme which 
all the self-regulating 
organizations will be obliged 
to join. 


The bill lays down a new 
system of investor protection, 
and will require all investment 
businesses to be authorized 
either by SIB or by joining a 
self-regulating organization. 

The Government had orig- 
inally intended to make SIB 
responsible for determining 
the best method of 
compensating investors who 
lose money through the failure 
or fraud of an authorized 
investment business. 

However, it has become 
obvious to SIB, which fa- 
voured a central compensa- 
tion scheme rather than a 
series of individual schemes 
set up by self-regulating , 
organizations, that a statutory 
requirement for a central 
scheme was necessary to force 
the organizations to agree to , 
one. 


A total of 3.15 million 
people will receive Trustee 
Savings Bank shares, by far 
the largest number recorded 
on a share issue, according to 
allocation details unveiled, 
yesterday. But because of the 
huge oversubscription, most 
applications have been 
sharply scaled down and half 
of those from non-priority 
applicants have been elimi- 
nated in a ballot. 

The largest allocation on 
priority applications is 1.000 
shares and 10,000 on non- 
priority applications. 

The issue is a substantial 
boost to private shareholding 
in Britain, more than equal- 
ling the estimated total num- 
ber of existing private 
shareholders. The Slock Ex- 
change recently put the num- 
ber of individuals holding 
shares at about 2.75 million. 

Mr John Higneit. a director 
of Lazarets, said that more 

than 1000.000 of those receiv- 
ing TSB shares were likely to 
be first time shareholders. 

Derails of the allocation 
released yesterday by Lazard 
Brothers, the merchant bank 
managing the flotation, 
showed that exactly half of the 
3.7 million public applications 
will receive no shares as a 
result of the ballot which was 
held Saturday. 

Most applications have 
been sealed down, although 
priority applicants — those 
assured of receiving shares — 
collect a higher proportion of 
the amount they asked for 
than non-priority applicants. 

The only people to receive 
their allocation in full were 
priority customers applying 
for 200 or 400 shares and 
employees wanting up to 
4.000. Public applications for 
the 400 share minimum will 
receive 300 shares. 

Lazards said that the offer 
was more than seven limes 
oversubscribed with £5.6 bil- 
lion put up by 1.3 million 
priority applicants and 3.7 
million public applicants. The 
applications added up to a 
total of 1 1.2 billion shares: 

There were 145 aplications 
for more than 3 million shares 
which will receive nothing 
since the cost of processing the 
applications would be more 
i than the profit they would 
have made on a small alloca- 
tion of shares. 

The cheques of unsuccessful 
applicants will be returned. 
Those from people lucky 
enough to be given shares 
have been cashed already and 
the difference will be returned 
when the allocation letters go 
out on October 9 — two days 
later than expected because of 
time taken to process so many 
cheques. 

Lizards advised applicants 
wanting to know quickly 
whether they had received 
shares to check their bank 
balances later this week. 

The TSB will receive £6.5 
million in interest from the 


Allocation of the shares will 
be ou the following basis: 
Customer Priority 
Applications 

1-3 million applications were 
received on customer priority 
application forms for approxi- 
mately 2300 million shores, 
and were allocated as follows:

shares were received on pnbljc

applications for np to 3 million

plicants as follows:

hundreds of millions of 
pounds of excess cash from 
oversubscription which goes 
on deposit for the next two 
weeks. That will cover about 
half the underwriting costs of 
the issue. 

Half of the shares in the£l .5 
billion issue were reserv ed for 
employees and priority cus- 
tomers. They were allowed to 
apply for up to 10.000 shares 
each, so there were more 
shares to go around and 
scaling down was less severe. 
The other half was shared 
between non-priority individ- 
uals and institutions with nc 
maximum application. 

In each share category 
shown in the table, exactly 
half the applicants were elimi- 
nated by baltoL 
In the meantime, more than 
5000 suspected multiple 
applications are being investi- 
gated. Lazards said. Those 
found to be genuine will be 
allotted their shares — if they 
are eligible.

Finance ministers of the 
industrialised nations gave a 
warning yesterday of a new 
debt crisis that could exceed 
that precipitated by Mexico in 
1982 unless measures are 
implemented quickly to re- 
store growth in developing 
countries. # - 

The Interim Committee of 
the International Monetary 
Fund predicted at the IMF's 
annual meeting that the plight 
of debtor nations would deteri- 
orate sharply this year, in a 
statement expressing concern 
over the uncertainties clouding 
the global economic outlook. 

It said: “The debt export 
ratio of the indebted countries, 
which fell in 1984, rose in 1985 
and seems likely to rise again 
in 1986 to a higher level than 
that prevailing at the outset of 
the debt crisis.” 

Ministers urged action ou 
the stalled debt strategy 
agr eed at last year's meetings 
in Seoul, South Korea, as 
negotiators worked in closed 
sessions to meet a midnight 
deadline on a new $6 billion 
(£4.1 billion) loan package for 
Mexico. 


Mexico's stormy debt nego- 
tiations with its commercial 
bank creditors are considered 
a key test of the so-called 
“Baker Debt Strategy” un- 
veiled by Mr James Baker, the 
US Treasury Secretory at the 
Seoul meetings. 

Officials, noting that there 
is much at stake in a success- 
ful resolution of the Mexico 
talks, said if an agreement 
cannot be reached the entire 
debt strategy put in place by 
Western nations could coL- 
lapse- 

Mt Paul Vokker, The Fed- 
eral Reserve Board chairman, 
said: “I hope the deadline is 
going to be met If not, we have 
big problems.” 

The Mexico talks entered a 
critical phase as speculation 
grew among IMF officials that 
M Jacques de Larosiere, the 
managing director, , would an- 
nounce during the meetings a 
new $200 million to $300 
million bridging loan for Ni- 
geria, often referred to as 
-Britain's Mexico” because of 
the forge exposure of British 
banks. 


Nigeria and the IMF have 
been at odds over exchange 
rate policies for the past few 
years, but the two have agreed 
on a letter of intent that will 
allow the African nation to 
draw on 650 million Special 
Drawing Rights (£390 million) 
to enact its economic stabiliza- 
tion programme. 

The agreement was reached 
only after Nigeria successfully 
devalued the Naira. 

The committee criticized the 
United States for slowness in 
reducing Its huge fiscal and 
trade deficits. It said: “The 
reduction in the Federal fiscal 
deficit songht by US authori- 
ties has to be translated into 
fact” 

At the same time, the 
committee said growth in other 
countries, particularly the sur- 
plus nations, mnst be main- 
tained at an adequate pace to 
pull the developing world 
through the present slow- 
down. Even so, the rate of 
growth in developing coun- 
tries, which fell last year, is 
expected to drop again this 
year.

Private 


money 
to cross 


Thames 


By Teresa Poole 
Business Correspondent 


The new crossing of the 
Thames ai DartfortL an- 
nounced yesterday .is the first 
example in Britain of an 
important infrastructure 
scheme to be financed by the 
private sector. 

Under the concession, a 
consortium led by Trafalgar 
House will finance the 
construction of a four-lane 
bridge and take a lease on the 


existing tunnel crossings. It 
to all the 


will have the right 
toll charges until the costs of 
the project have been recov- 
ered, when it will hand back 
the assets at no cost to the 
Government of the day. 

From the Government’s 
point of view, money, that 
would have been tied up in the 
bridge can be used instead for 
road building, while the risks 
— and time-consuming finan- 
cial and contractural negotia- 
tions — of the traditional 
arrangements are avoided. 

The total cost of the project 
will be about £200 million 
which includes £S6 million of 
construction costs, the related 
financing costs, and some £50 
million to pay off the debts on 
the existing Danford Tunnel. 

Last week, while attention 
was focused on the Channel 
tunnel private share placing. 
Cascnovc. the stockbrokers, 
was arranging a £70 million 
loan stock placing for the 
Danford scheme. The rest of 
the money, mostly in the form 
of shon-ierm loans, will be 
provided bva bank facility led 
by Bank of America. 

Lord Rockley. at Kleinwort 
Benson, financial advisers to 
Trafalgar House, said: “This 
has passed the risk involved 
into the private sector. It is the 
first time any project has been 
handled in this way by 
Government.” 

He added that other 
projects such as the proposed 
second Severn Bridge, the 
barrage across the Severn, and 
even power stations could be 
financed in a similar manner. 

The maximum concession 
period is 20 years but the 
consortium expects, on cur- 
rent traffic forecasts, to have 
recouped the investment 
within 14 years. 


Boom in franchise 


businesses brings 
higher failure rate 


By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 


Businesses created by 
franchising have in a year 
increased in number by more 
than a half to nearly 20.000 
while sales overall have 
jumped more than a quarter to 
more than £12 billion. It has 
raised the total number of jobs 
created in this sector by more 
than a third to 148.000. 

The striking rale of growth, 
disclosed in a new survey 4 out 
yesterday, brought a warning 
from the British Franchise 
Association (BFA) whose 
director, Mr Tony DutfiekL 
said: “I am keen to sound a 
note of caution. Careful con- 
trolled growth must not give 
way to franchise euphoria.” 

The warning came as the 
survey showed a worsening in 
the failure rate among franchi- 
sors, the master businesses 
which expand by licensing 
their formats to franchisees. 
This past year about 14 per 
cent of franchisors have gone 
out of business, compared 
with 12 per cent traced in a 
1985 survey. New and untried 
franchises were most at risk. 

Mr Dutfield added: “There 
is no easy path to success 
through franchising, either for 
franchisors eager to expand 
too quickly or for franchisees 
unsuited to the way of life or 
too impatient to research their 
investment.” 

Franchising is for those 
prepared to live by the work 
ethic as seen in the United 



Tony Dutfield: “No easy 
path to success”. 

States, according to Mr Peter 
Stem, franchise manager at 
National Westminster Bank 
which sponsored the survey 
for the BFA. 

Mr Stern said: “Franchising 
remains one of the success 
stories of the Eighties, but 
optimism has to be tempered 
with realism at all levels.” 
Franchising evolved as pan of 
the American dream that any- 
body could become successful 
through hard work and those 
without that real desire and 
motivation should look for 
their future elsewhere, he said. 

He said the new franchisee 
had to beware of over-op- 
timism and needed to learn 
the basic skills of selling and 
time management. Better and 
longer-term sales training than 
at present offered by some 
franchisors would be 
beneficial. 

The 1 986 survey is the third 
into British franchising car- 


ried out by Power Research 
Associates, market researchers 
and industrial surveys special- 
ists. and each year the sector’s 
performance has exceeded 
expectations, the BFA said . 

With annual sales up 26 per 
cent in the past year, the 
industry is now on course for 
notching up £ 5 billion a year 
in sales by 1 990 but the greater 
rate of growth being seen has 
led to expectations that turn- 
over is likely to go to £6.1 
billion during 1991. Already 
franchising accounts for 2 per 
cent of all retail sales. 


In the year under review, 
there were 56 per cent more 
franchised businesses created 
while the number of franchi- 
sors rose 40 per cent to 440. 

The number of jobs in 
franchising in the year has 
risen 35 per cent with women 
outnumbering men by six to 
four. This is partly because of 
the number of part-time jobs 
created but also because there 
are so many service businesses 
such as restaurants and shops. 

The biggest growth areas in 
franchising are convenience 
retailing, business-to-business 
services and mobile food and 
drink operations. Fast-food 
retailing, now mature in 
franchising terms, is relatively 
one of the slower growing 
sectors.

Extracts from the statement by the 
Chairman, Mr. L. C. T. Cottrell 


The completion and letting of developments during the 
year, taken together with increases in existing rentals 
has resulted in an increase in net income of some 10% 
to give a total net rental income of £5,205.000. 


Construction and letting of the Company's develop- 
ments continued apace including the business park at 
Crawley where three of the four units of the second 
phase arc already let. at the retail developments in 
Mitcham and the Camberwell Shopping Centre where 
trading has commenced, while a number of other devel- 
opments have been completed or are in hand. The 
Company continues to seek attractive development 
opportunities while, in parallel, a policy of selective 
disposals is being pursued. 


In April 1986 the Company issued £11,500.000 10% 
first mortgage debenture stock 201 1. the proceeds being 
used to finance the acquisition of superior leasehold 
interests of existing investments. 


During the year under review a privately owned prop- 
erly company was acquired having assets consisting of a 
small portfolio of properties in London together with 
cash and marketable securities, the purchase consider- 
ation being principally satisfied by the issue of 997.500 
ordinary snares. 


On 30th April 1 986 the overall portfolio was valued at 
£76.036.000 giving a net asset value of 197.9p per share 
compared with last year's figure of I9i.7p.

Prospects improve for 
agreement on rubber 

_ tW arcord MI 


Rubber may have earned a 
new lease of popularity Grom 
the puppets in Spitting Im- 
age, but It occupies a low 
profile among the London 
commodities community. 

London was once the centre 
of nearly the world's trade in 
robber, hot the advent of 
domestic ownership for the 
major Malaysian plantations 
has seen the focus of business 
move inexorably to the 
Orient 

The London rubber futures 
market which never attracted 
much in the way of support 
from the tyre manufacturers, 
the main consumers, died a 
quiet death last year, to be 
replaced by an equally torpid 
contract 'in robber index 

futures. 

Nevertheless, there are 
around eight dealers in Lon- 
don who keep themselves 
busy handling the physical 
needs of European consumers 
by getting up early to catch 
the market* jg Singapore and 
Malaysia. 

Their attentions next week 
will be focused on Geneva, 
where the major consumers 
and producers of rubber will 

out^ttw^nteroalional Natu- 
ral Robber Agreement (Inca). 

The members of the Inter- 
national Natural Rubber 
Organisation (Inro) cannot be 
accused of one thing — giving 
np easily. The coming 12-day 
session will be then third 
attempt at achieving an 
agreement However, it wfll 
probably be their last 

The present agreement 
runs out next September, and 
member delegates need the 
best part of 12 mouths to get 
any pact ratified at home. 

The last round of folks 
broke down in May with 


consumers and producers un- 
able to agree on a reference 
price for the new pact The 
reference price — now 20 In 
Malaysian cents a kilo - 
marks the limits at which the 

lnro buffer stock manager can 
buy or sell robber to keep the 
commodity within an 81 cent 
price band. 

The producers, led by 
Malay sia, wanted a hefty 
increase of some 30 per cent 
to compensate for rising 
production costs since the last 
agreement was drawn up in 
1979. The big consumers, 
particularly the US, the 
Soviet l/nron and Japan, said 
that they could brook no 
increase and pointed to the 
pile of some 375,000 tonnes of 
rubber already in the bands of 
the buffer stock manager. 

The impasse is a familiar 
one in commodity agree- 
ments, and in the context of 
the modern world .economic 
order it is the importing 
countries which mid the 
stronger band. However the 
chances of achieving a new 
Inra have improved consid- 
erably since May. 

In that time, a cocoa pact 
has been agreed where the 
experts had confidently pre- 
dicted accord could not be 
reached. After the meaning- 
lessness of the latest sugar 
agreement and the calamity 
in tin, the cocoa talks brought 
a fresh breath of air to 
commodity agreements. 

More importantly, the con- 
ference chairman, Mr 
Manas pas Xu to, of Tha ila n d , 
has engaged in a round of 
shuttle diplomacy which ap- 
pears to have persuaded the 
producers to accept an no- 
changed reference price in the 
new Inra. 

Mr Xnto is said to be 


confident that accord can be 
struck on this matter fairly 
early in the talks. However, 
the producers are still 
thought to be unhappy about 
maintaining the automatic 
mechanism which triggers 
changes in the reference price 
daring the life of an agree- 
ment, arguing that it fails to 
take account of rising produc- 
tion costs. 

‘ The consuming countries, 
especially those for which 
commodity pacts are anath- 
ema. are strongly attached to 
the trigger adding, as it does, 
a degree of market sensitivity 
to the agreement. 

When and if Mr Xnto can 
clinch harmony on the new 
price range and trigger 
mechanisms, the conference 
will move on to more detailed 
matters under the agreement 

These include marketing 
and transport as well as the 
question of pricing solely in 
Malaysian ringgits now that 
its value has strayed from 
that of the Singapore dollar. 

One factor which may fa- 
roar the chances of reaching 
an agreement is the buoyant 
state of the robber market 
After a traditionally slack 
summer prices have risen by 
about 10 per cent this month, 
and recently the five-day 
moving average of rates in the 
Far East London and New 
York rose above 200 Malay- 
sian cents for the first time 
since June, 1984. 

London traders say that the 
market has been supported by 
a modest recovery in demand 
from importing countries, 
particularly Japan and the 
Soviet Union, along with poor 
weather in the Far East 
especially in Malaysia, which 
is by far the biggest supplier.

Fears or a possible two- 
poinl increase in bank base 
rates to 12 per cent set the 
alarm bells ringing in the City 
yesterday. 

The rate for three-month 
money in the money market 
soared by almost half of a 
percentage point to 1 125 per 
cent, taking it a full I_25 
percentage points above the 
present 10 per cent base rate. 

In the gill-edged market, the 
prospect of gloomy official 
reserve figures on Thursday, 
coupled with the expectation 
of bad money supply and 
inflation figures during the 
ensuing couple of weeks, 
tipped prices steadily lower. ' 

Both long and short-dated 

• Memcom, the USM- 
quoted electronic systems 
manufacturer, could be 
worth watching. In the past 
week its shares hare 
climbed by 50-per cent to l8p. 
The reason is the launch of 
a rerolntiooaiy camera and a 
S4 million (£2.8 million) 
contract from the Pentagon 
for a document-retrieval 
system. 

stocks lost up to £1 7b as gilts 
dealers complained: “There 
isn't a single bit of good news 
on the horizon." 

Early attempts at a rally 
were killed off mid-morning 
when the Bank of England 
indicated that it was not 
planning to raise its interven- 
tion rate in the money 
markets. 

Mr Mark Giffe, the chief 
economist at Capel-Cure My- 
ers. the broker, said: “People 
are waiting with baited breath 
for a base-rate rise. It's only a 
matter of time." 

Rival economist, Mr Ste- 
phen Lewis at Phillips & 
Drew, the broker, believes 
interest rates will rise by two 


percentage points later this 
week. 

Sterling had another bad 
day on the foreign exchange 
markets, falling to a fresh low 
against the weighted basket of 
European currencies at 68.2. It 
lost about 3 pfennigs against 
the mark, closing at 2.9050 
and almost a quarter of a cent 
against the dollar, which itself 
was weak, taking it down to 
$1.4340. 

The FT 30 Share index 
dosed lower once more, down 
by 25.8 points to 1212.6. in 
exceptionally thin trading. 
The broader-based FT-SE 100 
index also closed at its lowest 
level of the day, down by 29.4 
at 1,5392. 

Blue chips were worst hit 
Hawker Sidd el ey tumbled 24p 
to 423p. IC1 22p to 1.060p, 
Glaxo 2 Op off at 915p. Allied 
Lyons was another 7p down at 
296p and British Telecom 6p 
worse at 180p. 

Banks were equally de- 
pressed with National West- 
minster losing 20p to 512p. 
Lloyds dropping the same 
amount to 409p. Midland 17p 
lower at 537p and Barclays 
13p down at 464p. 

In the “grey" market, Geve- 
land Securities, the licensed 
dealer, was quoting the 50p 
partly-paid TSB shares at a 
middle price of 90p —a couple 
of pence up on Friday’s close. 
“But we’re not doing much 
trade." said a dealer.

GRAND MET BID HOPES

Composite insurers also lost 
ground. Royal Insurance was 
30p lower at 762p, G uardian 
-Royal lOp down at 762p and 
Sun Alliance 20p worse at 
642p. 

Grand Metropolitan, the 
hotel, brewing and leisure 
group, was the only member 
of the FT 30 Share index to 
end the day on a positive note, 
closing with a rise of 4p at 
41 5p. This followed Friday's 
sharp turn-round in the mar- 
ket amid reports that a big 
buyer was bidding for stock 
outside the market. 

Dealers had claimed that it 
could have been Mr Alan 
Bond, the bead ofCasilemaine 
Tooheys. the Australian brew- 
ery. But the buyer emerged as 
Mr Charles Knapp, the finan- 
cier. He has since confirmed 
that his privately-owned 
investment company, Trafal- 
gar Holdings, has built up a 


RECENT ISSUES 


near- 5 per cent stake in the 
shares. But market men have 
dismissed Mr Knapp as a 
potential threat to Grand 
Met's independence. He has 
built up a number of stakes in 
companies over the years and 
is regarded more as trader 
than a predator. 

But this will be little 
consolation to Sir Stanley 
Grinstead. the chairman of 
Grand Met and his board. The 
group looks vulnerable to a 
bid and is regarded by market 
men as the ideal break-up 
situation. Some brokers have 
already calculated that the 
group's assets could be worth 
at least 560p a share and that 
figure could prove irresistible 
in some quarters. 

Meanwhile, talks are 
continuing to sell Liggett My- 
ers. the group’s US generic 
cigarette subsidiary. A 
management buyout, or a 


consortium of investors, are 
thought to be the most likely 
bet. The asking price is reck 
oned to be just above £100 
million. 

Blue Circle Industries suf- 
fered a setback after recent 
speculative support as the big 
buyer who has haunted the 
shares for the past few days 
suddenly took fright at the 
shakeout in the rest of the 
market- T C Coombes, the 
broker, has done most of the 
buying and has acted in the 
past for Mr Robert Holmes a 
Court, the Australian 
businessman and Mr Terry 
Rams den. the international 
financier. Last week, there 
were stories in the market that 
Mr Holmes a Court was trying 
to build up a ncar-5 per cent 


• The absence of a bid has 
taken its toll of MEPC. After 
hitting a high of 380p, the 
shares lost another 6p to 310p 
yesterday. The group has 
now invested more than £500 
million in new develop- 
ments which may be discussed 
at today's seminar in the 
City, arranged by Rowe & Pit- 
man. The shares are look- 
ing cheap.

stake in Blue Grcte. The 
shares finished 5p lower at 
558p. 

ExteL the news agency and 
financial services group, 
slipped 3p to 348p, amid 
reports that the group is about 
to emerge as the white knight 
for McCorquodale, the 
specialist printer, which is 
fighting off a higher offer from 
rival Norton Opax following 
clearance from the Monopo- 
lies Commission. 

Last week, Extel’s priming 
subsidiary. Burrups. cele- 
brated the news that it had 
been awarded the contract to 
print the prospectus for Brit- 
ish Gas. 

Molins, the tobacco and 
corrugated board machinery 
manufacturer, slipped 2p to 
1 7 1 p. despite the news it had 
entered into a licensing agree- 
ment with General Motors to 
cover the use of its flexible 
manufacturing systems. In 
July, this column highlighted 
that Molins was pressing Gen- 
eral Motors for royalty pay- 
ments which could have 
totalled $400 million (£279 
million). However. Molins 
was not saying how much the 
licensing deal was worth 
yesterday. 

- Combined English Stores 
finished I Op lower at 21 3p

Last night, Hoare Govett, 
the broker, arranged for the

leading fund managers. High 
on the list of topics discussed 
were current prospects. 


COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


Chancellor treads a 
political tightrope 


Now is the lime for all good men to 
come to the aid of the party. The 
Conservative Party that is. whose 
annua! conference, beginning on 
October 7, may conceivably be in- 
fected by the chill wind of financial 
troubles. In the foreign exchange 
market, where sentiment counts for 
nothing, the pound is under pressure 
— the kind of pressure that can turn a 
slide in sterling into an avalanche. 
The gilt-edged market is failing, a prey 
to anxieties which the money men 
argue will be relieved only by a rise in 
bank base rates. 

Already this week two good men 
have come forward. On Sunday the 
Chancellor of the Exchequer. Nigel 
Lawson, in the wake of the failure of 
the five principal financial powers to 
reach agreement on a co-ordinated 
approach either to exchange or in- 
terest rates, spoke of “an almost 
unhealthy pre-occupation, in the mar- 
kets and in the press, with very short- 
term consequences/’ 

In the circumstances he could 
hardly have said anything different. 
The prop the markets had been 
expecting in the shape of a Group of 
Five agreement had not materialized: 
it did not require a former City editor 
of Mr Lawson's intelligence and 
perception to foresee how both press 
and markets would react yesterday. 

While the Chancellor kepi out of 
the limelight yesterday, the Governor 
of the Bank of England. Robin Leigh- 
Pembcrlon. put his distinguished 
head on the block. He ruled out any 
rise in interest rates, but apparently 
for one day only. This was a silly thing 
to have said and it detracted from his 
more cautious, and more diplomati- 
cally worded, later statements. Un- 
fortunately the Governor's words, 
while no doubt meant to reassure, 
sounded like the denials that used to 
precede by days or at most weeks the 
devaluations of sterling the financial 
markets had convinced themselves 
were inevitable. 

The same markets are convinced of 
the inevitability of higher interest 
rates. They may be wrong, as they 
were in January when the Treasury 
and Bank of England succeeded in 
holding the line for a week until the 
pressure for a one- point rise in base 
rates, then 12.5 per cent, abated. 

The markets’ feelings are best 
gauged by the difference between bank 
base rates and three-month sterling 
interbank rates. In January' interbank 
rates were % per cent above base rates. 
Yesterday the margin above base 
rates, now 10 percent, was II 3/16 per 
cent. This is loo much for the gilt- 
edged market, which is equally con- 
vinced that interest rates have to rise 
in order to shelter the pound. 

The weakness of sterling is the key 
factor. The effective rate slumped to a 
low yesterday despite the Bank of 


England’s moves to shore it up. The 
market view is that base rates need to 
be increased by two points, to 12 per 
cent, to relieve the pressure across the 
foreign exchanges and persuade the 
gill-edged market that the 
Government’s resolve is not slipping. 

Obviously the last thing the Prime 
Minister, her Chancellor and her 
Cabinet want is to face the party 
conference, and the country, having 
put up the cost of borrowing in 
dramatic fashion. Increases in base 
rates of more than a point arc 
associated in the public mind with 
crisis. 

Crisis is too strong a word for the 
current situation, however dire the 
behaviour of markets may seem. Bui 
1 2 per cent base rates would be critical 
for a Government, already concerned 
about its electoral prospects. Apart 
from the golden opportunities it 
would present to Mrs Thatcher's 
political opponents and the dismay 
they would cause among her support- 
ers. higher interest rates would have 
two disturbing consequences. 

In the first place they would make 
the British Gas issue more difficult, 
though not of course impossible: and 
even more serious, they would be 
certain to bring in their train higher 
mortgage rates. 

More expensive home loans might 
not. in themselves, be a bad thing in a 
roaring property market but they 
would register in the retail price index. 
Already the Government accepts that 
the Iasi RPI figure, which showed 
inflation down to 2.4 per cent, is the 
best likely to be seen this year. Dearer 
mongages would give a push to 
inflation at a very 1 inconvenient lime. 
Inconvenient in the sense that low 
inflation is one of the Government’s 
prime achievements and the beady 
eves of the world's money and 
exchange markets are focused on it. 

Royal Bank changes 

Royal Bank of Scotland yesterday 
announced a reorganisation at group 
level brought about by development 
into a broadly based financial services 
company. 

From October 1. Charles Winter 
will be confirmed as group chief 
executive. Rob Farley will become 
group deputy chief executive and will 
be succeeded in his job as head of the 
clearing bank by Bob Maiden, who 
moves from being general manager of 
the UK banking side. The changes are 
designed to convert the group holding 
company into an active body control- 
ling the whole group's affairs. 

Mr Farley, who was head of 
Williams & Glyn's domestic banking 
operation, took over as head of the 
RBS clearing bank when the two 
banks merged last year. Both Mr 
Winter and Mr Maiden have had long 
careers within RBS itself.

MONEY MARKET 
AND GOLD -r" 


Interbank saw considerable 
activity in the short dates, bat 
not much volume in the gen- 
eral range ttf periods as convic- 
tions deepened that a rise in 
base rates was imminent. Ma- 
turities from one to 12 months 
rose sharply. Day-to-day 
money was cheaply available 
once again as the authorities 
removed the shortage early to 
leave comfortable conditions 
for the rest of the day.

TSB Share Offer 


Nearly five million people have applied for TSB shares. 

That’s more than twice as many as in any other share offer 

We’re delighted with the success of the offer but so many people have applied 
we are unable to allocate shares to everyone. 

Nevertheless, over three million people will be receiving TSB shares. 

All customers who submitted a valid priority application will receive an 

allocation of shares. 

A ballot has been held on public applications with half receiving an allocation. 
The table below details the allocations. 


All staff and pensioners of the TSB Group who submitted a valid employee priority 
application will receive shares, although the larger applications have been scaled down. 

Jh view of the huge response to the offer; letters to everyone who applied for shares will now 
be posted on Thursday 9 October For successful applicants, these will stale the number 
of shares allocated. When this is less than the number applied fez; a refund will be enclosed. 
Fbr unsuccessful applicants, cheques will be returned. 

Dealings on The Stock Exchange will begin on Friday 10 October 
Thank you to everyone who said lbs.

Shop rents show top 

rPtllTTK! Market town shop n 

■* v-Llli have erown more than 


By Judith Hundey 

.Retail properly rents in 
Britain's market towns are 
outperforming the rest of the 
sector and outstripped infla- 
tion by 1 3 per cent this year, 
according to a new research 
index produced by Hilixer 
Parker, the surveyors. 


Market town shop rents 
have grown more than the 
firm's shop rent index for the 
last four years, confirming its 
view and that of investing 
institutions that such retail 
property is a highly perform- 
ing investment 
The shop rent index rose by 
40 per cent compared with 58 
per cent for the market town 
index in the last four years. 


By Lawrence Lem 

A severe cutback in produc- 
tion and staffing at one of its 
motor subsidiaries has forced 
the Adwest Group to make an 
extraordinary provision of 
£17 million before tax in its 
full-year results to June 30. 

Mr Frank Waller, chairman 
of the engineering, motor, 
defence and property develop- 
ment group, said yesterday 
that it had been “a difficult 
year" for Ad wesL“ We’ve had 
our problems — who hasn't 
these days?” 

Profits before tax for the 
year were £10 million against 
£8.7 million the previous year. 

However, the increase is 
before charging the costs of 
closing a substantial part of 
Adwest's subsidiary. Burman 
and Sons, at which 400 of the 


Profits up 
at Frank 
Usher 

By Alison Eadie 
Pretax profits at Frank 
Usher, designer of special 
occasion wear, jumped 55 per 
cent to £694.000 in the six 
months to July 31. on sales 39 
per cent up at £4.8 million. 

The figures are the first to be 
released since the company 
came to the unlisted securities 
market in May. after a 
management buy-out from 
Mrs Jennifer d'Abo's 
Selin court. 

The order book for the 1987 
spring-summer collection is 
ahead of the previous year. 
New areas like the Dusk label 
for the younger and less 
expensive market and ranges 
for the larger woman have 
both made promising starts. 

Overseas sales have also 
increased. 

The company is considering 
making a greater push into the 
United States market and 
taking shop-within-shop 
premises rather than selling 
directly to department stores. 
As predicted at the time of the 
USM placing, the interim 
dividend is 1.5p net. 


Smurfit clinches £800m deal 


Jefferson Smurfit. the paper 
and packaging group, is 
completing the £800 million 
purchase of Container 
Corporation of America to- 
day. making it one of the top 
10 paper companies in the 
world. 

The purchase is a complex 
one. involving a jointly- 
owned company with Morgan 
Stanley, the American invest- 
ment house. Initially Con- 
tainer Corporation will be 
treated as an associate com- 


By John Bell, City Editor 

pany. but with last reported 
sales of SI. 7 billion (£1.2 
billion), the impact on the 
Smurfit group will be sizeable: 

Group half-time profits re- 
leased yesterday were over- 
shadowed by the near 
completion of the US deaL 

The inclusion of an excep- 
tional credit of Ir£4.375 mil- 
lion helped to lift pretax 
profits to Ir£24.122 million 
compared with lr£20.32 mil- 
lion last time. 

Earnings per share were 6p 


compared with 5.5p. Mr Rob- 
ert Holmes. Smurfit's bead of 
finance, pointed out that the 
34 per cent fell of the dollar 
against the Irish Punt has 
badly affected results from the 
US operations, which account 
for 78 per cent of group sales. 

The group remains con- 
fident about the outlook for 
the second half of the year, 
especially in the US where 
prices are firming. Record 
levels of sales and profits are 
forecast for the full year. 




600 workforce have been 
made redundant after a 50 per 
cent fall in demand for the 
company's steering gear and 
lubricating pumps. 

The extraordinary charge is 
reduced from £17 million to 
£1.7 million after tax- But a 
further charge of about 
£550.000 will come through to 
next year's figures, reflecting 
the costs of redundancies just 
before the end of the 
company's financial year. 

Burman made a trading loss 
of £500.000. Its problems stem 
from a fell in demand and 
consequential overstocking in 
the tractor industry, and a 
decline in steering gear sup- 
plies to Iran. 

Adwest's profits from its 
defence companies - pur- 


chased from Oceonics for £13 
million in January — were £1.1 
million. Profits from the en- 
gineering division . declined 
from £1.5 million to £1.1 
million. 

Mr Waller, in his 
chairman's statement, says 
that orders “ continue to be 
difficult to obtain.” 

He is optimistic on pros- 
pects for the company's prop- 
erty division, where profits 
rose from £1.7 million to 
almost £2.1 million. Indica- 
tions from the Reading shop- 
ping centre, which the 
company will complete in 
February, are that demand 
from lessees will be high. 

Adwest is paying a final 
dividend of 6.83p a share 
(6.15p). bringing the total to 
8.53p(7.75p). 


Strong recovery in UK 
boosts Ruebv Portland 


Kwik-Fit interim 
profits up 56% 


Kwik-Fit, Europe's largest 
independent tyres and ex- 
hausts retailer, yesterday an- 
nounced pretax profits up 56 
per cent — a new half-year 
record. The news was 
accompanied by a free shares 
hand-out and dividend boost 

Mr Thomas Fanner, the 
Scottish millionaire who has 
built Kwik-Fit into a group 
with a chain of 325 service 
centres in the UK and Hol- 
land, announced pretax prof- 
its of £5.32 million compared 
with £3.43 million in the 
opening half of last year. 

He said sales of all the 
group's products had been 


“substantially up"; market 
shares for tyres and exhausts 
had increased significantly 
and group borrowings had 
been reduced by £8 million to 
less than £7 million. 

Mr Fanner was confident 
the full-year results would 
show continued good 
progress. 

The group is celebrating the 
half-year figures with a divi- 
dend increase from lp to 
1 .25p per share and sharehold- 
ers receive a shares hand-out 
on die basis of one new one for 
every four already held. 

Kwik-Fit’s shares gained 6p 
to 126p yesterday. 


Dominion in $27m US 
computer group buy 


By Lawrence Lew 


Dominion International, 
the financial services, natural 
resources and property hold- 
ing company, yesterday an- 
nounced the purchase of 
Transnational, a privately 
owned United Suites com- 
puter leasing group, for a 
maximum consideration of 
$27 million (£18.2 million). 

Mr Max Lewinsohn, 
Dominion's chairman, de- 
scribed the move as indicative 
of its increasing focus on 
financial services. 

Dominion is paying an 
initial $12 million far Trans- 
national which made profits 
before tax and drawings of $4 
million in 1985. 

Transnational, which fo- 
cuses on financing peripheral 
computer equipment for big 
corporate clients, had net 
tangible assets of $9.6 million 
at the end of last year before 
taxation provisions. 

Dominion, which made 
pretax profits of £1 1 million

‘Record Profits’ 


The anticipated strong recovery has 
materialised. Record profits were achieved 
in the first half. 

The UX has performed particularly 
i veil with strong profits from the neiviy 
acquired John Carr (Doncaster) PJLC and 
the UX Cement Division recovering 
strongly. 

All overseas subsidiaries increased 
their local trading profits but exchange rate 
fluctuations have eliminated the increase. 

Our acquisition programme 
continues, and benefits will be felt in 198 7. 

Prospects for the Group for the 
remainder of the year look favourable. 

The interim dividend has been 
increased to 3.ip from 2.9p.

They were obviously out in 
their shirt sleeves at Rugby 
Portland Cement in the first 
half of the year, busily mak- 
ing money. The interim state- 
ment was unusual for felling 
to mention the bad weather. 
However, with British ce- 
ment and lime trading profits 
up from £1 .8 million to £6.6 
million, it might have been 
churlish to look for excuses as 
to why profits were not higher 
stilL 

Rugby's southern bias pro- 
tected it from the worst of the 
weather, but the absence of 
adverse factors such as the 
miners* strike, together with a 
lower cost base provided the 
main boost to profits. Market 
share has recovered. Rugby 
should sell 2.4 million tonnes 
of cement this year, com- 
pared with 2-3 million tonnes 
last year. 

As yet. sales of imported 
Greek cement are negligible 
but domestic price rises have 
again gone into abeyance. 
Margins could suffer if it 
became necessary to adjust 
regional prices to meet the 
challenge. 

Although Rugby’s British 
cement business is now more 
stable and should be able to 
hold its own in the presenoe 
of importers, prospects for 
the industry are at best 
unexciting. The growth 
potential of the group is 
coming from the timber 
products business. John Carr. 

Carr made interim trading 
profits of more than £4 
million. Its profitability is 
improving as is its market 
share. Rothervale Joinery, 
acquired in July, will contrib- 
ute in the second half. 

Australia, though ahead in 
local currency terms, was 
affected by exchange move- 
ments. Full-year profits will 
reflea a lower level of activ- 
ities and a higher interest 
charge. 

The rapid expansion im- 
plemented at Addison 
Corporation in the US has 
doubled both turnover and 
the number of depots. This 
has had a short-term damag- 
ing affect on margins al- 
though the outlook is now 
improving. 

Profits of related cement 
companies in the US were 
tower River Cement in the 
southern states has been 
particularly badly hit by im- 
ports. 

The quality and mix of 
profits at Rugby Portand 
have changed almost beyond 
recognition in the last few 
years. Although there is still 
room for further improve- 
ment in the existing busi- 
nesses, the group is actively 
looking foracquisitions at the 
light end of the industry. The 
balance sheet will be able to 
cope as gearing should have

fallen by the year-end to 
about 25 per cent 

Profits of £32 million and 
15.4p earnings are likely this 
year. Although the short-term 
outlook for the sector is 
cloudy, the changes at Rugby 
make the shares attraaive on 
the fundamentals as well as 
on the traditionally high 
yield. 

John Menzies 

John Menzies seems to be 
rising above the disruption 
caused in London's news- 
paper wholesaling trade by 
the switch in distribution of 
News international's four ti- 
des. 

Lost sales will amount to 
£15 million in the full year, 
but Menzies has made the 
necessary adjustments in 
manning levels. It is not 
quantifying the lost profits or 
redundancy costs. 

Although distribution 
overheads are less susceptible 
to reduction, there is hope of 
filling up the vans again with 
the relaunched Today and the 
soon-to-be-launched In- 
dependent. 

Two acquisitions. Early 
Learning Centres, the educa- 
tional toy chain, and 
Readmore. the New York 
magazine subscription 
agency, performed well. 

Ten Early Learning stores 
will be open in the United 
States by Christmas and the 
British tally will rise to nearly 
140, from 96 when Menzies 
acquired it in May last year. 

The main benefit from the 
opening programme wiU 
come next year. Menzies is 
still on the look-out for 
acquisitions and may soon be 
announcing a home-based 
buy worth about £5 million. 

As always. Christmas is the 
crucial period. With con- 
sumer spending holding up 
and wages outstripping price 
inflation, the signs are 
favourable. 

Menzies is expected to 
make £21.5 million this year, 
giving a prospective p/e ratio 
of 1 3, on shares unchanged at 
3I3p. The shares are reason- 
ably priced against the stores 
sector. 


Inchcape 

Having publicly displayed 
all its dirty linen Iasi year. 
Inchcape was able io present 
a fer cleaner washing line 
with its interim results yes- 
terday. The figures, showing 
pretax profits rising from 
£36.2 million to £39.7 mil- 
lion, were at the wp end ot 
expectations and certainly 
justified The Times lipping 
Inchape as “recovery stock ol 
1986 ” in January’- The shares 
have risen by 47 per cent 
since then, adding a further 
5p to 446p yesterday. 

It was lnchape's motor 
division which drove the 
group to higher profits in the 
first half. The _ retail and 
wholesale operations in Brit- 
ain and the continent per- 
formed well but. more 
importantly, there were no 
more provisions to be made 
in Malavsia against Inchcape 
Berhad's heavy equipment 
and agricultural machinery 
business. 

Outside the motors di- 
vision. the picture was less 
rosy, with profits halving in 
both general merchanting 
and tea but showing a useful 
gain in insurance, where 
Inchcape expanded in May 
with the $27 million (£19.3) 
purchase of Intertek Services 
in the United States. 

The next 12 months are 
likely to sec more ac- 
quisitions as Mr George 
Turnbull, the chairman and 
chief executive, pursues his 
twin-track policy of expand- 
ing in areas of strength and 
rationalising the less profit- 
able sidelines 

Although the sharp price 
rise is bound to flush out 
profit-takers soon, there are 
still some good reasons for 
following Inchcape through. 

With more of last year's 
horrors being washed out in 
the second naif, the group 
should achieve pretax profits 
of £75 million, putting ihe 
shares on a p/e ratio of 10 
after a lower tax charge. And 
with so much of Inchcape's 
money coming from abroad, 
the stock has added flavour if 
sterling continues on its dis- 
mal downward path. 


Half-time profits rise at Watts Blake 


Pretax profits of Watts 
Blake Beame rose by 18.8 per 
cent to £2.53 million in the 
first half of this year. Turn- 
over expanded from £14.09 
million to £15.44 million. The 
board of this producer of ball 
and china clays explains that a 
good performance by the West 
German subsidiary was the 
main factor behind the higher 
profits. 

The interim dividend of this 
group, which is based in 
Newton Abbot Devon, is 
being raised from 1.47p to 
1.62p. It will be payable on 
November 28. 

Watts’s performance in 
Britain has been fairly static, 
with sales increasing by only 
£22,000. Better sales of ball 
day to the British ceramics 
industry have been largely 
offset by a reduction in the 
demand for china clay in the 
fertilizer industiy. 

China day sales were, 
nevertheless, higher because 
of continued strong demand 
from the paper industry. 

The company is now sitting 
on a "cash mountain” of 
about £62 million. Mr John 
Pike, the managing director, 
says that Watts is looking for 
further acquisitions in West 
Germany, wiU be incurring 
expenditure on plant and 
machinery as well as improv- 
ing product quality.

How the British 


kept on track 





C’j’i ^ .

Easy riders: today's tong-distance drivers demand sophisticated Information feedback from their lorries, modem facilities to ease journey strain and strong vehicle construction 


The European commercial vehicle 
industry, particularly the makers of 
medium and heavy lorries, is going 
through a troubled and painful 
period of restructuring. In the short 
term, some hard derisions must be 
made about future capacity and 
therefore jobs. 


The abandoning of truck-making 
in the UK. by Bedford, with the loss 


Hi-tech plus comfort 
for the man in the cab 


of 3. 150 jobs, is just one unfortunate 
manifestation of the malaise that 
has descended on the industry. 

In the long run, however, the 
future for trucks in Europe is not so 
bleak. As with so many smokestack 
industries, the demand pattern of 
the trucks business has changed and 
companies must adapt or perish. 

The European market ■ for 
commercial vehicles is sophis- 
ticated. Customers demand more 
fuel efficiency, more comfort for 
their drivers and more high technol- 
ogy than in many other parts of the 
world, thus allowing the manufac- 
turers to add greater value to their 
products and reap more profit. 

This has become necessary in a 
market where customers have be- 
come increasingly cosi-conscious. 
Efficient management of vehicle 
fleets is now recognized widely as a 
high-responsibility job no longer to' 
be relegated to the garage 
supervisor. 

The rise of specialist companies 
able to assume full control of fleets 
of lorries is also witness to the 
growing concentration on 
compeiiliveness.Permissible ve- 
hicle weights have been increased 
and bigger lorries carrying more 
goods are the result 

Inter-European Community bar- 
riers are coming down, allowing less 


troublesome transcontinental travel 
and less idle time for each truck. 

For all of these reasons, the 
expansion of the market for new 
trucks in Europe will be slow in the 
next decade compared to the pre- 
vious 10 years. The collapse of 
world truck demand in the 1980s 
has been fell chiefly in Europe and 
recovery is expected to be long and 
hard. 

DRI Europe, the forecasting 
group, said last yean “Anecdotal 
evidence of improved efficiency in 


Number of trucks 
for export slumped 


-trucks fleets through more sys- 
tematic fleet management, greater 
use of contract hire and other 
measures provides support for the 
view that the number of trucks in 
use is unlikely to grow rapidly in the 
future. 

“In turn, the demand for trucks in 
Europe is likely to recover at a 
rather sedate rate, and pre-recession 
market performance will not be 
regained over the next 10 years.’' 

In 1979, when demand tor trucks 
peaked, about 418.000 trucks over 
3.5 tonnes gross weight were reg- 
istered in Europe but by 1982 sales 


had plummeted to 282.000. At the 
same time, the number of trucks 
produced for export slumped from 
238,000 in 1980 -a record year- to 
just 164.000 in 1984. 

The situation was aggravated by 
the all-ioo-familiar industrial story 
of companies investing in too much 
new capacity during the good times 
only to be stuck with it when the 
pendulum inevitably swung against 
them. 

In 1983, European truck-makers 
suffered combined losses estimated 
at about £400 million, with BL's 
Leyland Vehicles leading the way 
with a net loss of £143.6 million. 
The only answer was to rationalize, 
cut back and hope for better times 
ahead. 

Though there had been some 
restructuring in previous years, the 
new wave of realignments in the 
European truck industry began with 
the mighty Ford deciding that it had 
had enough. After losing £100 
million on truck manufacture in 
Europe in five years. Ford called it a 
day and in April this year sold out to 
Iveco, the Fiat-owned producer that 
in Europe was already second only 
to Daimler-Benz. 


impressive UK dealer network. 

The merger has changed the face 
of the European truck industry in 
the way that a General Motors 
takeover of Leyland Vehicles would 
have done. A combined Iveco-Ford 
now challenges Daimler-Benz in the 
market for trucks over six tonnes 
and puts Renault firmly into third 
place. 


With GM now pulling out of 
European truck-making, the field is 
left to these manufacturers, with 
Volvo and Scania of Sweden — the 
only two companies to emerge 
relatively unscathed from the reces- 
sion — and Daf of the Netherlands 
some way behind. 


demand filtering through. 

The collapse of world oil prices : 
has fuelled expectations of higher 
economic growth in Europe — and , 
with increased trade comes greater 
demand tor lorries and vans. The | 
other side of that coin is a 
consequent cutback by oil produc- 1 
ing countries in their imports 
including trucks. 

DR] warns that the one-third of 
European output that is sold outside 
western Europe is at risk. Light 
trucks will continue to be a buoyant 
product in home markets, but heavy 
truck sales will be hit by reduced 
exports. The gradual recovery fore- 
seen for light and medium trucks 
abroad is expected to be "stopped in 
its tracks" because of spending ruts , 
in the Opec countries. 

The Japanese now have 20 per 
cent of the European light-van 
market and could reasonably expect j 


Need for Japanese to 
manufacture locally 


DRI now predicts steady expan- 
sion in all commercial-vehicle sec- 
tors. In a recent survey it predicted 
that total demand for trucks in 
seven major European Community 
markets would rise from 1,117,000 
in 1985 to 1.214.000 by the end of 
the decade. Output it said would 
remain at last year's level of 
1 ,343.000 for the next two years and 
then increase to a 1990 figure of 
1.442.000. 


The deal means that Ford will 
give up heavy truck production in 
Europe and gives Iveco access to an

year of more general cheer, says 
DRI. with no more contraction in 
export markets and better European 


to see this double by the end of the 
decade, particularly as a result of 
growing Japanese presence in Euro- 
pean manufacturing. 

It is a trend helped by two factors 
— European manufacturers' con- 
stant desire to cut development and 
production costs by spreading the 
risk using collaborative ventures 
and the need for Japanese producers 
to manufacture locally in an at- 
tempt to find a way aound import 
restrictions.

Industrial Correspondent 


Recovery from the recession 
has been a long and painful 
process for Britain's commer- 
cial-vehicle manufacturers, 
and the recent traumatic cats 
at General Motors' Bedford 
subsidiary have served to 
underline the fact that it is not 
yet achieved. 

The 1980-81 depression for 
truck-makers was the deepest 
since the Second World War 
and it was clear then that some 
tough decisions would have to 
be made. And the home 
producers have been fighting a 
battle against imports. In the 
Iate-I970s, foreign-proteced 
vehicles accounted for only 
about 20 per cent or the 
domestic market, bnt they are 
creeping np to the SO per cent 
mark. 

In the first eight months of 
this year, imports took slightly 
under 40 per cent of the lorry, 
van and bus market against 
3683 per cent a year earlier. 
In August alone, the penetra- 
tion from foreign vehicles was 
43.12 per cent, np from 41.3 
per cent. 

August is not so vital to the 
commercial- vehicle makers as 
it is to the car producers, but it 
still accounts for 12 per cent of 
the year's sales. With rising 
imports in a stagnating mar- 
ket, the message for what is 
left of the indigenous industry 
is not encouraging. 

With the Flat-owned Iveco 
now in control of Ford of 
Britain's heavy track business 
and the GM abandonment of 
Bedford's heavy range, much 
depends on the Leyland Ve- 
hicles subsidiary of the Rover 
Group, smaller companies 
such as ERF and Seddon 
Atkinson and, at the light end. 
Ford and what is left of 
Bedford to wave the Union flag 
over commercial-vehicle 
manufacture. 

Despite its problems, which 
relate to its size rather than to 
its prod nets, Leyland is doing 
well domestically. In the first 
eight months of this year it 
continued to lead the market 
for heavy trucks with sales of 
6362 compared with 5882 a 
year earlier. Ford's sales fell 
fej more than 1,000 to an 
eight-month figure of 5321. 

That situation is likely to 


change dramatically with the 
formation of Iveco Ford 
Trucks (IFT). Ford reckons 
that it has lost more than £100 
million in heavy truck manu- 
facture in the last five years. It 
decided that to maintain its 
UK base, it needed a 
collaboration venture. For 
Iveco, the attraction of getting 
a much sought-after UK 
manufacturing foothold was 
irresistible. 

IFT. with its big UK dealer 
network, is confident of win- 
ding at least 25 per cent of the 
domestic market. It is a force 
to be reckoned with, twice as 
big as Renault Trucks and 
rivalling the dominance of the 
heavy track sector by West 
Germany's Daimler-Benz. 

The increasing international 
nature of the commercial- 
vehicle industry serves again 
to underline the need for 
Leyland to get bigger to sur- 
vive, w hich it may do through 


Healthy rise in the 
purpose-builts 


expanding its association with 
Daf or by its planned 
privatization. 

With 10 per cent of the UK 
market suddenly available as a 
result of the Bedford decision. 
Leyland seems in a good 
position to take advantage and 
increase its domestic share. 


In the light-truck and van 
sectors of the UK industry, 
business has been booming 
since the recess ion. In the five 
years to the end of 1985. UK 
soles of light vans — most of 
them delivery vehicles derived 
from cars — and light trucks 
rocketed by 60 per cent to 
almost 100.000. The purpose- 
built heavy van market showed 
a healthy rise of nearly a 
quarter to more than 121,000 
units sold last year. 

But competition is cut- 
throat. with importers such as 
Renault, Volkswagen, 
Mercedes, Nissan and Citroen 
all having introduced new 
vehicles and all selling hard in 
the UK.

In the Ford domination of the 
market for larger vans, the new 
Transits take on the leading role in 
place of the old ones, which have 
bowed out after 20 years spent 
notching up more than two mil- 
lion sales. 

Growing production at the 
Southampton plant for Transits 
provided the great majority of the 
5 1 19 UK registrations in August 
compared with 4,702 in August 
last year. Though the eight-month 
total of 27.956 compares with 
30 276 for the corresponding pe- 
riod of 1985, the leeway is 
expected to be made up steadily. 

In this category, Bedford has the

which is around the same total as

Peugeot Talbot relies on im- 
ports m this category, with the 
Express vans among the 4,640 
registrations so far this year (4,733 
last lime round). Mercedes-Benz 
has a new range of medium vans 
offering higher payloads in a bid to 
stimulate sales in this sector, 
where its 4,525 UK registrations 
to date this year compare with 
4 310 in the first eight months of 
1985. 


Volkswagen is steady at around 
5,500 units for the eight months.

series, which also includes mini- 


bus and chassis cab variants as 
well as panel vans. 

Because of the voluntary agree- 
ment on the volume of motor 
imports from Japan, it followsihat 
Japanese figures tend to balance 
out at the end of the year* so no 
great importance can be attached 
to any trends meanwhile.

Bedford continues its stout battle 


Despite Bedford's decision to 
pull out of medium- and 
heavy-duty truck production' 
and wave goodbye to bus- 
chassis work, this commer- 
cial-vehicle arm of General 
Motors battles on stoutly at 
the lower end of the market. 

In the smaller ran class, 
where car-derivcd vans 
predominate, the 17,624 Bed- 
ford sales in Britain for the 
first eight months of this year 
compare with 13.096 in the 
corresponding period of 1985. 
These figures reflect the 
strength ol the Astra van and

VWs van based on the Polo 

Fond takes top place in the 
small-van market through the 
pulling power of the Fiesta^ 
and Escort vans, each with* 
diesd-engine variants. The 
18.412 new registrations this 
year are 3.700 down on 1985. 
but there is time for this to be 
made up — and more. 

Austin Rover activities in 
this sector resulted in 14.445 
sales of Austin Metro and 
Maestro vans this year ( 1 5.077 
in 1985) but a long-awaited 


hatchback delivers 40 mpg 

boost is about to come. This is 
a diesel engine for the Maestro 
van. a momentous happening 
because the unit is the first 
application of the high-speed, 
direct-injection diesel devel- 
oped by Austin Rover and 
Perkins.’ 

The engine, which will fea- 
ture in Austin Rover pas- 
senger cars later, promises fuel 
consumption at least 1 5 per 
cent better than existing en- 
gines. The absence of any 
diesel-engine option has been 


a severe handicap in recent 
years. 

Renault, which has more 
than trebled small-van sales 
this year to 2,829 presses the 
challenge still more with the 
addition of a new Renault 5 
van (with a choice of 1.1-litre 
petrol engine or 1.6-litre diesel 
unit) to boost the Extra. 

At 3.558 (3309) Peugeot 
Talbot light-van sales are from 
car-derived imports but if and 
when the Peugeot 309 gets a 
van alternative, the sales will 
be British in line with the 
built-in-Britain saloons. 

For Volkswagen. Polo and 
Golf vans have pulled in 1,880 
new registrations this year, 
which is about the same as in 
1985. Nissan's return, includ- 
ing the Sunny van. shows 1 305 
sales against 894 for the 
comparable period last year 
but the Anglo- Japanese under- 
standing about curbing Japa- 
nese motor imports into 
Britain does not suggest any 
great increase for the year asa^ 
whole. 

In the total light-van sector, 
new registrations at 67,820 so 
far this year are up by 2,850 
units, of which imports get an

ucts the other 648.

As the commercial-vehicle 
market in Britain marks time 
with no real hope of an 
improvement in sales for the 
rest of this year, the truck 
expectations are pinned on the 
seven-year switch. 

It is reasoned that with 
seven years, the usual life of a 
new truck before renewal, 
things can only get better. 
Especially as seven years ago 
the 1979 truck sales were a 
record at 79,856 units. This is 
how U K truck sales have fared 
since then: 1980,61.300; 1981, 
44.950: 1982. 45.349: 1983, 
49,950: 1984, 52,821; 1985, 
55.833. 

For the first eight months of 
this year truck sales of 36,322. 
compared with 37,057 in the 
similar period of last year. In 
those figures, 22,303 units 
were British this time round 
(23.875 in January-August last 
year) with imports at 14,019 
(13,182). 

On that reckoning, the Brit- 
ish truck market will do well 
to reach 55.000 units this year. 
Producers expect a consid- 
erable improvement next year 
but any thought of a bonanza 
is restrained by overcapacity 
in Europe.

carry, the conventional bus is 
the economic alternative. 

Meanwhile, it is ironic that 
Ley land Tracks, which head 
the eight-months bos and 
coach registration at 698 units 
(826 in the similar period of 
1985), has such an uncertain 
future, while Bedford with 208 
units registered (197 in the 
1985 penod) is palling ont of 
bus chassis work altogether. 

Perhaps it if just as well 
tint the bus and coach section 
at the British Motor Show in 
Birmingham next mouth will 
be dosed to the public. 

Evidently the industry 
wants to be alone until it is 
seen when a recovery will start 
and what form it will take. 


Leyland range also features 
the Freighter with which the 
company makes a return to 
the fire engine market. 26 
having been ordered by the 
Lancashire county fire 
brigade. 

So far this year Leyland 
have had 6,362 new track 
registrations compared with 
5.882 in January-August, 
1985. 

Mercedes-Benz maintain a 
vigorous challenge with the 
4,948 hew registration more 
than 600 unite better than a 
year ago. Volvo have kept 
steadily around the 3.000 
mark. The FL7. FLI0. F10 
and FI 2 tracks have new 
chassis frames made of high- 
strength sled for lower chassis 
weight and greater payloads. 

MAN registrations at 1.776 
units are 760 more than in the 
first eight months of 1985. 

Through the Dodge busi- 
ness it now owns Renault 
Truck Industries are more 
active as a home producer on 
the British market than an 
importer. Renault Dodge 
registrations so far ibis year at 
2.865 compared with 3305 
last year. The presence is 
particularly strong in the local

ing vehicles with refuse

COMPUTER HORIZONS/1 


Edited by Matthew May 


Are the Japanese finally 
making an impact ? 


i 




Honeywell, ihe American 
computer and control equip- 
ment firm, announced last 
week that it wants to mei^e 
the computer part of its 
business with NEC of Japan 
and the state-owned French 
computer firm BulL 

It was a decision greeted 
with Jiule su prise. Honeywell 
was seen as badly in need of 
some sort of restructuring and 
all three companies have pre- 
viously had strong ties in 
producing and selling comput- 
ers — until the nationalization 
of Bull in 1 982 Honeywell had 
a 47 per cent stake. 

Bui it is the first major 
example of three-way co-op- 
eration between such firms in 
America. Japan and Europe 
and for NEC in particular — * 
already among the top 10 
sellers in each of the three 
fields of computers, commu- 
nications and serai- 
‘ conductors, il gives a further 
inroad into the US and Euro- 
pean markets. 

Details of the potential joint 
venture have yet to be sorted 
out but NEC, with an £8 
bilfion a year turnover, will no 
doubt welcome the .possibil- 
ities of selling more of its 
products through the distribu- 
tion. networks of the other two 
companies. 

This particular venture is a 
signal that after US domina- 
tion in the computer industry 
since- its inception, the time 


may be approaching when the 
Japanese can finally start to 
make inroads outside their 
home country. 

IBM, for example, has long 
dismissed the possibility that 
it need fear any real, com- 
petition from European or US 
companies admitting only the 
Japanese as a long-term 
threat 

The planned tie-up follows 
closely from the finalization 
earlier this month of- the 
merger between the US com- 
puter firms Burroughs and

Sperry, with such moves being 
seen as increasingly necessary 
to try to combat both the 
falling profits throughout 
nearly all of the industry and 
the overwhelming dominance 
of IBM in the field. 

Its turnover, running at £33 
billion last year, exceeded the 
computer related turnover of 
the next 12 companies put 
together. 

Honeywell is known to 
want to concentrate on the 
more profitable pans of its 
business, such as aerospace 
and defence contracts and 
automation and control 
equipment It has also ex- 


pressed an interest in buying 
Sperry's aerospace and marine 

groupL 

Like many others, 
Honeywell has seen a sharp 
fall in profits and last month 
announced it wanted to lose 
about 4 per cent of its 
workforce by the end of the 
year — about 4,000 jobs. 
Falling profits have reduced 
the price to earnings ratio of 
many large computer com- 
panies. but with large cash 
flows they can still be an 
attractive proposition to 
others. 

Burroughs recently revealed 
that Sperry, now its subsid- 
iary. put in a bid for 
Honeywell at about £70 a 
share after preliminary merger 
talks with Honeywell. It was a 
figure considerably lower than 
its asset value and stock 
market analysts had for some 
time been pointing out that a 
restructuring by Honeywell 
was overdue. 

NEC will be the heavy- 
weight partner in any agree- 
ment both through its larger 
turnover. £2.3 billion last year 
for computer activities nearly 
double that of each of the 
other two. and through its 
current sales of machines 
through them. 

Earlier this month NEC 
announced a joint venture 
with Honeywell to sell 


supercomputers, powerful 
mainframes hugely used for 
number crunching by sci- 
entists and engineers, through- 
out North America. 

Honeywell's information 
systems business already sells 
NEC mainframes after a five- 
year agreement last year to sell 
at least ISO and Bull also 
markets NEC's larger 
computers. 

With the exception of one 
sale by Fujitsu, only NEC has 
managed to sell Japanese 
supercomputers to America. 
But NEC still only sells less 
than IS per cent of its com- 
puter products outside Japan 
and while acknowledeged to 
spend more on product 
development than most — 12 
per cent of sales revenue 
compared to eight per cent by 
IBM — it is considered to be 
weak in software and perhaps 
not pay enough attention to 
service and support functions. 

Japan's work on the next 
generation of computers and 
software, the so-called fifth 
generation, is seen as an 
attempt to leapfrog the rest of 
the computer industry. 


It is going slower than 
planned but if it works. NEC 
will have a strong base in both 
Europe and America to push 
Japanese computing out into 
the rest of the world and 
perhaps even worry IBM. 


Wanted: Literate writers 
for ‘techspeak’ industry 


While parents, teachers and 
non-technologists are 
complaining about 

‘'techspeak" creeping into 
everyday language, it appears 
that technology is at last 
making an effort to introduce 
more- of the English language 
into computer languages and 
systems. 

Jobs with fourth generation 
languages, for example, are 
more likely to go to those 
people who can speak and 
write clear English. And the' 
demand for more user- 
friendly systems, under- 
standable to those non- 
computer people who have to 
use them, has been growing in. 
recent years. 

Yet despite this trend, and 
often regardless of the tech- 
nical expertise available in the 
computer industry, few highly 
trained data processing people 
can write welL Many user

accompany microcomputers

because of the poor standard 
of writing and presentation. 

This problem has long been 
recognized among the larger 
computer manufacturers and 
companies that supply ad- 
vanced systems for defence 
and complex industrial uses. 
Now. because of user com- 
plaints, management in some 
branches of the computer 
industry is realizing that docu- 
mentation should be written 
by people who know how to 
write. 

So technical authors, and 
particularly those who know 
software, are in greater de- 
mand .than ever. 

"Some of the top technical 
writers, many of whom are 
self-employed, have special- 
ized knowledge and experi- 
ence of specific types of 
software,” said Peter 
Hucklesby. technical publica- 
tions manager of the 
Stevenage-based DB Design 
Services. Group, a contract 
technical writing and recruit- 
ment agency. “Such authors 
can virtually name their own 
price." he said. 

“A good writer can expea to 
earn up to £24,000 a year 
working either on contract or 
in-house, while the average 
writer ran get £ 1 8.000 a yeat” 


contract through a' specialized 
technical writing agency. But 
for career security, a perma- 
nent company position may 
be preferable. 

For a permanent writing job 
it is necessary to approach the 
larger computer firms. Small- 
er companies cannot usually 
justify full-time techncial aut- 
hors 1 and will contract out 
their writing work. 

It as a precise discipline 
demanding an organized, 
analytical mind. 

IBM, a huge producer of 
documentation, emphasizes 
the need for such discipline 
and the ability to present 
concepts consistently through- 
out a user manual. Although 
even IBM contracts out writ- 
ing work, it still maintains a 
40-strong staff of technical 
writers at its Hursley develop- 
ment laboratory. 

Typical of most large com- 
puter firms it has a dear 
picture of what constitutes a 
suitable candidate for tech- 
nical writing. 

First, a good understanding 
of one or more specific aspects 
of technology - either hard- 
ware or software. Also im- 
portant is the ability to write 
and communicate with others. 
Communications skills are 
essential in gathering informa- 
tion and in its presentation so 
that the eventual user can 
understand it. 

People who have some 
management ability and self- 
motivation are necessary as 
they may have to handle 
several projects at once and 


manuals with flexible “help- 
based" screen documentation 
prefeces to systems supplied 
on disc. 

Yet despite a dear demand 


poses little problem. Rarely do for technical writers, jobs are

skills because mostly you are 
writing on the latest develop- 
ments relating to your own 
technical subject matter. 

This means you can always 
revert to the discipline you 
were working on before. Italso 
seems that age is little barrier 
to becoming a technical 
writer. 

“Some technical writers 

The career 
requires a 
certain type 
of person 


move back and forth between 
writing and development 
work throughout their 
careers," said Terry White, 
joint managing director of 
Howard Electronics, part of 
the Howard Organization 
which supplies contract and 
permanent technical writing 
staff to companies throughout 
Europe. 

Computer communications 
is one area where firms are 
crying out for knowledgeable 
writers. Apart from commer- 
cially-related publications 
work, authors who ran write 
about defence and military 
systems are always needed. 

Ex-servicemen — usually 
officers — with a good tech- 
nical background in the 
Armed Forces have the 
advantage of knowing Min- 
istry of Defence procedures. 
They have also usually been 
taught structured writing 
techniques. 

Once into technical writing, 
a wider knowledge of state-of- 
the-ans systems can be gained. 

The need for writing skills 
as well as technical under- 
standing is likely to become 
even greater as more systems 
and software developers 
contemplate replacing printed 


because commercial systems 
developers leave the writing 
requirement decisions until 
late in a project when they 
have a better idea of the 
precise skills and writing time 
scales needed. 

It also explains the popular- - 
ity of contract authoring, 
whose agencies maintain com- 
prehensive lists of writers with - 
specific technical under- 
standing. 

Qualifications are obtain- 
able in technical authorship 
and a number of colleges of 
further education run courses 
leading to City and Guilds 
certificates in the subject. 

Other organizations also 
run basic technical writing 
skills courses. The Institute of 
Scientific and Technical 
Coram motors can give ad- 
vice and information on ca- 
reers and courses in the 
subject. 

Although most courses are 
not usually aimed specifically 
at computing, they are de- 
signed to teach technologists 
the precise art of technical 
writing 

For the computer literate 
interested in the field, a good 
command of the English lan- 
guage is needed along with the 
ability to overview a system's 
objective in new user terms. 
They must also understand 
their technical discipline and 
know how to ask questions on 
it. 

For some there ran be 
further career progression 
from technical writing into 
corporate communications 
and technical press work.

US firm 
delays new 
architecture 

■ The American computer firm 
Hewlett-Packard has had to delay 
deliveries of a new business computer 
system based on RISC architecture -a 
novel form of computer design the 
industry is only beginning to accept. 
Hewlett-Packard announced in March 
that it was to base nearly all of its future 
computer products on RISC (Reduced 
instruction Set) and though a technical 
system win be available in December 
as planned, the business version will be 
delayed until mid-1987. 

It is the first company to base an entire 
product range on the new architecture 
and other computer manufacturers are 
watching its progress keenly. Alan 
Fumiss. the UK marketing manager, 
said the delays were due to "additional 
tuning requirements" and not the 
RISC technology which builds simple 
instructions into the hardware of a 
machine while putting less frequently 
used instructions into software. This, 
say its proponents, makes computers 
more powerful and cheaper. 

Stopping mistakes 

■ The Atvey Directorate, the 
Government-backed computing initiative 
in response to Japan's national 
research programme, has announced a 
£2 million project to look into the 
problems of specifying software 
requirements. More than 80 per cent 

of mistakes in software could be avoided 
if more attention was paid in the 
planning stages it says. "Existing 
specification procedures are widely 
recognized as inadequate causing costly 
and potentially dangerous deficiencies 
in computer software." The protect, to be 
completed by 1988, will be conducted 
by the University of Manchester Insrtute 
and Technology, Data Logic and 
Sdcon. 

Professional shortage 

■ Despite the share fall in sales of 
home computer software from the heady 
days a couple of years ago. there is 
apparently still a shortage of professional 
programmers who can write good 
games programs - several of whom have 
made the switch from business 
programming. The software firm Hewson 
said it is looking for a new generation 

of "would-be software superstars" to 
work freelance. And although there 
are no guarantees, said the managing 
director Andrew Hewson, a succesful 
tme could net the author 
royalties. Hewson is on 

Logica bounces back 

The software firm Logica has 
announced pre-tax profits of £6.8 mSfion,

office automation divisions after hefty 
losses came to £12.2 million- £3.7

■ Preventing unauthorized access to 
computers has traditionally been the field 
of corporate computing, but 
accountants Detortte Haskins & Sells 
believe the spread of micros has 
meant many should now be protected.

IBM chief for France 

M The former head of IBM Europe, 
Jacques Maisonrouge. has been made 
director general of industry for the 
French government. His dose links with 
American industry and his 38-year 
career with IBM until 1984, coupled with 
his lack of previous Civil Service 
experience, are both seen as a break with 
tradition for the French who are 
usually suspicious of American business 
influence and IBM in particular.

Going Online 

■ If cheap PCs take off as expected 
they could provide an important fKip to a 
whole range ol associated services 
which in themselves become cheaper 
operations. Database services are one 
example of an industry that now has a 
"reduced entry price, as fee 
marketing industry puts it. The Cleveland- 
based Headland Press has produced 

a new guide. How to Go Online, looking at 
software and systems to connect with 
outside databases of business and 
technical information. There are two 
major stumbling blocks with joining such 
services, said the author Ed Stanton, a 
lecturer in computing at Newcastle 
Polytechnic, knowing how to start and 
having lo learn complex commmand 
languages. 

His book, he said, helps with the 
first and a new generation of easier to use 
online services should eventually 
solve the second. Tumbling pnees do not 
however, appearto have hit the 
business guide trade as fee 134-page

COMPUTER HORIZONS/2 


Why an old road-runner needs its MOT 


By David Gnest 

“Physician, heal thyself is a 
maxim that the computer 
industry seems to have taken 
to heart. With boundless en- 
ergy it often creates as many 
problems as it solves, but 
given time it attends to these 
as well. 

The latest example concerns 
a problem created nearly 30 
years ago — Cobol program- 
■ ming. Like old cars held 
together by Jubilee dips, 
many old Cobol programs are 
barely roadworthy. Software 
engineers have come up with a 
radical solution - re-build 
' (hem automatically. 

Their products are called 
Cobol re-structuring tools, 
and the suppliers predict that 
1986 will prove to be the year 
” they come into their own. But 
so far they have been largely 
an American phenomenon — 
European users are few and far 
between. 

If they do the job they are 
supposed to. re-structuring 
tools could make a great 
impact on Britain's data 
processing labour shortage. 

The chronic scarcity of 
skilled staff strikes as hard at a 
company's existing stock of 
programs as at those it hopes 
to develop in the future. 
Programs need constant atten- 
tion. but programmers prefer 
to work on new projects. They 
have good reasons for avoid- 
ing the old ones. 

As programming languages 
go. Cobol is wordy. A consid- 
erate programmer can make a 
line of Cobol code resemble a 
terse kind of English. 

But several thousand lines 
of code swim before the eyes: 
if they resemble English at all 


it's the English of Finnegan's 
Wake. When a large program 
goes wrong, a Cobol haystack 
can hide a needle effectively. 

Cobol has been in use for 27 
years and it has been the 
dominant language for many 
of them. Vast numbers of 
programs have been written, 
composed of billions of lines 
of code. 

An old traditional program 
starts at the beginning and 
works doggedly through to the 
end in a linear fashion; such a 
program is called monolithic. 

Modern structured 
programming splits the pro- 
gram up into small units that 
do distinct tasks within the 
overall design. The difference 
could be compared to model 
building 7 using match-sticks, 
glue ana imagination it's pos- 
sible to build a scale replica of 
HMS Victory, but the job is 
easier with moulded _ plastic 
parts and exploded views of 
the plan. 

Monolithic programs, it is 
estimated, constitute 60 per 
cent of the total European

stock. 75 per cent in the US. 
TTiey present a number of 
serious problems. Being old, 
they are by implication central 
to the function of the com- 
pany they serve; they will also 
have been changed many 
times over the years. 

To a programmer trained in 
structured methods they will 
probably be indecipherable. 
Restructuring tools aim to

‘Like old cars held together with Jubilee clips, many Cobol programs are barely roadworthy' 


turn old programs into some- 
thing that a modem pro- 
grammer will recognize and be 
able to work with. 

They dismantle the mono- 
lith and impose a logical 
structure on it, regurgitating it 
in the form of connected 
modules. They are themselves 
programs and some enthu- 
siasts claim they exhibit a 
form of intelligence. 

But if the Cobol program 
being re-structured contains 
flaws, they will faithfully re- 
produce the flaws. They don't 
change the function of the 
program.

Technology of Massachusetts, 
is looking for a European

The company's marketing 
director, Gordon

said: “The key question we are 


always asked by companies is 
does it work?; so we offer a 
trial to restructure 5,000 lines

promised too many miracle 
cures." 

In Britain the 
Government's advisory body 
on computing matters, the 
Central Computer and Tele- 
communications Agency, has 
embarked on an evaluation of 
re-structuring tools. 

It promotes standards in 
government department 
computing and structured 


methods are among them. But 
part of its brief in examining 
re-structuring tools is to deter- 
mine where a data processing 
department might as well cut 
its losses and start again from 
scratch. 

Depending on the size of the 
program, this can be a costly 
option. An often quoted 
example is the case of Pacific 
Gas and Electric, in Califor- 
nia. This utility faced the 
prospect of re-writing 900,000 
lines of code at an estimated 
cost of £13 million. Instead it 
used a restructuring tool that 
cost just over S 1 00 , 000 .' 

Restructuring may prove to 
be no more than a stop-gap 
measure. On the other hand, 
the technique may lead to 
products of greater versatility. 
In either case, the future for 
capable Cobol programmers 
seems assured.

Ruthless Big Blue and 

the birth of the hacker 


Until the mid-1970s, the prevailing public 
image of information technology was austere 
and exotic. It focused on mysterious, highly 
expensive machinery that belonged in the 
exclusive care of trained technicians. 

Its operations had to be discussed in uie 
esoteric language of information theory, with 
the aid of much mathematics. As an extension 
of the human mind, the computer was coming 
to be seen as necessary for all advanced 
scientific thought and high-level decision 
making, a role that still further distanced it 
from public access. . . 

its reputation as a rival to human intelli- 
gence may have had much to do with science 
fiction exaggerations — like the rebellious 
computer HAL in the film 2001 — but there 
was already a lively discussion abroad about 
the way in which automation would soon 
revolutionize the assembly line and the white 
collar workplace by taking over an ever larger 
range of skilled employment. There was very 
little the public knew about computers that did 
not make the machines seem elite and 
intimidating. , 

Perhaps most dramatically of all, by way of 
saturation television coverage- the nation had 
been many times treated to the sight of the 
Johnson Mission Control Center in Houston, 
where massed ranks of technicians sealed 
before massed ranks of computers supervised 
the triumphs of the still glamorous space 
program. 

Quite as intimidating as such media imagery 
was the social feet that the province of 
information technology was still under tight 
corporate control. Indeed, it was dominated 
by the most elite and private of corporations: 
IBM. a high tech Colossus ihat stood astride 
the world, suave, aloof and imperiaL 

Since the war years, “Big Blue,” as IBM was 
known in the industry, had grown into the 
quintessential embodiment of the technocratic 



Hi-tech Colussus that 
stood astride the world 


business style. As dose to a world monopoly as 
any firm had ever come, its control of the 
industry was assumed to be efficient to the 
point of infallibility. 

By the mid-1960s, it owned two-thirds of the 
information technology business. What it did 
not own largely survived by its sufferance, 
salvaging the crumbs that IBM let fell from its 
plate. So large and domineering was IBM that 
it was not regarded as anybody's 
“competition”: rather, it was the 
“environment” within which everybody else 
did business. 

Other companies surrounded IBM like the 
vassals of the crown; their business was mainly 
to do what IBM chose not to do or to produce 
plug-in compatibles for IBM equipmenL 

True to its lordly stature, IBM had brought 
the postwar organization man ethos to its 
perfection. It was run like a taut ship whose 
disciplined crew was coolly ruthless in the 
marketplace, fanatically loyal to the firm, 
machine-tooled to fit the corporate chain of 
command. 

But at some point in the 1960s, infallible Big 
Blue made a miscalculation. The possibility 
was at band for making small low-priced 
computers. This could be done as simply as by' 
detaching existing terminals from their main- 
frames and upgrading them into autonomous 
data processors. 

Such machines would have minimal mem- 
ory and could only run reduced programs, but 
they would be more compact and cheaper than 
even the minicomputers then being used in 
offices and laboratories. 

In effect, they could be household appli- 
ances. IBM nevertheless elected to keep its 
money and brains concentrated on the 
development of large-scale computers. This 
was, of course, where most of its thriving 
military and civilian market lay: with expen- 
sive mainframe machines and their 
accessories. 

Perhaps, in part, IBM's decision also sprang 
from the feet that the company saw the future 
of information technology in its own corporate 
image: rigidly hierarchical and centrally 
controlled. IBM had never conceived of selling 
computers to the general public. 

IBM's machines went out to the world as 
locked black boxes; their inner architecture 
was propriety, meant to be accessible only to 
company engineers.

book to be published next month, I Re 
Cult of information, the amAoc 
Theodore Roszak, above, charts how 

IBM had to come to terms with u» 
microcomputer 

Where Big Blue would not lead, other mai&r 
computer firms were not prepared to tread; its 

decision to maintain its 

allowed a chink to open in the walls of the 

industry's citadel. , . . . 

The chink was the microcomputer, a highly 
affordable, table-top machine suitable : for 
home and personal use. IBM and Jhei outer., 
major firms were not unaware of the technical 
feasibility of such a computer. 

Computers had been getting 
as they grew more powerful, and au the where 
becoming progressively cheaper. 

IBM and other companies had band-tooled in- 
house prototypes ot computers small enough 
to be carried in a briefcase. But was there a 
significant market for such a device. Big Bit* 
judged not. Others thought differently- ^ 

The most important of these “others was 
the growing population of young computer 
enthusiasts who had been gathering along the 
fringes of computer research for the better part 
of a generation. , r , 

In his study Hackers: Heroes of the 
Computer .ige. Steven Levy traces their 
origins back to the MIT computer laborat ory 
of the late 1950s. where gifted students were 
often allowed to congregate, sometimes stay- 
ing on through the night to run the equipmenL 
Most of these early computer addicts were 
cut from the Tom Swift mould: adolescent 
.mechanical geniuses capable of improvising 
brilliantly out of scraps and patches for the 
sheer love of solving sweet problems. Among 
them were to be found the inventors of the first 
computer games and toy robots, novelties they 
did not even trouble to patent 
By the late 1960s. some of these youthful 
talents had found their way into the lower 
echelons of the computer industry. There, a 
few of them were already experimenting with 
primitive microcomputers, all of which would* 
be shelved by the companies they worked for. 
In tite folklore of computer history, the early 

The archetypal ‘nerds’ 
of the profession 

hackers are remembered as a special breed. 
Reportedly, many of them were socially 
gauche to the point of being unworldly. They 
are the archetypal “nerds” of the profession. 

Asa group they possessed even less political 
consciousness than commercial savvy; they 
were purely technicians from first to last. But 
by the end of the 1960s, there was another spe- 
cies of hacker on the horizon, emerging mainly 
on the West Coast from the ranks of the anti- 
war movement 

These were the radical or guerrilla hackers, 
who were destined to give the computer a 
dramatically new image and a political 
orientation it could never have gained from 
Big Blue or any of its vassals in the 
mainstream of ihe industry. 

At their hands, information technology 
would make its closest approach to becoming 
an instrument of democratic politics.

The hi-tech 
hysterics that 
hit Wall St 


A 


By Chris Naylor 

under three weeks ago 
Wall Street collapsed with the 
worst one-day fell in the Stock 
Exchange in a quarter of a 
century. In that day the Dow 
Jones industrial average suf- 
fered its biggest one-day loss 
5LSPIS?.?* Points since the 
1929 Wall Street Crash, and 
by.the next day the total fall 
for the week was the worst 
ever. 

So dramatic was the col- 
lapse that Larry Speakes. the 
White House spokesman, was 
moved to words of reassur- 
ance and in Britain, where 
more than £4 billion was 
wiped off share values in the 
wake of this 1986-style Wall 
Street crash. Nigel Lawson 
*as equally moved to stress 
. there was no cause for panic. 

' " Yet financial correspon- 
dents describing the events 
were sufficiently moved by the 
occasion to use words like 
“‘bloodbath”, “thunderbolt” 
and. in one telling instance, 
“volatile”. 

It's that last word that may 
best describe what happened 
on the day. For the problem 
may just possibly have had 
rather more to do with the 
concept of hysteresis than 
hysterics. 

Essentially, the important 
feature of the events was that a 
great deal of the huge selling 
: was initiated and carried out 
entirely by computer, with 
some analysts claiming that 
up to 40 per cent of the day’s 
record trading had been car- 
ried out this way. 

In computer terms, this is 
not too hard a task - it's the 
sort of task that so-called 


expert systems can cope with. 
With sophisticated electronic 
trading seen as one way to get 
competitive in the City's 
financial deregulation next 
month, the way such systems 
work bears examination. 

Expert systems are com- 
puter programs that embody 
the knowledge of a human 
expert and can be used to 
produce expen derisions auto- 
matically. At its simplest this 
might be no more than a 
system which had' the 
“knowledge” to sell when 
prices fall m order to jump off 
the market if the going gets 
worse. Although, at its most 
complex, the expertise built in 
could be considerably more 
sophisticated than this. 

But now to hysteresis 
which, as every engineer 
knows, is the delay between a 
cause of its effect and. by way 
of il lustration, consider your 
central heating system. 

A central heating system 
with a thermostat attached is a 
feedback system. The room 
temperature affects the 
thermostat and. when it de- 
tects a temperature fall below 
a certain point, that thermo- 
stat swiches on the central 
heating boiler. So, the fall in 
room temperature causes the 
boiler to switch on which, in 
tum. raises the room tem- 
perature until the altered feed- 
back from the thermostat 
causes the boiler to switch off 
again. 

But if your thermostat is set 
at a comfortable 20 degrees 
Cen trigrade, exactly when 
should the thermostat switch 
the boiler on and off? For if it 
switches at exactly 20 degrees. 





Screen deals: Up to 40 per cent of selling was initiated by computer daring recent Stock Exchange falls 


the boiler will be switching on 
and ofTIike a demented yo-yo. 
This demented switching is 
known by the technical term 
of chatter and is a direct 
consequence of a feedback 
system having a low hyster- 
esis. That is to say, the effect 
follows too swiftly upon the 
cause. 

in practice, room thermo- 
stats are designed to have a 
reasonable amount of hyster- 
esis built into them so that the 
effect of turning on the boiler 
follows relatively slowly from 
a drop in room temperature 
and isn't initiated by just a 
slight draught. 

So. back to our financial 


expert system. This is also a 
feedback system rather like 
domestic central heating. In 
its simplified form, when ihe 
price of some stock drops it 
unloads it on to the market 
But it can do this much more 
rapidly than its human 
counterparts — which, of 

4 A demented central 
heating system’ 

course, could bestow a greatly- 
desired commercial edge upon 
its owners. 

The only snag is that the 
hysteresis of the expert system 
tends to be mucb less than the 
hysteresis of the human 


equivalent and, if the system 
has been set up to embody the 
currently human responses 
which are appropriate to their 
intrinsically lower hysteresis, 
then it could begin to act like a 
demented central heating 
system. 

But there is one important 
difference between a central 
heating system and an expert 
system designed to work in the 
financial markets. A central 
beating system is based on the 
concept of negative feedback 
in which the act of turning on 
the boiler ultimately leads to a 
rise in room temperature 
which will eventually cause 
the boiler to turn off again. 


The world’s stock markets 
are in some measure systems 
based on positive feedback in 
which the act of selling initi- 
ated by price falls causes 
further price falls when then 
fed back into the system. 

In short, expert systems 
working in the world's stock 
markets could embody such 
low hysteresis and such a large 
element of positive feedback 
that they could well begin to 
display a human characteristic 
which is hopefully not 
characteristic of the human 
expert - panic. 

The events earlier this 
month could well have been a 
foretaste of that 


Desktop publishing and the latest challenges to Apple 


i i 


By Geof Wheelwright 
Apple’s virtual monopoly of 
•desktop publishing on micros 
has ended with the launch of 
several new programs to han- 
dle the task for the IBM PC 
and its workalike computers. 

Aldus Pagemaker, the 
desktop publishing software 
program which helped to 
establish the Apple Macintosh 
as the leader m this field, is 
now available in a new ver- 
sion called PC Pagemaker. It 
uses the Windows, picture- 
based operating system by 
Microsoft. 

But it will not be without 
competition as Xerox is due to 
announce a program called 
Ventura Publisher from the 
California-based Ventura 
Software early next year. 

Rather than simply allow- 
ing the putting together of 
pages electronically, it is more 
geared towards setting in type 
several pages at once, making 
it more suitable for typesetting 
books and technical journals. 

Ventura Publisher uses the 
other major picture-based 
operating system for the IBM 
PC - Digital Research's 
GEM. In the meantime, Xe- 
rox announced its own office 



Dr Charles Geschke, left, and Dr John Waraock, the 
founders of Adobe Systems 

publishing system last week, information of Amstrad’s new 


the Documentor. 

The applications for this 
new breed of software are 
growing fast- Not surprisingly, 
some of the pioneering users 
of desktop publishing systems 
are themselves involved in the 
computer business. 

Future Publishing, a Somer- 
set-based company which pro- 
duces a magazine about 
Amstrad's bustness comput- 
ers, used a desktop publishing 
system to put together 


PC only hours after its lunch- 
time announcement earlier 
this month. 

A two-page article was 
ready for printing by 4pm — 
almost unheard of for a 
monthly magazine - and it 
then joined the rest of the 94- 
page magazine wailing on the 
presses. Finished copies were 
available at the Personal Com- 
puter World show at Olympia 
the following day. 

Desktop publishing soft- 


ware is also changing the way 
books are produced. A 
Hertfordshire company called 
Prefis has been for the past 
year gaining something of a 
reputation for modernizing 
the book publishing business 
with a software package for 
the IBM PC called The Book 
Machine. 

It allows remote commu- 
nication with typesetting 
equipment, as well as the 
more conventional commu- 
nication with laser-printing 
machines. 

Next week the company is 
due to launch a system that 
will be able to handle pictures 
as well as text using a special 
graphics board plugged into 
IBM PCs or compatibles. It 
will cost about £12,000 includ- 
ing a computer, laser printer, 
video camera and possibly a 
picture scanner which com- 
pares with £5,000 for its text 
only system. 

Last week Electronic Print- 
ing Systems announced 
Jetsetter, a £500 desktop 
publishing program that 
works on Hewlett-Packard’s 
Vectra. and IBM and 
compatibles. 

Corporate newsletters have 


also benefited from the tech- 
nology. The London-based 
Cogmta Software has sold its 
Newswriter software to sev- 
eral major London firms 
which use it to produce news- 
letters and reports. 

Despite all the intense com- 
petition, there is one company 
almost guaranteed to make a 
fortune from desktop publish- 
ing. Adobe Systems makes a 
piece of software called Post- 
script that will feature in 
almost every major desktop 
publishing software package 
for the PC 

Postscript could make the 
California-based Adobe into 
the Microsoft of the desktop 
publishing world. Microsoft 
turned into a blue chip com- 
pany at the heart of the PC 
establishment when its MS- 
DOS operating system be- 
came a standard on which the 
IBM PC and all its look-alike 
computers were based. 

If a computer didn’t run 
MS-DOS. then it wasn’t PC- 
compatible. 

Similarly, all the major laser 
printing systems and new 
photo-typesetters designed to 
work with PCs all use Post- 
script as the way in which the 


needs of the user are commu- 
nicated via the computer to 
the laser printer or typesetting 
machine. 

If someone designs a piece 
of desktop publishing software 
which doesn't use Postscript... 
they may find themselves cut 
off from many of the priming 
systems people would choose 
to use with iL 

Liz Marie Bond, who heads 
the company's marketing op- 
erations, describes Postscript 
as the “strategic glue that’s 
making desktop publishing all 
happen”. She said Adobe is 
now looking at ways of 
broadening how their software 
is used. 

While Postscript can pro- 
vide quite acceptable results 
for desktop publishing pack- 
ages using laser printer tech- 
nology, it still doesn't have the 
depth of character definition 
required for high-quality type- 
setting work. But it is only a 
matter of time.

Why 
major headache 


By Alistair Guild 
The integration of software 
packages is becoming a m^jor 
Headache for many data centre 
managers, according to a sur- 
vey, just published, of more 
than 100 IBM MVS sites in 
five European countries 

.The survey was carried out 
by the research consultancy 
IDC Europa on behalf of the 
American-based company 
Uccel, which claims that 85 
per cent of all American IBM 
MVS data centres already use 
its software. . 

In Britain the figure is 50 
per cent with customers 
including major clearing 
banks, the Stock Exchange, 
large insurance companies 
and British Airways. 

The research, based on 
interviews with managers in 
the UK. West Germany, 
France, Holland and Italy, 
shows that data centre man- 
agers are particularly con- 
cerned about levels of support 
available and their ability to 
provide an acceptable service 
to their customer base. 

Ian Cartwright, the manag- 
ing director of Uccel Software 
Products, said large computer 
systems operate, on average, 
with five different software 
environments made up typi- 
cally of three independent 
suppliers, IBM. and software 
the company has developed 
in-house. 

This involves large amounts 
of training - in some cases 
different terminals are dedi- 
cated to 1 each system — with 
the additional hardware costs. 


“If the present trend in data 
processing operating costs in 
the US continues. w,u 
exceed- the American gross 
national product by the end at 
the century.” claims Mr Cart- 
wright. 

The survey was commis- 
sioned to lest the market in 
Europe for a new software 
package. Synova — which is 
intended to manage the use 
and operation of systems soft- 
ware in the data centre, ir- 
respective of the supplier. 

“Whereas in the past you 
might have required a number 
of terminals each dedicated to 
one piece of software now only 
one will be required. Data 
centres can integrate a variety 
of systems, software tools, and 
packages from different 
suppliers." said Mr 
CartwrighL t ... 

The product is also claimed 
to ensure that security proce- 
dures. which might vary be- 
tween one software seller and 
another, are standardized and 
made more, user friendly. 

As part of the development 
programme. L'ccel set up a 
securiiy sub-commiuee within 
its user group with three 
members, the Bank of Scot- 
land. the Leeds Permanent 
Building Society and Britoil. 

“At present if* someone 
wanted to have access to four 
different types of secured 
information he might have to 
go through four different se- 
curity procedures.” 

With Synova costing a cool 
£50.000 a copy, .the UK 
market could be worth £22 
million said Mr Cartwright. 


Small firms get a hand 
with the figures 

The National Computing 
Centre’s scheme to help busi- 
nesses choose accounting soft- 
ware becomes operational this 
week. It should also help to 
improve the standard of pack- 
ages in a field where where 
more than 2.000 programs are 
available. 

While evaluation is not 
compulsory, the independent 
certificate and motif issued on 
software passing the National 
Computing Centre tests 
should offer a strong market- 
ing advantage to successful 
software companies. 

To set up the tests for the 
packages, the NCC worked 
closely with the Institute of 
Chartered Accountants and 
Customs and Excise .in the 
preparation of the test proce- 
dures, work funded by 
£50.000 from the Department 
of Employment 

“The success or failure of 
computer systems can affect 
the survival of small busi- 
nesses. The DoE was con- 
cerned about the potential job 
losses which could result from 
the wrong decision,” said 
John Andrews, manager of 
NCCs micro systems (centre. 

Some 60 suppliers ex- 
pressed interest in submitting 
their accounting software to 
the test procedure although 
NCC motifs will not be issued 
until March 1 next year, to 
ensure that no supplier has an 
unfair start. 


Suppliers can also buy 
copies of the lest procedures 
giving them the chance to iron 
out any weaknesses before 
submitting packages to the 
NCC for approval. They will 
cost £750 with the DoE receiv- 
ing 7 per cent of the sale 
proceeds. The full evaluation 
of the less complicated pack- 
ages is expected to take about 
four weeks and costs £4,000 — 
a- cost to be born by the 
supplier. 

Individual reports on each 
package will be available to 
suppliers, dealers and poten- 
tial buyers at £15 and will also 
include a rating of packages 
from questionnaires com- 
pleted by existing users. 

“Data can be garbled when 
it's saved or garbled when it's 
primed out Occasionally, 
even reputable suppliers when 
adding an extra feature to a 
package don't take into ac- 
• count the effect that can have 
on the basic software,” said 
Mr Andrews. . 

The NCC is now interested 
in extending the service to 
payroll packages. It has com- 
pleted a preliminary study and 
is waiting for confirmation 
from the Inland Revenue that 
it wishes to proceed. The 
Revenue wants to encourage 
users of computers to use 
payroll packages which pro- 
duce more accurate returns.

A guide to 
career opportunities 



Caring is a job with a future 


For many years residential social work 
was regarded as a poor relation com- 
pared with fieldwork, and as a bit of a 
dead-end as a career. But now there is a 
good career structure for those who start 
with local authorities. 


m(§ft Legal Diwte® 


Opportunities exist to progress not 
only in residential care but within the 
social services in general. 


Five or six years ago it might have 
been unusual for an officer in charge of a 
residential establishment to become a 
director of a local authority social 
services department. Today there are 
several directors whose original base was 
in residential care. One of the most 
recently appointed is David Lane, now 
director of social services at Wakefield. 


Residential care is a 
demanding but fulfilling 
task, reports Joan 
Llewelyn Owens in this 
second of a series on 
finding employment in 
the public sector 


Others will be using the home or hostel 
as a hotel and going out to work each day 
and will need support of a different kind. 


As explained earlier, opportunities 
occur for career progression to senior i 
practitioner, assistant manager and man- 1 
ager of one or more units. An officer in / 
charge of an establishment with perhaps 
60 residents and 25 staff needs consid- 
erable management skills. Some residen- 
tial social workers have training 
responsibilities. Others make the switch 
to fieldwork. 




PRINCIPAL SOLICITOR 


Residential care is provided not only 
by local authorities and the probation 
service but also by national voluntary 
societies, local organizations and 
individuals. 


they feel they can adjust to ordinary life. 

There are hostels and rehabilitation 
centres too for homeless families and for 
parents who need to learn how to care 
properly for their families. Some single 
mothers may be accommodated in 
mother-and-baby homes where they can 
live both before and after the birth. 


It is wise to test your motivation by 
taking a job as a care assistant or house 


parent before applying for a place on a 
course leading to a qualification in social 
work. Besides, the feet that you have this 
experience improves your chances of 
gening a place and being sponsored by an 
employer. 


National policy is to keep children out 
of care if possible and to transfer many 
people in hospitals and residential 
establishments into the care of the 
community. So there is less residential 
provision at present for children, while 
the big area of growth is in the care of the 
elderly who have no family or whose 
relatives cannot cope. 


Although fewer children may be taken 
into care, there is still a need for a 


Useful practical experience can also be 
obtained by young people aged between 
16 and 1 9 on a two-year full-time course

Certificate of Qualification in Social

Anyone contemplating a career in the

establishments are having to deal with 
considerably more frail people than in 


Other children may be cared for on a 
permanent basis, but in many cases care 
is required only, temporarily: perhaps a 
mother is ill or there is some other good 
reason for the parents being unable to 
look after them. 


At present, qualified residential social 
workers either possess the CQSW. which 
is the professional qualification for all 
forms of social work, or the Certificate in 


Major task is to retain 
their independence 


the past and demands on staff can be 
colossal. 


The job is not one of simple physical 
caring. It calls for considerable counsel- 
ling skills and the ability to deal with 
some difficult situations. 

Within one shift a social worker might 
be called on to face a death and the 
sadness it causes among other residents, 
and an admission, which is probably a 
traumatic experience for an elderly 
person who has had to leave her own 
home for strange surroundings. 

People new to the service have to leant 
that one of their major tasks will be to 
maintain the dignity and independence 
orthe people they are caring for. In some 
cases, the more active elderly will be 
living in sheltered housing, with a 
warden to call on in case of need. 

Residential homes and hostds for 
adults include provision for the blind, 
deaf, physically handicapped, mentally 
impaired, mentally ill and for people 
with social handicaps who find it 
difficult to fit into a more normal pattern 
of life. 

Former prisoners and alcoholics may 
go to hostels or “half-way" bouses until 


Some' of these children, unhappily, 
will have been ill-treated by their 
parents, and as a result they may have 
behaviour problems. The job of the 
residential soda! worker with such 
children is very demanding. In a unit for 
adolescent youngsters who may have 
been rejected by their parents, there can 
be actual violence. Sooal workers have 
to learn to handle such situations and to 
provide the support these young people 
need. 


Trainees from widely 
differing backgrounds 


Children who are deaf, blind, phys- 
ically, mentally or emotionally handi- 
capped may go to special boarding 
schools and homes, while those who are 
in trouble with the law or in need of care 
are provided for by community or 
probation homes and hostels. 


In some cases senior members of staff 
live in or on the site and are probably 
given self-contained accommodation. 
However, being a residential social 
worker does not necessarily mean living 
in. though it probably involves some 
sleeping-in duties. 


One cannot generalize about residen- 
tial social work. At times it can entail 
rolling up your sleeves and doing even 
the most menial task. Some residents 
may need to be washed, dressed and fed. 


Social Service (CSS). The CSS is 
designed for a variety of social services 
personnel, other than social workers; 
managerial supervisory and care staff in 
residential and day services. 

Training for the CQSW is open to 
people of widely differing backgrounds. 
For non-graduate courses the minimum 
age is 20 and applicants under 25 must 
have at least five O-levels. CSE Grade 1 
or GCSE, including English. Some 
colleges ask for two A-levels. 

For the CSS, candidates must be IS or 
over and those under 21 need five O- 
levels. CSE Grade 1 or GCSE. 

ft's worth noting that the Council for 
Education and Training in Social Work 
intends to introduce a new single 
qualifying award in social work based on 
the CQSW and the CSS patterns of 
training. Training leading to this new 
award will last at least three years and 
will be introduced in the academic year 
1990-91.

Chris Law: accomplished helmsman 


Heading Britain's challenge 
on the water is Harold 
Cudmore. a 42-year-old Irish- 
man and winner of 10 inter- 
national match-race 

championships, including the 
this year's premier Congres- 
sional Cup — which made him 
the first non-American to win 
the series. 

In an effort to compromise 
the opposing crew before the 
gun fires. Cudmore will have a 
hand on the helm during the 
vital chess-like pre-start 
manoeuvres. JEhit once the 10- 
minute starting sequence is 
complete, he will hand over 10 
Chris Law, the 34-year-old 
helmsman and crew co-or- 
dinator, and assume, instead, 
the role of tactician. 

The task for Law, a former 
Finn Gold Cup champion and 
^ representative for Britain at the 
last four Olympics, is to keep 
White Crusader sailing at maxi- 
. }1 mum speed, while Cudmore 
calls the shots. 

The navigator and sail co- 
"jS ordioator is Eddie Warden 
& Owen, aged 36. A sailmaker 
Irt from Fareham in Hampshire, he 
i4 first made a name for bimseffin 
the GP14 dinghy dass. 

With countless national and 
internationai titles to his credit. 
Warden Owen — who steered 
Indulgence, owned by Graham 
Walker, the syndicate bead, to 
victory in this year’s three-

sup We apologize for any 
bg 81 embarrassment this may have 



recently regularly outpaced. 
“It's unlikely that heavy- 
weather boats will be better at 
match racing in racking and 
turning.** Crebbin says. 

Robert Hopkins, an Ameri- 
can consultant last time to de 
Savary and now working with 
the defeated Denis Conner, 
agrees: “You want your peak 
[huli| to be down the centre 
line or (be average breeze (15- 
20 knots] and make the perfor- 
mance envelope as wide as 
possible**. CrebbiH thinks they 
have achieved this. 

Codmore's other priority 
was to persuade Chris Law, 
ten years younger and his 
main British helming rivaL to 
give up a prosperous career 
and take his chance in the 
campaign: without guarantee. 

“It's a high risk to enlist an 
aggressive stranger." 
Cndmore says. Law was will- 
ing, and spent the Australian 
winter, under Codmore's 
direction, testing Crusader I in 
40- knot winds where two- ton 
toads stretched half-inch steel 
genoa o-boat shackles like 
string. 

“That's where the *people* 
(actor was created." Law says, 
“and the confidence that we're 
going to win it. Only two weeks 
ago was 1 told by Harry that I 
was in. 'It's yon and me', he 
said. If it conies down to match 
racing more than boats, we’ll 
be strong". 

The British have probably 
more collective match racing 
experience and ability than 
any boat other than Conner's: 
nl his boat's ability is un- 
certain. Eddie Warden Owen, 
who forms the after-guard 
with Cndmore and Law, has 
maybe more talent than any 
one, Cndmore says. 

“The British always haw 
the talent, but so rarely the 
ability to use it" Cudmore 
says. “To do that yon have to 
get pride and ego out of the 
way and get to the real issues; 
to have an equality between 
officers and men the way you 
have in the SAS". 


T he analogy is not 
inappropriate. The 
11 men in a 12-metre 
operate in extremes 
of mental and phys- 
ical tension, responding 
simultaneously to instinct, 
experience and complex in- 
struments. Spedding has in 
the briefing room a mock 
stressometer dial, with 
Codmore’s face and an arm 
pointing to a tension gradation 
from Asleep to PTH (plane 
ticket home). 

“We've come along way, bat 
there's far to go. Well leave a 
better idea in December of 
resilience to pressure," 
Spedding says. 

His contributions include 
not only a scientific eye for 
mast balance, weight and 
alignment, but the reduction of 
the work force from de 
Sa vary's 108 to the present 
lean 35, comparable to 
Australia's winning team in 
Newport 

“I’d like to think" be says 
reflectively, “that next Feb- 
ruary we could have an Ashes 
series on water".

Plundering Pirates Dolphins battling to stay afloat Casualties in cup 


While football suffers from a 
dearth ofgoals. there is a danger 
that ice hockey supporters will 
become sated. In 12 Norwich 
Union Cup games at foe week- 
end 239 goals were scored, wifo 
the 20-14 win by Peterborough 
Pirates at Sunderland set ting a 
competition record for aggregate 
goals. 

Spare a thought for Scott 
Mills and Barry Olson, each of 
wham scored 10 . points for 
Sunderland and finished on the 
losing side. Garry Unger scored 
six of the Peterborough goa* 5 
and Todd Bidner three. These 
two will obviously be a fbrce to 
be reckoned with in the first 
division of the Heineken British 
League.

New York (AP) — The Miami 
Dolphins continued to struggle 
in the US National Football 
League on Sunday on a day that 
featured an upset of foe Los 
Angeles Rams, and a scare for 
the New York Giants. 

Dan Marina the millionaire 
quarterback who signed a lu- 
crative. long-term contract ear- 
lier this year, threw four 
interceptions as the Dolphins 
lost 3 1-16 to Saa Francisco. The 
defeat was foe third in four 
games for the Dolphins, their 
worst start since 1969. foe year 
before Don Shula became 
coach. 

The Rams lost 10 unrated 
Philadelphia Eagles, giving 
Buddy Ryan his first victory as a 
head coach. Ron Jaworskfs. the 
quarterback, made three touch- 
down passes, and foe Eagles 
defence managed to stop the 
NFL “rushing" leader. Eric 
Dickerson. 

In lhe New York Giants v 
New Orleans Saints match. Phil 
Simms threw a four-yard touch- 
down pass to foe tight end. Zeke 
MowatL wifo 8min 03sec to 
play as the Giants rallied from a 
1 7-poim first-half deficit to win. 
George Rogers rushed for 1 15 
surds, and two touchdowns to 
fend undefeated Washington to 
victory over foe previously- 


unbeaten Seattle. Rogers' sec- 
ond score, from seven yards out, 
gave Washington a 16-7 lead 
late in foe third quarter. The run 
capped a 74-yard drive. 

A pre Vi 0 usl y-sl uggish Chi- 
cago Bears offence produced its 
most productive performance of 
foe season. The Beam routed the 
Bengals hi a style re mini scent of 
their 1985 Super Bowl season, 
using McMabon's leadership to 
cash in on five interceptions by 
their hard-tackling linebackers 
and defensive secondary. 


Rogers' sec- Tommy Kramer, who was 

en yards out, replaced early in foe second half 
a 16-7 lead after his sixth touchdown, threw

gave die Pittsburg Steel ers their 
victory over Hobsiod Oilers. 

In Denver. Sammy Winder 
and Gerald Willhiic scored 
touchdowns as the Broncos 
smothered New England Patri- 
ots in the second half, rallying 
from 13-3 at half-time. The 
Broncos scored on four of their 
five possessions in foe second 
half. 

Pat Leahy, of foe New York 
Jets, scored four field goals to 
extend his siring of successful 
attempts to 19 in a row. foe 
third-fongest in NFL history, as 
foe Jets beat Indianapolis. They 
survived four turnovers, then 
halted force Indianapolis drives 
in the second half by forcing the 
0-4 Colts to turn foe ball over 
each time. 

Marc Wilson threw two 
louchdown passes in a span of 
41 seconds to take Los Angeles 
Raiders to their first win of the 
season, over San Diego. The 
Raiders, playing without their 
tailback Marcus Allen, won 
despite turning the ball over five 
times. 

Mick Luckhursi's third field 
goal of the game, a 34-yartter 
12min 35sec into overtime 
lifted Atlanta Falcons over 
Tampa Bay Baccaneers. 


The first round of foe Pruden- 
tial National Cup produced its 
share of casualties at foe week- 
end. The elimination of Ren 
Vardy Sander land by foe second 
division side Oldham Celtics 
was one but altogether more 
serious was the fearsome knock 
suffered by Bob Martin of 
HomeS pare Bolton. 

Martin swallowed his tongue 
in foe game at Derby- where but 
for lhe swift intervention of 

Bolton's new American. Rod 
Kittles, his injury could have 
been fetal- Martin, a dual na- 
tional and veteran of foe Na- 
tional League, hit his head on 
the floor and was knocked 
unconscious after felling awk- 
wardly following a charge by Ed 
Coe. Derby's new American. 

The game was held up for 20 
minutes while Martin was 
rushed to the city's Royal 
Infirmary where he was later 
discharged. X-rays having 
shown that there was no damage 
to his jaw or skull. The accident 
.knocked the heart out of Bolton, 
who succumbed 87-82. 

Ati the cup games went to 
form with the exception of that 
at Sunderland, who can also 
blame their 93-85 defeat by 
Oldham on injuries to' their two 
Americans. Jim Brandon is out 
with a ricked back and Greg 


McGray was so troubled by a 
sprained left knee that he was 
used sparingly. 

■“Oldham are a decent side but 
in normal circumstances, even 
without Brandon. 1 would have 
hoped to have beaten them." 
Dave Eldcrkin. the Sunderland 
coach, said. “Having to play 
without Brandon is like Kings- 
ton having to do without Steve 
Bomragcr." 

Never was a inter word said 
with more immaculate liming. 
Bonlrager, who began with a 
flurry of forec-poini shots in lhe 
opening minutes, was foe in- 
spiration behind Kingston's 
106-97 success in overtime at 
Portsmouth, in foe only first 
division game. He finished with 
40 points and Portsmouth, who 
had pulled back a 14-point 
deficit in foe last 17 minutes, 
finished up having five players 
fouled ouu - 

Among them was Tafoam. 
who after sinking two spectacu- 
lar three-pointers in foe lost 
minute to help bring Ports- 
mouth level.' also incurred a 
technical foul for dissent. A 
further technical was incurred 
by Dan Lloyd, the coach, for a 
remark made from the bench by 
Irish after he. too. had been 
fouled out after scoring 32 
points.

Launch 
of new 
ratings 



Nomrood can underline 
strength of classic crop 


service 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


Today The Times lau- 
nches a private handicap 
ratings service, compiled 
by Gerald Hubbard, one 
of the foremost handicap 
experts in the country. 

The ratings, which are 
based on an analysis of 
past form, will be given 
for the two top meetings 
each day and will appear 
immediately after the 
jockeys* names in the 
racecards. 

The top-rated horse, 
the one with the highest 
number, for each race is 
highlighted with a blob. 

The Times private han- 
dicap per's considered top 
rating of the day will 
appear in the selections 
panel. 

Another innovation for 
the main meetings is the 
transfer of the approxi- 
mate starting price odds 
for the leading horses 
from beneath the race to 
the end of each line. 

The list of leading 
coarse specialists has 
been expanded to incinde 
the top six trainers and 
jockeys and is incor- 
porated in the relevant 
programme. 

A guide to our new- 
style racecards can be 
found at the top of the 
Goodwood programme, 
listing the symbols. 


On whai is expected 10 be 
perfect ground. Nomrood is 
taken to win the Foundation 
Stakes at Goodwood today in 
the hands of Richard Quinn, 
who is enjoying such a fine 
season as Paul Cole's first 

jockey. . . , 

Mv selection was in form at 
this stage of the season last 
vear when he won at New- 
market before finishing sec- 
ond in the William Hill 
Futurity at Doncaster. 

Nomrood also began this 
season where he left ofiflasl by 
finishing in the first two in his 
first two races. He started by 
winning the Chester Vase and 
then he put up another fine 
performance at York where he 
was runner-up 10 Shahrastani 
in the Mecca-Dante Stakes at 
York. 

Those performances natu- 
rally led to a crack at the 
Derby in which he ran well up 
to a point, that point being 
two furlongs from home. It is 
logical to assume that 
Nomrood is best suited to 
races around a mile and a 
quarter which happens to be 
die distance of today's race. 

His only subsequent race 
involved a trip to France for 
the Prix Eugene Adam at 
Saint-Cloud midway through 
July. But unfortunately that 
venture turned out to be a 
flop. 

However, following a rest 
Nomrood is now revitalised 
and expected to draw further 
attention to the overall ex- 
cellence of the current classic 
crop by beating his six oppo- 
nents this afternoon. 

Those who have already 
backed Dallas to win 


Saturday's Cambridgeshire 
will be looking to both 
Chinoiserie and Rackstraw to 
provide a pointer. Chinoise- 
rie. who won the Extej Stakes 
over today's course and dis- 
tance at the big meeting, is a 
stable and galloping compan- 
ion of Dallas, while Rackstraw 
just managed to finish in front 
of him when Dallas made his 
long-awaited reappearance at 
Goodwood early this month. 
On that occasion they were 
both put firmly in their place 
by Ininsky. 

Kufuma and Samarid re- 
cently finished second and 
fifth, respectively, behind My 
Generation at Leopardstown 
in Ireland. Now Samarid has a 
61b pull for a length beating. 

No matter how he gets on 
with Kufuma, Pai Eddery can 
take three more strides to 
what looks like being his fifth 
jockeys' championship after 
an eight-year gap by landing a 
treble on Harlestone Lake 
(3.0). Gilbert® (4.30) and Pale- 
face (5.0). 

Of the three, Gtlbertohasby 
far and away the easiest task in 
the Solent Stakes. Last time at 
Doncaster he was unfortunate 
to come up against the highly 
regarded newcomer AjdaL 
who has subsequently been 
installed as favourite for next 
year's 2,OOOGuineas following 
another enormously impres- 
sive win at Ascot last Friday. 
It will be surprising, indeed, if 
Gilbeno has an opponent of 
that calibre this time. 

In contrast, his stable 
companion Harlestone Lake 
has a much tougher task in the 
Ajax Engineering Insurance 


Stakes, run over 2 miles and 3 
furlongs. 

Bui the one thing that John 
Dunlop's filly does not lack is 
cite stamina to succeed over 
this marathon distance. 

Indeed, the way that she ran 
away from Tugboat, who is no 
mean stayer himselC over 2Vi 
miles in Qsiend in August 
suggested to me that she could 
easily be capable of upsetting 
another Cesarewitch hope. 
Withy Bank, not to mention 
the course and distance win- 
ner Accuracy and Actinium. 

As for Paleface, he looks 
precisely the type to benefit 
from the champion elect’s 
drive in the Kinrara Nursery. 

For the day’s best bet. I'm 
relying on So Kind to land the 
nap in the Carlton Maiden 
Fillies' Stakes at Nottingham 
where John Dorey (3.0), Cop- 
per Red (4.0) and Rotuneli 
(5.0) are my other principal 
fancies. 

Having recently run so well 
in the Firth of Gyde Stakes at 
Ayr where she was beaten only 
two lengths by Linda's Magic, 
and that after having anything 
but a good run. So Kind 
should benefit from a drop in 
class in the Carlton Maiden 
Fifties’ Stakes.

But the leading jockey had to

finish. 

Eddery had Native Dress in 
the front rank right from the 
start and seemed to have the

Native Dress was victorious by 
only a neck. 

Native Dress bad run green 
on his debui here a fortnight ago 
and Eddery reported that the 
colt is still rather green and ran 
lazily once be struct the front. 

Native Dress was the 45th 
winner of the season for Ian 
Balding, and this took the 
Kingsctere trainer pas. the 
£2 50,000-mark in winning prize 
money. 

Rotherfidd Greys, medium of 
a morning gamble from 14-1 to 
7-1. made light of top weight in 
the Portsmouth Football club 
Handicap to land a nice touch 

Trained until seven weeks ago 
by Chris BelL who has since 
handed in bis licence. 


Rotherfield Greys was running 
for the first rime for the New- 
market trainer Tony Hide. 

When with Bell. Rotherfield 
Greys had struck up a fine 
partnership with the 71b-daimcr 
Jonathan Leech, who scored his 
first three victories all on this 
horse. Leech must have feared 
losing the mount when the 
gelding changed stables, bur 
Hide decided that as the 18- 
y car-o Id had ridden him so well 
in the past he should keep the 
mount. 

Leech justified the decision by 
producing Rotherfield Greys to 
strike the front just inside the 
final furlong and scored by half a 


favourite for the Mead Woman? 
Jubilee Handicap, had nnl££oej 
behind him as the field turned j 
into the straight and. although , 


he gamely did his hest_to peg ' 
them all back, Aiich N'“ 


length from Bonny Light-. 
■ Doc 


)ocksider. the 100-30 


i'Bee was 

still in from at the post. 

Yesterday's ground was 
appreciably faster than when 

Dockside r won at Chepstow last 
month and a mile on this fast 
course looked a bit short for 
him. 

After Pounelta had set a fast 
pace. Aitch N’Bec and Floating 
Asset came through to dispute 
the lead at the three -furiong 
marker. With Willie Carson in 
his typical hard driving style, 
Aitch N'Bcc gradually asserted* 
himself

Ben ti nek Stakes.

American-bred colt, who was 
fifth in Goodwood's Extel 
Handicap, cruised up to Straw 
Boater at the wo furlong marker 
and quickly mastered die New- 
market filly, who had led prac- 
tically from the start. 

final Try beat Luca Cumani's 
charge by one and a half lengths, 
but did so on a tight rein as the 
pair raced home well clear of 
Soho Sue. 

final Try pulled a back 
musde early in the season, and 
pgravaied the injury in the 
Extel. “So we shall have to wait 
and see how he comes out of this 
race before making any further 
plans . said Mike Heaton-Ellis.

SIS consortium 
land contract 
for satellite 
racing service 

By Michael Seely 


V 


A consortium, in which the 
four ««»»« booJonaldog firms 
have a 45. per cent stake, has 
landed the contract to supply 
televised racing by satellite to 
Britain's 10.000 betting shops. 

Six Peter Leng, the chairman 
of the Racecourse Association, 
which represents die country’s 
59 racecourses, said at a con- 
ference in London yesterday that 
the deal would be worth about 
£20m over a Eve-year period. 

The negotiations have taken a 
year and the competition from 
seven other groops has resulted 
in a fourfold increase in the 
money offered. 

The new company wfll be 
called Satellite Information Ser- 
vices and has been restructured 
from the bookmaker-backed 
Satellite Racing Development. 
The equity structure is as fol- 
lows: RCA 10 per cent. 
Horserace TotaQsator Board 5 
per cent, Bass PLC 10 per cent, 
Great Metropolitan PLC 10 per 
cent, Ladbrokes 15 per cent and 
Sears PLC 10 per cent. 

Bass; Great Metropolitan and 
Sears are the parent companies 
of Corals, Mecca, and William 
Hills, respectively. 

Independent investors are be- 
ing sought for the remaining 40 
per cent iff the shares. Bob 
Green, the chairman of Mecca, 
sa«fc “There are plenty of people 
wanting to come in.” 

Commenting on the new con- 
sortium, Sir Peter Leng said: “It 
is no secret that my board and 
many other sections of the 
racing and betting hidnstries, 
were concerned that such a vital 
communications link as satellite 
TV between the racecourses and 
the off-course betting offices 
should be controlled by the 
major bookmakers. We beBeve 
we have condnded an arrange- 
ment. which protects the long- 
term interests of the racing and 
betting industries in general and 
racecourses in partiariar.” 

Eight groups originally bid for 
the contract which eventually 
led to a weD-pnblidsed battle 
between the bookmakers con- 
sortium. beaded by Mecca's

are naturally disappointed to 
have lost the contract, but we are 
. not taking it lying down. There 
are several options open to ns 
and we have some fretting new 
developments we are presenting 
at next week's Bookmakers* 
Show. 

A chairman and chief exec- 
utive, independent of racing 
interests, wfll he appointed to 
the new company, while the 
RCA win maintain a veto to 
safeguard' all aspects of horse 
racing. 

Racing coverage is expected to 
beam early next year with 
Bristol, Brighton, Edinburgh, 
Colchester. Leeds and Cardiff 
being the first areas to come on 
stream. 

SIS will be paying for the 
installation and charge those 
betting shops who want to take 
the service an annual fee ranging 
from £3300 for a single screen 
to £6300 for the foil 12-screen 
system. 

Starting prices will continue 
to be compiled independently by 
representatives of the Spot -tirng 
Life and Press Association, 
although SIS wiH have their own 
operators providing bet ' 
shows. 

Allaying fears that the present 
arrangements might be threat- 
ened, Green commented: *T 
consider the SP sacrosanct, 
nothing will interfere with the 
present system.” 

The money is expected to be 
used to improve racecourse facil- 
ities and John Sanderson, who 
managed York and Thirsk, wel- 
comed the deaL “I think it will 
transform our finances,” he said. 
“It will give ns more freedom to 
spend and win dearly be felt by 
the middle to low range 
It is thought that 
win receive about 
3 % times more than they do 
from the present commentaries 
fond. This would ' mean tracks 
such as Catierick and Pontefract 
receiving in the region of 
£60,000 a year. Some of the 
bigger trades win benefit to the 
time of over £100,000 per 
annum. 

The extra money received is 
expected to be spent initially on 
improving amenities on race- 
courses. both for the paying 
customers and also for visiting 
stable staff.

High fBen McEnroe wins his semi-final against Edberg 

McEnroe stays on 
leback trail 


San Francisco (Reuter) — 
John McEnroe; the world's 
I5th-ranked player, took an- 
other step on his comeback trail 
today by winning the singles 
title of the San Francisco Grand 
Prix tennis tournament on Sun- 
day. Seeded fourth. McEnroe 
beat his fellow-American, 
Jimmy Connors, seeded second. 
7-6. 8-6. 6-3, winning his second 
consecutive grand prix singles 
title in as many weeks. In the 
semi-final McEnroe had beaten 
Stefan Edbeign 

McEnroe won $44,000 (about 
£30,800), Connors received 
$22,000. The two have now 
played 31 times, with McEnroe 
holding a 19-12 edge. McEnroe 
has won their last 1 0 encounters, 
including their previous final 
encounterwhich occurred at 
Wimbledon in 1984. Connors 
has not won a singles title since 
Tokyo m October 1984. 

The match was a struggle 
from the outset, fought mainly 
from the baseline. Connors hit 
punishing returns and McEnroe 
relied on his wide-angled serve 
to win the key points. Each 
player dropped serve once m the 
first set. before games reached 6- 
6 and the tie-break. McEnroe 
opened the tie-break with a 
double ftuh. but broke back 
immediately with a forehand 
return. Connors led 4-2 before 


McEnroe reeled off four points 
in a row to reach set point 

McEnroe lost the fim set 
point when he hit a forehand 
wide, and the second on a 
blistering cross-court pass from 
Connors. At 6-6, McEnroe put 
an overhead down the line to 
reach set point for the third 
time, and won the tie-break as 
Connors sent a backstroke wide. 

In the second set. three ser- 
vice breaks followed from 1-1. 
but McEnroe got the upper band 
in the next game, surviving a 
break point to lead 4-2. then 
breaking Connors for the match 
at 5-3 after a series of backhand 
errors by Connor. 

“Il was a hard-fought match," 
McEnroe said. “He made me 
work for it. He forced me to play 
belter and better." Connors, 
aged 34. admitted that bis 
rivalry with the 27-year-oki 
McEnroe sparked renewed vig- 
our in his game. 

"It's gening to the point 
where I'm eager and excited 
before I walk out there," Con- 
nors said. "The first set- was 
entertaining and people got to 
see great shots and excitement 
from both sides of the court," 

Commenting on his consec- 
utive tournament victories. 
McEnroe said: "Results like this 
are very heartening. I'm glad 
I've done what I've set out to do.

Hamburger SV. one of West

is negotiating with forward 
Preben Elkjaer, Denmark's 
World Cup star, for a possible 
transfer from Verona, his 
Italian side, a Hamburg news- 
paper reported yesterday. 


Old Reigatians. who left it

moment before Qualifying for 
the second round of the John

warded yesterday with a home 
draw against first-class oppo- 
nents in Exeter, who managed 
a comfortable first-round win 
over Oxford on Saturday. 

Reigatians. whose first sea- 
son in the cup this is. trailed 
KCS Old Boys for most of 
their first-round tie. Advanc- 
ing into injury-time they 
threw caution to the wind and 
managed to work Lent, their 
wing, over in the corner for the 
try that gave them a 10-9 win 
and a place against Exeter.

fitting if the Welsh had been

Crowds and locks 
are thin on ground 


Evans plays again 
for Barbarians 


By David Hands 


The crowd of some 15,000 
who watched a Scotland XV 
defeat the Japanese at 
Murrayfield on Saturday is 
some indication of what En- 
gland may expect when the 
touring side play their final 
match at Twickenham on Octo- 
ber 1 1. The numbers were 
somewhat disappointing for the 
Scottish Rugby Union, even 
though the price of tickets had 
been reduced, since they had 

19.000 for Scotland's most re- 
cent match with Romania and 

1 7.000 for the game against Fiji. 

The lower total is partially 

accounted for by the game 
coming so early in the season, 
when other pursuits occupy the 
mind, and by the Glasgow 
holiday weekend. Nevertheless, 
there is no doubt that some good 
performances in the English half 
of their tour, which begins 
tomorrow against Leicester- 
shire, will help Japan's cause. 

The England XV which win 
play at Twickenham will be 
announced today, following 
Sunday's squad training at Sou- 
hull and the meeting of the 
selectors at Nottingham yes- 
terday. Once again the players 
worked hard under the direction 
ofTom McNab, their condition- 
ing coach, at Solihull with the 


backs in general impressing with 
their increased aihteticism. 

Among the absentees was 
Nigel Redman, the Bath lock, 
who suffered a gastric complaint 
over the weekend and missed 
his club's first defeat of the 
season, against Llanelli. Indeed 
there was a general shortage of 
locks since Dooley was required 
for police duty in Blackpool and 
CoKlough is still concentrating 
on his business interests in 
Cornwall. 

Simon Holliday, the Bath 
centre who left the field with a 
gashed heel against Llanelli, also 
missed training. He had three 
Stitches inserted in the wound 
and will wait to see how it is 
mending before deciding 
whether to make himself avail- 
able for his club on Saturday. 

Three of the four home 
unions have agreed on the ball 
they will be using in this 
season's internationals. En- 
gland. Scotland and Ireland 
have opted for the 'Gilbert 
Barbarian* which certainly won 
the approval of Iwan Tukalo on 
Saturday. The Selkirk wing 
scored four tries against Japan 
and confirmed afterwards how 
well the ball had handled. 


leuan Evans, the Llanelli and 
Wales B wing, has summoned 
up his nerve and accepted 
another invitation to play for 
the Barbarians, in their game 
against Newport next Tuesday 
at Rodney Parade. In his Iasi 
two appearances for the Barbar- 
ians. Evans has suffered injuries 
which have contrived to wreck 
his representative season. 

He will play at centre on this 
occasion in partnership with 
Scon Hastings, one of four new 
Barbarians all of whom are 
Scottish: the others are Sole, the 
Bath prop, and the two back- 
row men. Beattie and Calder. 

In view of England's commit- 
ments later in the week against 
Japan, their representation is 
limited to two players neither of 
whom are in the England squad: 
Simon Smith, the Wasps wing, 
and Harding. Bristol's scrum 
half. It will be another opportu- 
nity for Smith, capped nine 
times in 1 985 and 1986. to press 
his claims for restoratiion to 
England's right wing. 

The Barbarians have not 
made any firm commitment yet 
to two invitations later in the 
season: the New Twihmi 
Barbarians, who visit Britain 
next March, are keen to play 
them and the oiganizers of the

BOWLS 

A chance 
for youth 

By Gordon Allan 

Bowls is a young man's game. 
Twelve years ago the English 
Bowling Association started the 
national under-25 singles 
championship. Next year they 
are launching an under- 16 sin- 
gles event. 

Competitors must be under 
16 before May 1. 1987 and 
belong to a dub affiliated to the 
EBA. According to early es- 
timates there could be an entry 
of between 200 and 300. The 
intention is to organize the 
competition regionally down to 
the last 32. 

John Northcott, a past presi- 
dent of the EBA. is sponsoring 
the event and the semi-finals 
and final will be played on July 
25 and 26 at Ilfracombe. 

There were 88 players under 
16 in the original entry of 902 
for this year's - under 25 
championship.

Kendall’s 

concern 

Howard Kendall, the Everton 
manager, has taken one step 
forward and two steps back 
from his dub's injury front and 
is now on the brink of being 
overwhelmed by the dub’s 
prolonged crisis. Naming the 
only Fl fit players left for 
tonight's second leg of the 
Screen Sport Super Cup final, 
which Liverpool lead 3-1. Ken- 
dall said: “We are down to the 
bare bones in terms of fit 
bodies." 

His delight at Neil Poin ton’s 
successful comeback game in 
the Cental League at the week- 
end was more than tempered by 
the defender, Ian Marshall.

BOXING 




V 


US impressed 
but not yet 
convinced by 
Honeyghan 

By Sriknmar Sen, Boxing Correspondent 


American winner of three LPGA grand slams leaves the taen standing 


.The Americans wen? still 
shaking their heads yesterday 
morning over Lloyd 
Honeyghan’s stunning defeat 
of the man they said was 
pound for pound the best 
. tighter in any division in the 
world — Don Curry, of Forth 
Worth. There seemed to be a 
tendency to think that the 
Hurricane Honeyghan that hit 
Adamic City on Saturday was 
a weak storm. 

They have not yet been able 
to accept the Bermondsey 
boxer as a true undisputed 
world champion, worthy of a 
place next to Marvin Hagler. 
the only other undisputed 
world champion. Curry's busi- 
ness manager, Akhbar 
Muhammad. said: 

“Honeyghan is a good fighter 
but it is hard to measure how 
good when he was fighting the 
ghost of Don Curry." The 
former champion himself 
made no reference to his 
having to shed '211b in three 
weeks but said he would never 
again try to make the welter- 
weight limit and would be 
ba\mg at Jighi-m iddle. 

Irving Rudd, the publicity 
director of Top Rank Inc, who 
promoted the title bout said 
yesterday from New York that 
Top Rank still had options on 
Honeyghan’s next three de- 
fences but the champion had 
still had to prove his credibil- 
ity. implying that Curry was 
not himself after taking off so 
much weight. 

“We knew very little about 
Honeyghan before the fight 
and everyone tended to write 
him off though you can never 
write off a Mickey Duff 
fighter. But still it has all been 
so sudden and stunning that it 
has thrown all future matches 
into a cocked hat. We shall put 
up a couple of suggestions but 
it is up to Duff to approve. 
Rudd said that Top Rank 


were prepared to put the 
defences on in London or the 
United States. 

Now that Honeyghan owns 
the World Boxing Associ- 
ation, World Boxing Council 
and International Boxing 
Federation titles, he can de- 
fend one or both or an three. 
But since the United States do 
not seem to have been bowled 
over by Honeyghan it is most 
likely that the next defence 
will be in London in Decem- 
ber against Johnny Bmnphus, 
the former world light-welter- 
weight champion. 

With Mickey Duff, the mas- 
ter of matchmaking, he is in 
good hands, but Honeyghan’s 
main problem is to find an 
opponent that will generate 
interest and money quickly. 

The only name to excite 
Americans and generate big 
money is the highly talented 
Mark Breland, the Olympic 
gold medal winner. 

There have been reports of 
Colin Jones, of Wales, 
challenging Honeyghan but 
that match is unlikely to come 
off because Jones has not 
boxed for two years and is not 
in the rankings. Besides, 
Frank Warren, who promotes 
Jones, and Mickey Duff do 
not get on too well and Duff is 
unlikely to do Warren any 
favours by letting Jones stick 
one of those Gorseinon left 
books on Honeyghan just yet. 

Whatever the ins and outs 
of promotional politics, 
Honeyghan's success has en- 
couraged aspiring youngsters 
in Britain. Only yesterday 
George Collins, the unbeaten 
1 9-year-old welterweight, was 
saying: “If Honeyghan can do 
it so can 1. 1 aim to be world 
champion by the time I am 
21." Collins has his first 10- 
rounder on October 9 at 
Fairfield Hall, Croydon where 
boxing returns alter 18 years. 



Bradley tiptoes 
towards 




Fat Bradley: severe concentration is the secret of her success 


Pat Bradley is a careful person. She 
speaks carefally, plays golf carefully 
and is carefally amassing more money 
than any other woman has managed in a 
single season’s golL 

The New Englander has won more 
money than Severiano Ballesteros has in 
Europe; more money than Bernhard 
Longer — who is plundering both the 
European and US tours; and more than 
Gary Player — whose winnings on the 
senior tour are coveted by many a 
pension fund. 

Only Greg Norman, the Open cham- 
pion, and Bob Tway, the US PGA 
champion, are sore of oat-earning Miss 
Bradley and even they have to give best 
to her in one important respect - she 
has won three major titles this year, they 
have had to settle for one apiece. 

Only die US Open — third in 
chronological line of the grand slam 
tides on the women’s toar in America — 
proved immune to Mi ss Bradley’s 

Emotional strain 
of grand slam 

doctrine of hard work, determination 
and perseverance. She finished fifth, a 
victim perhaps of what she calls die 
“media hype" surrounding a grand slam 
attempt. 

Renowned for her intense concentra- 
tion, she is nonetheless adamant: 
“There is no way yon can dose out die 
hype. When (be grand slam is bnUing, 
no-one win let yon not think about it 
The emotional strain is intense." 

The week after winning her second 
major of the season — the Ladies' PGA 
championship, which she had never won 
before — there was an unnsval occur- 
rence — Miss Bradley missed the cut 
Miss Bradley does not miss cuts. Her 
consistency is legendary. In the nine 
years prior to this year’s McDonald's 
championship she had pack e d her bags 
after 36 botes on only two occasions. 

Her explanation for the aberration 
reveals bow pressure affects even the 
most experienced and hattle-hardened 
campaigners. She confesses: “I honestly 
did not realize how much winning the 
LPGA took out of me, emotionally and 
physically." 

Miss Bradley describes herself as a 
shy, resaved and very emotional person. 
Learning to pursue what is a very pnbtic 
career in a very self-controlled sport 
cannot have been easy for her hid she 


has succeeded to such an extent Ihj* s she 
always seems to be in control bo 

rein on her emotions while she is oa tom 

and admits: “1 am very, very 
bet even in just crossing the street i m 
extremely serious in my actions- JMaunk 
I'm very professional in what 1 “J 
that is important to me, to o® pro - 
fessional at all times."

own style - sincere, 
emotional — for sponsors and [Kress. rue 
flat New England accent hel P*. keep 
things low key — there is none of the re- 
laxed Norman banter about her. 

On the course, the barricades stay 
iwumgd- She says tittle to her partners, 
a bit more to Jerey Woodard., her 

— a friend and confidant for the last four 
years. She pulls the white visor down 
over her eyes, chews solidly on her piece 
of gum — only one per five hour round — 
and puffs at the odd cigarette. 

A professional is at work. Do not 
disturb. *, 

Miss Bradley's guard stays iP 
cause as she says: “I'm tore nip 
business." And pretty lucrriye busMfcss 
it is. too. She has eafcged nfeany 
$500,000 so for this season and in the 
process became the first woman to earn 
more than $2 million on die tear. 

Ironically, she went over the mark 
with one of her poorer performances of 
the season, picking up the "accessary 
small change — jnst over $3,000 —by ty- 
ing 1 1th in the Chrysler Plymouth 
Classic in May. She is now harrying 
towards S3 million, baring won five 
tides so far this season. That takes her 
career total to 21, including six majors. 

Prom 1978 Miss Bradley has always 
earned over $100,000 a season. In 1983 

— when she won four tournaments — she 
locked up nearly $250,000 in prize 
money and more amazingly did the same 
the next year — without winning a single 
tournament. 

Her consistency is a byword on die 
tour and has been for the last ten years. 
Only once in that period has she 
finished outside the top eight at the end 
of the season— in 1982 she was eleventh 
on the money list. 

That was a very quiet year in her 
home town of Westfora. Mbs Bradley's 
parents spent the golf season rocking 
silently on the back porch and the 
‘ neighbours on Main Street did not need 


million 

their ear plugs. Tradition has it that 
every time Pat wins, her parents ring a 
bell to let everyone know ail's well AH 
was not so good in 1982 and 1 984 was lu- 
crative tot Quiet _ „ 

Characteristically, Miss Bradley 
says: “My consistency derives from a lot 

of hard work, determination, persever- 
ance and a desire in do the tost 1 can 
Like many golfers Miss Bradley has 
her superstitions — she swears by white/ 
tees and will not use a No 4 ball. But she 
is fond of thecokwr red, “Red is a power 1

Rain drives Test 
into record book 




From Richard Streeton, Delhi 


A Sian was finally possible 
after ica yesterday on the fourth 
day of the rain-delayed second 
Test match here. Australia won 
the toss and scored 58 for the 
loss of Marsh in the 90 minutes 
of play. The pilch, endlessly 
rolled, resembled plasticine. 
Nothing untoward occurred nor 
is ii expected to before the game 
is formally completed today. 

It was another overcast, hu- 
mid morning and four 
successive inspections tested the 
patience of any Job or his local 
equivalent, before the sun 
emerged in early afternoon. By 
then the square, though soft, was 
playable and nobody could find 
an excuse for not starting. As 
soon as Kapil Dev delivered the 
first ball, it resolved much 
speculation about whether the 
local association would collect 
£140.000 insurance money for 
an abandoned game. 

A minor curiosity of the sort 
that could only happen in India 
arose before play started. The 
Indian Board of Control held 
their annual meeting and elec- 
tions in Madras at the weekend. 
It meant that a different selec- 
tion committee finally chose 
India's team from the one which 
named the 15 asked to be 
present. 

Hanumant Singh has now 
succeeded Chandu Bordc as 
chairman of selectors. To make 
way for Vcngsarkar's return to 
the’ side. Hanumant and his 
helpers omitted the first-choice 
wicketkeeper. More. Pandit, his 
deputy in England last summer, 
who played as a batsman in the 
lied Test, keeps wicket. The 
Australians included Gilbert, 
another fast bowler, for Reid, 
who has a stomach upset 

Inevitably the match began in 


an unreal atmosphere, with the 
ground almost deserted. There 
were around 200 spectators 
huddled out of the sun under 
canvas roofing on the popular 
side. Otherwise the stands were 
empty and policemen out- 
numbered everyone else. 
Twenty-two overs were sched- 
uled and India actually man- 
aged 23. with all three spinners 
being used. 

Both Kapil and Shanna. 
helped by the humidity, swung 
the ball occasionally but neither 
they nor the slow bowlers got 
any help from the wicket. Marsh 
edged one four off Sbarma and 
seldom looked completely at 
ease. After an hour Shanna, who 
had changed ends, had Marsh 
well taken right handed and low 
by the wicketkeeper when he 
edged a ball leaving him.

Boon: looked confident 


Boon cut and drove five lours 
and always looked far more 
confidenL He was fortunate in 
the day's final over, though, 
when bis fifth ball, against the 
left arm spinner Maninder 
Singh, was cut through Pandit's 
gloves. 

.All told it was hardly stirring 
stuff, but the occasion will have 
its own little niche in the history 
books. The delayed start total- 
ling three days four hours was 
the longest for any Test. Since 
five-day Tests became the norm, 
only two previous matches have 
failed to start until the fourth 
day: England v Pakistan at 
Lord's in 19S4 which began at 
3.45 with nearly three hours left 
or the fourth day: and Australia 
v England at Sydney in 1954-55 
which got underway at 2 pm. 

Meanwhile, the chances of an 
extra Test match being included 
in a rejigged itinerary for die 

Australians receded a little yes- 
terday when it was learned that 
there was no suitable flight 
home for the touring team if 
they deferred their departure for 
24 hours. An announcement is 
to be made today.

SWIMMING 

Croft is set 
to return 
next month 

By a Correspondent 

June Croft, aged 23. Britain's 
No. I sprint swimmer until she 
retired from competition foll- 
owing the Los Angeles Olympics 
two years ago, looks certain to 
be returning to racing action at 
the Yorkshire Bank Open Inter- 
nationa] Gala at Darlington, 
from October 31 to November 
1. 

In specially arranged official 
lime tnals during the weekend — 
the Lancashire Age Group 
championships at Horwich — 
Miss Croft swam creditable 
times of 21 J sec for 50 metres, 
on the way to 57.7sec for 100 
metres freestyle. After a short 
rest, she was in the water again 
to swim 200 metres in 2min 
05sec Her 100 metres time 
would have won this year's 
National Short Course 
championship. 

Miss Croft’s trials times have 
been ratified by Dr Ian Gibbs, 
president of the Lancashire 
ASA. and submitted for consid- 
eration for her to fill one of the 
spare places during the GB 
versus US match at the Darling- 
ton Olympic pool over two 
days. 

Miss Croft has been misting 
the excitement of competition 
since her retirement, and is now 
back in full training with two 
sessions a day. and says she 
wants to continue right through 
to the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. 
This is welcome news, because 
due to lack of top-class women 
freestyle sprinters available. 
Britain did not enter a team for 
the 4 x 100m relay at this 
summer's world championships 
in Madrid. 


ATHLETICS 


Poles stop Berlin 
going to the wall 

From Michael Coleman, West Berlin 


The Berlin marathon may lag 
behind those in Chicago and 
New York as far as cash 
incentives to the top runners are 
concerned, but whatever the 
outcome of the forthcoming 
races in the American cities, 
they will hardly be able to rival 
this one for its odd result and 
drama worthy of a champion- 
ship. 

The quality of Sunday’s turn- 
out showed that the magnet to 
Berlin is not as strong, but at 
least the day was saved by the 
Poles, who finished in five of the 
first 15 places and nine of the 
first 30. 

The race director, Horst 
Milde, had scoured Europe for 
athletes capable of docking 2 hr 
1 0m in or better in order to hoist 
Berlin's profile. The mass 
panidpation of 1 4,000 ninners, 
of whom 1,000 were British, and 
its well-earned reputation as the 
“friendly one", was not enough 
to put Bolin into the top bracket 
however. This isolated, divided 
city celebrates its 750th anniver- 
sary next year and this together 
with its grandeur and the emo- 
tional impact of the route along 
which the marathon race pro- 
gresses. has been fuelling 
dreams of malting it The Race. 

But air tickets, five-star hotels 
and generous prizes are not 
sufficient to draw the names 
these days: the vital question is 
now how much is “up front", 
bow much will be actually on 
the table on arrival. The spirit 
that inspired the likes of Owens, 
Iso-Hollo. Lovelock. Son. John- 
son and Whitlock, whose names 
are chiselled into the granite 
columns at the Olympic Sta- 
dium, now seems 50 years out of 
date. 


To the Berliners' surprise, 
though, and eventual relief the 
Poles sent over a golden hoard 
of runners who invaded the city, 
most of them -penniless in 
Western cash terms. Fioir 
among them, emerged the un- 
known Boguslaw Psujek, a 
10,000 metre track runner until 
now. 

Psujek's time of 2hr 11 min 
03sec. which beat the course 
best time of 2=1 1.43 set last year 
byJrmmy Ashworth of Britain, 
earned him a Dm 10,000 first 
prize plus an extra Dm 5,000 for 
the record. In all, it came to 
about £5.000, which is a year’s 
salary for him. The women's 
winner, Charlotte Teske of West 
Germany, also set a course 
record, of 232.1Q. forcing into 
second place last year’s winner, 
Magda llands offidgium, whose 
2:33.13 was a personal best. 

The race was marred only by 
the fatal collapse 15 minutes 
from the line of a 2hr 50min 
Berliner who had run too am- 
bitiously after recovering from a 
heart complaint Although good 
ammunition for the anti-fit 
brigade, “he might just as easily 
have died watching TV" ob- 
served Dr Ron Kirieham, 
consultant anaesthetist and 
director of the intensive care 
unit at St James’ Hospital, 
Dublin, who ran the race 
himself.

HOCKEY 

England in 
selection 
dilemma 

By Sydney Friskin 

England can expea a testing 
match against Australia at Pick- 
ens Lock today in preparation 
for the World Cup tournament 
starting at Willesden next Sat- 
urday. 

Although injuries might 
tempt England not to field their 
strongest eleven, defeat would 
not do the team's morale much 
good. Stephen Batchelor did not 
play for England against Canada 
on Sunday and Clift went off in 
the second half anxious not to 
aggravate an earlier groin injury. 

Australia have banked on 
experience in selecting their 
squad. Cbariesworth. who has 
led them in more than 100 
international matches, has him- 
self been plagued by injury in 
the past two years; but they look 
strong in all departments. 

England will need to change 
their tactics because their oppo- 
nents thrive on their midfield 
creative ability. Against Canada, 
England attacked mainly from 
quick breaks along the flanks 
which though effective seem 
unlikely to pay rich dividends 
against the experience of Austra- 
lia. 

The match could resolve itself 
into a battle of short comer 
experts. The system has been 
working well for England with 
Leman doing the stopping and 
Barber the striking. 

The Netherlands, who are in 
England’s World Cup group, 
won a three nations tournament 
at Laren on Sunday, playing 
host to Argentina and Spain. 
The Soviet Union, who had 
agreed to play, changed their 
minds ot> realizing that their 
opening World Cup match on 
Saturday is against the Dutch. 


FOOTBALL 


Real go to the top but not without a struggle 


Real Madrid, the European 
Cup's oldest campaigners, will 
have to raise their game in 
tomorrow’s first round second 
teg tie against Young Boys of 
Berne, after a disappointing 1-0 
home win against lowly Real 
Soriadad in the Spanish League 
at the weekend. 

Winners of the Cup six times. 
Real are J-0 down to the Swiss 
champions after the first leg in 
Berne. But they have the 
consolation of knowing their 
opponents arc also struggling to 
find their form. At home to 
Ve»ey at the weekend. Young 
Boys led 2-1 until five minutes 
before the end. when com- 
placency gave the visitors the 
equalizer. 

In the league. Real's victory 
look them one point above 
Barcelona, who extracted a 2-2 
draw from their trip to Athletic 
Bilbao. Gary Lineker, the En- 
gland forward, returned to form, 
scoring one goal and setting up 
the other. Meanwhile. Real 
Zaragoza. Spain's repre- 
sentatives in the Cup Winners' 
Cup. will go into their match 
against Roma with confidence 
boosted by their first away win 
of the season — a 2-1 victory 
against Real Murcia. Roma won 
the first leg 2-0. 

Roma's warm-up for the 
game consisted of a drab OO 
draw against Verona, one of four 
goalless draws in eight Italian 
first division garner. Only seven 
goals were scored — one more 
than the record low — as the 


defences kept an iron grip on 
affairs. Jurenfus did no more 
than was necessary, a 1-0 away 
win at Empoli stretching their 
lead at the top of the league to 
two points. 

The league champions have 


ya to concede a goal this season 
and are unlikely to break the 
habit in their European Cup 
match against Valor, of Iceland. 
Juvcntus won the first leg 7-0. 

• ZURICH: The Swiss 
League's first and second di- 


visions are to be reduced from. 
J 6 teams to 12 from next season 
(Reuter reports). The league's 
general assembly has accepted a 
proposal to reduce the size of the 
top two divisions in an attempt 
to increase gates.

ASIAN GAMES 


South Koreans lay 
reputations bare 


Seoul (Reuter) — South Ko- 
rea continued to be masterful 
hosts of the Asian Gaines 
yesterday as they upset the 
traditionally powerful nations of 
Pakistan and China in hockey 
and badminton to win the gold 
medals. 

Pakistan, toe Olympic cham- 
pions, who had felled to win the 
men's hockey title just once in 
the last seven Asian Games, 
were unable to withstand the 
aggressive barrage of the South 
Koreans on their normally wa- 
ter-tight defence and went down 
3-1 as Han Jong-Ryul scored the 
decisive goaL India took the 
bronze medal with a 4-1 victory 
over Malaysia. 

Just how well the South 
Koreans are preparing them- 
selves for the 1988 Olympics, 
which they are to host, was 
evident in the badminton hall as 
they stunned the Chinese, hold- 
ers of the Thomas Cup, by 
carrying off the team gold medal 
after a 3-0 white-wash 

China's players stormed off 
court after the defeat. The 
Chinese claimed the line calls 
favoured the Koreans and the 
medal ceremony was delayed by 
90 minutes until Games officials 
over-ruled their complaints. 
Indonesia and India both re- 
ceived bronze medals, but at 
least China had some compen- 
sation when they white- washed 
Japan to win the women's event. 

China also caused a major 
row in table tennis, where their 
players swept into all five 
individual finals. Xu Sbaofa, tbe 
coach, stunned a 5.000 capacity 
crowd when be ordered Teng Yt 
and Dai Lili, his mixed doubles 
pair, to sop playing because he 
disagreed with Mohammed 
Amin, the Palestinian umpire. 
Games officials changed tbe 


umpire and the Chinese beat 
their South Korean opponents 
in straight sets. 

That was only a minor set- 
back for South Korea as their 
celebrations intensified when 
Kim Jin-ho produced the first 
world record of tbe Games - 
shooting 673 points in the 60m 
double archery event. Kim went 
two points dear of the world 
best set by Ivan Soldatova, of 
the Soviet Union, last year. 

Hwang Woo-Won gave Souih 
Korea ftirther success in ihe 
weightlifting as he hoisted an 
Asian record 360kg in the 100kg 
division. The former record of 
355kg was also beaten by Gu 
Yining. of China, who lifted 
357.5kg to win the silver medal. 

China however took the first 
three gold medals in athletics — 
the 20km walk, the women's 
javelin and long jump, but failed 
in the only event to contain a 
world dass line-up, the men's 
10,000ra. Masanari Sbintaku. of 
Japan, won the gold medal after 
fighting off a strong challenge by 
Kim Jonp-Yoon. of South Ko-.^ 
rea to win a Games record ol'V’

TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 30 1986 


i 1 


Luton backed by 
Croker in their 
row with League 


the TIMES 


SPORT 



Ted Croker, the secretary of 
tne Football Association, has 
voiced, in a letter to John 
Smith. Luton Town’s exec- 
utive director, his complete 
support of the club’s con- 
troversial decision not to al- 
low visiting supporters to any 
of their matches at Kenilworth 
Road. 

The Times learnt yesterday 
that Mr Croker wrote Mr 
Smith in July a personal letter 
in which he slated: “I am 
totally in favour of your 
membership scheme”. This 
fallowed the ruling of the new 
Football League management 
committee in May that Luton 
allow visiting clubs in the 
Liulewoods Cup a share of the 
tickets. 

Officially the FA have re- 
fused to offer a view on 
Luton's scheme other than lo 
say that they were •‘flexible” 
with regard to the matter. 
They meet next Wednesday to 
decide on whether they will 
allow Luton to operate their 
ban in FA Cup ties. By then 
they will know the decision of 
the other 9 1 League chairmen 
who on Monday will hear 
Luton's “appeal” as put to 
them by the Luton chairman. 
David Evans. 

Glen Kinon. the FA press 
officer, said yesterday: “The 
Football .Association has re- 
fused yet to express an opin- 
ion. It applauds the 
motivation behind Luton's 
decision but it wishes to study 
the matter before expressing a 
view on the effectiveness or 
desirability of Luton's plan.” 

Last week the League’s 
management committee 
voted to expel them from the 
Liuicwoods Cup because their 
refusal to admit supporters of 
Cardiff City, the visiting dub. 
in their second round lie. was 
contrary to the rules of the 


By Clive White 

competition. Up to 25 percent 
of tickets must be made 
available to each visiting dub. 
Luton have said that if they 
are permitted to play in the 
competition this season under 
their conditions then selected 
away supporters will be admit- 
ted at Kenilworth Road for 
next year’s competition. 

The FA have made 
favourable noises about 
Luton's revolutionary scheme 
and Mr Croker is believed to 
have reminded Luton only 
recently of his unofficial sup- 
port. When Luton played 
Arsenal on September 13. Sir 
James Starriru the FA’s ad- 
viser on crowd control and a 
former police officer, attended 
the match as did Lionel Smart 
and Ernie Brown, the chair- 
man and vice-chairman of the 
Challenge Cup Committee. 
The Department of the 
Environ menu presumably at 
the instigation of the Prime 
Minister, also paid a visit and 
were believed to be suitably 
impressed. 


pay the opposing dub some 
compensation. “We would 
have been sympathetic to that 
idea." Mr Smith said yes- 
terday. On May 23 that de- 
cision was overturned by the 
new management committee, 
of which, ironically, Mr Smith 
is a member. 

Mr Smith said that his 
dub's conflict with the Leagi 
would not interfere with his 
position on the management 
committee. “Whatever the 
outcome on Monday my ten- 
ure on the committee is for 
two years and Til be continu- 
ing. I feel I have a lot to offer 
and I want to be in there 
battling for footbalL It is sad 
there has been this hiccup with 
the management committee. 
We have pm in a log of hard 
work over the post few months 
and a lot of things we have 
done will benefit football over 
the next few years. We have 
differences of view all the 
lime, but that's democracy. 
It's just that in the case of 
Luton, I'm the only one who 


The Government believe doesn't agree,” he said. 


that the club have taken an 
imaginative stand against 
hooliganism and it was at the 
behest of Dick Tracey, the 
Minister for Sport, that Luton 
met the League management 


Luton, who have been ac- 
cused of political expediency 
and forcing their views upon 
others, are now anxious to 
move back from the spotlight 
for a few days and allow their 


committee last Friday to see if opinions to sink in with the 
another solution could be League chairmen. The pres- 


arrived aL Ii was then dedded 
that the 92 chairmen should 
have the final say. Luton will

ment of the Environment

case.

Scholar feels young support-

stand side-by-side on the ter- 
races and has written to David 
Evans, his opposite number at 
Luton, inviting all Junior 
Hauers (Luton's under-16 
supporters club) and their 
families to watch Saturday's 
first division match from the 
Junior Spurs family area. 

“While I admire Luton’s

Colclough 
delays 
his return 

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspodent 

Maurice Colclough, 
England’s senior forward 
throughout the last inter- 
national season who took over 
the captaincy of his country 
during the match against 
France in March when Nigel 
Melville went off injured, will 
not be included in the England 
XV to play Japan which will 
be named today. 

Colclough has not yet 
started the season with Swan- 
sea because of the demands 
bis business interests arc mak- 
ing U]»n him. Moreover, his 
wife is expecting their first 
child so his return to rugby 
will be somewhat delayed. 

However he has indicated 
to Michael Weston, the chair- 
man of selectors, that be 
wishes to be considered this 
season, both for the inter- 
national championship which 
begins in January and for the 
world cup in Australasia. For 
his part Weston jmay be loathe 
to be without the vast .experi- 
ence which Colclough. now 
33, may bring to his squad. 

Colclough ended last season 
with 25 caps and two British 
Lions tours behind him and 
there was no doubting his 
commitment in all England's 
matches. His position was 
discussed by the England 
selectors when they met last 
night: they are not so well 
blessed for lock forwards that 
they can afford to discard hkm 
completelq. even if they can- 
not consider him in the im- 
mediate future.

Higgins may face 
further action 

By a Special Correspondent 

Alex Higgins, fined £2.000 champion, Dennis Taylor, 


last week by the World Pro- 
fessional Billiards and 
Snooker Association for bring- 
ing the game into disrepute; 
may face further disciplinary 
action following an outburst 
in Glasgow ten days ago. 

After losing 9-8 to Cliff 
Thorburn, the Canadian for- 
mer world champion, in the 
final of the Langs Supreme 
Scottish Masters, Higgins al- 
leged his opponent had taken 
drugs in the past without being 
penalized. At the after-match 
celebrations, the controversial 
Irishman is said to have 
complained that Kirk Stevens 
had been penalized for taking 
drugs, while Thorburn had 
been doing the same, but had 
gone free. 

Robert Windsor, 
Thorbum's manager, said last 
night: “We have lodged a 
complaint with the WPBSA 
and intend to seek their 
guidance in the matter. Dur- 
ing the last 21 months that 1 
have been Cliffs manager, he 
has perhaps won more titles 
than any other player. 

“He now lives here with his 
wife and two young sons and 
takes his life and his work very 
seriously. He is obviously very 
upset I have also spoken to 
my solicitors regarding the 
possibility of private action.” 

Paul Hatherell. a spokes- 
man for the WPBSA, said: 
“The letter of complaint has 


suffered the indignity of a 5-0 
defeat in the fifth round 
yesterday — only the second 
whitewash of his career. 

He was beaten by Sifvino 
Francisco, who tonight meets 
his nephew, Peter Francisco, 
for a place in the semi-finals. 
The South African said: “1 am 
looking forward to the match. 
I've only met Peter once 
before and that was two 
months ago when I beat him 
8-3 in the South African 
championship at Johannes- 
burg. The game was closer 
than the scorefine suggests, 
with many frames being won 
on pink and black.” 

Taylor, a semi-finalist at 
Stoke last year and ranked 
No. 3 in the world, has shed at 
least half a stone during the 
summer months. He said: 
“I'm feeling better than for 
ages. It was an amazing game. 

I only missed a couple ofshots 
and lost I think the turning 
point was when I fouled on the 
brown in the first frame.” 

Festival harmony 

An anti-row which threatened 
Gloucester's annual cricket 
festival has been resolved. The 
city council refused to allow the 
county dub to advertise South 
African Airways at the Wingei 
sports ground and the dub, 
resolved hot to give in to 
'political interference’, planned 


his year hi office at 830am 
with half an hoar's real tennis 
at — inevitably — Lord's. He 
intends to get in shape. Presi- 
dency of MCC is an arduous 
task in any normal year, hot 
next summer tire dub cele- 
brates its bicentenary. No 
former cricketer Is better 
known or more adept at public 
relations than Cowdrey. He 
knows, though, that now there 
is more to the presidency. 

Many will look to MCC in 
their bicentenary year to up- 
hold their role as guardians of 
the game. The Spring Ball on 
the ground itself, the dinners 
in the Long Room, the banquet 
at GnOdhall on the eve of the 
special fixture in August be- 
tween MCC and Rest of the 
World, tbe commemoration of 
MCOs first match, a gainst 
Essex in 1787, are the celebra- 
tions of tire game's most 
famous dub. Yet the glitter 
will not obscure the conten- 
tions issues. 

“No one can be happy with 
an arena the size of Lord's left 
empty for seven months of tbe 
year. Although meetings are 
held there every day and the 
cricket school is packed out 
anti) next spring, the ground is 
probably only rail for six days 
of the year. That is 
disturbing,” Cowdrey said. 

“Our priority is to upgrade 
tbe ground so that by the year 
2000 we will have brought 
Lord’s up to date and to a 
standard. The proudest thing 
we have done so far is to 
embark on a new Momd 
Stand, which would have been 
impossible without Paul 
Getty’s £2m gift. I want to see 
Lord's retain its special at- 
mosphere and be unspoilt,” he 
said.

From a Press point of view, 
the Norwich Union's dis-

as their profile at Nottingham 
was so low as to be almost 
indiscernible. 

The Council dedded to 
introduce an individual racing 
licence for all oaremen and 
women competing in regattas. 
The scheme, to replace the 
present regatta levy, is to 
become operational in April 

1987. The licence is likely to 
be between £5 and £10 per 
competitor, according to their 
status. 

The Council delaved a de- 
cision on the wider issue ol

Association until the (987

that they will either have to
