Losses on share transactions can generally only he used to reduce capital gains tax liability. So the maximum tax savings wiH be 30 per cent of the amount of the loss. But the Finance Act provides for orb Case in which a taxpayer can opt to set a capital loss against income rather than gains, thereby reducing his in- come tax bill at has marginal rate of up to 60 per- cent. This special relief is available only where the shares on which the loss has been Incurred are not quoted on the Stock Exchange.

There is a further condition. The investor must have acquired his shares from the company itself rather than from a third party. The snag with Acorn is the way in which the offer for sale was structured. All the new shares were subscribed for by Its merchant bankers, Lazar d Brothers, and then sold on to the public by Lazards. This means that investors were tech- nically buying shares from Lazards rather than from Acorn itself.

On a strict interpreta- tion the relief is not available — and that is apparently the view of the Inland Revenue. As in a normal CGT case, the shares must either have been sold or else declared of negli- gible value see below. A claim for relief must be made within 2 years of the 'tax year in which the loss arises. After that the loss will be available only for offsetting against a capital gains tax bill. Even if your losses are not within this privileged category you may still be able to put them to good use. Whatever the tax planning considerations, an investor will often be unwilling to cash in a loss, clinging fervently, if unrealistically, to recovery hopes.

The Capital Gains Tax Act pro-: If, for whatever reason;-: The opportunities to use these privileges in year-end tax plan- ning have expanded dramati- cally over the past two years. Last week's article and deci- sion tree suggested that savings through a pension plan would be a sound investment for almost every taxpayer. Publicity and Government action have opened, up many more oppor- tunities for the individual employee and the self-employed to start up and adjust pension contributions.

If you are self-employed or employed but not in an occupa- tional pension scheme, you can contribute a maximum of The right to carry back relief over six years is the biggest advantage that pension contri- butions have over the Business Expansion Scheme. This allows full tax relief on an investment in most unquoted companies but involves much higher risks than pension contributions. The biggest disadvantage of using a pension as a tax efficient method of investment Is that you will probably have to leave your money tied up until you retire.

A loan-back through the com- pany which has organised your pension plan is easiest to obtain through an Insurance company,. This could cover most of your contributions for this year. The only major constraint is that you cannot use your pen- sion. But be careful not to end up paying excessively high rates- of. But if you have cash available, most pension schemes allow em- ployees to enhance their pen- sion rights by making Additional Voluntary Contribu- tions.

BUt note that the Inland Revenue allows employees to contribute a maximum of only 15 per cent of their earnings each year into an occupational scheme. More seriously, some extra contributions could be wasted if you have invested more In your pension plan than is neces- sary to fund the maximum per- missible pension — normally two-thirds of final salary.

Tens of thousands of expatriates around the world already benefit from this magazine — ask yourself if you can afford not to join them. We Can Make Make At this time of change in the Financial Markets, this could be an 1 appropmte opportunity for you to review your own financial strategy: Investors in low-yielding gilt unit trusts such as the Abbey Capital Reserve trust will be affected.

Their methods of con- verting income into lightly taxed capital gains, by selling gilts before the dividend is due, are the specific 1 target of the new rules. The basic rate taxpayers who invested substantial sums in one of the dividend stripping gilt Or local authority bond schemes managed by Barlow Clowes or Poiolon York, will also find such investments less profit- able. But the greatest immediate damage will be suffered by those who invested directly as Individuals in the short-dated gilt market for specific pur- poses.

If you wished to tic up your money for less than six months, the most attractive option was to buy a short-dated gilt on which a dividend had recently been paid. You could then sell it within six months, before the next dividend was due. By then, the price of the gilt should have risen above your purchase price in anticipation of the dividend pay-out But by taking the return in the form oF capital gains rather than income, you could avoid paying income tax at your top marginal rate.

Gains might have been sub- ject to capital gains tax CGT at 30 per cent, but only if you had used up your annual exemption from CGT on gains valued, in. If you were worried about paying CGT. You would then have to pay Income on the two half-yearly dividends you received, but your capital gains would be tax free. From now on, the taxman may impose income tax only on your dividends but also on the accru- ing Interest on your gills as the dividend date approaches.

The amount of interest that has accrued by the date you sell will be calculated according to the formula used by the Stock Exchange for short-dated gilts. Jf you achieve genuine capital gains on year gilt holdings because of a cut in interest rates, that element of your returns will remain subject to the favourable. There is a further concession.

Transitional arrangements for the next 12 months should pro- vide comfort for many private investors. But with its Pension-. Save, Nationwide Is handling the whole operation. Under current legislation, only life companies can under- "vrite pension contracts, so Nationwide has linked up with Abbey Life assurance ana used: Marketing and investment will be handled entirely by Nationwide.

Abbey Life's agents will not he allowed to market the plan. Contributions win be col- lected by Nationwide and passed over to Abbey Life which will invest them back in a special PensiouSave fond run by ' Nationwide. But Nationwide should be able to do better. The self-employed can con- tinue the inflation-proofing in retirement by using the accu- mulated fund to buy an index- linked annuity from Abbey Life or any other life company mar- keting such annuities.

For investors who want a guaranteed return on their sav- ings that matches inflation, with something over, then this plan will attract them. This leads on to the second feature — marketing by Nation- wide staff. Tim Melvill e-Ross has been an innovator since joining Nationwide. This is his first major initiative since taking over as chief general manager earlier this month. He intends that at least one person in each branch should be trained to advise and market the pension plans.

Pensions advice to the self- employed comes in two stages: Bristol and West Britannia 7. SQ Century Edinburgh 8. Cheltenham, and Gloucester — -Citizens Regency — 7. Current account 3-year bond. No notice, 3 months' penalty Capital share. No notice, 1 month's penalty 5. No interest penalty 9.

But all too often, advisers, concentrate on the second stage and simply ask the seif- employed person how much he can afford, to invest One suspects that most Nationwide staff providing pen- sions advice will follow the second course. If they are trained to provide a full service they could earn far more with a registered insurance broker or financial planner — but the intention is that they will re- main on staff.

The commission paid by Abbey Life will go to the society, not the advisor. This leads on to the third feature. Abbey Life is paying Nation- wide commission rates at the top of the scales laid down by the Registry of Life Assurance Commissions. In theory, such sums should be paid only to expert independent inter- mediaries.

Your lax inspector will have the right to tax any accrued interest on your gilt and other bond holdings over the next 12 months. You will not be taxed on accrued income over the next year if the value of the accrued income is less than per cent of your divi- dend income from the same holdings. So if you have been bond washing regularly for the last few years, you will be able to continue doing so for another 12 months. In that case, you should sell your stock as soon as possible, and possibly reinvest your money in a low-coupon gilt. The price of high coupon gilts Fell back sharply when the news of the tax change was announced.

Since then the price has partially recovered, so you should not suffer much of a loss by selling now. Low coupon and index-linked stocks from. They will, usually offer better value to basic rate taxpayers too.

Holders of low coupon and index-linked gilts have bene- fited from price rises over the past two days, as a result of the tax change. So too have those unit trusts, such as the. Britannia Growth Gilt fund, which invested in low coupon gilts. But gUt unit trusts such as the Abbey Capital Reserve fund, which relied on selling high coupon gilts before their dividend dates, will find their style cramped, at least from next February.

For weeks now there have been forebodings in Wales that the team who have won the cham- pionship for tbe past two. A narrow squeak against Argentina, and a poor showing against Ireland until tbe closing stages, hardly brought the familiar contented glow to which Welsh- men have become accustomed. Both the Pumas and the Irish were beaten, which was mislead- ing. This, of course, was true.

But Wales, often un- noticed, have relied for too long on their brilliant backs to hide other deficiencies. France, meanwhile, have gradually been eradicating some of their traditional weaknesses: Both last season, and certainly in two wins against Australia in October, there was evidence that the French pack, and especially the front five, have accepted the need to knuckle down to basic graft and grind in the tight.

This more disciplined approach at scrummages and mauls has not detracted from the customary flamboyant handling in the loose. The French backs against Australia retained all their pre- ference for deep alignment If the space thereby created tends on occasion to be wasted by erratic passing, this, too. Is a blemish not as apparent as before. Sert- raline and Sangalli in the centre do not hold on to the ball as much as they used to do. The late change which brings Averons back on the wing sees tbe return of an experienced man for a norice, and does nothing to weaken France.

Gallic temperament remains the imponderable factor and explains why 1 discount tbe French defeat against Romania in November. A tide below strength through injuries eased off in the later stages, which is the sort of thing France are not likely to risk against Wales in Paris. More rele- vant possibly could be the French memories of tbeJr last two games against Wales. Wales, the underdogs, arrived with six new caps and scored fire tries against one. Last March ia Cardiff France were narrowly thwarted and after botii matches the inquests were anguished and bitter affairs.

Already it can be inferred that the French are going Into this match with caution. This is shown by the return of Fonroux as scrum half and captain. Harize 14 Rigbr wing T. Sangalli 12 Left centre D. Imbcrnon 4 Lock J. No huntsman keens tbe scent before Ins hounds more than Fouroux does the boll ia front of his forward;.

They also meet Pardck Thistle in the third round of the Scottish Cup at Easter Road on Sunday and they have named a party of 16 players to cover both matches.

Aberdeen, level on points with Critic but with two more games played, have a testing match against Particle Thistle at FlrhxLl today. Rangers will be unchanged against Ayr United at Somerset Park. Derek Johnstone is the Glasgow club's leading scorer with 17 goals and could well be the match-winner here. If he is not fit either Billy Pa ton or Brian Rodman will deputize. Dundee United, in the fourth place, drop John Holt, die full back, against Motherwell at Tanna- dice. Hearts have named a party of 15 players for their game with tbe bottom club, Kilmarnock, at Tynecastie, but Drew Busby, their striker, is doubtful because of a knee injury.

If France do not improve on their inept performance against Wales last November, Scotland can look forward confidently to win- ning tbe B international rugby match at Hughenden, Glasgow, today. So there is plenty of incentive, especially for the back row trio of Hegarty, Dickson and Hall. They are among seven players new to B international matches ; only five of die French team who were beaten 24—6 in Pcntypool, survive. A great responsibility therefore rests on the new centres, Laffer- rerc and BOIac. They are certain to be severely tested by the new captain Burnett and Frieli, two hard-running, swift-tackling centres.

Much of their time in recent years had been spent behind tbe scenes of a Lancashire- Cheshire tussle for tbe northern title which Yorkshire won for the first time this season, having beaten both Lancashire and Cheshire. Yorkshire have come so far because of tbeir firm belief that attack is the best means ' of defence. Richard Yardley, at centre forward, has been tbeir main scorer and the power behind his success is the encouragement be receives from Hughes in- tbeir middle line. Bhajan Singh Flora, the younger brother of Manjlt, is a newcomer to the triumphant Yorkshire forward line tills year.

This match could resolve itself into a battle between line and column, for Middlesex usually play with three rows of tbreo with Rolf Horst operating -behind as the sweeper.

V reco mm e n ded- 2. If you stand in the centre of Leicester Square and look over the roofs on the north side, you can.

This forms the hind part of the central house in the beautiful and still perfect Nash terrace, over the pediment of which remains the stone tablet which until bore the incrijgusng legend DIORAMA. This was the name devised from the Greek by Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre for the entertainment which brought him fame but not much fortune, several years before he achieved more lasting celebrity as one of the inventors of photography.

Planning approval has been granted to use the site as a mosque for the Aga Khan, retaining only the Nash fagade. Daguerre was 35 when he perfected the Diorama. He was bom in , the son of a petty official in Carmeilies-en- Parisis. Con- cluding his apprenticeship in , Daguerre went to work as an assistant to Prfivost. These two buildings owe their long survival to religion. In two bombs fell on it, but the sturdy Georgian brickwork sur- vived to provide the outer walls of the present church.

When the Diorama foundered in the -late s the building and its contents were purchased by Sir Samuel Morton Peto, a railway contractor, MP and devout Baptist, who converted it in into Regents Park Chapel, with the interior fash- ionably refurbished in Byzantine style. The culmination of this phase of his career, how- ever, was the production of Aladdin which opened the new opera bouse, rue Je PeJener, and in which Daguerre em- ployed gas illumination to re- markable literally dazzling effect. It consisted of vast pictures, upwards of 70 by 40 feet, which were skilfully painted on specially prepared canvas so that some parts re- mained translucent.

On the back of the canvas were painted shadows and other supplemen- tary effects, which were only evident when light was shone through the picture from behind. Gothic architecture is beautifully illu m ined, the shadows projected with force and troth, and the secondary lights produced beneath the groitdngs of the roofs In all the delicate gradations of natural reflections, dressed in the soft tones of colour which they borrow Since each exhibition of the Diorama consisted of two pic- tures.

The landscape scene — a view of the Valley of Sarnen Ip S witzerland — undergoes similar changes, in which the bursts of sunshine are admirably executed, and particularly in the effects pro- duced in the sky and on the clouds, which continually seem to form new combinations of light, colour and arrangement. This was in , the year in which Daguerre first opened the Diorama in Paris, in part- nership with Charles Marie- Tbe picture was then arranged so that it could be lit either from the front, or as a transparency from behind ; and when additionally the light was varied by an elaborate arrange- ment of shutters and coloured blinds or filters, a remarkable range of effects of atmosphere and light and shade could be produced.

Thus in the architectural subject the interior of Trinity Chape , a part of Canterbury Cathedral, the whole is at one moment Subdued The reviews for the first showings of the Diorama were ecstatic, as by and large they were to remain throughout its life. Even so, one suspects the hand of Daguerre whose sue cess in his several careers owed not a little to bis flair for pub- licity behind the notice in Le Miroir des Spectacles , des Lewes, des Moeurs et des Arts: The illustration on this page shows chat a move- ment of some 73 degrees per- mitted the audience to face in turn the two tunnels at the end of which hung the pictures, masked at the edges to aid the illusion.

It was operated by a S srem of gearing so perfect at the whole weight of 20 tons A crowd of amateurs of all classes, artists of all kinds, above all ladles, whose opinion has so powerful an influence upon people of fashion, yesterday crammed the elegant rooms of the daily spec- tacle which has become tenowo under the name of Diorama. It is un- clear whether this boy, who figures in all the contemporary descriptions of the panorama machinery, was a real child or a figurative notion only. The Diorama must enjoy a con- siderable success in a country where love of the beautiful Is so general.

It must be said fiat those citizens who do not hasten to pay their tribute of admiration to the sew invention; so superior to tbo Invention of Panoramas , should hasten to quit the modern Athens ; jest as a Government which does just as a Government which does not magnificently reward men who dp such honour to France should no longer exert any - influence upon public opinion or the direc- tion of the arts.

Augustus Charles Pugin father of Augustus Welby Pugin was entrusted with the work of recreating the Diorama build- ing, perhaps because as a French emigre he was able to communicate easily with Daguerre on his visits to Paris to study the mechanics of the Diorama. The Paris Diorama was burnt down in , leaving scant record of its construction. The audience was already prepared for the Diora- mic treats in store as soon as they passed through the lobby and into the rotunda. The ceil- ing above them was of trans- parent fabric, and a dim light shining through from a lantern in the roof above illuminated a series of 16 panels with por- traits of the great painters Pugin has scribbled in his note- book a reminder to himself u to speak to Mr Arrowsmith abt.

I bad beard much of the ex- hibition before I saw it ; but truly " the half was not told me I expected from report to undergo an optical illusion'; but never could I hare formed the expecta- tion of such a complete and per- fect beguUement of the sense of vision as that which it produced. I anticipated the sight of a beau- tiful painting and well-preserved perspective, of which I was always passionately fond ; but the admiration 'with- which 1 was struck on beholding the Valley of Sarnen, and Trinity - Chapel at Canterbury, in the Diorama, ex- ceeded every emotion of the kind I ever felt before.

The spectator is introduced Into the amphitheatre while one of the paintings is ex- hibiting and after be has sur- veyed it a short time, a bell rings and the amphitheatre moves to the diameter of the circle, and in the motion the other painting grad- ually opens to the view. This motion is repeated about every 10 minutes, so that the spectators who remain half an hoar are three tunes turned to the con- templation of each picture.

The writer, who signed himself Pharos extended his apprecia- tion of the views and the seating arrangements for two columns more. Other si designed for the arir ist: Audiences never ct astounded by the rea pictures, and there i of anecdote to attest the lady who insiste must be allowed to the nave of Trinity C another who hurriec her. The current joke, too, live goat that was as a prop in Dague of Mont Blanc, taker, Valley of Chamonh alleged that only the of the goat was real legs were painted.

Such additions to i trompe Toeil they. The descrip- -axnroe for the Heidelberg, and an ew of Notre Dame de tes: We can judge the monu- mental scale of the exhibition, of course, from the Nash-Pugiu building itself. They removed the revolving inner shell of the audi- torium, and the machinery that drove it, though the containing rotunda is still complete, and today actually functions as a raked auditorium. Around it a muddle of in-built floors and rooms obscure but do not des- troy the original form. In the cellars, the massive brickwork necessary to support the machinery reveals a wealth of mysterious traps and vents.

Mainly due to its continuous occupation, the archaeological significance of the building has even now never been properly studied. If it bad been, it seems very unlikely that authority for its demolition would have been so easily ob- tained. As it is, it seems im- probable that any intervention can now save it for preservation either as a unique monument in Paris they commemorate the spot where their Diorama once stood with a plaque — or as a Diorama a serious pro- posal for the -refurbishing mid recreation of the exhibition has been considered.

Whilst awaiting its fate the building is in use by a number of experimental theatre and musical groups: Was he a nomad, or a rich entrepreneur? Did be exist ar all? Why is there no men- tion of its year span in any surviving Egyptian record? And Joseph, and Moses: These, it seems, are questions which have long exercised the minds of Bible scholars and archaeologists. My misfortune and the misfortune, I suspect, of a great number of others who were brought up as over- credulous little Christians is that I was systematically given such dogmatic doses of the Old Tesrament that it remained for years afterwards a huge intel- lectual blank, just images and ringing phrases.

The Archaeology of the Bible Lands constitutes a useful anti- dote to aH that anti-education. It is no mean achievement, even when you can afford to fly round the world filming rites, scholars and stained-glass win- dows, to make programmes as riveting as these, when every- thing in them combines to form series of gigantic historical question marks. In strictly technical terms, this series is excellent — the only pity being that such visual rich- ness has to be crammed into half-hour sloes.
