NotesNews : Prince Charles has dropped an almighty clanger in hosting a private party at St James's Palace for the Spanish china manufacturer Porcelanosa. British manufacturers are, quite properly, enraged at this boost the heir to the throne has given to their competitors in a key market. Quite how sensitive the state of play in the china industry is was shown yesterday when the British firm Portmeiron announced a plunge of more than half in its half yearly profits, from 2.8 million pounds to 1.1 million pounds.
