Asda chief gives up political hopes

The Asda chief, Archie Norman, said that he would give up his political ambitions to continue to build the recovery of the supermarket group which he had revived. Mr Norman, who took over Asda in 1991, had been mentioned as a possible candidate for Alan Howarth's seat at Stratford- on-Avon.
