Good morning, I'm Natarsha Belling.

Welcome to Ten's Morning News.

Today - the missing MP. A search is

under way for a Victorian politician missing in rugged bushland.

The push for equal pay - lobbyists

demand the Government close the

wage gap between men and women.

And home at last - two Australian

soldiers return from Vietnam 40

years after they died.

First this morning, a Victorian

State Minister is missing in rugged

mountain bushland. Water Minister

Tim Holding went hiking over the

weekend, but failed to return as

expected on Sunday. Ten's Gareth

Boreham joins us live now from

Melbourne. What fears are held for

Mr Holding? As the hours go by, the

situation gets more worrying.

Particularly given the conditions

that has been experienced in the

Alps in the last few days. The 37-

year-old minister set off on his

walk from the Victorian high

country on Saturday. He was last

heard from at 6:30pm that night

when he converted his partner by

mobile phone. He was staying on

Saturday night at Federation hut.

It was expected but yesterday he

would make the sometimes

treacherous journey from there to

the summit. As we now know, there

has been no trace of him since. Mr

Holding is no stranger to Holding is no stranger to

bushwalking. Apparently he was

quite well prepared for the quite well prepared for the

conditions. He is an experienced

bushwalker and he is also a very,

very fit individual. He has run

several marathonners, very quickly

I might add. He has also walked the

Kokoda Track. He is a former army

reservist. He was also quite well

equipped with a tent, apparel and

provisions for a night in the snow.

If anyone was to survive a night in

those conditions, it would be him.

It does give colleagues and the

premiere some cause for optimism

and confidence. -- the Premier. I

am hopeful that given his am hopeful that given his

preparation and his determination

and his fitness, he will walk out

today. But I do not have more to

time. add at this stage. Thanks for your

Hundreds of high-school students

have staged a walkout after the

death of a student. Witnesses say

he died after intervening in a

fight between two others about who

could sit at a lunch table. Friends

say the school has a problem with

bullying and violence. Most schools

see what happens and they don't do

much about it. They think it's not

going to turn out like this. Police

say it's too early to know if

death. anyone will be charged over Jai's

This is obviously a terrible

accident that has affected the

wider community. Unfortunately, the

blame game has already started. Do

you think the school and the

teachers did enough? We do not have

the complete report yet. It is very

difficult in a school, where you

get a brawl of this sort, to

intervene. It is easy to blame the

principle and teachers, but indeed

I think this is a question of the

young people involved taking some responsibility for what has

occurred. We need to get to the occurred. We need to get to the

bottom of the facts before we start

looking at where the blame lies and

how the school can move forward.

Right now, the school would be in a

pretty dark place. In regards to -

This is an example of schoolyard

violence and there is speculation

about it being revolved around

bullying. Many schools have anti-

bullying policies, but obviously

they are not working. It seems to

be out of control, not just at the

school but at many across the

country. I am not reading this as a

bullying incident. Bullying is

about power, a sustained attack on

any individual. This is more about

a brawl which occurred on the basis

of peer group, I think. Year nine,

you 11 boys, high levels of

testosterone, wanting to make a

point, eat out their bit of

territory. -- Year 11. I do not see

it as bullying. I see it as a brawl

with tragic consequences. Every

school has policies about bullying,

particularly cyberbullying. They

are doing enormous amounts, as by

the education departments. But

there will always be bullying. We

want is staggered out, but it is

very difficult to achieve. So might

the answer lie with the students

taking responsibility for their own

actions, and parents at home as

well? Unquestionably. It is

disturbing that we are seeing

conflict resolved by violence. We

want to stop that. Schools should

have a zero tolerance to violence.

In the one end, we want to make

sure that all Australians attending

school are safe and happy. In 19 I

% of cases, they are. Do you

understand on know-how long this

brawl went on for, and should

others have stepped in to stop it?

I am not sure how long it went for.

By legislation, every school across

the country will have teeters on

duty during breaks, recess,

lunchtime. -- teachers on duty.

Schools Power up large places. It

is very hard to be in every place

at every time. If teachers were

there, I am sure they would have

attempted to do something to stop

it. Again, without knowing the full

circumstances and the number of

young people involved, it is very

hard to ascertain how difficult it

would be to stop. In the end,

teachers to try very hard to stop

events of this sort. -- do try. And

that another, if teachers do

physically touch Steelers to stop

events of this sort, there are

questions of their professionalism.

-- touch students. In an event like

this, where a young man has died, I

think political correctness in

these instances goes too far. I

would like to see, when we know the

facts, I hope that we will see

evidence of teachers trying to

intervene. Thanks for your time.

40 years after women were promised

equal pay for equal work, a new

alliance has been formed to lobby

the Federal Government to finally

close the wage gap. The Equal Pay

Alliance has been formed to

coincide with Equal Pay Day being

held tomorrow. 135 community,

business and peak welfare groups

have signed on to support the

alliance. The Australian Council of

Trade Unions has found a woman must Trade Unions has found a woman must

work 14 months to earn the same

amount a man is paid in a year, and

would still earn 17%, or more than

life. $1 million, less over their working

And later, we'll talk to Elizabeth

Broderick, the sex discrimination

commissioner about this issue.

The Treasurer has warned tens of

thousands of jobs would be

threatened if the Government

prematurely withdrew its economic

stimulus. Strong economic figures

out this week are expected to

strengthen Opposition demands for

the big spending to be wound back.

New school buildings have helped

keep Australia avoid the bottom of

the economic class. Tonight Julia

Gillard's focus is just staying

ahead of the fifth grade. I do put

up with a bit of venom, it is true.

The Opposition has been particularly venomous over the Government's billion-dollar boost

to its stimulus package to cope

with demand from schools. She's

seriously asking people to believe

that the Government thought one out

of 10 schools would say, "No, no,

we don't want the $3 million, we

don't need it." The money flooding

into the economy is designed to

keep Australia's head above the

recession tideline. And it seems to

be working. But confidential advice recession tideline. And it seems to be working. But confidential advice

from Treasury to the Government warns "withdrawing the stimulus

more quickly would risk stalling

the economy and causing a steeper

rise in the unemployment rate". the economy and causing a steeper

rise in the unemployment rate". The

stimulus is designed to be

withdrawn, it reaches its peak in

terms of the cash payments in June

and the infrastructure peaks in

September and December. If the

Government could cut back on parts

of its stimulus, there's now an

improving case for that. But that

egg's mostly scrambled, the money's

already in the pipeline. Instead,

economists say it'll be up to

interest rates to control

threatening inflation. The Reserve

Bank board meets tomorrow, and

while economists don't expect a

move straightaway, strong national

accounts will be the sign the bank

is looking for to start moving

rates back to normal levels from

their historic lows. Remember that

the Reserve Bank will be raising

rates by 2% to 2.5% over the next

18 months. Brad Hodson, Ten News.

Police in Melbourne believe a 4-

year-old boy may have witnessed his

mother's murder. The child's father

had it himself into authorities,

claiming he fatally stabbed his

partner after she told him their

marriage was over.

a 27-year-old will face court

charged with the murder of his wife

yesterday at their home in

Melbourne's south-east. He

yesterday presented himself to the

local police station, clutching his

4-year-old son and confessed to the

study murder of his wife in their

kitchen. Police believe that the

boy, just four years old, might

even have witnessed the attack.

Earlier this morning we spoke to

his mother, obviously distraught at

what has happened. She says she got

a chilling phone call from her son

yesterday, saying that he had

snapped and killed his wife of five

years and that he was now handing

himself into the police station to

face the consequences. He called me

between one o'clock and 1:30pm. He

said, mum, I love you, but today I

am going to let you know I

committed a crime. He said to me, I

killed Juliet. I could not believe

it. That is when I felt my world

falling apart. I could not believe.

She has told us that the marriage

of five years was in dire trouble

and that yesterday's Juliet had

told her husband that she wanted to

leave him for another man. She says

her son told her over the phone

yesterday that he just snapped and

attacked her in the kitchen.

Australia's last two servicemen

missing from the Vietnam War have

been brought home. There remains

touched down at the Richmond base

just over an hour ago. Our reporter

was there. This is certainly a long

time coming for the families of the

missing servicemen. There are just

three little words, missing in

action, but you can imagine for the

families of these men, it has

caused nothing but anguish for 40

years. Today that ended a little

bit with the arrival here at

Richmond Air Force Base of the

bodies of the two men. They landed

about an hour ago. The two men

actually went on a regular bombing

routine in 1970. They dropped their

bombs near the border with Laos.

They made radio connection on the

way back to their base and that was

the last anyone heard from them.

Today, the arrival of their bodies

here brings to an end a painful

chapter not just for the families

but also for the Air Force. We do

not like to leave our mates behind.

Obviously at a time when the

aircraft crashed, we could not to a

ground search. The squadron

searched for five days solid and it

is very important to them.

Regardless of how many years behind

it is, it is still the Air Force

family. Of course, for the families

themselves, it provides a measure

of comfort for them. How were they

eventually found? The two

servicemen were the last of six.

There were six per Australian

personnel, four from the army, two

from the Air Force, who were

missing in action. The other four

have been found in the last couple

of years. A concerted effort

started about a year ago. Using

their last known

Radiocommunications, they tried to

work out where they might have gone

missing. They went into the jungle,

spoke to villagers and actually

found parts from the old bomber

that they had flown. They then

began in earnest the search for the

men. In April they found the

wreckage and remains. About a month

ago they identified the remains and

confirmed they were Flying Officer

Michael Herbert and Pilot Officer

Robert Carver, bringing to an end

the anguish for the families, the

difficulty and uncertainty of

almost 40 years. Behind me now

there is the repatriation ceremony

here at Richmond. Their funerals

will be held later this week in

Adelaide and Toowoomba, Queensland.

Thanks for your time.

Dugard was imprisoned for 18 years.

Californian police have now

extended their search to the house

next door.

where Jaycee Lee Dugard was kept

for 18 years. These first pictures

show a squalid scene and police

believe there are still more

Phillip Garrido, the man accused of

abduction, lived for a time in a

going thoroughly through both

backyards and it is too early to

say what we may come up with. I do

not know... we're going to take a

detailed look at the back yard.

Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy

Garrido have denied charges in

connection with the case. Police at

their home are now looking for

evidence relating to the murder of

a number of prostitutes in the

1990s. Phillip Garrido's father

says his son is deeply disturbed.

He is crazy. He is out of his head.

serious problem with his head. Day

the question is, have other crimes

Exit polls in the Japanese

elections show a landslide win for

the opposition party, ending nearly

50 years of unbroken rule. The

Democratic Party of Japan looks to

have won 300 of the 480 seats in

the lower house, ousting the

Liberal Democrat Party. Prime

Minister Taro Aso has said he will

resign as LDP leader, taking

responsibility for the massive defeat.

Britain has denied the Lockerbie

bomber was freed to protect an oil

deal with Libya. Abdelbaset Ali al-

Megrahi's release this month on

compassionate grounds brought

condemnation from around the world.

This is perhaps the image Libya

wants the world to see, the first

television pictures of the Lockerbie bomber since he returned

to Tripoli. They show a dying man

in his hospital bed. We were unable

to verify the exact state of his

health. Asked if his release was

connected to rare lucrative oil

deal two years ago, he was unable

to give an answer. This is the

moment when the oil deal with

British giant BP was struck. Tony

Blair met the -- Colonel Gadaffi in

his tent deeper in the Libyan

desert. Victims of the Lockerbie

bombing have shown alarm. In the

interests of the UK, there should

be more investigation, they say. I

think it would be naive to say

international trade had nothing to

do with this decision. It has

fuelled concerns about the

motivation the time -- behind

Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi's release.

Ministers deny it was linked to

trade. I had no power to do a deal

and to say to the Libyans, we will

do a deal with you on oil. For

those who suspect he was set free

for oil, the leaked letters will

only heighten those concerns, even

if his event will release was taken

because he is nearing the end of

his life. -- avenge all.

A fighter jet has crashed at an air

festival in Poland, killing both

pilots. The SU 27 was performing

aerobatic manoeuvres when it

crashed behind some trees, erupting

in a thick cloud of black smoke.

Both pilots on board were killed

but no one on the ground was

injured. It is believed the crash

was caused by birds being sucked

into an engine. Next, the equal pay

push - we talk to the Sex Discrimination Commissioner about

why women are still paid less than

men. And the skydiver who faced

This program is captioned live. And

his storylines has been formed to

put an end to the pay gap between

men and women. To discuss the new

alliance, we're joined by sex discrimination commissioner

Elizabeth Broderick. This is

extraordinary. It is 2009 and it

has been 40 years since it was

first officially made illegal to

discriminate between men and women

with pay. Why is this still

happening? I know, that is the

question we need to ask. I think

that is why the Equal Pay Alliance

is really important. We have taken

our eye off the ball on this issue.

We need to refocus and lift the

advocacy and move forward to make

changes. It is clearly unacceptable

that in 2009 men and women are paid

differently for work of equal or

comparable value. What has the

recent research showing? How big is

the gap? The gap at the minute is

about 17%. That is full-time

ordinary earnings, but if you put

in part-time and casual workers,

most of whom are women, it comes to

34%. So for every dollar a man

earns, a woman will earn 66 cents,

and it is not acceptable. What

difference will the alliance make?

We have been fighting this battle

for more than 30 years. We have

been fighting for a long time. I do

think that we have taken our eye

off the ball on this issue. It is a

complex issue. There is no easy

fixes, unfortunately. What we need

to do is refocus. And when I say

'we', we need the Government to

increase focus, businesses to take

the issue seriously, and as the

community, we need to understand

that it still exists. Who is

involved in the alliance and what

are you set to do to make a

difference? There is a whole lot of different organisations. 134

organisations, including community-

based organisations, unions,

representative groups. What we hope

to do firstly is to lift the

awareness of the issue in the

community. Also start to look at

some of the international solutions.

One of the things is Equal Pay Day,

which will be celebrated this year

on 1st September. That means that

it takes a woman 14 months to earn

what a man would ordinarily earn in

12 months. Let's celebrate Equal

Pay Day. Let's get the message out

there - this is an issue and we

need to change it. One of the other

things is in the UK, where they

have introduced a few months ago

some new legislation which requires

companies to publish in their annual report the difference

between what they pay men and what

they pay women. I think that level

of transparency is something also

that we could look out as an option.

What are you wanting many

Australian women to do? We are not

as proactive as we have been in

previous years and last century

even. That is right. I think some

of the research would suggest that

women are negotiating differently

to men. Where women have individual

negotiations, they are

disadvantaged. I suppose it would

be about asking women to stand up

in their organisations and start to

request a gender pay audit. That

would just show whether or not

there is a problem between what the

company or organisation is paying

men and women. We should be doing

that across government,

particularly the finance and

insurance industry, because we know

that is one of the sectors that has

the largest pay gap of any sector

in this country. Equal Pay Day is

tomorrow, so if people want to find

out more information, where should

they go? They should go to the

website, the EOWA website. The

other thing they can do is to start

to have Equal Pay Day celebrations

in the organisation. Once again,

that raises the level of awareness

that this issue still exists and we

need to fix it. Good luck with a

very important fight. Thanks for your time.

It's a big week for the Australian

economy, with the June quarter national accounts figures on

Wednesday expected to confirm we

are defying the global recession.

Ten's political editor Paul

Bongiorno joins us live. Will the

good economic news just bolster the

Opposition's case that we no longer

need the big stimulus spending? I

think it probably is, and that

worries the Government somewhat.

The Treasurer this morning is out

there, warning that winding back

the stimulus to early will lead to

any increase in unemployment. The

other message is that he is warned

by the Treasury but we're not out

of the woods yet. What has also

bolster the case that the

Opposition is putting is the

finding last week that one of the

big elements of the stimulus

package - actually, I have someone

in my ear. Sorry. The schools

package blew up by $1.7 billion and

the Opposition says this is showing

that the stimulus is not being

managed as well as it should be.

What we've actually seen is

profiteering by business, skimming

by state governments, waste and

mismanagement to the tune that the

program is now blown out

substantially by $1.7 billion,

which is very embarrassing for the

Government. But more importantly,

it indicates that this once-in-a-

generation opportunity is being

squandered. I think Julia Gillard

is more embarrassed about the fact

that she's becoming a jack of all

trades and master of none. She

clearly has too many jobs on and

she's not doing any of them well.

Julia Gillard is wearing her

education minister heart, and she

is off to India. She recorded an

appearance on a TV show when she

talks about a venomous snakes.

Probably an expert, from all the

jousting in Parliament, I think.

With all this good economic news, should homeowners be concerned

about what tomorrow's Reserve Bank

board meeting may decide? Good news

brings bad news. A survey it shows

that it is believed interest rates

will stay on hold, but the Reserve

Bank will stir -- send a message

that they will raise rates before

the end of the deer. Some

economists say we will have two

risers before the end of the year.

It seems that rates will not be

going down. They are already at

record lows. It will be very

interesting for borrowers to see

what happens in the morning. For

completely changed. Heartbreak for Australian Marcos Ambrose this morning in Montreal.

After dominating the NASCAR race in

Canada, the former V8 champion made

a mistake on the final corner, to lose.

For two straight years, Marcos

Ambrose dominated in Montreal,

without winning. History this

morning made it three from three.

He looked in a class of his own. He

led 60 of 76 laps. His only mistake

in the greasy conditions came on

the final turn. Can you believe

this? He makes one mistake all day

and it will cost in the win. The

Tasmanian bristling post race. I

just made one mistake and it cost

me the race. Aussie despair

continued across the globe last

night. Mark Webber avoided the

carnage at the start of the Belgian Grand Prix. Championship leader

Jenson Button and world champ Lewis

Hamilton among the casualties.

Webber made a promising start but

he was denied by his pit crew. He

was released too soon after his

stop, almost triggering a crash. A

drive-through penalty sent him to

the back. He recovered to finish

9th out of the points. Worse still,

he was relegated to fourth in the

title fight, leap frogged by his

team-mate Sebastien Vettel, who

finished third. The race won by

Kimi Raikkonen, Ferrari's first win

of the year. Giancarlo Fisichella

second to hand lowly Force India

their first podium. And a rare

mistake by Valentino Rossi in mistake by Valentino Rossi in

America. The championship leader

stacked. It left his team-mate

Jorge Lorenzo to take the win and

close the margin on his fierce rival.

Rain has spared England during its

first one day match against

Australia at Old Trafford. Cameron

White shone for the Aussies,

smashing 55 off 36 balls to help

the visitors to 4 for 145 from

their 20 overs. Brett Lee wasted no

time in reply, taking Joe Denly in

the first over Shane Watson then

caught Ravi Bopara off a Mitchell

Johnson delivery to leave the home

side struggling at 2-4 before the

heavens opened. The game washed out,

the two match series remaining at nil-all.

A final round 67 has handed Heath

Slocum his third career win at the

Barclays. The American avoided a

play off in sensational fashion -

world number one Tiger Woods had a

chance to move into a share of the

lead at the 18th but he couldn't

sink the birdie. Then co-leader

Steve Stricker missed his par putt

at the last to drop back to second

alongside Tiger. Jason Day was the

best of the Aussies, five shots off the pace.

Manchester City's Emmanuel Adebayor

continues his dream start to the

English Premier League. The Togo

international scoring his third

goal in as many games to help city

down Portsmouth 1-nil and remain

undefeated this season, while Aston undefeated this season, while Aston

Villa got the better of Fulham 2-

nil. An own goal slipping passed

Socceroo Mark Schwarzer in the

third minute before Gabriel

Agbonlahor finished it off with a cracking second half strike.

Elsewhere Everton beat Wigan 2-1.

There's a 'free-ride' day with a

focus on air time and style, an all in, shoulder-to-shoulder downhill

race, and 'Big Mountain', where one

false turn could be your last.

There are a lot of things you have

to be concerned about. Mixed

emotions. You just have to hope you

do it. The athletes have been hand

picked from across the globe, and

happily pay from their own back

best. Now this event runs a lot

like a surf contest. There is a two

week waiting period which kicks off tomorrow.
