Tonight - the carbon bills

are raising heat on the

Hill. The legislation to put a

price on carbon and realise a

clean energy future. Hear,

hear!. No carbon tax. Order!

The gallery will come to

order. No carbon tax! carbon tax! Nick Xenophon's

threat to name and shame a Catholic

Catholic priest. The Catholic

Church in SA will only have

itself to blame. Novak Djokovic

achieves a Grand Slam trifecta. He does it in style.

Novak Djokovic, the 2011 US Open champ!

Good evening Craig Allen with

ABC News. After years of reports, inquiries political division, Australia's reports, inquiries and bitter

journey towards carbon pricing

is drawing closer to an end.

The Prime Minister has

introduced her carbon tax bills

to Parliament and wants them

passed into law by November but

the debate is as divisive as

ever. Supporters turned out to

applaud Julia Gillard today but

dozens more later interrupted

her and were kicked out of

Parliament House as Mark Simkin

reports. It is Julia Gillard's

Minister? day of delivery. Big day, Prime

bills were delivered to the Minister? Certainly

chamber Today we move from

words to deeds. This Parliament

is going to get this done. Hear, done. Hear, hear!. The Prime

Minister warned MPs their votes

will be judged by future

generations. The final test is

are you on the right side of

history? Hear, hear!. Very few

people were on one side of the

Chamber. Coalition MPs left as the Prime Minister spoke. I

commend the Bill to the hear!. (Cheering). They House. Hear,

returned for Question Time with

a very different public gallery. Clean ... (No carbon tax! The

Gallery will come to order. The

protesters were thrown out and

took their chant with them. Through Parliament's

tax. Gillard's corridors. No carbon

tax. Gillard's finished. Have another blank cheque. And

ask a single courtyard. The Coalition didn't

carbon tax. Tony Abbott's

position is clear. Easy. It is

a cost of living killing, jobs destroying new more debate. Less than one destroying new tax. He wants

minute per member per Bill of

scrutiny of this

legislation. They say they more time but how much time legislation. They say they want

does it take to say no, no,

no. The Member's time has

expired. The day of decision

will come quickly. The

Government wants a Government wants a vote in the

Lower House in one month and in Senate in December. After the

carbon tax, the focus will

shift to foreign air fairs I am

happy to confirm President

Obama will visit Australia on

16, 17 November. I welcome

that, the Government welcomes

Australian people will welcome that and I believe the

that. Previous planned visits were cancelled. The Government

is hoping it is third time


is The Australian media industry

from a wide-ranging parliamentary inquiry. Calls

for an inquiry have abounded

since the 'News of the World'

scandal in the UK. The

Australian version will be backed by Labor and the Greens and will examine industry

regulation and privacy. The Government insists the inquiry

is not a witch-hunt against the

Murdoch media but the Opposition is not

convinced. This is a naked

attempt to intimidate the

media. I say again -

not the fault of the media. The problems of

problems of this Government are

its own fault. The Government

says the inquiry's terms of reference discussion. The Independent reference are still under

Senator Nick Xenophon says he will defy the Catholic Church and tonight name an priest

accused of rape. Senator Nick

Xenophon said the church was

made aware of the allegations

four years ago but has failed Senator says parishioners to resolve the issue . The

should be protected from the

Catholic Church in the 70s priest. John Hepworth left

after years of abuse by three

priests. He wants to explain

his story. I'm likely to meet

the Pope in the course of this. I've got

I've got to say something about

why I ran away almost 40 years

before. Two of the three

priests he says abused him have died and one still serves in an Adelaide parish. Senator Nick

Xenophon, a friend, has

threatened to name the priest

in Parliament unless he is

stood down. Right now there are stood down. Right now there

parents sending their children

to church unaware that their

priest in their parish has been

named as an abuser, a rapist. Archbishop Hepworth says his case against one of

the three priests was handled efficiently by the Melbourne

Catholic Archbishop Phillip Dioceses. But his complaint to

Cappo Wilson and Monsignor David

after four years. It hasn't

attended to my primary request

which is to fix my relationship

to the Catholic Church. In a

letter, the Catholic Church has

pleaded with Senator Xenophon

not to name the priest. It says

standing the priest down was

not justified under the law. The Catholic Church said the

priest has denied the allegations against him and he

is entitled to be heard on them

before any decision is made.

While Archbishop Hepworth says

he doesn't want the priest named, Zen for Xenophon

intends to proceed with the

threat. If he is named, the

Catholic Church will itself to blame. The Adelaide Archdiocese

says it is shocked by Senator's

stand and has several timing asked Archbishop Hepworth to

report his concerns to the

police. In Kenya, an explosion

and fire have killed 120

people. Scores more serious burns. The blast

happened as people were

collecting fuel from a leaking

pipe in a densely populated

slum area in the capital,

Nairobi. A warning, some viewers may find the pictures

disturbing. This is what's left

of the Nairobi slum around the

site of the explosion. Hours

after the blast, firefighters

were still working to contain

spot fire, not that there was

much left to burn through let

alone save. The area is a

collection of smouldering

remains and grieving remains and

survivors. TRANSLATION: This is

is where I used to live. The

remains of my child are in

there. When I arrived home, I

found a huge fire and people

were running around madly. My

wife ran away but my child was

confused and ran back into the

house. Dazed residents look on as

as the charred victims are put

into body bags. Most of the

dead have been so badly burnt

it is impossible to tell the

men from the women. Many people

were trying to collect fuel from from the leaking pipeline

shortly before the blast.

People know this is dangerous, but

but in this impoverished

community, it is an easy way to

make money. This is a terrible, make money. This is a terrible,

terrible, terrible

accident. Kenya's President joined the Prime Minister in

consoling survivors. He visited

a hospital where scores of

people are receiving treatment

for severe burns. Doctors say

many of the injured are in intense ive see, we are overstretched. The

Kenya Petroleum Company has

admitted its pipeline was

faulty but it's not faulty but it's not yet known what triggered the blast. The

Government has promised to hold

a full investigation and to

compensate the victims and their families. First Fukushima, now concern

is growing in Japan about

another nuclear plant described

by its critics as the

Hamaoka plant, about 200km west

of Tokyo, sits on a major fault

line which generates a magnitude 8 earthquake every 100 to 150 years. TRANSLATION:

The Prime Minister asked us to

stop operations at our nuclear

power station because there is

an 87% likelihood we will be

hit by a large quake in the

near future. While the power

company says it is doing all it

can to ensure the plant is safe

to resume operations, critics warn it is another Fukushima

disaster just waiting to

happen. TRANSLATION: If you

ask me what is the most

dangerous nuclear plant in the world, I have to say Hamaoka. The ABC's 'Foreign

Correspondent' program gained

exclusive access to the

40-year-old plant. The story

can be seen on ABC1 at 8

o'clock tonight. Thousands of

dementia sufferers are said to

be missing out on valuable

treatment and support. That's

the gloomy verdict from a new international study at least half the people who

have dementia aren't being diagnosed, particularly in high-income countries like

Australia. Medical reporter

Sophie Scott has the story. It

is one of the first insights

into the extent of the dementia

epidemic sweeping the world and the news isn't good. The world Alzheimer's report estimates 3

in 4 people remain undiagnosed. Researchers from the Kings the Kings College in London,

found half the people of the richer countries were

undiagnosed. A delayed dieg nosis means people out on treatment and therapies that could help them. People's

symptoms decline legs quickly,

people retain their function

for longer. An Australian

report found it takes about

three years to be diagnosed

from the first doctor's

appointment. There is a difference between losing your

car keys and forgetting

have a car at all. The reasons

why are many and varied, from

denial on the part of the

patient or family to patient or family to the false

belief dementia is a normal part of ageing. Lack of

awareness by the public, fear

of seeking a diagnosis, lack of skill and time by practitioners. The Construction Union says it has been denied access been denied access to a site

contaminated by asbestos in Fyshwick. Asbestos material was

discovered at Boral

Plasterboard Trade Centre after

a forklift cracked a wall. The air monitoring tests, which are

mobably the most important,

came back clear but some of the

material found on site came

back positive and that's what

led us to shut down the

site. WorkSafe says Boral has

been cooperating with the authorities but the Construction Union enter ing the site. We

explained we wanted to make

sure the measures were

effective. They informed us

they were calling

Police. The Police were called. The clean-up should

take several days after more

testing. It was a slightly better day on the share market

after yesterday's big fall but

the basic problem hasn't gone

away. The European banks that

have under-written Greece's

debt are looking shaky. As

Phillip Lasker reports, there

may be a knock-on effect banks here. Some investors were

buying shares today but the

banks weren't a major target.

They are the victims of a global unease

financial institutions and a

shortage of deposits. Which

means they have to borrow money

overseas and the cost of debt

has escalated sharply foaling

the Eurozone crisis. In the UK,

the Government is forcing banks

to build a firewall between

their consumer and

investment options It would

help insulate the services from global financial shocks. What

is proposed today is a higher requirement on UK banks elsewhere, that will add to the

cost of doing business and

banking in the UK. On the streets, demonstrators were protesting against taxpayer subsidies propping up the

banks. We are zombie banks, we

do not have enough of the blood

of people like yourself. The

good humour was nowhere to be

seen in Italy as protesters

outside Parliament railed austerity measures. Away from

the streets, reports a cashed-up

cashed-up China may invest in

Italy, whose debt is more Italy, whose debt is more than Spain, Ireland, Portugal and

Greece combined, had a calming

effect. The mood is anything

but calm in Paris amid speculation at least three

major banks may be downgraded. TRANSLATION:

Suddenly we think "All this

money we spent, has it helped

and how much more do we need to

put in? Especially, what will be the be the bill for European banks at the end?". That's the

multi-trillion Euro question

which may take years to answer. Business confidence Australia has slumped to its Australia has slumped to its

lowest level since the global

financial crisis and there were

more heavy losses on European

stock markets today, although Australian share prices

recovered slightly. Heerf is

Alan Kohler. No big surprise

but business confidence has

crashed in August. Partly as a result of this, and else going on, markets are fully pricing at least one rate

cut in the next two months.

These surveys are volatile so

it is better to look at longer-term trends. Confidence

has been ebbing away since mid

2009 when Australia dodged the

global financial crisis bullet and business people were

basking in a state of euphoric

relief. It is not showing up in

investment retention s or staff

cuts. The Greek Government is

trying to get its expenses

working. The gap is blowing out

again. Those who have invested

in Greece itself, or in the

banks that have lent to it, are

despairing Greece has any hope

of avoiding default by would

force the lenders to write down

their loans. For many banks

that would insolvency because

they haven't got enough capital

to cover it. There was an

insipid rally in New York which

led to a similarly led to a similarly insipid one

here, up 0.8%. BHP-Billiton led

the way. Cochlear managed to

get back get back 4.5%. Two locally-listed African mineral

explores, Sundance and

Bannerman, dropped 10% today

after the corporate cop said it

was investigating insider trading by China's hall hall

which is trying to take them over. The Australian dollar was

broadly steady. That's finance. Police in Britain

have smashed a slavery ring

operating in the heart of the English country side. English country side. Officers

raided a travellers site where

it is thought people have been

held against their will for as

long as 15 years. Surrounded by Bedfordshire is Greenacre

Caravan site. A travellers camp

where police say people have

been forced to work for years

as slaves. Inside sheds horse boxes, officers found 24

men living in terrible

conditions, some suffering from

malnutrition. It is thought

they'd been too scared to try to to escape. It is not something

in this country, in this day

and age, we expect to find

squallid conditions, people

being kept in filthy caravans, covered in faeces. Police

believe the men were recruited

by gang-masters and forced to

work without pay. British

Eastern European, they had been

vulnerable alcoholics or homeless. But travellers at the site have dismissed the

claims. There is no slave here.

People go and come when they

want. Some of the men found by

police have refused help and

say they won't cooperate with

the investigation. They tried

to question me but I told them

I am not willing to do an

interview. I'm just walking through the police station door. These people are

intiegsalised. - institutionalised. One person

has been here 15 this is normal life. Four men,

all from the same traveller

family, have been charged with slavery offences. Canberra needs more foster

carers for vulnerable children.

A recruitment drive has been

launched with carers of

Aboriginal or Torres Strait

Islander background most in demand. Kathleen Dyett

reports. For the O'Sullivans,

it is always a full horse. We

have been foster caring for

about six years. Done a bit

repeat care - respite care,

crisis care, now long-term

placements. More than 550 children are in out-of-home

care In the tax ACT. The unmet

need is significant. It is not so much there are children who

don't have placements, it is

more can we get a pool of

carers that will provide the

best possible Care for kids. It

is a message we need to get

out, is that anyone can be a

carer. Maureen McClean is

helping to spread that message. She pras She pras provided foster care for more than 130 babies and

children. To be able to be

helpful to people in a difficult time in their life, I

find that's very find that's very good for your

soul. The Government hopes an

advertising campaign will prompt others to put their

hands up. We're looking for

ordinary people from all kinds of background who can share

their home. We are particularly

looking for Aboriginal and

Torres Strait Island people.

About a quarter of in care are from those

bounds. These young people need

to be understood, listened to

and cared for. I think foster

caring delivers so much of

that. It is a cause with no shortage of champions.

Novak Djokovic is the new US

Open Men's champion after he

downed Rafael Nadal in four

sets this morning. The Serb has now

now beaten Nadal the last six

times they have met, including

three grand slam finals this year. John Hayes Bell reports. The 2011 US Open men's

final will be remembered as one

of the best. I think I have

played a great match. For four

hours and 10 minutes, through four gripping sets, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal went

toe to toe. It was enthralling

open combat. The Serbian set out to continue his recent

dominance and the Spaniard tried desperately to

re-establish himself at the

top. A year at top. A year at ago, Nadal won but this final swung in the

Serbian's direction in the

opening two sets. He trailed

2-love in both but Djokovic has

learnt lessons from the years he struggled against Roger

Federer and Nadal. All-out

attack has become his best

defence. I continue give him any comfort. Regularly it was power, sometimes it was

finesse. Looking for his 11th

Grand Slam title, Nadal had

many big moments. In a third set, sprinkled with exquisite

rallies, the Spain ard lifted

to new levels. He broke back

and won the tie break 7-3. Djokovic snatched back the

initiative early in the fourth

and didn't look back, closing

it out 6-1. Incredible feeling.

I had amazing year and it keeps

going. What you did this year

is probably impossible to repeat so well

done. 24-year-old Djokovic added the US Crown to his other

Grand Slam #250i89 titles Grand Slam #250i89 titles in Australia and Wimbeldon this

year. As the men battled it out

on centre court, Samantha

Stosur was basking in the glory

of her win in the women's final

yesterday. She is the toast of

New York after breaking Australia's three decade-long

drought of women's Grand Slam

victories. Serena Williams is also attracting headlines. As

. It is a tale of one city and

two players. Unbelievable. Overwhelming

A little bit, yes. Trophy in

hand, the world at her feet,

Samantha Stosur is savouring

her taste of the Big Apple. How

was last night? Great fun. We

had a great time. I desperately need some more need some more sleep, though. Perhaps that was Serena

Williams' problem the night

before. Her outburst at the

chair umpire had chair umpire had everything.

Advice. If you seerf see me

walking down the hall, look the

other way. You are a other way. You are a hater,

unattractive inside. We are in America. Williams' attack cost

her $2,000 to be deducted from her $900,000 runners up cheque.

The officials deemed her action

not a major offence. I never

complaint. She does. Two years

ago, Williams was fined more than than $80,000 for abusing lines

woman. I can't say I would kill

you, are you serious? She was

on the last day of a two-year

probation for that offence when

the latest spray occurred The

fact she went on with it, I

thought it would lead to a

bigger fine. It is her way to

get back into the match. It

lifted her. It is not the way

to do it. She had to find a

way, that was her way. Stosur's

way is very different and this time its NRL Chief Executive David

Gallop has apologised to

Melbourne Storm fans after

comparing their passion to that

of terrorists. Gallop

out after fans booed him as he

presented the Storm with its

minor premiership trophy at the

weekend. Those people who booed

me yesterday, they obviously

support the cheating that was

going on. Terrorists are

passionate about what they do.

That doesn't make it don't think the supporters are

being unfair when they are

being passionate about

something like this because they genuinely feel betrayal.

It is that betrayal that pours

out in their emotions. If David

had his time again, he would

choose his words

carefully. Melbourne Storm won

the 2007 and 2009 grand finals

but was stripped of both

Premierships for salary cap breaches. The Australian War

Memorial is bringing out some

big guns, dusting off many its largest war time mementos

for an exhibition at the

storage show. It will be the first showing of

fighter jet, built during the

Cold War era and used during

the Malayan emergency. It is

part of the Memorial usually

kept hidden but behind closed

doors lay thousands of pieces. We have aircraft,

artillery pieces, trucks, tanks. All don't get the opportunity to display on a regular basis. The annex is opened annually, providing a require

behind-the-scenes look at some

of the Memorial's largest,

oldest and more unusual

pieces. This is a great

opportunity for people to come

and look at what they don't normally get to see. The Memorial's newest acquisition

is on display. An Australia-built 1950s sabre

fighter jet. For its time, it

was one of the most on the planet. It was a serious piece of engineering. To German

weaponry. This V2 rocket and

wooden experimental tell stories about the

brutality and desperation of

World War II. At the end of

the war, there was a

restriction material. This

rocket is intended to fly once

and explode. A Japanese Ha-Go

tank abandoned at Milne Bay in

Papua New Guinea still riddled

with bullet holes. The soldiers

couldn't resist

couldn't resist putting their names. We have documented that. The 'Big Things In Store'

opens on Sunday. Looks good.

With a look at today' weather, here is Mark Carmody. Thanks,
