deferral of six new A380s, the

commissioning of a fleet of

smaller planes and the axing of

1,000 jobs. Unions are outraged

at the cuts and threatening to

ramp up industrial action. Here

is transport reporter Kylie

Simmonds. There is a new spirit

was the Qantas catch cry

splashed all over national

newspapers this morning. The PR

blitz indicated a major

announcement was imminent to

address its struggling

international operation. It is

a steadily failing business,

suffering big financial losses

and a substantial decline in

market share. Qantas will

launch a new carrier in Asia

that will have its own name and

aircraft. It is tipped to be based in either Kuala Lumpur or

Singapore. We will always call Australia home. Jetstar Japan

will fly domestic and international routes but

Qantas creates new jobs in Asia

it will axe 1,000 positions

here. Pilots, cabin crew and

engineers will be affected. It

is probably the thin edge of

the wedge in an ideological

battle to shift the labour

force to Asia over time. Alan

probably, if anything, a little

too late. Qantas hopes to save

$2.3 billion within

Despite all the fan fare of

buying new A380 airbuses, it is

delaying its final order.

Instead investing in smaller planes. The announcement has

further inflamed tensions

between Qantas and the union s

who are fighting the move to shift jobs offshore. Industrial

action is likely to be stepped

up as early as next week. Qantas has more to announce,

starting next week with its yearly profit results. Australian business

man is appearing in over tonight, facing extradition

over the Madeleine Pulver

collar bomb incident in north

Sydney a fortnight ago. FBI

agents arrested Paul Douglas

Peters at his ex-wife's home in Louisville, Kentucky. As Ben

Worsley reports, it was a joint

operation with NSW police. Of

all places, this is where the

NSW police found the man thab

have been looking for. We are

here to announce the arrest Paul Douglas Peters. At about

4p.m. this afternoon Mr Peters was arrested without

a 50-year-old father of three - incident. Peter Peter Peter is

Paul Douglas Peters is a 50-year-old father of three. He

is a Sydney resident who

commutes to Tuesday. To the

US. We will allege the suspect

we arrested was responsible home. Peters became a suspect entering the Pulver

after leaving Australia a week

ago, five days after Madeleine

Pulver's ordeal. There links between the suspect and

the family, however no direct

links. News of the arrest

brought immediate relief to the

Pulver family. These past two

weeks have been a difficult

time for us. We are hopeful

this development marks the

beginning of the end for this traumatic ordeal for the family. Police say the evidence is circumstantial compelling. They have revealed

some of what was allegeedly in

the note left around the

teenage est's neck. There was financial demands made and there needed to be follow-up contact and further instructions would be

given. Paul Peters is due to

appear before a las lass lass

court where - Louisville

court. Their professional, truly amazing and support and dedication has been

inspirational. Justice swiftly follows crime. That said, this

story has a long way to run. We are

are finally getting more

details about the man charged

with murdering Daniel Morcombe.

His name is Brett Peter Cowan. He

He is 41, a resident of Perth

and he was named as a person of

interest during the inquest into the teenager's

disappearance. That information

can now be Queensland coroner lifted a

suppression order late today. James Kelly reports. The

coroner was in charge of the

police to charge the inquest that reportedly led

41-year-old man. Late this afternoon, Michael Barnes was

asked by lawyers for media

outlets to rule on outlets to rule on whether releasing the man's name would

be prejudicial to his court

case. He granted their request.

Brisbane Magistrates Court Brett Peter Cowan faced the

yesterday charged with the

murder of Daniel Morcombe

almost eight years ago. At

coronial inniest - inquest into

the teenager's death earlier

this year, the 41-year-old was

described as a paedophile who had been jailed

for molesting two young boys in

separate daylight attacks in Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Territory. Police told the

inquest Cowan admitted to driving past the site where

Daniel Morcombe was last seen

but he said he had nothing to

do with the teenager's

disappearance. Around the Glass

House Mountains, the search for

Daniel Morcombe's remains continued. We all hope they

find Daniel. 45 SES volunteers

and 20 police are combing the

property neex next to the

Bruce Highway at Beerwah. The

main search area is the size of

three back yard swimming

pools. I ask people to be

patient and accept it could

take months and months. The

search is made more difficult

because the area was flooded

over summer. It is possible that, despite all of our

efforts, we made end up finding

little or no evidence at the

investigation will be widened. The search area does

form part of a tidal area and

it may well be necessary to

extends the search area through

to the coast. The Commissioner

says finding Daniel Morcombe's

body is now the service's

highest priority. It is the

anniversary Julia Gillard would

rather forget. Trouble is, her

opponents won't let her. They

have turned out in force in

Canberra to mark the day 12

months ago when the Prime

Minister ruled out a carbon tax. Despite protests, Ms Gillard promised

to deliver the carbon pricing

scheme she unveiled last month.

Here is Mark Simkin. They're as

mad as hell. We want an

election. Got even madder when

the carbon tax supporter showed

up. You're the people that

elected this bloody bitch

in. Thousands of people brought

themselves, their placards and their frustrations to Parliament.. Lashing tax. This is socialism on a

scale we have never seen before

in our life. . Lashing the

Prime Minister. Ditch the

witch! Some even lashed each

other. Ditch the witch! Ditch

the witch! . Get that down. Get that down. You are assaulting me. Tony Abbott

distanced himself from some

placards as well. I can see a

lot of signs. agree with. Some signs I don't

necessarily agree with. The

argument moved inside. Good to

see you. Into the first

Question Time since Labor

released the details of the carbon plan. If the Prime

Minister won't call an

election, will she at least

apologise for trying to win the

last election on the basis of

an ugly lie. Hear hear. When I

said if words that the Leader of the Opposition has referred

to in this place and beyond, I meant meant every word of it, Mr

Speaker. One year after Julia

Gillard made her

promise... There will be no carbon tax under the Government

I lead. The Coalition cooked up

a stunt to highlate the anniversary. The only present

Australians want is no carbon

tax and an election on the

topic. This is the anniversary

of a day of infamy. It is not

going to change the political

climate. The government will introduce

in the middle of next month and

it has the numbers to pass it

by the end of the year. An American Conservative has

weighed into Australia's debate

on same-sex marriage, claiming

paedophiles could one day marry

children if the law is changed.

The author and consultant

Rebecca Hagelin was a keynote

speaker at a conference in

Parliament House organised to

defend traditional marriage.

marriage would open the way for

all sorts of unions. Look for

marriage between adults and

children to be legalised. There is no greater dream for a

paedophile than to be able to

legally claim a child as his

lover. Some Labor and Coalition

MPs joined religious leaders in

trying to head off any change

to the Marriage Act. ACT Labor

politicians have welcomed their

Federal colleagues' decision to

support a Greens bill aimed at

strengthening Territory rights.

Senator Bob Brown's bill would

remove a Federal Minister's power to veto Territory laws.

The Labor Caucus voted to

accept the plan. The Deputy

Chief Minister says it is important people don't confuse

the proposed law with the

separate issues of gay marriage or euthanasia. This decision by the Labor the Labor Caucus relates to fundamental democratic principles a-around how self-government should operate

in the ACT an also in the

Northern Territory. There will still be, because it Constitutional, the ability of

both Houses of Parliament to

override Territory laws but no longer will the executive

simply be able to override a

law. The Bill is set to be

debated by the Senate on

Thursday. Two people are dead,

including a 15-year-old

patient, after a mercy flight

crashed near Horsham in Victoria's west

teenage girl was being flown

home after receiving treatment

in Melbourne for arthritis. The light plane crashed light plane crashed within

minutes of its destination in

Nhill. Remarkably, the girl's

mother survived the crash, though she is severely injured. It was dark and

raining heavily when locals

heard the crash but it was

almost two hours later when

Russell Hunter found the

wreckage in a paddock north of

Horsham. He did what he could to

Julie-Ann Twigg. We tried to

warm her up, as many blankets

as we would found. We had rugs

in the ute. You wouldn't expect anyone to survive that. But the

pilot and the woman's daughter,

Jacinda Twigg, didn't survive.

The 15-year-old was an Angel

Flight patient being chartered

home to Nhill after medical treatment in Melbourne. Jacinda

was a hard-working, caring

girl, very popular. Everybody's

friend. The Yarrawonga pilot,

a volunteer for the charity

which helps to fly sick and

injured children across the

State. He went into the Angel

Flights because he was about to retire and thought that's

something he'd like to do. He upgraded

upgraded his aero plane to do

the flights because he needed a

larger plane for it. Since

2003, 11,300 flights and not a

single incident or mishappen.

It comes as a devastating blow

to us. We obviously thought this

this will never happen this will never happen and it has. Investigators and police

spent hours at the scene today combing through the debris. Inspectors from the Australian

Transport Safety Bureau will spend the rest spend the rest of the week here assessing the wreckage and

speaking to witnesses but it

could be months before they

know what happened here. The investigators will prepare a preliminary report within 30


The NSW Premier has spoken

out against renewable energy

targets, in particular the

spread of wind O'Farrell says if it was up to him, the State Government

wouldn't approve any more. As

I'm told, no new applications

have been lodged. We haven't approved any applications, if I had my way, we wouldn't. During the

the election, the O'Farrell

Government backed the

Government backed the Federal

target of a 20% emissions cut

by 2020. Environment groups are concerned the State Government

may now review its renewable

energy policy. The only way he

is going to implement his 20% target by target by 2020 is to give a big portion to wind power. Late

today a statement from the

Premier said his comments reflected personal view, not

government policy. The first

cattle ship to Indonesia under

new export rules have arrived.

Indonesia correspondent Matt

Brown is at the port. The 4,000

cattle on board this ship will

be unloaded over the next 12

hours or so. They will be

They are sending the cattle to

they have been fattened up for

four months they will be

Indonesia. The

says, by the end of next week, another four abattoirs should

have been approved by the

independent auditors. This will

be a significant for animal welfare but it is a

big job to change the supply

chains and it will take

time. The feedlot operator in

this case says every Australian

animal processed through this

supply chain will be stunned

before it is killed. But stunning is not a mandatory

part of the new Australian

system and many in the industry are worried that, at any time, images

flailing around while it dies

could derail their efforts to rebuild the trade. It has been a particularly violent day in

Iraq with more than 60 people

dying in bomb blasts around the country. The worst attack took

place in the south-eastern city

of Kut where twin bombings

killed 37 people. Deadly

attacks took place in Baghdad,

Diayla and several other areas. It appears coordinated to go off in the

morning and included a

combination of car bombs, IEDs

and suicide Bombers. There has

been no immediate claim of responsibility. Libya's rebels

cameras from covering the rest

of the case. Opposition firtion

figures say the decision is political but some victims' decision. Britain's Prime

Minister has promised a war on

gangs and gang culture in the

wake of last week's riots.

self-ishness, behaving as if your consequences your consequences have no discipline . Crime without punishment, rights without responsibilities, communities without control. So the

Government is getting even

tougher. Possible evictions

none of which impresses the

Opposition. A new policy a day,

knee jerk gimmicks, not through. They won't solve the problem. This was Clarence Row

farewell long-serving Labor politician Clyde Holding. Hundreds of mourners Hundreds of mourners attended the service at the National Gallery of Victoria, including the Prime Minister Julia

edged higher. Westpac's profit

Gold went up a bit but it is

short of last week's peak of

1815. Oil jumped 3% and base metals were metals were steady. The Australian dollar crept up to

104.5 US cents but the overall performance of the currency

today was patchy with the index

up slightly. The Aussie dollar,

gold and the All Ords index

were tracking closely together

until April and then it was

every line to itself. Gold took off, tanked and no-one could decide

about the Australian dollar so

it stayed steady against a

falling US dollar. The minutes

of the last Reserve Bank board

much to report apart from more stuff about global uncertainty.

Of course. Wayne Bennett was mingling with players and

Bennett's case, statistics tell

a story. In 2006, his Broncos

happen. That story shortly but

first to the big shake-up at

Qantas and the announcement it

will slash more than 1,000 jobs

from its international arm. Pilots, cabin crew, engineers

and managers are all in the

firing line. It's not the only

big Australian firm to shedding jobs with OneSteel announcing today 400 workers

are set to go. Shortly I will

be speaking to the Chief
