Cervical Cancer Inquiry - ACC Argument - F16 Deal - Israel Pull Out - Baby Skull - Boat Aground - Team NZ On Tour

CERVICAL CANCER INQUIRY: There are calls to widen the scope of the cervical cancer inquiry after the latest Health Funding Authority figures showing 1,500 women were misdiagnosed by Gisbourne Pathologist, Dr Michael Bottrel. The Prime Minister has indicated she may extend the Ministerial Inquiry into other cancer diagnoses by Dr Bottrel. The Health Funding Authority experts say there is no need to do this.

ACC ARGUMENT: The Prime Minister says the misread cervical smear cases are a compelling argument into keeping ACC in public hands.

F16 DEAL: There is the strongest hint yet that the government will pull out of the F16 deal with two reports given to the government, one from Treasury which says the deal may cost nothing to leave

ISRAEL PULLS OUT: Israel has announced plans to pull out troops of Southern Lebanon after 18 years of occupation by July this year. Syria has not officially reacted to the decision yet.

BABY SKULL: Police and social workers have farewelled a baby, without knowing where it came from after a child’s skull was found in a house in a corner.

BOAT AGROUND: The Maritime Safety Authority is investigating how a fifty foot fishing vessel filled with diesel ran aground on a popular Auckland public beach.

TEAM NZ ON TOUR: The America’s Cup team will fly by army Hercules jets to Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin for local street parades in these city. They arrive in Wellington on Wednesday.
