New Zealand Herald

TELECOM AND THERESA GATTUNG: The New Zealand Herald today leads with a report that New Zealand's biggest company, Telecom, is pushing workers to throw away redundancy and superannuation rights as part of a deal it calls the "partnership of the millennium". The story is accompanied by a huge picture of new CEO Theresa Gattung with the headline "She's young, brainy, tough - and seriously well paid." Another report records that Theresa Gattung, new head of a $15 billion enterprise, may be a relative chicken in terms of corporate experience, but don't dare question if she has the maturity to fill the role.

Also on the front page:

- FAMILY PLANNING BOOKLET: a report that Family Planning claims the information in an abortion booklet is too emotive, but Christian Heritage says it is vital women have a chance to read it;

- PRINCE PHILLIP: a report that Royal Aides held their breath when the gaffe-prone Duke of Edinburgh asked a worker at a Scottish brewery what was in the vats;

Inside Headlines:

- Petrol conspiracy check wanted;
- Clark cries foul as Nats fill arts job;
- Troop training will not suffer;
- I've done my best - Mike Moore.

DEFENCE DISCIPLINE: The editorial suggests that Max Bradford's response to the Masters of Business fiasco may have been a case of overkill.
