National Radio 8am Bulletin

Labour Spending – Aids Tests For Immigrants – Americas Cup – EgyptAir Crash – Guns – Train Fatality

LABOUR SPENDING: Labour says it can afford its promises. Dr Cullen says National can’t promise cuts and increased social spending. Bill English says that Labour is already planning to spend lots and Jim Anderton hasn’t put in his bid yet.

AIDS TESTS FOR IMMIGRANTS: The AIDs foundation says compulsory HIV tests for immigrants and long stay visitors in NZ could have the opposite effect as intended, as they could lull Nzers into a false sense of security.

AMERICAS CUP: Young America syndicate says it is determined to get back on the water after its boat folded in half yesterday.

EGYPTAIR CRASH: The US Navy has recovered one of the two flight recorders from the EgyptAir flight 990 that crashed into the Atlantic last week. The box is a little damaged.

GUNS: The police are warning people not to buy guns for self-defence. Self-defence is not a valid reason to own a gun, police say.

TRAIN FATALITY: Police have reopened the train line near New Lynne after a man was killed by a train.
