Labor MPs set to talk strategy

Labor MPs will get a chance to air their concerns with the party's strategic direction when they meet in Canberra on Wednesday afternoon.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard initiated the strategic caucus meeting in a bid to generate new policy ideas.

Former Labor leader Kevin Rudd was widely criticised from within the party for centralising control in his office and not listening to colleagues.

Labor's left faction spokesman Senator Doug Cameron has raised concerns that strict rules within the party give members the equivalent of a "political lobotomy", and risked turning them into "zombies".

In addition there are fears that Labor is leaking votes to the Greens and could regain ground by adopting more progressive policies such as gay marriage.

But other sections of the party believe it should take a more conservative approach.

Labor MPs are expected to discuss a broad range of issues including social policy, education and training, infrastructure and climate change.

Abbott under pressure on IR policy

Coalition MPs have urged leader Tony Abbott to start work on an industrial relations policy, amid concerns the opposition is being too negative.

Mr Abbott on Tuesday addressed a buoyant final meeting of the year of coalition MPs in Canberra.

He told the meeting the Liberals and Nationals could look back on the year with a degree of satisfaction, having toppled a Labor prime minister, badly damaging another and depriving a first-term government of its majority.

Mr Abbott said the government had squandered the Howard government's surplus to 'buy the polls' and starting to 'lean to the Greens' in terms of policies such as a carbon tax and gay marriage.

It had been a 'diabolical year' for Labor, and government members will want to assume the 'foetal position' over Christmas, Mr Abbott said.

But he said the party should not simply be negative and in the months ahead would develop a tax policy.

However, a backbencher told the meeting the coalition was in danger of only doing 'half the job' by defining what it opposed.

The unnamed MP evoked former prime minister Sir Robert Menzies' 1942 'forgotten people' speeches which gave momentum to the formation of the Liberal Party by championing the middle class as 'the strivers, the planners, the ambitious ones'.

The MP told the party room the coalition needed to be on the front foot, talking about core Liberal Party values such as changes to unfair dismissal laws.

Mr Abbott responded by saying the coalition supported a 'free and flexible workplace', under a system where workers were more productive and businesses were more profitable.

But the coalition leader - who during the election declared Work Choices 'dead, buried and cremated' - warned the party room not to get ahead of the game on workplace relations.

Smoke in cabin forces plane back to Sydney

An Air Canada plane has landed safely after being forced to return to Sydney Airport because of smoke in the cabin.

The plane landed shortly after 12.10pm (AEST), a spokesman for the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) said.

It had left Sydney Airport about 10.30am (AEST) for Vancouver and Toronto.

"Air Canada reported smoke in the cabin and conducted a fuel dump," the ATSB spokesman said.

The airline's general manager for Australia and New Zealand, Jeannie Foster, has played down the return to Sydney.

"We don't class this as an emergency, or as an incident. It's just normal process and normal procuedures," Ms Foster told ABC 24.

"It wasn't considered an emergency. There was no emergency landing. It was a normal landing as it would every other day."

Ms Foster says the plane, with 262 passengers on board, turned back when smoke was noticed in the rear galley.

"One of the crew noticed smoke in the galley, possibly from an oven. The captain took all safety precautions and turned the airplane back," she said.

She says the Boeing 777 is less than five years old, but was unable to say how much fuel was dumped before the landing, or where.

"Because this aircraft was going to Vancauver, it's a 15-hour flight, the plane was very heavily loaded with fuel, so natural process is to dump fuel before landing," Ms Foster said.

The plane resumed its journey to Vancouver after the passengers were allowed to reboard after an inspection by fire crews.

The ATSB says the incident will be investigated further.

Overseas students get easier entry, working visas.
The Sydney Morning Herald
September 23, 2011
Jen Rosenberg

ENTRY requirements for foreign students will be relaxed and short-term visas will be available for those who wish to work after completing their university studies in an overhaul intended to revive the tertiary sector announced yesterday.

The government response to Michael Knight's report, Strategic Review of the Student Visa Program 2011, aims to increase Australia's competitiveness to students whose numbers have dropped off recently due to strict visa requirements, the strong dollar and the perception of an unwelcome atmosphere.

Mr Knight's 41 recommendations will be accepted, some with amendments, said Senator Chris Evans, the Minister for Tertiary Education, and the Immigration Minister, Chris Bowen, at a joint announcement yesterday.

Hitting the books ... entry requirements for foreign students will be relaxed and short-term visas will be more available.

The government response to Michael Knight's report, Strategic Review of the Student Visa Program 2011, aims to increase Australia's competitiveness to students whose numbers have dropped off recently due to strict visa requirements, the strong dollar and the perception of an unwelcome atmosphere.

Mr Knight's 41 recommendations will be accepted, some with amendments, said Senator Chris Evans, the Minister for Tertiary Education, and the Immigration Minister, Chris Bowen, at a joint announcement yesterday.

Mr Evans said the education sector, Australia's third largest export industry, was also a major contributor to the economy, but that the visa system and high price of the currency had made the sector uncompetitive.

''We've been keen to do what we can to assist them to be competitive and so we think these changes will very much assist them in the international market,'' he said.

The main recommendation calls for ''streamlined visa processing'': treating all prospective university students as a low-risk regardless of what country they come from, loosening constraints on how much financial backing they have, and determining whether they are a genuine student and plan to stay only on a temporary basis, that is without an expectation of migration.

Other key recommendations are to reduce the English prerequisite for those enrolling in intense language studies, and to offer graduates a two-to-four year working visa, depending on the level of qualification.

''The absence of a clearly defined post-study work rights entitlement puts Australian universities at a very serious disadvantage compared to some of our major competitor countries,'' the report said.

The university and business sectors were unanimous in their support for the report.

"The value of international education to Australia extends well beyond immediate economic returns by delivering significant social and diplomatic benefits, particularly within our region," said Graham Bradley, the president of the Business Council of Australia.

Dr Glenn Withers, the CEO of Universities Australia, said the report addressed the difficulties of attracting and retaining foreign students, whose numbers had dived in recent years.

''In this sector you've still got the dollar being very detrimental for us and globally the ramifications of the GFC have dampened international student movements. You've got the ongoing issue of how welcoming we are or aren't as a country for students. How long that damage will take to be overcome is an issue for us, however, the tone of this report will help offset that.''

The emphasis on growth was encouraging, said Arfa Noor, the president of the Council of International Students Australia, but only if it provided enough infrastructure for foreign students.

''They want to make sure there is ongoing support, social integration, and social inclusion for the students and not just focus on getting them here.''

То есть в связи с уменьшением числа студентов намечаются ослабление ограничений на получение университетских студенческих виз, в том числе финансовые требования и уровень английского.

а вот это что означает, не совсем понятно?
а вообще - послабления для будущих студентов, в основном? а для тех, кто закончил вуз вернут бриджинг визы?
