time to draw a line under the row over Maria Miller 's expenses. It

follows claims that she tried to intimidate the Parliamentary

:00:00.:00:12.

watchdog investigating other. `` her.

:00:13.:00:18.

Welcome to our lookahead to the papers. With me are Vincent Moss and

:00:19.:00:32.

Martin Bentham. Let's have a quick look at the front pages. The Sunday

:00:33.:00:40.

Telegraph reports on reaction to expenses claims by Maria Miller and

:00:41.:00:45.

more detail by `` about the signal from the black box of MH 370. The

:00:46.:00:52.

Mail on Sunday says that 80% of respondents to their survey say that

:00:53.:00:56.

Maria Miller should lose her job. The Observer says it has a document

:00:57.:01:01.

outlining Michael Gove 's strategy on free schools. Independent on

:01:02.:01:07.

Sunday reports on supermarkets encouraging shoppers to waste food.

:01:08.:01:11.

The Sunday Times says the army is considering lifting the ban on women

:01:12.:01:17.

serving in combat units. The Sunday express has search teams on the

:01:18.:01:21.

brink of finding missing flight MH370. The daily Star reports that

:01:22.:01:29.

some feature packages to see England at the World Cup could cost fans

:01:30.:01:41.

?60,000. A real mix of stories coming through tomorrow. Maria

:01:42.:01:47.

Miller dominating the coverage. Let's start with the Sunday

:01:48.:01:51.

express, dedicating almost its entire front page to the missing

:01:52.:01:58.

plane. The picture there of the winner of Of the Voice. A classic

:01:59.:02:13.

newspaper tactic' is around the keyword. Obviously this signal has

:02:14.:02:22.

been detected by the Chinese. It may on not be the black box. Let's hope

:02:23.:02:26.

that it is. It is certainly not definitive. Found suggests it has

:02:27.:02:34.

actually been found but that is not clear. It says that search teams are

:02:35.:02:39.

on the brink of unlocking the mystery. Sadly, they are a bit

:02:40.:02:45.

further away than that. Let's move on to the Observer. A picture there

:02:46.:03:02.

of able Seaman Stefanie went. Just that picture gives some sense of the

:03:03.:03:06.

scale of the search. How do you find the black box? She has these

:03:07.:03:16.

binoculars. It is not in the right area, this ship. The Chinese are in

:03:17.:03:21.

a different area. A vast ocean, Perak binoculars, you might find

:03:22.:03:27.

some debris but yes, it seems ridiculous. You hope that they have

:03:28.:03:35.

foundered, for the sake of those passengers. There will not get their

:03:36.:03:46.

ones back. The Observer also reports on Michael Gove, the education

:03:47.:03:51.

Secretary, and in particular some paperwork that he would not have

:03:52.:03:57.

wanted them to see. It is a story that they are claiming that they

:03:58.:04:03.

have a leaked document which suggests that his key education

:04:04.:04:10.

policy is failing. Free schools have hit the headlines and done badly in

:04:11.:04:15.

the message seems to be, particularly in the run`up to an

:04:16.:04:19.

election, that if there is a problem step in fast and sort it out. What

:04:20.:04:25.

is the problem with free schools? There has been a couple of

:04:26.:04:29.

high`profile failures. It's depends on your political view. The Labour

:04:30.:04:36.

Party did not like the fact that they are independently run. The

:04:37.:04:41.

practical problem that this is talking about is that they operate

:04:42.:04:46.

in temporary sites which leads to instability, new, inexperienced

:04:47.:04:57.

trusts. The head teachers can change so it is in stable. `` unstable.

:04:58.:05:05.

There are plenty of free schools that have not gone wrong so far and

:05:06.:05:10.

some seem to be doing quite well so... That is why I asked you,

:05:11.:05:14.

because you are an impartial journalist. It is taking two or

:05:15.:05:19.

three years to set up a school and the children they are guinea pigs.

:05:20.:05:26.

Michael Gove is determined that these will succeed at all costs and

:05:27.:05:33.

sometimes in a school is failing the best course of action is to take

:05:34.:05:37.

drastic action. This is not as scandalous as people might like it's

:05:38.:05:51.

to be. With an existing school you have quality control mechanisms

:05:52.:05:53.

designed to pick up schools are now failing so there is a method that.

:05:54.:05:58.

But there is not that method there for these free schools. Clearly, you

:05:59.:06:04.

want problems to be sorted out instantly if your kids are involved.

:06:05.:06:08.

The Sunday Times reports that women may get the right to fight on the

:06:09.:06:15.

frontline. Some remarks from one of the top generals in the UK. The army

:06:16.:06:23.

should look like more the rest of society, he is saying. We have had

:06:24.:06:28.

this issue with minority communities and he said we should look at women

:06:29.:06:34.

on the frontline. It is something that should be considered, other

:06:35.:06:39.

countries have done it. It seems a sensible idea but I do not get the

:06:40.:06:42.

sense that this is imminent. On the other hand, there should be no

:06:43.:06:58.

objection down the line to this if there is a debate about the ability

:06:59.:07:02.

of women to pass physical tests. That may be the case but there are

:07:03.:07:09.

some which will definitely pass. That is very thin ice. Even the

:07:10.:07:14.

correspondent adds that his intervention will lead to the debate

:07:15.:07:18.

of women to pass some of the gruelling physical tests required.

:07:19.:07:23.

There might be some people who cannot pass it as there are men who

:07:24.:07:27.

cannot, but there will be some who will reach the threshold and be able

:07:28.:07:35.

to do it. Is he warns about risks to team cohesion, which is a polite way

:07:36.:07:41.

of saying that might be fights. Diesel is deadlier than petrol

:07:42.:07:45.

apparently. Years of official efforts to encourage motorists to

:07:46.:07:49.

switch to diesel cars have backfired. As a cyclist, I am

:07:50.:07:53.

conscious of this because one problem is particular to in the air.

:07:54.:07:57.

One of the causes of that is the prevalence of digital `` diesel

:07:58.:08:04.

engines. A lot of the recent pollution is to do with the Saharan

:08:05.:08:08.

dust but one of the day today problems is the particular its and

:08:09.:08:14.

nitrogen and outside coming from diesel engines. The Times has links

:08:15.:08:19.

to the recent spot very cleverly which has little to do with diesel

:08:20.:08:24.

what, of course, it is highlighting that for years we were encouraged to

:08:25.:08:28.

switch to diesel and now it looks as if that was wrong.

:08:29.:08:38.

It is now more expensive than petrol. It didn't used to be. Let's

:08:39.:08:50.

move on to the Independent. It always tries to lead with something

:08:51.:08:53.

a bit different and this will shock a lot of people. According to them,

:08:54.:08:58.

the West throws away 220 million tonnes of food per year and that is

:08:59.:09:04.

as much as is produced in sub`Saharan Africa. We are talking

:09:05.:09:08.

about a huge amount of food wasted. There was another report about the

:09:09.:09:13.

amount we throw away in our bins. It makes the point that we are

:09:14.:09:22.

encouraged to buy too much and that buy one get one free deals. It is

:09:23.:09:29.

all there tempting you to buy more. It also highlights that farmers, a

:09:30.:09:34.

lot of the waste is being pushed onto their books because the

:09:35.:09:39.

supermarkets are cancelling orders at the last minute or, because of

:09:40.:09:43.

the penalty system, are encouraging farmers to produce but therefore

:09:44.:09:47.

they then have too much and they have to get rid of it because they

:09:48.:09:52.

cannot sell it. That is all contributed. This is a report from a

:09:53.:09:59.

committee of peers, and the controversial element is that it is

:10:00.:10:02.

saying that supermarkets should abolish buy one get one free deals.

:10:03.:10:10.

But what is the difference between a use by dates and sell by dates? Food

:10:11.:10:16.

is often edible long past its sell by date. As long as you are not

:10:17.:10:23.

pregnant or vulnerable medically, you should think about eating it.

:10:24.:10:41.

Maria Miller. Many of the papers continue to ask whether the minister

:10:42.:10:49.

should resign after having to apologise about her expenses. The

:10:50.:10:52.

Sunday Telegraph says that Mr Miller should go. The mail on Sunday makes

:10:53.:11:08.

it more blunt. Sakho. `` Sack Her! The Sunday Times says that MPs

:11:09.:11:15.

cannot be trusted on expenses. That was what led to a coalition

:11:16.:11:23.

government. That is not the prime ministers saying this. I realise

:11:24.:11:27.

that. It is the chairman of the parliamentary expenses authority who

:11:28.:11:33.

is making that obvious point. The Prime Minister will be thinking that

:11:34.:11:37.

it sends its rural message that yet again we have had an example of MPs

:11:38.:11:48.

in trouble with expenses. They have been let off by other MPs. He has

:11:49.:11:53.

said that MPs must not be allowed to mark their own homework. He has to

:11:54.:11:59.

get that trust back. Finally, the daily Star on Sunday. ?60,000

:12:00.:12:09.

tickets for England matches in the World Cup. That has to be a

:12:10.:12:15.

package, right? They are talking about corporate hospitality for

:12:16.:12:22.

group games but that is a huge sum. They will run many stories about the

:12:23.:12:28.

World Cup. The final is ?15,000 if you want to buy a ticket. We have no

:12:29.:12:33.

idea who will be in the final, well we have a fair idea. Ticket prices,

:12:34.:12:40.

even at that price, are huge. There has to be some concern that there is

:12:41.:12:44.

not many fans going to Brazil because of the overall costs

:12:45.:12:53.

involved. People tend to find their way there. We have a lot of

:12:54.:12:58.

dedicated fans. Brazil is also a nice country to go to. Fans might

:12:59.:13:05.

have a lot of spare time to enjoy them. They have made it difficult

:13:06.:13:11.

for the other papers because they have set the bar at ?60,000. Thank

:13:12.:13:21.

you to both of you. Stay with us here on BBC News. More on the search

:13:22.:13:27.

for each 370 and news that Australian authorities confirmed a

:13:28.:13:31.

signal detected by a traineeship is consistent with an aircraft black

:13:32.:13:36.

box. Coming up next, the film Review.

:13:37.:13:54.

Hello and welcome to the Film Review and BBC News, what have we got? As I

:13:55.:14:03.

am sure you know, this is the week that Noah opens, the great big

:14:04.:14:05.

controversial, or is it biblical,
