That's here on BBC News in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:21.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead at what the papers

:00:22.:00:24.

With me are Tim Montgomerie from The Times and James Millar

:00:25.:00:30.

Tomorrow's front pages starting with

:00:31.:00:38.

The Financial Times leads with the news that many global banks may

:00:39.:00:40.

no longer be able to count on the support of the US Federal Reserve

:00:41.:00:48.

interview with the Defence Secretary Michael Fallon in which he says

:00:49.:00:57.

British fighter planes and surveillance aircraft are being used

:00:58.:01:03.

in the fight against the Islamic State fighters in Iraq.

:01:04.:01:08.

The Guardian also leads on that story ` below a picture of

:01:09.:01:14.

Britain's successful 4 by 100 metre women's relay squad.

:01:15.:01:16.

The Metro's front page is devoted to the group of Afghan Sikhs found

:01:17.:01:19.

inside a shipping container in Tilbury Docks ` the paper calls

:01:20.:01:22.

The Express says the Prime Minister will announce

:01:23.:01:25.

the creation of specialist welfare teams designed to target what it

:01:26.:01:27.

Those are some of the front pages. We will start off with the Guardian

:01:28.:01:41.

and the story about Iraq which is dominating the newspapers. Tim, do

:01:42.:01:48.

you want to start? Britain its bands role in a rock. We all expected

:01:49.:02:00.

this. `` Iraq. It is a very pressing humanitarian tragedy, the Yazidi had

:02:01.:02:06.

been trapped on the mountain. People thought Islamic state was a threat

:02:07.:02:11.

and hoped the intervention would go further to stop this barbaric

:02:12.:02:14.

terrorist organisation potentially spreading and having the kind of

:02:15.:02:17.

influence that in lard and could only have dreamt of. Also people who

:02:18.:02:23.

are critical of any intervention in this region is that this happened.

:02:24.:02:30.

Humanitarian intervention would be the pretext for wider involvement. I

:02:31.:02:34.

personally regard the Islamic state is a huge threat to our security and

:02:35.:02:39.

the security of the region and I'm glad we are taking this proactive

:02:40.:02:44.

role. Should Parliament be recalled? Should our government be doing this

:02:45.:02:49.

without our MPs having an opportunity to debate it? The Prime

:02:50.:02:54.

Minister gave his opinion in the newspaper today. He gave an opinion.

:02:55.:02:59.

It is interesting about Parliament being recalled, Britain is expanding

:03:00.:03:03.

its role, Britain having a mission in Iraq. Nowhere has this been set

:03:04.:03:08.

out exactly what the role or mission is. There is the usual fear of

:03:09.:03:15.

It may be nice to have Parliament It may be nice to have

:03:16.:03:25.

recalled to set out what we are recalled to set out what we are

:03:26.:03:35.

doing, what we are trying to prove. Are you getting the sense there is

:03:36.:03:37.

growing pressure to recall growing pressure to recall

:03:38.:03:43.

Parliament? He has said it is not for this sort of thing. My sense is

:03:44.:03:44.

intervene, he wants to intervene intervene, he wants to intervene

:03:45.:03:44.

quite dramatically, a year ago he quite dramatically, a year ago he

:03:45.:03:45.

wanted that in Syria. He doesn't want to get too far ahead of public

:03:46.:03:53.

opinion. Where he wants to be is where the public is demanding

:03:54.:03:54.

action. They are seeing stories of people being buried alive, terrible

:03:55.:03:58.

abuses. The public will say please, act. Then if we do see a big

:03:59.:04:04.

expansion in the role, it would be hard for him to ignore those calls

:04:05.:04:10.

for a recall. We are quite close to Parliament coming back in two

:04:11.:04:14.

weeks. At the end of August they came back last year and the Prime

:04:15.:04:18.

Minister got beaten. He does not want to lose two years in a wrong in

:04:19.:04:24.

very similar circumstances. `` in a row. I do detect a feeling in this

:04:25.:04:35.

article, there is more coming in tomorrow's papers. You get the

:04:36.:04:50.

feeling that the pieces are being into position. Indeed, we will see

:04:51.:05:05.

papers when we are back in an hour. papers when we are back in an hour.

:05:06.:05:16.

Onto the Daily Telegraph. Tomorrow marks the one month countdown to the

:05:17.:05:26.

Scottish independence referendum. In the Daily Telegraph, shadow role for

:05:27.:05:31.

big beast, Alistair Darling after Scottish vote. If the no campaign is

:05:32.:05:38.

successful, Alistair Darling will be rewarded. We have had so many

:05:39.:05:41.

landmarks along the way, but it is interesting with a month to go, the

:05:42.:05:44.

no side is beginning to talk about what happens after the vote. We had

:05:45.:05:51.

whispers about what would happen if there was no wind. We are beginning

:05:52.:05:55.

to talk about Alistair Darling. This is catching up with my story from 12

:05:56.:05:59.

months ago. Ed Miliband hinted there may be a role for Alistair Darling,

:06:00.:06:02.

big job. That will grow as we get big job. That will grow as we get

:06:03.:06:05.

closer to the vote. Will this story upset the voters? The big danger for

:06:06.:06:08.

the no camp is complacency. If it does not look like they are looking

:06:09.:06:12.

at what will happen after the referendum, if they are expecting to

:06:13.:06:22.

win, that is a dangerous place to be. The Scottish vote will say do

:06:23.:06:25.

not take this for granted. This expression the big beast! LAUGHTER

:06:26.:06:31.

Tories do fear him, he is one of the Labour people that they genuinely

:06:32.:06:36.

fear. The Tory message in the next general election is going to be dogs

:06:37.:06:44.

bark, cat 's meow, Labour will increase tax. They can pimp that on

:06:45.:06:54.

Ed Balls, he is associated with the worst of the Brown years. `` they

:06:55.:07:02.

can pin that. Whereas Alistair Darling is a reassuring figure. If

:07:03.:07:14.

he was put in as Shadow Chancellor, it would be a brave thing for Ed

:07:15.:07:27.

Miliband to do. If he is a big success in the Scottish referendum,

:07:28.:07:34.

he could be exactly the sort of person who may change the game at

:07:35.:07:44.

the next election. The Daily Telegraph, the elderly in care, they

:07:45.:07:48.

must be given home comforts. This is a story about care homes having to

:07:49.:07:57.

furnish rooms with residents own curtains and furniture in an attempt

:07:58.:08:11.

to civilise institutions. It may be difficult in practice. That is why

:08:12.:08:20.

you have the inverted commas. It is a very good idea, it will appear to

:08:21.:08:24.

a lot of people. `` it will appeal. More of us realise we will end up in

:08:25.:08:32.

homes for what ever reason. The question is how do you do it? It

:08:33.:08:42.

will cost money. The whole subject of care is becoming increasingly

:08:43.:08:45.

important to people. Whenever we covered this story at the times, it

:08:46.:08:59.

read issues. Because of the stories read issues. Because of the stories

:09:00.:09:04.

we have had in recent months, the BBC has been reporting on this.

:09:05.:09:06.

goes on in care homes. They see like goes on in care homes. They see like

:09:07.:09:08.

factories, the residents in them, factories, the residents in them,

:09:09.:09:10.

the people in them are just numbers. This initiative of trying to turn

:09:11.:09:12.

the bedrooms that people live in into something more like a home, it

:09:13.:09:14.

has the features of the homes they left, it sounds very humanising. At

:09:15.:09:17.

a time when there is so much fear, Norman Lamb is a very established

:09:18.:09:24.

government figure and I hope he can deliver this as he is promising to.

:09:25.:09:27.

looking at the new robust inspection looking at the new robust inspection

:09:28.:09:29.

regime coming into force in October. There will be a real sense of an

:09:30.:09:32.

individual 's home. I personally do not believe that people who work in

:09:33.:09:38.

care homes want them to feel like prisons. I am sure given the money

:09:39.:09:41.

and the circumstances, most people would love to be able to turn them

:09:42.:09:48.

into homely places. How do you do it? Onto the metro, a headline

:09:49.:09:52.

reveals, stowaways in a metal coughing. `` coffin will stop this

:09:53.:10:07.

is a horrendous story. Often it is economic migrants. People just

:10:08.:10:14.

wanting a better life. This seems to be a more desperate case of Sikhs

:10:15.:10:19.

Afghanistan potentially fleeing for their lives, lots of young children

:10:20.:10:25.

in this mess of coffin. One person did die in it. The others are

:10:26.:10:31.

incredibly unwell. The British public are quite interesting on

:10:32.:10:38.

these issues. You would find a lot of opposition to immigration, but

:10:39.:10:42.

when people are fleeing persecution, they feel differently.

:10:43.:10:51.

This is not the right way to come in and it will be in Sting have a Home

:10:52.:10:55.

Office deals with it. That will be the next few days headlines. What is

:10:56.:10:57.

happening to this group? You have this debate about immigration and

:10:58.:11:02.

general anti`immigration feeling. To put yourself in a container like

:11:03.:11:06.

that and trouble`free and a half thousand miles, you are fleeing

:11:07.:11:14.

something horrific. `` and travel 3500 miles. There are a lot of

:11:15.:11:20.

definitions it covers, but these are the real people that sometimes get

:11:21.:11:28.

forgotten in the immigration debate. Back to our fast story in a rock.

:11:29.:11:35.

France, Canada, America, they are taking in a lot of immigrants and we

:11:36.:11:39.

should be doing more. `` our first story in Iraq. India beaten in three

:11:40.:11:47.

days, you would not want a ticket for tomorrow. We have the cricket

:11:48.:11:54.

win on the front of the FT, the relay runners doing incredibly well

:11:55.:11:58.

on the front of the Guardian and we have the women's rugby world

:11:59.:12:03.

champions on the front of the Telegraph. As a Manchester United

:12:04.:12:08.

supporter, I did not have such a good weekend, everything else has

:12:09.:12:12.

been good. You are following football, you should be following

:12:13.:12:18.

athletics rugby, cricket! Thank you for that. That is it for the papers

:12:19.:12:21.

this hour. Thank you,

:12:22.:12:26.
