PM instructs AG on children’s act

Is part of a law being in effect is better than none at all?

That appears to the position of the Prime Minister on an Act meant to better protect the nation's children from criminal harm, but which is yet to have legal effect.

But the Prime Minister says she also wants another law amended to keep those charged with new criminal offences against children under a new 'one strike and you're out' bail rule.
