John Lawrence SC - The Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the NT - Report and Recommendations

Morning host Peter Butler caught-up with eminent Territory barrister John Lawrence SC who says that, in the main, he is happy with the findings of the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory and that the recommendations have now put the NT back on keel with what the government should have been doing ten years ago and since.
