Age of criminal responsibility set to be raised

Sky News contributor Katherine Deves says you can’t raise the age of youth detention for committing a criminal offence if there are no resources to assist families and young people.

“If they are going to be doing that, there has to be some sort of accountability; there has to be systems in place; they can’t just raise the age and not have the resources to go in there and assist those families and assist those young people,” Ms Deves told Sky News host Paul Murray.
