From John Key’s State of the Nation speech in January:

The Youth Court currently has the power to place young offenders in youth justice residential facilities for a period of up to three months.  Many are released after just two. Last year, long-overdue legislation was tabled to allow these sentences to extend to six months.

Yet Key and National are voting against the government bill which will soon be read for the first time, the Herald reports today.
