Amend the children’s Act

Comment 6th July 2010

It makes no sense to have laws that say that young people up to age 18 are 'children' if they are still in education, while allowing 16 and 17 year olds to join the armed forces.  If they are children, do we have child soldiers?  Isn't that against international law?

The laws need some standardisation.

Why does this matter?

When people are confused about the law, mistakes get made.  When the law is contradictory, people get confused.
