The Panel with Matt Nippert and Chris Wikaira (Part 2)

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 4:34 pm on 25 November 2013

You cannot have a gate with three horizontal support rails in case a child puts a foot up on the middle rail and climbs the gate. Long-service leave for District Court judges has increased from 65 days every five years to 100 days. The entitlement was negotiated in 2008 and took effect in September with no public announcement or discussion.
