Prime Minister John Key is defending his Justice and Education ministers from accusations they have mismanaged their responsibilities.
Justice Minister Judith Collins and the Education Minister Hekia Parata have have faced criticism this week from political opponents .
The High Court ruled Ms Parata's decision to close Salisbury School - a special-needs residential school for girls in Nelson - was unlawful and showed a disregard for the greater risk of abuse the girls might face.
Labour Party leader David Shearer said if Ms Parata were in his Cabinet he would sack her.
Mr Shearer also criticised Judith Collins' handling of the report into whether David Bain should get compensation.
But Mr Key has expressed confidence in both ministers.
