NT Minister concedes he's part of juvenile detention issue

NORTHERN Territory Chief Minister Adam Giles has conceded he is "part of the problem" with the NT's child protection system.

Speaking at the second leaders debate ahead of the NT election on August 27, Mr Giles said the Territory had left too many children in vulnerable situations.

"I don't think we protect children enough," he said.

"I think we are reluctant as policy makers, as politicians, to make tough choices and decisions in the best interests of kids. I'm part of the problem because I'm sitting at the top of the tree and I'm not giving the guidance to DCF (the Department of Children and Families)."
