AAP logoAAP 1/08/2016

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has promised to put youth detention and child protection on the agenda at the next COAG meeting of state and territory heads.

Following revelations of abuse at Northern Territory youth detention centres, Mr Turnbull said while a royal commission into the mistreatment wouldn't be national, it should be looked at.

"I think its important that heads of government, and chief ministers, discuss that at the next COAG," he told ABC radio on Monday.
