The National Party is considering a policy of fining parents $3000 if their children drop out of school and don't enter further education or training.

Simon Bridges says "The reality is if you're not in work, education or training, you're going to be languishing in a dole queue, and the evidence is potentially for a long time". Do you agree with this policy? Should parents be fined?

The NZ Transport Agency is warning parents and caregivers to be vigilant when purchasing child restraints online, as some restraints currently available do not meet approved safety standards and may not keep children safe in event of a crash.

Child restraints should be labelled with any one of these standards:
- A tick mark (indicates the restraint meets the joint New Zealand/Australian Standard
AS/NZ 1754)
- An 'E' mark (indicates the restraint meets the European Standard ECE 44 or ECE 129) - The number on the circle will vary depending on the country of certification
- Labelling that complies with the United States Standard FMVSS 213. The restraint must also show the New Zealand Standard 'S' mark indicating it is certified for use here

More information about these standards is available here.

Old 1/2 or 5/8 inch iron wall or floor flanges needed

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

You would not believe how hard it is to put up a suspended corner shower rod in a hundred plus year old bathroom.

I’ve got the rods all ready, I just need 3 old flanges. Either 1/2 or 5/8 inch. 5/8 would probably be best, but I’ll take either. If anyone has some.

You would not believe how hard it is to put up a suspended corner shower rod in a hundred plus year old bathroom.

I’ve got the rods all ready, I just need 3 old flanges. Either 1/2 or 5/8 inch. 5/8 would probably be best, but I’ll take either. If anyone has some.

I know some people will say I should get my landlady to deal with it, but I’m happy doing it myself, with her blessing. It’s my home and I enjoy taking care of it, and putting my stamp on it, without changing the character of this grand old lady. (The house not me).

So if you are able to help, I’m happy to pay for the flanges.
