After debate around whether Matariki should become a public holiday, ACT leader David Seymour said he was "open" to public holidays being scrapped in New Zealand - well, all but Anzac and Waitangi.

He says people should be able to make their own holiday arrangements, rather than the Government telling us when to take the day off.

We want to know your thoughts. Should people be able to make their own holiday arrangements? Or should we leave our holidays as is?

Two more Selwyn communities will soon have their drinking water chlorinated, but most of the district's water will be left alone – at least for now.

The Selwyn District Council last week rejected a plan to chlorinate all of its drinking water following widespread opposition from its 45,000 residents. More than 96 per cent of submissions made to the council were against the proposal.
