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.

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.
