POLL: NBR readers verdict on 'Mondayising' public holidays

The bill to "Mondayise" Waitangi and Anzac days is due for its second reading this year.

All public holidays should be "Mondayised" if they fall on a weekend, according to NBR ONLINE subscribers.

In a poll conducted between January 7 and 13, subscribers were asked: Should public holidays be "Mondayised?"

Seventy-one percent of respondents said yes, while 29% disagreed.

The Holidays (Full Recognition of Waitangi Day & Anzac Day) Amendment Bill is due for its second reading this year.

It proposes to "Mondayise" Waitangi and Anzac days, meaning if either falls on a Saturday or Sunday the public holiday will be treated as falling on the following Monday.
