How long should we have to wait for a meeting with our MP?

On 2 October I made an appointment to meet with my MP to discuss pending legislation which concerned me. I was asked formy reason and then 28 October was the earliest time available
.
On 22 October the MP's's office telephoned me and cancelled the appointment. No explanation for the cancellation was offered, they seemed surprised when I asked for another appointment and after some humming I now have 18 November.

So 2 October to 18 November......6 weeks and 5 days

My MP is a first term MP with no ministerial duties and I wonder if the delays are deliberate so as to delay a meeting until it becomes pointless as the legislation will have been debated and passed.

Hi Neighbours!

Better Later Life takes a fresh look at what is required to ensure New Zealand is a great place to age and achieve the vision of making sure older people lead valued, connecting and fulfilling lives.

The strategy's key areas for action will be used to guide the priorities of what needs to happen in our action plan.

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

❌ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

🔥 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

💦 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

👧 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

🧰 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

📞 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

🐱 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

🐮 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

🌿 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.
