Posties get extra days off at Xmas

1:05 pm on 16 October 2009

The Government has agreed to a New Zealand Post proposal that there will be no mail delivery on the two Saturdays that fall over the Christmas/ New Year period.

No mail will be delivered on 26 December 2009 or 2 January 2010.

Communications Minister Steven Joyce says there was very little negative feedback in the public consultation on the matter.
