Chris Luxon says he's just trying to make a point – calling for scrapping a public holiday if we're adding one.
The National leader maintains he's highly supportive of Matariki – and today suggested cancelling Labour Day to make up for it.
But Luxon told Andrew Dickens it doesn't really matter what holiday is cancelled – and he was being a bit 'facetious.'
He also accepts a National Government wouldn't follow his call up – if voted into power.
“Sorry I won’t be able to follow through on the commitment of removing it because once it’s done it’s going to be set in place, all I’m saying is before it gets locked and loaded, before we get committed to it, have we actually thought it through?”
