David Seymour wants to scrap a current public holiday to help businesses.

Matariki will be celebrated as a public holiday for the first time on Friday.

The ACT Party leader told The Country the current environment is unfavourable for small businesses.

“You’ve got this increase in minimum wage, you’ve got the extra sick leave, you’ve got the extra public holiday, you’ve got Fair Pay Agreements coming down the track.”
