The door could soon be open for Auckland MPs to return to Parliament – and for the PM to visit Auckland – as Speaker Trevor Mallard is poised to drop his requirement for a five day isolation period in Wellington, NZ Herald reports. The rule has meant most Auckland MPs have stayed away from Wellington for the past three months. National Party leader Judith Collins said she would be very pleased if Mallard dropped the requirement. “We’ve got a whole lot of MPs who are keen to get back, as does Labour.”
