- Units affected are those manufactured between September 2020 and November 2020.
- The first six digits of the serial number for the recalled range is: 648735.
- Only use the affected Diono seat as a backless booster seat until replacement units are available.
- Replacement headrests will be available in the next month.

We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern Outlook.

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
