Kōrero: Referendums

The 1967 referendum

This film clip deals with the two referendums of 23 September 1967. One asked whether licensing hours should be extended beyond 6 p.m. closing. A majority of 64.4% of voters supported later closing, and the notorious 'six o'clock swill' ended after half a century. The second referendum asked whether the parliamentary term should be extended to four years. A majority of 68.1% of voters opted to keep the status quo – three years.
