Kōrero: Referendums

The 1967 referendum

This film clip deals with the two referendums of 23 September 1967. One referendum asked whether licensing hours should be extended from 6 o'clock to 10 o'clock closing. A majority of 64.5% of referendum voters supported 10 o'clock closing, bringing the notorious '6 o'clock swill' to an end. The second referendum asked whether the parliamentary term should be extended from three to four years. A majority of 68% of referendum voters supported keeping the three-year term.
