Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard has unveiled a plan for new office spaces for MP’s.

The plan would involve three new buildings and could cost taxpayers up to $250 million. 

At the moment office space is very squashed. This comes after the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake which saw Bowen House, which used to house many of them, deemed unsafe.

However, yesterday many MP’s were not happy with the new plan. In light-hearted moment MP’s were asked for what they wanted.

Jacinda Ardern said she wanted “everyone to have office which isn’t earthquake-prone.”

National MP Matt Doocey said he wanted a “group hug room.”

“A karaoke booth for one,” said Labour’s Dr Ayesha Verrall. 

“Waterslides!” said National MP Simon Bridges.

“A Coke Zero fountain tap,” said National MP Erica Stanford. 

“Decent coffee would be good,” said National’s Chris Bishop.
