Christmas gathering restrictions to be removed under Deputy Premier’s proposal
Deputy Premier John Barilaro is leading a push to have household gathering limits at least doubled in time for Christmas.
He told Jim Wilson raising the cap from 20 to 40 people, or eliminating it altogether, would be “a reward for our citizens for doing the right thing”.
“The truth is, if we don’t stay in line with where the community’s going to go, this could actually happen [anyway].
“We’d rather … put a framework in place so we can best manage it.”
Mr Barilaro said he’s “confident” the rest of the NSW coalition will get on board – with the exception of Police Minister David Elliott, he joked.
“I’ve had some colleagues have a go at me today because they don’t want their in-laws over!”
