Mixed reactions trail photo of New Zealand’s speaker feeding baby while presiding over plenary

Photos of the Speaker of New Zealand’s parliament, Trevor Mallard, feeding a lawmaker’s baby on the floor of the chamber has garnered diverse reactions on Twitter.

Mallard held and fed the one-month-old son of lawmaker Tāmati Coffey who just returned from paternity leave while presiding over a debate.

Mallard had shared the photo on his Twitter handle with the caption, “Normally the Speaker’s chair is only used by Presiding Officers but today a VIP took the chair with me.

“Congratulations @tamaticoffey and Tim on the newest member of your family.”

While some Twitteratti were quick to praise the Speaker for being thoughtful a few think it was unprofessional to bring a child to the plenary since it’s not a “daycare centre.”
