A Government support package which aims to revitalise Auckland by issuing families vouchers for local attractions and events has been panned by the hospitality sector, which says it's been "left to die". 

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced yesterday that Aucklanders will be offered 100,000 vouchers this summer for a range of activities in a bid to "reactivate" the city as it shakes off the shackles of nearly four months in lockdown. 

But restaurant, bars and businesses in the hospitality industry will not be included in the scheme. 

MP for Auckand Central Chlöe Swarbrick joined Kate Hawkesby.
