New Zealand On Air has been slammed, over the awarding of $200,000 dollars for  a documentary about Green MP Chlöe Swarbrick.

The project, Being Chlöe, looks to explore the political and personal life of New Zealand's youngest MP.

Swarbrick wasn't involved in pitching the project.

Former Arts Minister Chris Finlayson told Kate Hawkesby it's a misuse of taxpayers' money.

He says New Zealand On Air shouldn't show political favouritism and that's exactly what they're doing.
