Lobby groups for the business sector are protesting against the Government’s plans to keep Aucklanders locked in the city even if the alert levels move down.

The Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA), Business New Zealand and the Auckland Business Chamber say they were taken completely by surprise by the plan to protest.

EMA Head of Advocacy Alan McDonald joined Heather du Plessis-Allan.
