Judith Collins is calling on the Government to adopt her party’s Covid policy.  

National's plan includes cutting taxes for small businesses and workers and giving every vaccinated Kiwi a $100 hospitality or tourism voucher.  

Collins told Kerre McIvor the Government needs to outline a plan, as its do-nothing approach is hurting hundreds of thousands of people.  

She says National's plan provides immediate support to businesses which have had to suffer through more than 21 weeks of lockdown. 

“Spending to support these businesses today will pay off for the economy tomorrow but, beyond that, the best thing we can do is to help businesses survive the next 12 months.” 

Collins also outlined a policy that would introduce a two-year small-business tax rate of 17.5 per cent.  

Most are currently taxed at 28 per cent.
