Swiss-Belhotel: Hotel industry could pull off ACT's private MIQ proposal

A struggling hotel owner says ACT's private MIQ policy would help out the industry.

The proposal would allow vaccinated travellers to pay for private MIQ at mothballed hotels.

All staff would have to be vaccinated, and regular saliva testing would have to take place at any hotel that wanted to sign up for it.

Leader David Seymour says it would help struggling hotels and free up spaces in MIQ.

Swiss-Belhotel President Gavin Faull told Mike Hosking the industry could pull it off.

"Just needs communication, just needs working together in this new systems and the hotel industry knows systems and we know discipline."

Faull says the government needs to trust them so they can help out.
