National is not a fan of Labour's 2021 Budget.

National's shadow treasurer Andrew Bayly says there are good parts of the Budget, but they wanted to see a path towards recovery.

He told Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford that, in terms of investment and direction, this Budget is slightly backward looking.

"It's trying to pick what situation we're in. I think we should be asking ourselves 'how do we get out of it', and that should be a forward leaning perspective, and that's only about growing this economy."

Bayly says they need a roadmap to grow the economy.
