Restaurant Association wants funding for half price meals

From Morning Report, 8:30 am on 26 August 2020

The Restaurant Association has delivered a petition calling on the government to adopt a scheme similar to the UK's "Eat Out to Help Out" initiative.

Under the UK scheme, the government foots the bill for 50 percent of a meal eaten at a cafe, restaurant or pub to support the struggling hospitality industry.

Marisa Bidois is from the Restaurant Association.

She speaks to Susie Ferguson.
