The leader of the Labour Party says he's uncomfortable with the proposed legislation on indoor dining, as it's in effect, discriminatory.

New legislation agreed by cabinet will see people who have been fully vaccinated, or have recovered from COVID-19, be allowed dine indoors by July 26th.

Labour leader Alan Kelly says if he was in government, he would have opted to open hospitality in full with additional PCR and antigen testing, instead of bringing in such a complex system for five or six weeks.

He says the new legislation is effectively discriminatory, as vaccines have not yet been offered to everyone, including those working in hospitality.
