Simon Bridges has no plans to stop using video material from Parliament in attack ads.

Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard has told National's leader he'll get fewer and fewer questions in the House, until his party stops using the material.

National will retain its questions quota, with the penalty applying only to Bridges.

Simon Bridges Kate Hawkesby he won't give in to the pressure to take them down.

"It is important, I am not in the mood to take down what we have done. We don't want to be muzzled on these important issues."

Bridges says he won't take down the ads, and isn't worried about the consequences.

"They don't want me challenging the PM, they want to protect her."
