There’s support from the other side of the House for the new Speaker.
National's Gerry Brownlee took up the role yesterday as the new Government and Opposition were sworn in for their first term.
Fellow Christchurch MP, Labour's Megan Woods, told Mike Hosking that Brownlee's love for the business of the House will work in this favour.
She's worked closely with Brownlee over the years and is sure he'll be able to make the switch.
The Police Minister is confident it wasn't a cabinet member who leaked a confidential cabinet paper.
The paper, which was for Workplace Relations Minister Brooke van Velden, was leaked to Newshub and related to the repeal of fair pay agreements.
MBIE has launched an investigation into the leak.
Mark Mitchell told Mike Hosking that that's a good step.
He says if someone isn't being a team player something needs to be done about it.
