The first Parliamentary showdown between Christopher Luxon's new-look National Party and Jacinda Ardern's Labour Government did not disappoint - with Speaker Trevor Mallard demanding that MPs on both sides quieten down. 

It was Luxon's first go at firing questions at Ardern, targeting the Prime Minister on the non-delivery of extra ICU beds and confusion among Auckland businesses over the traffic-light system. 

Stuart Nash and Mark Mitchell joined Mike Hosking to discuss this and the week's politics news.
