Simon Bridges is slamming any suggestion of disorder within the National party.
Three more National MPs have announced this political term is their last, taking the total number who have left since the 2017 election, or will leave in September, to 13.
The latest three to move on are Sarah Dowie, Nicky Wagner and David Carter.
Dowie is the only real surprise, as she'd been selected unopposed in her safe Invercargill seat.
But Simon Bridges told Mike Hosking it's not a problem.
"It shows we are gearing up the government and we want people who are ready, willing and able for the full tour of duty."
