National's MPs are underway with bidding for roles within Parliament.

Judith Collins is in the midst of interviewing her 34 colleagues to see what party positions they want and if there's anything to be disclosed.

She told Mike Hosking it's a chance to let members say what they want, including discussing the party's dramatic election loss.

But Collins says prolonged arguments are unproductive and aren't where the party will grow from.

She says talks will go on into next week, and any decisions, including if Gerry Brownlee stays on as her deputy, will be revealed in a few weeks.

Collins says it's unfair to say the tide's gone out on Brownlee .

"Gerry Brownlee is party loyal, reliable, a great deputy, and excellent MP."

Collins is still interviewing the party's 34 other MPs to see what roles they want, and if there are things to be disclosed.
