From Morning Report, 7:33 am on 28 April 2020

Parliament is back today and with it several MPs, including a large chunk of National's caucus.

National will hold a phone conference with the whole caucus at 9am, as the rumbles over Simon Bridges' leadership continue.

Agitation over the leadership was reignited last week with many MPs unhappy about his the tone of his response to the news the lockdown would be extended until Monday night.
