Judith Collins on prominent role in new government

From Morning Report, 8:12 am on 28 November 2023

Former National Party leader Judith Collins has a prominent role with the new government, appointed to several ministerial posts as well as the position of Attorney-General.

A lawyer by profession, Collins will also be Minister of Defence, Minister in charge of spy agencies the GCSB and SIS, the Minister of Science, Innovation and Technology, and the first Minister for Space.

It's been a topsy turvy few years for Judith Collins, after leading an unsuccessful 2021 election campaign as National leader, but she'll now be one of the most experienced ministers in Christopher Luxon's cabinet.

Collins spoke to Corin Dann.
