Cabinet reshuffle unlikely - PM

3:19 pm on 13 December 2011

Prime Minister John Key says he hopes his new Cabinet will stay in place for the next three years.

Mr Key says changes are sometimes forced upon a Government, but as a general rule, Cabinet reshuffles cause more heartache than they resolve.

The new Cabinet will meet for the first time on Wednesday after being sworn-in at Government House.
