The transition from senior Government minister to opposition front bencher is a "brutal one", Dunedin MP Michael Woodhouse says.
Veteran political journalist Neale McMillan asks what the change has meant for the National party list MP.
Mr Woodhouse says the change has been stark and his workload had "fallen of a cliff" since moving into opposition.
He was still adjusting to being in opposition, which required MPs to be proactive and "self-starting".
This was different to being a minister where "wave after wave" of work came at you at all times.
