Bennett wants National to 'own' environmental issues

Paula Bennett hopes the Greens' woes will put more focus on her own party's environmental track record.

Speaking on The AM Show the Deputy Prime Minister said the Greens are "people of integrity" and will be rocked by Metiria Turei's failed gamble.

If the Greens don't make it back into Parliament, Ms Bennett says it'll give National a chance to "own" the conversation on environmental issues.
