Roman Travers is joined by Sir William Burch on The Sunday Cafe to talk about his new book ‘Bill Burch, Minister of Everything’.
Sir Birch represented the Franklin electorate for 27 years, and he explains as you are working seven days a week,
You tend to desert your family when you go into politics.
He was the minister of finance for six years, also working in immigration, health, ACC, electricity reforms and on the producer boards.
Sir Birch says when he retired in 1999 from politics it was a “big sigh of relief."
The book, written by Brad Tattersfield is available now.
