National confirms whips
National Party Leader John Key says the National Party Caucus has confirmed its whips.
"Nathan Guy is to be the Government's senior whip, and Chris Tremain will be the junior whip."
Mr Guy was elected to Parliament in 2005 on National's list and successfully challenged Labour's Darren Hughes to win the Otaki electorate seat in the 2008 election.
Mr Guy was appointed National's senior whip in February 2008, replacing Anne Tolley. Mr Tremain was appointed junior whip at that time too.
Mr Tremain came into Parliament in 2005 and won the Napier seat for National, the first time that Napier had been won by National since 1951.
