National leader Simon Bridges is holding a press conference in Tauranga where he will respond to the Government's decision to not implement a capital gains tax. 

He said on Twitter that his party's "relentless opposition" to the CGT "forced the result" of the Government's decision.

Bridges will also likely be questioned on his leadership. National MPs have been speaking out against their leader and Newshub has been told of agitation behind the scenes.
