About the Event

Hon Michael Woodhouse will be my guest for July.

Michael in a list MP based in Dunedin.

Michael was first elected to Parliament in 2008 as a National List MP based in Dunedin. During his first term in Parliament, he was a member of the Transport and Industrial select committee, the Health select committee and the Finance and Expenditure select committee. Following the 2011 General Election, Michael was made the Senior Government Whip – a position he held until his appointment as Minister of Immigration, Minister of Veterans’ Affairs and Associate Minister of Transport in January 2013. In May 2014, Michael was also appointed Minister for Land Information.

After the 2014 General Election, Michael was reappointed Minister of Immigration and appointed Minister of Police and Workplace Relations and Safety.  In December 2015, he gained the Revenue portfolio in place of Police.  In December 2016, Minister Woodhouse gained the ACC portfolio in place of Revenue.

After the 2017 General Election, Michael was appointed National’s spokesperson for Housing and Social Housing.  Following the reshuffle in March 2018, Michael became the spokesperson for Health and Immigration and the Shadow Leader of the House.  He serves on the Health Select Committee.

In the 53rd Parliament, Michael is National's spokesperson for Finance and Transport.  He retains the Shadow Leader of the House role and now serves on the Finance and Expenditure Select Committee.  Following the reshuffle in November 2021, Michael became the spokesperson for ACC, SOEs, Sport and Recreation and Statistics and Deputy Shadow Leader of the House.  He serves on the Government and Administration Select Committee.

Before being elected to Parliament in 2008, Michael was the Chief Executive Officer of Mercy Hospital Dunedin, a position he held for 7 ½ years.  Prior to that Michael held senior management positions with ACC, where he was instrumental in implementing ACC’s Elective Services Contracting framework and at Dunedin Hospital in change management, revenue and planning roles.
