National is expected to pull back on the number of bills it will push through under urgency as it starts its second week in government.
Its big battle this week will be the repeal of the law regulating the amount of biofuels oil companies must sell.
After the opening of Parliament last week, five new laws were passed.
Nearly all drew heated opposition, the exception being one covering crimes against children, which was passed unanimously during the marathon sitting on Saturday.
Justice Minister Simon Power has charge of five of the eight remaining pieces of legislation that National has promised to pass within 100 days.
He said legislation giving police the power to issue on-the-spot protection orders for victims of domestic violence would be given a first reading then be sent to select committee this week.
All the other crime and justice bills under Mr Power will be introduced later, and will go to a select committee.
He said that had always been the plan. It was not a response to criticism the Government copped last week for rushing legislation.
Mr Power said the bill repealing the Electoral Finance Act would wait until the House resume in February.
The energy bill to be passed this week will repealing a requirement for oil companies to have biofuels as 2.5 per cent of annual sales by 2012.
The plan was revealed in the election campaign but local biofuels businessman Tom McNicholl says it will be devastating for him.
He had invested more than $10 million in biofuel research and development, and would now mothball a 60 million litre facility he was building in Waharoa.
United Future leader Peter Dunne has vowed to oppose repeal of the law, saying that it was a blow for the domestic biofuel industry and would again raise issues about imports.
"The environmentally-conscious biofuel consumer will be faced with an imported product with all the source sustainability uncertainties that we are all trying to avoid," he said.
"The repeal of this legislation means there is nothing to stop the importation of biofuel from cleared southeast Asian rainforests, from land that used to grow food for the poor people of the third world, or from the United States' carbon-intensive ethanol market."
Leader of the House and Energy Minister Gerry Brownlee dismissed criticism over last week's rush of laws.
"It would be a bit naive to think a government would come in with only two weeks before Christmas and then a seven-week break and not be exercised about getting some of its programme under way.
Environment Minister Nick Smith said repeal of the Resource Management Act would wait until February.
He would name this week the advisory group on amendments to the act which had been agreed to in National's confidence and supply agreement with Act.
