National Party deputy leader Paula Bennett has responded to reports New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has called for her head to roll - by sending him flowers.

Peters is off duty this week for what the Prime Minister said was minor knee surgery for an old rugby injury.

Bennett has declined to comment on the Newstalk ZB
