Prime Minister John Key says Judith Collins will be taking a few days off.

The Justice Minister has been "struggling under the pressure" of questions about her involvement with Chinese company Oravida, which her husband is a director of, Key said.

Key said Collins would front questions about Oravida in Parliament this week and it was important she did so because neither she or the Government had anything to hide over the affair.

But after that she would take some time off.

After a torrid weekend in which Collins lashed out at journalists and faced fresh questions over Oravida, Key said he had had "a couple of pretty long conversations" with her.

But he said he had never suggested to Collins that she stand down.
