Each box represents a portfolio.  Cabinet Ministers are shown in bold type.   As a general rule, there is one department in each portfolio.  However, there is a Department of Veterans’ Affairs in the Defence portfolio and a Department of Regional Australia, Regional Development and Local Government in the Prime Minister’s portfolio.  The title of a department does not necessarily reflect the title of a minister in all cases.

Ms Gillard (Prime Minister) also informed the House that Mr Fitzgibbon had been appointed Chief Government Whip and Ms Hall and Mr Hayes had been appointed Government Whips.
