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 Human Services in the Social Services portfolio and a Department of Veterans ' Affairs in the Defence portfolio. The title of a department does not necessarily reflect the title of a minister in all cases.

Mr ABBOTT: I would also like to inform the House that the honourable member for Berowra has been appointed Chief Government Whip and that the honourable members for Forrest and Wright have been appointed government whips.
