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.


Senator CHRIS EVANS —I advise that Senator Arbib is travelling to Switzerland to represent Australia at the International Olympic Committee’s meeting on irregular and illegal sports betting and will be absent from question time this week.

Opposition senators interjecting—


Senator CHRIS EVANS —I wish I had his job! I will take questions as Minister representing the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Minister representing the Minister for Indigenous Employment and Economic Development, and Minister representing the Minister for Social Housing and Homelessness. Senator Conroy will take questions as Acting Minister for Sport and Minister representing the Minister for the Arts and Senator Ludwig will take questions as Minister representing the Minister for Social Inclusion and Minister representing the Minister for Human Services.
