Shadow Ministry: acting arrangments

Following the suspension of Dr Carmen Lawrence from the Shadow Ministry pending the outcome of her trial. I have made the following arrangements for the portfolios she held:

. The Hon Duncan Kerr MP will hold the position of Acting Shadow Minister for the Environment in addition to his current responsibilities as Shadow Minister for Population and Immigration and Assistant to the Leader of the Opposition on Multicultural Affairs.

. The Hon Bob McMullan MP will hold the position of Acting Shadow Minister for the Arts in addition to his current responsibilities as Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations.

. Senator Belinda Neal will hold the position of Acting Shadow Minister Assisting the Leader of the Opposition on the Status of Women in addition to her current responsibilities as Shadow Minister for Consumer Affairs and Local Government.

All other Shadow Ministers will retain their current portfolios and there will be no changes to the personnel of the Shadow Ministry.
