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. Assistant Ministers in italics are designated as Parliamentary Secretaries under the Ministers of State Act 1952.

Mr MORRISON: I'd like to place on record the thanks of this chamber, but in particular the parliamentary Liberal and National parties, for the dedicated service of former Prime Minister Turnbull. I have had the opportunity to extend my remarks and sincere best wishes to him on other occasions, and I don't intend to prolong that matter here today in the House. I also wish to thank the member for Curtin for her 11 years of service as deputy leader, and commend her for her great service to her country.
