Senator CHRIS EVANS (Leader of the Government in the Senate) (2:00 PM) —by leave—I table for the information of the Senate a revised ministry list reflecting changes to the ministry made on 25 February 2009, all of which relate to parliamentary secretary appointments, following the resignation of the Hon. John Murphy MP as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Trade. The Prime Minister has acknowledged the significant and strong contribution that Mr Murphy has made to the government and has thanked him for his service.

I have great pleasure in advising that Senator the Hon. Mark Arbib has been appointed Parliamentary Secretary for Government Service Delivery and has been given particular responsibility for implementing the government’s Nation Building and Jobs Plan; and that Senator the Hon. Ursula Stephens will be sworn in tomorrow to administer FaHCSIA, in addition to DEEWR, to better reflect her responsibilities as Parliamentary Secretary for Social Inclusion and Parliamentary Secretary for the Voluntary Sector. I seek leave to have the document incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.
