Federal Member for Mallee, Andrew Broad said he is looking forward to working with the new Morrison McCormack Government following the announcement of the Ministry list yesterday.

Mr Broad will join six other Victorian MP’s including Senator Bridget McKenzie and Member for Gippsland Darren Chester MP after being appointed Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister.
