New Federal Ministers announced
Prime Minister Scott Morrison's new post-election cabinet has been announced, with a number of changes affecting the vocational education sector and creative and leisure industries.
While Simon Birmingham retains Tourism and Karen Andrews retains Science and Technology, Communications and the Arts move from Mitch Fifield to Paul Fletcher, former senior Optus executive and long time telecommunications adviser.
Responsibility for Youth and Sport will move from Bridget McKenzie to Richard Colbeck.
Responsibility for vocational education will sit with WA Member for Swan Steve Irons, and is set to move across to sit under Michaelia Cash's Employment portfolio, rather than under Dan Tehan and the Education portfolio as previously.
