Cabinet ‘refresh’ for Queensland

Queensland Premier, Annastascia Palaszczuk today unveiled a “refreshed” Cabinet that she said was focussed on delivering for Queenslanders – now and for the future.  

The Premier said the reshuffled Cabinet would continue to drive Queensland’s substantial and modernising economic agenda for the future, while also tackling the issues affecting Queensland households today.

“Our government cares about Queenslanders and what they’re thinking – I have listened, and I have acted,” the Premier said.

“I’m going to use the experience I have as Premier to have a critical focus on shaping a better and fairer Queensland, now and for the future.

“I’m firmly focussed on the future. And I’m firmly focussed on the key issues affecting Queenslanders – as my government is.

“That’s why I have refreshed the government by refreshing the Cabinet and today marks a new beginning.”

In the new Cabinet, Shannon Fentiman will take responsibility for Health and Ambulance Services, Mental Health and Women.

Minister Meaghan Scanlon has been promoted, taking on responsibility for the new standalone priority portfolio of Housing. 

Minister Leeanne Enoch will have responsibility for Treaty, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Communities and the Arts.
