Pilbara News - - News - Dy­lan Ca­porn

Mark McGowan has an­nounced his full list of Cabi­net min­is­ters, re­ward­ing se­nior mem­bers of his team with sig­nif­i­cant port­fo­lios.

The Pre­mier — who will also serve as min­is­ter for pub­lic sec­tor man­age­ment, state devel­op­ment, jobs and trade and Fed­eral-State re­la­tions — said the Cabi­net pre­sented a “very ex­cit­ing time for WA”.

Deputy Pre­mier Roger Cook will get the dual role of health and men­tal health min­is­ter, roles which were con­ducted by two min­is­ters in the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment.

Mr McGowan said he gave both po­si­tions to Mr Cook be­cause it el­e­vated the is­sue. La­bor’s new Cabi­net in­cor­po­rates some fa­mil­iar faces and some no­table omis­sions.

Sue Ellery will work in the dual role of ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing, an­other set of port­fo­lios sep­a­rate un­der the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment, with re­spon­si­bil­ity for both schools and TAFEs.

New Leg­isla­tive Coun­cil deputy leader Stephen Daw­son will take on the role of en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ter, after for­mer shadow min­is­ter Chris Tal­len­tire was dropped from the Cabi­net. Mr Daw­son will also be dis­abil­ity ser­vices min­is­ter.

Ben Wy­att will be­come Aus­tralia’s first in­dige­nous trea­surer, while also col­lect­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for fi­nance, en­ergy and Abo­rig­i­nal af­fairs.

La­bor stal­wart Alan­nah MacTier­nan will take on the roles of re­gional devel­op­ment and agri­cul­ture and food. Fran Lo­gan has col­lected the emer­gency ser­vices and cor­rec­tive ser­vices port­fo­lios, while Michelle Roberts will re­turn as po­lice and road safety min­is­ter.

Man­durah MP and for­mer whip David Tem­ple­man takes on lo­cal gov­ern­ment, cul­ture and the arts and the Par­lia­men­tary leader of the house role.

But­ler MP John Quigley will be made at­tor­ney-gen­eral, while Col­lie-Pre­ston MP Mick Mur­ray will be se­niors and age­ing, vol­un­teer­ing and sport and recre­ation min­is­ter. Paul Pa­palia be­comes tourism and rac­ing and gam­ing min­is­ter, while Bill John­ston will take re­spon­si­bil­ity for hous­ing, elec­toral af­fairs, com­merce and in­dus­trial re­la­tions.

Rita Saf­fi­oti will con­tinue in her trans­port and plan­ning roles while also tak­ing on the lands port­fo­lio.

Peter Tin­ley will be mines and petroleum min­is­ter, Si­mone McGurk will be child pro­tec­tion min­is­ter with other re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of women’s in­ter­ests, do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and com­mu­nity ser­vice.
