Following the resignation of Luke Donnellan from the Ministry, James Merlino and Richard Wynne have been sworn in to additional portfolios this evening.
The Deputy Premier will add Disability, Ageing and Carers to his responsibilities while Minister Wynne takes on Child Protection.
As senior ministers in the relevant departments, I have asked the Deputy Premier and Minister Wynne to assume these additional duties in the short term. Broader changes to the Ministry will be made at a later date.
