Gutwein's new Cabinet


Ministerial jobs have been announced by the new Premier, with minimal changes.

Premier Peter Gutwein's hanging onto his Treasurer's portfolio, but sharing some of the load by appointing Michael Ferguson to Finance, who also hangs onto State Growth.

A new position of Climate Change Minister will be filled by the Premier himself, just as the Greens had argued for earlier this week.

Deputy Premier Jeremy Rockliff retains Education and Mental Health while also taking on Trade, Advanced Manufacturing and Defence Industries.

New to the cabinet is Jane Howlett as Minister for Sport and Recreation and Racing.

Sue Hickey is to remain Speaker of the House.
