    Bill Byrne to serve as Acting Agriculture and Fisheries Minister

    Police and Corrective Services Minister Bill Byrne will also serve as Acting Agriculture and Fisheries Minister following the resignation of Leanne Donaldson last night, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.

    “Bill served as Agriculture and Fisheries Minister last year and he has worked closely with stakeholders across our primary industries,” the Premier said.

    “My Government is making an historic commitment to primary industries, whether it is providing greater access to financial assistance for producers, or restoring our biosecurity preparedness and combatting wild dogs to support the sheep and wool industry, or new management arrangements for sustainable fishing, or advancing agriculture and fisheries through research and development.”
