    Acting Ministerial arrangements

    Two Ministers will share responsibilities for Energy, Water Supply, Biofuels, Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports following my decision to stand Mark Bailey aside as a Minister last night.

    Treasurer, Trade and Investment Minister Curtis Pitt will also be Acting Minister for Energy, Biofuels and Water Supply.

    Environment Minister Steven Miles will also serve as Acting Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports.

    The Acting Ministers will appear before the Budget Estimates hearing next Thursday.

    The CCC has recommended the Department address with the Premier the need for further explicit and formal advice to Ministers regarding the use of ministerial email addresses. These new guidelines will be released as soon as practicable.
