Premier announces new Ministry

Queensland Premier Campbell Newman today announced the new Ministry of the Newman LNP Government.

Mr Newman said the Ministry included both experienced members and new faces who had wide-ranging, real world experience to get Queensland back on track.

“The new faces in the Ministry reflect the depth of talent in the LNP and the experienced members will continue their outstanding work for the people of Queensland,” Mr Newman said.

“This is a Ministry for all of Queensland because it’s made of representatives of all of the regions.

“All members of the Ministry will be working hard for Queensland - to grow a four pillar economy, lower the cost of living by cutting waste, revitalise front line services, deliver better infrastructure and planning and restore accountability to government.

“After 20 years of Labor, we have a lot of work to do, but my team and I will be working hard every day to get Queensland back on track.

“I pledge to the people of Queensland that we will not let you down.”

The Ministry will be sworn in by Her Excellency Penelope Wensley AC on Tuesday.
