Jenny Mikakos has today resigned her ministerial position. I believe that is the right decision.
I would like to thank Jenny for her many years of service to the Parliament and to the Government. I acknowledge her commitment and hard work in all of the portfolios she has held as a Minister. I wish her well.
Martin Foley will become the Minister for Health, Minister for Ambulance Services and Minister for the Coordination of Health and Human Services COVID-19.
Throughout his ministerial career, Martin has already overseen vital reforms in mental health, housing and disability. He has always demonstrated great care and compassion for the most vulnerable members of our community, and I know he will do an outstanding job leading our health response to the global pandemic.
Further arrangements for the Ministry will be announced in due course.
