by leave—Mr Speaker, for the information of the House, I table a revised list of the shadow ministry. The member for Barton will become the shadow minister for families and social services. The member for Chifley will add shadow minister for human services to his existing responsibilities as the shadow minister for the digital economy. Along with her responsibilities as shadow minister for young Australians and youth affairs, the member for Griffith will take on the role of shadow minister for employment services, workforce participation and future of work. Senator Jenny McAllister will be promoted to the position of shadow assistant minister for families and communities. Senator Louise Pratt will take on the position of shadow assistant minister for universities and shadow minister for equality.

The document read as follows—

Each box represents a portfolio except for (1) which is in the Education portfolio and (2) which is in the Health portfolio. Shadow Cabinet Ministers are shown in bold type.

On behalf of my united Labor team, I congratulate my colleagues on their new positions.
