For the information of members, I advise that yesterday I was elected as the leader of the federal parliamentary National Party. You mightn't have seen that! I inform members that the Minister for Agriculture, Drought and Emergency Management remains the Deputy Leader of the National Party. I present a revised ministry, reflecting the changes to the ministry and the representative arrangements.

The document read as follows—

Each box represents a portfolio. Cabinet Ministers are shown in bold type. As a general rule, there is one department in each portfolio. However, there can be two departments in one portfolio. The title of a department does not necessarily reflect the title of a Minister in all cases. Ministers are sworn to administer the portfolio in which they are listed under the 'Minister' column and may also be sworn to administer other portfolios in which they are not listed. Assistant Ministers in italics are designated as Parliamentary Secretaries under the Ministers of State Act 1952.
