by leave—Mr President, I table for the information of the Senate a revised ministry list reflecting changes to the ministry made on 5 March 2012. It has been circulated to party leaders and I seek leave to have the document incorporated into Hansard.

Leave granted.

The document read as follows—


5 March 2011

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 is a Department of Veterans' Affairs in the Defence portfolio. The title of a department does not necessarily reflect the title of a minister in all cases.

* The Hon Bob Carr will be appointed as Minister for Foreign Affairs following his appointment as a Senator.
