by leave—I advise that the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Shorten, has announced some variations in the composition of the shadow ministry. I congratulate my Senate colleague Glenn Sterle on his appointment as shadow assistant minister for road safety, an issue about which he's passionate and knowledgeable. Whilst these changes do not directly affect the portfolio responsibilities of other shadow ministers in the Senate, there are some associated changes of representational responsibilities. I seek leave to table the revised shadow ministry list and have it incorporated in Hansard.

Leave granted.

The document read as follows—


Each box represents a portfolio except for (1) which is in the Education portfolio, (2) which is in Treasury portfolio and (3) which is in the Health portfolio. Shadow Cabinet Ministers are shown in bold type .
