NewssiriusSunday, 26 August 2018 - 9:32pm
The turmoil in politics over the past week has led to some local disappointment. The Federal MP for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie's name was missing from the new Morrison Ministry announced earlier today (Sunday 26 August). Dr Gillespie had been Assistant Minister for Children and Families in the last Turnbull ministry. He had been allocated that portfolio only last December. Before that Dr Gillespie had served as Assistant Minister for Health and Assistant Minister for Rural Health.
The new Assistant Minister for Children and Families will be Ms Michelle Landry, MP for Capricornia. Previously Ms Landry had been the Chief Nationals Whip.
