Changes to NSW ministerial arrangements
From Friday 5 August 2022, three NSW Government Ministers will have their portfolios expanded.
Premier Dominic Perrottet has announced three NSW Government Ministers will have their portfolios expanded following the resignation of Stuart Ayres from the Cabinet.
Mr Perrottet said the Ministers will take responsibility for the additional portfolios from Friday 5 August 2022, when recommendations will be made to the Governor regarding their commissions.
“These Ministers have a proven track record of serving the people of NSW and I have full confidence that they have the experience to take on these additional responsibilities,” Mr Perrottet said.
Alister Henskens will assume the additional portfolios of Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade, and Minister for Sport. He is currently the Minister for Skills and Training and Minister for Science, Innovation and Technology.
Ben Franklin, the Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Minister for the Arts, and Minister for Regional Youth, will assume the additional portfolio of Minister for Tourism.
The Minister for Transport and Minister for Veterans Affairs, David Elliott, will assume the additional portfolio of Minister for Western Sydney.
