Townsville MP Scott Stewart has been named as the Resources Minister in Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk’s new-look Cabinet.
Ms Palaszczuk revealed the full line-up for her ministry this afternoon after Governor of Queensland Paul de Jersey formally invited her to form government following the October 31 poll results.
The Premier, in her third term, said the ministry reflected the importance of powering Queensland’s economic recovery and the continued health response.
She said it established a Minister for Hydrogen, recognising the importance of this valuable new energy source, and a Minister for Water.
Gladstone’s Glenn Butcher takes the Minister for Water role, along with Minister for Regional Development and Manufacturing.
Mick de Brenni adds Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen to his responsibilities along with Minister for Public Works and Procurement.
Ms Palaszczuk said she expected her ministers to focus squarely on the state’s economic recovery and providing the services all Queenslanders – including seniors and those in regional Queensland – needed.
“Queenslanders expect us to get on with implementing our Economic Recovery Plan,” she said. “They expect the roads, schools and hospitals we need and the jobs that go with building them. It is our job to get on with the job and that’s exactly what we will do.”
