Today I announce minor changes to the Shadow Ministry following the retirement of Former Senator Stephen Conroy.
Following this morning’s Caucus meeting, I have appointed Senator Don Farrell as the Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate.
Senator Farrell will also take on Shadow Cabinet responsibilities of Shadow Special Minister of State and Shadow Minister for Sport.
Senator Farrell is an experienced member of Labor’s Senate team and a passionate advocate for South Australia. Our team will benefit greatly from Senator Farrell’s steady hand and his calm resolve.
In addition, Ed Husic will add Digital Economy and Future of Work to his current responsibilities.
Once again, on behalf of the Labor Party, I thank Stephen Conroy for his tireless contribution to our movement and the nation.
