Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has retained her role as Assistant Minister for Children and Families in the new Ministry announced by Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the National Party Barnaby Joyce.
Michelle Landry said “I have thoroughly enjoyed being the Assistant Minister for Children and Families over the last three years and there is still much more to do. My job now is leading, in partnership with the States and Territories, the development and delivery of the next 10-year National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2021-2031.”
This crucial piece of work will help set our nation up when it comes to keeping our most vulnerable children safe, especially at-risk indigenous children, the 46,000 children in out-of-home care, children with a disability, and children in families with multiple and complex issues.
“I am really optimistic that the new framework will make a real difference to the lives of our most vulnerable children. I wish to thank Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce as well as the Prime Minister Scott Morrison for allowing me to continue this rewarding and important work. I would also like to congratulate all my National Party colleagues and wish them well in their new roles.” Ms Landry said
The new cabinet will be officially sworn in next Friday.
Michelle Landry said “I will also continue to work tirelessly for my electorate of Capricornia and do what I have always done, bring wealth, prosperity and jobs, as well as stand up for the farmers, the miners the workers and the small medium and large business owners of Central Queensland”
