MEDIA STATEMENT

 

 MINISTER FOR FINANCE AND SENATE LEADERSHIP

 I am pleased to announce a new Leader and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate.

 Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham will step up as Leader of the Government in the Senate and Senator the Hon Michaelia Cash will become Deputy Leader.

 These changes will take effect following the retirement of Minister Mathias Cormann at the end of this month.

 Senator Birmingham has served as a Senator since 2007 and has been the Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate since 2018.

 Senator Cash became a Senator in 2008 and has served as a Minister since 2013.

 I am also pleased to announce that Senator Birmingham will be sworn in as our next Minister for Finance at the end of the month. He continue on as Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment. I am not planning on making other ministerial changes at that time.

 Senators Birmingham and Cash are strong members of my team. They have demonstrated proven leadership over many years in senior cabinet portfolios as well as a capacity to work with senators from all backgrounds to get things done.

 Our new leadership team in the Senate will have a clear focus on policies that deliver jobs, investment and growth for Australia.

The Hon. Scott Morrison MP, Sydney
