Darren Chester gets new old portfolios

Not that it matters a whole lot – but just for the record – Darren Chester is now known as the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and the Minister for Defence Personnel.

Wasn’t he that already?

Well yes he was – before 26 May last year.

In a new-look Morrison Government announced on 26 May 2019, Mr Chester was listed as Minister for Veterans and Defence Personnel, in a single portfolio.

However, in a new mini-reshuffle published on 6 February 2020, Mr Chester has officially reverted to his dual ministries (seperate portfolios) of Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister for Defence Personnel.
