Yes Minister

Craig Farrell.
FORMER Derwent Valley deputy mayor Craig Farrell MLC has been elevated to the ministry following the removal of the two Tasmanian Greens ministers from State Cabinet today. Mr Farrell, of New Norfolk, will be sworn in at Government House tomorrow morning (Friday).

Mr Farrell serves as Leader for the Government in the Upper House and will have the additional duties of Minister for Sustainable Transport and Minister for Corrections and Consumer Protection; and will also be a Member of the Executive Council.

The ministerial shakeup follows Labor Premier Lara Giddings' decision to terminate the arrangement that saw two Greens serving in Cabinet in order to keep her government in office. This accompanied the premier's announcement that a State Election would be held on March 15.
