Farrell's new roles in State Opposition

STATE Labor leader Bryan Green has handed several shadow portfolio responsibilities to New Norfolk’s Craig Farrell. The Derwent MLC lost his role as Leader for the Government in the Legislative Council following Labor's defeat at the March 15 State Election, along with the substantial allowance and chauffeured car that went with the role.

For the last two months of former premier Lara Giddings' administration, Mr Farrell also served as Minister for Sustainable Transport and Minister for Corrections and Consumer Protection. His responsibilities in the new parliament are as the opposition spokesman for infrastructure and for environment, parks and heritage.

Announcing his shadow cabinet last week, Opposition Leader Bryan Green said Labor would get straight to work on holding the new Liberal Government to account. “Labor has a depth of ministerial experience developed during our time in government, coupled with new faces and fresh ideas,” Mr Green said.
