I am honoured to be appointed by the Prime Minister to join his ministerial team as the Minister for Human Services.

The Human Services portfolio touches the lives of millions of Australians every day and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the Minister for Social Services, the Hon Christian Porter MP, through the intersection of policy and service delivery.

I thank the Prime Minister for his confidence in me and I look forward to continuing to implement the Turnbull Government's agenda of innovation and reform for a better Australia.
