Media Release

Attorney-General, Christian Porter, welcomed his reappointment to Cabinet as Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Leader of Government Business in the House.

“In the Attorney-General’s portfolio there are a number of major reforms on the Government’s agenda which I will be working to achieve early in the 46th Parliament,” the Attorney-General said.

“The highest priority will be the structural reform of the family law courts to ensure families requiring the assistance of the courts to finalise their relationships are able to have their matters dealt with as quickly, efficiently and cheaply as possible.

“Other policy reforms that will now have an implementation focus will be the establishment of the new Commonwealth Integrity Commission and the religious discriminations bill to protect religious freedoms.

“In Industrial Relations, my initial focus will be on the law enforcement aspects of the portfolio, ensuring adherence with Australia’s industrial relations laws, particularly on building sites across Australia.

“I am also looking forward as Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives to ensuring that the Morrison Government’s legislative agenda is achieved as efficiently as possible.

“I thank the Prime Minister for the opportunity to continue to serve the people of Australia in a senior position in the Morrison Government.”
