VicWater was pleased to receive a statement from the Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, sharing news of the Hon. Lisa Neville’s return to work after a significant period of absence due to illness.
Lisa will resume her ministerial duties from today, with an altered portfolio to accommodate her recovery from Crohn’s Disease. She will continue in her roles as the Minister for Water, Minister for Police and Coordinating Minister of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and retains responsibility for COVID-19 Quarantine Victoria (CQV).
To aid her recovery aspects of Lisa’s portfolio have been shared among other portfolios. Attorney General Jaclyn Symes will take over as Minister for Emergency Services, leading disaster recovery work with Bushfire Recovery Victoria, as well as continuing to support communities recently affected by storms and flooding, and Jaala Pulford will look after Resources.
VicWater wishes Lisa well with her continued recovery and we very much look forward to working with her in the future.
