Harriet Shing announced as the new Minister for Water

Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing joins new Deputy Premier Jacinta Allan and four other outstanding members of parliament as they step up to join the Ministry following the Parliamentary Labor Party meeting held on Saturday 25 June 2022.

These appointments bring the number of women in the Victorian Cabinet to 14 – more than any other Australian jurisdiction – with three of the four parliamentary leadership positions also filled by women.

Ms Shing has been appointed as the Victorian Minister for Water, Minister for Regional Development and Minister for Equality, following the resignation of Lisa Neville on Friday 24 June 2022.
