The Federal Government has announced that The Hon. Warren Snowdon MP will be the Minister for Indigenous Health in the latest cabinet reshuffle. Mr Snowdon was the Indigenous Health Minister prior to the recent election and has now been reinstated in this position. Mr Snowdon also has cabinet responsibilities of Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Minister for Defence Science and Personnel.
