THE Water portfolio has been split from the old Primary Industries ministry in the new Berejiklian-Barilaro government, with Adam Marshall taking the new portfolio of Agriculture (which also covers fisheries).

According to an article in The Land, with Niall Blair stepping down, the Government has reacted to anger over water issues by splitting Water from Ag and handing it to Melinda Pavey in her new ministry of Water, Property and Housing.

Adam Marshall will also have to try and calm the waters in the new additional role as Minister for Western NSW. The Nationals lost two vast western electorates, Murray and Barwon, to the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party in the recent state election.

“I feel deeply honoured and privileged to be appointed to the new Berejiklian-Barilaro Cabinet to serve as Minister for Agriculture and Minister for Western NSW”, said Marshall.

“It’s been quite a journey for this lad from the land at Curlewis, near Gunnedah, and I’m looking forward to the challenges and the opportunities ahead over the coming years.”
