Peter Dutton loses Immigration in Prime Minister Scott Morrison's 'new generation' ministry

New Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced his ministry on Sunday afternoon.

Among the changes include Peter Dutton, who was defeated by Morrison in a leadership spill on Friday, keeps his Home Affairs portfolio but loses immigration, with that job going to David Coleman, the former assistance minister for finance.

“David has a keen understanding of the many different backgrounds and the many different issues that need to be managed to ensure that Australians who have come from so many backgrounds get that fair go I spoke of,” the Prime Minister said.

Former Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce was given a special envoy for drought assistance and recovery, while Marise Payne – previously in charge of defence – is the new Foreign Affairs Minister, replacing Julie Bishop who announced her resignation earlier today.

Steve Ciobo, previously in charge of Trade, Tourism and Investment, moves to Defence.

Former Education Minister Simon Birmingham, a Turnbull loyalist, moves to Trade with Dan Tehan taking on Education.

Morrison split the energy and environment roles — previously held by newly appointed deputy leader and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg — into two separate ministries with Melissa Price promoted into Cabinet as Environment Minister, and Dutton supporter Angus Taylor as Energy Minister.

The two of the trio of Cabinet Ministers who change of allegiance to challenger Peter Dutton on Thursday was crucial to the end of the Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership, keep their old jobs – Mathias Cormann in Finance and as Senate leader, and Mitch Fifield in Communication and Arts. But the third, Michaelia Cash has lost Jobs, which goes to Kelly O’Dwyer along with Industrial Relations and Women, while Cash will run Small Business and Vocational Education and remains in Cabinet.

Western Australian Michael Keenan, a key Dutton supporter, loses his place in Cabinet but keeps Human Services and Digital Transformation.

Tony Abbott was not given a portfolio.

“These roles, I think, provide an opportunity for those who have served in senior levels in the past and continue to make any constructive contribution,” Morrison said, calling it a “next-generation team”.

He said his new cabinet would “restore stability to the government” after the turmoil of the past week.
