Greg Hunt upgrades to Health Portfolio

Turnbull government frontbencher Greg Hunt will take on the key cabinet portfolio of health in a limited reshuffle announced by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Wednesday that will also bring about minor changes to the outer ministry.
Mr Hunt, who led the dismantling of the so-called carbon tax as environment minister in the Abbott government and was industry minister after the election, replaces Sussan Ley, who resigned last week following a travel expenses scandal.

Malcolm Turnbull reveals who will replace Sussan Ley after her resignation over the expenses saga.

The Prime Minister also announced NSW senator and cabinet secretary Arthur Sinodinos, who has served as the acting health minister since Ms Ley stepped aside from the role 10 days ago, will replace Mr Hunt in the industry portfolio.
