Another step closer to federal recognition

SENIOR Australians are one step closer to being fully recognised as an important part of the Australian community.

Under the newly appointed Morrison Government, Ken Wyatt MP has been appointed to represent and champion seniors interests at the highest political level.

Minister Wyatt has had his list of portfolios extended to include, in addition to Aged Care and Indigenous Health, Senior Australians.

Officially Seniors News has been advised that Mr Wyatt's focus will be "on taking a broader, whole-of-government approach to advancing the interests of senior Australians". What they actually means is yet to be defined by Minister Wyatt.

Minister Wyatt remains sitting in the outer ministry with six other ministers. Inside the Cabinet room are 23 senior ministers.

Seniors News is seeking from Minister Wyatt details of his new portfolio responsibilities and its relationship to senior minister portfolios which impact on senior Australians.
