Conroy wins bigger comms role

 

Cabinet shake-up.

Stephen Conroy retained his broadband, communications and the digital economy portfolio in a cabinet shake-up announced by Prime Minister Julia Gillard today.

He would also take on additional responsibility in a minority Labor Government as the "Minister Assisting the Prime Minister on Digital Productivity".

Conroy had been one of the names tipped for the finance minister role that was vacated by Lindsay Tanner before the election.

Tanner retired and had since taken on a role at Victoria University.

Tanner's finance ministerial role went to the former climate change minister Penny Wong.
