Tinley loses mines portfolio

Premier Mark McGowan has been forced to reshuffle his cabinet just four days after his ministers were sworn in, with Labor state president Peter Tinley losing the mines and petroleum portfolio.

The change was made after cabinet was advised that a member of Mr Tinley’s family worked in the oil and gas industry, creating a potential conflict of interest.

Bill Johnston will return to the mines and petroleum portfolio, which he covered in opposition, with Mr Tinley taking the housing portfolio.
