This written statement alerts Members to a change in Ministerial responsibilities within the Cabinet.

The Minister for Social Justice will become the Minister for Social Justice and Chief Whip.

She will also assume a Welsh Government Ministerial liaison role for the Co-operation Agreement to continue to support progress against all the commitments as we enter the second half of the three-year agreement with Plaid Cymru.

I want to put on record my thanks to the Deputy Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism for her work and support in the role of Chief Whip.

The updated List of Ministerial Responsibilities also sets out a small number of changes between the rural affairs and climate change portfolios.
