Mark Dreyfus - a tough act to follow

The promotion of Mark Dreyfus to Attorney General leaves a large gap in the climate change portfolio where he served as a very prominent and effective parliamentary secretary to Combet. His replacement Yvette D'Ath has a big task ahead of her leading up to the September federal election.

The appointment of Queenslander, Yvette D’Ath as the new Parliamentary Secretary for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency has landed her in a hot seat at a critical time facing conflicting priorities. It makes her the key player supporting Greg Combet in his role as Minister in the 2013 battle over climate change and the carbon price.
