SPECULATION intensified last night that Julia Gillard may have a minor reshuffle of her ministry before Christmas.

There have been rumours that Small Business Minister Nick Sherry may step down.

Last night the opposition was promoting the suggestion that Attorney-General Robert McClelland was about to announce his retirement, with a reshuffle following that. But a spokesman said that "Mr McClelland said that reports that he is going to retire are incorrect".
