A RESHUFFLE of the state opposition has seen Mornington MP David Morris lose the high-profile position of spokesperson for environment and climate change.
Mr Morris is now the opposition’s spokesperson for finance, ageing, bay protection and fishing and boating.
In the reshuffle announced by opposition leader Michael O’Brien, first-term MP for Evelyn, Bridget Vallence, was promoted to be spokesperson for environment, climate change and youth affairs.
The reshuffle follows the departure from Parliament of Upper House MP Mary Wooldridge, the opposition’s health spokesperson.
Mr Morris, a former Shire of Mornington councillor and shire president, was elected as the Liberal MP fior Mornington in November 2006.
Mr Morris was Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government and acting speaker during the 2010-2014 Liberal National government under premiers Ted Baillieu and Denis Napthine.
