Mr Lee, who took over from predecessor Tom FitzPatrick on February 21, has cut and combined a number of portfolios to create a reduced number of individuals in cabinet.

Mr Lee will preside over a cabinet of seven, where Mr FitzPatrick had a cabinet of 10.

Mr Lee will himself be taking on a portfolio, but will be swapping the coastal portfolio (his previous position) for corporate services.

The new cabinet compromises of:
