Tasmanian Liberal senator Richard Colbeck has been given the aged care portfolio in Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s ministry reshuffle.

Mr Morrison, who announced his second ministry in Canberra on Sunday, has appointed Mr Colbeck Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians following the promotion of Ken Wyatt to cabinet where he will lead the Indigenous Australians portfolio.
