Courtney Houssos MLC to assume extra role in NSW Shadow Ministry


New South Wales Labor Leader, Chris Minns MP, has announced today that Courtney Houssos MLC will assume the role of Shadow Minister for Natural Resources.

This new role will be in addition to Ms Houssos’ current role of Shadow Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation.

In a statement following his announcement, Mr Minns said Ms Houssos “is an outstanding member of the Labor team holding the Government to account on important issues including building and construction in NSW, as well as taking up the case of the Mascot Towers residents.”

Ms Houssos was promoted to the NSW frontbench for the first time by Mr Minns back in June 2021, along with fellow Greek Australian politician and Member for Rockdale, Steve Kamper MP.

In her role as Shadow Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Ms Houssos has worked with authorities to push for the removal of flammable cladding from high-risk apartment towers across NSW.
