It is my great privilege to work with Senator Jan McLucas as part of Labor’s Health team.
Senator McLucas has made an outstanding contribution to the nation through her work in the portfolios of Ageing, Disabilities and Carers, in Health, and as Minister for Human Services.
As a passionate advocate for Australians with a disability, she played a crucial role in the establishment of Labor’s National Disability Insurance Scheme.
After almost 18 years proudly serving the people of Queensland in the Australian Senate, Jan McLucas will not be contesting the next election.
However, I am delighted Jan will continue to be part of Labor’s health team as Shadow Minister for Mental Health.
I am extremely grateful for her experience and dedication and pay tribute to her ongoing contribution to the Labor Party and the Parliament over the past 18 years and in the years to come.
