Briefing to Incoming Minister

The Briefing to the Incoming Minister reports are produced following each General Election and serve as an introduction to the work of the Ministry.

In December 2016 as part of the new Cabinet announcement, the Broadcasting portfolio was disestablished and its responsibilities are now included within the Communications and the Arts, Culture and Heritage portfolios.

Here is the latest briefing presented to Ministers Simon Bridges and Maggie Barry about media policy responsiblities as well as earlier briefings from October 2014.

These documents have been proactively released. Redactions made to these documents have been made consistent with provisions of the Official Information Act 1982. For briefing reports from previous years please contact us.
