Gerry Brownlee changes titles
Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee has been given a new title, effective immediately.
He's become Minister Supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, a change Prime Minister John Key says makes the Government's responsibilities clear.
"The passing of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act and the disestablishment of CERA marks a new phase," Mr Key said today.
"The Government is moving more towards a supporting role and the change in portfolio reflects that."
A new organisation, Regenerate Christchurch, is in the process of taking over from CERA.
It's a joint operation run by the Government and Christchurch City Council, but it will eventually be fully controlled by the council.
