Impending Ministerial Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 12 January 1870
Impending Ministerial Changes. We understand that Parliament will, according to present arrangements, bo summoned by Proclamation to meet on the 27th January. It is a matter of regret to learn that the present responsible head of the Government is not likely to moot the new Parlia muilL in Mini, uupuuny, uimuugu iiu wlu. tor uiu present retain the seat which tho electors of West Sydney so generously gave him on a recent occasion. Tho announcement in the Government Gazette of last ovening that the Hon. Charles Cowper, C.M.G., had been appointed Vicc-President of the Executive Council will have prepared tho public for some modification in the construction of the Ministry, and this will probably bo more definitely expressed in a very short time. The retirement of Mr. Robertson from tho important Ministerial office of Vice Prcsidcnt of the Executive Council has no connec tion whatever with political affairs, and is not caused by any difference of opinion with his colleagues.
