Premier Kathy Dunderdale announced this afternoon that Tom Marshall will be temporarily filling the role of Finance minister.
Marshall will maintain his Natural Resources portfolio and also be acting President of Treasury Board, Minister Responsible for the Human Resource Secretariat, Minister Responsible for the Public Service Commission and Minister Responsible for the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corporation.
The change comes as a result of the resignation of former Finance Minister Jerome Kennedy earlier this week.
