|Description of this GroupDescription of this Group|
This group includes the Minister for Ethnic, Municipal and Community Affairs and the Minister for Youth Affairs as well as the Ministry of Ethnic, Municipal and Community Affairs (VA 3015) and the Department of Business and Employment (VA 3096).
A Minister for Youth Affairs was commissioned for the first time as part of the October 1992 machinery of government changes. The group has been dated from 1991 to include the period during which the Minister for Ethnic, Municipal and Community Affairs was responsible (February 1991 to October 1992) for the functions assumed by the Minister for Youth Affairs. This is because the Ethnic, Municipal and Community Affairs portfolio has not been registered as a Victorian Record Group.
Following the re-election of the Kennett Government in April 1996 a Youth and Community Services (VRG 127) portfolio was established with the appointment of a Minister for Youth and Community Services. This portfolio comprises the whole of the former Youth Affairs portfolio.
