Answer -

I appointed 13 Parliamentary Secretaries pursuant to Part 4A of the Constitution Act 1902. I am advised a list is available on the NSW Government website.

A Parliamentary Secretary shall have and may perform such functions as the Premier may, from time to time, determine in respect of him or her, pursuant to s 10 38C of the Constitution Act 1902.

The general duties of a Parliamentary Secretary are outlined in the Ministers' Office Handbook
