Nick Smith's departure has seen a Cabinet reshuffle, announced this afternoon by Prime Minister John Key.
The Local Government portfolio goes to Primary Industries Minister David Carter, while Communication Minister Amy Adams becomes the new Environment Minister.
Tim Groser is now the minister responsible for Climate Change.
Chris Tremain moves up the list as a minister inside Cabinet - he's now our Minister for Internal Affairs. As a result, Simon Bridges becomes a minister outside Cabinet and gets the Consumer Affairs portfolio from Mr Tremain.
Here's a picture the latter two, drift triking.
