An interesting list of portfolios that have not been assigned to someone in the shadow cabinet.
- Earthquake Recovery (one of the four major priorities of the Government)
- Conservation (leaving it to the Greens)
- Revenue (hey, who needs to worry about how we get the money we spend)
- Maori Affairs (yet they claim they want to win all the Maori seats)
Not all portfolios can be held by someone in the shadow cabinet, but you expect the more significant ones to generally be there.
