History edit

Labour and Industry (1895-1921) edit

The Minister for Labour and Industry portfolio was established in 1895 in the Reid ministry and held in conjunction with the Minister of Public Instruction. In 1921, in the first Dooley ministry, the portfolio of Labour and Industry was split into Labour and the new portfolio of State Industrial Enterprises.[2] State Industrial Enterprises became the responsibility of the Minister for Railways. The responsibilities included - building construction, metal quarries, monier pipeworks, docks and workshops.[3] The State Industrial Enterprises portfolio was abolished in 1925 in the first Lang ministry.

State Development (1986-2011) edit

The Minister for State Development was a minister in the New South Wales Government that sought to attract new investment into the State and to identify opportunities for existing NSW businesses, through providing services to the business sector and co-ordination services to the public sector to develop an internationally competitive economy in New South Wales.[4][5]

The portfolio was abolished in 2011 with the formation of the O'Farrell ministry and its responsibilities were split between the portfolios of Trade and Investment and Regional Infrastructure and Services.[6]
