Newly elected MHA Fred Hutton was sworn into the provincial cabinet as minister of housing on Thursday morning.

Responsibility for housing had previously been held by Children and Seniors Minister Paul Pike. Hutton, a former journalist and advisor to Premier Andrew Furey, recently won a by-election in Conception Bay East-Bell Island.

Pike wasn’t present at the ceremony, but he will remain the Minister of Children, Seniors and Social Development.

NTV’s Ben Cleary is covering the cabinet ceremony and will have more tonight on the NTV Evening Newshour.
