Peter Dutton

Peter Craig Dutton (born 18 November 1970), Australian politician, has been a Liberal member of the Australian House of Representatives representing the Division of Dickson, Queensland since the November 2001 federal election when he defeated high-profile Labor sitting member Cheryl Kernot. Dutton has been the Minister for Health and the Minister for Sport since 18 September 2013.

Dutton contested and won Dickson at the 2010 federal election, achieving a swing of 5.45% to easily overcome the 2009 redistribution.

This resulted in a two-party preferred outcome of 54.69% as of 23 August 2010. Following the 2010 election, he was appointed as Shadow Minister for Health & Ageing.

Dutton is regarded by some as a potential future leader of the Liberal Party.
