I think the Minister deserves a separate page from the Ministry; i.e., the office of Secretary of State in the US should have a separate page from the Department of State. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and its various incarnations, has a unique status and history, separate from the role of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, whose role has been around for much longer than the department.
I agree, the Minister is quite distinct from the Ministry and should have separate page.
I disagree with the proposed merger, for reasons stated above. --Lholden 04:11, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
I also believe they should not be merged, and agree with the above reasons. Since there seems to be a consensus, and the tags have been up for months, I'll remove them. -- Avenue 09:37, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
The first line says that the post is a major Cabinet portfolio - but then we're told that Peters is outside Cabinet. How are those reconciled? I see the "under a special agreement" bit, but that is not explained properly or indeed at all. 126.96.36.199 04:47, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
Quite true. I've amended the article to hopefully better describe the current odd situation. -- Vardion 06:07, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
