Labour cabinet meeting, 1984

This July 1984 photo shows the first cabinet meeting of the newly elected Labour government led by David Lange (fourth from the bottom on the left side of the table). The 20-member cabinet set two records: firstly, for including two woman members, Margaret Shields and Ann Hercus (seated together at right rear) and secondly, for including the youngest-ever minister, Phil Goff (at the head of the table), who was aged 31. Goff was elected party leader in 2008.
