Thanks for your question!
Cabinet can direct that a bill—proposed law—be drafted to make or change a law. For example, if the Cabinet decides to introduce a bill to do with health, the Minister for Health works with the Department of Health to prepare the bill. If the bill passes the Australian Parliament, the minister and their department are responsible for putting the law into action. Cabinet can also direct a government department to investigate an issue and make recommendations. A Cabinet decision might be carried out by the relevant minister directing their department to take steps to implement a policy.
