    OF THE 21 MINISTERS COMPRISING THE NEW CABINET ONLY FOUR ARE NEWCOMERS. TWO HAVE CHANGED THEIR OFFICES. ONE NOTABLE ABSENTEE IS HERR FRANZ JOSEF STRAUSS THE FORMER DEFENCE MINISTER. HE TOLD WEST GERMAN TELEVISION VIEWERS RECENTLY THAT THE HAD BEEN OFFERED A POST IN THE NEW CABINET BUT HAD REFUSED IT.

    A NEWCOMER TO THE CABINET IS DR RICHARD JAEGER. HE HAS BECOME MINISTER OF JUSTICE. DR JAEGER IS A CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE IN GERMANY AND WAS ONCE DESCRIBED BY THE FREE DEMOCRATS AS BEING TOO "LIBERAL".

    DR ERICH MENDE IS VICE-CHANCELLOR AND MINISTER FOR ALL GERMAN AFFAIRS. DR GERHARD SCHROEDER - ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN POLITICAL FIGURES IN WEST GERMANY - FILLS THE POST OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS MINISTER. MUCH OF HERR SCHROEDER'S WORK WILL BE COMPLIMENTARY TO THE DEFENCE DEPARTMENT HEADED AGAINST BY HERR KAI-UWE VON HASSEL.

    PRESIDENT LUEBKE - FORMALLY NOMINATING CHANCELLOR ERHARD'S CABINET YESTERDAY - SAID THAT THERE MUST BE AND END TO THE INTERNAL QUARRELS WHICH MARKED THE LAST COALITION.
