Date(s) - 1st July 2015
Following a statement in the House of Commons on 25th June by the Secretary of State, the role of Public Members ceases to exist from July 1st. Given the AGM was scheduled for the 15th July, this came as a surprise on timing, but it was clear that there was too much Governance once the debt was classified as government debt and the Dept of Transport became involved in Network Rail oversight and Governance.
The 46 Public Members will have a final meeting on 14th July to be thanked for our contribution.
My term of office was due to cease in November 2015 and I had not applied to serve a second term.
