    Announcement
    Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has today (9 August 2021) appointed Tom Harris as a Non-Executive Director to the High Speed 2 (HS2) Limited Board. Tom has been appointed for a 3-year term, commencing on 1 July 2021, following an open and fair competition. Tom, who has been a Non-Executive Director on the HS2 Ltd Board since July 2020, was appointed as a community engagement leader to strengthen the company’s focus on community engagement, further ensuring that those impacted by HS2 continue to be listened to and treated with the respect they deserve. Tom, a former parliamentarian, was also a member of the Expert Challenge Panel supporting the government’s independent review of the railway industry, which recently resulted in the publication of the government’s plan to transform the railways in Great Britain, the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail. This appointment has been made in accordance with the Governance Code for public appointments. It follows the recent appointment of several other non-executive directors to the board to strengthen oversight and scrutiny of the UK’s largest infrastructure project Sir Jonathan Thompson in April this year, and Ian King and Elaine Holt last year. HS2 Minister Andrew Stephenson said: “I am delighted that Tom will be able to continue his important work ensuring that the company remains fully focused on the people the project impacts. “HS2 is committed to continuously improving its engagement with local communities and minimising the impact of construction wherever possible, through new best practices and cutting-edge innovation.” Tom Harris said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed to the HS2 Ltd Board. I’ve enjoyed being a part of this project over the past year, helping to strengthen the company’s focus on community engagement and ensure everyone impacted by the new railway feels they are being listened to and treated with respect. “As HS2 moves north, with work now underway on Phase 2a extending the line to Crewe, and the bill for the leg to Manchester currently being drafted, it’s more important than ever that HS2 Ltd is clear, concise and respectful in its dealings with those affected, and I look forward to ensuring that happens.” The process to appoint a new Chair of HS2 Ltd is underway, following Allan Cook’s departure on 31 July 2021. The vacancy for Chair of HS2 Ltd is regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments. Following the publication of the independent Oakervee review in February 2020, which recommended proceeding with HS2, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed the project would go ahead to deliver better connectivity across the country, greater capacity on the rail network and shorter journey times. Construction of Phase One of HS2 is now supporting over 16,000 jobs and more than 650 apprenticeships, with the project expected to have a lasting impact on jobs, skills and businesses in the UK, as part of the government’s Plan for Jobs. Over 2,100 companies now have contracts to deliver work on HS2 and 97% of these are UK-based businesses. In February 2021, the Phase 2a Bill was given Royal Assent in a historic milestone that will bring the new high-speed railway to the north.

Jones has been a non-executive member of the PPF Board since February 2016. The PPF plays a crucial role in protecting members of defined benefit pension schemes following the insolvency of an employer. If a scheme is unable to pay the pension it promised to its members, the PPF will ensure that compensation is paid. Minister for Pensions, Guy Opperman, said I look forward to building a constructive and effective relationship with Kate Jones as she takes on this new appointment as the Chair of the PPF. No doubt she will continue the excellent work the PPF has been doing in offering protection to nearly 10 million members of defined benefit pension schemes, paying hard-working savers compensation, should their employer become insolvent. Newly appointed Chair of the Pension Protection Fund, Kate Jones, said: I am proud to have the opportunity to lead the PPF in the next important phase of its evolution as we look to our future challenges, while always ensuring we’re able to continue to offer the very best protection to those who rely on us. I have been fortunate to serve on the PPF Board for the last five years, and I have been impressed with the dedication and care shown to our members and levy payers by the PPF employees. I look forward to working closely with them, our Board and executive team to further build our financial strength. I want to thank Arnold Wagner for his leadership of the Board, and his significant contribution to the PPF over the last 10 years. As the Chair, Jones will work closely with the Board, especially the Chief Executive, setting the direction for the organisation in a time of change and ensuring the PPF is managed effectively, and that PPF objectives and strategy are translated into clear management objectives. And crucially, she will act as an Ambassador for the PPF to ensure the positive and creditable reputation it enjoys is maintained and enhanced. Jones follows Arnold Wagner who will be stepping down from the role at the end of his five-year term this July. The PPF is a public corporation of the Department for Work and Pensions, and is run by an independent board. Further information The Chair is entitled to an annual remuneration of £60,000, based on a time commitment of around 104 days per year.

    Julia Mulligan is an experienced senior leader in the policing and fire sectors. For nearly nine years, she has been the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) for North Yorkshire, during a period of substantial change and challenge. She will stand down from her role as PFCC on 7 May. Julia has held a number of national roles, including six years as a Director of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), the national body for Police and Crime Commissioners. Her national portfolios included Transparency and Integrity, and joint lead for Victims and Violence Against Women and Girls, as well as co-chairing the APCC’s Race Disparity Working Group. In May 2020, Julia was appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority, which works to protect vulnerable and exploited workers. She is also a member of Dame Sara Thornton’s Advisory Panel which provides support and advice to the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, and a member of the national Fire Standards Board. Julia has a keen interest in supporting victims and vulnerable people, which is reflected in her role as Chair of Independent Domestic Abuse Services (IDAS), one of the largest specialist domestic abuse charities in the North of England. Julia Mulligan said I’d like to thank the Home Secretary for placing her confidence in me. Having served nearly nine years as a Police and Crime Commissioner, taking on the role of independent Chair represents a change in direction, but one in which I can continue to use my skills and experience to support policing. The PABEW considers important matters, and I’d like to extend my thanks to out-going Chair, Elizabeth France for her excellent work, as well as to the secretariat for their expertise and support. Looking ahead, we have a lot of work to do, which will need very careful consideration as the impact will be lasting. Getting things right for both the police workforce and public is important, as it will help put policing in the best possible position to continue its critical work of cutting crime and protecting the public. The role of the PABEW is to advise the Home Secretary about matters such as recruitment, diversity and collaboration between forces affecting the police in England and Wales. The PABEW was established as a non-departmental public body under section 46 of the Police Act 1964, now section 63 of the Police Act 1996. The Chair of the Board oversees several statutory functions including: advising the Home Secretary on general questions affecting the police in England and Wales considering draft regulations on matters other than hours of duty, leave, pay and allowance such as the issue, use and return of police clothing, personal equipment and accoutrements considering draft regulations related to pensions under section 1 of the Police Pensions Act 1976 establishing the Scheme Advisory Board (SAB) for the Police Pension Schemes, in accordance with s7 of the Public Service Pensions Act 2013 It may also consider any matter relating to conditions of service and any other matter affecting the police which has been referred to it by the Secretary of State. Julia has been appointed for 3 years from 16 April 2021.

    The Home Secretary has appointed Fraser Sampson as the government’s new independent Biometrics and Surveillance Camera Commissioner, replacing the two part time posts of the Biometrics Commissioner and Surveillance Camera Commissioner. The recruitment campaign was conducted in line with the Governance Code for Public Appointments. The statutory responsibilities and duties for both roles will remain the same. Fraser Sampson, who took up his post on 1 March, will promote compliance with the Surveillance Camera Code and rules on police use of DNA and fingerprints. The Home Secretary Priti Patel said I am pleased to appoint Fraser Sampson as the new Biometrics and Surveillance Camera Commissioner. It is vital the government works to empower police to use technology to keep the public safe while maintaining their trust and Fraser Sampson’s extensive experience in law and policing makes him the right person to take up this role. Fraser Sampson said: I’m delighted to have been appointed to cover these two distinct but increasingly overlapping roles. I look forward to working with all partners in what is a fast-moving and challenging area of balancing the public interest considerations with the rights of individuals.
