Meanwhile, over at The Student Loans Company (suspended CEO being none other than Steve Lamey ex HMRC CEO & CIO)
The BBC reprost that there has been a call for an urgent inquiry into problems at the Student Loans Company which led to the suspension of its chief executive.
"Shadow Universities Minister Gordon Marsden said the firm was near "meltdown" and urged the Universities Minister to address the problems.Mr Marsden wrote to Mr Johnson, asking him to clarify the details around the suspension and the nature of the associated investigation.
The Department for Education suspended Steve Lamey in July without saying why.
A DfE spokesman defended the student loans system and said Jo Johnson would respond in due course.
In early July, a statement from the DfE said: "The Student Loans Company, in consultation with the Department for Education, took the decision to suspend the chief executive, pending an investigation into concerns which have been raised.
"The suspension is a neutral act and does not imply wrongdoing.
"As the matters leading to suspension are now subject to an independent investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
He told the BBC:
"Whilst the full details have yet to become clear, the Student Loans Company appears to be approaching a situation of meltdown.Well then, HMRC keep churning out these "high-flyers"!
There needs to be an urgent, substantial inquiry into all aspects of the way they operate with HMRC.
This worrying situation has been compounded by an ongoing stream of accounts over the past few months in the media, and based on numerous individual stories appearing, of the inadequacies of the Student Loans Company to properly administer student loans and specifically repayments."
Tax does have to be taxing.
