Karen Wheeler, director general of HMRC's Brexit border delivery group, has resigned. She was the lead official coordinating a cross-Whitehall response involving police, ports, customs and freight interests.
She had been in the post for two years.
A source quoted by the Guardian said:
“Nothing is happening in Whitehall now. Lots of people have been stood down on Brexit no-deal preparations and there is a general risk that people are just going to see this hiatus as an opportunity to clear off and go into the private sector,”Jon Thompson, HMRC’s chief executive, said in a statement:
“I would like to thank Karen for her outstanding work leading the Border Delivery Group to prepare the UK for EU exit and we wish her well for her retirement. We shall be announcing her successor in due course.”
Who's next Jon?
Tax does have to be taxing.
