note 128

Sir Patrick Brown, Permanent Secretary at the Department of
Transport, announced today that he is retiring from the Civil

Sir Patrick said:

"The decision to merge the Departments of Environment and Transport
means that the time is ripe for me to leave the Whitehall stage. I
should emphasise that my departure was not motivated by any
difficulties or disagreement with the incoming Government, which some
commentators forecast before the election. On the contrary, I know
that Ministers appreciate that the transition to the new Government
has been managed with the skill and professionalism I have learned to
expect from my colleagues in the Department of Transport.

"I am naturally sad to leave the Civil Service, which has provided
such an enjoyable and stimulating second career. I hope that in due
course I might have the opportunity to embark on a third".
