Subject: Fw: Appointment of GSK Vice President to Ofsted
Dear Mr Fiddaman
Further to my email to you this morning, please be advised as follows:
Paul Blackburn resigned as a non executive member of the Ofsted Board on 5th July. His resignation follows public concerns about the activities of his employer GSK. Paul did not want any negative press interest to detract from the excellent work of Ofsted and therefore resigned. As far as Ofsted is concerned the matter is now concluded.
Should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
