The Written Ministerial Statement which accompanied the recent publication of the Wass Inquiry report, contained a commitment from the UK Government to appoint a senior UK official to oversee the implementation of the recommendations in the report.

SHG is pleased to confirm that Ginny Ferson, currently Deputy Governor of Bermuda (and former Deputy Governor of Pitcairn), has been appointed to undertake this role. Ginny is expected to depart for Ascension Island and St Helena at the end of January 2016 and will lead on supporting St Helena and Ascension Island Governments’ implementation of the recommendations in the report – and the UK Government’s update to Parliament by June 2016.

Ginny will be attached to the Governor’s Office and working with senior officials across SHG and AIG.
