As a civil servant, I worked closely with JB last year particularly around COVID. He was always so kind in dealings with the most senior or the most junior colleagues, always listened and clearly cared deeply about the work he was doing. Even recently, I was in contact with him, and he remembered what I had moved onto, and asked after me and my family, despite all that he was dealing with. He will be missed by so many people.
