THERESE October 12th, 2021

James was highly regarded by colleagues and seen as a safe pair of hands who always had time to talk to every colleague about the latest issue in their inbox. I particularly remember working with him on Grenfell when he was absolutely assiduous in leading the ministerial group as SoS, painstakingly making sure every issue was covered considerately and competently. He was an excellent Minister and will be much missed.
