This extension to Dr Sefton's contract beyond his planned retirement date of 14 April 2005 has been agreed by both HSE Director General Timothy Walker and ORR Chairman Chris Bolt.

'I am very happy to stay on in HSE until the HMRI merger with the ORR. HSE is committed to ensuring that rail health, safety and welfare standards are maintained throughout the transition period and to manage the change process effectively. HMRI is currently implementing a major internal reorganisation to improve its own effectiveness, and to discharge its changing statutory functions with greater consistency and timeliness. These new arrangements will be in place from April. My aim is to lead into ORR a re-invigorated inspectorate that is adding real value to the industry's continuing efforts to improve its management of risk and deliver a reliable and therefore safe railway.'
