Treasury appoints director-general of tax and welfare

INDRA MORRIS has been appointed director-general of tax and welfare by HM Treasury.

She moves up from her position as director of personal tax, welfare and pensions at the department, replacing Edward Troup, who has taken the commissioner for tax assurance position at HM Revenue & Customs.

Morris started her career in the civil service at the Department of Social Security – now the Department of Work and Pensions – where she worked on child support policy and housing benefit, before undertaking a secondment to the Treasury, where she was involved in designing what would become Jobcentre Plus.

She then spent nine years with Accenture from 2001, becoming partner in 2005, before returning to the Treasury in 2010.

The appointment begins in early November.
