The following notice was released this morning by Falkland Islands Legislative Councillor, Mrs. Andrea Clausen in her capacity as Chair of the Falkland Islands Development Board.

"It with great regret that I have to announce that the General Manager, Julian Morris, has this morning tendered his resignation and will leave his post in about three months time.

I have known that Julian has been considering future career options for some time and he has this morning advised me that he has decided to pursue other career options.

Julian has made a huge contribution to the work of the Development Corporation over the last 3 years and to the improvement of the Falkland Islands economy. Many people, businesses and projects have benefited from his advice and he will leave the Corporation in good shape. I know that I speak on behalf of all members of the Board in expressing regret at his decision.

The Board will be discussing arrangements to recruit a successor when it meets on 20th June and advertisements will be placed shortly with the aim of achieving a smooth transition."

Rumours that Mr. Morris was considering resignation were mentioned on the front page of today's Penguin News, the Islands' weekly newspaper, but were generally discounted.

Mr.Morris's resignation follows hard on the heels of that of the Falkland Islands Director of Tourism, Mrs. Connie Stevens, who left the Islands yesterday to work out her remaining notice in the UK.
