The Waterways Minister Richard Benyon has today made a written statement on the issue of transfer of the EA waters to CRT. He said that the Government has (therefore) decided that the Review planned for 2013/14 to consider options for the transfer will be postponed until Defra’s finances improve and there is a realistic prospect of the transfer being affordable and that it can take place on terms which would enable CRT’s Trustees to manage the additional liabilities involved.
