CRT are talking earnestly to the Government about the renewal of their contract to operate the canal and river system.
Could there possibly be a worse time for CRT to negotiate a financial settlement with DEFRA and the Treasury?
But they are trying, and it is time for us to press our MPs to support CRT, despite our concerns about the organisation.
Remember that going back to Government-controlled BW would be a nightmare, just like the current EA.
So we need you all to write to your MP.
We have prepared a draft letter and you can find it here.
Please take time to personalise it and send it off in the next week or two.
It will make a difference.
Remember you to be effective, you should write to your own MP, quoting your address.
