No transfer of EA waterways to CRT

The transfer of Environment Agency waterways to Canal & River Trust control will not now take place, at least for the foreseeable future.  In a letter to CRT in January, the Department for Food, Agriculture & Rural Affairs said it was “not minded” to go ahead with the transfer, after terms could not be agreed on the limits of control and financing.
