The following have sent a joint letter of correspondence to the Rt Hon George Eustice MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs:
Lesley Robinson, Chief Executive, British Marine
Richard Parry, Chief Executive, Canal & River Trust
John Packman, Chief Executive, Broads Authority
The letter calls for urgent support for waterways businesses as the unprecedented impact of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic presents them with a unique challenge that puts their futures at risk.
I regret for some technical reason I have been unable to copy and post the letter here for your information but the full text would be available from Fran Read CRT national press officer.
