The government's intention to merge the CRT navigations with the EA was still on the table and TUGn members wanted to know how CRT would be handling this. We were advised that discussions had indeed taken place between both parties but nothing has happened yet because of the flood situation. Mr Parry accepted that TUGn should be right at the start of any serious discussions. It is expected that the subject will also be on the agenda for a report from the EA on the Thames Navigation User Forum now scheduled for 1 April, 2014.
