  1. Let me make the question simpler, the licence is statutory, but the trust are claiming their licence contract can override statute and any breach of this contract permits them to cancel this statutory licence. I don't see how this can possibly be lawful.
  2. Yes, same organisation. Just checking.
  3. Can anyone advise on if these contract terms are in line with the data protection act or any other legislation ? 7.8 You agree that we may provide your relevant personal details including your contact details such as your name and address to any person (or the insurer of any person) who we believe has a reasonable interest in an incident or alleged incident involving the Boat which will generally be the case where for example personal injury or damage to property may have occurred. 7.9 You agree that where we believe you have failed to comply with the Conditions, we ma
  4. Can I also direct you to this explanation, I have no connection to the organisation on the website. Nigel Moore is the man who took BW to court and won, he is probably the foremost expert on waterways legislation there is. http://http://kanda.boatingcommunity.org.uk/tag/nigel-moore/
  5. There is the problem, the meaning of this section is disputed, the Trust only quote part of the section but it also says " Subject to this Act and to any such enactment as is PART III mentioned in the last foregoing subsection" when this is taken into context what is the outcome ? The section in full. 43.-(1) Subject to this Act,- (a) all charges schemes under Part V of the Transport Act, 1947, shall cease to have effect, and (b) no local enactment passed or made with respect to any particular undertaking so far as it limits the discretion ,of the persons carry
  6. No, that section is the statutory conditions for a licence, 1, a boat safety certificate, 2, insurance, 3, a mooring or the intent to not stop in one place for more than 14 days.
  7. The 3 pre conditions for the issue of a licence are stated in the 1995 BW act, section 17, that act says a licence must be issued if those three conditions are met, it says nothing about contract terms.
  8. My correspondence with them has been minimal and polite, and my questions simple to answer, though I'm sure they would use this policy to stop me, they are a thoroughly dishonest organisation.
  9. I live on a canal boat, for which I am required by the 1995 British waterways act to have a licence, the licence is a statutory requirement, British waterways was changed to a charitable trust some years ago but the legislation that governs licences has not changed, the trust is now falsely claiming that this licence is now a contract which they can add their own terms and conditions to without any recourse to parliment, and can cancel at any time they choose if the boat owner breaches any condition they have invented. The trust has now " re interpreted " the
