The Licence they refer to is not a Waterways Licence issued by the Navigation Authority but the equivalent of a driving licence. It will be a Brussels’ version of the ICC (International Certificate of Competence) and could become compulsory for all Boaters.
Do you want this? No! Then we must ensure our representatives in Brussels vote against this proposal and that the Waterways Minister here clearly understands the views of Boaters, TBA and all boating organisations in the UK.
Write to your MEP! They will be at the EU Parliament meeting on 11th December 2012.
