Information Request, Canal & River Trust

Dear Marcus,

Request Reference: 35/20

Following on from my acknowledgement email on 05/03/2020 we have treated your request as a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

I am writing to confirm that the information you have requested is not held by the Canal & River Trust. Given the complexity of the Trust and its operations, there isn't a single role profile entitled "CRT Mooring Ranger” and there are multiple roles within the Trust that could be classed within the definition of Mooring Ranger within different pay brackets.

Furthermore, the Trust under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 are limited in scope to information relating to statutory functions which were transferred to it from British Waterways under the British Waterways Board (Transfer of Functions) Order under 2012 – these functions relate to the operation and licensing of vessels on our inland waterway network.

The information you have requested does not relate to the operation or maintenance of our waterways, rather it is in relation to the salaries of Canal & River Trusts employees. Therefore, the information you have requested also falls outside the scope of the Act.

You can view a copy of the transfer of functions order using the following link https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2012...

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of this email and should be sent by email to [email address] or by post to Information Officer, Legal Department, Canal and River Trust, Aqua House, 20 Lionel Street, Birmingham, B3 1AQ. You are also able to contact the Information Commissioner by telephoning 0303 123 1113 although please note they would usually expect you to have gone through our internal review procedure before contacting them.

Many Thanks,

Dear Information Request,

Ok I will be more specific, what is the average wage of the London Mooring Rangers?

Yours sincerely,

Marcus

Information Request, Canal & River Trust

Dear Marcus,

As previously mentioned the information you have requested does not relate to the operation or maintenance of our waterways, rather it is in relation to the salaries of Canal & River Trusts employees within our Mooring team. Therefore, the information you have requested also falls outside the scope of the Act.

However I can confirm that a london mooring ranger salary would fit into our Green salary band which has a range between 22,759 minimum and 31,806.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of this email and should be sent by email to [email address] or by post to Information Officer, Legal Department, Canal and River Trust, Aqua House, 20 Lionel Street, Birmingham, B3 1AQ. You are also able to contact the Information Commissioner by telephoning 0303 123 1113 although please note they would usually expect you to have gone through our internal review procedure before contacting them.

Dear Information Request,

Thank you for what you have provided. However, I don't understand why salaries of Canal & River Trusts employees not come under operation or maintenance of CRT waterways. Could you please explain?

Yours sincerely,

Marcus

Information Request, Canal & River Trust

Dear Marcus,

Thank you for your email.

This is because the provision of moorings is a commercial activity for the Trust and one where we face competition from other marinas and mooring providers across the network. There is no statutory obligation on the Trust to provide this function. Since the provision of moorings was not one of the statutory functions transferred to the Trust in the Transfer of Functions Order 2012 any information in relation to moorings or employees who work for waterside moorings does not class as operation and maintenance of the waterways and therefore falls outside the scope of the Act.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
Hannah

It would appear that CRT are unaware of or are ignoring what happened at an Information Tribunal yesterday -

https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

Dear Information Request,

Is it correct that CRT mooring rangers help enforce CRT terms and conditions on the casual moorings?
Are casual moorings part of your commercial activity?

Yours sincerely,

Marcus

Marcus,

Canal & River Trust, is subject to FOI, in respect of information held by it relating to functions exercisable by it by virtue of the British Waterways Board (Transfer of Functions) Order 2012
It is quite clear that your request falls within the scope of the FOI as it applies to CRT.

The power to charge for services and facilities provided and to make them subject to conditions under section 43 of the Transport Act 1962 was transferred to the Trust from British Waterways. This is the power that allows C&RT to charge for long term moorings and make them subject to regulation.

Referring to casual mooring (aka short term moorings)
CRT also has limited powers to control mooring transferred under various British Waterways Acts and byelaws. Furthermore, it also claims it can impose conditions via section 43 and impose charges.

If you wish to progress this, you need to ask CRT to carry out an review of its decision to refuse the request.

If you are unhappy with its response you can then make a complaint to the information commissioner.
