Why doesn't the trust 'come clean'

AS IT seems the time for defending Victor, I would like to add my piece, writes James Henry.

I believe that the Canal & River Trust(?) [James' question mark] has no 'emergency works' as it states is the reason for cancelling so many winter stoppages or it would have told what the emergency was.

In winter stoppage season

The emergency repair of the Aire & Calder breach that took eight months to repair at a cost we were told of three millions did not seems to cause any winter stoppage cancellation though it started last December in the winter stoppage season.

So if there is such an emergency why doesn't the trust come 'clean' and tell as Victor suggests?
