Notes

The relevant section, at present, reads:

16% of Britain's houseboats are classified as continuous cruisers; these lack a home mooring and so are expected to be used, as the name suggests, primarily for 'bona fide navigation'. The Canal and Rivers Trust, which is in charge of the oversight of boats under this status, has used a variety of definitions in its guidance since the passing of the Act and over time has frequently changed the severity of its application. Recently, guidance has been changed to add that 'Unacceptable reasons for staying longer than 14 days in a neighbourhood or locality are a need to stay within commuting distance of a place of work or of study (e.g. a school or college).' The result of this is that many hard-working families suffer due to such changing guidance; this amendment seeks to ensure that workers and families have a legally defined period to seek alternative accommodation, as opposed to the inconsistent notice periods accorded at present. *

Literally a little bit of wording as Krollo is unable to make the changes he needs to at the moment.
