P-06-1354 Dylai Llywodraeth Cymru gefnogi rasio milgwn yng Nghymru

The Welsh Government are currently considering banning greyhound racing in
This potential ban has been brought on through a petition submitted by a
charity. I believe the information used to create that petition was not
factually correct and that they used massively inflated figures on the number
of injured greyhounds with no supporting evidence. The charity has been asked
for evidence on multiple occasions but refused. The petition gained 35k
signatures but less than 19k of these signatures came from within Wales.
Banning greyhound racing would have an economic impact on individuals
involved in the industry. There would also be a direct impact on the Valleys
Stadium, and the medium and long term development of the Ystrad Mynach area.
There would also be a negative impact on the greyhound breed.
Valley Greyhound Stadium is currently in the process of becoming a GBGB
All tracks licensed by GBGB must adhere to the regulator’s Rules of Racing
which seek to uphold the very highest standards of greyhound welfare and
integrity. There are over 200 rules covering all aspects of how the sport is
run and regulated including how greyhounds are cared for when they are at the
track, at home in their trainer’s residential kennels, when being transported
and into their retirement.
The Senedd currently has a cross party group to support horse racing in
Wales, we ask that the same support is shown for greyhound racing.
