Dan Jarvis – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Culture Media and Sport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Dan Jarvis on 2014-04-08.

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, if his Department will take steps to encourage Betfair to recommence making payments to the voluntary British Greyhound Racing Fund.

Mrs Helen Grant

The Government would like to see greyhound racing remain a successful sport and encourages the greyhound and betting industries to continue to work constructively together, not least because they have a mutual interest in promoting effective welfare and integrity measures. However, the Government will not intervene in voluntary funding arrangements which are a matter for the Greyhound industry and its funders.
