HC Deb 14 May 1982 vol 23 c332W
Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take powers to require that a veterinary surgeon is in attendance at all greyhound tracks, whether licensed or unlicensed, in view of the policy of the British Veterinary Association on this matter.

Mr. Macfarlane

I have been asked to reply.

No. The extension to all tracks of the National Greyhound Racing Club rules requiring the attendance of a veterinary surgeon is a matter entirely for them, the British Veterinary Association and the management of the tracks concerned.
