NEW SOUTH WALES:  The NSW Government will give in principle support for greyhound racing to have one final chance in NSW, subject to industry agreeing to the strictest regulations that exist anywhere in the country to clamp down on animal cruelty.   Former Premier Morris Iemma will chair a Greyhound Industry Reform Panel that will determine the new regime for greyhound racing in NSW. Subject to the Panel’s recommendations, legislation would be introduced early in 2017 to repeal the ban and deliver the new regime under which racing would operate.
