VICTORIA: Public submissions on the draft Code of Practice for the Keeping of Racing Greyhounds closed on 14 August 2017, with more than 1200 submissions received over the 60 day public comment period. The Andrews Labor Government will now carefully consider the submissions and respond to key issues raised in them - including making any necessary changes to the draft Code. Industry and welfare concerns have been heard, and the draft Code will be revised upon thorough consideration of the submissions and further consultation with stakeholders. In revising the draft Code, the purpose remains to ensure animal welfare is prioritised throughout the lifecycle of a racing greyhound, while achieving workable outcomes for participants in the racing industry.
