What about the GBGB reform programme?

  • The programme aims to halve within 3 years of 2018 the number of deaths on “economic grounds”, on-track and because no home could be found, with a broad objective to get to zero. This means 211 deaths of healthy dogs will be permitted per annum at a minimum.
  • The programme also includes: an underfunded retirement bond and injury recovery scheme, animal care apprenticeships, track surface reviews, a code of practice for trainers’ kennels, greyhound ambassadors; and the publication of annual stats which give partial transparency.
