The format of the injury and retirement data published by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) for the first time in March this year was requested and approved by Defra. Alongside publication of the data, which has been independently verified, the GBGB also made several commitments to improve the figures, which the Government has welcomed. Defra will continue to monitor the data, and the progress of GBGB’s commitments.
