To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, with reference to the Second report of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee of Session 2015–16, Greyhound welfare published on 10 February 2016 and its recommendation that regulations should be extended beyond racetracks to cover standards at trainers’ kennels, if he will amend the Welfare of Racing Greyhound Regulations 2010.

I refer my hon. Friend to my answer of 25 June to the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme, Paul Farrelly, to PQ 265461. The Government is currently considering whether changes are required to the Welfare of Racing Greyhound Regulations 2010 to protect the welfare of racing greyhounds used by professional trainers not running greyhounds on tracks regulated by the industry regulator, the Greyhound Board of Great Britain.
