star this property answer text <p>The Agriculture Bill currently going through parliament provides the powers necessary to support sustainable livestock production by making payments to farmers for adopting approaches to farm husbandry that improve animal health and welfare and which protect the farmed environment. It also creates the powers needed to improve fairness and transparency in the supply chain so that livestock farmers can provide a fairer price for the food they produce. Finally, the government aims to secure a deep and comprehensive free trade deal with the EU that continues to provide for frictionless, tariff-free trade.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Condition 6 of Part 1 of the Schedule to the Welfare of Racing Greyhounds Regulations 2010 requires the operator of a greyhound racing track to keep records for 10 years of details of any injuries sustained by greyhounds during a race, trial or sales trial. The records must be completed by the attending veterinary surgeon but there is no requirement on tracks to make this information available publicly. However, we would expect the injury records to be reviewed by the veterinary surgeon and track manager on a regular basis to determine if injury rates are changing. How these records are being used will be one of the issues looked at during the five-year review of the Regulations.</p><p> </p> more like this
