answer text <p>On 10th January 2019 the Government announced a new funding commitment from bookmakers, worth an estimated £3 million this year, to ensure the welfare of greyhounds is protected and improved. This commitment is set to increase the total amount of the voluntary levy bookmakers pay to the British Greyhound Racing Fund (BGRF) to an estimated £10m this year. We expect thousands of racing greyhounds will be better cared for as a result of this new deal.</p> more like this

We welcome the contribution British horseracing makes to the national economy and our quality of life. It is also a significant soft power asset to the UK, and enhances the strong bilateral relationships we have with the Gulf States and many other countries around the world.</p> more like this
