Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Bord na gCon is a commercial state body, established under the Greyhound Industry Act, 1958 chiefly to control greyhound racing and to improve and develop the greyhound industry.  Bord na gCon is a body corporate and a separate legal entity to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

 The matter raised by the Deputy is an operational matter for Bord na gCon and I have therefore asked them to respond to the Deputy directly on this query.
