There are currently three draft Bills under preparation in my Department:

1. Horse Racing Ireland (Amendment) Bill 2014; 2. A Bill to amend the Sea Fisheries and Maritime Jurisdiction Act, 2006 ; 3. Greyhound Industry (Amendment) Bill 2014 .

The General Scheme of the Horse Racing Ireland (Amendment) Bill 2014 has been through pre-legislative scrutiny but has not yet been initiated as it has to be drafted by the Office of the Attorney General.

Neither the Greyhound Bill nor the Sea-Fisheries Bill have been initiated or submitted for pre-legislative scrutiny as yet but will be progressed in due course.
