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 matters referred to by the Deputy are operational matters for Bord na gCon and I have therefore asked them to provide the information requested directly to the Deputy.
