Greyhound Racing

In reply to the Hon. T.A. FRANKS ().21 February 2023).

The Hon. C.M. SCRIVEN (Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, Minister for Forest Industries): The Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing has advised:

In 2000, South Australia corporatised the racing industry. The corporatisation fundamentally changed the state government's involvement in the management of the racing industry, including Greyhound Racing SA (GRSA).

The honourable member could consider contacting GRSA for further information.

The state government takes animal welfare very seriously and the minister has recently written to GRSA requesting they consider a review of their current hot weather policy.
