Is Ms Yourell suggesting that we should amend the legislation or that there is no point as the sport is beyond saving?

Everybody is concerned about the enforcement of legislation. When legislation is enacted one is always concerned about whether it will be enforced and implemented but that is a separate argument. Are there suitable amendments? Is there a type of legislation that will address the concerns of the organisation and save greyhound racing?
