Horse Racing Ireland Bill 2015: Second Stage
As this might be our final opportunity, I thank the Minister for his co-operation in introducing the Bill. It is critical to follow through on the greyhound industry, as a report on that industry was launched today as well. The Indecon report dates back to 2010. We need corporate governance in that industry. Taxpayers are calling for it, as is the industry. The internal controls are very weak.
Fianna Fáil will be fully supporting the Bill and we hope the President signs it into law as soon as possible.
