Bord na gCon is the commercial State body, established in 1958, under the Greyhound Industry Act, 1958, chiefly to control greyhound racing and to improve and develop the greyhound industry.

I regard it as important that representations are replied to as quickly as possible.

I am advised by Bord na gCon that a sub-committee has been established to examine the matter involved. My Department has been in contact with Bord na gCon requesting a progress report on the matter and I will revert to the Deputy as soon as that report has been received.
