He said that the new measures will take effect immediately. This might mean that racing stops tonight?

The emergency bill goes to the Lords on Tuesday for Thursday implantation. It has to be passed in law. The racing authorities may take action before

Well, that is how I understand how it works. The bill was only passed today in the commons

Definitely said as of tonight.

I'd have thought no racing tomorrow now.

"From this evening I must give the British people a very simple instruction - you must stay at home"  Either that is correct to the point or it is a figure of speech and it comes into law Wed for three weeks.....Again a bit not so sure,we will have to await more detail

Can't see an entire industry, such as greyhound racing, bending a law on the semantics of tomorrow or Wednesday, in such a grave situation as this. It's not worth them annoying authorities, police, government for the sake of a day or two.

I agree with you Darlo on that.

Sad to see it happen but very surprised they raced on for the past week.

A balancing act between the economics of a struggling industry and bad publicity for keeping on.

I hope it doesn't last too long but rather relieved to see it come to a stop.

After, the utter stupidity of Sports Direct last night may well cause a backlash against them when this is all over. Be shame to see the media turn on the dogs if they have carried on.

GBGB

“As previously announced, we will therefore be releasing funds for greyhound and professional trainers to assist them in the coming weeks to provide food and bedding for their greyhounds.

“This will constitute 50p per day per dog for each trainer and will include puppies and retired greyhounds, as well as current racers.

“This contingency eliminates – in the short term – any risk to trainers not being able to meet the basic welfare needs of their greyhounds due to loss of income.

50 P a day  ,WTF  what will that do are they having a larf ???

If anyone can a Foster for a few weeks Might help out ??   Is that allowed ???

We cant leave the poor foookers starving ,3/4 weeks they may cope, any longer ,Disater looms

Another load of starving or dead dogs and the Game will be over  ,Any trainer owner struggling needs to make it known

You cant buy a foooking bone for 50P

I am in the Northeast Pelaw my local any trainer struggling I will take a dog for a few weeks , probably kill me giving it back ,  not sure how many Trainer owners at Sun or Toon ...No good all shouting and roaring when it goes t1ts up , and Blaming people , some trainers will have enough problems looking after their Kids never mind the dogs ....
