Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion, which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes:

(i) that tens of millions of dollars in public money is handed over to the greyhound racing and gambling industry each year by states and territories in prize money, for building new tracks and in tax breaks,

(ii) Greyhounds Australasia estimates that the industry is responsible for the unnecessary deaths of anywhere between 13 000 and 17 000 healthy greyhounds a year, and

(iii) that millions of Australians want to see greyhound racing banned on animal welfare grounds, and do not want to see public money subsidising greyhound racing and gambling; and

(b) calls on state and territory governments to withdraw public funding of greyhound racing, and put the tens of millions of dollars towards health, education and drought relief.
