The decision by the Labor Government to elevate the greyhound racing review to a Commission of Inquiry has been welcomed by Shadow Racing Minister Jann Stuckey.

“The LNP supports any action to end the abhorrent practice of live baiting exposed within the greyhound racing industry,” Ms Stuckey said.

“Some may well question if the Racing Minister acted swiftly and strongly enough when these practices were first raised. The LNP will be keeping a very close eye on this.”

“Queenslanders have been sickened by what they have seen and are demanding changes.”.she said.

A number of cases are already before the courts as police investigations continue.

“We commend the police for their ongoing investigations.” Ms Stuckey said.
