Motion text

That this House is alarmed by evidence suggesting that many healthy but unprofitable thoroughbreds are slaughtered in British abattoirs or shot in racing yards every year; notes that more than 170 horses die or are destroyed due to racecourse injuries annually; calls on the Government to take steps to ensure that a full audit of racehorse production, death and injury is produced and put into the public domain, and that this initiative should include the speedy online publication of the name of each horse killed and details of where and how the fatality occurred; and urges the Government to act decisively to remedy the problems of racehorse over-production.
