Georgie Purcell MP - Last Week's Wins in Parliament


The Minister for Racing agreed to meet with rescue and rehoming groups

In their meeting Georgie shared an open letter from rescue groups, highlighting the rampant overbreeding by the industry and the crisis these groups are tackling. Anthony has agreed to meet with the groups cleaning up the greyhound racing industry’s mess and Georgie will keep us updated on what comes next, while she continues working for an inquiry.
