Coalition welcomes report on Greyhound Racing Victoria

Minister for Racing Denis Napthine has welcomed the Victorian Ombudsman's findings regarding Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) saying the Victorian Coalition Government accepted all recommendations contained within the report.

Dr Napthine said the report raised a number of serious concerns relating to the administration of GRV, but it was encouraging to note the Ombudsman found there had been significant improvement in the organisation since the appointment of Peter Caillard as Chairman by the Coalition Government.

"It is pleasing to see that the Ombudsman's report found major improvements within GRV after Peter Caillard was appointed chairman of the board following the resignation of the previous chairman in July last year," Dr Napthine said.
