3388. Hon Alison Xamon to the minister representing the Minister for Racing and Gaming:

I ask how often greyhound kennels are inspected by the stewards of Racing and Wagering Western Australia?

Hon Alannah MacTiernan replied:

For the period between 1 August 2019 to 31 July 2020 Greyhound Stewards conducted a total of 206 inspections.

Given that there are approximately 192 licensed trainers, this ensures that almost all active trainers kennels are inspected at least once per year.

These figures do not include those other occasions Stewards attend properties for other reasons.
