That this House notes the importance of the British horseracing industry in contributing to the economy and job creation; praises the work of the British Horseracing Authority and Racing United in campaigning for a fair British horserace betting levy; acknowledges that the Horserace Betting Levy raises millions of pounds for local racecourses; is concerned that the amount paid to racecourses from the Horserace Betting Levy has fallen by a third in two years; and calls on the Horserace Betting Levy Board and the Government to close loopholes in the horserace betting levy to ensure local racecourses receive the funding they need.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
