Horse Racing (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2022

Amendment of the Horse Racing (Northern Ireland) Order 1990

Section 2 – Horse Racing Fund

This section amends Article 3 of the 1990 Order to take account of the amendment made by section 1, which inserted the definition of a horse racecourse operator to ensure that Fund will be used for assisting the operation and development of horse racecourses in the vicinity of the Maze and Downpatrick, in the County of Down. The effect of the amendments contained in this section is to require the horse racecourse operators to submit a statement of their proposed budget and expenditure plans for the following year to the Department on or before 31st October of each year. A new paragraph (4A) is inserted which allows each racecourse operator to submit their statement either on its own or together with any other horse racecourse operator.  Finally, this section omits paragraph (6), which concerns an organisation that no longer exists.
