Why the review took place.
The issue was addressed by shortening the period of continuous racing, but the BHB decided to set up the Stable Staff Resources Study Group, under the chairmanship of its Industry Committee-nominated director Lady Burnham, to look at the wider issues of stable-staff recruitment.
The group was charged with:
nCarrying out a full analysis of existing human resources and working practices in training yards
nRecommending how adjustments might be made to improve the staffing situation as the BHB develops the racing product
nTaking account of employment legislation, both national and European
nExamining employment practices in other relevant and comparable industries
nMaking recommendations for beneficial change.
