Labour Council ‘Refuses To Name’ Schools That Serve Non-Stun Halal Meat
Kirklees Council, which is run by Labour, is facing intense pressure from parents and even local MPs to name the schools that are serving meat from slaughtered animals that have not been pre-stunned. They say its “inappropriate” for parents to be told which schools serve the meat.
However, their stance has set them on a collision course with the local Labour MP, Tracy Brabin, who says parents should be “informed” despite, of course, adding the usual PC byline about “religious sensitivities”.
Conservative Councillor Lisa Holmes (Liversedge and Gomersal) has submitted a written a question asking if Kirklees Council is the country’s “biggest user of meat from animals that have their throats slit while fully conscious – despite 80% of all UK halal meat being humanely stunned first, which is accepted by the Halal Food Authority?”
Meanwhile an online petition calling for all meat served in the borough’s schools to be stunned before slaughter has been signed by more than 5,600 people.
