Amend rules regarding religiously slaughtered meat

Petition Details

Halal and kosher meat must be intended for consumption by Jews or Muslims, but we believe this requirement is too vague and open to misuse producers who use religious slaughter methods, and results in excess meat being slaughtered in this way and passed on without labelling.

Additional Information

The Government should require that meat slaughtered religiously should only be for consumption by Jews or Muslims, and that all halal and kosher meat is labelled clearly at the point of retail, both at shops and eateries, so that all consumers are able to choose whether to purchase meat that has been slaughtered in this way.


If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
