including contributions from …
john fishwick, president of the british veterinary association
shimon cohen, of shechita uk
(Cohen, 0:03:45) “What they want to do is try to mislead the consumer into believing that animals that are stunned somehow undergo a gentle medicinal woozy-type stunning that sends them gently off to sleep so that they can then be dispatched in a painless manner. Now, that is so far from the truth as to be laughable.”
liz bowles of the soil association and labelling matters
david swales of the agriculture and horticulture development board

Shechita: Any Questions?

friday evening (7th march), 8.00-8.50pm on bbc radio 4
any questions with jonathan dimbleby, danny alexander mp, stephen dorrell mp, caroline flint mp, and louise bours includes “should religious views override animal welfare?

Louise Bours (UKIP): “To eat meat, we have to kill livestock, they have to be killed in as humane a way as possibly can be, do we want to stun an animal before we kill the animal, or do we go with the moslem and jewish communities who believe that ritual slaughter is actually the most humane way?
I don’t think it’s something we can really legislate either for or against at all …
So what I would like to see is a choice for people: if we label things correctly, maybe then people can choose how their meat was dealt with when it was slaughtered, halal or non-halal: i think that is the way to go.” (more…)
