P-04-399 Slaughter Practises – Petitioner to the Clerking Team 15.10.15


Hiya Kayleigh, I have just read this from Walesonline.....President of the British Veterinary Association (BVA), Robin Hargreaves is urging political leaders in Wales to get behind a vet-led campaign to end the cruel non-stun slaughter of livestock.

Writing to party leaders at the National Assembly, Mr Hargreaves emphasised the animal welfare issues involved in non-stun slaughter and the strength of public feeling about the issue.

European and UK legislation requires all animals to be stunned before slaughter to render them insensible to pain. However, an exemption in UK law allows animals to be slaughtered without stunning for certain religious communities – Dhabihah slaughter for Halal food and Shechita slaughter for Kosher food. i would like you to inform the Petitions Committee of this important News release please,

Kind Regards

Royce Clifford....
