Lancashire County Councillors have recently voted to end the supply of unstunned meat to schools.
SfA commends those who supported this move.
We’re concerned however that the ban only applies to “non-poultry” products which means meat from chickens slaughtered while conscious will still be fed to kids.
Worth noting, as they go to great lengths to solicit the animal rights/ welfare vote, that the Green Party Councillor voted to keep unstunned meat on the menu.
The non-stun industry is playing fast and loose with the law, and the ones with the power to act are turning a blind eye.
We can’t allow hard won welfare improvements to be nullified by the back door. Visit our unstunned slaughter campaign page to take action.
