Have your say

I believe the questions being raised in the Diss Express about religious slaughter, specifically non-stun slaughter and it’s labelling need to be answered by our politicians.

As I understand it, meat from animals slaughtered in this fashion is not intended for the secular market, but I suspect politicians are afraid to confront this issue, particularly as Lord Justice Sir John Laws appears to reject the principle of religious privilege in his ruling of April 2010, McFarlane vs Relate Avon Ltd.

We need our local members of parliament to enlighten us as to their views on this subject and more importantly what they propose to do about it.
