Have your say

Following your article (Halal slaughtering facility to set up in Eye factory, June 6) I would like to ask why the halal method of slaughter is allowed in our country?

The method of killing animals slitting their throats without pre stunning is not only cruel but totally unacceptable in the 21st Century.

I have myself been involved in organisations trying to putting a stop to this method of slaughter in the UK, but it seems that the answer from the powers that be is it is a religious requirement of some religions.
