SUPREMACY OF HALAL MEAT IN BRITAIN Response to your Query : - Ref:DWOE000418933 - Re: Halal Labelling

Dear Mr Potter,
 
Thank you for your two emailed replies (20 December and 16 January) which rely upon Britain’s exit from the EU to decide whether or not Halal food products in this country should be labelled for consumers’ knowledge.  Are we to await exit from the EU before being informed whether the coffee we drink is caffeinated or that the eggs we consume are free range ? 
 
The food we eat in the UK and its method of production have nothing whatsoever to do with Britain’s leaving the EU and though you say Halal labelling is a commercial decision for food business operators, every one of them clearly state they await direction from Government.  Evidently nobody intends to do anything about this important matter.  But as the public become increasingly informed, it will not go away.
 
Under English Constitutional and Common Law which prevails despite the EU, the King’s and the people’s servants in Parliament are duty bound to support the King in defending the Christian Faith according to his sworn coronation oath.  They are also required by law to protect the King and the nation against all forms of foreign intervention.  Permitting foreign interference in the running of the United Kingdom and affecting its culture and customs contrary to the nation’s interests and Christian belief, is an act of Treason. 
 
As the result, the British people have a lawful right to live their lives according to English Christian custom which includes knowing what they eat, how it was prepared and that it is not tainted in any way by foreign demand, especially that of the 4% minority uninvited to this country or indeed foreign principles and beliefs dating from the 7th Century.  As it is Parliament’s duty to run the country for the British people and not some other foreign political interest (Treason), it is for Government to guarantee the quality, appropriateness and consumer confidence in the food the nation consumes.  This does not mean the double standards of Westminster restaurants banning Halal for the benefit of parliamentary members while the nation is expected to accept and unwittingly consume unlabelled Halal food simply because a minority culture alien to this country believes we should live as they demand.
 
The additionally reported issues of unhygienic and filthy slaughter premises, that some carcasses should never enter the food chain but do so under bribe and that inspectors are in some instances intimidated from criticising slaughter houses are further concerns about which many British people are not necessarily aware, but that demand urgent attention in order to maintain the standards of hygiene and food quality that people rightly expect.
 
You might perhaps enjoy eating meat from animals terrified in their inhumane slaughter, but rest assured you will be very much in the minority.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
GRP

Dear Mr Poulton,

HALAL LABELLING

Thank you for your further email letter of 21 December to the Secretary of State about the labelling of Halal meat. I have been asked to reply, and am sorry you were unhappy with our previous reply.

The Secretary of State is unable to answer, acknowledge, or see all the correspondence she receives daily, which is why letters are passed on to relevant officials for reply.

I can only reiterate that that the Government believes that consumers should have the necessary information available to them to make an informed choice about their food. This is an issue we are considering in the context of the UK’s exit from the EU and the possible introduction of national labelling.

Yours sincerely,

Douglas Potter

Rex,
 
"The government encourages the highest standards of welfare at slaughter.."!!    But does little to enforce them!!      Look at the reports of filthy premises, terrified animals, some carcasses which should never enter the human food chain, being slipped in for bribes.   Utter chaos and dangerous to public health.    Inspectors are intimidated and frankly the way things are moving, it will be a job to find inspectors willing to go into and criticise Islamic slaughter-houses, lest THEY end up in the food-chain themselves!!
 
Like so much in this slap-dash country, it looks good on paper but fails totally in practice.

For those concerned about the un-labelling of Halal meat, the DEFRA civil service speak response is second down below my reply today (Wednesday 21 December).
 
If you feel strongly enough, you might be inclined to write your own disgusted email to them all ( ? )

Dear Mr Potter,
 
Thank you for your reply which explains nothing and carefully evades all of the issues my email to Mrs Leadsom and Mr Eustace raised.  Please re-read my original email below.
 
My email was sent to the Secretary of State and to the Minister of State in expectation of their personal reply as responsibly minded MPs, to the concerns that the British public hold in this important matter.
 
It is a sad reflection upon Government that after many years of this protracted enquiry, you persist in directing public complaint to the food business operators who repeatedly refer enquirers back to DEFRA for the Halal labelling decision that they await before taking positive action. 
 
This unsatisfactory back and forth shrugging of responsibility has prevailed for far too long when Government is employed to ensure that British food is properly fit for consumption under to the nation’s Christian Faith according to English custom and Common Law  -  which Government solemnly binds itself to uphold. 
 
WHEN will the British public be freely able to eat meat in their own country without it being universally unlabelled Halal for the benefit of the 4% Muslim minority ?
 
Yours sincerely,
 
G R Poulton

Dear Mr Poulton,

HALAL LABELLING

Thank you for your email of 11 December about the labelling of Halal meat and products. I have been asked to reply.

The Government understands that you feel strongly about this issue. It is a very emotive topic. The Government encourages the highest standards of welfare at slaughter and would prefer to see all animals stunned before they are slaughtered for food. However, as you are aware, we also respect the rights of the Jewish and Muslim communities to eat meat prepared in accordance with their religious beliefs.

The Government is aware that there is public concern about meat from animals slaughtered in accordance with religious beliefs being sold to consumers who do not require their meat to be prepared in this way, and there are calls for such meat to be labelled. Currently, labelling or otherwise describing a product as Halal or Kosher is a commercial decision for the food business operator, including the use of independent certification organisations. However, where any information of this nature is provided, it must be accurate and must not mislead the consumer under the General Food Law Regulation (EC) 178/2002 and the Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU) 1169/2011.

I can confirm that the Government believes that consumers should have the necessary information available to them to make an informed choice about their food. This is an issue we are considering in the context of the UK’s exit from the EU and the possible introduction of national labelling.

Yours sincerely,

Douglas Potter

Dear Mrs Leadsom,
 
In the interests of Britain’s Christian faith, when will you announce that except a small minority of Halal products clearly labelled, all UK meat will be of animals slaughtered according to Christian principle ? 
 
The vast majority of meat consumed in Britain is unlabelled Halal.  WHY ?  The people are not told of this.  While Westminster restaurants have long since banned Halal meat, it is apparently considered appropriate for the British population.  Yet for Christians, it is as distasteful to eat as alsation or horsemeat masquerading as beef.
 
Most if not all major meat suppliers sell only Halal.  The supermarkets and many restaurants fail to state whether their meat is Halal, often from abroad.  They insist they await your instruction to label Halal while doing little to provide Britain’s 96% Christian customers with non-Halal meat.
 
UK Muslims account for 4% of Britain’s population.  Yet British manufacturers and outlets pander to Islamic demand for widespread Halal food.  Even Cadburys chocolate and Kelloggs cereals (the list is considerable http://halalfoodauthority.com/our-members) are Halal accredited presumably meaning that consumers of these products contribute indirectly to Islamic funds.  Would Britain’s Christians knowingly do this ?
 
When will Britain’s food be Christianised ?
 
Yours sincerely,
G R Poulton

France passes bill ordering CCTV in slaughterhouses
Posted 13 January 2017
On 12 January France passed a bill ordering slaughterhouses to install CCTV cameras, following an outcry over animal cruelty. Members of the French National Assembly were informed that lawbreaking is a widespread problem in the nation’s abattoirs.
The new bill requires slaughterhouses to install CCTV cameras across all areas, including in lairages and on the killing floor, by 2018. A trial will take place this year to inform how the technology will be rolled out across the board. Those caught inflicting unlawful cruelty on animals could face one year in prison.
Animal Aid – one of the UK’s leading animal protection organisations – is today calling on George Eustice MP, Minister for DEFRA, to bring forward similar measures to ensure the use of independently-monitored CCTV becomes mandatory in UK slaughterhouses, in an effort to combat unlawful animal cruelty. We have reason to believe lawbreaking is a widespread problem in UK slaughterhouses, potentially worse than the situation in France which resulted in legislation being passed.
Animal Aid has uncovered unlawful practices being conducted in 9 out of 10 UK abattoirs investigated. This includes cigarettes being stubbed out on pigs, sheep being picked up and thrown by their fleeces and other animals being stamped on. Furthermore, Food Standards Agency audits show that not a single UK slaughterhouse was in full compliance when checked. The Food Standards Agency, alongside a cross-party representation of more than 200 MPs and the British Veterinary Association now support mandatory CCTV.
Says Farming and Slaughter Campaigns Manager, Luke Steele:
‘Animal Aid’s covert filming has found lawbreaking in 90 per cent of slaughterhouses investigated, which has included cigarettes being stubbed out on pigs, sheep being picked up and thrown by their fleeces and animals being beaten. If the French National Assembly can make CCTV mandatory, then why can the UK Parliament not do the same?

‘We today call on George Eustice MP to recognise the vital need to implement this important tool and bring forward a change in the law.’
