Halal meat row: Ministers will consider labelling if there is 'widespread demand'
Compulsory labelling of halal meat could be supported by the government if it is enforced by the European Union, a minister has said.
Jenny Willott, a Liberal Democrat minister, said the government will consider introducing a ban if a European study finds that there is "widespread demand" from customers.
Her comments came after Philip Davies, a Conservative MP, tabled an amendment in the Commons for compulsory labelling of meat. His amendment was defeated by 281 votes to 17.
