Halal-row MPs in labelling call
MPs have called for clearer food labelling after the East Yorkshire representative discovered that halal meat was sold in the House of Commons' canteens without them knowing.
The Commons catering service is currently looking for new food suppliers who can tell them how the meat they sell is killed after admitting it had "unknowingly received" poultry slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law.
MPs and staff who eat at the Commons' canteens and restaurants were "not made aware" of how the animals were killed, Sir Stuart Bell, representing the House of Commons Commission, added.
