Henry Grunwald QC, Chairman of Shechita UK

Jul 1, 2011

Henry Grunwald QC, chairman of Shechita UK said: “It is a sad day for religious freedom in Europe when legislation is passed based on flawed, unsubstantiated science, merely to appease an ill-informed animal welfare lobby. The suggestion that Shechita is anything but a humane method of slaughtering animals for food is offensive and unsound. We will continue to offer our support to the Jewish community of the Netherlands in the hope that common sense will prevail as this Bill moves closer to becoming law. Make no mistake the work of Shechita UK becomes more urgent and vital by the day”
