Shechita UK’s position on CCTV

May 19, 2017

Following the Conservative Party’s inclusion of mandatory CCTV across all abattoirs in their General Election manifesto, Shechita UK has issued the following statement:

Shechita UK has always supported the call for CCTV in abattoirs and has repeatedly spoken to government on the issue. As long as CCTV is across all abattoirs we believe it will dispel many of the myths regarding religious slaughter and be used as a tool to prevent major animal welfare abuses. We also believe it will continue to show the harm many mechanical stunning methods cause animals.
