Shechita UK has welcomed comments made by the Prime Minister in a recent interview with the Jewish News.
When asked about securing the future of shechita, Mr Cameron said:
“We have no plans to outlaw in any way that practise. There’s no stronger supporter of shechita in the cabinet than me. The Jewish community has been an absolute exemplar in integrating into British life in every way but integration doesn’t mean that you have to give up things that you hold very dear in your religion and it seems to me the issue of shechita is a very good example of that. I fought as a back-bench MP at the last attempt by the Farm Animal Welfare Council to do something to change this and I will always stand up for it.”
