‘Using Halal meat is just insulting’

“I write expressing my concern at the report regarding Halal meat to be on the menu and served at Derby Schools (Evening Telegraph, October 10). England prides itself on the high quality of good meats used and served in our English schools. It is absolutely stomach-turning to even think of Halal meat, and to expect white, English Christian children to eat such unhygienic meat is an insult to our children and our schools.”
