Non-stun slaughter must end on animal welfare grounds
Dr Joyce D'Silva of Compassion in World Farming says the organisation campaigns for an end to religious exemptions that allow non-stun slaughter so farm animals are treated as humanely as possible.
Farm animals may suffer much during their lives, especially if they are bred for high productivity and kept in factory farms. Their final transport to the abattoir and subsequent slaughter is only a small proportion of their lives.
But as they are sentient beings capable of suffering, we should not only rear farm animals to the highest standards of welfare, but also ensure the least possible pain and fear at the time of slaughter.
There are core animal welfare principles regarding slaughter. The animals should be stunned (i.e. rendered unconscious) before their throats are cut so they do not suffer any pain or terror during the cut and whilst bleeding out. Stunning should produce immediate unconsciousness, lasting until the animal has bled to death.
There are various stunning methods for different animals. Cattle are usually stunned by captive bolt – a retractable metal bolt is fired into the brain and the animal is stunned and drops down unconscious. Sheep and pigs are often stunned by electrical tongs applied to the head. Chickens may be stunned by gas, or by being plunged into an electrified water bath.
There are many scientific studies demonstrating that animals survive for a considerable period of time after their throats are cut. This is why the law generally requires that we stun animals, to spare them this agony.
The European Union slaughter regulation of 2009 (a council regulation) says animals must be stunned before slaughter. However, it allows countries to make a derogation regarding animals being slaughtered for religious communities. This means that Muslims and Jews can slaughter animals without stunning for halal and kosher meat.
Although a number of EU countries do not permit non-stun slaughter under any circumstances, the UK does make exemptions for halal and kosher slaughter in its animal welfare legislation.
In its 2004 report on animal welfare in slaughter, the European Food Safety Authority stated there is "a high risk that animals feel extreme pain during the cutting of the throat". They found that without stunning, it takes up to 20 seconds for sheep to fall unconscious after their throats have been cut. It takes up to two minutes in cattle, and more than two minutes in poultry.
The suffering caused by non-stun slaughter has prompted many expert welfare bodies to call for all animals to be stunned, without exception. This includes the UK government's Farm Animal Welfare Council, which has said that throat cutting of an un-stunned animal "would result in very significant pain and distress in the period before insensibility supervenes".
In the UK, approximately 2.6m cattle, 14.5m sheep and lambs and 950m chickens and other poultry are slaughtered every year. About a quarter of the sheep and around nine per cent of the chickens are slaughtered for halal meat. Some of these animals are stunned, but not all correctly stunned. An additional 1.2m animals are slaughtered for kosher meat. None of these animals are stunned at all.
There is no absolute consensus in religious communities regarding stunning before slaughter. Both Islam and Judaism have teachings that stress animals should be respected.
Compassion in World Farming's view is that animals should be slaughtered by the most humane method available. For this reason, we oppose all slaughter without pre-stunning as well as poorly executed stunning.

UK to end freedom of movement for EU citizens on day one of Brexit, under new government plan
Free movement for EU citizens will end on day one of a no-deal Brexit, under new Home Office plans – despite warnings of chaos and of people trapped in legal limbo.
Priti Patel, the new hardline home secretary, is pressing for border restrictions to be imposed immediately on 31 October, even though no replacement system is ready, The Independent has been told.

Previously, ministers had intended to delay scrapping free movement until new rules are in place, with a Bill stuck in the Commons and fierce rows over what those rules should be.
The Liberal Democrats condemned the acceleration as “brutal”, warning it exposed Ms Patel as being “completely detached from reality”.
And the organisation representing more than 3 million EU citizens in the UK said: “This will open the door to discrimination. There are no systems in place.”

The dramatic shift comes despite the government declining to bring forward the stalled Bill which would end free movement under a slower timetable, for fear of a Commons ambush.
Instead, Ms Patel believes she can act through secondary legislation, in a way that would bypass MPs of all parties who would oppose it.

Totally disgusting.

Comment by Stephen on Sunday

Raising the pension age is diabolical. Those of us who will receive the state pension has paid for it throughout their working lives. Why give the state pension to millionaires and billionaires, it goes straight into their bank accounts and they don't even notice it. One wonders why we should pay the state pension to those who haven't paid a penny towards it.
