The following information has been received today with regard to Halal meals:
"The Council's catering service has been successfully serving Halal meat for 15 years to several local schools. Our suppliers have provided us with certificates to show that the meat complies with requirements to be designated as Halal. Following concerns raised by the Luton Council of Mosques and the Sunni Council of Mosques Luton, and in consultation with them, we have agreed to suspend Halal meat and poultry from the school meals menu from today (25 April) as a precautionary measure. We will be working together with the Luton Council of Mosques and the Sunni Council of Mosques Luton to review the supply process. In the meantime we will be continuing to serve vegetarian options."
