82The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has promised that halal slaughter will be protected in Britain as long as he remains in power. He said in a speech that his government would never put restrictions on religious slaughter despite protests from animal rights groups who complain that halal and kosher slaughter is cruel because the animal is killed by cutting its throat while it is fully conscious. But proponents of the method say it means animals are killed by a trained professional, rather than a machine, and lose consciousness within seconds after an artery in the throat is severed.

In the same speech Mr Cameron also promised that the government would “keep on challenging the intolerant view of Muslims that exists in some part of our country.”
