Senior Conservative parliamentarians are considering backing an MP’s attempt to reduce the levels of non-stunned animal slaughter in the UK and to introduce the mandatory labelling of kosher and halal meat.

The Tory MP Chris Loder is planning to lay an an amendment later this month to the new kept animals bill, which would be aimed at reducing the number of animals killed for meat without being stunned first.
