SIR - I am shocked that the public have been deliberately kept in the dark over the issue of halal meat. Stunning before slaughter is the method approved by Mike Foster's Labour government and also the RSPCA, so why is this not carried out for meat supplied to Worcester schools? In a true democracy the opinion of the majority should be paramount over those of the minority no matter strongly their views are held. Perhaps the saying of Miguel de Cervantes should be heeded: "When thou art at Rome, do as they do at Rome."
