HC Deb 06 July 1992 vol 211 c33W
Mr. Betts

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which prisons currently offer the alternative of halal meat(a) with every meal, (b) with more than half the meals, (c) with less than half the meals or (d) not at all.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The prison dietary scale provides for halal meat for inmates who register as Muslims, and ask to have halal meat.

The number of meals at which halal meat is offered varies from prison to prison and from day to day to take account of the changing inmate population. Detailed statistics are not maintained.
