Summary: 

The NSS said non-stunned meat is reaching at least 140 schools, the significant majority of which are not Islamic faith schools. It said too many councils had bowed to a hardline interpretation of Islam, adding that the government should repeal the religious exemption to the UK's animal welfare laws.
