*This may be in (but not limited to) communal dining rooms, within halls of residence, restaurants, cafes, shops, student union facilities or any other food outlet within your campus.

2. Do you serve ONLY religiously slaughtered meat or are alternatives provided on the day for those that wish to abstain?

3. Are the Parents of your students made aware that you are serving religiously slaughtered meat?

4. Are your Students made aware that you are serving religiously slaughtered meat?

5. Is any meat that you serve (regardless of form) that has been religiously slaughtered clearly marked as such (halal, kosher and so forth) at the point of sale or service?

Dear Freedom Of Information,

Thank you for your email that I received today.

In your email you said that I could find your response to my FOI request below but your email did not contain any information.

I am sure this is an oversight or maybe a fault with the email system but I wonder if you could kindly resend your response.

Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Kenny Green
