The Scottish Government intends to consult with our stakeholders on the implementation of the EU Regulation 1099/2009, which introduces new controls on the protection of animals at slaughter. The issue of slaughter without pre-stunning is one of the areas on which views will be sought. In addition, we will also take the opportunity to consult on the related issue of the labelling of meat produced from animals slaughtered without pre-stunning.
