Parliament goes kosher

MORE than three years after a similar push was denied, kosher and halal food is available regularly at the House of Commons.

The launch on Tuesday follows a push that two Labour MPs Charlotte Nichols, who is Jewish, and Zarah Sultana, who is Muslim began in 2019.

The move was approved in 2020, but implementation was delayed due to the pandemic.

The kosher meal provider is 1070 Kitchen.

The dishes on offer on Tuesday included chicken schnitzel, beef goulash, Moroccan salmon and roast chicken.
