January 30, 2018 from The JC and The JC:

An employee "inquired about the possibility of kosher food being provided in Parliament’s nine restaurants and canteens, but was told menus were governed by guidelines written by groups including the RSPCA and the British Veterinary Association – a long-standing critic of non-stun slaughter."

"Parliament’s on-site catering options include a range of restaurants, snack bars, coffee shops and vending machines and can be used by MPs, peers, their staff and more than 10,000 parliamentary pass-holders."

"Asked whether pre-made kosher food, such as sandwiches which are readily available in supermarkets, could be sold on the parliamentary estate, the spokesperson said: 'Following careful consideration, the provision of kosher products when weighed against demand, is not viable in terms of costs, logistics and supplier management.'"

The European Parliament provide kosher meals.
