Paul's comments on the enforced provision of animal products in public institutions in France
"The French Government’s recent decree effectively enforcing
the consumption of animal products in public institutions is a
backward step for France. It goes against the Charter of Fundamental
Rights of the
European Union by prohibiting individuals’ right
to express their beliefs.
No one needs to eat animals – and we can combat climate change and
lessen the risk of suffering from heart disease and other ailments by
reducing the amount of meat we eat."
