Agenda Item 38(b)



Brighton & Hove City Council





A period of not more than fifteen minutes shall be allowed at each ordinary meeting for questions submitted by a member of the public.


The question will be answered without discussion. The person who asked the question may ask one relevant supplementary question, which shall be put and answered without discussion. The person to whom a question, or supplementary question, has been put may decline to answer it. 


The following written questions have been received from members of the public.




(1)          Provision of Vegan Food at Schools


We are in the middle of a climate crisis, where at least 60% of the worlds carbon emissions come from animal farming (including egg and dairy farming). Today’s children need to move towards a more plant based diet to have a future on this planet, and we need to be encouraging them to do so. Therefore, I am asking the committee to ensure veganism is no longer side-lined as a ‘special diet’ in schools and that a vegan choice is available every lunchtime to all children in all schools, to enable them to make more responsible food choices.
