Netherlands: Complaints about halal food in parliament cafeteria

The Party for Freedom (PVV) thinks that the parliament restaurant should not serve halal food.  The party is indignant that this happened this week and had sent a letter asking for explanation from the parliament administration.  
A vegetable dish with halal kebab were served during lunch Wednesday.  PVV parliament member Dion Grous thinks that's inappropriate, since the dish was gotten through a "very animal unfriendly and undignified slaughter method."  More than that he says it's sad to see that "the Islamization of our country has also reached the menu of the parliament."

A spokesperson of the parliament presidency did not want to go into the issue, but said the letter would be discussed by the presidency.
