Too spicy

6th December 1996 at 00:00
The article (TESS, November 1) on "Halal menu adds pinch of spice to city finances" has a grave error of sheer ignorance. What on earth are the "non-ethnic" schools to which it refers in Glasgow? We have been trying very hard in Glasgow to curb the misconception that "black and ethnic" are synonymous.
