    Erm, they've stopped charging at least a year ago.

    Ah that's good to hear - I must've missed that update in my Railway Bogs magazine.

    No, they said employees can't claim expenses for meals which contain meat.

    Same general principle: if you do your bit to improve the status of the environment, we will reward you.
    Or is it more convenient for you to consider the 2 cases differently?

    If, as you say, judges would have a more sensible approach, the 2 examples should be treated equally. Thankfully the law is in the hands of smarter people than you, though.

    That's not what they're doing though. They're saying if you eat something they don't want you to eat, you will be penalised. It's not really about the environment because how do they know that their employees aren't doing everything else possible to improve the environment, but just choose to eat meat?

    But the two examples are NOT equal and would be judged nothing alike whatsoever. A company doesn't have to provide anything whatsoever on a day to day basis - the cafe is a nice little perk and you get what you get. So long as they meet their legal obligations and provide hot water and such, too.

    But there is a duty of care and further obligations to employees on business trips. Let's turn it around, because it's absolutely identical legally, would you support a ban on veggie dishes? Would you support a policy that says you can only claim back Big Macs from McDonalds?

    You're letting your silliness cloud your judgement, because you so want to be pure.

    And some veggie substitutes such as almond milk are also absolutely awful for the environment. I guess that's somewhat inconvenient, though.
