The main thing to avoid is a situation where your heated living area causes condensation on the underside of your roofing.

Your slate roof is not of concern provided that it is properly installed. In all reality what is needed is a proper build out of the attic to allow for ventilation and prevent condensation. This would be the case regardless of what roofing material was used.
