Here is the Council’s response to our Freedom of Information request:
Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur?
A: We do not currently have a policy on this matter and applications are considered on an individual basis.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Brigid Jones, Deputy Leader of the Council, email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
