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? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.
A: We have nothing listed to stop them
The Council allows the sale of fur and have refused to even consider or look at the Fur Free Markets policy.
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 Councillor John Glencairn Cunningham; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
