Here is Brentwood Borough Council’s response to our FoI 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: No Policy
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 an official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Cllr Olivia Sanders – Chair of Licensing Committee firstname.lastname@example.org
