Here is the 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: We do not hold this information under s1(1) Freedom of Information Act 2000. We do not go into the level of detail as to what stalls are selling (other than general descriptions such as food, drink, gifts, clothing, plants etc
The Council (unlike almost every other in the country) is apparently not able to provide this basic information, suggesting that the sale of fur would be allowed.
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 Cllr Heather Bradley, Portfolio for Economy, Enterprise and Housing, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
