A:   We do not have a policy that specifically states the sale of real fur, we do however have a policy that states :

“The Council will not permit the sale of any illegal, dangerous, or inappropriate products. The following, non-exhaustive, list of products, or product groups, is prohibited from sale at Newtown Charter Market;

 Guns, Replica Guns, Ornamental Swords and Knives (Except Kitchen Knives & Cutlery), Laser pens, Live Animals, Fireworks, Counterfeit Goods, Illegally Copied Videos, CD’s, DVD’s, MP3 disks & Computer Games, Drugs, Drug Related Products or Items Promoting the Taking of Drugs (inc.

We sought clarification from the council if this would mean they would prevent the sale of real fur and they stated:

This would be a political decision that the Economy and Environment Committee  would have to consider on a case by case basis.
