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 do not have licence conditions that prohibits the sale of real fur.
Commodities are itemised such as ladies wear, men’s wear, childrens wear etc. If traders are offering for sale items such as fur bobble hats, fur key rings etc, it would not be closely monitored if the fur was synthetic or real.

The Council allows the sale of fur.

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 Joshua Peck, Cabinet Member for Work and Economic Growth, email:
