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: There are no legal requirements for the council to adopt a policy on this issue and the Council does not have a policy on the sale of real fur at its market.
