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:   Solihull MBC complies with the law when determining the items traders are allowed to sell when on Council land.  It is currently not illegal for these items to be sold so the sale of these goods would be permitted.

The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider but stated:

Solihull MBC would not object to receiving copies of any information with regard to policy documents and stallholder agreements.  However, these would be received without prejudice.

There has been no further contact from the Council since this information was sent 31/01/18

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 Councillor Alison Rolf, Cabinet Portfolio Holder – Environment and Housing, email: alison.rolf@solihull.gov.uk
