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 exert commodity restrictions on our stall holders but subject to the products being lawful and within their prescribed commodity line, we would not proactively prohibit them being stocked.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
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 Daniel Jellyman, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, email: email@example.com
