Here is the Council’s response to our FoI 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: In terms of those markets managed by City Centre Management the permitted uses granted relates to general product lines rather than anything specific such as those items referred to above.
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 Robert Francis-Davies – Cabinet Member for Development and Regeneration, email: Cllr.Robert.Davies@swansea.gov.uk
