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: Our Terms and Conditions for Stall Holders (currently under review) does not specify if fur can or cannot be sold. We do not host stall holders who sell items of clothing.
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 Cllr Kevin Jenkins, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, email: email@example.com or Fiona Burn, Place and Economy Manager, email: – firstname.lastname@example.org
