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:   traders at Council markets do not sell any goods containing real fur; however there is currently no Council policy in place to prohibit the sale of real fur at its markets.

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

Thank you for providing your recommended policy wording; however I must emphasise that Council cannot guarantee that this would be implemented or adopted as a new policy. 

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 Joe Nelson, Chair of Economic Development and Regeneration Committee, email: joe.nelson@armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk
