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.
However, we are unaware of any official policy documents or guidelines to enforce this- although we understand the Council is in the process of drafting an Animal Welfare Charter.
Please urge the Council to adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting the Performance Management Officer,
Department of Markets and Consumer Protection, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
