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: No prohibition at annual fair. No prohibition in the licensing conditions for licenced markets, unaware of their management policy.
The Council allows the sale of fur.
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 contactingCllr Richard Dew, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
