There are numerous markets run by or licensed by Durham County Council.
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: Subject to usual statutory legal constraints we allow the market operators to decide who can and cannot trade on the markets and what products may or may not be sold on the markets.
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 contacting Cllr Brian Stephens, Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhoods and Local Partnerships, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
