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: Our Trading Standards service are not aware of an Animal Welfare Charter and we do not believe the market operator conditions prevents traders from selling fur.
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 emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
