Inverclyde Council has the following markets: Local Gala Days , Annual Bonfire & Fireworks Display & Christmas Light Switch on events all with trading stalls forming part of the event.
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: We have never had stall holders selling fur.
However the council has failed to respond to our requests for how they know this and if they would allow it in future.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
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 Gerry Dorrian, Chair of General Purposes Board, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
