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 don’t have a policy, or a form of words within the licenses or leases for those traders within the Newport Indoor Market. We would be happy to be sent a form of words for inclusion in future agreements.
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 Councillor Mark Whitcutt, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Assets, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
