The Council operates markets in West Bromwich, Wednesbury, Oldbury, Great Bridge.

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:   There is no restriction on the sale of fur as long as it is legal to do so. However in reality it is most unlikely furs would be sold on our markets and has not happened in my memory.

The Council allows the sale of fur. Real fur is often sold cheaply as bobbles/ poms or trims and wrongly assumed to be fake, and it is of concern that the Council appear complacent about this. Please let us know if you suspect real fur being sold.

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 Dave Hosell, Cabinet Member responsible for markets, email: david_hosell@sandwell.gov.uk
