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 do have stall holders who sell sheepskins and sheepskin slippers and vintage clothing which may from time to time include real 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 contacting Councillor David May, Chair of Licensing Committee, email: Cllr.May@southhams.gov.uk
