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: There is nothing in the contract that restricts the sale of fur items
The Council allows the sale of fur and has refused to even consider or look at our Fur Free markets policy.
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 Unsworth (in relation to licensing), email: Cllr.firstname.lastname@example.org
