We the undersigned petition the council to Refuse to allow real animal fur to be sold at council markets & council owned or leased property Ratify an official Animal Welfare Charter Introduce and enforce the official Fur Free Markets policy

HERE IS THE OFFICIAL FUR FREE MARKETS POLICY:
[This Council] recognises that the United Kingdom has banned the farming of animals for their fur on ethical grounds since 2000 and the use of one of the most common traps used to catch animals for their fur has also been banned for many years.

Recognising that real fur is cruel and unnecessary, this Local Authority prohibits the selling of products containing real animal fur on council owned land, council run markets or council leased markets (including seasonal and Christmas markets). All products wholly or partially made with real fur are covered by this ban and include for example; fur coats, vintage fur, fur shawls, garments with fur trim, fur pompom hats, and fur accessories and trinkets.

Further to this, the Council will not use real fur on robes and other items relating to Council official garments.
