Ban on fur to be debated in parliament today

A parliamentary debate on whether the UK should ban the sale of animal fur will take place in Westminster Hall on 4 June.

The Petitions Committee has scheduled a debate on the petition to ban real fur in the UK, which has collected 109,000 signatures.

Fur farming was banned in the UK in 2000, however, the UK still imports foreign farmed fur, including fox, rabbit, mink, racoon and chinchilla.

In recent months, brands including Gucci, Versace, and Jimmy Choo have all pledged not to use real animal fur in their collections.
