The Government of the UK has launched a formal ‘call for evidence’, asking the fashion industry and general public to give evidence on the fur trade, to help inform the government policy in the UK.

DEFRA, the department for environment, food, and rural affairs is convincing the public, businesses, and fashion industry to share their views towards the fur trade, as the government considers banning the import and sale of animal fur.

This ‘call for evidence’ has been launched together alongside with Scottish and Welsh governments. The ‘call for evidence’ concerns the commercial trade in fur.
