House of Lords
Baroness Wilcox (Conservative)
The EU has introduced bans on the sale of cat, dog and seal fur and we currently have no plans to seek an extension of these to include other species.
The sale of fur and other by-products from endangered species is already strictly controlled and, in the case of the most endangered species, prohibited, under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) to ensure that trade is carried out sustainably.
Fur farming has been banned in the UK since 2000.
