That this House notes that the Knesset is currently considering a bill to ban the commercial fur trade; further notes that there would be an exclusion in this ban for fur used for religious purposes; further notes that a recent poll in Israel showed that 79 per cent. of people in that country support the ban; further notes that, while fur factory farming and the use of steel-jawed leghold traps are banned in the UK, furs produced using these cruel methods are still on sale here; and calls on the Government to take note of this proposed legislation and to bring in a ban on the fur trade in the UK as soon as possible.
