Restrictions On The Sale And Use Of Fireworks

EDM number 1772 in 2017-19, proposed by Roger Godsiff on 29/10/2018.

That this House is mindful of the approach of Bonfire Night on 5 November; calls on the Government to reconsider the current legislation regarding the sale and use of fireworks; expresses concern about distress caused to elderly people, small children and pets by fireworks being set off in residential areas, along with the potential for fireworks to cause injury to people using them or mis-using them; and urges the Government to amend the regulations to ensure that fireworks can only be sold by licenced traders, as defined by the Fireworks Regulations 2004, to licenced organisers of public displays.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
