HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 c88W
84. Mr. Elwyn Jones

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what limits he imposes as to the explosive contents of fireworks sold to the public.

Mr. R. A. Butler

There is no statutory limit, but in the case of bangers the manufacturers, under an agreement with my Department, voluntarily limit the amount of explosive. The information in my possession does not indicate that any firework now sold to the public is unsafe if used according to the directions and with suitable precautions.
