HC Deb 08 April 1965 vol 710 c94W
49. Wing Commander Sir E. Bullus

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to ensure that shopkeepers who sell fireworks display a notice regarding safety measures in their use.

Mr. George Thomas

My right hon. and learned Friend has no power to compel shopkeepers to display such notices, but each box of fireworks sold has a leaflet or label describing the safety precautions to be observed, and the fireworks themselves carry appropriate warnings.
