§ Mr. Chris Davies
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received following the revocation of the Fireworks (Safety) Regulations 1986. 
§ Mr. Jonathan Evans
My Department has received a number of inquiries about the implications of the revocation of the 1986 regulations. My officials have held discussions with representatives of the trading standards service and explained that the supply of fireworks to 753W children under 16 remains an offence both under section 31 of the Explosives Act 1875 (as amended) and under the General Product Safety Regulations 1994.
§ Mr. Davies
To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will reintroduce the Fireworks (Safety) Regulations 1986.
