HC Deb 18 June 1997 vol 296 c189W
Mr. Burden

To ask the President of the Board of Trade when she intends to publish the revised draft firework safety regulations. [4831]

Mr. Nigel Griffiths

I propose to publish my proposals for new firework safety regulations tomorrow. Copies of the consultation document will be sent to a wide range of organisations with an interest in firework safety, including consumer groups, enforcement authorities, industry, firework user groups and other groups who use fireworks during religious and cultural festivals. Copies of both the consultation document and the draft regulations are being placed in the Library of the House.
