Lord Hardy of Wath

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action they are taking to reduce the risk or the nuisance arising from the use of fireworks; and what advice they have received about this matter from the police, health organisations and local authorities. [HL1032]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Lord Sainsbury of Turville)

We have launched a campaign to highlight to consumers the dangers of fireworks and to provide information on how to reduce the risk and nuisance from their use. We have regular contacts with representatives of the police, health organisations and local authorities on this issue.
