Motion text

That this House welcomes the initiative announced by the Government to ban air bombs and to introduce a range of new measures to reduce the number of firework injuries; however is very disappointed that the ban is on a voluntary basis and does not come into effect until 1st January 2003; notes that every year in the weeks running up to the 5th November, and for weeks afterwards people, animals and emergency services all over the country have to endure the unnecessary terror and disruption of the indiscriminate, inappropriate and inconsiderate use of fireworks; calls on the Government urgently to rectify the inadequacy of the current fireworks voluntary code and to amend existing legislation so that it can be enforced effectively to ensure that the problems created by fireworks are eradicated.
