CHINESE SKY LANTERNS
EDM #266
Tabled 16 July 2014
2014-15 Session
That this House expresses concern regarding the use of sky lanterns, also known as Chinese lanterns and their impact on livestock, crops and the environment; notes that Cleveland Fire Brigade recognises that the lanterns pose a serious fire safety hazard due to their uncontrolled and unpredictable flight paths; further notes the existence of a ban on their use in Spain as a result of damage to property and death or injury to livestock caused by discarded lanterns and increases pressure on the fire service, police and medical emergency services; and urges the Government to act swiftly.
