The House of Commons Petitions Committee is currently looking at the use of fireworks following a number of petitions about fireworks over the last three years.  A recent petition signed by nearly 300,000 people calls for a ban on the sale of fireworks to the public, and for fireworks displays to be restricted to licenced venues.

If you have a respiratory condition and have been impacted by fireworks, then you might be interested in attending the Petitions Committee on Fireworks on Tuesday, 2nd July 2019 at 7pm at Westminster.

At this event, you will be asked how fireworks affects your respiratory condition.  The Committee is keen to hear about people’s experiences and thoughts on potential solutions to addressing health concerns around the use of fireworks. Your views will help shape the Committee’s thinking on this topic.
