Rejected petition Restict Fireworks to 5th November at specialised organised events.

Fireworks only on 5th November unless licensed for special occasions. Also many childrens get burnt. Animals get scared both wildlife and domesticated as well as the elderly. Police should monitor and take action. 35% more dogs go missing on bonfire night than any other night of the year.

This petition was rejected

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.

We're not sure whether you would like fireworks to be legal only at organised events on 5 November, or whether you would like them to be legal on 5 November and on other days of the year with a license.

If you could make your request clearer, we could look at your petition again.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards.
