We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Require a licence to buy or release any fireworks

I suggest the purchase and release of fireworks should be banned unless one possesses a valid license that has been granted following sufficient checks, a thorough application process and strict guidelines.

More details

The use of fireworks in a densely populated area creates immense disturbance, can cause or heighten anxiety and pose a threat to civilians. I have a dog who experiences a state of shock and panic when fireworks are let off and this is the case for many others. I live on a high road in London where there is a lot of traffic and a lot of residents. Fireworks are set off very often, especially come Autumn time. I don’t believe they should be able to be bought or used without a licence.
