I humbly submit the petition of Tina Griffiths and more than 20,000 of the people of Ogmore in South Wales, who declare that the current controls on fireworks are in need of improvement.

The petition states:

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urgently reviews fireworks legislation, and in particular to require all public firework displays to be controlled by licensed pyrotechnicians, to restrict the times of year fireworks can be bought, to restrict the times of day fireworks can be set off, and to license all vendors of fireworks to meet strict safety criteria and to give trading standards the power to revoke the licence of any vendor caught selling fireworks to underage children.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
