Scottish Parliament: Emergency Workers (7 Nov 2018)

Liam Kerr: ...use of stop and search. The review of the appalling attacks that took place against emergency crews on bonfire night last year identified a gap in police powers in respect of searching over-18s for fireworks. Unfortunately, again a number of serious incidents occurred this year, including youths firing fireworks directly at the police. The Scottish National Party must close the gap and...

Assessment and Treatment Units: Vulnerable People: Child Maintenance (6 Nov 2018)

Alison Thewliss: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Over the past few days, residents in my constituency, and particularly in Pollokshields, have been plagued by fireworks being set off and used as weapons. I understand that injury has been caused to a child, and that fireworks have been aimed at police officers, as well as members of the public. Have you been given any indication, perhaps by Ministers from the...

Firework Season (Protection of Emergency Workers) (6 Nov 2018)

Firework Season (Protection of Emergency Workers)

Business of the House (25 Oct 2018)

Douglas Ross: May we have a debate to celebrate the many local fireworks displays that will occur in the next two weeks? Tomorrow evening, the Portgordon fireworks display will put on a spectacular show for people who come from near and far. Will my right hon. Friend join me in congratulating Kenny Gunn and his team of volunteers? This year’s event is the 25th anniversary of the fantastic show that they...

Northern Ireland Budget (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (18 Jul 2018)

Baroness Harris of Richmond: ...themselves “loyalists”, could get away with building an enormous bonfire close to houses—80 pallets high, I was told—beggars belief. Then we have dissident republicans throwing dangerous fireworks at Gerry Adams’ home—what an outrageous act—when there were young children nearby. Once again, the Police Service of Northern Ireland has had to take the brunt of all this...

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Jul 2018) knives and that sort of thing and things that many law-abiding citizens would want. It is mainly a matter of convenience, but if it came in, retailers would clearly comply, as they do with fireworks, hopefully.

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Jul 2018)

...—do very well at that. Some of the challenges we have concern some of the smaller independent retailers—but not all of them. My view is that if a young person cannot walk into a shop and get fireworks, why should they be able to walk into a shop and pick up a knife? Look at the relative harm that is caused by knives and fireworks. I just think it is quite disproportionate that there...

Public Bill Committee: Offensive Weapons Bill: Examination of Witnesses (17 Jul 2018)

Trish Burls: We enforce a range of products already—alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, butane and knives, obviously—and trading standards advocates age check 25 or age check 21, a system whereby a retailer is encouraged and advised to check someone’s age if they look under 25 so as to give the retailers a big gap between 18 and 25, and to get them into the habit of asking for the appropriate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Jul 2018)

David Lidington: ...all organisers of summer events to exercise caution in this hot climate, to follow Home Office guidance on outdoor fire safety and to take steps to prevent the risk of fire from lanterns and fireworks, and to think about both the fire risk and the impact that debris from lanterns has too often had on farmers’ livestock.

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill - Second Reading (29 Jun 2018)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...played a material part in his decision to take his own life. That is truly tragic. I was also dismayed to learn of the attacks on firefighters. I have been told of an incident in Yorkshire where fireworks were thrown into the cab of a fire engine when it arrived to attend to a fire on bonfire night. Fireworks are explosives and you have to be a complete idiot to throw them at anyone. There...

Business of the House (14 Jun 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...of the Leader of the House and shadow Leader of the House about Grenfell Tower. Three and a half years ago, two constituents in Staffordshire lost their lives in a terrible fire and explosion in a fireworks factory in my constituency. Court proceedings have now concluded, so may we have a debate or statement about what the Government propose to do to ensure better regulation and inspection...

Scottish Parliament: Energy Drinks (Under-16s) (13 Jun 2018)

Mr Mark Ruskell: ...that a ban would be challenging to enforce, but it also acknowledges that the sector is already effective at enforcing age restrictions on a wide range of products, from tobacco to alcohol and fireworks to solvents. The jury is out on whether a voluntary approach will be effective going forward, but if it is not, a legal ban should be on the cards to get energy drinks out of our school...

BAME Communities: Stop and Search — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Rupa Huq: ...violence on the streets. The Specials’ “Ghost Town” was No. 1, and the streets of Brixton and Toxteth burned. At the same time, a royal wedding was being celebrated. I queued up to see the fireworks for Prince Charles and Lady Diana, I remember. A royal commission in 1981 found that there was an excessive use of stop-and-search, and in the end it was scrapped. That year’s riots...

Office for Product Safety and Standards — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (9 May 2018)

Holly Lynch: In the spirit of cross-party working, the Minister might remember that on 29 January he responded to a Westminster Hall debate on a petition calling for greater regulation on the sale of fireworks. In response to an inquiry from my hon. Friend the Member for Poplar and Limehouse (Jim Fitzpatrick), he said that, regarding the sale and regulation of fireworks, “this new body” would...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill: Extent, commencement and short title (27 Apr 2018)

Judith Cummins: ...night. There were mattresses, plastic sofas and other hazardous items all set on fire. Stood around the fire were about 20 young people. We were chatting to them, and then when someone threw a firework into the fire, I was promptly ordered back into the car. While we were walking away, we were fired at with rockets placed in plastic tubing. The officer I was with sustained burn injuries...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval: Anti-Semitism (17 Apr 2018)

Andrew Gwynne: ...reports that 88 incidents targeted Jewish schools, schoolchildren or staff, with 50% of those incidents taking place as Jewish schoolchildren made their journeys to or from school. In one incident, fireworks were thrown at visibly Jewish people in public in November; in another, Jewish schoolchildren were hit, kicked and punched on the bus home, but were ignored by the driver when they...

Equality of Voting Ages — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (28 Feb 2018)

Chloe Smith: ...consent. The UK has seen a general shift to a higher minimum age requirement on a number of things in recent years, with cross-party support. For example, in 1997 the minimum age for buying fireworks was raised from 16 to 18. In 2005, gambling at a casino was restricted to 18-year-olds and upwards. In 2007, the legal minimum age for buying tobacco in England, Scotland and Wales was raised...

UK Basketball — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (20 Feb 2018)

Luke Pollard: ...Olympic park and I was brimming with pride at seeing them play on such a big stage, but there is no place like home. We have Foxy the mascot, the best basketball cheerleaders in the country, indoor fireworks, music, competitions on court and a chance to see hero players—going to a basketball game is fantastic. I last saw Raiders play on 11 February when our friends from Glasgow gave my...
