holding answer 19 May 2004

The supply of category 4 fireworks to the general public was banned in 1997 with the coming into force of the Fireworks (Safety) Regulations. Only fireworks professionals may purchase this type of firework.

Additionally, under these Regulations only fireworks that comply with the British StandardBS 7114—are to be supplied to ordinary consumers.
