On 29 January, the Government set out its approach to firework safety in a Westminster Hall Debate triggered by an E-Petition calling for changes to the laws governing the use of fireworks. There is no current plan to change the legislation.

The newly established Office for Product Safety and Standards will be responsible for collating information and data about the safety of consumer products, including fireworks. This will provide an evidence base and enable the Government to keep the issue under review.
