To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what recent assessment he has made of the effect of fireworks on people with post traumatic stress disorder.
The Government is committed to promoting the safe and considerate use of fireworks.
On 20 October, we launched our public awareness campaign for the 2020 fireworks season. The focus of the campaign has been to educate people on how to buy, use, store and dispose of fireworks safely; ensure retailers know and understand their responsibilities when selling fireworks; and, promote the considerate use of fireworks, so that people, including those with PTSD, and animals can be better protected from any negative effects that may be caused by fireworks.
We worked with a wide range of stakeholders to share the messaging across differing audiences.
