The Scottish Parliament passed its Fireworks and Pyrotechnic Articles (Scotland) Act 2022 in June 2022 and it received Royal Assent in August 2022. Fireworks policy covers both devolved and reserved areas of competence. My department and the Home Office regularly engage with the Scottish Government on matters relating to public safety.
