Views sought on fireworks at Parliament event – London

The House of Commons Petitions Committee is hosting an event Tuesday 2nd July to gather people’s views on fireworks.

The Committee recently launched an inquiry into how the noise of fireworks affect people with a wide range of health conditions and disabilities including hearing loss.

Hundreds of people have signed petitions calling for a ban on fireworks and potentially limiting its use to only licensed venues.

The Committee has already carried out a survey on the subject, however it will now host an event at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 2nd July, from 7pm-8.30pm, to further understand peoples’ experiences of fireworks and to discuss potential solutions.

The event, held in the Macmillan Room, Portcullis House, London SW1A 0AA, is free to attend and you can book your place via Eventbrite.
