MPs to debate petition relating to the sale of fireworks

29 October 2020

On Monday 2 November, MPs will debate a petition relating to the sale of fireworks to the public.

The debate will be led by Petitions Committee member Tonia Antoniazzi MP. MPs from all parties can take part, and a Minister from the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy will respond on behalf of the Government.

This debate has been scheduled in response to a petition calling on the Government to Ban fireworks for general sale to the public.

The debate will last 90 minutes, and will take place in Westminster Hall – the House of Commons second Chamber. 


The previous Petitions Committee conducted an inquiry into fireworks, and produced a report which made a number of recommendations which the Government has not acted upon.

What are petitions debates?

Petitions debates are 'general' debates which allow MPs from all parties to discuss the important issues raised by one or more petitions, and put their concerns to Government Ministers.
