You could use parts of this to send to your MP.. It is always better to personalise emails and ask one or two direct questions that require an answer, not more, if you rant they can just ignore it as it asks for nothing.
FAB Firework Abatement Campaign have been campaigning for over 2 yrs to ask the UK government to restrict the use of fireworks for the benefit of people and animals.
A recent petition backed by FAB achieved over 100,000 signatures in ONE MONTH, proving with certainty that many people are just about fed up with random fireworks. We all accept the traditional dates of 5th November and 31st December along with Diwali and Chinese New Year, it is the random use throughout the year and the prolific use during ‘FIREWORK SEASON’, as it has become, that is an issue for many people.
This petition was unfairly denied a debate. Click here for letter that can be sent to your MP to complain of this unfairness and maybe achieve a change of heart from the Petitions Committee. (it is the PC that decide which petitions are debated, regardless of how many signatures they achieve).
Please amend and add your feelings to this letter to your MP..It is very easy to send an email … although a letter is better….Find your MPs postal address here, search by postcode or their name. Info on the letter campaign can be found here.
The petition in question still has over 3 months to run….please continue to share and sign.
SIGN HERE please to help FAB stop random fireworks. Read our HOME PAGE to see what we are about…
Please report every incidence of fireworks you hear on our FIREWORK LOG. We are collecting data to prove to the government that random fireworks do occur……They insist fireworks are mostly limited to traditional dates already. We know that is not the case.
Please WRITE TO YOUR MP and let them know how you feel.. If you don’t tell them they will continue to deny the problem.
FAB are asking the government to restrict public USE of fireworks to traditional dates. That works out about 10 days a year. So you can still have them in your gardens around Guy Fawkes and New Year, Diwali and Chinese New Year.. There will still be displays and fireworks competitions as there are now, just no random unexpected fireworks to frighten people and animals.
