Public consultation on banning fireworks in Scotland - Submit your opinion by 13 May 2019
Your experiences, your ideas, your views, at the beginning of February. In addition to the online consultation, 29 events were held across Scotland and a range of social media platforms were used to seek people's views.
We sought your views on:
- the sale of fireworks to the general public.
- how people use and enjoy fireworks.
- the impact of fireworks on people, communities and animals.
- ideas on what actions could be taken to ensure fireworks continue to be enjoyed safely and responsibly.
The consultation closed on 13 May, having received a total of 16,420 responses. Over 7,000 responses were received in the first 24 hours of the consultation launch.
The results of the consultation demonstrate strong support for a change in how fireworks are sold.
