蘇格蘭對銷售和使用煙花的新限制

新的法律只允許公眾在一年中的某些時候購買和使用煙花,包括蓋-福克斯日、霍格曼日、中國新年和排燈節。

議會將能夠建立煙花控制區,在那裡,無論是公眾還是專業人士,除了 "必要目的 "的展示外,使用煙花都是違法行為。

"如果沒有這項法案提供的保護,許多人和動物將繼續受到使用和故意濫用煙花和煙火劑的嚴重影響。

格林先生說,雖然對煙花銷售的限制在理論上聽起來很好,但他擔心囤積和 "白色貨車司機的情況 "只會使事情變得更糟。

他說,這將造成一種 "奇怪的情況",即人們被禁止在自己的花園裡燃放煙花,除非他們有能力雇用一家公司來做。

她說。"該法案在議會中被匆匆通過的程度意味着我們沒有機會適當地審查這個問題。"


The new law will only allow fireworks to be bought and used by members of the public at certain times of the year, including Guy Fawkes Day, Hogmanay, Chinese New Year and Diwali.

And councils will be able to establish firework control zones where it will be an offence for them to be used, by either the public or professionals, other than in a display "of essential purposes".

"Without the protection this bill provides many people and animals will continue to be deeply affected by the use and deliberate misuse of fireworks and pyrotechnics.

Mr Greene said while restrictions around the sale of fireworks sound great in theory he was concerned stockpiling and the "white van man scenario" would only make things worse.

And he said it would create the "bizarre situation" where people were barred from setting off fireworks in their own garden unless they could afford to hire a company to do it.

She said: "The extent to which the bill was rushed through parliament means we did not get a chance to examine this properly."
