Statement by the British Fireworks Association
The British Fireworks Association is disappointed with the inquiry outcome – despite having worked with the inquiry for almost a year.
It has two major concerns.
1) After days of taking and verifying evidence for almost a year from a very broad range of contributors, it has not come up with anything new.
2) It has missed a golden opportunity to address concerns around safety, illegal imports and anti-social behaviour.
For these reasons, the BFA has produced its own minority report which goes much further than the recommendations of the Inquiry.
The BFA wishes to make Bonfire night safer.
