To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) if he will finance or organise a national training scheme for the organisers of firework displays;(2) if he will introduce legislation to require the manufacturers of fireworks to sponsor a national training scheme for the organisers of firework displays.

No. The fireworks industry already helps train organisers of major displays when requested. I am not convinced that a national training scheme is needed. Organisers should follow the instructions on the fireworks and heed the advice in the leaflet for display organisers issued by my Department.
