I have pleasure in presenting petitions signed by more than 550 people on behalf of my constituents, Derek Blackford, Stephen Jones and Lillian Hadley.

The petition states:
We declare that the year-round sale of fireworks is detrimental to the well-being of those who find their use upsetting, such as the elderly, wildlife and pets. The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons introduce legislation to restrict the sale of fireworks to the general public to the week before the 5th November.
The Petitioners remain, etc.
To lie upon the Table.
