Volume 465: debated on Thursday 25 October 2007

26. To ask the Solicitor-General how many prosecutions for criminal offences relating to fireworks have been pursued in (a) Northamptonshire and (b) England by the Crown Prosecution Service in the last 12 months. (160595)

It is not possible to provide a definitive response to this question from the records held by the CPS.

Information on prosecutions for offences against the person and for criminal damage is held at aggregate level, and it is not possible to identify separately any cases falling into these categories in which the offence involved a firework.

Offences under the Fireworks Regulations 2004 are within the scope of the Penalty Notice for Disorder Scheme, and are not prosecuted by the CPS unless the penalty notice is challenged.
