Use and Sale of Fireworks in Scotland, and tackling the misuse of pyrotechnics
The Scottish Government has launched a public consultation to seek views from the public and stakeholders on the introduction of four specific requirements in relation to the sale and use of fireworks in Scotland.
The consultation also considers the use of pyrotechnic devices and specifically whether it should be an offence to carry a pyrotechnic device in a public place without reasonable excuse or lawful authority, and whether police powers should be extended to allow a stop and search provision for anyone reasonably suspected of committing the offence.
The consultation will close on Sunday 15 August 2021.
