Should we light fireworks ... more often?
Saturday 04 November 1995
"It is agreed with the Government that we only have fireworks once a year. It's to keep the place in order. You can't have them banging off all year round. Other countries operate on the same basis. As an industry, we welcome it. Having fireworks widely available all year would make things too difficult to handle. Shops selling fireworks have to keep them separate from other things. Hamleys is the biggest seller of fireworks in the world and sells them throughout the year. They have to be so organised to manage it legally and they are very practiced with it. The fireworks are kept on the top floor and staff are trained in handling them."
