Write to your MP

Did you know you can easily write to your MP via this link: https://www.writetothem.com/

If you need some inspiration, feel free to browse our collection of MP Letter Templates

Don’t forget to include:

  • How fireworks affect you, your loved ones, your pets, your neighbours
  • Facts and figures on how often they occur
  • Specific questions, especially if this is not the first time you have contacted them
  • Ask them what they will be doing to address your concerns

Ideas for questions to ask:

  • The government believes that most people use fireworks at appropriate times
    • When do they consider is an appropriate time
    • What evidence do they have to prove their belief?
  • The government say it is a balance between those that like fireworks and those that don’t. They believe we are a minority
    • How have they come to that calculation? And how is 365 days a year a balance?
    • Have they asked the question “Do we want restrictions?” …………or have they again gone on ‘their belief’ with NO evidence?
    • How many people have to be suffering before we become more important (comparably) than back garden fireworks out of season? Do you have a figure in mind?
