Non-decision announced on Queen’s Birthday Fireworks – decision coming

By johnboy - 15 January 2009 41

John Hargreaves has announced that he’s taking the fireworks issue to cabinet for a decision on their continued consumer use at the Queen’s Birthday Weekend post 2010.

    “The general public will be permitted to purchase and use consumer fireworks over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June this year,” Mr Hargreaves said.

    “The fireworks industry is required to order stock well ahead of the long weekend and if fireworks are ever to be banned the Government must give sufficient notice.

    “I will be putting a paper to my Cabinet colleagues in the coming months to make a decision once and for all about the future of consumer fireworks in the Territory.

UPDATED: The RSPCA has expressed despair and frustration at the Government’s continued refusal to give in to their demands.

Tell Hargreaves you’re pretty sure young people like them and they’ll be gone by 2010. Tell him people sometimes like to enjoy a bottle of red while watching them and they’ll be gone this year, lest there be less vino for him.

Well he’s certainly not going to ban wine! And he’s got to ban something, be reasonable.
