Lifesaving recommendations to make the fireworks’ industry safer will start being implemented at the end of next month – nearly a year and a half after they were drafted, a spokes-man for the Home Affairs Ministry said yesterday. I can’t see why it should have taken so long. The man who headed an inquest that followed several fireworks-related deaths in 2010 has welcomed the move. “I’m happy to hear that they will be implemented,” said chemist Alfred Vella. “I can’t see why it should have taken so long.” The inquiry into the fireworks industry had led to the drafting of recommendations that were published in December 2011. But the report ended up gathering dust.
