Letter to Prime Minister - Sky Lanterns (Prohibition) Bill 2017-19

Dear Prime Minister,
Re: Sky Lanterns (Prohibition) Bill 2017-19
I am the owner of a UK registered trademark of sky lanterns Night Sky Lanterns®.
Further to the comments made by Ruth George, MP, when she called for a bill to make the use of sky lanterns an offence, a bill that was passed on 5th April 2019, I write to correct some of the mistaken attitudes shown towards sky lanterns in the bill.

Sky lanterns are not illegal or banned in UK, EU and USA

Sky lanterns are not illegal or banned in United Kingdom, Europe, and United States of America or in any other known countries. Anyone over 18 years of age and capable of handling a lighter can responsibly release sky lanterns. The confusion is caused by incomplete information spread by few propagandists who are lobbying a distorted opinion based on incorrect facts and misinterpreted news.
