Ban on sky lanterns

Dawn Bowden AM has written to Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council as follows:

 

I am aware of the consideration of ban on the use of sky lanterns by the Council.

 

Please rest assured that the County Borough Council would have my full backing for a ban at the earliest possible opportunity. I have been briefed by the RSPCA on this matter and find their advice compelling. https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwelfare/litter/chineselanterns;

 

I hope the County Borough Council will give this matter early consideration.
