HARLOW MP, Robert Halfon has called for a temporary ban on bouncy castles after a girl was killed in an incident on a beach in Norfolk.
The girl was thrown from the inflatable at Gorleston beach in Norfolk on Sunday morning.
Paramedics took her to hospital, but she died of her injuries.
The tragedy has echoes of the death of Summer Grant in Harlow back in March 2016.
Mr Halfon has submitted an urgent question to the Speaker in the House of Commons which may be asked on Monday morning.
Mr Halfon said: “This is an awful tragedy. My heart goes out to the family of the little girl.
I have submitted an urgent question as there needs to be a serious review into regulations around bouncy castles”.
Something is definitely very wrong in the departments dealing with the issue of licenses for the 'bouncy castles'. If anybody can set one up without consultation with Health and Safety, something is seriously out of line. Who grants the permits in the first place ?
