Tickets: Touting

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what discussions she has had with industry on the illegal selling of tickets to events. (130516)

The Department has hosted four separate meetings with key stakeholders from the ticketed events’ industry over the last year to discuss the problems associated with ticket resale, to identify solutions to those problems and work continues. Only the resale of tickets for designated football matches, the resale of tickets for the London 2012 Games and the trading of tickets on the street without a licence are illegal.

Illegal activity is a matter for enforcement agencies to take appropriate action.
