Consumer Protection: Resale of Tickets

Volume 611: debated on Thursday 26 May 2016

Together with my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, I am today laying before Parliament an independent report by Professor Michael Waterson, on the outcome of his “review of consumer protection measures concerning online secondary ticketing facilities”.

The report is required by Section 94 of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. The report is available at: www.gov.uk website and is available in the Libraries of both Houses.

The Government will carefully consider the report’s recommendations and will be providing a response in due course.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Professor Waterson for his time and diligence in carrying out this review into an important topic for consumers.
