Gift Cards & Ticket Scalping

Monday 23 October 2017

In Parliament I supported the government’s new anti-scalping laws. Resale websites use software to buy tickets to events in bulk and then resell them at massively inflated prices. They pay search engines to advertise so they come up at the top of searches. New laws ban the software and put a cap on the profit when tickets are resold and are a positive move to prevent consumers being ripped off. My speech is HERE.
