Consumer Rights Bill — Secondary Ticketing Platforms — Require Publication of Seller ID and Full Ticket Details — 12 Jan 2015 at 19:15

Julian Huppert MP, Cambridge voted against requiring ticket reselling websites to identify ticket sellers and carry full details of tickets including face value, seat numbers and more.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring ticket reselling websites to identify ticket sellers and carry full details of tickets including face value, seat numbers and more.

MPs were considering the Consumer Rights Bill[1][2]

The motion passed by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 12.

Lords amendment 12[3] sought to introduce a new clause to the bill titled 'Secondary ticketing platforms' subclause (1) of which stated:

  • Secondary ticketing operators must, on the website on which tickets are offered for sale or transfer, provide information concerning the sellers of tickets so that sellers may be easily identified.

The clause also required the publication of "all relevant information" relating to the ticket, including its face value and details of the seat (if any) the ticket relates to.
