Mike Thornton MP, Eastleigh voted against the production of guidance for those reselling tickets for events on the subject of complying with the applicable law.
The majority of MPs voted against the production of guidance for those reselling tickets for events on the subject of complying with the applicable law. The target of the guidance would have been for example those reselling tickets for events such as concerts and sporting fixtures.
- The Secretary of State shall issue guidance to all traders who operate as secondary ticketing platforms on the application of the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013.
The rejected clause goes on to specify what the guidance must contain and states it must include sanctions for failing to provide required information.
