Stop Ticket Touts Profiteering
Responsible department: Department for Culture, Media and Sport
Tickets for concerts and sporting events are bought and immediately sold for massive profit. This means the ordinary fan has to pay not only a "booking fee" and a "postage charge" but a huge uplift from profiteers with no interest in the event.
Ticketmaster, not content with fleecing people for postage costs on e-tickets (!?!) have set up "getmein.com" which gains a second booking fee from the profiteers!
This was outlawed in the 80's with football tickets and this legislation must be widened to cover these chancers.
