Warley MP John Spellar declared he was disappointed, but not surprised, at yesterday’s vote in the Commons when Tories and Lib Dems combined to prevent restrictions on ticket touts.
John Spellar MP said:-
“Proposals from the House of Lords and from Labour Members to put proper controls on ticket touts were comfortably defeated last night. The real losers will be sports and music fans who are being ripped off. That is why all the major sporting organisations backed the changes. It is shameful that all the Tory MPs from the Black Country chose to back the ticket touts rather than the fans.”
