HC Deb 01 May 1947 vol 436 c259W
67. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that cup final tickets, priced 3s., were being sold for £7 each at Wembley on Saturday last; and whether he will take powers to prohibit the resale at a higher price of all tickets on which entertainment tax is paid.

Mr. Ede

I am informed that a number of tickets were resold at enhanced prices. I do not regard my hon. Friend's suggested remedy as practicable.
