HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 c325W
40. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection if she will take action to prevent the selling by ticket touts of tickets at several times their original cost.

Mr. Maclennan

I do not think that this is an area in which Government action on prices grounds is feasible or necessary. Customer resistance is the best prevention of a practice to which the hon. Member understandably objects.
