Question Without Notice No. 778 asked in the Legislative Council on 12 September 2018 by Hon Colin Tincknell

Minister responding: Hon P. Papalia
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 12 September 2018

EVENTS — TICKET RESALE

778. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the Minister for Tourism:

I make it clear that I received some information since I asked this question on 30 August. I am looking for further verification. Can the minister please advise when the government is planning to fulfil its election promise to follow Victoria and put in place legislation that prevents the resale of tickets to major events for more than 10 per cent of the original price?

Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:

I thank the member for notice of the question. It is important to understand that the information provided was at 30 August, so it is a couple of weeks old and might not represent the current thinking. The following information has been provided by the Minister for Tourism.

Tourism Western Australia is currently developing legislation for events in Western Australia, which will include ticket resale and scalping provisions. The government is committed to finalising and implementing the proposed legislation as soon as possible.
