Indeed there is, my Lords. I am grateful to my noble friend for drawing that to the House's attention. It is important, for example, that people do not buy theatre tickets for seats with restricted views. Whereas the theatre box office would make such restrictions clear, the secondary seller may be under no obligation whatever to do so, thereby causing enormous unfairness. That point needs to be taken on board.
