World Cup Tickets

Asked if the securing of tickets for 350 school children disappointed by fraudulent tickets at the World Cup in Germany was down to Richard Caborn’s charm and diplomacy, the PMOS said that it was down to a team effort including DCMS in which Richard Caborn played a very important part. So had Sepp Blatter and his team at FIFA and the Premier League as well. This was genuinely something which DCMS had been working round the clock on and we were very grateful to them, as well as FIFA and the Premier League. Asked what role the Prime Minister played, the PMOS said that, if he could put it this way, the Prime Minister had given a lead on Radio Five which DCMS had no doubt been happy to follow.
