Definition Of A Brothel

EDM number 525 in 2008-09, proposed by Lynne Jones on 20/01/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Sexual offences.

That this House notes with disappointment that the Government has failed to use the Policing and Crime Bill to honour the commitment in the Home Office report of January 2006, A Co-ordinated Prostitution Strategy and a summary of responses to Paying the Price, for an amendment to the definition of a brothel so that two or three individuals could work together from shared accommodation; and is concerned that the omission of this provision misses an important opportunity to allow women in the sex trade to work more safely, to have more control over their work and to make it easier for them to leave the trade should they so wish.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
