Plans to change Northern Ireland prostitution and trafficking laws

If passed into legislation, the Human Trafficking and Exploitation Bill, proposed by the DUP’s Lord Morrow, would make Northern Ireland the lead in the UK on human trafficking law.

The bill aims to enhance services for victims as well as making it an offence to pay for sexual services from a prostitute.

The consultation period ends on 18 October.

Buying or selling sex is legal across the UK, however, many activities related to prostitution, including kerb crawling, running a brothel and pimping, are all outlawed.

Lord Morrow said it was illegal to pay for sex in Northern Ireland from someone who has been coerced.

“The majority of rescued victims of trafficking in Northern Ireland are those brought here for sexual exploitation and I believe that we can do better,” he said.

    It is better also to legalize and tax prostitution.
    Dear Britishes, do not coplain if you are paying so much fees for your State, if this one does not want to tax prostitution!
