COMMENTARY for Ban on Street Prostitution

Source: Family First

A Bill allowing Manukau City Council to ban street prostitution passed its first reading and has been sent to a select committee for public submissions. It has now been expanded to cover the whole of the Auckland Super City.

The purpose of this bill is to authorise the Auckland Council to make bylaws prohibiting the business of prostitution or commercial sexual services in specified public places in Auckland City. It is hoped that the legislation will then be extended to cover the whole of the country. e.g. Christchurch is also experiencing huge problems with this issue.

It’s a good law for families, should be extended to cover the whole of NZ, and the politicians should support the wishes of the local communities
