Criminalising Demand

December 6, 2010

Trish Godman, MSP, has launched a consultation for her proposed BIll to criminalise the purchase and sale of sex in Scotland.

The Women’s Support Project supports criminalising demand and sees this as essential in order to reduce the harm that prostitution cases to individuals, familes and communities.  We do not support further criminalisation of the `sellers`, who are exploited in prostitution. We will be producing a briefing in conjunction with the Scottish Coalition Against Sexual Exploitation and this will be circulated in early January.

The deadline for responding to the consultation is 18th February 2011.
