South Australian state parliament could soon vote on decriminalising sex work within months after an Upper House committee, including Australian Conservatives’ MLC the Hon Robert Brokenshire, examined written submissions and interstate brothels.
When talking to the Advertiser this week Mr Brokenshire disagreed with the committee report’s recommendation, however, “acknowledged current laws were outdated, but said the evidence did not successfully make the case for decriminalisation.”
The Australian Conservatives MLC “agreed with the Australian Christian Lobby that the Nordic model – where criminal charges apply to someone who pays money for sexual services, but not the sex worker themselves – was the best solution.”
“Mr Brokenshire said the focus should be on discouraging people from becoming a sex worker or paying for sex rather than promoting it as a career.”
