Law 'will help trafficked women'


The law on prostitution in England and Wales is set to change - the government is proposing a change to make it illegal to pay for sex with a prostitute working to benefit someone else who is controlling them. Crucially, the onus is on the client to know that the prostitute is working for a pimp or a drug dealer. Niki Adams, a spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes, and Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the clampdown.
