The issue of street prostitution is a problem for communities. Manukau City Council promoted legislation to parliament that sought to regulate street soliciting. These changes need to be matched with education and health campaigns. There is always going to be prostitution, therefore it needs to take place in a safe space.

We should not have any street prostitution in this country. It is not acceptable for girls to be out on the street corners. It does not send a good message to families and young people and lowers the tone of communities. It is also very dangerous for the prostitutes, and we have witnessed so many assaults and deaths in recent years as a result. Prostitution should only be permitted in controlled situations such as brothels and licensed premises for the girls' own health and safety.

I believe the private lives of consenting adults should remain their sole affair.
