first_imgNZ Herald 16 November 2012New Zealand First say a bill before the Local Government and Environment select committee doesn’t go far enough to crack down on illegal street prostitution.NZ First’s social policy spokeswoman Asenati Lole-Taylor has drafted a separate bill to give proposed prostitution law reform the “teeth” to deal with confrontational street soliciting.She said people living in parts of South Auckland and Christchurch were outraged by street prostitution but were reluctant to voice their concerns because of intimidation by prostitutes and their minders.The Manukau City Council (Regulation of Prostitution in Specified Places) Bill 2010 was originally introduced as the Manukau City Council (Control of Street Prostitution) Bill 2005 in an effort to clamp down on street prostitution but was voted down.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10847888last_img
