Submissions to the Sex Work Decriminalisation Select Committee close on 16th October

Submissions to the Sex Work Decriminalisation Select Committee (South Australia)  close on the 16th of October.

The purpose of the Bill is to amend various pieces of legislation to decriminalise sex work and extend protections to provide sex workers with the same rights and protections as other workers.

The Bill to decriminalise sex work in SA was read for a second time on Wednesday (9th September) in the Upper House.

The Bill has now been sent to a select committee of 7 politicians. This means that they meet to discuss the Bill and debate amendments to it.

The committee requires submissions from sex workers and organisations and community members to assist them in their decision making processes.

Submissions can be sent to: Leslie Guy, Secretary to the Committee, Legislative Council Select Committee on the Statutes Amendment (Decriminalisation of Sex Work) Bill 2015 via email leslie.guy@parliament.sa.gov.au
