I know that the minister has listened, as I have, to survivors and those who have experienced prostitution. It seems to me that very few women are voluntarily involved in prostitution; the vast majority are forced to be in it, either by somebody else or by their circumstances.

Surely, if men are purchasing sex, they are guilty of violence against women and they should be criminalised.
