The research contained in the report highlights the enormous complexity of sex work and prostitution today, and we will carefully consider the implications from this new evidence for policy in the Home Office and across Government.

Our priority remains tackling the harm that can be associated with prostitution and sex work, and to target those who exploit vulnerable people. These priorities will be our starting point for considering the research.
