Publicity around a change to Northern Ireland's prostitution laws caused a spike in business, a new report has claimed. Academics carried out a three-year review of the impact of the Human Trafficking and Exploitation Act The law introduced the "Nordic model", which criminalised paying for sexual services in Northern Ireland. Sex workers, consulted for the review, said media discussion at the time publicised the idea of prostitution.

Sex work law change 'caused spike in demand'

The report said sex workers noted "a surge in business in the run-up to the legislation and its immediate aftermath and it was suggested that the public debate around Article 64A publicised prostitution to those who had never ly considered it". He criticised the methodology of the report and claimed on Good Morning Ulster that those who compiled it had a "clear track record on this issue in favour of decriminalisation".

Lord Morrow added that he was "disappointed in some regard with how the legislation has been implemented" but that it had led to arrests and convictions "so the PSNI and PPS Public Prosecution Service can build on this in the future".

Lord Morrow's comments on bbcgmu regarding my personal ideology, and that of the research team regarding the DOJ review of sex work legislation are unfounded and untrue. As always in research, the search for the truth was paramount, and we simply reported what was found. Earlier, she told Good Morning Ulster that "the demand for sex work is as strong as ever".

The report, based on research which examined a period between June and Decemberalso found an increase in online advertising for prostitution. The report also examined issues around the safety of sex workers and human trafficking for exploitation. On the basis of the findings, it concluded there was "no evidence that the offence of purchasing sexual services has produced a downward pressure on the demand for, or supply of, sexual services". The report said the "tailing off" in demand, which had been expected, has not happened.

Rather, the legislation "has had little effect on the supply or demand for sexual services". On the issue of safety, the report states serious crimes against sex workers are "comparatively rare". However, information gathered from a website used by sex workers to report instances of abuse showed increases in the of reports it had received of assaults, sexual assaults, and threatening behaviour.

The report also stated there has been a decrease in the of on-street sex workers, falling from about 20 operating in Northern Ireland indown to less than 10 currently. Inahead of the law change, baseline research was carried out by the Department of Justice to give a point of comparison.
