Q9 - Prostitution

Labor believes that paramount consideration must be given to the occupational health and safety of the workers in the sex industry and regulations to better protect the sexual health of the Tasmanian population and supports legislation focused on practical concerns that deliver better outcomes in health, wellbeing and safety.
