* restoring civil liberties
* repealing unnecessary laws
* cutting business and 3rd sector regulations
We should all use this opportunity to suggest repeals in the laws relating to the sex industry such as the Policing & Crime Act, the law around POCA, licensing of brothels, strict liability offences and all other relevant legislation infringing on people’s freedom to buy and sell sexual services safely.

Its all there waiting to be voted on! The more votes each area gets-the further up the list it goes and the more chance of it coming into the debates around policy.
If its not there-you can add your own arguments for people to comment and vote on.
So everyone, get typing, voting and suggesting! This is a chance to get our voices heard
