In June last year, State MP Steph Key addressed around a hundred protesters supporting her bill to decriminalise prostitution.
The current laws are more than 60-years-old and there have been six previous attempts to decriminalise sex work since 1980.
Ms Key’s bill would decriminalise all forms of prostitution, including at home, in brothels, escort services and street work.
Police Commissioner Mal Hyde has said that existing laws that make prostitution a criminal act were “archaic”.
In Queensland, Victoria, the Northern Territory and the ACT, there are varying licensing systems for sex workers. Prostitution is legal in NSW.
