We recently saw the removal of Hull City Council’s use of section 222 of the Local Government Act (1972) to effectively criminalise sex workers in Hull, which came after we took legal action through a Judicial Review. This was taken as a last resort after a long period of direct meetings and campaign work, followed by yet another renewal of the legislation in December 2019.
The Judicial Review has resulted in a legal obligation for Hull City Council to include the statutory policies and police guidance which prioritise the safety of sex workers (twelve times more likely to be murdered than non sex workers), as well as to consult and include those with lived experience in the formation of their new approach alongside Humberside Police. They are also committed to ensuring that in future, they abide by their Equalities Act duties and producing evidence of engaging with these obligations.
We welcome these new commitments, look forward to working together in the future and seeing a safer environment for sex workers, all women and all people in this city, as a result.
Our deepest thanks in supporting and contributing to our campaign and legal case go to the Public Law Project, LankellyChase, National Ugly Mugs (NUM), English Collective of prostitutes, Rosie Campbell and Maggie O’Neill. We certainly could not have got here without you.
