Manukau Council’s bill to ban (STREET) prostitution defeated

NZ Herald 12 Oct 06
A bill that would have given Manukau City Council powers to ban street prostitution was defeated in Parliament last night. It was voted down 73-46 on its second reading, with MPs casting personal votes.
A select committee last month recommended that it should not go any further, saying it did not believe there should be local laws which were different to national laws.
