The MP promoting the main bill, Tim Barnett, believes the amendment, in the name of Labour colleague Phil Goff, is one that may be passed.
Another might be that of Immigration Minister Lianne Dalziel, banning people on temporary visas from sex work. Parliament will begin a free-ranging debate on at least seven groups of amendments to the private member's bill, which is subject to a conscience vote. But voting is not expected for at least a fortnight, and could be six weeks away. Under Mr Goff's amendment, court registrars would issue certificates as the operator of a prostitution business to anyone who employed at least another prostitute.
People such as gang members and people convicted of serious violent, sex or drug offences would not be eligible. An applicant would be able to apply for a waiver to a district court judge, and Mr Barnett said someone who had not offended for a long time might be considered for a waiver.
The record of identity of a certified brothel operator would be available for inspection only by the operator and by the police - but only to help investigate an offence. Mr Barnett said that the confidentiality of the list would be a protection for the sex worker. He said he spoke to a woman in a collective of three or four massage parlour workers last week. She doesn't want her whanau name to be known to everyone. New Zealand Herald. Subscribe to Premium.
