Lap Dance Club Crackdown
5:31pm 10th September 2013
There are calls to give Cornish people more powers to stop lap dancing clubs opening.
Newquay MP Stephen Gilbert is worried some places still able to hold regular one-off nights.
But he has told a debate in parliament a lot of progress has been made in the resort over the last five years: "Many people would tell me that they felt scared to go into the town centre on an evening. Families rightly complained about the ubiquity of sexualised images in the main street and on the roads leading to the town's beaches but working together we as representatives of the community have been able to address these concerns.
"This is not a debate led by prudish intolerance. I have never been to a lap dancing club and I do take the view that real men don't buy women for entertainment. But, as a liberal, I do accept that if adults want to make those choices then that is up to them."
