Disability and Access to Sex Workers: Secretary of State for Justice v A Local Authority and others

Martin Regan (Queen's University Belfast), Kevin J. Brown (Queen's University Belfast), Disability and Access to Sex Workers: Secretary of State for Justice v A Local Authority and others, 72 N. Ir. Legal Q. 596 (2021):

This is a commentary on Secretary of State for Justice v A Local Authority and others, where the decision of the Court of Protection has been overturned by the Court of Appeal. The judgment has implications for (i) the article 8 and article 14 rights of those who lack capacity to arrange lawful sexual services; (ii) the criminal liability of their carers who are enlisted to assist with such arrangements; and, potentially, (iii) the ban on payment for sexual services in Northern Ireland.
