Research paper

A research paper on labour conditions in lap dance industry has been published by Dr Teela Sanders and Dr Kate Hardy  called  “Sex work: the ultimate precarious labour?, Criminal Justice Matters, 93:1, 16-17, DOI: 10.1080/09627251.2013.833760.  

Authors assess sex work in their labour as a part of wider processes of ‘flexibilisation’ that take place within modern society.

More consultations for SEV powers

Victoria, Hayes woes

A pub hosting exotic dancing is hoping a court will reinstate the operating permit withdrawn by councillors in the wake of drug arrests by police.

The owners of The Victoria in North Hyde Road, Hayes, have appealed to Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court the decision made by Hillingdon Council’s licensing sub-committee south on June 11 to revoke its licence . A preliminary hearing is scheduled for early October. 


The saga began when police raided the venue on May 14 and arrested nine people, of which seven were charged with drug dealing and drug possession offences and six admitted the offences , forcing the interim closure of the pub. 

Its owners appealed to the magistrates after being refused permission by the High Court on August 27 to launch a Judicial Review into the licensing sub-committee decision.

The same High Court judge quashed an interim relief order that had allowed The Victoria to re-open the month before pending the outcome of the High Court case.

A recent petition on their website has disappeared, but the pub held an open day (where no money changed hands) at the last weekend in September in the hope of getting locals to support the reopening cause.
