Who benefitted from the Wolfenden Report and subsequent legislation
We have recently celebrated the 60th anniversary of the publication in 1957 of the Wolfenden Report, chaired by the then University of Reading Vice-Chancellor, Sir John Wolfenden. This Home-Office commissioned “Report of the Committee on Homosexual Offences and Prostitution” recommended legalisation of homosexual acts between men, but when considering prostitution had much less liberal recommendations. In this debate we will look at who did benefit from the report and the legal changes that it inspired.
