A group of 37 European MPs are furious that when entering hotels, they encounter prostitutes on the premises. They are demanding the European Parliament only make use of hotels which guarantee there are no prostitutes in any room. In particular, they want “the European Parliament(t0) only use hotels which issue a guarantee that they are not involved in the sex trade, and that all staff have written guidelines on the issue.” They are worried that some members of their staff might be enticed by prostitutes to do things one should not do.
It is difficult to ascertain if the MPs also want room checks to find out if any member of Parliament is sleeping with a woman who is not his wife or wife who is not sleeping with a man who is not her husband. Does one define “prostitute” to mean someone who takes cash up front or does it also include someone who accepts presents?
