Hampshire WI

In a major blow to their high-profile campaign, the National Federation of Women's Institutes did not include decriminalising prostitution on a shortlist of issues to debate at next year's AGM.

The controversial proposal was knocked back earlier this month by a panel of 23 WI members who represented different counties scattered throughout the country.

If the resolution had been successful nationally the WI's 250,000 members would have then lobbied Govern-ment to change the law.

The shortlist of resolutions they selected included: The declining honey bee population, action on flooding, reinstatement of hospital in-house cleaning, residential care fees for the elderly, the effect of GP-led practices in rural areas and a review of systems in family courts.

no idea, maybe they knew that it would be a heated discussion (some other branches favor the Swedish model) and therefore preferred to avoid the issue altogether and concentrate on less controversial topics, such as the declining honey bee population
