The factsheets on lap-dancing, escort work and stripping were produced by COBRA -The Complete Business Reference Adviser. The firm behind it, Cobweb Information, says it provides several thousand "practical, factual and digestible" reports, guides, factsheets and reference resources.
Its website says it covers hundreds of the most common -and many of the less common- small business trades, sectors and professions. The Welsh Government has now removed links to the factsheets from the Big Ideas Wales website, which aims to help young people start their own businesses.
The Welsh Government says an 'external third party' provided factsheets on lap-dancing, stripping and escort work that could be reached from its Big Ideas Wales website. An urgent investigation was ordered by the First Minister after he was told about the links during questions in the Senedd.
First Minister Carwyn Jones has ordered a full investigation into allegations that a Welsh Government-supported website offered young people advice that included:
- How to set up your own escort agency
- How to set up your own lap dancing club
- How to become a stripper
He was told in the Senedd that links to factsheets on all three topics had appeared on the Big Ideas Wales website, which aims to help young people start their own businesses.
Links to the factsheets are not currently available on the Big Ideas Wales website
