Welsh Govt blames outside organisation for lap-dancing advice

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.

Immediate action was taken once we were made aware of the issue with access to the factsheets being blocked from the and Big Ideas Wales websites. The factsheets were among hundreds provided by an external third party provider COBRA, which also provides business start up information to other government organisations and bodies, including libraries, banks and universities, across the UK.
