Campaigning against an application for a new strip club on Bank Street, Mary Creagh MP said:
“Strip clubs can change the character of a city and make it look and feel seedy. I want to make it clear they are not welcome in Wakefield. The last Labour government changed the law so these clubs had to have a special license and can be rejected by the Council. I have already written to Wakefield Council objecting to the application and I will be campaigning alongside councillors Margaret Isherwood, Betty Rhodes and Tracey Austin to stop this place opening up next to the refurbished Unity Hall and Wakefield Theatre
