Visitors to the Wales government website were shocked to see that it is now offering business tips for strippers.
Now, the first minister of Wales, said his office is investigating why the business website included tips and advice on the work in strip clubs.
Prime Minister Carwyn Jones, said Tuesday that his office is also investigating after it was reported that the section of “launch business ideas” on the business website offered advice on lap dancing, being an escort and owning companies where such services are performed.
The “start-up business ideas” web page was removed on Tuesday.
The advice on the website included noting that a stripper “can expect to earn an average $358 a night.”
Jocelyn Davies, a Plaid Cymru Assembly Member of South Wales East, called the website “degrading to women.”
“I’m certainly not a prude, but it is difficult to understand how the Welsh government can believe that it is acceptable to provide information to help women become strippers or running a lap dancing club, which is classified as an establishment of sex,” he said.
