Never mind the embarrassment of a court summons landing on his family's doormat. Nine years ago, Sweden took the step of punishing the men who buy sex rather than the women who sell it.
There, it is legal to be a prostitute. But the man who pays for her service is committing an offence. Was it a wise move? The ladies of the Townswomen's Guild, one of Britain's leading women's groups, with 35, members, believe it was. When they gather at the Riviera International Leisure Centre in Torquay on Tuesday, it will top the agenda for debate. Should their mandate be passed, they will lobby Parliament to introduce similar legislation in Britain.

At face value, the Swedes have got it right. As Kajsa Wahlberg, head of the human trafficking unit of the Swedish police, says: ''We no longer have a problem with prostitutes.
