HC Deb 12 February 1880 vol 250 c515

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he proposes, either by provisions in the Army Discipline Bill, or by any other measure, to relieve British soldiers from punishment by flogging, and thus put Her Majesty's Army in this matter in the same position as the armies of other civilised powers?


in reply, said, it was proposed to bring in an Army Discipline and Regulation Act Continuance Bill, as was proposed last year.
