HC Deb 31 March 1938 vol 333 cc2155-6
14. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Home Secretary whether he has now considered the report of the Departmental Committee on Corporal Punishment; and, if so, whether he intends to introduce legislation to implement the recommendations of that committee?

19. Mr. Creech Jones

asked the Home Secretary what steps are being taken to implement the recent report on corporal punishment?

Sir S. Hoare

The report will in due course receive the careful consideration of His Majesty's Government, but I am not in a position to make a statement at present.

Mr. Davies

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us when he will be in a position to make a statement?

Sir S. Hoare

I am afraid I cannot, to-day.
