HC Deb 04 July 1928 vol 219 cc1392-3W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he receives a report of all floggings of boys under 18 taking place on training ships or other naval institutions; and, if so, whether he can give the number which have taken place in the year ending 1st June, 1928.


The punishment of flogging is by Admiralty order permanently suspended as reference to former questions on this subject will show. If the hon. Member means birching, I am happy to inform her that for the period named, June, 1927, to 1st June, 1928, no birchings have been inflicted.
