HC Deb 12 April 1937 vol 322 c633W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Home Secretary the number of cases of flogging in the prisons of the country during the years 1934, 1935, and 1936, respectively?

Mr. Lloyd

I presume that the hon. Member is referring to corporal punishment for prison offences. If so the figures for which he asks are as follow: in 1934, two, in 1935, none, and in 1936, six.
