HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c123W
103. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is satisfied that no corporal punishment is applied to West and East African soldiers; and whether he has received evidence of any noticeable decline in discipline since his statement of a year ago that this punishment was to be made illegal.

Mr. J. Freeman

I am obtaining a report and will write to my hon. Friend.
