HC Deb 27 January 1967 vol 739 c377W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will take steps, as recommended by the Plowden Committee, to end corporal punishment in schools.

Mr. Crosland

I will consider this further when I have the comments on the recommendations of the Plowden Committee for which I have asked bodies representing the Local Education Authorities and the teachers.
