HC Deb 13 November 1969 vol 791 c134W
Mr. Winnick

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will reconsider his decision not to ban the use of the cane in schools for the disabled.

Mr. Edward Short

As I have stated to the House, I am strongly opposed to the corporal punishment of handicapped children, but I do not think that this should be made a matter of Government Regulation.
