HC Deb 09 November 1982 vol 31 c116W
44. Mr. Trippier

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will undertake a survey on school discipline; and if he will make a statement.

Dr. Boyson

A survey on this wide-ranging topic is unlikely to produce new information or lead to better solutions. The key to effective discipline—to which I attach great importance—lies in the quality of the head and staff of a school, and the support they receive from their governors and local authority.
