16. Sir Fergus Montgomery

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what measures she is taking to help schools enforce firm discipline. [25094]

Mr. Robin Squire

We are taking forward the package of measures which my right hon. Friend announced last September, through a programme of developmental projects, worth about £18 million over three years, to identify and promote best practice in managing pupil behaviour and through consideration of legislation to help bolster schools' authority.
