HC Deb 11 December 1996 vol 287 c241W
35. Lady Olga Maitland

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what steps she is taking with regard to discipline in schools. [7089]

Mr. Forth

The Education Bill introduced on 30 October includes a package of measures to strengthen schools' ability to take action in the face of poor behaviour and discipline; to help ensure there is proper support for schools in dealing with pupils with behaviour problems; and to promote effective provision for such pupils out of school where necessary.
