Corporal Punishment In Schools

EDM number 1723 in 1992-93, proposed by Nigel Evans on 30/03/1993.

That this House notes the need for increased discipline of unruly pupils in United Kingdom schools; therefore welcomes the recent ruling of the European Court with regard to their decision that it is legal for independent schools to discipline their fee-paying pupils with corporal punishment; and believes that this form of punishment should be made available to all schools including the state funded sector.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
