Children Bill [Lords] — New Clause 12 — Reasonable punishment — 2 Nov 2004 at 17:45

Mr Charles Hendry MP, Wealden voted with the majority (No).

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:-

Those voting Aye in this division were seeking to outlaw reasonable chastisement (e.g. gentle smacking) of children.

The House divided: Ayes 75, Noes 424.
