§ 36. Mr. Driberg
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs whether corporal punishment is still awarded judicially in Bermuda; what form it takes; and how many persons have been sentenced to it in each of the last five years.
§ Mr. George Thomas
Yes. The cane, the birch, or the cat. In 1962 there were six cases; in 1963, four; in 1964, none; in 1965, five; in 1966, none. With one exception, these sentences were all of caning.
