§ 21. Mr. Robathan
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what measures the Government have taken to promote good discipline in school classrooms. 
§ Mr. Robin Squire
My right hon. Friend announced on 27 September a range of initiatives to help schools combat the problem of disruptive pupils. These initiatives build on guidance on pupil behaviour and discipline sent to all schools, as part of the "Pupils with Problems" pack in May last year. We have also asked the consultative 841W group on school standards to advise the Department on what else can be done to help schools maintain and improve discipline.
