Just give 'em a damn good hiding

IF difficult youngsters were given a hiding at home there would be less juvenile delinquency, Mr. J.E. Hay said yesterday.

Mr. Hay, Mayor of Brighton, was welcoming delegates to the conference of the National Association of Remand Home Superintendents and Matrons.

"I realise you have not got an easy task -- in fact, it is a thankless task," he said.

"Very often a lot of these cases could be cured by what we used to have when I was a youngster -- a damn good hiding and orders to behave."
