New research has found 58% of the Welsh public believe it is already against the law to physically punish children in Wales

The research, which was carried out for the Welsh Government, also found just 35% of people said it would sometimes be necessary to smack a child.  The same research showed the level of support for smacking was even lower among those with caring responsibilities – including parents, guardians and family members – for children aged seven or less.  Just 28% agreed with the statement that “it was sometimes necessary to smack a child.”
