    2. Canes shall be made of rattan
    3. Canes shall be placed in water when not in use to prevent damage to the cane through splitting and to prevent unnecessary injuries though splinters .
    4. Canes shall only be used for punishment of convicted offenders
    5. Canes shall be treated with an antiseptic before use.
    Section 3: Medical Care

    10. Caning shall be limited to 25 strokes of the cane
    11. If the defendant cannot service all the strokes in one session, the remainder may be given at a later date, at the soonest convenience.
    12. Caning must be done with the buttocks exposed and bare.

    3. This Act may be cited as the Corporal Punishment for Serious Criminal Offences Act 2016
    Notes

    We need to be tough on crime. Crime rates in the United Kingdom are too high. Corporal punishment will be very effective in reducing crime rates. Just look at Singapore. They have corporal punishment and just look at how low their crime rates are.

    Isn't it a lot of effort to get a physician to come in and certify someone just for a mere 10 strokes of a cane?

    I'm under the influence by the wording of tthis bill that caning is replacing custodial sentencing? Surely not?

    "Caning shall immediately be halted if the physician or if one of the members of HM Prison Service object"

    This would be invoked almost immediately, as after 3 strokes, based on observations from Singapore's corporal punishment, the defendant would have already gone into a state of shock, requiring immediate medical treatment.

    You'll find that's called "capital punishment" rather than plain old boring corporal punishment, with capital generally not even falling into the category of corporal.
