If you feel there are any problems you should put them in the discusion - this is only because you should have eradicated ethical issues before running the experiment!!

By not having any thats a good thing I beleive (apart from mentioning some as you have in design and how you countered them)

no, an ethical section is not needed. The markers will assume it is all ethical before the experiment is run - here at uni you cant even look for particpants until your proposal passes an ethics committee.

Mentioning the right to withdraw etc should be all you need. Hope that helps
