Conservative MP Nadine Dorries asked House of Commons leader Andrew Lansley to bring the issue of a book that "advocates the beating of children" to Parliament in a bid to pressurise Amazon into removing it from their website.
I'm rising to ask you if you can use your good office to apply pressure on an issue which has come to my attention in the last 24 hours.
It's regarding a book which is for sale on Amazon called To Train Up A Child by Michael and Debi Pearl. It actually advocates the beating of children under the age of 12 months using a switch.
The book recommends that switch be cut from a willow tree and be no longer than 12 inches in length and 8cm in diameter.
The book advocates the use of paddles, rulers and other means to beat children from four months onwards.
