    Material provided by the Government showed over the six months between September and April police attended 288 child assault incidents.

    In the three months prior to this 111 incidents were attended.

    Of the 288 incidents, 13 involved “smacking”,

    This was up from three in the previous period.

    None of the incidents resulted in a prosecution.

    Of the 288 incidents, 69 involved “minor acts of physical discipline.

    Of those only four resulted in prosecution, one did not proceed and was treated through diversion.

    Three other alleged offenders have remanded on bail and are due to appear in early July.
