Should parents be allowed to spank

In the UK they are talking about banning spanking. It is a really big controversy. At the moment the law in the UK says parents can "smack" or spank their children as long as it does not leave a mark. What do you think?

i think smacking should be banned but I don't really see how it can be enforced. I don't agree with smacking - I have two year old boy who if he touches something he's not supposed to (eg hot stuff that may burn him) I have been known to tap his hand but not hard - he hasn't even cried..but this is more to enforce that it could hurt him if he touches. I would never smack him - it breaks my heart to hear him cry, would be even worse if I caused it.
