LONDON, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- British Education Department figures revealed more than 1,200 students ages 7 and under have been permanently expelled from school in the past five years.

The figures revealed 1,200 of the young students, 80 of whom were only 4 years old, were booted from school and 53,000 under the age of 8 were temporarily suspended during the five-year period, The Sun reported Tuesday.

Dan Poulter, a Conservative member of Parliament, blamed the Labor Party for the loss of control in classrooms.

"The [government] coalition is introducing a range of measures to help bring order back," Poulter said.
