"You filthy little beasts would never have dropped Stink pellets if you'd known I had it in my power to whip you raw, would you, now? Nobody would have thought of throwing Fanged Frisbees down the corridors if I could've strung you up by the ankles in my office, would they? But when Educational Decree Twenty-nine comes in, Potter, I'll be allowed to do them things..."
Argus Filch on the Decree[src]

Although never actually passed, the Educational Decree Number Twenty-Nine was going to be one of Dolores Umbridge's Educational Decrees. [1] When passed, this Decree would give Argus Filch the powers to physically punish the students [1] However, Dolores Umbridge was sacked and her Educational Decrees were abolished before she had time to do this.

Behind the scenes

The non-canonical Educational Decree Number Twenty-Nine featured in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix gave the High Inquisitor the power to review extracurricular activities.
