asked the Secretary of State for Social Services on what date he received the report of Sir John Foster on Scientology; when he expects to conclude consideration of the report; and why it has taken so long to com to a conclusion.
The report of Sir John Foster on Scientology was submitted to the Secretary of State for Social Services of a previous Administration and was published in December 1971. The whole question of Government policy towards scientology is under active consideration but I cannot yet forecast when that consideration will be concluded. I will write further to the hon. Member about this matter as soon as I am in a position to do so.
