LARGE party of scientology students is believed to have flown into Scotland from Toronto yesterday.

After 146 passengers left the B.O.A.C. flight at Prestwick, dozens of scientology pamphlets and leaflets were found during the last stage of the flight to London.

A Home Office official said last night: "No scientology students were refused at Prestwick today, but it is possible they were admitted as visitors."

The Home Office does not recognise the cult as a bona fide student group, and any would-be students arriving in Britain are being sent back.

* Scotland Yard has been instructed to make a survey of the American-born cult. A Home Office official will help direct two chief inspectors of the Yard in their investigation.
