The Scientology organise- will not be barred from holding meetings in Edinburgh Public Halls, provided they abide by the Corporation's hall letting regulations.

This decision was made today by the Vacation Sub-Committee of the Finance Committee of the Town Council.

The Scientology organisation, the Committee were told, have made telephone inquiries about the letting of public halls, but so far no formal applications have been submitted.

Councillor James Slack, who took the chair at today's meeting, said: "We are adhering to normal practice. As far as we are concerned these people have not offended against any letting instructions and we are passing no comment on their organisation."

He added that the committee felt they had no reason to keep a specially careful watch on any Scientology meeting which might be held.
