SCIENTOLOGISTS in Edinburgh — some of whom have already been told that they may have to quit the country — are looking for help to keep the cult alive.

In the next few days, professional men — including doctors — welfare authorities, clubs, newspapers and private citizens in the city will be getting questionnaires through the post.

The questionnaire asks, among other things: Do you think Scientology is right or wrong? If you were able, are there any changes you would make?


A staff member in Edinburgh said last night: 'We have been told to get these things out as soon as possible. The people in charge want to find out the reaction to Scientology.'

Several students of Scientology — including some in Edinburgh — have been told to leave Britain by August 31.

Others have been asked to leave by the end of September, and the Home Office has warned that as Scientology is not recognised as an educational system, permits to stay will not be renewed.
