It was routine to make the request when a telephone was being used to contravene the law. Similar action had been taken against S.P. bookmakers who had used their telephones for taking ...

It was only the latest skirmish in the storm-ridden history of dianetics (

The practice of Scientology is banned under the Psychological Practices Act, and the Crown Law Department, following Sunday's meeting, is considering whether ...
