The Bulletin (Australia)
NEW SOUTH WALES, Western Australia, South Australia, and New Zealand are now catching up with Victoria in the investigation of the international cult of scientology. Last week the New South Wales Government instructed its Director of Psychiatric Services to investigate. This follows an earlier decision to ignore it as comparatively harmless. The change in policy follows the raising of a privilege issue when Mr. R. O. Healey, a Liberal Member of the Legislative Assembly, read a statutory declaration of a private ...

Oct 8, 1968 Skeleton in the Hubbard — Herald (Australia) More: link
A meeting of six people in a Noble Park house is hardly a dramatic resurgence. But the cult gained one objective — publicity. The cult invited police and State Cabinet Ministers to the meeting. None attended. Scientology is banned in Victoria, and the State Government has made it clear it will act to prevent any revival of the cult. The practice of Scientology is banned under the Psychological Practices Act, and the Crown Law Department, following Sunday's meeting, is considering whether ...

Jul 31, 1968 Is scientology sick? — The Scotsman (UK) More: link
The Scotsman (UK)
The cult of scientology won unwelcome publicity for itself last week when the Government banned foreigners coming to this country specifically to study it or to work at its centres. For a belief or pursuit which offers alleged improvements to adherents' personalities and which holds to the maxim, "if it's not written, it's not true," the organisers are remarkably chary of publicity and free with threats of writs for libel. It has recently opened three offices in Edinburgh, one of which ...
Jul 28, 1968 Scientology: Sex, hypnotism and security checks — Sunday Mirror (UK) More: link
Sunday Mirror (UK)
"SCIENTOLOGY is evil; its techniques evil; its practice a serious threat to the community, medically, morally and socially; and its adherents sadly deluded and often mentally ill. "It's founder is Lafayette Ron Hubbard, an American . . . who falsely claims academic and other distinctions, and whose sanity is to be gravely doubted." While the British authorities hummed and hawed, an official inquiry in Victoria, Australia, in 1965 condemned Hubbard and his organisation in these unmistakable terms. Intimate It branded Hubbard ...

The Times (UK)
The Minister of Health, who announced the Government's plans to clamp down on the cult of scientology yesterday, must consider himself in imminent danger of a "noisy investigation". "Noisy investigations" were recommended to scientologists by their guide and mentor, Mr. Lafayette Ron Hubbard, a Nebraskan, two years ago as one way to deal with the cuIt's growing number of critics. "You find out where he or she works or worked—doctor, dentist, friends, neighbours, anyone—and phone 'em up and say: 'I am ...
