§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in view of the fact that many celebrities, public figures and entertainers have been entering Great Britain when declaring support for and working in the interests of the Church of Scientology, why there is a distinction in treatment between some members of the Church and others entering the country.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The restrictions on people coming here for various purposes connected with Scientology do not discriminate between different classes of people.
§ Mr. Body
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what progress has been made to conform to EEC Directive 890/76 relating to the suppression of radio interference from fluorescent lighting luminaires;
(2) what progress has been made to conform to EEC Directive 889/76 relating to radio interference caused by household appliances.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
I am considering a report from the statutory advisory committee before making the necessary regulations under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 1949. The regulations will be issued shortly. Implementation of the EEC directive will be delayed because of problems in achieving conformity which are not confined to the United Kingdom.
