The State Government has acted to prevent the use of the word "scientologist" as a business name in SA.
The Attorney-General (Mr. Millhouse) has issued a direction under the Business Names Act including the word scientologist among other words and phrases which cannot be registered as business names without the consent of the Minister.
Our Political Reporter says that the word scientology was added to the list some time ago. Scientologist is now included in a list published in the latest issue of the "Government Gazette."
Last week the Legislative Council passed a Bill to prohibit the practice of Scientology in SA.
This has yet to be dealt with by the House of Assembly.
