    There's a wide range of files at the UK National Archives at Kew that cover Scientology.

    Files are organised by source, so each department of government has its own material. The Home Office, Foreign Office, various branches of the judiciary/prosecution services, the police, and the ministry of health/social services.... all have scientology files. There are currently 107 files in total.

    Numbering key for existing scientology files at NA:
    MEPO = Metropolitan Police
    MH = Ministry of Health
    HO = Home Office
    FCO = Foreign Office
    T = Treasury
    DPP = Department of Public Prosecutions
    CV = VAT tribunals
    J = Supreme court and related courts
    LAB = Labour/employment ministries under different names
    BT = Board of Trade [later Department for Trade and Industry]
    PREM = Office of the Prime Minister
    AT = various: environment, transport, local government
    FD = Medical Research Council
    CHAR = Charity Commissioners

    The files include material not just for scientology, but also for associated or similar groups e.g. The Process.

    Hoorah! We haz new subforum for this fascinating stuff. Thank you Sue.

    And thank you Horseradish for all your work AND those abbreviations. For those of us who are not britfags some of the abbreviations you use most often just don't stick (I've looked up MEPO via Googlefu more than a dozen times).

    /r/ Mods sticky this thread plox. So we have the much needed abbreviations readily up front for cross referencing sake.

    Ministry of Health and Medical Research Council files would interest me.
    (Mainly from once coming across old reports in my area of individuals being dumped at hospitals, having had mental breakdowns from Hubbard's lovely processing).

    You're doing a great job, Horseradish.
    Not expecting you to go through all those files, but if you ever manage to broaden your search, or another Anon steps in, that would be great.
