The Foster Report is a 1971 report, entitled Enquiry into the Practice and Effects of Scientology, written by Sir John Foster, for the government of the United Kingdom, regarding the Church of Scientology.[1]

Several official inquiries were made into Scientology in England, Australia, and elsewhere and a number of reports were published by respective governments in the late sixties and early seventies.

The "Foster Report" was written by Sir John Foster for the government of the United Kingdom and published December, 1971. It concluded that legislation was needed to control psychotherapy in the United Kingdom; as a result, a working party on the Statutory Registration of Psychotherapists was set up with Paul Sieghart as Chair. The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy was later established on a recommendation of the Sieghart Report.
