Downtown and Polo Park subversion Laws examined London Reuter invoking of the War measures act in Canada has caused Many other democracies to blow the dust off their own Laws directed against subversion. West Germany passed Emer gency Laws As recently As june 1968, to give the government sweeping Powers in the event of external aggression or internal tension. These Laws provide for the Bonn government to take Over the Western allies rights to tap telephones and open mail. Freedom of movement can be restricted All men Over 18 can be conscripted into the armed forces or civilian services and soldiers May be used to rein Force the police. France has several proce dures available for invoking special Powers. The Best known of these article 16 of the 1958 Constitution introduced by Gen eral de Gaulle gives the presi Dent Broad discretionary Powers to take the measures dictated by the circumstances in a Cri Sis. In the aftermath of the 1961 uprising by military men and algerian settlers general de Gaulle invoked article 16 to impose House arrest or internment on persons suspected of subversion to lengthen the period for which police could hold suspects and to ban publications. Even More severe would be the decreeing of a state of siege which would give the French military Many Powers normally exercised by civilian officials. Britain has no current equivalent of Canada s War measures act. The emergency Powers defence act of 1939, enabling undesirable aliens to be detained lapsed after the second world War. But the 1920 emergency pow ers act amended in 1964, gives the government the right to pro claim a state of emergency if vital services Are in peril. This act was invoked during a sea men s strike in 1966. The Northern Ireland govern ment in Belfast has strength ened its own Legal Powers banned religious parades and imposed local curfews since protestant roman Catholic riots flared up two years ago. The United states president would be barred from adopting such drastic measures As those of prime minister Trudeau. A state of War with a clearly identified foreign enemy must exist before most of the presidency s extraordinary Powers can be used. Britain counts christians London special offs Only two per cent of the people of Britain Are convinced that there is no god and 81 per cent think it is important that Bri Tain should regard itself As a Christian country. These figures come from an inquiry made by the Independent television authority into the religious thought and habits of British people in order to have a basis for their programme planning. Asked about the character of god 42 per cent said they thought of him As an Imper Sonal Power and Only 37 per cent regard him As a person. But 12 per cent said they believed god to be so real and personal that he watches Over what they Are doing. The investigation was made on a Sample poll of some adults in Britain and Northern Ireland. Since a similar poll was made in there appears to have been a Sharp increase in the number of britons who deny membership of any Church from six per cent to 22 per cent. Fifty per cent of the population claim to belong to the Church of England nine per cent Are roman Catholic six per cent methodist five per cent presbyterian and eight per cent belong to the smaller de nominations. These figures present a View of Britain which appears to be contradicted by the reports of Small decreasing Atten dances at Public worship i the of Arches. But according to sonic commentators tie figures show that being religions is no Tonger Woji Cli Orch forty six per cent of the people posed said that their religions fiefs affect their everyday lives Gate a Jot and 5f per cent said that their purpose is to Lead a Good boast life.
