To the Honourable the President and the members of the Senate and the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned citizens of New South Wales respectfully showeth.

That due to higher medical and hospital insurances, the voluntary health insurances contributors are finding that their weekly buying power is greatly reduced. The contributors are actually subsidising the non-contributors. The contributors are greatly disadvantaged by the present taxation system. We therefore call upon the Commonwealth Government to make the health insurance contributions tax deductible.

Your Petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate and House of Representatives in Parliament assembled will take immediate steps to bring about the wishes expressed in our petition.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
