To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Mackay respectfully showeth:

That the intention of Telecom Australia to close the Mackay Directory Assistance Centre will:

downgrade telephone services to Mackay and district.

deprive customers of a personalised reliable telephone service.

reduce job opportunities in the area.

increase the likelihood of the eventual closure of the exchange.

We the undersigned believe that Telecom Australia has a social responsibility to provide a sound, reliable, personalised telephone system.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that your honourable House will call on the Government to intervene to stop Telecom's proposed closure of the Mackay Directory Assistance Centre.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
