To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives assembled in Parliament:

The Petition of certain citizens of Australia draws the attention of the House to the mounting public concern as to the future of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Your petitioners therefore ask the House to ensure that no cuts be made to the funding of the ABC and that triennial funding arrangements be retained. Furthermore, we call on the House to ensure that ABC services be free of commercial sponsorship and advertising.

Mr McMullan
