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

The Petition of certain residents of the State of New South Wales draws to the attention of the House that funding cuts by the Federal Government to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation will have a detrimental effect upon the citizens of regional New South Wales and to the citizens of Australia in general. It is essential that Australia maintains an independent national broadcaster for radio and television in order to provide a service for all Australians.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to maintain the current level of funding to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Mr Nehl
