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

The petition of certain citizens of Broken Hill and district draws the attention of the House to the uncertainty the Wik decision is creating throughout Australia.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House address all matters pertaining to the Wik decision as a matter of urgent priority and bring to an end the uncertainty that has eventuated since the Wik decision was handed down by the High Court on 23 December 1996.
