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

The petition of certain electors from the State of South Australia draws the attention of the House to the following:

The significance to the people of South Australia of the property known as Glenthorne, an area of approximately 209 hectares situated at O'Halloran Hill. Glenthorne was purchased by the Commonwealth Government in 1913 and has been used by the Commonwealth for a variety of purposes.

The current owner of the property, the CSIRO, no longer requires the land. The opportunity now exists to restore the land to its original condition and to integrate it into the surrounding Metropolitan Open Space.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the House:

Protect the land, currently known as Glenthorne, from urban or industrial development.

Grant ownership of Glenthorne to the people of South Australia.
