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

The petition of certain citizens of Sydney calls to the attention of the House that the recent allegations of bribery and scandal regarding the bidding process for hosting an Olympic Game has the potential to seriously damage the integrity and reputation of the Olympic movement.

Your petitioners therefore request that the House support the permanent staging of future Olympic Games at their original home in the city of Olympia, Greece, thereby eliminating the need for lobbying of individual IOC officials.

by Mr McClelland(from 1,311 citizens)
