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

The petition of certain citizens of the state of Queensland draws the attention of the House to the damaging impact of the GST on education. The GST will increase the cost of books, school uniforms, shoes, excursions, public transport and extra-curricula activities such as swimming and music lessons.

Your petitioners therefore ask that the House exempts education from the GST.

by Mr Bevis (from 51 citizens).
