To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives:

A petition of Australian pensioners and superannuants residing in the Manning region who bring to the attention of the House that hardship and deprivation will be created to pensioners and superannuants by the proposed increase to pharmaceutical prescription charges.

We, the undersigned petition the House of Representatives to reconsider the intended increase of the cost of prescriptions to pensioners as this severe impost will cause extreme hardship to most of Australia's senior citizens who are already experiencing difficulty due to the large monetary gaps in health care.

by Mr Vaile (from 191 citizens).
