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

The petition of certain electors of Australia draws the attention of the House to the Howard Government's failure to address issues surrounding the lack of a Medicare Office on Bribie Island.

We call on the Federal Government to provide adequate services to the people of Bribie Island, many of whom are elderly and cannot travel to other areas.

As Bribie Island is one of the fastest growing areas on Queensland, the Federal Government has an obligation to meet the needs of both the elderly and families by supplying funding to adequately meet the needs of our growing community.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to address these issues and provide a Medicare Office on Bribie Island.

by Mr Swan (from 2,254 citizens)
