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

The petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House:

· That increases to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in the 2002 budget will hit those that can least afford it, families and pensioners.

· That this Government should remember the commitments made before the 2001 election in regard to the cost of prescription drugs.

We therefore pray that the House oppose the Howard-Costello plan to increase the cost of prescription drugs for Australians.

by Ms Jackson (from 18 citizens)
