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

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

There is widespread concern that services and jobs will be cut back if the rest of Telstra is sold, particularly in outer metropolitan, rural and regional Australia.

A fully privatised Telstra will focus on profits not people; shareholders will be more important than customers.

We therefore pray that the House oppose any further attempts by the Liberal Party and Nationals to sell Telstra.

by Mr Crean (from 43 citizens)
