Plain Packaging

To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This Petition of Australian adults

Draws to the attention of the House that it is our belief Plain Packaging will not work. As tobacco consumers and Australian adults, we are increasingly frustrated with our freedoms being infringed. With the introduction of Plain Packaging, the government is now taking away our ability to distinguish between and choose brands. That is our decision to make, not the governments. Enough is enough!

We therefore ask the House to request that the government remove Plain Packaging from its agenda and that our voice be heard, in the light of the approx. $7 billion we contribute annually in tobacco excise.
