The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

That there is widespread community concern about the proposal to irradiate food in Australia.

Your petitioners, most humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled, should:-

(1) Block the introduction of food irradiation into Australia and

(2) Ban the import of cobalt-60 and caesium 137 and caesium 134 to be used to irradiate food products,

and your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
