To the Honourable President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled.

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia in Geelong requests that the Senate examine the proposal to set aside land currently protected under the Ramsar Treaty in order to provide for a chemical storage facility at Pt Lillias. Further, we request the Senate to examine whether the proposal to set aside an area alternate to the one now nominated by the Ramsar Treaty is in accordance with the requirement of that Treaty.
