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

The Petition of the undersigned are committed to Medicare, one of the world's fairest and most efficient health systems. We are concerned that the Howard Government's proposed changes to Medicare are fundamentally unfair, and reveal a philosophy of user-pays.

Your Petitioners request that the Senate amend any Medicare bills to preserve fair and equitable access to doctors services.

by Senator Allison (from 194 citizens).
