To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectively showeth:

That the very large number of vehicle component parts imported into Australia is having a serious and detrimental effect on the workforce and the availability of jobs in the vehicle component parts industry in Australia.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the tariffs on imported vehicle component parts be substantially increased to the point where it becomes uneconomic to import, and vehicle manufacturers and assemblers in Australia will be forced to produce vehicle component parts locally thereby creating more employment opportunities in Australia.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
