To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of certain citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

that we are gravely concerned about the threat to the continued development of sponsored sport in Australia arising out of the Australian Broadcasting Tribunal 's draft interpretation of Section 100 (10) of the Broadcasting and Television Act which may result in the withdrawal of tobacco companies' funds from all sports sponsorship.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that

The Parliament continues to accept the current interpretation of the above section of the Act which allows 'accidental and incidental' advertising matter to be broadcast.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
