To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The petition of certain citizens of Australia shows their concern for the present unresolved economic, social, biological, genetic, environmental and technical problems associated with the mining of uranium, the development of nuclear power and the proliferation of nuclear weapons.

Your petitioners therefore pray that your honourable House will

1. prohibit the establishment in Australia of nuclear power plants and all other stages of the nuclear fuel cycle.

2. declare a moratorium on all mining and treatment of uranium in Australia.

3. prohibit the export of Australian uranium.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
