The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The humble petition of residents of Mirboo North and adjoining districts in the State of Victoria respectfully showeth that following the introduction of Medicare in February of 1984, and in the light of the McClelland Report, all Victorian Private Bush Nursing Hospitals will be detrimentally affected.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government recognise and support the vital role played by Victorian Bush Nursing Hospitals in the Health Care of rural communities and in particular that the Government ensures that the impact of Medicare is not such as to cause the decline and loss of the basic general medical services that these hospitals provide.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
