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

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

(1) that the phasing down and eventual closure of the services of the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Centre at Glen Waverley will be detrimental to the rehabilitation of disabled Australian citizens;

(2) that the Glen Waverley Rehabilitation Centre is ``purpose'' built and its loss would deprive disabled Australian citizens of a unique multi-million dollar facility;

(3) that the essential accommodation for disabled Australian citizens will no longer be available.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray:

(1) that the phasing down of the services of the Glen Waverley Rehabilitation Centre be reversed immediately;

(2) that the one-hundred-and-four-bed residential facility be fully utilised immediately;

(3) that sufficient funding is provided by the Commonwealth Department of Community Services to operate the Centre at full capacity.

And we pray you may be conscious of God's sovereign purpose for our Nation and your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray.
