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

And, to the Australian Government.

This petition of concerned residents of the Bega Valley Shire respectfully points out that child care services are essential to all communities, especially rural areas to-

enable women to undertake work

help overcome isolation

assist social development of children

provide relief in situations of stress.

Your petitioners humbly pray that;

1. That the Australian Government-

(a) make funds available for the establishment of a child care centre, situated in Bega and serving the surrounding townships

(b) make resources available to research and monitor the needs of rural communities for child care and related services.

2. All Federal members of Parliament and Senators make strong representations to the Australian Government to act towards these goals.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
