To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned electors of Australia respectfully showeth:

That the Government should cancel the Fringe Benefits Tax they intend to impose on businesses throughout Australia because:

1. The tax discriminates against charitable organisations, sports clubs, private schools and religious organisations;

2. The tax will mean employees around Australia will suffer reductions in their renumeration packages;

3. The Bill places another impossible burden of paperwork on small business;

4. The Bill is absurd in its application to Government employees, who now constitute 32% of the workforce.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
