To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of New South Wales respectfully showeth:

(1) That in the past, because of their remoteness, citizens in rural areas have not been able to receive SBS (Multicultural) television through conventional means.

(2) That recently those citizens have been able to receive the SBS television service from the Aussat satellite by means of receive-only earth stations.

(3) Now express concern that by Government decision this service is to be terminated.

Your petitioners therefore urge that SBS television continue to be made available to citizens in rural areas of Australia by means of the AUSSAT 1 satellite and receive-only earth stations.

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