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

That there is widespread community concern about the proposal to Irradiate Food in Australia.

Your petitioners, most humbly pray that the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled, should-

(1) Block the introduction of food irradiation into Australia; and

(2) Ban the import of Cobalt-60 and Caesium 137 and Caesium 134 to be used to irradiate food products.

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