To the Honourable the Speaker and members of Parliament in Canberra assembled.

The petition of concerned citizens of New South Wales respectfully showeth:

The proposed cessation of the Department of Social Security visiting service to Scone has caused your petitioners deep concern.

The service is very well utilised and if this service ceases loss of face to face contact will result in confusion and great difficulty for local pensioners and beneficiaries. With the only remaining contact being through letters and over the telephone they are more likely to make mistakes resulting in overpayments and dissemination of wrong information.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that your honourable House will re-appraise the situation and continue the visiting service to Scone.
