To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of the Federal Division of Fisher in Queensland respectfully showeth:

That the proposed Australian Bill of Rights Bill 1985 will endanger the Federal system of Australia, the State and Federal criminal justice systems, the State and Federal Police Forces, the State and Federal education systems, the independence of the churches and religious associations, marriage and the family, children, the unborn, the handicapped, the aged and the infirm, employer and employee relationships and Australian society generally.

Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that the House of Representatives, in Parliament assembled, urge the Government to:

Repeal the Bill of Rights legislation forthwith.

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