To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament, assembled.

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia showeth that the proposed legislation to allow the treatment of food with Cobalt 60 gamma rays should not take place. Food irradiation, we believe, can only be a backward step as to the health of the community at large.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Government not allow the irradiation of food to become legal.

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