To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of certain electors of Australia respectfully showeth:

That there is a shortage of nursing home beds within the Adelaide Hills Region. The ratio of nursing home beds per 1,000 people over 70 is only 34 beds, which includes the 30 beds for the proposed Strathalbyn Nursing Home.

Your Petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Federal Government recognise that Strathalbyn is part of a rural sub-region which is desperately underserviced with nursing home accommodation and immediately provide capital funding to enable the Nursing Home at Strathalbyn to be built.

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