To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled in parliament;

The petition of certain electors of the Division of Paterson draws to the attention of the House the following information:

Wallalong in the Division of Paterson is a small community surrounded by similar small communities (eg; Hinton Morpeth and Woodville.) All of the surrounding communities have a 2321 postcode, however, Wallalong is 2320 the same as the City of Maitland. This puts a higher insurance rating on Wallalong requiring the residents to pay higher premiums than the area should attract.

Your petitioners therefore request the House to:

Change the postcode for Wallalong to 2321 to bring it in line with the above surrounding areas and enable residents to obtain the correct insurance ratings.

by Mr Baldwin (from 342 citizens)
