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

The petition of certain residents of, and visitors to, Port Stephens draws to the attention of the House the sale by tender of surplus Defence land, known as Gan Gan Army Camp, on the Tomaree Peninsula, Port Stephens, in the State of New South Wales.

Your petitioners therefore ask the House to instruct the Minister for Defence to suspend the sale forthwith. The House is further asked to instruct the Minister for Defence to arrange for this land to be returned to the New South Wales Government for inclusion in the Tomaree National Park for community use and the protection of a rare and diminishing environment.

by Mr Baldwin (from 573 citizens)
