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

The petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House: We the undersigned object to the Federal Government's proposal to merge the Fitzroy and Richmond Centrelink offices that will:

Cause hardship to significant numbers of Centrelink clients.

Disadvantage many people with disabilities who have transport difficulties.

Discourage people from pursuing legitimate welfare entitlements.

We therefore pray that the House reverses their decision and considers the Federal Opposition's call to protect the Fitzroy and Richmond Centrelink offices.

by Mr Tanner (from 162 citizens)
