Senator MOORE (Queensland) (16:34): by leave—I present to the Senate a document, which is a submission by Rise Queensland under the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-22. I believe this document, which is in the form of a nonconforming petition, has been circulated to the whips and agreed for tabling.

The Clerk: Petitions have been lodged for presentation as follows:

TO THE HONOURABLE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE SENATE IN PARLIAMENT ASSEMBLED.

This Petition of citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the Senate:

Despite rising youth unemployment, the Abbott government is threatening to cut the Youth Connections program that helps early school leavers to complete their education and get a job.

Youth Connections program has proven success in securing the future of over 75,000 young Australians

We therefore ask that the Senate:

Secures the future of the Youth Connections program by ensuring funding is provided in the 2014-15 Federal Budget

by Senator Lundy (from 2,399 citizens).

Petitions received.
