To the Honourable the President and members of Parliament for the Commonwealth of Australia assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That we the undersigned would call upon our government to introduce or amend legislation.

1 To place controls over video-cassettes so as to provide for the open availability through sale and hire outlets only of G. NRC, and M Rated video- cassettes.

2 To prohibit the availability through sale and hire outlets of R rated video- cassettes and restrict their use to adult theatres.

3 To prohibit completely the concept of X rated video-cassettes by the revision of the Customs and/or Censorship Regulations so that the production, import and distribution of such pornographic and sadisticly violent material be prevented.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
