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

Pornography

To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully shows:

That we are totally opposed to any legislation which allows video films, films, and books dealing with sex, drugs, crime, cruelty and revolting phenomena, to be imported, produced and dealt with commercially in Australia. We, the undersigned request the Government to abandon its 1983 decision to alter the A.C.T. Classification of Publications Ordinance forthwith.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
