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

That your petitioners are gravely concerned at the proposed reduction in the recurrent grant to Australian Halls and Colleges of Residence. That any such reduction will seriously affect the ability of many students to reside within Halls and Colleges.

Your petitioners therefore humbly call upon the Federal Parliament to restore the recurrent grant to the real level of 1983, and to increase the funding of tertiary student accommodation, such additional funds being allocated on a needs basis.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
