To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate assembled: The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

1. That governments have a responsibility to maintain standards acceptable to society's wishes.

2. It cannot be guaranteed that X rated video material will not be viewed by children

Your petitioners most humbly pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled should: Not adopt the X Classification for Films and Video Tapes, nor Category 2 for Printed material. Further, that tighter restrictions be applied to R rated Films and Video Tapes and Category 1 Printed material.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
