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

We are deeply concerned at the present freedom of access to pornographic material in Video Tapes. Furthermore we consider the present legislation controlling the content of Video Tapes for general use as inadequate.

Your petitioners pray that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should: Take all actions to ensure the present laws are re-drafted, to exclude excessive violence from any Video Tape. To exclude explicit sex scenes, or sadistic sequences. To exclude in particular any involvement of children in sex sequences. Certainly to ban the present X-rated offering in Video Tapes.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
