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

The financial plight of grape producers, their families and their respective local communities.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government act now during the 1985-86 Budget considerations to:

Remove the sales tax impost on all Australian produced wine.

Make funds available for the establishment of an institution to administer the restructuring of the grape producing industry.

Place revenue raising imposts on all imported wine and wine spirit.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
