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

That there is widespread community concern about the proposal to irradiate food in Australia.

Your petitioners, most humbly pray that the Senate in Parliament assembled, should:

1. Block the introduction of food irradiation into Australia

2. Ban the import of Cobalt-60 and Caesium 137 and Caesium 134 to be used to irradiate food products,

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
