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; and

(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.
