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.
