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

That the taxation proposals as outlined in the Government's ``White Paper'' are anti-business,

They will destroy incentive, by penalising business growth; they will cost Australians jobs and contribute to higher welfare payments,

Such taxes will discriminate against and inhibit progress, growth and employment throughout the nation.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Tax Proposals be rejected.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
