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

The Hawke Government's ID card proposal is the most far reaching and intrusive piece of Australian legislation ever, and that on all the evidence available will not tackle in the most cost-efficient and effective manner tax and social security fraud.

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

Reject Labor's ID card proposal to prevent a gross waste of taxpayers' money and a significant infringement of civil liberties.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
