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

1. There is no legal barrier to the importation of X-rated videos into the A.C.T. or to their sale in the A.C.T.

2. The Government has ignored the repeated protests of the Senate and the people of Canberra on this situation.

3. As a result X-rated videos are being sold from Canberra to other States, although they are banned in all States.

Your petitioners therefore ask the Senate to put pressure on the Government to ban the importation and sale of X-rated video material.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
