Mr KILLEN (RIVERINA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I present a petition from Frederick Watson, of Gungahleen, Federal Capital Territory, stating that the time is opportune for the resubdivision of Australia into smaller selfgoverning federal units, and for the readjustment of the system of government, to secure the sympathetic development of all parts of Australia, to reduce the overhead costs of government by many millions of pounds per annum, and to limit the system of party politics to the Federal Parliament only, and praying that the Parliament of the Commonwealth may pass the legislation necessary to submit to a referendum of the people at the ensuing general elections certain constitutional alterations, and also praying that the petitioner may be heard at the bar of the House in support of his petition.

Petition received.
