Mr CREAN - I present the following petition:

The Honourable Speaker and the Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth:

(a)   that death from mass starvation and disease is occurring among Pakistan's refugees on a scale unprecedented in modern history.

(b)   that, as part of the world community, the Australian Government has an immediate responsibility for concerted action.

Your petitioners most humbly pray:

That the Australian Government take steps to offer employment, at least on a temporary basis, and in order to effect some relief, to academic and qualified persons among the persons from Bangla Desh.

Your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received.
