Mr HAMER (ISAACS, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of residents of Victoria, respectfully sheweth:

That the new Australian grant of $l.Sm to Pakistan refugees in India is completely inadequate and does not recognise the true value of the situation. Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government will immediately grant a further $10 million in aid to Pakistan refugees and use all diplomatic channels available to urge the creation of a political climate in East Pakistan which will enable the nine million refugees in India to return to their homeland. Your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Petition received.
