Mr Keith Johnson (BURKE, VICTORIA) - I present the following petition:

To the Speaker of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of citizens of the Commonwealth respectfully showeth:

That we express our deepest concern for the millions of our fellow men suffering in refugee camps in India and we, citizens of the suburb of Fawkner in the State of Victoria, ask our Government to:

1.   Press for a just solution, primarily through the United Nations, so that the refugees may return to their own homes.

2.   Forward high initial aid to alleviate present starvation and sickness.

3.   Continue economic aid through development programs involving Australian capital and personnel.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.

Petition received.
