To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled:

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That the undersigned men and women of Australia believe in a Christian way of life; and that no democracy can thrive unless its citizens are responsible and law abiding.

Your petitioners therefore humbly, pray that the members in Parliament assembled will see that the powerful communicator, television, is used to build into the nation those qualities of character which make a democracy work - integrity, teamwork and a sense of purpose by serving, and that television be used to bring faith in Cod to the heart of the family and national life.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Gorton, Mr Coates, Sir John Cramer, Mr MacKellar, Mr Ruddock, and Mr Wentworth.

Petitions received.
