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

The humble petition of the undersigned employees of the Australian television industry respectfully showeth:

That should the Government allow the importation of colour television sets and component parts into Australia, the skilled and efficient workers employed in the Australian television industry may be deprived of their livelihood and Australia would lose the benefit of their developing technical expertise.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the House of Representatives urge the Government to take all necessary action to ensure that the television industry and those employed in that industry are not disadvantaged by allowing the importation of colour television sets and component parts into Australia.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray. by Mr Birrell.

Petition received.
