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 National Compensation Bill 1974 and the proposals for a new Superannuation scheme for Australian Government employees discriminate in the payment of reversionary benefits against the members of families which:

(a)   are homosexual families;

(b)   do not fit the nuclear family pattern.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the National Compensation Bill 1974 and the new superannuation scheme for Australian Government employees be amended to provide for the payment of reversionary benefits to dependents of all families, however constituted.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. by Dr Klugman.

Petition received.
