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 there is a need for a public telephone to be installed at Coombah Half- Way House for emergency use of the 225 km stretch of lonely highway linking Wentworth with Broken Hill, N.S.W.

That continued refusal by Telecom Australia to provide an emergency telephone threatens users of this highway with danger to the life and property.

That the cost of providing a service at the privately owned Coombah Roadhouse is prohibitive to the operator and should be undertaken as a service to the outback travelling public, by the Federal Transport Department.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. byMrFitzPatrick.

Petition received.
