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 decision of the Federal Government to restrict aid to multicultural education unfairly and disproportionately disadvantages students in N.S.W. Catholic schools.

We, the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth, do therefore humbly pray the Commonwealth Government:

That, pending the increase or redistribution of funds in a more equitable manner as per section 5.6 of the Report of the Australian Schools Commission 1977-79, emergency interim Australian Government financial assistance be offered to those N.S.W. Catholic schools, with large numbers of students of migrant background, that had anticipated assistance for 1977 as per precedents established in previous years.

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

Petition received.
