To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth that many Australians are concerned at the announced decision by the Australian Government on two different levels: The imposing of a new set of controls and cost reductions on the Australian Broadcasting Commission, while simultaneously easing such controls on the commercial radio and television stations.

We your petitioners do therefore humbly pray that the Australian Government:

1.   As a matter of urgency, reverse the decision to cut the ABCallocation.

2.   Confirm the former set of controls so that the independence of the ABC remains, and cause no easing of controls on commercial radio and television stations.

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

Petition received.
