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 existing Sunnybank Post Office continue to operate in its present location even after the opening of the new building in Mains Road.

The closing of this Public Service will cause considerable inconvenience to the people in this and adjacent areas who have had the service for many years.

Aged and Invalid Pensioners, housewives with small children, people without their own means of transport will be further inconvenienced in having to travel the additional distance to the new Post Office which is situated in an already congested area with no adequate parking facilities.

There are approximately 40 small businesses and shops consisting of food retailers, grocers, fruit shops, chemists, drapers, shoes, dress shop, solicitor, doctor, dentist, bank, hairdresser, bread kitchen etc. who will find it most inconvenient to operate their postal requirements from the new location.

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

Petition received.
