To the Honourable the Speaker and members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. We, the undersigned citizens of the Commonwealth of Australia by this our humble petition respectfully showeth:

That the biological and medical implications created by the mining and milling of uranium are so great as to be a threat to present and future generations of mankind;

That there is no real assurance that safe methods of disposal and storage exist;

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray to delay any action on uranium mining and the filling of overseas quotas until a public education program on the medical, social and economic implications of nuclear power has been undertaken.

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

Petition received.
