To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The petition of the undersigned respectfully showeth, that they are deeply concerned with the low standard of the present Hunganan language program broadcast on radio station 2EA.

On behalf of the wide cross section of thousands of Australians of Hungarian origin, who understand the Hungarian language and have a knowledge of the more than a thousand years old Hungarian culture, and have good taste, protest in this way as a last resort, because all our efforts to date for a fundamental change have been in vain.

Your petitioners most humbly pray that this House of Representatives in Parliament assembled should help the Hungarian speaking community to regain confidence in the democratically elected House of Representatives known for its conscientious and wise judgement in restoring peace and faith in the democratic principles,which unfortunately are missing from present management set up of the Ethnic Radio broadcasters. The petitioners aim is to help with advice, and not to contol the broadcasting, and for this we would very much appreciate the opportunity for a small selected delegation to meet the Ministers concerned.

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

Petition received.
