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 there is absolutely no valid reason why C.B. Citizens Band radio', should not be made available to the general public in Australia, by the amendment of the Wireless Telegraphic Act.

Citizens Band radio is so far available in many countries, such as, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, U.S.A., Italy, Sweden, Germany etc. The many thousands of Australian citizens who appropriate this basic right of communication would also like to be able to do so legally.

These citizens who provide a nation wide communications network, which is used for safety and like reasons, could do so much more effectively when legalised.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Wireless Telegraphic Act be updated to provide for Citizens Band radio in Australia.

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

Petition received.
