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 we are deeply concerned at the threat to the continuation of symphony orchestras throughout Australia posed by the I.A.C. and Green reports.

We believe that the Government should not allow the symphony orchestras of Australia to be reduced in any way at all.

Your petitioners humbly pray that your honourable House will take steps to ensure the continuation and growth of our symphony orchestras, thereby ensuring that the quality of life of the people of this country shall be maintained.

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

Petition received.

Parklands in the Australian Capital Territory

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled.

The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Canberra and electors of the Divisions of Fraser and Canberra respectively showeth-

That we are utterly opposed to the National Capital Development Commissions proposals to erect eighteen town houses on Block 3 of Section 107, Ainslie.

The suggested development would destroy one of the most attractive small parks in Canberra. Section 107. which has been developed and maintained as a park since the original subdivision of the area, provides a variety of opportunities for recreation and relaxation and contributes to the physical and mental health of many people who come to the park to exercise dogs, play games, or simply to enjoy the views and peaceful surroundings.

Town houses would be completely out of character with the existing residences in the area and their construction on Block 3 of Section 107 would alienate the major pan of what is at present an invaluable community amenity.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the Government take measures to have the entire area of Section 107 gazetted as parkland as a matter of urgency.

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

Petition received.
