The Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Eyre Peninsula in South Australia respectfully showeth:

(a)   We, the telephone subscribers, of the township and district of Arno Bay, are unable now to derive the benefits of a continuous 24-hour daily telephone service as from the 7th day of November, 1976.

(   b ) We reside in an isolated country area and continuous telephone communication is essential for us to have access at all times to medical, fire services, police, and other essential and commercial purposes.

(c)   We, the petitioners, therefore humbly pray, that the Australian Government through its appropriate authority, responsible for telephone communication, will introduce at the earliest possible time an automatic telephone service to this area.

And your humble petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray. byMrWallis.

Petition received.
