To the Honourable the Speaker of the House of Representative in Parliament assembled. We, the undersigned citizens and /or taxpayers of Australia, speaking for ourselves and on behalf of the many who cannot become citizens because of their inability to speak English, request the House of Representatives to give immediate attention to the totally inadequate provision of English classes for migrants by the Australian Government.

Our intention is to impress upon the House that inability to speak English means discrimination-discrimination in the field of employment, in education and in social and political life.

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

Petition received.
